I stayed at Bedford Falls this past May. I absolutely loved my three days and two nights! The house was so clean, bright, cozy, and extremely comfortable. Diane and her family have provided everything you could possibly want and/or need. The convenience of being so very close to Lake Michigan is an ideal place to vacation. You can walk or use the bikes that are available in the garage to travel around this quiet, beautiful, restful setting. Diane's house is large with all the comforts of home. The town is so quaint and surrounded by the crisp, clean, cool waters of Lake Michigan. Daine and her family provide maps, booklets that will help you find various places to eat and enjoy homemade meals, brochures on things to see and do, etc. I didn't want to leave Bedford Falls! It is a place where you can just relax and be care-free. The house is filled with furnishings and everything else that will make your stay memorable and most enjoyable. I plan on returning in the very near future. I want to thank Diane and her family for making my time at Bedford Falls one that I will forever and always remember...
Sincerely, Carole R. DiZeo

My two daughters feel our "Women Time" is sacred yet since the births of my 3 grand children, 4, 2 and 7 months, we've needed to pay special attention to our expanding needs. This home was IDEAL with loving care spent on every detail for all ages, games, DVDs, all sized bikes and helmets, shadedfenced yard, flowers, generous indoor space and three beaches within minutes walk. Aptly named because the spirit of love, as in the movie, IT'S A BEAUTIFUL LIFE, oozes from every corner, helping us to focus on what really matters, each other. Definitely a repeat kind of place no matter the season!

the pictures do not do this home justice! we spent labor day weekend here with three families, ranging in age from 1-83 years old. the house set up was PERFECT! there is so much room and everything you can think of is right there.....somewhere! we were all able to sit around the large dining table for meals, took advantage of the bikes and wagon, and had a great family weekend. diane was great to work with and we do hope to visit again!

Had an Awesome Time

Just finished up Labor Day weekend at this great house in New Buffalo. This place is fully stocked with just about everything you can think of - adult and kids bikes, beach toys and umbrellas, all the kitchenware, utensils, appliances, etc. and is CLEAN and comfortable! The rooms are very nicely furnished and there is plenty of space for people of all ages to spread out and enjoy themselves without being on top of each other. The photos on the web site are accurate. The outside sitting area is peaceful. Everyone loved our stay here. I would not only recommend this house but plan to come back.

Family of Six

This property was wonderful for our family of 6. It was comfortable, spacious, and full of fun! We really enjoyed the ping pong table, the swing outside, the gas grill, and the extensive collection of videos and dvds!. I would compare it to your grandparents' home where they have anticipated every need you may have while staying with them! New Harbor Beach was beautiful, and I would definitely recommend a ride to Warren Dunes State Park. We also took a drive to Holland Michigan for a long bide-ride and a boat rental.

Thanks to Diane for opening her home to all of us to enjoy!
