Absolutely amazing!

We sharred this property with 3 other couples. It was an amazing stay. So comfortable, quiet, relaxing but just minutes away from anything we needed. Will definitely book again.

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find a beautiful and immaculately clean home close to everything but just just a block off the main road and seemingly in our own little world. We enjoyed the evenings on the private back porch and the huge kitchen. This is our third summer in the St Jo area and I hope Helen's home will be available when we come back next year. Thank you.

Perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home exceeded all my hopes to function as a home base for my family and friends as we hosted a wedding in the Benton Harbor area. Lots of room and bathrooms. Location was perfect for other things we had such as the pre-wedding activities. Large kitchen area worked out perfectly for pre-wedding wedding and hair and make-up goings on. Also really enjoyed and used the lovely back porch for morning coffee, etc.

We enjoyed our stay. It was great!

  • 5 of 5

My pregnant daughter and her husband slept in the basement. The basement does not have great privacy especially for light and sound. However our stay provided just what we needed! We had a wonderful 3 days.

Amazing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for our anniversary and it was an absolutely amazing weekend! The house itself is unbelievable. It's huge and has so many rooms and bathrooms! There were only 4 of us but we felt like the house could sleep 8 comfortably! The house was exactly as pictured. It was amazingly clean too! And it is stocked with everything you can imagine! Helen was awesome to work with too! She was so sweet and informative and gave us great suggestions for restaurants, wineries, and places to go. She was very easy to get in contact with and was very prompt if she needed to call me back. It's located 1 mile of downtown st. Joseph's where there are plenty of restaurants, bars, and the lake. We had plenty of yummy lunches and dinners and took half a day to explore the lake path and the pier. For breakfast the Mason Jar is about a half mile from the house and offers very delicious brunch type food. For lunch and dinner we ate at The Buck(great burgers and beer!), Bread+Bar(awesome farm to table seasonal restaurant-kinda pricy, but awesome!) and Coach's(typical bar food). There's a late night bar called 221 main that was open until 2 and plays pretty good music to dance. The michgan wine trail is no more than a half hour away and is so worth going! We spent a whole day doing that and it was beautiful and fun! We had a wonderful weekend and fantastic anniversary! We would definitely come again! Thank you Helen!n:)

Located on the sixth hole of the Championship Caliber Jack Nicklaus designed Harbor Shores Golf Course. Additionally, this picturesque city is known as the Riveria of the Midwest. Ninety miles from Chicago and thirty miles from South Bend, it is located on Lake Michigan with a thriving downtown located on a bluff reminiscent of Main Street of days past. First class restaurants abound in the area. This is your ideal vacation escape.
