Buchanan House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful and Secluded newer 4BR 2BA Cottage. Sleeps 12

Enjoy a memorable vacation at our cottage on Dayton Lake in Galien, MI, only a 90 minute drive from Chicago. The cottage is a fully furnished 6 year old lakefront cedar home on 6 acres of private wooded lot. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, an open living/dining/kitchen area, a brand new ('08) finished rec. basement and a large furnished 2nd floor loft (4th bedroom). The cottage sleeps a total of 12 people.

It is fully furnished with a country-rustic decor throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, utensils, etc., and has a solid wood dining table for 10. There is a large sofa and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room. There's a big TV in the family room loft for your video games . The personal touches in decor along with the themed bedrooms give you the feeling of being in the comfort of your own home. Enjoy beautiful lake views from the living/kitchen area and wooded views from the bedrooms.

P.S. There are no neighbors in sight!

HOUSE DETAILS: The kitchen and living room have 8 foot sliding glass doors leading to a huge party deck for barbecues and watching the kids play out on the over 100 ft sand beach. There is a Weber gas grill for your use on the deck along with patio furniture and lawn chairs. There is a large gravel circle driveway leading to the house with room for parking.

***The basement was finished in '08 and has provided an extra 1700 sq feet of living space. There are two sitting areas, one in the rear of the basement and one towards the front, for watching TV on the large screen projection TV with satellite hook-up and including all of the movie channels. There is a pool table, electronic dart board, nice poker table, and a bar that converts to a craps, roulette, and blackjack table. Have fun!

No matter the season, there is always something to do.

THINGS TO DO---SUMMER: For your use, there is a folder filled with brochures of nearby places of interest and there are also local phone books with theatres, restaurants, and shopping. There are usually festivals and fairs happening in and around the area. In the Summer enjoy swimming and sunning on the approximately 100' sandy beach. There is a canoe and boat for your use for fishing or exploring the lake. Use the picnic table for a nice picnic on the beach. The large grassy areas near the house can be used to throw a Frisbee or ball around or to play lawn games like bocce ball, bean bags, or horseshoes...all available. Visit some nearby farmer's markets for the freshest fruits and vegetables, homemade jams and fresh baked pies and breads. Try the local wines at the three nearby wineries in the area or take the kids to the nearby Pottawatame Zoo, go horseback riding, or to the nearby Mishawaka, IN( and civilization) for some urban shopping and dining. New Buffallo Four Winds Casino & Resort nearby.

THINGS TO DO---FALL AND WINTER: In the Fall, go apple and pumpkin picking with the kids or for a hayride. Take in a Notre Dame game in South Bend, IN, only a 15 minute drive. Niles Haunted House Scream Park---Compare With Chicago Prices , Wineries: Tabor Hill And Roundbarn Winery

Winter offers the opportunity to go ice-fishing, ice-skating, and sledding on the lake and snow-mobiling on the abundant trails in the area. There are nearby sledding hills and a ski resort an hour away. There are many tree farms also to chop down your very own X-mas tree to take home. Come back and enjoy some hot chocolate or totties by the fire with your family as you watch the snow falling through the 2 large 8' patio doors.

Wonderful and quiet!

We rented this lakefront home the week of our sons graduation from Notre Dame and we were thrilled with the location (25-30 minutes from campus) as well as the house itself. The core group included grandparents, parents and siblings of the graduate (8 people, ages 74 to 9). The location is peaceful and beautiful; swans and blue herons on the lake, Baltimore Orioles visiting the huge deck daily, no immediate neighbors and the house had all we needed and more (although bottled water for drinking purposes is recommended). We hosted a small party for the graduate and his roomates and the large side yard, deck and lake suited this purpose very well. We enjoyed fishing (brought our own rods) and boating on the lake. The homeowners had a few yard games (bocce and corn hole toss was a hit!) available. Not any really close grocery store, but as we were in and out of South Bend a lot, we were able to pick up supplies within 20 minutes of the cottage. We could have easily slept a few more people in this house, too. The beds were quite comfortable and the great room area was nice for all to "hang out". I would love to come back and just enjoy the peaceful nature this cottage has to offer as well as explore the areas north and west of the cottage! Maybe in the near future!

Amazing

My brothers and I were looking for a spot to gather for our annual fishing trip/family reunion after our Wisconsin location closed, and it needed to accommodate a large group with varying interests. Well, this Michigan gem could not have been more perfect.

The accommodations were terrific, and the grounds, beautiful. Some of us watched NotreDame football on the big screen TV, while others fished, and still others golfed at one of the local courses. There are 3 separate areas of activity in this cottage not including the expansive deck or property, and we used them all.

We had a great time, and look forward to making this a family tradition.

Thank you for your great hospitality, and we’ll see you next year!

The most amazing house!!!

I cannot say better things about the owner and this property. This house has everything!! I went with a group of 10 and we can't wait to go back.
OUTSIDE: A boat, canoes, a fishing dock, fire-pit and plenty of lawn chairs to relax on. There is a really nice play gym for the kids outside and plenty of room in the yard. They have bags sets and other lawn games, we had a great game of football with plenty of space to run around.
INSIDE: Beautifully decorated, cabin style with plenty of seating, room for everyone. The entire basement is a game room with everything you can imagine.
We left for this trip expecting to explore the town and ended up barely leaving the place the entire weekend. We did visit a local winery that was a lot of fun and pretty close.
Sandra was incredibly helpful with the check in, directions, things to do, etc. I would highly recommend this to any group.

40th Anniversary weekend for parents

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 16, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2011
We rented the property for a 40th wedding anniversary getaway weekend for my parents. The owner was very helpful with setting up the weekend and answering all our questions. It was a weekend getaway with the immediate family including grandkids. The property was clean and well maintained. While the listing photos were accurate, they did not due the property justice. It was even better in person. So open, so much space. It was very secluded, but not far from towns and shopping/dining. There were 4 families with 4 children between the ages of 5 and 7. My mom and dad loved the large dining table and benches where we all sat together to eat dinner. The kids loved the beach area and swing set. We enjoyed many relaxing hours sitting on the patio watching the kids play and fish on the beach and pier. Lake was quiet. We enjoyed the row boat. In the evening we had a fire and then enjoyed coming inside for games in the large basement. There was something for everyone and we loved every minute of our stay. We will definitely try to come back and refer family and friends. Thanks for sharing your beautiful piece of heaven with us.
