About Dana Chrisos

My wife and I built this home (barn) as a family place for us and our children. We picked out all the furnishing and made it a home away from home.

Dana Chrisos purchased this house in 2010

Why Dana Chrisos chose Michigan

We still go up and enjoy this home every year with our children and family. It has everything to offer for a large group or just a quiet get away. Great beach, fun to swim, tube, fish and just take the pontoon for a 40 minute drive around the lake. Great location to South Haven but with out all the crowds.

What makes this house unique

beautifully maintained home, Beach sand volley ball court. Pontoon boat!

Nothing less than amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a 4 day weekend at The Barn and we've had nothing but an awesome time there. The home itself was more spacious than I originally thought. The pictures do not do it justice. We had a 16 person bachelor party stay and there was more than enough room inside the house to accommodate all of us. There was tons of room and games inside to keep us occupied during the rain.The yard was huge, large enough to fit any yard games we wanted to play. Soo much space for parking, which was great for our big group. Although the weather wasn't on our side for the first half of the weekend, the ability to take the pontoon out for fishing and cruising around was a huge plus. The weekend was a great experience and I would definitely recommend The Barn for any large group that wants a relaxing lake getaway. Thanks again to Dana, her family, and her crew for having The Barn available for our fantastic weekend!

Fantastic

  • 4 of 5

The Barn was a fantastic place for our "Christmas in July" family gathering. The Barn is a beautiful place for the young and not as young family members. Caretaker Jim is OUTSTANDING in making sure that you will have a good stay. The only thing, and thus the reason for not giving The Barn 5 stars, is that it isn't ON the lake. But the lake and your beach front access is so close. Double Decker Pontoon boat a plus! plus the volleyball court on the beach. Nice size lake that is refreshing to swim in when you get away from the shore line in the pontoon boat. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. Thank you!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday weekend here. The barn was gorgeous and met all of our accommodations. We felt like we were on a resort with all the extra accommodations including the boat, volleyball area, canoes and much more. The property manager was always willing and prompt to help out with any question or need that we had. All other properties in the facinity had wonderful guests as well. We will definitely be coming back

Amazing getaway for extended or multiple families

  • 5 of 5

My extended family had a wonderful time here. The home is incredibly clean, the beds are 5 star hotel quality and the rec room has endless fun. Plenty of space for 3 families with 6 adults, 7 kids and Grandpa in the "captains" room. The pontoon boat is beautiful, they have a private sand volleyball court and there is plenty of space around the home for games and a fire pit. Their property manager assisted immediately with every inquiry. The owners were super helpful and great to deal with. We were looking forward to returning the minute was drove away.

The Barn

  • 5 of 5

This was just a wonderful experience. We rented the "barn" for a special family vacation. My mother is 85 and I have 4 sisters. We took the entire group of 16, including grandchildren, the youngest 11. The kitchens were stocked with everything we needed to make amazing meals. The beds were wonderful. What a wonderful place for the teenagers and adults. Stocked with games and movies.

The pontoon boat was lovely. The kids fished every night and were kept busy with blue gills and catfish. We took a trip to the black river and caught some nice northern pike. We spent some time in South Haven and enjoyed the sight seeing. The beach in South Haven was so much fun.

I would just like to personally thank the owners and the wonderful caretaker, for making our "family vacation" an experience we will never forget. Thank you.
