The Great Escape
The Great Escape
This 4 bedroom, 4 full bath house sleeps 12 guests with plenty of room for everyone to gather. The Great Escape was built in the late 1800's and has a rich history of being one of the first homes built in the area. Over the many years this home has stood proud and been brought up to date. You will love the large kitchen with over 11 feet of counter space, perfect for group cooking! That does not include the island with its own prep sink. The dining room is spacious and leads into the 682 sq. ft. living room filled with large windows to let the outside in. No waiting in line to use the bathroom in this house. 4 full baths await your large group. Look for the bathroom with the old fashioned pull chain toilet. It is not a replica. A previous owner searched old plumbing stores and junk yards in Chicago to find the bits and pieces to put this gem together. It has traveled from Arlington Heights, Illinois to New Milford, Connecticut to its final home in South Haven, Michigan. Just a little fun fact to share with you! Make sure you show the kids how to use it! The master bathroom has a slipper, jetted tub for a relaxing soak after a long day of fun. There is a convenient main floor bedroom with a separate main floor full bath for those who don't like steps to the second floor. The second floor offers another community bathroom with double sinks, master bedroom with attached bath, and 2 additions bedrooms. Look further at our site for sizes of beds. Additional sleeping on the main floor is a sofa sleeper in the living room and the 4 seasons room off the dining room. Want to spend your time outside? The front porch is perfect for people watching, enjoying star gazing, listening to the waves of Lake Michigan or if you are lucky enough watching a storm roll in off the lake. The back yard has a private area to sit and enjoy some quiet time in the shade with a drink or an early cup of coffee, or just sneak out there with your favorite book. Park your bike or beach toys in the garage. A washer and dryer are available for your use in the large utility room. Kids looking to play ball or throw the Frisbee around? There is plenty of room for them to enjoy the yard. You will never want to escape from The Great Escape in South Haven Michigan!!!
