AT A GLANCE
Located on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, at the mouth of the Black River, South Haven has five miles of pristine, white sandy beaches. The harbor has a rich maritime history, but South Haven has agricultural roots, too. Whether you want to see tall ships, take a walk in a vineyard or pick your fruit at one of the many farms before heading to the annual Blueberry Festival, you will find what you are looking for in South Haven. Convenient to Chicago and Detroit, South Haven is close enough for weekend stays but also completely removed from the metro areas.
The Preserve at Woodland Harbor is a residential community located in South Haven, Mich., along Lake Michigan’s eastern shore. For buyers looking for homes in southern Michigan, The Preserve at Woodland Harbor has plans from extended home sites to smaller cottages. Buyers can choose from a variety of locations, views, floor plans and prices.
Residences in the community include Arts and Crafts cottages, ridge homes and harbor homes. The Arts and Crafts-inspired cottages feature covered front and rear porches. The ridge homes, designed to revitalize the ravine’s beauty, are premium homes equipped with state-of-the-art features. The harbor homes feature a rooftop deck or multi-level porch to take in the scenic harbor views and river sounds. There are optional plans with a media room and a home office available.
Two-thirds of the development is dedicated to open space and common areas, designed to inspire a sense of a close-knit, cottage community. At both ends of the community there is an in-ground private pool and clubhouse, complete with full kitchen and changing areas. At the center, the community features a pavilion and park. There is also a volleyball court, fitness center, barbeque area and biking and hiking trails.
The Preserve at Woodland Harbor is a 40-acre riverfront development that offers an expansive landscape for year-round residency. A walkable neighborhood by design, the community has minimized roadways and limited interior traffic. Miles of walkways stretch in all directions, from the river bank to the beach, through the meadows and ravines.
The private Woodland Harbor Marina, situated on the Black River five minutes from downtown South Haven, has 110 boat slips for sale to Preserve residents.
