Property description

Location Location Location ... If you are looking for an affordable cottage close to the Beach you have found it here at Lake View Haven! This home sits in a family friendly neighborhood a block from quiet South Beach and Kids Corner Park.

Due to recent VRBO Changes, feel free to contact me by phone to avoid Unnecessary Fees and Delays at 219-616-8654.

Our family has been visiting South Haven for many years and love all that the area has to offer. We recently purchased this cottage to enjoy with our two sons (13 & 17) and to share with others such as you.

Our days here are spent doing as little or as much as we please. A typical day may start with a jog on the beach and then a walk into town to enjoy breakfast and the Farmers Market. After a bit of relaxation, we pack up the coolers & beach gear and head 1 block to the water. Hours are spent splashing in the waves, building sand castles, playing frisbee, paddle boarding and even surfing. When we need a break from the sunshine, we leave our gear and head back to the cottage for lunch. Then back to the beach for more fun.

A half block away is Kids Corner Park, where many rounds of hide & seek are played within the giant wood playset and swings. The adjacent Baseball Field, overlooking Lake Michigan, is also available for everyone.

Bikes are available for your use and allow the kids to explore the area safely on the quiet streets. Our boys like to ride into town to catch a movie, grab ice cream or visit the candy store.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms, one with a Queen Bed & Futon and the other with a Twin Bed and Trundle. There is also a sofa sleeper in the main floor living room and floor space for an air mattress if you choose to bring one. The Kitchen is spacious and fully equipped and has an eat-in dining area. The house also has one large bathroom which includes a Tub/Shower. There is also a washer & dryer available for your convenience. One note, the living room and front bed room have a slightly lower ceiling height which is not a problem for guests, however we like to mention. We prefer the windows open to hear the waves crashing and feel the cool breezes, however there is air conditioning and baseboard heat when necessary.

Enjoy a good book on the large screened front porch or head to the back yard to use the grill and have a picnic. One of our favorite things to do is head back to the beach in the evening and enjoy the incredible sunsets over the lighthouse, which never disappoint.

We are certain you and your family will enjoy the cottage and create memories to last a lifetime.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with the town of South Haven several years ago when we visited to celebrate our Anniversary! We have since returned many times & decided to become property owners here. We drive an hour and a half from Valparaiso, Indiana and feel as if we are a lifetime away! We chose to purchase here to share special moments with our two sons, family & friends.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
This property fits our family perfectly because Location is everything! Just steps from Kids Corner Park and South Beach, there is always something to do. Also, it is just a short bike ride or walk into downtown where we enjoy spending time together.
