Overview

About the property

Five Bed, Three Bath, Pool w Partial Lake Views across Street from Lake Michigan

2017 bookings are closed, 2018 is filling in!

Start a summer tradition in the heart of Grand Beach! Located across the street from the lake on one of the highest points in the village, Sky Haven is the ideal gathering place for family and friends. Swim in the 20'x40' private pool, sit with your children in the smaller attached "kids" pool, or relax in the hot-tub just off the master bedroom. Watch some of the best sunsets in the WORLD from the back deck and soak up the lake breeze. Lake Views are partially blocked by trees and a couple beautiful homes across the street so walk down the block and have your toes in the sand within minutes. Playground, Tennis Courts, and Basketball is a five minute cart ride away, as is the major beach with a pier and creek. Don't forget your clubs as golf is just a two minute cart ride away from this ultimate summer escape!

Property is set up to deliver the BEST experience among family and friends with all the essentials provided by life-long Grand-Beacher: Free Golf Cart Use; Two Kayaks; Fifteen Beach Chairs; Extra Fridge in Garage; Brand New Fully Equipped Kitchen with Extra Oven Below Counter; Dining for Twelve+ Indoors or at Enormous Outdoor Table; Billiards Table in Basement; Three Separate Living Areas with Couches and HDTVs; Gas Grill; Charcoal Grill; Outdoor Couches; Chaise Lounges; Deck Chairs; Fire-Pit; and a Full Length Bar and Foosball in the Cabana.

The gigantic master bedroom is perfect for a family of five+ or just one couple as it holds six extra beds in addition to the king. Two more bedrooms on the main level provide a king and queen bed plus ample closet space. The lower level hosts two additional bedrooms with four bunked twins and a crib in one room, and a queen in the other.

The beach is a quick walk away. Load up the golf cart with your beach chairs, and cooler (no glass), then roll down the hill, make one right turn and stop before you come to the edge of the dune. Leave the cart and spend a day on this secluded, residents and guests only beach. Once the sun sets start up a bonfire and drift away with the sounds of the lake! There is a much larger beach with a creek and pier just a few minutes southwest.

Need to cool off and get out of the sun? Head down to the game room in the basement! Full length billiards table has new professionally installed slate/felt for hours of fun. Or, with ample couch space, disappear from the crowd and catch a ballgame on the HD Cable TV.

Call or e-mail with questions about the house and/or local restaurants and attractions. You will not be disappointed!

About Robert Kegan

I've spent every summer of my life in Grand Beach and look forward to many more. I love to cook, golf, dine out and sample craft beers which makes Southwest Michigan an ideal home-base. I work in Chicago and am especially interested in introducing this wonderful corner of the world to those who have not yet experienced it to its fullest. I aim to provide the best vacation experience for you and will be happy to help with any reasonable requests you may have.

Robert Kegan purchased this house in 2014

Why Robert Kegan chose Southwest

Grand Beach is a small community that you need to experience for yourself. Primarily developed in the teens and twenties, it retains all the charm that's been accumulated over the years. From the Frank Lloyd Wright homes and white Sears Cottages, to the Mid-Century Ranches and Multi-Million Dollar Mansions, this is a beautifully balanced, perfectly ideal beach community.

What makes this house unique

This property is a 1960's mid-century modern ranch with stylish yet comfortable furnishings and all the amenities one could ask for. The home is located on top of a dune with the lake to the West and a golf course to the East. Its proximity to New Buffalo and Michigan City gives you the choice everyday to enjoy the village of Grand Beach or head into town for any number of activities.

The house was great at accommodating the 10 adults & 8 children. Plenty of bed space.

  • 5 of 5

It was a great week for my family of 10 adults & 8 children. Plenty of beds for everyone. Kitchen was very efficient. Loved had 2 refrigerators. AC came in handy since it was a very warm week. Owner Robert Kegan was very available if I had questions & needed to reach him. Weather was great so that helped enhance the stay. Definitely would stay there again

Owner's Response: Thanks Pat and Denis! It was a pleasure meeting you! So glad to hear you enjoyed the stay. With the three distinct living areas in the house (living room, basement, cabana) and all the space outside, the house does do a good job accommodating a group of your size. I do hope to have you back soon. Have a great summer!

Property is perfect for family get away

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property as Home base for our daughters wedding and the setup and layout of the house was perfect for a large group with little children. The house is setup with everything you need to host a big group. The pool and deck were oversized and spacious. We hosted yoga class on the small lawn in front of the pool. It was so nice that there were a lot of pool accessories available for beach and pool which is so helpful. The host was extremely accommodating and went the extra mile for us. I would recommend highly.

FUN FUN FUN!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second stay at this home and we absolutely love it!! From the pool to the pool toys, the separate cabana complete with a full bar and the block to Lake Michigan; this property is seriously a recipe for fun. We have stayed at at least 8 different homes on Lake Michiganand this is by far our favorite! We will be back.

Great for family!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well maintained. The owner was very friendly and eager to make our stay memorable. We could tell that he was continually upgrading the property to make it a better for his guests. The pool was perfect for our crew of 20 (8 adults and 12 kids). The owner provided a golf cart and kayaks which added fun to our stay. Plenty of outside seating for meals. Overall, a very, very good place to stay. We highly recommend it!
