We are area natives - my husband was born in Oak Lawn, IL and relocated to Michigan City as a child and I also grew up in Michigan City, IN. Today we live on his family's former summer property and are blessed to enjoy the Harbor Country lifestyle year-round. We have three daughters who attend school in New Buffalo. Chad is a realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in New Buffalo and has been the number one agent in southwest Michigan for the past several years. I am an advertising writer and own a firm call Upside, also located in New Buffalo, MI. We are a great resource to help you plan a dream summer vacation or a fun weekend getaway with good friends. We are thrilled to share the lake living life with you!

As year-round residents of Harbor Country we experience every day all that this wonderful area has to offer. We invested in this vacation home to create a family-friendly place that can help families create new traditions and share in the Harbor Country experience.

What's great about this property is that it feels like you've completely gotten away from it all. The location is right in the heart of Harbor Country, but is set far off the road with a huge yard ringed by trees. The result is a secluded, yet open feeling where you can hang out in the back yard and watch for shooting stars, have a cookout with family and friends, and hop on a bike for short ride to one of our beautiful Lake Michigan beaches. Lots of beds, laundry facilities and an open floor plan make this cottage a perfect set-up for large families, a group of friends and children are welcome.
