The lovely home was perfect for entertaining family in the area. A close walk to the market and the beach. Very clean. Loved our stay!

Lisandra, we are so happy that Harbor Haven pleased you.  It's in a great neighborhood, and having Lake Michigan so close is a real bonus.  Great shopping 20 minutes away, plus day trips to Chicago or Grand Rapids offer loads of things to do.  We hope you come back again.

Cute house close to beach
The house was very nice, walking distance to the beach. St. Joseph is about 20mins away with lots of shops and cafes. Silver beach is there also and a lighthouse. We enjoyed our stay and will be back!

Diana, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Harbor Haven.  It's such a comfortable property with a great patio and a wonderful screened in porch, so there is no worry about bugs.  Being just blocks from Lake MIchigan, plus having a fireplace, adds to its charm.  We look forward to your return.

Amazingly cute & family friendly
This place was absolutely charming from the moment you step out of the car! Beautiful inside! Comfortable beds! Even had a few treasures for the kiddos to play with while we got settled in. Loved everything about this place! Beach was a very short drive away (not even 3 minutes, could have walked, but I was on vacation). We can't wait to go back!

Karl, we are so pleased that you enjoyed staying at Harbor Haven!  Having close access to wonderful Lake Michigan is such a treasure, plus the community of Union Pier is great. Comfortable beds are a must for a successful vacation!  We hope to see you back again.

Very simple VERY clean!
Property was fenced in, quiet and well stocked with necessities. The beach near by was smaller, but Michigan City has a public beach that was awesome. Would stay again!
