Take pleasure in the peaceful wooded surroundings of this newer 3 bedroom modern cottage-style home, which is not only Dog Friendly but has access to a beautiful association beach! Nestled on a large grassy lot, there is plenty of room for outdoor activities and late night gatherings around your private Fire Pit or on the front or back deck.
You’ll enjoy light airy colors in the high ceilinged upper level that is naturally lit by 2 skylights, including the open kitchen, dining area with seating for 5 (additional seating for 3 at the kitchen counter) and the living room with a Gas Fireplace, Satellite TV & DVD and plenty of board games...! Experience the beauty of the clear night sky by viewing the stars through the telescope or take in the full sky out on the large upper level deck, perfect for relaxing around the outdoor table with 4 chairs!
Great for families, parents will appreciate the upstairs master bedroom with a Queen bed while the remaining bedrooms are on the lower level, allowing for privacy and space. Two bedrooms on the lower level are great for kids: a Twin and a Full bed in one room and a Twin over a Full bunk plus a Twin bed in the other room!
Only .3 miles to the association beach (just about a 5 minute walk), you’ll experience breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and a pristine sandy beach beckoning you to relax and soak in the sun.
Weathervane is just north of South Haven, so shops, dining and local activities are only minutes away. Plus, only a 10-15 minute drive to Saugatuck and you'll have a whole other town to explore!

We rented this house for an extended family gathering of 8 for a week. As others noted, this house is better than the pictures. I think Lakeshore Lodging should reshoot the pics on a sunny day to do the house justice!! We were pleased with the cleanliness of the house and our stay. The house was a short walk to a beautiful semi- private beach (though the stairs down to the beach are 109 steps which isn't ideal when lugging very young children and lots of gear). We had a great time on the beach, roasting marshmallows around the campfire and playing sports in the large yard. The only thing that could be improved was the kitchen seating -- the table was really only enough for 6 and there were only 7 chairs -- which made meal times more awkward than I would have liked. But really a small glitch in an otherwise perfect, relaxing vacation. A bonus is that downtown south haven is a short drive away. Lakeshore lodging was super responsive, honest and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to rent from them again.
a rental that served it's purpose, but not with excellence

We have stayed at the ocean for less money in the summer with better quality built houses in far better locations and far superior access to the water. Weathervane was a pretty house, but not well built and poor use of interior space. There were so many closets, another bedroom would have been better. Mattresses on beds were dismal. Comfortable beds are important to guests. All sound can be heard throughout the house especially when you are downstairs. It would be freezing downstairs when barely comfortable upstairs. Insulation in the house would probably be a good investment. And if this company is going to rent down in South Haven, they really should make arrangements to have check in there and not make people drive up to the office in Sagatauk. The guests should not be the ones to be inconvenienced.

Our dishes were dirty, there were dozens of fruit flies in the house, for the entire long weekend and there is a vacant lot adjacent to this property and when we arrived there were 10-15 people camping in the lot. there was a burned out RV, tents, pick-ups a porta-potty and 2 dogs roaming around unleashed. I called lakeshore lodging the next morning and maintenance came over for the fruit flies and put out 2 bowls of vinegar which did not help. They said they were aware of the camping next door, but that sometimes people did camp there did not know there would be campers this particular weekend.
We needed to wash all dishes, cups, bowls prior to use. I called to discuss this after our vacation and was told I would receive a return call to "see what we can do for you", no one ever called back. I would not rent this property and will not be working with Lakeshore Lodging again in the future as they lost my faith in them after how they handled our situation.
Beach is beautiful, yard nice, but we could not enjoy it due to noise and people next door. We have two young children and a small dog of our own and were not comfortable with their doberman who came freely into the yard of this property.
the house was clean aside from the fruit flies and filthy dishes. Read more
Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us Jeni. I apologize that you had a negative experience at Weathervane and am even more apologetic that we dropped the ball in following up with you.
We will definitely do a better job of notifying our guests of the people camping in the lot next door during summer holidays moving forward. As far as the cleanliness of the home, we would have gladly gone out to clean the dishes upon request and I apologize that our attempts to fix the fruit fly problem did not work.
Ultimately, we'd love for you to give us another chance at providing you with an outstanding vacationing experience and have placed a gift certificate in the mail in hopes that you'll do so. We look forward to speaking with you soon.

The pictures of the rental house in South Haven did not do the house justice. It was a very comfortable and clean home. It's location north of South Haven, puts you in between Saugatuck/Douglas and South Haven, although a bit closer to South Haven. Getting to both towns was convenient. Also, the property is located minutes from two golf courses, South Haven Golf Course ($30 a round) and Hawkshead ($70 a round. The South Haven course is tired and not well kept, but perfect to take the kids out. Hawkshead is spectacular, a great value and a terrific course. Our most favorite thing about the rental house, hands down, was the beach. A short walk from the home to the association steps put us on the most beautiful private beach, that was the icing on the cake. Lakeshore Lodging was available whenever we needed it and provided lots of information on dining and things to do. I would definitely use their services again and would stay at the same property without question.
Beautiful location and wonderfully appointed home!

From start to finish everything about our stay was great! The service from Lakeshore Lodging was excellent. The house was even nicer than the pictures online (a rare surprise). The location was perfect - just a short walk to the private beach which was clean and quiet and fun! We had a storm one night and Lakeshore Lodging called to check with us that we had power and that we were ok - very impressive! We will be back!!! Read more
Great review--thanks so much! Weathervane really is a beautiful home and I'm glad it was even nicer than the pictures. :) We love taking good care of our guests and can't wait to have you back! Have you made your reservation for 2013 yet??

The service was wonderful. Very kind and considerate. The home was fantastic! Clean, new, modern with all the amenities of home. The location was beautiful. The beach was surreal! We couldn't believe we were at one of the Great Lakes versus a tropical ocean! The only real concern we had were the steps leading to the beach. They were old and felt a bit unsafe. Overall, fantastic experience! We are already talking about when we'll be able to come back! Read more
Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us at Weathervane, Davis family! Lake Michigan is gorgeous and I'm glad you got to enjoy it! The beach stairs are kept up by the association there, but we'll be sure to pass your concerns about the stairs along. Thanks again for the feedback and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

I loved the house! Very nice, very beautiful. Check in was super easy even if you don't show up til later in the evening. Only thing I didn't like was the location of the main head quarters where we were to gather our keys. It's too far from the house. Only 25 minutes, but it was back tracking for me.
