Why Josh Gerry chose Southwest

This property is ideal for one or two families to escape to the beach for a week..close to town...pool...park...etc...

What makes this house unique

At 2 hours from Chicago..its amazing that you can feel so 'far away' and relaxed so quickly.......!

Fantastic Stay,

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Summers Gate was fantastic. The house was spotless. Everything that we needed was provided, towels, band aids, medicines, popcorn, ice, you name it was thought of. The location cannot be beat.

Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house to celebrate my sister for her bridal weekend. It had a great kitchen / living space to visit and all of the bedrooms that we used were extremely spacious and comfortable. We especially loved the balcony where we did yoga in the afternoon and the view from every room in the back of the house was breathtaking. The fire pit was the perfect place for us to sit around a fire for hours on the last night and watch the sunset while listening to the waves rolling in. The house is on a really cute street with extremely friendly neighbors.

2-day getaway for a group of close friends (5couples) NYE holiday

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express how wonderful my stay was at this residence! I and a handful of close friends were looking for a calm relaxing quick getaway from the craziness of Chicago during the NYE holiday with the hopes of enjoying some time amongst great company! I've visited south haven before on a retreat with several other medical professionals during the fall season and it's a great place that's secluded enough for a "getaway feel"yet not too far off from the real world. Perfect for groups of friends, couples, families, and children. The house was absolutely beautiful. Spacious yet very warm and inviting. All the amenities listed in the online description were all made available and directions were accurate. It was very clean and up to date. We had everything in the house which made our trip so much less stressful. The view of the lake is breathtaking! Pool is in the backyard and the beach is a 1 minute walk- in essence almost in the back yard. Should we have needed anything the stores are less than 10 minutes driving distance. I was worried about our check in but I didn't run into any problems entering leaving etc. The rooms were spacious, and had everything we could have asked for. The living area on the second floor was roomy enough for a group of 10 (6 couples) to relax, eat, and enjoy each others company. Kitchen was fully stocked so we didn't have to go out and buy anything. Although our stay was during the winter season and we didn't utilize the pool or partake in beach activities I could see that if we stayed during the summer we would have access to all the necessary equipment to enjoy the water activities. The owner Josh Gerry was always quick to email back to any inquiries I had prior to my stay. Booking was easy.. We used the grill and fireplaces without any difficulties . The online details on vrbo about this residence really had all the information we ever needed to access the Internet, tv's etc. I've always had some hiccups at hotels or other home rentals but I was pleasantly surprised when everything promised was there and everything ran so smoothly! The pictures Of this home online really don't do it justice. I was absolutely speechless when I walked in because this home was beyond any of my expectations-" modern but homey". I would recommend this place in a heart beat to anyone looking to stay in south haven even during the winter season. I would very much love to stay heRe again!

Lakefront Home with Beach, Pool and Beautiful Sunsets

  • 4 of 5

This home is a great set up for a family vacation. The pool in the backyard, fire pit by the lake and private beach access was enjoyed by the whole family. My only criticism is that the house and furnishings are a little worn for the high weekly price of this rental.

Beautiful. Everything we could have asked for!

  • 4 of 5

We thought the home was lovely! It suited our family quite well. Everything we needed was there. The pool was awesome. The firepit was fun, until the trees fell, then no one really ventured out there too much! 🤔 The little ones enjoyed the play structure. We rarely used any of the tvs. Thank you for offering this beautiful home. We hope to use it again next year, unless you should sell it!

This home was a perfect place to stay for our family!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect place to stay for our family!! With three families there plenty of gathering spaces and private spaces that were clean, comfortable and beautiful. We all loved the pool and the children loved the bunk room and the playground. The fire pit was a great place to roast marshmallows and watch the fireworks on the lake. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed to prepare meals. The outside grill was fantastic. This was a great place to vacation!! We will be back! Thank you!!
