Why Jimmy chose Bloomingdale

We wanted to be close to Chicago, but far enough way from it all to really 'get away.' We love the all-sports lake, private beach, place to dock the boat, Sport Court, mature trees, secluded setting (you really can't see any neighbors), hills for sledding, and more. Kids love it out here. So do adults!

What makes this house unique

Calm, quiet and peace await you! This home has all the amenities of new construction, but is set in a secluded, country setting.

We have been to this property several times, and every year there are great improvements made since Jimmy has been the owner. This year we really enjoyed the new deck and seating area he put in at the beach. The outdoor couches were comfortable for the adults to relax, and the deck is nicely shaded in the afternoon. We go with extended family with younger children and the beach is perfect. It is shallow enough for them inbetween the piers to safely play and enjoy themselves but deep enough by the end of the pier for older kids and adults to jump off. There is plenty of sand to play with, and kept clean. The basketball court is great for young kids to ride their bikes or scooters, and we really utilized the front yard this year - there is a new patio with seating so we could sit in front with a fire and watch the kids ride their bikes. The aesthetic updates inside are so nice, it definitely feels like a lake house. I had to reach out to Jimmy once while we were there with a question about the lights and he quickly responded. It's an easy drive into South Haven for restaurants and shopping, and the nearby town of Gobles has a small market for last minute food items, and places to buy firewood and ice. Easy and scenic drive to golf courses in the area. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Jenna, we are so grateful to have your wonderful family come stay with us year after year. Our vision when we moved in was to take an already quiet and relaxing place and turn it into something even better and more accommodating for all of our guests! It has easily become our "happy place," even during the off-season when I find myself tearing everything apart to improve! Hope to see you again next year!!! Jimmy

Fantastic Family vacay!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great!! Nice little Lake beach with so many water toys, kayaks, and a paddle board. Home was very family friendly, clean, and had everything we needed. Jimmy was also easy to contact, communication was easy and fast. I would definitely go back, wish we had more time there.

Perfect for family get-away - beautiful & peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This was a 50th wedding anniversary celebration for my parents. There were 25 of us all together -- with 17 kids ranging from 3 to 19. We've taken several trips before as a family and rented houses, but this is by far the cleanest, most well furnished/stocked house we've ever stayed in. The only thing that would have made it better for our large party is to have one more full bath. Both the house and the property are absolutely beautiful. There's plenty to keep everyone entertained, both inside and out. And even when it rained, there was plenty of space for us all to spread out inside.

Jimmy is fantastic to work with. He was very patient with my many, many questions, both prior to our arrival and after we got there. He was always very quick to respond, even late one night when there was a widespread power outage. He responded quickly, got it reported, and followed up with us. The power company had power restored in just a couple of hours.

The property is in a remote area, but just a short 20 minute drive to South Haven. Most of our family has AT&T and did not have cell service. There are two that have Verizon, though, and they were fine.

If we vacation in this area again, we will definitely book this property if available.

Owner's Response: Jennifer, Congratulations to your parents!! We're so happy to hear your group had a great time! We're always busy in the off-season trying to make things a little more accommodating and inviting for our guests! We hope you and your family will come back and visit us again sometime soon! Jimmy

perfect peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Jimmy was super accommodating, flexible, available, and so nice.

Amazingly pretty and quiet spot...practically had the whole lake to ourselves during the week!

House was large enough for all 22 kids and adults; fantastic yard to run and play; tennis and basketball games; late night pool tournaments; gorgeous new docks and deck with a perfect shady spot for elderly parents to relax and take in all the water fun- which included kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, water football and frisbee, floating with a cocktail, and since we rented a boat also tubing and skiing.

We were a little short on towels but there is washer, dryer and detergent so no problem.

Didn't quite have enough sheets/pillow cases for futon and couches but were brought right over with a phone call. The only real drawback for us was the lack of a main bedroom and bathroom on the ground level for grandma and grandpa, but we made do. Would highly recommend a stay here!

Beautiful home in a very private location.

  • 5 of 5

We had three families and lots of kids. There was plenty of room for all of us. We were very thankful for all the games since the weather wasn’t good. And lots of toys for toddlers, too. There was everything anyone would need provided. Close to South Haven and Kalamazoo. The beach area and docks were wonderful, although the lake itself was full of vegetation. Except for between the docks that the owners keep clear. We would stay again and hope for better weather!

Perfect Family Vacation Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

Our immediate family vacationed at this property just after the 4th of July holiday. This included 4 adult couples with 5 boys under the age of 5. We had more than enough room in the house and the amenities at this home/property is endless. This home is very kid-friendly with an array of toys and games on the main and basement floors. There are plenty of adult games too that creates a fun, yet competitive atmosphere. The home was clean and well maintained.

The outdoor sport court provided the boys (and the adults) many hours of fun! The private beach and docks allowed for a relaxing and peaceful gathering place. The lake itself is secluded, calm and very beautiful. We also rented a pontoon for 3 days from a nearby boat rental company. Launching the boat and returning the boat was flawless. We were able to tour the lake, swim and fish which was well worth the investment.

Our family had a very comfortable stay and loved everything about this property. Jimmy was excellent to work with and everything was exactly as described. We would definitely recommend this vacation destination and look forward to staying here in the future!
