Perfect for our extended family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for two families vacationing together - and really we could have fit a third! Easy walk to the less crowded part of the beach, younger ones loved the quick walk over to Kids Corner. Enjoyed s'mores over the fire pit on the nights we didn't bike/walk to Captain Nemo's. Kitchen was very well furnished. Loved having a warm outdoor shower. Perfect week in South Haven!

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was perfect for our whole family. close to the lake and walking into town. The weather was perfect, the public beach within walking distance and handicap assessable, since my daughter broke her foot it was great. Everyone wants to come back.

Feels like our second home

  • 5 of 5

"We're home!" were the words of one of our grandchildren when we arrived at George's place last August for our third straight year of vacationing in South Haven. "Home" is the perfect description of the feel that you will get when you stay at this excellent location in the peaceful, lakeside town of South Haven, Michigan. This property is within walking distance of the quaint downtown area were you will find restaurants, shops and our favorite historic movie theater. The beach is just over a block away, and our grandchildren love the "Kids' Corner", a large playground with a baseball diamond, restrooms and picnic area that is less than a block away. As our family looks forward to our fourth consecutive year at our "second home", our only regret is that we didn't discover this destination years ago. Thank you George!

Family vacation beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We took our first family vacation with all of our children and grandchildren at this lovely home in South Haven, MI. We had never rented a house before so I was very nervous how this would work. We had family coming from Indiana, Tennessee and Texas so there was no room for error. Working with this owner was a dream. He was very responsive to all of my questions and calmed my “first time renter” fears. We arrived and found the house to be exactly as described. It was beautiful, spacious, clean and more than what we had expected. It accommodated all 12 of us comfortably. The kitchen was perfect and we ended up eating most meals at the house which made this vacation extremely affordable considering the number of people x 7 days during the month of July. We spent our days at the beach and our evenings on the deck. There was beach access 1 block away and a public beach with bathrooms and concessions just a few blocks further. Downtown bars and restaurants were an easy walk and we rarely used our vehicles the entire week. We enjoyed all the extras this house provided: outdoor shower, large gas grill, fire pit, washer/dryer, central vac and much more. The kids and grandkids are already talking about next year.

Many thanks to the owners from the entire Skidmore family!

Great big house with great location.

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at this house and we love it. (In fact, it will actually sleep more than 12) We love the close proximity to the Kid's park and the beach. The house has plenty of room, a nice deck and a fire pit in the back yard. And the outside shower (with hot water!) was great for hosing off the kid's.

Loved staying here

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an affordable and attractive way to host a big family gathering. It is clean and well-appointed, but not TOO nice - we felt comfortable without feeling that the home was too formal. There are lots of gathering areas, including the back deck and patio, plenty of places for people to sleep, and the updated bathrooms and kitchen are nice. Kids' Park is only 1/2 block away, and then South Beach just beyond that, so we found the location to be very convenient, too. Thanks, George, for providing us such a nice vacation spot.
