Welcome to the quaint city of South Haven, where you’ll find a unique combination of cooler Michigan weather, a slower pace, and on-the-lake lifestyle. Our South Haven beach rentals are ready to host your perfect getaway to this special place.
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.
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.
