About Juli Lepley

I have lived in this home for 30 years. My children were raised here and my grandchildren have spent 3 years of their life here! It is a great home for children! I have been an educator for 38 years now. I taught for 10 years in South Haven. I'm originally from Ohio and went to BGSU for my undergraduate degree. I received my Masters degree from GVSU in 2004! I spent the last 10 years working as a Special Education Administrator for the OAISD and am now retired!!

Juli Lepley purchased this house in 1987

Why Juli Lepley chose Southwest

This is a two acre wooded property across from Lake Michigan with beautiful sunset views! The backyard is private with room for volleyball, football and baseball games. There's a basketball hoop at the end of the driveway. My children and grandchildren have learned to ride their bikes, skate boards and roller blades down the long private driveway. The yard and deck are surrounded by beautiful flowers, ground cover and bushes. There's a new grill, two patio tables and chairs, lounge chairs and a picnic table for family meals.

What makes this house unique

This secluded wooded property allows your family the private area you desire for your vacation.

I am able to book with credit card payments also.

Beautiful and relaxing escape from your worries

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 loved our stay at Lepley Lane! Juli was easy to work with and getting in/out was simple. The property feels like a wooded escape, with so much privacy, yard space and being surrounded by trees. We saw deer and foxes scampering across the lawn while there. And it's just across the street from the lake with beautiful sunset views every night. You can see some of the sunset over the lake while sitting on the deck, but I recommend walking down to the end of the driveway for the full spectacle! It's on a very quiet (dead end) road, so not many cars pass by. We spent a ton of time on the huge deck and used the firepit and new grill quite a bit. Kids loved playing basketball, volleyball, climbing in the treehouse, and playing cards on the deck. And we all agreed that we had the best sleep of our lives here - quiet house, comfortable beds, cool breezes and lots of fans (and great A/C on the one hot night we had). We're so well-rested now!

Location was really convenient to a lot of South Haven activities. We biked or drove to several different beaches, the closest (First Street) being about a mile and the furthest (North Beach) about two miles. Downtown is also an easy 2-mile bike ride. Head in the other direction and you're a 5-minute drive to berry picking at Riverbend, Sherman's ice cream, the Art Barn for crafting, a huge Meijer grocery store, and an ER/Urgent Care (in case you have disaster-prone kids like ours). We also loved climbing the dunes at Van Buren State Park and renting SUPs at Dyckman Beach.

House itself was well-equipped with kitchen items, linens, games, internet, and whatever else we needed. It was super roomy and could easily fit 10 people with room to breathe. Basement was a cool place for older kids to hang out with sofa bed, big-screen TV, air hockey table, board games, and their very own kitchen.

We'd love to return to South Haven and Lepley Lane! I am relaxed just thinking about it!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Lepley House this summer and would highly recommend the property and Juli herself who was a pleasure to deal with. The house itself is very well stocked and clean and comfortable. Large enough for a big group (we had 4 adults and 3 teens), but also had lots of smaller areas where you could be alone and read/relax. The garden was wonderful with plenty of seating areas and a large grass area for soccer/baseball. The grounds have been beautifully planted and the garden is a real pleasure to be in. The firepit was well used by us all in the evenings too. The area itself is beautiful - the house is set back on a very quiet road. Its only a few minutes drive to many beaches and to South Haven which is a brilliant holiday destination - we jet skied, sailed and shopped in the many antique and gift shops. For us - it was a perfect destination and we will plan to return.

Great house, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 gentlemen staying at Lepley Lane for a weekend bachelor party. We were extremely comfortable, made good use of the yard, volleyball net/court, basketball hoop, firepit, treehouse, and patio. The grill was brand-new, and worked like a dream. The kitchen was stocked with cooking accouterments. We had no complaints. Wonderful place to stay - highly recommended.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised - the home was everything we expected and more! The large yard was beautiful with a great fire pit for late night s'mores and laughter. There was treehouse that our grandchildren loved exploring. The long driveway was fun for the children to ride their tricycles and the adults to play basketball together. Best of all, several beaches are a short 5 minute drive. We intentionally chose a home that wasn't directly on the water so we didn't have to worry about young children wandering. The floor plan was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 2 children. The house is clean and well-maintained. Juli answered all my questions promptly. We would definitely like to return to South Haven.

Gorgeous and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 girl friends and I along with our children spent an incredible weekend in this home! The owner, Juli, was extremely helpful... Responded very quickly to our inquiry and even left us a sweet treat for us upon our arrival! The home far exceeded our expectations! It was clean and comfy!! Beautifully decorated as well! The kids had more then enough room to play inside and out!

The property was super easy to locate... Driving to the beaches and in to town was a breeze as well!

This was our first time in South Haven. We fell in love with the town.

We would definitely come back to this gorgeous home again! Highly recommend it! Thanks again for your hospitality Juli!
