About Richard Riggs

I grew up in Southeast Michigan near Ann Arbor and went to school at Michigan State. After a number of years away I returned to live in my family home, an 1873 farmhouse where my great grandfather cleared the land. I have enjoyed the updates and remodeling that comes with the vintage of the house, but mostly appreciate the park-like setting in the area.

Richard Riggs purchased this House in 2013

Why Richard Riggs chose South Haven Charter Township

I have enjoyed many trips to the Lake Michigan beaches and enjoyed the serenity of the water, dunes and breezes. The ability to observe the sunsets over the water with feet in the sand and to hear waves come ashore is an especially relaxing moment. To do so in an area which is notable for blueberries and close to other great shore communities a short drive away was particularly appealing to me. I hope you will come to appreciate this environment, as well! There are seasonal events and activities to enjoy from festivals for film and blueberry lovers, as well as year-round benefits of hiking and biking.

What makes this House unique

The proximity to the beach and lighthouse was an attraction to the area, and this house offered a great open floor-plan which will allow people to stay engaged and appreciate time together. A bicycle store is around the corner if you wish to rent bikes for a trip around town or down the Kal Haven trail. There are unique shops in South Haven and a short drive takes you to the Saugatuck community for even more shopping with a creative, artistic emphasis.

We love how there is a long table with enough chairs for all 10 of us so we could be together for dinner and playing games. The beds were all very comfortable. The home was clean and well kept. We will be renting next year.

                                                                      Great Home - Great Location!!!

                                                                      Great home, better than the pictures.

The home was clean and had everything we needed, the kids especially loved the bunk beds. We will definitely book the same home again.

                                                                      Better than we could've imagined!

It was clean and had everything we needed! Easy check-in and check-out, walking distance from everything downtown. Loved it!

Loved the big kitchen and huge dining room table for meals. All the bedrooms are good size. If you have kids the back room with two twins and bunk beds are a perfect fit. Everything was very clean and well equipped with lots of towels for bathrooms and kitchen was well stocked with utensils and dinnerware. Best part is how close you are to downtown and the beach. The whole family is in favor of a return visit for next year.
