About the property

Seconds to North Beach! Spacious Family Home with Huge Gathering Spaces.



Just a 15 second stroll to the sands of Lake Michigan.




Yellow Bird is a family owned home with a magical setting on North Beach. A 15 second, level stroll brings you to the beach and Lake Michigan. Just around the corner is the Harbor Walk on the Black River. What a wonderful place to relax, read a good book or just watch the parade of boats going by.

Start each morning sipping coffee on the front patio. Overflowing with tropical flowers, it's a relaxing place to get away from it all. Then move inside to find fresh Lake breezes and fantastic light entering through the oversized windows. The spacious dining room and adjacent kitchen provide plenty of room for family dinners. The house is decorated to create both a mood of relaxed elegance and comfortable charm through a soothing palette of soft greens, blues and grays.

Feel rejuvenated after spending a day at the Lake. Retreat to the quiet quarters of Yellow Bird and experience the pleasure of an unplugged, slower life style. Create cherished memories of family vacations spent playing games, reading favorite books and telling the kids treasured family stories. In the evening sit on the harbor wall, listen to live music from across the River and watch the flickering harbor lights.

Yellow Bird is located just a short stroll from marinas, the park and downtown South Haven. The Maritime Museum and our old fashioned movie theatre are within walking distance too.

Leave your car at the beach. You won't need it!

Family Friendly Lake House

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful time my children, grandchildren and myself had in South Haven. The Lake House was comfortable and welcoming and met all our needs. Very family friendly.

Many activities to choose from.... paddle boarding, kayaking, walking to town, the farmers market, quiet time!!! One of our favorites was watching the sun set, with the little ones in their pjs running around the beach. When the sun fell below the horizon everyone clapped. So beautiful!!

It was a great place to gather as we come from different cities and don't often have the opportunity to be together as a family. You will absolutely enjoy your stay no matter the weather!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you and your wonderful family enjoyed The Lake House. We work very hard all year long making sure the house is the best it can be. With 4 bedrooms plus the sleeping porch there is plenty of room for everyone. The huge living room, kitchen and eating area encourages families and friends to gather for good cooking and lively conversation. The Lake House is just a 15 second stroll to the beach and right around the corner from the Harbor Walk... the PERFECT location! Walk everywhere. The beach, out the pier, Harbor Walk past marinas, over the drawbridge and into town. Happy to hear you and your family are returning to The Lake House next year. Many thanks. Debbie
