Nestled along the Lake Michigan shore with awesome views, Master Lodge boasts a large dining porch and loads of space for everyone! This rustic and historic home will be the place your family will want to come back to year after year. One of the perfectly situated cottages in Palisades Park, on the lake and close to everything they offer.  Just four miles south of downtown South Haven, you aren't far from all the dining and shopping if you like.

Palisades Park offers beautiful lake views and trails throughout the Park into the dunes. There is no beach directly in front of the Master Lodge. Ten tennis courts, six of which are clay. Basketball court, baseball field, children's clubhouse for day activities and a Soda Bar for burgers and ice cream cones! You may remember places like this from your childhood.  Like those vintage cottage homes of yesteryear, the Master Lodge does not have air conditioning but is positioned along the shoreline to take advantage of those wonderful lake breezes.

Perfect for retreats, large group getaways, girls weekends and reunions.

Please Note:  For the 2021 season, Lake Michigan's high water levels have covered the park's beaches. However, everyday you can enjoy the beautiful views from this house.

Team was very helpful and personable, as always , especially Dawn
We love staying in Masterlodge at Palisades Park! The house is right on Lake Michigan, the boardwalk, and close to the Soda Shop. It is a short ride to Degrandchamps for blueberry picking and to South Haven for shopping Master Lodge is a wonderful spot for enjoying the beach, playing games, enjoying meals , and family time

We emailed in the beginning and you were helpful in answering questions because we were choosing between two properties. We liked that you answered email over the weekends! I received a text on Sunday from a team member just making sure everything was okay. I was happily surprised and appreciated that.
We made great memories and almost everyone wanted to stay another week!

Team was extremely nice and helpful. They were very realistic about property.
Property served our needs pretty well. Needs some updating but worked well for our large group. Only reason I wouldn't stay again is lack of air conditioning.

In this year of pandemic uncertainty there were questions of what to do. Do we cancel or do we come? Dawn was especially helpful guiding us through that decision and Shores was extremely amenable to the possibility of cancellation. It was greatly appreciated.
In 1991 our first two grandchildren were babies and we planned a family vacation over the fourth of July in Lake Geneva. It was a great success and we decided to make it a tradition. The next year someone suggested South Haven. We had a wonderful experience and decided this was an ideal location. In 1995 we discovered the Master Lodge was available. There was a history there. In the early 70's our oldest daughter had worked there her senior year in high school as a chambermaid when it was a small hotel. We picked her up at the Master Lodge to take her to college. She delighted in sharing stories with the grandchildren about her experiences at the lodge, changing sheets in the bedrooms and sneaking out to meet the tennis instructors at night. This year we had a 21st birthday celebration for a grandson. He has been coming to South Haven and Master Lodge every summer of his life. We've scattered ashes of two loved ones there, a grandfather and a sister. Two years ago we had a proposal there because it was so meaningful to our granddaughter and her fiance wanted to make it special. Last year she was married near South Haven and they spent their honeymoon at Master Lodge with us. (They did have a second honeymoon in the islands in the winter.) We share so many wonderful memories and we are looking forward to making more next year.

I said it all above. We are all looking forward to coming back next year to build more wonderful memories! Another memory is my late daughter was a chambermaid at the Master Lodge when it was a hotel. We picked her up there to take her to college at the U of I and waited on the porch while she gathered her belongings! She loved sharing that experience with all her nieces and nephews. I know she is with us there in spirit!

Working with your team has been a positive experience and they have managed to fulfill my wishes positively. I look forward to a very special 2019 thanks to their efforts.
As wonderful as always. We have a constant slide show of previous years spent there going on during our stay. The memories we have are priceless. As an example there are pictures of Caitie and the cousins as toddlers splashing in a blowup pool on the deck as toddlers and now we will be adding pictures of her and David on the deck celebrating their engagement. What a treasure!

We loved the Master Lodge. It perfectly accommodated our family of 17 with rooms/beds to spare. The highlight of our stay was sitting on the deck or the adjacent beach enjoying the view of the lake.

Appreciated Dawns empathy and customer service with our concerns. She was attentive with our calls. The Plummer was friendly when he came and told us adults should not use the toilet. Exterminator came but didn't return to address issue.
We had a wonderful vacation however with the amount we paid we expected the house to be in better standing. We do appreciate the offer to refund a small amount of rental fee.

It was a pleasant, painless experience and there were no bumps in the road.
One of the grandchildren summed it up when he said, "Nana, this is my favorite place on earth."

Two comments by two grandchildren say it all. A sixteen-year-old grandson said, "Nana, no matter how old I get, I'll always want to come to South Haven." And as they turned into the entrance of Palisades, a twenty-one-year-old granddaughter said, "My favorite place on earth!" They've been coming to South Haven every year of their lives. And we plan to continue.
