This was our fifth year in the Ice House, and it was great as always. Six spacious bedrooms, plenty of room to eat together with a big group, and the pool is always sparkling and a big hit with the kids. Jim Havlik is a great landlord who is always willing to help with little problems or local advice.

This is our third annual pilgrimage to the Ice House with four generations of our family: grandparents (4), parents (2), children (3), and grandchildren (4). The accommodations and little touches are outstanding. They make for a wonderful visit that we look forward to more and more each year. Here are a few of our favorite things:
Jim Havlik, the owner. Always helpful and accommodating. Easy to reach and to deal with.
The house. 6 comfortable bedrooms, absolutely clean and in good repair, much of it almost new. Good common areas - we mostly can congregate together and eat at the large table and island.
The pool and deck area. Favorites of kids and everyone else. Also, the shared play structure was used often. Many toys of all kinds are available.
The location. An easy walk (1/2 miles) from the beach and downtown South Haven. Quiet but close.
Wifi, a computer, and a printer. All work and are greatly appreciated when we want to find directions, new things to see, or to do a little business while on vacation.

For our family reunion this year we stayed at the Ice House. Our family ranges from age 5 to 89. The kids loved having a pool and hot tub on site. It was great to be able to walk to the beach and into town. The Ice House was clean and each of the bedrooms was comfortably furnished. I would highly recommend it.
