Description

Summer Rentals Begin or End on Friday

Shores Vacation Rentals is thrilled to host visitors at "Gather at the Shore". It is THE perfect place for a vacation with your large family or group. Situated just off Blue Star Hwy between the lakefront communities of South Haven and St. Joseph it is perfectly situated for day trips of exploring for antiques, visiting wineries and farm stands, dining, and shopping.

The property is lovely with lots of mature trees providing shade and a wide clearing lakeside for full views of Lake Michigan. Spend lazy days at the public beach just steps down the road, gather together for a campfire, grill dinner, soak in the hot tub, and enjoy breathtaking nightly sunsets!

Both homes are updated but casual with many nice finishes and amenities. Modern kitchens and baths, open layouts, fireplaces, and lots of sleeping space ensures you will have plenty of room to enjoy time together as well as plenty of space for privacy.

2020 Shoreline conditions:  Lake Michigan's high water levels have affected the condition of the bluff, which steep and unsafe for climbing.

This property is more than we expected in so many ways. The views are stunning and the homes themselves are beautiful. We had a party of 10 adults and 8 children (two age 1 and under). The smaller home was great for the big kids - they LOVED having their own space and a sleep over. The big house was just as lovely. We pretty well lived on the deck. Some items of note: - If you have littles who are crawling or just learning to walk, bring a baby gate with you. We were able to create some make shift ones to keep them off the stairs, but I would bring one the next time. - If you are planning on making pancakes bring a griddle. We typically bring one but didn't think to this trip. Wish we had. - We brought citronella candles with us and were very glad we did. Bugs are expected up there, just glad we had the extra help with them. - We wish we had brought our own set of knives for cooking. While the kitchens are both very well stocked the knives game was a bit weak. This is something we're probably going to do for all our trips though. - Flashlights! Walking in between the two houses when it got dark was a bit dangerous without any light. Fortunately we all had cell phones but they would have been nice. - While the listing didn't specifically say there was beach access we looked at Google Earth and it appeared there may have been some. Due to erosion however the water is not accessible from the property. It looks like there might be some plans to put a nice deck out near where the stairs are today (the bottom of which appear to be washing away), it was a bit nerve wrecking with no railing on the landing that is currently at the top to sit at. We had a rule that kiddos weren't allowed there without an adult but still gave some of us heartburn. We loved this location and will definitely consider heading up this way again.

We had a nice time at gather at the shore. The houses are as described. The East cottage does not have air conditioning which is disclosed but did make for some hot and humid sleeping. The trees do keep the house cooler but you can only get the cross breeze if the upstairs bedroom doors are open, which was hard for us because of babies sleeping in there. In the main house the flooring in the bedrooms didn't seem to be completed. During our stay the stairway to the beach was unusable, but even if it would have been usable there would have been very little beach there. There was a public beach very close, walking distance, but on a fast moving highway so walking with little kids might not be advised. Overall it was a nice property and as described.
