Description

Summer Rentals must begin and end on Saturday

The Purple House proudly sits at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Kalamazoo Streets, sporting vibrant colors and the vintage details of a Victorian "painted lady".  From the classic front porch to the intricate inlaid wood floors, original woodwork and tall ceilings, there's nothing like it in South Haven.

The front entryway features the original wood staircase, stained glass window and decorative fireplace.  The spacious main level includes two large living rooms and dining room, a bedroom with a queen bed and a half bath.  The kitchen includes a vintage sink, but otherwise features modern appliances and cabinetry, plus another dining area.  Upstairs you'll find another four spacious bedrooms and three full bathrooms, all sporting beautiful antique dressers and handsome woodwork.

Some items to note:
In this nearly 100 year old home, you'll be asked to remove your shoes at the door to preserve the condition of the wood floors.
There is no central air.  Each room has a window or free-standing room airconditioner to keep your family comfortable.

Loved the purple house and hope to be back! The rooms are huge - everyone had their own bathroom which was so nice. Each room felt like a mini apartment!
