Property description

Perfect for a large family gathering! This historic 5 bedroom, 2 bath Victorian has a bonus third floor that the kids can make into their hideaway during the course of your stay. The third floor is perfect for kids to nap, play games, etc...

The kitchen and dining area are open-concept, with a double oven, 6 range gas burner, and plenty of counter space to enjoy family-style cooking! The dining room seats 8-10 with ease, and an additional 5 can eat with the family at the kitchen counter on bar stools. (See photos.)

The dining area opens to a wonderful, 550 square foot patio with a built-in fire pit. There is plenty of seating outside on the patio for the family to gather, mingle, and grill, while enjoying the fire! On either side of the house there is a large yard for the kids to play. The home sits on a double lot on a very lightly traveled corner.

There are two bedrooms downstairs, one is very large and one is smaller. Both have a queen bed. The large bedroom has a fireplace and two built-ins.

There are two full bathrooms, one down and one up. Both are very nice and large. The upper bathroom has a shower and a whirlpool tub.

The living room is large and has two full-size couches, a love-seat, and a large round chair that seats two people. It has a 47' brand new 1080p smart tv.

There are three bedrooms up. All are large. One has a king bed and a twin bed. One has two double beds. One has a queen and a twin.

On the finished third floor, there are four twin beds, a table and four chairs, about 6 bean bag chairs, some games and puzzles, and a TV with a play station 3.

All told, 14 can sleep in beds in the five bedrooms in beds. There is "bonus" space that can sleep an additional 2 adults, and an additional 2 to 4 children under 2.

This is a lovely home where family can gather and enjoy a wonderful week in South Haven! If you enjoy family cooking, dining, and enjoying time outdoors on the patio, this home is for you!

If this home is booked during the period you would like to stay, or if you need another home/more room, please check out my other homes on vrbo. Number 360875 is about 2 blocks away from this home, and is 6 Bedrooms, 2 full baths, and 1 half bath. Number 659488 is 2 blocks to the beach, but further from downtown. It is a 7 bedroom, 3 full bath, with the option to rent the "outbuilding," which is an open-concept, multi-purpose game room/living space with a full bath that is perfect for rinsing off after the beach, watching movies, or hanging out at the custom-built bar after the kids go to bed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I live in South Haven approximately one block from this home. You'll see me riding my bike and walking in the neighborhood with my kiddos during your stay! I have even been persuaded by certain groups to stop in for a refreshing beverage, if I happen to ride by while they're out on the patio enjoying the fire pit!

Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
It's beautiful, the yard is wonderful, it's plenty big to host large groups, the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, and the location is great--only about 3 blocks to town and about 6 to the beach!
