It really is as wonderful as it looks in the pics!

  • 5 of 5
This is our 3rd year renting this terrific beach house -
we love everything about it. . . It is beautifully decorated, comfortable, spacious, and is equipped with everything you could need or want. It is a very easy house to entertain lots of friends in, but cozy enough to enjoy with just the family. The views from the house and front deck are great. The beach is right across the street and the private deck with grill is a wonderful place to eat and watch the sun set. The beach is gorgeous and quiet. If you can bring yourself to leave this perfect beach, there are lots of things to do in the area - blueberry picking, golf, antiquing in SW Michigan, 18 screen movie theater in town, casino, tennis, zoo, outlet mall, along with fun and varied restaurants. My family and I give this vacation home, and the Michigan City area, our highest recommendation!

Beautiful fall weekend with family

  • 4 of 5
The house was very clean and nice. Great communication with owner
The best part was the campfire on the beach Also the tub in master bath was huge.
The only things we said were missing but not deal breakers was a hot tub on deck and a grill across the street at lakeside lot. Believe there use to be one there the path to the lake was a little overgrown
We went to wineries which were really close, ate lunch at Tabor Hill it was great. Do not want to miss Brentwood Tavern in New Buffalo food and service wonderful and rooftop deck to wait for a table is beautiful.
Would stay there again

Great Gathering Place

  • 4 of 5
Family from the Chicago and Grand Rapids area gathered in this lovely home for a post-Thanksgiving celebration.
The views of Lake Michigan are good but I was surprised to see that the home is not ON the beach but across the street from it which is a bit misleading from the photos. You do see the tops of other houses, some cars and garbage cans when you look out the windows and then the water beyond that.
We had some trouble with the stove the first night and the manager of the property was very responsive. When her husband was unable to fix it, they brought in a rental stove/oven, installed it and had the other hauled away.
The fourth "bedroom" is really just a pass through area off the game room on your way to the stairs. It has two double beds and a twin....fine for teens and kids but not private.
The game room was pretty chilly but would be a great spot to hang out in warmer weather. We were also not able to use the Tuscan room or any of the three decks because of the temperature but the outdoor space that goes with this home is varied and plentiful!
I think you should be able to negotiate a better price in the winter months because you are realtively restricted to the indoors....other than great bundled up walks on the beautiful beach.

Beautiful Property!!!

  • 5 of 5
The property is stunning, the views of the lake are amazing! Especially waking up in the master bedroom and at sunset! Mia and Cindy were available for any question or concerns that arose! Hoping to come back in summer for a longer more relaxing stay to take advantage of the ameneties. We were only there for a football weekend.

40th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
This really is as good as it looks. Extremely well equipt and maintained. The trip down to the beach is shorter than it might appear and the lake is, well, Lake Michigan. Both the owner and the manager were very helpful and accomodating. We spent a week with our four sons, spouses and grandchildren. Large enough to afford some separation but with a dining table that has some room for major card games. Only regret was having to leave after a week.

Very nice home, beach was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and 4 and 5 year old kids had a great time during our stay at this lovely home. We spent a day in Chicago visiting Navy Pier and Shedd Aquarium, and the other days we spent on the beach enjoying ourselves. The home was in super clean condition, well maintained and well stocked. The kids had a great time playing ping pong and foosball and there were lots of beach toys available (we didn't bring any). Thank you for the great vacation!
