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.

Lynette Thornton purchased this house in 2001

We have ALWAYS enjoyed our stay at Lynette's Landing and look forward to our fourth summer there with our extended family and close friends in South Haven. Jim and Lynette are wonderful hosts and always made sure we're comfortable. It's very family friendly and there's so much to do you almost hope for at least one rainy day for indoor activities in this sprawling, comfortable home. The kitchen allows for some serious cooking and entertaining. And the grills, deck, patio, playset, yard, driveway, and fire pit, along with pool table and table hockey inside, offer plenty of recreation, rain or shine. A great thing about this house is that you have a great open concept kitchen-dining-living area with cathedral ceilings for getting everybody together, but also plenty of nooks and crannies here and there if you want to hide! Love the country setting with the beach and town only a short drive away (5-10 minutes). Love the panoramic view of the wooded ravine from the comfortable sun room while reading a book. Love the late night trips to Sherman's Dairy right around the corner. Love every little amenity. Love, love, love South Haven at Lynette's Landing!

Great time!

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.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

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!
