About Lynette Thornton

Born and raised in South Haven, graduated from LC Mohr High in 1974. I grew up on the property that our house in built on. My husband and I raised our two children in South Haven on Center Street and just after they both graduated we built our 'retirement' home that is now a rental. We lived in the house for about three years and then a job opportunity took us about seven miles south of South Haven and we manage a beautiful gated community on Lake Michigan and we live in the home provided for the manager. We still have a few years until we retire, so we decided rather than let the house sit empty that we would rent it throughout the year and let others enjoy the breathtaking area we call home! Only minutes from downtown South Haven and the beaches, this area has always been an ideal location, but when they brought city water and sewer our way, we jumped at the chance to build. My twin sister lives with our 95 year old mother on the same property and she loves to see people enjoying her personal paradise for the last 70 years! Our home gives you the best of both worlds in South Haven. You get to enjoy the beaches and all of the shopping you want and at the same time relax away from the hustle and bustle of downtown and enjoy the music of the birds in the morning and evening. Be quiet and you may see our families of deer or the families of wild turkeys. No you can't shoot them. If your not allergic to poison ivy you can walk through the ravine, otherwise stay where the yard is mowed!! We live within walking distance to my favorite, Sherman's Dairy!! As kids, my sister and I would ride our bikes there every day for a cone! Great childhood! If you enjoy biking, we live within a ten minute ride to the beautiful Kal Haven bike trail. It'll take you all the way to Kalamazoo if you want!! I personally guarantee that you will not be disappointed vacationing in our home.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

The house easily accommodated our 25 guests, and there was so much to do. We utilized the fire pit and all of the various games. We are excited to stay here again in the future.

Our entire family had a fabulous time at this property. There were enough activities in the house and outside to keep all 12 children and equal number of adults occupied. This is a well maintained home with clear instructions on how to make our stay perfect! Lynette provided us with many generous amenities that made our trip so much fun! We would totally stay here again. :-)

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 8 adults and 10 children 8 and under. This lovely home had everything we needed. Plenty of toys,beanbag chairs for the kids,beach toys and lots of beach towels. The kitchen had lots of small appliances and a huge table we could all eat at. The owners came quickly when a few things needed attention :) It is in a quiet area and we appreciated no traffic. We recommend this home to anyone needing lots of bedrooms and great space!

Wedding Party

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lynette's Landing for the weekend of our wedding. We rented the house for three days, used it as a location for the rehearsal dinner and as a place for the entire wedding party to stay for the weekend! The house and owners were absolutely wonderful! Jim and Lynette were prompt to answer emails and work with us to make the weekend truly special. The house was amazing and was well stocked with anything we could need! Our wedding party and guests at the rehearsal dinner were very impressed. Guests enjoyed the pool table, ping pong table, air hockey, fire pit, basketball hoops, and all other amenities. The house was absolutely perfect for our wedding weekend!

Weekend getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here this last weekend with a bunch of my best friends from high school and their families, and we loved it. We had eight adults, and eight kids between 1-12, and there was plenty of room and enough things to do for everyone. The house is huge and has plenty of space if people need some time away from each other, and between the fire pit, air hockey and ping pong tables, or the playground and basketball hoops and volleyball net, no one was ever bored. It's also a really great spot for groups to sit around a table and have actual conversation. Plus it's about ten minutes away from great beaches, downtown, and things like wineries. Toys were provided, along with supplies and more kitchen gadgets than I could dream of using. If there was any issue, it was that the hot water went out at one point, but as soon as Lynette got the message she sent someone over and fixed it. It's a great place, and we're already talking about next year's stay here.

South Haven is the quintessential Beach Town! Gorgeous sandy beaches, dozens of delicious restaurants for all tastes, unique shops...Here's a list of some of the most popular weekends

South Haven Fireworks ... July 3rd

National Blueberry Festival ... August 8-12

All Crafts Fair ... August 31 and Sept. 1

Our little town has a lot to offer everyone! My husband and I have been frequenting our favorite restaurant since it opened: Clementines!! You can't visit South Haven without trying one meal there! Because it is so famous, early on we realized this small trick: Since you can't make phone reservations, we used to send one of our children down on their bike and put our name in! They tell you about how long the wait will be and then we'd be sure to get there by that time! Well the children grew up so here's another trick we developed! Put your name in and walk to the end of the pier and back. That usually gets us in right about time! And if you still have time, shop!! My personal favorite shopping stores: Shooting Star, Nature's Country Cupboard and Renaissance! All on Phoenix Street.
