Property description

This home was made for FAMILIES! Our South Haven Retreat was built in 2000 as a gathering place for our extended family and friends. Situated in a private setting close to town and Lake Michigan, it offers peace and quiet, but is only minutes from all the action….truly the BEST of BOTH worlds!

This 5,000 square foot home has spacious rooms on 3 levels that all ages can enjoy. The upstairs features 2 bedrooms that share a bath with a combination tub and shower, a master bedroom with a bath that features a garden tub and a separate shower, plus a loft with a small tv and futon sleeper. The main level has a large living room, a dining room and well equipped kitchen that are open to each other, a ½ bath, an office that can be used as an additional sleeping area, a breezeway and a full size laundry room. The lower level, has a bedroom, a full bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower, an exercise area, a recreational area with ping pong and foosball tables, an entertainment center with surround sound and a 65 inch television. Plenty of movies and a popcorn machine complete the fun! WIFI and cable are available throughout the house.

As comfortable as the house is, the outside spaces are what make this property truly unique. The open backyard easily accommodates a volleyball net and a variety of other yard games. The extensive driveway offers a place to ride bikes, skateboard, shoot baskets, get artistic with sidewalk chalk, etc. Plus there is PLENTY OF PARKING!!! The large, welcoming front porch is a perfect place to enjoy shade on a hot summer day. The multi level back deck is a favorite spot for sun bathing by day and dining at night. The BBQ grill, built in benched seating and deck swing make entertaining a breeze! Later in the evening, light the torches and enjoy star gazing around the fire pit in the backyard garden area.
Our South Haven Retreat’s convenient location is just minutes from downtown and all that it offers. Plus, there are several beaches within a 2 mile radius, including beautiful Van Buren State Park. Pilgrim Haven Nature Preserve is within walking distance. The newly completed biking trail that runs right into town is ¼ mile away. One of the area’s most popular UPick Blueberry farms is right next door! The advantages of this location are too numerous to list, they must be experienced. Bring YOUR family and discover them all.
