About John Burhans
We fell in love with South Haven many years ago and decided to build this beautiful house on North Beach. We have been sharing it with our guests from all over Michigan and the Midwest for 10 years now. We live only 20 minutes away and pride ourselves on giving personal attention to our guests.
John Burhans purchased this House in 2008
Why John Burhans chose South Haven Charter Township

What makes this House unique
This beautiful rental property is directly on North Beach in the middle of Lakeshore Drive. North Beach is one of the extensive and beautiful pure sand beach in the Midwest. It is a short hop to the water with plenty of activities on the beach, including jungle gyms, beach volleyball, concession stand at the far end of the beach, piers for walking and fishing, and close to downtown. The 3 stories allow you magnificent views of the beach and Lake Michigan, yet provide intimacy and privacy for indoor activities.

Right on the beach!
Great house, could not be any closer to the beach. Easily enough space for 7 adults. Hosts were great.
Great location, really nice beach
My group of 8 adults and 4 kids fit perfectly I this house. It opens right up onto north beach, which is immaculately maintained each morning, and offers great views of the sunset while grilling on the front patio. Half our group came from Detroit while the other half was from Chicago, and south haven was an easy destination for both (save for Indiana road construction).
Owner met us at the house and did a walk through. The house was stocked with plenty of beach chairs and sand toys. Two cars fit in the garage, and additional cars can park at the beach for $30 for the week. The first night, after the beach traffic left, we were able to move our two overflow cars into the parking spots right in front of the house, which was just as convenient as parking in the garage.
The area around north beach doesn't have too much in terms of shops or restaurants (though there is a nice coffee shop), but it is an easy 1 mile walk into the downtown part of south haven. On the days with excessive waves, we explored downtown and did kayak rentals to travel up Black River.
Overall it was a real nice time and the house met every expectation. Would definitely visit south haven and rent here again.
Perfect cottage for family reunion!
What a great spot for a family reunion in June! This cottage was plenty big for our group and met all of our expectations. We loved the fact that it faces one of the most beautiful beaches in Michigan with a wide sugar sand beach, playground equipment on the beach facing the front deck and of course Lake Michigan. There is a view of the lake from every room except 2 bathrooms. We like the fact that the kitchen and dining area on the first floor are big and the living room on the second floor has a gorgeous view of the lake. Each floor has a balcony. The cottage is on the north side of channel and it is easy to walk to town. The owner has outfitted the cottage with all the necessary cooking items and there is a big grill on the front deck, new this summer (2017). All the bedrooms were comfortable and with 4 full bathrooms everyone could easily get ready in the am. The town of South Haven has cute shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops and places for ice cream. All the fast food and chain stores are on the outskirts of town so the quaintness of the downtown area has been preserved. We highly recommend this cottage and hope to return next summer. Would be a nice weekend get away in the fall.
Beachy Family Reunion on Beautiful Lake Michigan
Our family rented this house for a family reunion for mid-June. The beach was gorgeous and just steps away from the deck of the large cottage. We had young children in our group, so the swings and playground slides provided much entertainment for the kiddos. Lake Michigan was spectacular and so were the sunsets. The interior is visually stunning with pastel walls, hardwood floors throughout, great grill, and large open kitchen. Walking out on the pier and into the town of South Haven was easily accessible. Would love to come back.
Location & Sunsets!
This location was everything we wanted for a special reunion with friends! We rented this fantastic house for 4 couples and it was very comfortable and roomy. It was wonderful to have a huge kitchen and dining area facing the beautiful lake front. The pictures and property description are right- the views are spectacular! All of the balconies are front row seats to the amazing sunsets. Having the beautiful clean beach just steps outside the door was so convenient for walks and having fun. South Haven is a very nice small town. Easy to walk around. Lots to do in the area.We rented bikes, did a fishing charter and even took a ride on a historic tall ship. Having a 2 car garage was also a nice bonus. This place has everything you need for a wonderful vacation and the owners are extremely nice to work with. We want to return here next year and would highly recommend this property.
A wonderful house, a wonderful location
We were fortunate enough to be invited as guests of some friends who were staying at this house in March, 2016. The location, right on the Lake Michigan shore, is fantastic. We were very impressed with the beauty of the house as well. The dining area is magnificent with its view of Lake Michigan, the second floor family room was a wonderful place to spend our evenings chatting with our friends, and my absolutely favorite room was the third floor bedroom, which could not possibly have had a better view or been more nicely furnished. While not all of the shops in South Haven were open since we were there in the off-season, the ones that were provided enjoyable shopping and the shopkeepers were all the kind of delighful small-town friendly that I remember from my childhood. All in all, it was a wonderful place to vacation.
