About Dennis and Ilene Durham

We are a retired couple and enjoy our vacation home in New Buffalo, especially when our grandchildren join us. We take pride in our home and the city of New Buffalo. We also enjoy the New Buffalo Beach.

Dennis and Ilene Durham purchased this house in 2011

Why Dennis and Ilene Durham chose New Buffalo

We decided to purchase a home in Michigan because we have rented for a while and our children and grandchildren love being at the beach and playing in the sand.

Beautiful home, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our short stay in this beautiful, impeccably clean home. It is equipped with everything you could need...kitchen utensils, extra bedding, you name it! Also great was the location, close to the supermarket and cute little downtown New Buffalo. It is not on the water, but short of that....Perfect!

Thanks, for a great stay! We'll be back.

The most delightful house!

  • 5 of 5
To say that this house had everything we were looking for would be an understatement, since it had more. My husband, our 15 month old, and myself were hoping to get away for a few relaxing days, and this house made our vacation absolutely perfect. First, the house is simply beautiful and was extremely clean and comfortable. To top that off, the owners have stocked it with everything you could possibly need for an infant, toddler, or young child which makes it so nice not to have to pack everything from home. Having a toddler makes "vacation" interesting, but the house is equipped with baby gates, wagons, toys, a water table, a high chair, etc. Our son loved it!
The house is perfectly situated a block away from the grocery store (which of course we went to daily), and a short walk to the beach and restaurants. Didn't get in the car once!
For us, this house could not have been better.

Perfect house and location for our NB stay!

We rented this house for our sisters weekend and the location was perfect, the house clean, and accommodated the 5 of us wonderfully. . Details that you wouldn't have thought of were plenty. We enjoyed our stay here.

Great House and Location

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in NB with our adult children and had an outstanding time. House: Great place, lots of space; good WI-FI connection, and fantastic cooking amenities. The beds are well made and comfortable.The porch and deck were used quite often for reading , morning coffee, and conversation. The area is very quiet . Town: My sister had recommended NB to us. The previous two summers we stayed in South Haven. NB is not as developed, and that is actually a benefit. It is more quiet and laid back. The downtown restaurants in NB are far superior to the limited choices in South Haven. There is a grocery store near the house which has an outstanding selection of food (including organic). An AMTRAK station is downtown which will take you to Chicago for only $20-30 round trip. Suggest you buy tickets in advance (e-tickets only) because the train may be filled since it starts in Detroit. Beach: The beach in NB is very nice and clean. You can also rent kayaks and jet skis at the beach. In the house shed there are beach umbrellas and chairs.There is an additional beach nearby in a town called Union Pier. The parking is limited. Bike Trails & Jogging: If you are interested in biking there is a superb back road trail system. This involves paved roads which have essentially no traffic and span the whole area. You can stop by the visitors center in NB and they can also provide you with maps. If you need to rent bikes there is a store named Outpost Sports on US 12, about 1/4 mile from the house which rents Trek bikes. If you are a runner you can use the bike trails, or cross US 12 south from the house and run through the tree lined neighborhood. We definitely will consider returning to NB and renting this property. Ilene (owner) was always helpful and responsive .

a life saver

  • 5 of 5
We had a remarkable wonderful stay at this home over memorial day weekend. We actually own another home in the area but since we were planning to have a baby shower there with more overnight guests than our home could accommodate we rented this home as a place for two of the young families to stay. When we arrived at our home saturday, for the sunday shower, we found it uninhabitable. The construction work that was supposed to be completed was nowhere near done and we didn't even have our refrigerator and stove moved back in. This beautiful New Buffalo property saved the day. We set to work in the kitchen of this unit sunday morning and by 3pm had all the food prepared, tables and chairs set up on the expansive deck, swings hung for the toddlers, umbrellas up to shade from the sun and a perfect spot to enjoy the day. Our guests were so impressed with how well appointed the home was when we told then the story. Not only was it able to sleep the young families but the kitchen had everything we could hope for to prepare and serve food to our guests. The backyard was it's own mini park for the children, and the patio was a perfect spot for the adults to sit and visit and watch their young ones safely. I can't say enough about this wonderful home...( and I adore the wraparound upper and lower decks) A huge thank you to the owners for taking such care in making this home cozy, functional and fun. They really thought of everything

Wineries/Fishing Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We came to New Buffalo to enjoy some wine tasting and try our hand at coho fishing. This house is beautiful inside and out, and did not disappoint. We only stayed for the weekend and being off peak season, were able to rent for two nights. Very, very nice accommodations for the cost. Perfect walking distance to downtown restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay here again if we were looking for lodging in the NB area.
