A few weeks ago we made a quick trip to South Haven, Michigan from our Airbnb near Saugatuck. It has the beautiful Black River running through it from Lake Michigan. There’s a mix of new and older homes and buildings.
We spent out last evening during our vacation in this charming lakefront town and just enjoyed walking around and having dinner.
I thought it was interesting that the door was slightly ajar on this charming white cottage.
This double-decker porch takes full advantage of the South Haven views. You’ll find oodles of rental homes here – more so than Saugatuck or Holland.
Boats travel down the Black River from Lake Michigan and it makes for a very pretty summer display. What a charming place to live.
Especially if you’re lucky enough to live in a riverfront home. How wonderful it must be to enjoy morning coffee or an evening glass of wine on one of these porches watching the ships sail gently by.
Here’s another view of the Black River with restaurants, shops, and homes in the background.
You can walk out to this lighthouse where the Black River meets the Lake. I’m glad we made time to visit South Haven during our recent vacation.
We recently chose next summer’s vacation home, this time through VRBO. We’re trying a farm vacation in the heart of Wisconsin – not too farm from a couple of lakes and charming towns. Do you have any upcoming plans for a quick getaway?
