Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. It was really perfect for what we wanted- it is close to town, close to the beach, and there are many other places within driving distance if you want to go on a day trip. The kitchen was well-equipped for family cooking. The house has a basement, first floor, and second floor, so the kids could have space to hang out and be comfortable. There is a nice yard and fire pit (we didn't use it, but it was nice that it was there) New Buffalo is a cute town with nice shops, restaurants, and ice cream places. The owners of the house were easy to work with and we really enjoyed our stay. Would come back and recommend to others.

New Buffalo Gem

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our daughter's New Buffalo wedding. The house was so clean and well kept and had a great layout. It was in close proximity to town and we were able to walk to the beach, shops, ice cream, etc. in between wedding festivities. The private backyard provided wonderful outdoor wedding photos, as well as post-wedding relaxation. It was a pleasure to work with owners Don and Susan who answered all questions and provided clear communication. I wouldn't pass up an opportunity to use this location if you are looking for a New Buffalo rental!

fantastic weekend in new buffalo

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I escaped to New Buffalo for a lazy weekend and ended staying in this lovely home. We absolutely loved the home and it was perfect for our numerous late night chats, sit down dinners, and movie nights. It was a perfect distance from town and the lake, we hardly drove all weekend. And you felt right at home in this lovely house. My friends and I are hoping to make this a yearly tradition. I will recommend this place to everyone. A gem in the middle of beautiful New Buffalo.

family from Naperville IL

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful vacation staying at the cottage. The house has everything you need and more. My teen age sons both commented immediately how nice it was !! The basement was a huge plus and loved the convenience of the washer and dryer. All the pictures reflect the beautiful decor, so many details have been thought of for a great stay. I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in New Buffalo. Walking distance to the Marina and quaint downtown. We loved going for ice cream and of course you have to eat at Redamaks and the Stray Dog. We loved the New Buffalo beach but also went to the Warren Dunes which are just 10 minutes up highway 12. Great location,fun harbour town, great for families, 5 stars !!
