This community is a charming, quaint beach town offering the sophistication of the arts, boutique shops, great restaurants and attractions.

Whether you are coming during the bustling summer months or coming to enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of fall or winter there is truly something for everyone to enjoy year-round.

Enjoy a stroll on the beach with some morning yoga. You won't want to miss the most breathtaking sunsets, check for times when you arrive. Sunning, swimming, paddle boarding, fishing, the activities at the beach are endless.

Dinning and Nightlife are also abundant. Some of my favorite haunts are Black River Tavern that shows all the Chicago sporting events, Hawks Head for after golf or brunch, Taste for tapas, Tello's for Ittalian, or the Thirsty Perch for their Sunday bloody mary bar are just a few of my favorites.

Shopping in the beautiful downtown is a joyful experience, great stores, great deals, great fun. My favorites are Bayberry Cottage, Props, and the Olive Cart.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Our family has owned this home for five years and 2015 will be our first year on VRBO - Yeah! We love our home, and are excited to share it with you. We live in Chicago but enjoy our time immensely in South Haven. A short two hour drive from the city, but you really feel like you've gone somewhere new.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
My very first South Haven experience came when my husband rented me and my girlfriends a house to celebrate my 35th birthday. We came over in late September and had the time of our lives. We laughed, we shopped, we ate, and we walked the beach and saw the most spectacular sunsets! I came home from this trip with sand in my shoes, and a smile on my face. I knew from that trip that I would want to experience this same feeling again and again. That’s when I knew I needed to own my own special spot in the lovely town of South Haven. I searched for three years before I found my perfect home. I had several criteria in mind, but most importantly, it needed to be walking distance to the beach as well as to the downtown. Once I get there I rarely ever drive my car during my stay unless I am going to play golf and I need to tote my clubs. The house is beautifully appointed, all the beds have queen pillow top mattresses. The yard has been professionally landscaped and even has an herb garden in the back. There is a great patio equipped with electricity right off the kitchen convenient for outdoor dining or just relaxing with a cocktail after a day of sun and fun at the beach. The kitchen if fully equipped to cook meals at home. We offer a fully stocked game room, working wood burning fireplace, outdoor grill, plenty of bikes and so much more. It is my family’s great delight to share our home with you. We hope you will choose our home to begin making your own “South Haven Happy Memories”.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house has been professionally decorated, and there is style and whimsy at every turn. It is an older home that was well built and well maintained. We are only the third owner of this magnificent property. The original wood staircase has been preserved as well as much of the wood moldings. The home has a historic charm with all the modern amenities. The gardens have been professionally installed and well maintained, with a great patio equipped with electric for music, cooking, and late night fun.
