COME HOME TO TRAILSIDE
Living in Trailside brings together the best of two worlds. Here you share a tranquil setting with a cluster of neighbors in homes that are designed for comfort and ease of caretaking. Yet you also live close to the vibrant Lake Michigan resort town of South Haven. Whether you come only on weekends or stay year-round, this is where you will find the calmness, the outdoor adventure, breathtaking scenery and happy times you seek. Trailside is where your heart is.
YOUR PLACE NEAR LAKE MICHIGAN
For decades people have escaped their busy lives to spend a few precious days in South Haven. Now you can call this home. Within minutes you can play on Lake Michigan or its soft, sandy beaches. Ask chefs to prepare sumptuous meals. Bring home great finds from charming boutiques and galleries. Sip award-winning vintages and craft beers at nearby wineries and breweries. Fill quarts with fresh blueberries. And be spellbound by gorgeous sunsets. This is your getaway every day.
When your home is near a trail, adventure awaits! Our Trailside path takes you directly to the 14-mile Van Buren Trail and beyond to the 34.5-mile Kal-Haven Trail. Follow them into downtown South Haven and out to our beautiful countryside. Hike. Run. Bike. Horseback ride. Snowmobile. Cross-country ski or snowshoe. Our trails will refresh your spirit.
SOFT, SANDY BEACHES
South Haven has some of the most beloved beaches not only during summer but all year-round. Fly kites in the spring. Splash in cool waves all summer. Take long walks in the fall. Marvel at the ice formations each winter. North Beach and South Beach are separated by the Black River pier and our big red lighthouse. Make memories with your family and friends.
If you are a thrill-seeker, you will find plenty of excitement on our waters. Lake Michigan and the Black River are great for watersports. Reel in a mighty king salmon. Cruise or water ski across wide-open waters. Paddle along our scenic river. Or splash and play with your dog at Deerlick Creek Beach. Hours of fun are just a skipping stone away.
