Property description

75' of lake frontage offers our guests spectacular water views. The property is an acre of land so you can take advantage of the space by playing games and enjoying night time bonfires. You can really create lasting family memories here!

Our lake, Van Auken, is a semi-private lake so it's never overcrowded and everyone is friendly! It is well known for its great fishing as well for crappie, bluegill, bass, pike, perch, sunfish and pickerel. As it is a 244-acre all-sports lake with a maximum depth of 46 feet, speedboats, jetskis, kayaks, canoes and sailboats all coexist peacefully and everyone enjoys the water in their own way.

In relation to enjoying the water, our 100' pier offers plenty of parking for watercraft. Bring your speedboat, fishing boat or jetskis and have a blast! The boat launch is a two-minute drive away.

So after a day enjoying the sun and the water, fire up the grill and play some lawn games while the steaks are grilling!

South Haven

In beautiful Southwest Michigan and all the harbor towns in the area there is an unlimited number of both indoor and outdoor activities for the whole family! Up and down the lakeshore from Grand Haven all the way down to South Haven there are events and attractions all year round. Music festivals, fairs, fests, farmers markets, concerts, and water activities abound! South Haven is the closest harbor town and offers beautiful clean beaches, awesome restaurants such as Clementines, tons of cute shops and antique stores, winery tours and cool bars/nightclubs -- including the Idler which is a large sightseeing boat moored to the pier which offers mouthwatering food and good entertainment.


Owner info

About the owner: My father bought the property back in 1969, long before lakefront properties were popular. My grandfather, an avid fisherman, had retired there for the plentiful and varied varieties of fish and my father fell in love with the beauty, peace and tranquility of the lake. As kids, we went there every weekend during every summer and had so many awesome experiences! My Dad's favorite thing to do after a day on the lake was to spread a blanket and take a snooze in the shade on the hill. My Dad passed 20 years ago and it's the only place I feel a connection to him. I grew up with all of the other kids on the lake -- roaming the countryside, skiing, sailing. Now it's my two children growing up the same way I did -- with my friends' children -- learning to wakeboard at age 4, going fruit picking, exploring through the weeds for turtles and frogs, making s'mores at the bonfire. Life is good when you're at the lake :)

Why the Owner Chose Bangor, MI, USA:
This property appealed to my Dad because it was the last in a line of cottages, which offered more privacy as the property to the east has remained undeveloped for 100 years. The property is just under an acre and we've enjoyed huge games of softball, relay races, obstacle courses and just room to run!

The Unique Benefits at this Mobile Home:
Our property has the unique benefit of being on a semi-private lake, so that it's never as busy as Paw Paw Lake or any of the Sister Lakes. 90% of the homes on the lake have been owned by the same people for two generations or more so there aren't too many strangers around. There are no resorts on the lake and very few people rent their homes. Also, we are right in the center of all of the activities that the Harbor Towns area have to offer. There's everything within about a 30-mile radius to do, including zoos, beaches, hot air balloon rides, rafting, winery tours, etc.
