Wonderfulby Ralph on 01/07/2019
The place was very clean and the location was great for our family winter getaway. The only negative was waking up the first morning to a furnace which would not turn on which was fixed by noon.
December 2018 Stayby Sergiu on 01/07/2019
A spacious house with a separate bathroom in each room, renovated and with a refined artistic taste.

Beachwalk Properties, I just wanted to follow-up, we had a WONDERFUL stay at Lamb Haven! The home was stunning, décor is beautiful yet warm and inviting and the home had all the necessities of home and more! The fact that the owner decorated for Christmas was beyond awesome. We had a lovely tree for our gift exchange and the holiday décor throughout the house truly put is in the holiday spirit. You can tell she loves to decorate! Our group of friends get together once a year and we chose South Haven this year. We couldn’t have been happier. We love to cook and we found the kitchen perfect for cooking and gathering! Bedrooms were perfect with their attached bathrooms. We hope to return sometime when we can use the backyard amenities. None of us wanted to leave, we just felt so at home! And I would like to thank Ross for meeting us at the property to show us around and track down a few items that were missing. So nice to have attention to detail in a rental management company. Thank you again and Merry Christmas!
Great stay on the lakeby Elzbieta on 12/08/2018
We are a little late writing this review, but we were just reminiscing about this trip over thanksgiving and remembering how much we enjoyed our family stay. The location is great, and the house was roomy enough to fit everybody. We had three generations, from school aged children to grandparents, and everyone had something for them, whether it was going to the beach or playing in the yard or cooking and grilling. We especially enjoyed the gazebo and grilling while looking over Lake Michigan, it's a great view. Special thanks to the management company for being super responsive. When we arrived, the TV didn't work. They sent someone over immediately to check it out, and ended up replacing the TV with a new one within a couple of hours. This was a great stay, and I wish we had more big family events to rent a large house with a big yard for the pets. Definitely recommended.
Beautiful home. It was wonderful for a family get together over Thanksgiving.by Laura on 12/07/2018
The home was clean and had everything we needed. The hot tub was a lot of fun on a cold November day. The large dining table was great for our Thanksgiving dinner. We would absolutely return for a family gathering.
Great Location and Houseby Jeremy on 11/19/2018
House is great for a family and close to downtown making everything a short walk. Will be back for sure!
The Perfect Get Away - You Won't Want to Leaveby Julie on 11/10/2018
I wish we could’ve stayed indefinitely. This property is absolutely stunning. It’s spacious and luxurious, yet cozy and comfortable. The open floor concept of the kitchen, dining and living room offer a wonderful common area for the whole family to share in meals and conversation. The separation of the game room, second floor den and third floor play area offers something for everyone. We enjoyed the feeling of family and togetherness, but also appreciated the privacy and space offered for quiet time. Also convenient, was that each bedroom had its own bathroom. This home had everything you could think of needing, plus anything you may want. You can travel light with with peace of mind Lamb Haven will provide a truly wonderful get away. The beach access across the street makes for a lovely walk. Because there is no street parking and there are several stairs to access the shoreline, it is very private and has much less traffic than other nearby beaches. The location is perfect with groceries, charming shops, breweries, and a variety of restaurants nearby. South Haven has much to offer and is a charming piece of Heaven. We were fortunate to have gorgeous weather during our stay. As such, our favorite time was spent outside. Whether enjoying the sun and a swim in the pool, sitting in the hot tub star gazing or relaxing fireside while listening to the summer song of distant frogs, Lamb Haven was sheer paradise. Leaving the house was bittersweet and given the opportunity we will return to make more beautiful memories.
Amazing house in an amazing spot!by Jacob on 10/30/2018
Very clean, inviting , and there was plenty of space for a lot of people. Would highly recommend it!
Absolutely Amazing!!!by Oluwaseyi on 10/23/2018
Just a perfect spot for a big family and group of friends. We had an awesome time.
Absolutely beautiful!by Sandy on 10/23/2018
This home is beautiful and is perfect for a family trip to South Haven.
Lovely home with everything you need!by Rachel on 10/23/2018
Oak haven is not to be missed! We easily fit 5 adults and 3 children... this place had room for more though! The kids bunk room in the basement was perfect for our young children. The screened in porch provided a lovely place to gather for meals. Oak street beach is a quick walk away and we walked to Captain Lou's for lunch. Downtown South Haven is walkable as well but we avoided the holiday crowds and cooked at home. Oak Haven provided everything we needed and more! We'd love to go back for another visit.
Wonderful homeby Susan on 10/23/2018
Wonderful home - best jack and Jill bath I have ever seen!
Very nice home located close to town and beach!by Kimberly on 10/23/2018
Great home and location!
Great place for a sister tripby Marta on 10/23/2018
We stayed for a long weekend in mid-September. House was so nice, very tastefully decorated. The renovation utilized every inch of space! My sisters and I (and one daughter) even built a fire in the fire pit and enjoyed the chilly evening. Everything was perfect. Would definitely stay again. A perk that we have gotten used to when staying in a resort areas is bicycles and beach chairs. Both of those are missing. My sisters and I truly enjoyed our stay in South Haven during the "off" season.
Great location and charming girl's weekend!by Nicole on 10/19/2018
The property had many perks! The lit patio with fire pit was a hit as well as the hot tub and heated pool. The salt water pool was very warm into mid-late September. The kitchen had every utensil we needed. We had 5 women cooking at one time and didn’t feel cramped. The yard games and BBQ were an added bonus as well. We had 14 girls staying throughout the weekend and this house accommodated everyone. Having 4 bathrooms was a huge help! My only disappointment was not having a common space big enough for us all to congregate. The house has two living rooms and two dining rooms right next to each other where we played various games but not enough room for us all to be together. Other than that, amazing! Would love to book this earlier in the season for a family weekend or another girls trip so we could enjoy the pool on warmer days. SO close to the beaches and boutiques. Loved it

Fun with Friendsby Barbara on 10/13/2018
We are a group of four retired couples who stayed at the Beach Glass Cottage for a long weekend. Even though the weather was rainy with only one sunny day, we had a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful house and stunning views of Lake Michigan. The house has everything you could possibly want. The sheets are soft, the comforters are warm, and the towels are huge. We loved all three fireplaces. Sitting by the one on the third floor deck while grilling out was a joy. Sitting in the hot tub by the fireplace on the second floor deck was relaxing. And we spent much time in the living/gathering room by the first floor fireplace. We had a little problem with the hot tub, and the owner came over and took care of it right away. The walk to the South Haven Lighthouse is beautiful. And the town of South Haven is very quaint. Our whole experience at the Beach Glass Cottage was top rate. We hope to return sometime.
Beautiful house.. great views.. awesome tripby Donna on 10/10/2018
Arrayby Amber on 10/09/2018
We stayed at Beachwalk Properties, Blue Haven home in South Haven and could not have been any happier!!! The house in person is even better than the amazing pictures I saw prior to booking. Everything was in tip top shape and Beachwalk checked in on us to be sure we had everything we needed. It was a short drive to South Haven and we had a lake view to top it off! I would highly recommend and I'll definitely be back!
Great House Great Locationby Sara on 10/09/2018
This house offers everything you could need for a getaway. From the outside it looks like nothing special, but has so much to offer inside. Everything is exactly as described and very new. Home came well stocked with supplies and amenities. Kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishes and utensils. Theater room was awesome and incredibly comfortable. Pool and outdoor area were well maintained. Close to downtown, and in a very quiet neighborhood. Rooms were clean, lots of towels provided. Staff was very helpful, and all the information we needed was provided. Everyone in our group agreed we would stay at this house, or with Beachwalk properties again!
Beautiful House, Beautiful surroundings, wonderful time!by Bethany on 10/04/2018
We’re a family of 7 adults, 1 toddler and 1 infant. We had plenty of room for private space as well as family space! The house was phenomenal! Beautifully decorated, fully stocked with all the necessities. The cleaning staff should be commended!! The house was spotless! The view of Lake Michigan was both beautiful and relaxing. Both kids and adults loved the corner park and the walks along the beach! Beachwalk Properties was also very good! They were quick to respond, very pleasant to work with and accommodating! We would definitely stay here again! Thank you for sharing this slice of paradise!
Extremely Impressed!!!by Britta on 09/28/2018
My girlfriends and I LOVED this home. We barely left all weekend! Between the pool, hot tub, fire pit, and balcony, the 10 of us all were able to be together the whole time and share so many good memories. We enjoyed gathering around the dining table for meals and having enough room for everyone to sit. Anything we looked to do at the house, the house was more that equipped for all of us to do it together, that was an important quality we were looking for when finding a house to rent for the weekend. We've even discussed planning another trip for next year. South Haven is beautiful but this house is all you need to have an amazing vacation.
Arrayby Phil on 09/26/2018
We love staying in “our” Maple street retreat 2 bedroom. This home could not serve us any better, well maybe a nice recliner, but it is perfect for us. Special thanks to the staff, as they are always helpful and friendly. We will return as often as we are able to. Thanks to all!
Wonderful home and townby Allison on 09/14/2018
Perfect location and wonderful home. Had everything we needed to cook and plenty of room for everyone. The home was clean and not one issue with anything. Across the street from the beach and an easy walk into town. Delicious bakery across the steeet and hey serve Starbucks coffee. I strongly adivse making reservations if u are planning on eating out. Beaches were a bit more crowded than I am used to, however they are large, so plenty of room. Also, paddle boards and kayaks are rentable by the hour and there is a playground for the kids and volleyball nets.
Beautiful Homeby Shirli on 09/10/2018
So close to the beach and play area. Manager was very accommodating! Great vacay! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Would definitely stay there again!

Perfect for our family event. Especially enjoyed the outdoor area.
Relaxing Fun Weekendby Kinnaree on 09/05/2018
Our stay at Stan's beach house was very relaxing. The location of the house is such that you can enjoy a little quiet time with your family and also enjoy the beach by walking merely 2 blocks. The house was clean and tidy when we checked in. It had ample space for 12 people. The kitchen is also well stocked. The house had many amenities which included small items like beach toys, chairs, books, cards etc. We went to Overheiser Orchard, Sherman's ice cream took the Blue stairs to the beach, rented a bike from Rock n Road, enjoyed biking on Kal Haven trail. Last but not the least we went to 12 Corners winery. Our stay at Stans beach house was amazing. The manager was very helpful and responded quickly. I would highly recommend this house. A big thank you to the owner and the manager.
Beautiful home, perfect locationby Jody on 09/04/2018
Loved everything about this house! Weekend get away for 4 adults and 4 kids. Pool was awesome during days and nights. Walked to beach, playground, and shops. House is beautiful! Loved the shuffleboard table! Bedrooms all good size and beds were SO comfortable! We actually want to know what kind of mattresses they were because we loved them so much! Perfect rental, we will definitely be back!
Amazing!by Monika on 09/04/2018
Our family had the best time staying at this home. House was clean and spacious, pool was fantastic, close to the beach - highly recommend!
Five Stars!by Kevin on 08/29/2018
We especially enjoyed the views of the lake from the wall of windows and from the generous deck seating. We pit the fire pit one cool night and cooked two dinners on the grill. We also enjoyed the hot tub. Passersby appeared jealous of our accomodations.

Awesome beautiful home the best
Very nicely appointed home in a great locationby Lori And Paul on 08/18/2018
Very nice home, great location. Parking is tight but there is street parking available on North Shore. Well designed backyard area considering the close proximity of neighboring homes. We enjoyed a great week in South Haven!
The home was lovely.by Cheryl on 08/15/2018
As shown in the photos, there are lots of stairs! There also is construction going on directly across the street and in the subdivision, although it did not bother us. The home is very clean, and beautifully decorated, with comfortable beds and pillows. We were a group of 9 and it was wonderful to have so many bathrooms! There are spectacular lake views from the top floor. It is a short walk to the beach area for the subdivision and a short drive into downtown South Haven. Easy check in with keypad lock.
Annual Sisters Get-Away weekby Patricia on 08/13/2018
Absolutely loved our time in South Haven this summer! Serendipity was the perfect home that suited all of our needs. The pool and hot tub is what sold us on this home when searching for the perfect rental. We had so much fun cooking, swimming and lounging around. Location was great!
Great Home!by Brian on 08/09/2018
Our group of 12 (8 adults & 4 kids) had a wonderful time! The layout of the home is perfect for times that we wanted to spend together and times that we needed space 😉 The location is perfect if we wanted to walk into town (about a 10 minute walk), or if we wanted to go across the street to the beach. The property management company was extremely responsive. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Much better than we even expectedby Jen on 08/05/2018
The house had all we needed and the views were incredible. It was cozy and relaxing. The kids brought their volleyball net and we were able to have a fire and watch them play while enjoying the lake views. We will definitely be back
Wonderful Houseby Margaret on 08/04/2018
The house was a great place for our multiple family groups Plenty of gathering spaces. We do wish the front porch was several feet deeper so we could have fit better. Oh well The kitchen was big with various appliances! A welcome surprise Very comfortable beds and sleeping areas
Excellent!by Christin on 08/04/2018
We loved staying here and will absolutely consider staying in the future. It was comfortable and effortless.
Wonderful Timeby Anne on 08/03/2018
Had a wonderful time with our family in this inviting home with so much space! Walkable to several beaches, and so close to the town area, but in such a private and beautiful setting!
Stan's Beach House Was Perfect for Our Familyby Barbara on 08/01/2018
The house was very clean and well stocked with towels and paper goods. We only had to purchase pot holders, a potato peeler and bath soap. There was plenty of room for 3 families and the yard was great for the children to play. We were just a block and a half to sunset watching and the children's park. It was a comfortable place to stay and we would recommend your beach house. My husband's one complaint was the T.V. channels. He could not receive MSNBC among others and many were blocked.
Beautifulby Kay on 07/29/2018
We had an amazing week. Beautiful weather, beautiful house and our whole family together from 80 to 3 mos. Couldn't ask for more.
Top 1%by Gerald on 07/29/2018
Great house ! Our children and grandchildren were extremely pleased with the house and all the amenities. An active group the house was an excellent fit. We have been doing this family trip for 12 years to multiple locales in the US and this ranks in the top 1 per cent. Also, Beachwalk Properties was extremely responsive resolving any issues that we may have had.
Wonderful Timeby Daniel & Anne on 07/29/2018
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home. North Beach was not our first preference but now there is no turning back. We loved it. Bike riding was safe with little traffic and the beach was lovely. The heated pool was a BIG attraction for us. The late afternoon swims before supper sufficiently tired out the children making bed time easy. Thanks for everything.
Five Star!by Christopher on 07/29/2018
We just spent a wonderful week at the Ross house. This house was perfect for our family. The location is absolutely perfect being within easy walking distance to downtown and the beach. We had family members stay throughout the week and were very comfortable. Three of the bedrooms are small and without a closet or a dresser but other than that we had no complaints about the house. The pool was a great addition and was used daily on our stay. The garage with games was tons of fun for the family as well.
Five Star!by Gigi on 07/29/2018
Fabulous location across from public beach and short walk to town. Well maintained. Nice screened in porch.
Very clean, well maintained propertyby Camilo on 07/28/2018
Our family loved this home! The kids couldn't get enough of the swimming pool. The bunk bed room was hit for the kids and the dad!! The only issue and which was minor was the wifi signal wasn't as strong as we're accustomed to. Great property!! Thanks again!
Great house!by Jason on 07/28/2018
Hosted a group of friends at this house and it was fantastic. Despite dreary weather the house had everything we needed for a perfect, chill weekend. I’ll be back, hopefully with more sun next time
Wonderful Home!by Lisa on 07/28/2018

Fabulous Propertyby Theresa on 07/25/2018
Lamb Haven is a fabulous property. Our family enjoyed every amenity and every minute during our stay. Book it now while you can...it will be very popular.
Great house for a girl's weekendby Elizabeth on 07/11/2018
This house is incredible, I would definitely stay here again. It's huge, well stocked with pool floats, games in the garage and tons of kitchen utensils. We had a group of 12 girls and had the best time, walked into town and to the beach with ease. Great communication with Beachwalk Properties beforehand and during our stay. One thing that was a bummer was the coffee machine seemed to be broken, so we bought coffee we couldn't use and had to go to a local coffee place in the morning.
Very clean and great locationby Doug on 07/11/2018
Our families of ten truly enjoyed our stay at Stans beach house. Recommend silicone spatulas for cooking but everything else was great.
Fantastic Property and Great Location!by Troy on 07/06/2018
Exceptional house with all amenities you could want. Outdoor living area is spectacular. All of the little details taken care of. Oh and it is right across the street from beach access. What a wonderful vacation!
Fulfilled our expectations. Would def recommend and are already planning our next stay.by David on 07/06/2018
The house and accommodations were perfect for our extended family. The kitchen was stocked with almost everything you could need for meal prep and service. (We did, however, miss not having the pod coffee maker, which was noted as being available.) We would not hesitate to stay here again.
Great Location!by Leigh on 07/03/2018
Location 1 block from beach and 1/2 block from playground was great! House is beautiful. Being new, it was missing a few comforts of home like a cutting board and child’s step stool, but luckily there were superstores close by. Important note: Shades on the windows do not keep out morning light, so hopefully you are a morning person! We bought blackout panels to temporarily hang for our son to prevent a 5:30 am wake-up time! Property management company was very responsive and available.
Gorgeous house with a great view and location to the beachby Sara on 07/03/2018
This house was perfect for a crowd and was great for walking to the beach or downtown South Haven. The house has everything you need- we loved it!
Mom's Weekend Awayby Jayme on 06/27/2018
This place was absolutely perfect for our weekend getaway. Seven old high school friends taking a weekend away from our combined 15 children to relax and catch up. The house was adorable, spacious and had everything that we needed for our stay. It was within walking distance to the beach, local restaurants and shops and all of the other awesome stuff that South Haven has to offer. We did not have a single complaint and can't wait to return!
Awesome Propertyby Stacey on 06/24/2018
What you see in the pictures is what you get. The property is well stocked with everything you need to have a great vacay. Love the privacy of the beach and your dog will too! Make sure to bring bug spray as the mosquitos are relentless (not sure if spraying the property would help). There's also a lot of poison oak growing up the trees and around the property so make sure to keep the kiddos away from it. Would for sure rent this property again!!! Thanks for your hospitality!!
Great house with a great view!by Claudia on 06/24/2018
We would definitely stay here again. Very clean, close to the beach and downtown.
Wonderful lake viewby Bob on 06/18/2018
Very nice place in a beautiful setting with a wonderful lake view - comfortable and clean with all the amenities we were looking for in a long golf weekend. Short walk to Clementines (0.8 mi) and downtown attractions. Comfortably slept 8 of us, with room for a few more. Would definitely rent this house again!
Beautifulby Amy on 06/16/2018
Great relaxing rental. Fantastic location, clean, roomy, would definitely come again.
Awesome for a family vacation!by Cheryl on 06/16/2018
We found the house very accommodating and comfortable. Lots of beds and living space. We had a family of 9 there for a week, and had plenty of room. Very close to the beach, a playground and downtown. The house is impeccably clean and contemporary. We Highly Recommend it!
Great Houseby Phillip on 06/16/2018
Great house in a fantastic location, very close to beach. Great backyard.
South Haven PERFECTION....by Bryan & Lori on 06/16/2018
I planned a family get together for my parents and my husband’s parents, so I needed a location that had plenty of space (9 people) with lots to do. This property fit the bill. We had a marvelous week and would definitely return if given the opportunity. This property is very well maintained and clean. The outside is just as beautiful as the inside with the swimming pool and pool deck being the main attraction for the family. This is an old Victorian house that has been updated and decorated in a way that would make anybody feel welcome; the house is a real treat in and of itself. Here are some things I worried about that may help any other traveler with the same questions: • Will there be enough towels? Yes, there are tons of towels all over the house. We’ve stayed in places that barely had enough for one round of showers, not here. We had more than enough. If you think you are running low, keep looking. There are towels in all kinds of nooks and crannies! • Will there be enough hot water for everybody to shower at the same time? We had plenty of hot water to go around. I even have a teenage daughter who spends way too long in the shower. • Does it have a full-size washer and dryer? Yes, you can wash large loads of laundry. • Is the kitchen well equipped? The kitchen has everything you need including a coffee pot, dishes, cup, and cooking equipment. • Are the bedrooms comfortable? Three bedrooms are VERY roomy and comfortable. The room with the bunkbeds is a bit tight, but kids would never care. There is a room downstairs that is usable as a bedroom but isn’t REALLY a bedroom. The futon makes it a great place for a teenager who needs his/her own space. • Will we feel crammed together? Definitely not! The house is very spacious and offers a variety of spaces for people to “hang”. • Do I need we need to bring pool toys? If you have very young children, yes. That said, there are lots of floaties and pool “stuff” in the garage. • What if it rains? There are plenty of games in the house to keep everybody busy. Check the garage for some fun activities too. • Can we walk to town? Yes, it’s a short walk to the all of the shops and restaurants. If you have a lot of people staying and the money to afford it, this is the place for you!
Amazing House with Endless Entertainmentby Julian on 06/16/2018
Everyone in our group loved the house. Beyond the fact that the house was in pristine condition and included thoughtful conveniences, its amenities made our trip a pleasure. The hot tub and pool worked well, we grilled and played bocci on the lawn, and the patio lights were beautiful. Also, management was very helpful and attentive in ensuring a great stay. Thanks, and we hope to be back again soon!
Great Location & Amenities!by Elizabeth on 06/16/2018
The house is located right on the beach, and is impeccably maintained. About a 15-20 minute walk from the town. Would recommend for anyone looking for a beach stay in South Haven!
Fantasticby Jessica on 04/24/2018
We had a wonderful stay for our girls' get away weekend! The house was so comfortable and everyone had plenty of space. Those at Beachwalk Properties were extremely accommodating as well, and were available to help when we needed it. The house was easy to access and the views were incredible! I would recommend this house for a week or weekend stay any time of year. It was better than we pictured! Thanks so much for a great stay!
Perfect Home to Enjoy with Friends and Familyby Randy on 04/22/2018

Perfect Vacation!by Tami on 04/22/2018
Perfect vacay...could not have asked for anything more. Absolutely gorgeous home with amazing views. We will definitely be back!!!
The Perfect Atmosphere, Generous Staff and Serviceby David on 04/11/2018
We took 7 married couples away for a retreat weekend together. The house was perfect for us, cute and well supplied. Check in and check out were super easy requiring almost no work for us. Within a few blocks of South Beach, the river, and down town South Haven. The staff was very available and very helpful- we needed something extra and even though we called at 11:30 at night, they came right over and got us what we needed. We'd definitely stay here again.
Inn Like a Lamb is a Charmby Kathy on 03/25/2018
We loved Inn like a lamb. We enjoyed the hot tub, the bonfire pit, and playing ping-pong. It was great having access to bikes where a couple of us rode into town. The beach is just a five minute walk away. The house is well decorated and very cozy. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. We are talking about making this an annual trip. Thank you so much
This is our Favorite Place to Vacation with Friends!by Rachel on 01/25/2018
We love everything about this place! It’s a very well-stocked/appointed vacation home. Beachwalk Properties is very helpful if you need anything. We will most definitely be back!

5 Stars - Spectacular Girl's Weekend!by Veleta on 09/21/2017
We had a group of eight girlfriends at the house. It's not often easy to get eight women to agree on something. However, we all loved this house! It certainly exceeded our expectations. Two of us tried to get relatives to buy the house so we could keep it in our group, but sadly the timing wasn't right. It was so tastefully decorated and very clean. But more importantly, the location was fabulous. It was steps from a big, beautiful beach that was cleaned and groomed every day. We spent most of our time at the house on the upstairs deck. The way it is situated on the corner provides unexpected privacy and a spectacular view. We enjoyed watching the boats come and go through the channel. We were on the beach both nights for amazing sunsets. We walked to town for dinner and drinks and drove less than 30 minutes to shop and dine in Douglas and Saugatuck. Our group did everything we planned on doing, but discovered lots of other things to do. We definitely want to come back again! The mobile app was so convenient and we really appreciated the prompt response to our email about the low battery in the keypad. It was replaced before we returned to the house. There really isn't anything we could suggest to improve upon this experience. It was fabulous!
Labor Day Stayby Beth Ann on 09/08/2017
The house was beautiful and very clean, perfect size for our group. The pool was fabulous at 84 degrees, my grandkids and kids thoroughly enjoyed it. All the little touches were great – all the towels, soap in all the bathrooms, laundry and dishwasher detergent, pans, platters etc.
Everything and then Some!by Ted on 08/23/2017
We loved this home, it was the perfect size for our family and right on the beach. The upstairs deck was a regular hangout spot for us. We loved the fire pit in the evening. We loved watching the boats going in and out of the channel. I'm not sure we could have asked for anything more. We would like to come back next year!
August 2017by David on 08/19/2017
This is a very nice house, across from the beach, next to a big playground and an easy walk into town. The house is very comfortable and well equipped.
Family Vacationby Deirdre on 08/04/2017
Had a wonderful week staying at the Lamb guest house! The house was roomy enough for our entire family including 4 grandchildren under the age of 5. They loved the pool! It was so nice that every room had their own bathroom. We will be back!
Great House!by Ron on 08/04/2017
Great house, great weather, great time!!!!!
Scenic, Serene, Natural Beautyby Margaret on 07/31/2017
The Deer Creek property is nestled at the end of a cul de sac in a small subdivision that is scenic, serene and surrounded by natural beauty and subtle tranquil sounds of nature. My family of 12 truly loved the Deer Creek property We enjoyed all the amenities of the house, especially the pool and screened porch. The built in beds were the perfect solution for giving us the room we needed. Some of the kids don't live in Michigan so giving them that extra time together created a true cousin to cousin experience and allowed the adults plenty of privacy in the lower bedrooms, while I enjoyed hearing them talk in laugh from the master suite I occupied. I loved having the entire crew in one house is was wonderful and the best family vacation ever! The only drawback was Deer Creek does not allow pets and we like our small dog to join in the family fun. We understand the rules, but he would have loved it there too.

Everything you need is in the house. Appreciate the extra towels, toilet Paper, paper towels, washer & Dryer. Gorgeous Hydrangea Flowers & Landscaping! Loved the screened in porch. Close enough to walk to the beach... about 3 blocks West and Close enough to town. They could use some WD-40 on the doors and some nails in the floors to fix and/or lessen the squeaks as to not wake up the late-risers! Also, appreciate the fan in the screened-in porch. ... A ceiling fan could be good. Also, the fresh basil was nice to use. Fresh Mint could be good for Iced Tea! They could us identical shades on the East side of the porch for the (East) morning sun. Unfortunately, the next block West of us, they were building a house and a new in-ground pool, So, the builders were out before or by 7:00AM. Which was/is kind of a bummer.
Deercreek Vacationby Helen on 07/21/2017
This house was the perfect size for our family, including grandma (first floor bdrm), and 2 other families. Plenty of space for big dinners or to just do your own thing. Loved screened in porch. Pool is large and heated (a definite plus for the adults). Only a 5-minute drive to the downtown/beach area. We actually preferred being a bit away from town and not having neighbors sooo close, especially for those late night swims (ages 8-79)! House looked just like the pictures. Very clean. Big garage and plenty of parking. Place is 5 stars. Would definitely stay here again!
July 2017by Mireille on 07/14/2017
Wonderful house....Wonderful location. Our teens were bummed about the non functioning TV in the basement but that meant more family time.
July 2017 Stayby Gordon on 07/10/2017
As we are nearing the end of our stay, our only regret is that we leave tomorrow morning. This was a family vacation with kids and grand kids, a total of 8 people. Everything was about perfect... the house, the weather and the beach. The beach is just steps away and the concession stand features 16 flavors of Sherman's ice creams.
June 2017 Stayby Dolores on 07/10/2017
What a perfect place to have our family together at the beach! We enjoyed the house, pool, beaches, and watching our grandkids enjoy everything! An unforgettable vacation for all of us!
5 Stars - Perfect for Girl's Weekend!by Megan on 06/27/2017
The house was perfect for our girls weekend! We didn't use the hot tub so I can't comment on that! Everything was very clean! Would definitely recommend.
5 Stars - Would Definitely Recommend it to Others!by Mary Christan on 06/27/2017
We had a wonderful time staying at Ark in the Park! We came here for a family weekend, six adults and four children. The home was even better than it looked in pictures, and there was kind of a private little driveway that led up to it. The yard was huge and beautiful. The home was very spacious and had just enough space for everyone to sleep. The deck outside was awesome and wrapped around half of the house. We had beautiful weather and drove about two minutes over to Oak Street Beach, which was a small public beach that we had to ourselves for quite a while. It is literally about a four minute drive to town where all the fun shops and restaurants are, mainly on Phoenix Street. This was just the weekend we were looking for, and we were very happy with the house. Would definitely recommend it to others!
5 Stars - Beautiful House for the Weekend!!by Grace on 06/27/2017
Myself and my friends stayed for the weekend in South Haven and thoroughly enjoyed it! The house and beach were even more beautiful than pictured and we couldn't have had a better time. The house was beautifully decorated and maintained with great views and the private beach was a very nice touch. Beachwalk Properties was wonderful to work with. They were prompt with calling me back with questions and concerns and were very accommodating. I would highly recommend staying at Blue Haven and hope to go back in the future!
June 2017 Stayby Kelly on 06/21/2017
This home is fabulous!! We had a great experience and would highly recommend it to anyone. Great location and the house was gorgeous.
June 2017 Stayby Jim on 06/18/2017
There is a saying that "you get what you pay for" and this property exceeded our expectations. Clean, spacious, and conveniently located sum it up best. My wife, 3 children with spouses and grandkids really enjoyed our stay. If you have a big group (we had 12) this is the place.
Our Family Stay at 111 South Haven Streetby Nancy on 05/12/2017
Let me tell you how much we enjoyed it. This vacation it was just my family. Myself, my two sons, my daughter in law and two grandchildren, 21//2 and 1 yr. We never thought we would be the first to rent. The location was perfect being just close enough to walk to the beach. The house is roomy with space for all. The kitchen was well used. We made trips to Saugatuck for a dune ride and a pontoon rental....we stopped in Fennville for some Cranes Pies. We ate downtown South Haven, Clementines, Taste, Vineyard and Golden Brawn Bakery. All were children friendly and adult approved. We made three dinners at the house with the utensils and pots, pans on hand. I have not heard so much laughter in a long time. The weather cooperated. Thank Beachwalk for steering me to this home. I want so badly to come back. I would like to make it a yearly trek. All of us want to thank you for one of the best vacations ever. The 2/12 yr old from Ohio is still talking about the Michigan house. We have loads of pictures. You guys were the best!!! Easy to rent and easy to just relax there. Again, thank you and we hope to be there again.
Beautiful Home!by Robert on 10/03/2016
We had a great time. Beautiful house and the housekeeping was great. The instructions and welcome was great! The only comment we have is that the kitchen has a really bad fruit fly issue. I am in the hotel, restaurant and bar business and this has been a very challenging year in our bars as well. I would explore treatment options and hopefully you can beat them. We had the windows open on Saturday, not sure if that contributed to the problem. Hope you can find the solution. We look forward to future visits. I hope that the home stays a vacation rental and is kept up so nicely.
Beautiful, Well Equippedby Julie on 09/26/2016
Everything was absolutely perfect. We had no concerns and no suggestions for improvement. Thank you for managing such a beautiful and well equipped property.
Perfect Home!by Sara on 09/23/2016
We had an amazing weekend with our family at the Lamb Guest House. Not only was there beautiful weather and a beautiful walk to the beach a few blocks down...your facility had everything thought of! Everything was done to a T inside the home and outside and much thought put into every nook and cranny. From an amazing coffee maker to silverware and fresh towels. Also appreciated the pool having the safety cover and the bells that went off when the door opened - to keep our little ones safe.
Everything and Moreby Ronit on 09/14/2016
The house had EVERYTHING anyone could want for a comfortable, fun and enjoyable stay. The pool was warm and clean. The kitchen had every imaginable utensil or serving platter you could think of. This house is fully stocked! Great for families. There was high chairs, baby toys, potty seats and a pack n play. Our kids enjoyed the covered wagon and bikes that were readily available. The houses location was prime! Perfect distance to beach and downtown area.
Well Equipped, Perfect Locationby Liz on 08/22/2016
This house and location was so perfect! It was close the beach and the park and walking distance from downtown and the concert area. A fantastic coffee shop is right across from the street and the kitchen is well equipped with utensils and many appliances you might need. All the little extra things in the house were much appreciated (sand toys/chairs, lots of bath towels, blankets, etc.). Thank you.
Wonderful Home and Stayby Paul on 08/18/2016
We had an amazing time at the Maple Street Retreat. We had several family members join us in South Haven for a week in late August. The property was clean and well maintained - exactly as described in the pictures. Midway through our stay one in our party asked for some routine maintenance to be done - we requested help through the App and Beachwalk responded promptly and courteously. Check-in and check-out were a breeze, and the information packet provided was extremely helpful on multiple occasions. The App was helpful before, during, and after our stay. The location is perfect - easy to walk to town, the beach, and Kids Korner. We made those walks *several* times. The property is also very close to the beginning of a dedicated bike trail that goes from the property all the way to Van Buren State Park (a beautiful bike ride). I highly recommend both this property and Beachwalk. Beachwalk made our vacation as notable and easy.
Family Getawayby Mary on 08/04/2016
We came to beat the heat and to show my kids the wonder of Lake Michigan. We were not disappointed. The property is lovely. We had a large family gathering on a Sunday. The large yard accommodated a volleyball net, frisbee and football tossing in the front yard. The gazebo, fire pit and hammock, overlooking the lake were fabulous. The house is small, especially the kitchen, which will not accommodate many cooks. The second bathroom is off the kitchen which also caused some flow problems. All the bedrooms are spacious, well appointed with comfortable mattresses, pillows and bedding. Both bathrooms are updated. South Haven is 20 minutes by car and we enjoyed the sailing cruise and fishing charters.
Fabuous Gazebo Dinners & Sunsets to Die For!by Jennifer on 07/09/2016
We had an amazing week! We are from Ohio now, but originally from Michigan. We just wanted a family vacation on "real" water. Loved the yard. Sat out there in our chairs and enjoyed the kids and dogs playing. Had a fabulous dinner in the gazebo! Sunsets to die for. Nap in the hammock. Beach full of rock collections and a bit of a sunburn. My kids said it was the best family vacation ever! Kids are 31, 28, and 22. One grandchild of 15 months. Had visits from our extended family from Detroit area for the 4th! They also thought the property was perfect for our family. That is saying a lot! Thank you for a wonderful experience! So relaxing!!
Family Getawayby Rhonda on 06/24/2016
We had the best time at the surf cottage. Made super memories. We loved the huge yard, the view, the beach was awesome. The cottage itself served us well, loved all the nice linens and towels. The only thing I would change is the amount of furniture in the living room and dining room. WE actually moved some chairs out to the porch so we would have room as a family. Otherwise we loved it.
Great Cottage, Beautiful Private Beach, Amazing Yardby Rhonda on 06/23/2016
We had the most amazing family time at this cottage. Cottage great, yard amazing, beach private and beautiful.
Perfect Getaway!by Theresa on 06/23/2016
the pictures do not do this beautiful property justice! it was absolutely perfect for a girls weekend!
Beautiful Home Close to the Beach!by Lynn on 06/16/2016
We had a great time, we were happy with how close we were to the beach and the home was just beautiful. We will keep it in mind for future visits.
Superior Sunsets is Superb!by Michael on 12/30/2015
Beautiful place with all the bells and whistles! We had a great time bringing in the 2016 New Year! Would definitely stay again. Thank you.
A Beautiful Homeby Kathleen on 09/10/2015
Our entire family truly enjoyed our weekend at Inn Like a Lamb, in South Haven, Michigan. The house is exactly as described. It is a warm and welcoming home that has everything that a family could possibly need for a wonderful vacation stay. The pool was delightful and the outside area was wonderfully relaxing. The house is clean and well-appointed. There's not a thing that has not been thought of in preparing this house for guests. It was sparkling clean and so very comfortable. The entire family--grandparents, children and grandchildren, agreed that it was our best rental EVER! We hope to return soon.
Great Location & Wonderful House for Large Groupsby Linh on 09/07/2015
We had a group of 13 and rented out both units of Maple House. The house is centrally located - easy walk to the beach, Kids Corner and Downtown. We had 8 adults and 6 kids. We had plenty of space for everyone. We spent most of our time on the upper floor. The hot tub and deck were wonderful - the kids loved it. The house itself was lovely - nice, comfy furniture, kitchen was well-stocked, enough chairs for eating, etc. We had an issue with the wi-fi and the owners were quick to respond and try and remedy. The only minor comments would be (1) the number of bathrooms. The whole house has three but in reality, only two could be used at all times because 1 is in the master bedroom and we had a sleeping toddler. (2) We didn't need to use it but the murphy bed is essentially in the entry way of the larger unit. A point of consideration for those that might need the bed. (3) No space to put our bikes and other gear. We had to bring them in/out of the house and place them in the downstairs entry way. It would be great if one of the three garages could be made available to store gear. (4) There were a few broken boogie boards for use. We brought out own stuff but it would be great if the house offered some beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. for renters to use. All in all - we had a fantastic week. Weather was perfect and we really enjoyed our first stay in South Haven. Would highly recommend the house.
Great Place to Stay!by Lauren on 08/24/2015
Everyone was so impressed with the cleanliness, and decorative detail of this property. The house was nicely stocked with necessities, which made it much easier to show up, and not have to bring everything. The house is very close to the beach, and within walking distance of anything in town. So thrilled that we picked this property, it was great!
3 Day Getawayby Judy on 07/14/2015
We loved your home! Convenient to everything in South Haven. I just wish we could have stayed longer.
2015 Family Vacationby Wayne on 07/11/2015
This was our 2nd vacation in South Haven. We had a great time. This house was perfect and in a great location. We look forward to our next visit.
Family Vacationby Carol on 07/11/2015
Our week long stay with our family of seventeen was wonderful! This was by far the best equipped home we have ever rented. It was also very clean and beautifully appointed. Location to the beach was very convenient and the pool area was the best. Plenty of patio tables and seating area and the fire pit made for fun evenings making s'mores! The management team was also very responsive and helpful. We would definitely come back!
Peaceful Retreatby Megan on 07/03/2015
This charming cottage is the perfect escape from busy Chicago life. The yard is huge, which is perfect for kids to run around and the view of the lake is outstanding. The walk down to the beach is so fun through all the beautiful, trees. The private beach is great. I felt as if I were somewhere more exotic than Michigan. I really liked eating dinner in the gazebo. You can enjoy nature and the sunset while still being enclosed. The interior is super cozy and I love the decor. Each bedroom has beautiful fabrics and the beds and linens were very comfy. The master bedroom is a dream, so tranquil, with a stunning view of the lake and back yard. There is a lovely seating area just to relax. The perfect spot to read a book. The kids bedroom is huge, a great place to sleep and play. The room can sleep four with room for sleeping bags. The Living Room fireplace is also a nice focal point, surrounded by 2 leather club chairs. The kitchen table expands and can be moved just into the next room to be placed along the banquette if you want to enjoy a meal by the fire. I will definitely go back!
North Beach House - South Havenby Jim on 06/18/2015
This house is even better than it looks in the pictures. We were in awe of the size of the house, decorations, and the view. Numerous patios allow you to enjoy both the house and the beach which is literally 30 yards away. Couldn't have picked a better place to enjoy our stay in South Haven at.
Loved It!by Ashleigh on 05/14/2015
Would stay again. Amazing house with hot tub close to town
Beautiful Well Appointed Homeby Patricia on 05/14/2015
We rented the home as a surprise birthday weekend with all her kids and grandkids. It was perfect! The home is large, comfortable and very well appointed. The decor is a classic beach/coastal in design - and just makes for such a relaxing and comfortable stay. The kitchen is so well appointed - with everything you would need. We hired a chef for one night and she was impressed with the fact that it had all she needed and more. The pool is heated and was such a great surprise for the grandchildren. It was so warm, that we had a hard time getting the kids out of the pool! We hope to make this a regular family gathering spot!
Girl's Weekend!by Carissa on 04/16/2015
Great place, plenty of room, 5 minute walk to beach. Awesome place for a girls' weekend!
Maple Street Retreatby Janine on 04/07/2015
Aside from a few minor glitches (had to wait a bit for the entry code to be properly set before we could get in, one propane tank needed to be shared among 2 grills and the fire pit table, and occasionally someone didn't have hot water for the shower), our extended family group truly enjoyed our stay. Location is fabulous. ...2 blocks from Lake Michigan, and while we were there we saw a magnificent April sunset over "iceberg" strewn waters. The space was perfect for our group; especially liked the hot tub, fire pit table, Bluetooth speaker tower, and gathering space. Also enjoyed classic South Haven locales such as Clementines Restaurant and Sherman's Ice Cream. House was very clean, lovely, and comfortable.
Beautiful Home!by Lacey on 02/18/2015
I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. We had a large group, 14 adults, and lots of small children. They were very accommodating of all our small children. The house was immaculate and clean. Fully furnished kitchen, making meals super easy. The decor was beautiful and felt very "homey". Everyone is our group was amazed at how beautiful the house was. We really didn't get to enjoy the outside because it was in the middle of winter, but the pool area in the summer would be a definite draw to this house. The managers made everything so easy for check in and check out, and assured us that if we needed anything they were a phone call away. This is a place I would highly recommend staying.
Great Getaway for a Large Group!by Arielle on 01/06/2015
My friends and I just returned from a stay at the Maple Street Retreat and could not have been more happy with our stay. This house is perfect for large groups, (we had 13), because the house has separate kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms. The bedrooms are large and the beds are actually comfortable (hard to find in a rental!). Everything was set up and ready for us - hot tub, sound system, linens. Terri was super attentive and responsive and the payment methods were really easy through the site. The app I downloaded told me everything and everything was clean when we got there. We made this trip a ski trip and while the lodge we went to (Timber Ridge) was a little farther than originally anticipated, it was an easy drive and we had a blast. We were also only 20 minutes from Saugatuck so we got to frequent the local brewery and antique shops. Great location, especially if you are coming from downtown Chicago - only a 2 hour drive. Thanks again for the great stay, Maple Street! This will definitely be on the short list if we are looking for a rental in South Haven again.
