Some of the local eateries and business establishments nearby include Clementine's (an antique-filled eatery for American food); Su Casa Restaurante ( a rustic space for Mexican cuisine); Black River Tavern (a chill spot for pub fare and entertainment); Maria's Taste of Italy (a longtime family-run restaurant featuring Italian cuisine); Captain Nemo's (burgers, quesadillas and ice cream waffle cones offered in a charming diner with a nautical theme); Idler Riverboat-Magnolia Grill (a seasonal open bar and grill on a moored boat serving seafood and other traditional American eats); Sherman's Dairy Bar (South Haven's favorite ice cream bar with dozens of varieties to choose from); bike rentals, a Family Video, several fast food favorites and just down the street, The Depot, a liquor store with a deli that also has one of the finest wine selections in town. Also within walking distance is a Meijer, a movie theater, a Walgreen's and a small farmer's market.

perfect weekend getaway
home was clean and spacious and close to town. We ended up driving into town mostly for time, but could have walked. Outdoor space very accessible, including hot tub. would definitely recommend!
Great spot for a couple seconds getaway, the hot tub and view of the woods were great additions!
Great place and location!
Very nice place. Large for two people and well decorated. Close to town, just a couple of blocks away. Clean and well equipped. Would highly recommend this place.
Loved our stay
Loved our stay here in South Haven!! The house was older but very well kept and clean. The house had everything we needed to have a fantastic anniversary get away. It was so close to downtown we could walk or ride our bikes which we did daily. It was on a quiet street with essentially no noise at all. There is also a great bike path just down the street.
I wish I had more time here
My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in July. The house is kept in very good condition and you can see that the owner cares about the house. It is located on a quiet street, but it is close to Town and a couple of parks. Everything was clean and ready for us to arrive. There were many little extra's that just made this a great experience. For instance, there is a spot where there are brochures and guide books of things to do in the area, it includes local maps and menu's. We did not cook there but it appeared as there were plenty of pots & pans and what ever you would need to make a meal. The bed upstairs was very comfortable, just be careful of the slanted roof. There is a closet with shelves that can be used for your clothing but I would have preferred to have a dresser instead. The owner is very responsive to emails and text messages. We were running late the day of check in and he was able to make other arrangements for us so it would work out for both of us. He was also great about getting the security deposit returned to us quickly, I have had to email other owners weeks later about the deposit return but Marcus notified me the day I checked out and within a day I had the refund. My wife even said that it was easy to take care of this house because you can see how much Marcus cares for it. I wish all owners were as responsive as Marcus!
We very much enjoyed staying here ! The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The location was great as it was a short walk to downtown and very close to the Kal-Haven Trail state park where we rode our bikes. Marcus was very easy to work with and Carolyn was very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this property to anyone who loves South Haven !
