About Richard Riggs

I grew up in Southeast Michigan near Ann Arbor and went to school at Michigan State. After a number of years away I returned to live in my family home, an 1873 farmhouse where my great grandfather cleared the land. I have enjoyed the updates and remodeling that comes with the vintage of the house, but mostly appreciate the park-like setting in the area.

Richard Riggs purchased this house in 2013

Why Richard Riggs chose Southwest Michigan

I have enjoyed many trips to the Lake Michigan beaches and enjoyed the serenity of the water, dunes and breezes. The ability to observe the sunsets over the water with feet in the sand and to hear waves come ashore is an especially relaxing moment. To do so in an area which is notable for blueberries and close to other great shore communities a short drive away was particularly appealing to me. I hope you will come to appreciate this environment, as well! There are seasonal events and activities to enjoy from festivals for film and blueberry lovers, as well as year-round benefits of hiking and biking.

What makes this house unique

The proximity to the beach and lighthouse was an attraction to the area, and this house offered a great open floor-plan which will allow people to stay engaged and appreciate time together. A bicycle store is around the corner if you wish to rent bikes for a trip around town or down the Kal Haven trail. There are unique shops in South Haven and a short drive takes you to the Saugatuck community for even more shopping with a creative, artistic emphasis.

Better than we could've imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Found this spot for a girls weekend and it was perfect! So much space for everyone to sleep and spend time together. It was clean and had everything we needed! Easy check-in and check-out, walking distance from everything downtown. Loved it!

Family fun!

  • 5 of 5

Richard, We had a wonderful time at your spacious home with family of eight. Loved the big kitchen and huge dining room table for meals. All the bedrooms are good size. If you have kids the back room with two twins and bunk beds are a perfect fit. Everything was very clean and well equipped with lots of towels for bathrooms and kitchen was well stocked with utensils and dinnerware. Best part is how close you are to downtown and the beach. The whole family is in favor of a return visit for next year.

The house was perfect- enough room for everyone to have a bed and plenty of room in the common areas (living room, kitchen, etc.)!

Amazing location! Close to town!

  • 4 of 5

We went for blueberry fest. It was super convenient and we were able to walk to many places. There were 11 of us total. Plenty of room for everyone! Would definitely stay again! Richard was able to answer any questions I had during the booking process.

Great stay! Easy walk to downtown south haven. And walkable to water with some time. Clean and well appointed. Kids loved bunk beds. Only thing we had to go out and get was our own soap. :) would come again, thank you!

The South Haven area is historic as a maritime center. It still offers boaters a great marina setting with docking just a short walk to downtown. The beach is beautiful with a new children's play area and lovely sunsets. There are a variety of recreational opportunities including nearby golf courses, and summer rentals for water sports. The Kal Haven linear State Park is a hiking and biking trail starting from the beach area and proceeding into rural SW Michigan. As a starting point for regional exploring this property is a mile from the highway allowing an interesting visit to the Saugatuck/Douglas and Holland areas.
