About Jason Pietrucha
We live in Illinois and Michigan. We have two family homes in South Haven and have been here for over 20 years. This home is something we waited for years until it unveiled itself to us on a home tour. When on vacation we live life to its fullest when it comes to dining, entertaining our families and friends and getting our vacation vibe on as quickly as possible. This home sets the pace for you and your guests instantly. This home is decorated and lavishly furnished for a vacation rental. We want our guests to experience the pride and joy in how we present our lake house to your family to wind down, relax and start creating some memories. The pictures of our feasts are the real deal and you have the best produce in the nation at markets and roadside stands for spring and summer! Just cooked with morels last week with garlic, cognac and cream!! We care that our guests have an incredible stay and that you know all that there is to offer to set up your week for adventure at this amazing retreat!
Why Jason Pietrucha chose South Haven
We searched and finally found our ideal lakefront home that can handle entertaining large dinner parties in multiple areas, has an amazing pool layout and a wrap around porch. This home just has the "it" factor on so many different levels that is conducive to entertaining, yet also privacy. Kids have their private pool? Check. Kids and adults have ultimate entertaining indoors if rain pops in? Check as well with our old school game room with a custom brunswick pool table, shuffleboard and ping pong! Adults can watch from afar or up close? Check. Beach access? Check, but we much prefer the pool! Kids have private area for movies at night and adults can have privacy? Check. It is important to us that our guests that they experience all that South Haven and the surrounding communities have to offer during your stay. For us we focus our stays on doing farm to table dinners, so local farmers markets are explored daily to create incredible feasts. We like to offer guests itineraries as well so they get the most of their time outside of the home, but it is hard to leave the scenery here. If you are looking for a vacation that is a place to unwind and get off the grid and enjoy all that life has to offer, then this is your place. All we ask is that the home be taken care of as if it was your own and be used to its maximum by your guests for all the enjoyment it offers. The property is furnished impeccably and we want our guests to enjoy the finer things in life inside and out.

Amazing Lake Michigan Home
We had a fantastic time during our stay. The house offers so many different features and it truly has everything you could possibly need for a great week. We grilled, we played games in the pool, we walked to the beach, we watched the most amazing sunsets, we played board games on the porch, we played billiards in the basement. The location is just minutes from South Haven. We rented a pontoon boat on one afternoon and we chartered an early morning fishing boat on another morning. A few minutes farther to the North is Saugatuck and we took a break from cooking with a fantastic dinner in town. There is an incredible butcher eight minutes to the east. Literally everything you need is either inside of the house or within a few minute drive. This was our fifth "last week of summer" on the shores of Lake Michigan and it was by far the best so far. We had a group ranging in age from 3 years old all the way up to 68. Everyone had a blast. Thank you Jason.
Lovely week with my family in this perfect rental!
Three generations and a dog :-) Precious time with three grandkids under three and our kids + their spouses. The home is absolutely lovely. Great gathering spaces, a very well equipped kitchen, VERY comfy beds and bedding. Towels galore (and great quality). Furnishings are just right... very stylish but feel comfy and welcoming. Pool was fabulous. And the fire pit? Our favorite part of the day, with a little wine and some S'mores! Owner was SUPER responsive during pre-visit weeks, and is a very thoughtful host. Pool toys? Check. Toilet paper, kleenex, garbage bags, foil, etc? Check. Firewood and starter logs? Check. His booklet of instructions/suggestions was thorough and a nice reference guide. The beautifully furnished screened porch got LOTS of use. So airy and comfortable. We hope to get back to Summersgate soon! It was wonderful.
Perfect place for a getaway
Based on my conversation with Jason prior to our arrival, I had no doubt that the property would live up to our expectations. The location is great and the house has everything you could want/need. All the necessities are there… Bring a little food and you are set for a wonderful week!
Very smooth rental experience
Thank you Dwight! We hope to see your family next summer!
Everything you need for a vacation spot!
Wow!!!! Just wow!! Describes our family’s vacation at this beautiful home in South Haven. It had EVERYTHING you needed to make your stay comfortable (including awesome spices and recipes). It was the perfect place for kids with the swimming pool and the basements game room. The sunsets from the screened in porch or the fire pit were breathtaking. I give this place an 11 on a scale of 1-10😬... we will most definitely stay there again!!!!❤️
Perfect Family Slice of Heaven!
our perfect experience started with a bad storm that swept the access to the private beach, Jason promptly notified us and presented options to our stay to ensure we still enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect for our family of 10! ranging from 27 yrs old to 5 months! Ample room and space so the family could spread out as needed and not be on top of one another. The pool was well prepared and we lived in it! heated as well! the sunsets are picture perfect each night and the fire pit was relaxing and with an awesome view. Jason has planned for EVERYTHING! Don't worry if you forget something, Jason has planned for everything in the house, from bug spray to sun block (but if use, leave some for the next guest if you desire) every cooking item you can imagine to dinner setting for 10+. Jason even, being a former chef gave us ideas to spice up leftovers! Beach towels shower/bath towels, etc set up like your own home with conveniences. very quiet and very secure gated community! within minutes of downtown South Haven and all its many offerings! We absolutely will book again, and we recommend you start spending your summers here, you will not regret how beautiful the who scene is. The pictures on rental site do NOT even do it justice and they are beautiful! thank you Jason!
