a little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tara Rosa for a long weekend while visiting family in the area. It was just perfect ! Incredibly charming, clean, and well stocked with anything we needed. We especially loved the large kitchen with vintage touches, and the backyard and fire pit. It was just a lovely, short walk to the beach. Sharon was incredibly easy to work with as well. We'll definitely return to this little piece of heaven!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Tara Rosa is a very low key family vacation spot. A cute cottage walking distance to the beach which my four grandkids were thrilled about. The kitchen is bright and very spacious for dining and very well stocked. Sleeping arrangements are made easy with the pullout sofa, but of course the kids chose their sleeping bags on the inside front porch. The immediate area well paved streets for those evening walks. New Buffalo is just a short drive up the road for shopping or just to go for ice cream. I plan on coming back in the fall for a friends getaway weekend . Tara Rosa is my favorite place.

Owner is wonderful to work with!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Tara Rosa Cottage for a week this August, 2016 and within a month of booking something came up and we are unable to go on vacation. I contacted Sharon, explained the situation and requested a refund. She was very understanding and compassionate and returned our money right away. I am so grateful to her for this. Thank you Sharon!

Very charming and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Very charming. Plenty of room for a cottage and not the musty smell so many have. Fresh and clean throughout. Full kitchen with large dining table. Extra sleeping on fold out couch. Perfect for a vacation!

A tight squeeze

  • 3 of 5

This house was okay. It's IS very close to the beach, and that's definitely why we chose it. The inside of the house is really very small, though. We have three small children, and we had a hard time even squeezing a sleeping bag onto the remaining floor of the "kids" bedroom because the twin beds fill up the whole space. The other bedroom has only a full-sized bed--fortunately, my husband and I are small-ish people. The furniture throughout is musty and worn, and the kitchen is so full of watermelon trinkets and tchotchkes that there is virtually no room to cook at all. Even though I always cook all of our meals in advance and bring them along frozen, I struggled to make do in the kitchen. I don't think there were any drinking glasses anywhere, for instance--only plastic cups. In any case, it was okay, and we definitely enjoyed the proximity to the lake and the large yard.
