Recent South Haven vacation rental reviews

The house was BEAUTIFUL!! Everything was SO clean. The walk to the tram took about 5min (down the lane and turn right). We had 4 little humans with us and typically the walk to the beach is the WORST part of the trip but they enjoyed it-because at the end we got to ride the roller coaster (tram) to get down to the water. Also it was perfect weather the week we were there so no complaints about strolling to the beach. When we got to the beach it was stunning- and most days we were the only ones there bc it’s a private beach. The kids had a ball building sand castles, building driftwood teepees, flying kites, finding rocks, digging holes and wadding in the perfectly clear beautiful water. In addition to beach days we LoVED visiting a junk store right up the road from our house- they had the BEST stuff. Back at the house we enjoyed making s’more in fire pit and cooking in the massive kitchen (we grilled and cooked every night). The only tiny complaint that we had was the mattress on the Queen bed was a little firm. But all other beds were wonderful. The kids LOVED having their own room (the parents did too)!! But maybe some black out shades in that room would be helpful- the kiddos never wanted the party to stop bc it stayed light so late. Lol It was a wonderful trip with a beautiful house!! We can not wait to come back soon!

Where is South Haven, MI?

This port city rests where the Black River meets the vast waters of Lake Michigan. It’s tucked in the southwestern corner of the state, in the heart of Michigan’s wine country, where you’ll find many charming rural towns boasting local color. Saugatuck and Douglas, with their bustling arts and food scenes, are just a 20-minute drive north.

Things to do in South Haven, MI

It may come as no surprise that the abundant water activities are a big draw to our South Haven vacation rentals. There’s something for every interest, from a day adventuring in your kayak rental to strolling along the beach with someone special.

Spend an afternoon exploring the shores of Lake Michigan at North Beach, a park open year-round where you can lounge on the sand and splash through the waves in the summertime. Cooler months mean a more tranquil beach experience and peaceful sunset views.

No matter the time of year, you’ll have views of the beloved South Haven Light. Built in 1903, this lighthouse is a fixture of the community around our South Haven cabins. When the weather is right, you can walk along the pier to admire it up close. During stormy weather, the waves crashing against it are a sight to behold from the shore, and in the winter the frozen lake water leads to incredible ice formations on the lighthouse. No matter the season, a trip to the South Haven Light is a must.

If you just can’t get enough of the lake while visiting your South Haven beach rental, the Michigan Maritime Museum is a must. Not only are there interesting exhibits on South Haven’s history as a port city, but you can hop aboard a number of boat rides, from replicas of 1800s sloop ships to modern day yachts, for a day cruising the seemingly endless waters of Lake Michigan.

Our South Haven vacation rentals offer everything you need to experience this charming city and the surrounding areas of Saugatuck, Douglas, Fennville, and beyond. Browse our homes today and start planning your next trip to beautiful Lake Michigan.
