About the neighborhood
South Haven is a coastal city located on the eastern shore of beautiful Lake Michigan. The Black River Harbor is one of the most attractive recreational harbors on Lake Michigan. Summer includes swimming, fruit picking, golfing, hiking, and biking. Dubbed as the 'Blueberry Capital of the World', South Haven hosts the annual National Blueberry Festival each August.

Winter includes skiing, sledding, and skating. The house is a short walk down the sidewalk to the fabulous Kid's Corner, which boasts a large wooden playscape overlooking Lake Michigan, next to South Beach access.

The quaint downtown South Haven, with its unique shops, eateries, and pubs nestled along the banks of the picturesque Black River Harbor is right down the sidewalk.
