 If you are looking to share a life changing experience with your loved ones and friends, the Fireside Retreat, may be just the family home you are looking for. This amazing 5 bedroom home sleeps 12 guests in such pure luxury and heavenly comfort that they will easily forget about all the daily stresses of urban living. This incredible place is at the end of a quiet cul de sac and is just a few minutes away from the highway - making it incredibly easy to find and a great place to launch daily adventures from. From Fireside Retreat, Lake Michigan’s pristine beaches with its warm sands and cool waters, and all the adorable “Mom and Pop” retail shops of South Haven, are just an 8 minute drive away. Twenty minutes north from this home, on Blue Star Highway, you will find the Art Communities of Douglas and Saugatuck - which is a day trip worth taking!
We would like to point out that most families come back year-after-year to Fireside Retreat because of the beautiful accommodations and Resort style luxury found within this home. The cathedral ceilings and large windows flood the living room with natural light creating a wonderful ambiance throughout the day. The natural light also enhances the beautiful stone work of the chimney that is central to the layout of this home and its open floor plan. The chimney is a gorgeous example of the lost art of stone masonry - the colors and shapes of the stone are in perfect harmony amongst themselves and their environment.  

The Living area is a perfect place to sit and relax and discuss, tomorrow's adventures. The furniture is comfortable and arranged in a manner that promotes dialogue, participation and active engagements with each other as you debate such journeys. This conversation can blend and be shared easily with those that are sitting at the dining room table to make for even more inclusivity. 

Fireside Retreat’s kitchen is a Chef's dream and pushes the ambiance of resort vacationing. The space is perfect for cooking, baking and creating as many magical delicacies and treats as one can imagine. There is even space for four to sit, watch, observe or partake in the festivities. The kitchen is made to handle the most elaborate of meals - or the simplest snack. Double Wall ovens, two kitchen sinks, tons of counter space and a center island work space makes it possible. There is even a large pantry to hold all of your groceries and all the goodies that you purchased at the Dutch Farm Market and all the random Farmer Stands along Blue Star Highway.

Just off the kitchen is a small sunroom with comfortable chairs to relax in, a small table for morning coffee and access to the back deck. The backyard, deck and patio share plenty of space to entertain, relax and enjoy life for a few moments or two. There is even enough space to BBQ on the large natural gas grill, as you enjoy the laughter of family and friends before serving them the best burgers they ever had; made with fresh ground beef from Bob’s Processing, and exotic spices from the Spice & Tea Merchants shop from your day trip to Saugatuck and fresh vegetables from the Farmers Market in South Haven. After dinner, how about making the perfect s'more, or hobo pie, at the firepit? 

The bedrooms are located on the upper floor of Fireside Retreat. The Master bedroom is a gorgeous space. The cool blues and grays are almost immediately calming as you enter the room and the enormous amount of living space will surely cater to relaxing your heart, body and soul. The queen bed will usher in dreams of fancy with its comfort and soft sheets.  The en suite bathroom is a perfect place to pamper yourself and your body. A walk-in shower with dual shower heads, and a deep tub are just what the body needs for pure indulgence. There are His and Hers sinks to make getting ready in the morning even easier too.  

Most of the bedrooms are found on the upper floor of the home and they are just as magnificent and luxurious as the Master. The Yellow Guest Room has a queen size bed that will embrace and soothe the body. The Lilac Guest Room has two twin beds and two big windows that pull in the natural light. The Blue Guest Room has another set of twin beds. The Blue Room is accented by the stone of the chimney running from floor to ceiling. There is a shared bathroom for all these rooms with a shower and tub combination. The last Guest Room is found on the lower level and hosts a very comfortable queen size bed and a full bath and the living space in the lower level of the home is just as full of energy and space as the upper level. The lower level living space is perfect for binging movies, hanging out, or playing a board game or two at the table that is there.

Fireside Retreat is just that, a retreat - a quiet, secluded place where you can go to “draw back” and focus on your mental well being as you escape from the daily chores, hassles and headaches of daily life in Urban America. It is also a place where memories of a lifetime will be created that you, your family and friends will cherish for years to come.  We welcome you to come and experience the resort style of living in this incredible family home - that we are sure you will soon call your “Home away from Home,” when you return the next year, and year after that and the year after that.

Only contact was on the phone during the initial booking and staff was great to work with. I liked the online payment process and receiving email and text arrival instructions as well as welcome notes. Appreciated the text contact during the storms although we only experienced a few, very short outages. I think we were very lucky considering what we heard about in the area. .
We are considering another rental next summer. Will you be in contact when your booking window opens for 2022? Do past renters get early days to either rent the same unit or switch to another? Working with you was an easy experience and appreciated that your online options appeared to match availability correctly especially since we were probably a bit late for finding a unit to fit our larger size group of 8 people. Hopefully, we can settle on dates earlier in the year in the future. Thank you to your staff including cleaning staff.
