Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1Baths (Sleeps 5)

This lovely cabin in a private setting is spacious yet has a warm rustic feeling. Built in the 1940s, it has a stone fireplace, maple hardwood floors, pine walls, a cathedral ceiling in the living room with a cozy sleeping loft on the mezzanine, plus two bedrooms on the main level with queen beds. There is a separate dining room that seats 6 and a breakfast room off of the kitchen. The wraparound porch has chairs and a large round table for dining or just sipping coffee.It is surrounded by a very large open lawn with mature trees and looks out at a riding stables. You can sit on the large wraparound porch or walk over to the stables and take a trail ride or riding lesson in the large indoor arena. Pony rides are also available for children. The beach is a short walk, or drive for 1 minute, park in our private spot, and walk around the corner to the beach.

The decor has been thoughtfully created by a Chicago designer and builder to be unique yet comfortable.

This home has a new 95% efficiency furnace and central air, newer appliances and is very well maintained. Pets are welcome. Email for details.

The surroundings : This home sits on a large lot and is surrounded by trees. You can see the riding stables across from the private drive. Guests can take trail rides, children can have pony rides, or just visit and bring them carrots. They are very people friendly. The beach is a short walk from the cabin, and we provide private pkg around the corner from the stairs to the water if you choose to drive for the two minutes it takes to get there.

Restaurants and shopping: There is a very nice grocery store down highway 12, which takes all of 10 minutes to get to by car. If you drive another 5 minutes, you will arrive at Light House Mall, a very large discount mall with national retailers. You can also shop and dine in New Buffalo, Michigan, which is 10 minutes in the other direction on highway 12. There are boutiques and Chicago quality restaurants in town and further up along 12, or you can head into the quaint restored town of Three Oaks to see theater, art galleries, shop, or dine.

A quaint little slice of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

This quaint little cabin went beyond our best expectations. VRBO properties sometimes do not live up to the hype they advertise, or have complicated owners who suck the joy out of a vacation. This certainly was not the case.

It was easy to maintain contact with the owner, and it never felt like we were impeding on someone's home. The fireplace was stocked with a surplus of wood which is a huge plus, and each morning we were greeted with a warm sun rising over the horse stables.

Even though we were sharing the space with another couple, it never felt cramped. The bedrooms were accommodating, and the dining room table was spacious. There was also a surplus of seating that left us satisfied and cozy.

We enjoyed a walk to the beach, and spent the rest of the time playing cards, reading, and relaxing.

If your looking for a budget friendly place to recharge and get away from the busyness of life, I highly recommend you investigate this cabin further. We've already begun discussing our next trip to the cabin; this time bringing our children.

Wonderful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Truly cozy! Snow was shoveled upon our arrival and everything was ready to go. We were there on a weekend with outside temps ~10 degrees and the home was a little drafty but the fireplace and large supply of cut wood on the porch kept us warm.

Absolutely love this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Every detail of the "Cozy Cabin" was perfect! We enjoyed our stay in the woods on the grounds of the stable so much! The beach is close. The horses added some country charm. We took a trail ride from the stable as well. So much fun. Totally love the stone fireplace in the living room. The home was well stocked and spotless, We will be back as soon as possible!

Such a charming get-away place.

  • 5 of 5

A "Cozy (and spotless) Cabin" is exactly what I found upon entering this property. I was looking for a quiet space to get away for a few weeks and this fit the bill perfectly.

The place was well appointed with everything I needed and I took advantage of the stables and took a ride on one of their great horses. There are some really good restaurants nearby, most notably, Trattoria Tonelli about 15 minutes away in Michigan City

I will definitely be back soon.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Charming and cozy cottage with everything you need for a getaway! Decorated with details that made it feel like a real home and it was immaculate when we arrived. This was our second stay and both times were wonderful. Just over a hour from Chicago but felt like it was worlds away. Situated in a woodsy area directly across from a horse stable. Short drive to the lake for beach walks. Kitchen is fully equipped and close to restaurants and shopping. The owner was easy to reach and helpful when we had questions.

We will definitely be back!
