Great place to stay!
Five couples on a weekend getaway. Plenty of room for all of us. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, nice fireplace, beautiful setting, close to the wineries. We enjoyed our stay would highly recommend this house.
Pictures don't do it justice
I'm not even sure I could have a pro/con list for this property - it's really hard to find anything negative about it. We had 4 families stay here with kids ranging from ages 1-8 years old. This place was perfect for our stay. We lucked out with some amazing weather for the entire long weekend. The kitchen was fully stocked, we had no problem making breakfast lunch and dinner every day. The pool was definitely the highlight for the kids (adults too!), stocked with pool toys, goggles and beach towels. The house was very clean, well organized and some fabulous artwork and decor in almost every room. The beach was only a 10 minute bike ride away but to be honest we didn't spend much of the rest of our time away from the house. Each night we made a fire at the fire pit (fully stocked for us with firewood) and made s'mores. Such a great spot - we will most definitely be back.
Adult Weekend Getaway
This house is absolutely perfect for any large group! It had literally everything you could possibly need and is very spacious. The rooms are amazing and the master bathroom has a beautiful jacuzzi tub and walk in shower. There is a fire pit and wonderful screened in porch which not only has all the beach towels you could need but also mini fridges for convenience. The pool was the perfect temperature even in the fall and a great way to relax after a long day. The owner is great to work with and very accommodating. We had such a wonderful time staying here we've decided we'd like to come back every year and make this an annual trip for our friends as well as come back hopefully in the summer with all of our families. This was by far the best place to stay in the area and made our trip away fantastic!!
Great Family Vacation Home
This house was the perfect vacation home for our family of 9 adults and 4 small children. Plenty of room for everyone with 5 bedrooms and 4. 5 baths. Every amenity was already there for us including pool toys, beach towels, bikes and all the kitchen items you could need. The house was very clean, beds were comfortable and the large 3 to 6ft pool with chaise lounges and umbrellas was perfect. Watching a good thunderstorm while rocking on the large wrap around porch made the rain enjoyable. Less than 5- 10 minutes to New Buffalo, Blueberry Picking, Kayaking and the beach was perfect.
Beautiful Place to stay In Michigan
We had a very enjoyable time at this place. We had a family of 10 adults and 6 children under the age of three. The children had a great time at the swimming pool and also the nearby playground area which was only a five minute drive from our place. Would highly recommend this place.
I really can't add anything different to what all the other reviews have stated. Minus a couple appliance issues (which were fixed promptly), there wasn't one negative aspect of our stay. The pool was great and was used daily by the kids and adults, as well as the basketball court. The house itself has a ton of space and plenty of bedrooms/bathrooms. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a beautiful home with a pool AND less than a mile to the beach.
