Loved staying here
The location is absolutely perfect. So close to the town square and restaurants. Owners really care about providing all the things you would want for a house with children- tons of toys and games, boogie boards, a beach wagon, beach chairs etc. even had pack and plays. My only feedback would be regarding room arrangement. The biggest bedroom has twin beds in it. The first floor bedroom has a double instead of a queen, and many people prefer to not have their kids be in a different floor from them, so that was the only thing we struggled with. Also wish there was an actual full fence with doors around the lawn so we could comfortably have kids play outside. It’s so close to the action that lots of people are walking past on the streets in the evenings, and we didn’t feel comfortable doing that without an adult present. Beds were softer than I prefer, but everything was very clean with lots of extra linens provided. Kitchen is also super duper well stocked with actual good knives and cookware. I appreciated all the hooks everywhere!

Haven House
My friends and I really enjoyed a girls’ getaway at Haven House. The house was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities we needed. It’s also close to downtown and not far from beautiful Lake Michigan so we could walk everywhere. We hope to stay there again on another trip!


Thank you for sharing your review, Marcia! We are delighted to know you and your friends enjoyed your girls' weekend, and found the home to have everything needed (including cleanliness and comfort), and found the location ideal for getting to the lake and exploring the South Haven area! We hope to host you again!
