We stayed here last fall for our company retreat. I've stayed at 5-6 large homes in MI over the last 7-8 years as I plan my company's yearly retreat. This home is the best that we've stayed at. It is located just off Red Arrow Highway and thus is about 150-200 yard from the Roadhouse restaurant and a general store (beer/wine, some limited food options). It is conveniently located about 7 minutes from New Buffalo, 10-12 minutes to Warren Dunes, 15 minutes to a winery or two and 12 minutes to Greenbush restaurant and brewery. Also, it is about a 5 minute walk to the beach, though the specific area of the beach has about 100 ft. of public space!
The house itself is great for large groups. The kitchen and main floor space are large and can accommodate a big group that wishes to enjoy each other's time. The loft can then serve as another private space. The outdoor area is nice as well. It was October, but it would be an enjoyable space for the summer. I like luxury when we rent larger homes and this property met that requirement. The amenities are top notch.
- Second fridge would be helpful
-Open up the garage for guests. There is no basement, but a ping pong table and games in the garage would go a long way...
- Here's a never going to happen suggestion- another bathroom would be ideal given the number of people this house can fit and that one bath needs to serve as the main floor "potty' room.
Is this house perfect? Is any house perfect? No. This is a great (!) house, worthy of a rating of 5 (not just an "I feel bad if I don't give this a '5' rating"). We've rented a "different" house each year for the last 7-8 years of company retreats. I may break course and head back to this home. It is worth it!
