Pleasant surroundings and plenty of room for 11 plus dog
We rented both the main cabin and barn. We had two people over 80, four people in their 50's, five in their 20's and larger sized dog. We had meals together in the barn, with plenty of cooking, serving dishes and utensils. The flowers around the property and a wooded area was relaxing and easy access to regional gems, such as Holland Farmer's Market. Nice area for a camp fire and grilling. The stray kitten on the property did cause our dog owner trouble in relaxing. Karen was most accommodating, baking us a cherry pie. We'd like to rent again.
Thanks! I hope to see you again. I enjoyed talking with the group, getting to know people. The kitten is getting used to being part of the family now and will adapt to dogs being here. I appreciated the dog owner keeping his dog on a leash. Thanks, too, for the knitted gifts! That kind of thoughtfulness and generosity is what we need more of in life.
Made our wedding week so easy
Nine of us enjoyed the property as we rented the cabin and artist's cabin. It was so nice to visit in the screened in porch anytime of the day or night The gardens made a nice photo opportunity for the wedding photos.
Thanks!! I hope to focus more on the gardens as time goes by. Wedding events are welcome here. And brunches are a relaxing way for guests to enjoy each other without thinking about cooking, baking and cleaning up.
Storm Turned Our Dream Vacation Into a Nightmare
The Red Spirit Retreat Center and its owner Karen are wonderful, but a storm on the first night of our VRBO stay, left the property without power and water for the entire time and the heat index was 104 degrees. There were no hotels available. We couldn't shower for a wedding we traveled to Michigan to attend, and of course the toilets couldn't be flushed. The groceries we purchased went bad and we had to eat our meals at restaurants. The CSA insurance we purchased turned out to be worthless, plus the man on the phone was rude to me. VRBO offered us practically nothing for our large investment, and was supposed to email to me the info on how to collect the tiny refund offered. Ten days have now passed and still no email. I will not be using VRBO again.
I, too, was surprised that insurance didn't compensate your experience. I will make sure that this problem does not happen again. Our utility company does not have a good reputation for repairs I've discovered. I'm either getting solar or a generator. The insurance companies are another matter. So sorry the storm ruined your vacation.
Beautiful and relaxing property near (but not too near) many activities
We booked the entire Red Spirit property for a family birthday weekend, with 14 people spread over the 3 buildings. Karen communicated with me prior to our visit, offered to bake her wonderful pies for our arrival and then to prepared an amazing special brunch when we had difficulty finding a restaurant that could accommodate our group. She was there on the property when we arrived, and check in was effortless. The houses were adorable and the separate buildings worked well to give the adults and teenagers some separate space, but still allow everyone to mingle and eat together. There was room for the kids to explore a bit, throw a ball around, walk the two dogs we brought, and build a fire in the evening. The property is perfectly isolated for privacy, but just a short drive from Saugatuck and/or New Haven shopping, beaches, restaurants and other activities. We’d come back again in a second.
Thank you so much!! I so enjoy helping people have the best vacation possible. Sometimes being flexible to guests' needs is all it takes to make a difference. I'm working on some ideas to make future stays even more fun and entertaining. Hope to see you again!! Your family is wonderful!
We brought young adult kids and two large dogs. The property was secluded & quiet.
The screened in porches were wonderful. Five bedrooms and two bathrooms were perfect for a family of five. The livingroom had a cozy cabin feel with wide knotty pine floors and log cabin walls in the bedrooms. Antique kitchen table and hoosier cabinet in the kitchen combined with comfortable modern day furniture in the livingroom. We were comfortable. Most important was the freedom to walk around the property with our dogs. The dogs safely explored the pond and woods. This was a long overdue family vacation where we could make new memories and relax at the same time. The drive to South Haven was maybe 15-20 mins and the drive to Lake Michigan was 5-10 mins. Karen was a wonderful host. She provided info on where to eat and what to do. Very personable and she has lived an interesting life. Fun to talk with especially on the screened porch. We ate delicious cherry pie (homemade by Karen) and played Bananagrams together. Really had a good time and would do it again. Would recommend the Sunset Cruise in South Haven, kayack on Lake Mi, go to the beach and enjoy the day there, and definitely eat at The Stray Dog in New Buffalo. Due to rain we did not use the fire pit. Karen helped make our stay wonderful. Highly recommend this place, especially if you have dogs who you treat like your four legged children. We will be back.
Thanks so much! I really enjoy interacting with guests and sharing our interests. I respect guest's privacy and let them decide how much they want to socialize with me.
Dogs seem to thrive in having a safe place to explore a bit and stretch their running legs. I love well-behaved dogs and want them to be with their "moms and dads" whenever possible.
