Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We have never stayed in a rental home before and were extremely excited when we got to the house. The reason we picked this house was they allow dogs. The house is beautiful. The architecture and furnishings were lovely. There is an in ground pool which was thee other reason we choose this house. The pool is very big and heated..bonus! It is a quick walk to the beach and one of the best restaurants we ate at was just 3 houses down. Very close to New Buffalo too. I would definitely stay here again. Great vacation!

Beautiful home with multiple fireplaces and pool!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a long girls weekend and had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful, spacious and decorated with a casual sophistication. The large front room was very light and we enjoyed several cozy conversations in front of the fire. The two-sided fireplace also allows for relaxing dinners in the lovely adjoining dining room. The bedrooms were large, two with private bathrooms and three with gas fireplaces (the house has five fireplaces in all). Unfortunately, it was too cold to take advantage of the large pool in the backyard but we did take the short walk to the beach several times to enjoy the view. The house is a short drive to several surrounding restaurants, shops and antique stores so we were in heaven! All in all, a wonderful house for a get away…can’t wait to come back to enjoy the pool in summer!

Comfortable home with awesome pool!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful long fall weekend at this comfy home. Backyard trees were ablaze with color and the roar of the lake waves could be heard while sitting on the attractive back patio with pool lights adding to atmosphere each evening. Our group used three of the four bedrooms and all were attractively decorated and very clean. We loved the openness of the great room and the oversized elegant dining room. We will definitely be back next fall.

This home is gorgeous!! PLENTY of space and was very well- maintained. Gorgeous two way fireplace in the living room which leads into the dining room. This vacation home is just the right place, whether you are getting away for the fall/winter or enjoying the sun by the massive in ground pool in this homes backyard. The home is a close walk to the beach. The owner was very responsive and helpful. I would highly recommend this house for a getaway in Pure Michigan.

Stunning and Luxurious Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this house! It is such a beautiful place with tons of natural light, a gorgeous yard and pool, a cozy tv room, plenty of beds and really nice, original touches. It is so close to the beach and to the shops and restaurants, but it also feels like a get away. Everything is up-to-date and the house was perfect for our weekend away!

Casual Elegance

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed a fantastic fall getaway at this beautiful home this past weekend, it was the perfect retreat! Five fireplaces and an uber elegant design scheme make this home quite the idyllic setting! The large bright great room and attached formal dining room is the perfect place to gather with groups. The surround sound speakers are such a nice feature! I look forward to returning to this lovely home!!
