Why Traci Prewitt chose South Haven

The cabin is close to the Twin Cities and just far enough for those that just want to get away. Whether you enjoy fishing, swimming, jet skiing, wake boarding, paddle boarding, or kayaking, you can enjoy it all on this lake. The lake is large enough to tour around on a boat or pontoon for a couple of hours exploring both East and West Sylvia. There are many good fishing spots in the inlets around both lakes.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin has a private sandy beach. It is great for swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding. There is a dock for your boat. The cabin has a large front deck with plenty of seating, where you can entertain, grill and relax with friends and family. The lower patio/porch is screened and is wonderful for enjoying the evening and watching the sunset. The beach area also has a large fire pit, so you can sit by a fire and enjoy the stars.

Beautiful and Cozy Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 2 other couples in January and absolutely loved the place. It was cozy and had everything we needed. The owner was so helpful and responded quickly to some minor issues. The cabin was exceptionally clean with great amenities. We're already looking to go back during the warmer months so we enjoy the screened porch, upper deck, outdoor fire pit and calming lake. I highly recommend this beautifully decorated and cozy lake cabin! THANKS Traci for the opportunity to stay at your cabin.

Wow! Gorgeous & well appointed cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this cabin. So comfortable and accommodating.

We spent a short week here in December 2017, and the temps were extreme (21 below zero). We didn't get to spend time in the sauna because of the cold temps, but we wished we could have imbibed! There were lots of games in the lower bedroom, as well as cards, books, and lots of fun stuff to look at (the pictures & art on the walls were awesome - I even took pictures of them!).

I cooked a lot, and the pots, pans, dishes, glassware, and silverware were perfect. Only issue - there was a ceiling fan but not a stove fan, so I set off the alarm twice!

The bed mattresses were so comfy (firm), the bedding so soft (pillow cases & duvet covers are washed after every guest - nice!), every surface was clean, and the windows were even spotless!

The main level has 1 bedroom & 1 bathroom (gorgeous), a nice and well-appointed kitchen, a dining area which can seat 8 (we used 2 folding chairs), and a super comfortable living room (seats 6-8). Open and inviting.

The lower level has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, a huge living area, and 2 cots set up with nice bedding & pillows.

I can only imagine how AWESOME this cabin would be in the summer/fall/spring. The outdoor spaces were amazing (we could only look at them because of the cold temps). There were so many different seating areas on the front deck looking out a the lake, and on the lower-level porch.

Overall: Gorgeous, clean, well-appointed, casual, great lake view, comfortable, and a great place to make memories.

Awesome and Relaxing Place!

  • 5 of 5

The place was beautiful and we really enjoyed a relaxing thanksgiving week together. The house was perfect, the area is really beautiful, and we particular loved the beautiful sunsets over the lake. Couldn't have asked for a better stay.

A great break from the city!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the 'cabin' justice! 2nd week in November and the weather was picture perfect. Traci and Ed have provided the best get away possible. Accommodations were more than we expected and appreciated. We will definitely try for a summer break.

Beautiful, well maintained home!

  • 5 of 5

From he granite countertops in the kitchen to the abundant like-new deck furniture, we greatly enjoyed our family get away at this home. There are lots of little "nooks" to escape the crowd for a while along with great spaces for group dinners, bonfires, and movie watching at night.

This was a perfect place for a family getaway with our three adult sons and their significant others.
