Adult Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Heaven in Michigan

  • 5 of 5

We truly couldn't have asked for more...big beautiful wrap around porch, rockers, chairs, fire pits, screened in porch! POOL w/ noodles, floats, balls. BIKES - tandem, mountain bikes. Basketball court! BIG open kitchen STOCKED - what a fun surprise. Spices etc. All kinds of "if you forgot to bring...." items in the, books, movies, candles, toiletries. PERFECT 20 minute walk to the beach - beautiful and lovely. Less than 10 minute walk to restaurants, local grocery. We had kids in the pool and we adults sat around the fire. We enjoyed coffee on the porch and loved every second. Plenty of space to sprawl out. THANKS to the owners for sharing this GEM!!!

Even better than we expected

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 family members ranging in age from 2-64 stay here for the week. We also had another family of 4 visit us during the weekend and never felt cramped. There was plenty of room to spread out and we all found the home to be much nicer than the pictures here show. We spent a lot of time at the pool and enjoyed the volleyball net and basketball hoop. The huge yard was the site of frequent wiffle ball games. The tandem bicycle was an unexpected surprise and we used it frequently to make evening trips around this very bicycle friendly community. The house was clean, comfortable and stocked with so many items from pool towels and toys to paper goods and kitchen spices. We cooked all our meals at home and loved having a table big enough for everyone to sit together. The owner was quick to respond to any questions that arose throughout the week. It is a bit of a walk and across a busy street to beach access. There is public beach access in New Buffalo and Warren Dunes which are about a 10 minute drive in either direction. The only con we can report are the two-three train whistles throughout the night/early morning which would be common to any home in this town and surrounding areas. Overall we had a wonderful, relaxing week here and look forward to planning our next trip.
