About the Property

The Beach House -- 3 Bedrooms, sleeps 8, 2 baths, low bluff - AWESOME BEACH!!!

Cozy year-round cottage sits on low bluff overlooking 70’ of private Lake Michigan beach. Stairs from deck lead to sea grass, sugar sand, and shallow water with sandbars. Great place for sand castles during the day and bonfires in the evening. Built in 1910 and recently updated, the original arts and crafts interior includes wooden ceiling beams and hardwood floors. Three bedrooms (two upstairs; one downstairs) sleep 8 comfortably. Wide front porch overlooks lake and deck .


Amenities: Fully-equipped kitchen (remodeled 2011) includes electric range, double oven, dishwaher, soapstone countertops and floor tile. Separate dining area seats 8-10 comfortably. Sitting area has Cable/TV/ DVD, stereo CD/cassette player, and docking station for iPod/iPad. House provides unlimited local phone calls and WiFi Internet access. AC provides comfort in the summer, but don’t miss out on the great cross-breezes from the Lake. Linens provided, along with kitchen equipment, lawn chairs, beach toys, games, videos, and many, many books for all ages. Bring your own beach towels!

Things to do!: Large shaded back yard (70’x150’) provides lots of space for games and seating area for family and friends. Shed is stocked with beach toys and lawn chairs. Take a ¾ mile walk south from the house along the beach to look at the South Haven light house or people watch on North Beach. Head north from the house along the beach to look for sea glass and view steep Lake Michigan Bluffs. Walk or bike across Dyckman bridge and into town (1.25 mile). Shop at local art galleries, food shops, and antique stores in town, or take a 15 minute drive to Saugatuck/Douglas area for more shops and restaurants. Visit one of the local vineyards, and De Grandchamps’ blueberry farm. Pick seasonal fruits in surrounding area. Play golf at public or private courses. Charter a fishing boat or sail with Friends Goodwill--a 3-masted schooner and historic replica. The water sport shop on Dyckman offers a good selection of sports rentals, from paddle boards and jet skis to kite boards and kayaks.

Great location!: South Haven is about 2.5 hours from Chicago and 2.5 hours from Southeast Michigan. It’s a great place to meet up for families scattered across the Northern Midwest. Nightlife includes fireflies and shooting stars, bonfires and ghost stories. Good pubs and restaurants also available in downtown South Haven, or close by in Saugatuck, Douglas, and Holland. List of recommended pubs and eateries available in welcome book at house.

Other Amenities

  • Please bring your own beach towels - washer/dryer provided.

There is a nice store called Outpost Sports at the corner of Dyckman and North Shore Drive that has beach gear, beachwear and all manner of water toy rentals. It's an easy 4 block walk....moreless
