Perfect for Two Families!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fall weekend at this great rental with two families - 4 adults, 3 kids (4 yr olds). The outdoor property was spacious - kids loved the swing set. Secluded enough for some quiet but close to everything in New Buffalo. The house itself was clean, modern, and bright. The back sunroom is amazing! Would come back in a heartbeat.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beach Bum New Buffalo was a perfect spot for our family reunion. The location is ideal; easy walk to the small beach and the town. The house is very spacious. It is well equipped with towels, kitchen utensils, etc. We especially enjoyed the outdoor grill and back yard. The large picnic table on the spacious enclosed porch was very useful. We highly recommend Beach Bum and would use it again on a future visit to New Buffalo.

Beach Bum

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Wished it had been warmer as the beach was pretty chilly for the grandkids. Beach Bum met our needs and was very clean when we arrived. Dealing with Mr. Martin was easy and he was readily available if anything arose, which it did not.

Excellent property to enjoy all New Buffalo has to offer

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this property. It looked exactly like the photos and had all the comforts of home. We had 8-9 people and had plenty of room to relax and sleep. The home is less than a block from the lake and a short drive or walk to the downtown area. The property was very clean and comfortable to stay in. The owners were very easy to work with and I would recommend this property to anyone!
