About Amy S.

My husband and I are from Ann Arbor MI, Go Blue! We visited South Haven a few years ago and instantly fell in love. The downtown area is so charming and everyone is very friendly. We love the water, both for boating and relaxing on the beach. If you like to Bike, then the Kal-Haven trail is a must. I've not yet conquered the entire trail but I'm working on it. We are very excited about the newly paved Van Buren trail just steps from our door. The trail will take you all the way to the beautiful Van Buren State park. We will definitely enjoy that. We purchased this home to use for our family vacations and just love being here!

Amy S. purchased this house in 2015

Why Amy S. chose Southwest

Located in the southwest corner of Michigan, South Haven rests on the western edge of Van Buren County along beautiful Lake Michigan. Just two hours northeast of Chicago and less than three hours from Detroit you'll find this glorious little beach town.

What makes this house unique

Every season brings numerous opportunities for enjoying this area, Spring and Summer offers the Farmer's Market, the Tall Ship Friends Good Will sets sail and boating enthusiasts will begin to launch their boats. In the fall and winter experience the beautiful fall colors, harvest gathering and local wine festivals. Our world-famous lighthouse is a photographers dream even in winter when encased in ice.

The Kal-Haven Trail is a preferred destination for those who enjoy hiking, biking, cross county skiing and snowmobiling. There is an 11 mile parallel section where horses are allowed. The staging area for horses is at 67th street and Baseline.

The 33 mile former railroad bed has a limestone/slag surface. Linking the city of South Haven to the city of Kalamazoo the trail crosses over bridges, passes through small towns and by points of historical interest.

Perfect for small family

Close to park for little ones, lake, and town. Perfect for a small family. House and property met expectations and the owner was pleasant to deal with! Great spot for a fall retreat.

Great location and better than anticiapted

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised that the accommodations were even better than we expected. The home is lovely and all that we needed was there. Good beds, quality linens and a fully equipped kitchen made our stay very pleasant. The location is great for walking to the beach and the grandkids loved the park just 2 blocks away. The walk uptown is easy. We want to go back again next year.

Family loved it

  • 5 of 5

This is our third straight year staying in this house. We have three young children and they always have an excellent time here. Easy walk to the beach and Kids Corner playground. We brought the bikes this year and enjoyed many safe and quiet rides downtown. We like to cook on vacation and the kitchen is fantastic. Great eating area for the kids. The house is in a safe and quiet cul-de-sac which is a nice insulator for small children. Stayed here for two weeks and hope to do it again.

Fabulous home!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about the house. My adult kids and I stayed a week in June, they commented on how clean the house was. I appreciate that all things for beach were provided, chairs, umbrella even beach towels. Kitchen is totally equipped. We hope to be able to rent it again next year. The owner was always helpful and prompt to return emails. Great vacation!!!!

Beautiful, clean, modern, and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful! It is a trendy home equipped with everything the modern day family needs. It is very clean, even the outdoor area. We were pleasantly surprised with all the beach chairs, towels, toys and wagon available, as well as several bikes. The location is perfect! So close to a park, the beach, and downtown. We enjoyed being able to walk everywhere. We had a newborn and toddlers with us and the home was toddler proof....nothing we had to move to avoid breaking. :-) I highly recommend this property.

Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely comfortable & well stocked, and beautiful too! I really liked the proximity to the beach & the Kal Haven trail. The DVD player did not work, but luckily I had my laptop & hooked it up to the HDMI cable to watch Christmas movies with my family. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in South Haven.
