About ying wehrenberg

We are a family of 4. This is our weekend house and we enjoy Grand Beach tremendously. We love to travel and always choose to do that during the summer months. So, we want to share our beautiful house with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why ying wehrenberg chose Southwest Michigan

Unique mix of tree house in the woods and beach house. Literally walk down the steps to the private beach yet also enjoy the peace of the woods atop the dune - best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the house because of the view and secondly for the unique feeling of being in a tree house in the woods while also being at the beach.

New Buffalo is just five minutes by car and a lovely Harbor Country town with plenty of restaurants, galleries, and activities throughout the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The view was beautiful and the home very comfortable... a lovely"

The view is fabulous and the house is very comfortable with a nicely renovated kitchen and baths. The beach in this area is fairly narrow, but a short walk to the north or south allowed for more area to set up 'camp'. This was a very relaxing place to stay with family.

Solitude in the trees

  • 5 of 5

Just what the doctor ordered! Peaceful and relaxing with a Zen-like feel. Perched above the lake and tucked away in the trees this home is a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the sounds of nature while gazing out over beautiful Lake Michigan. The home with all its windows and sky lights has a bright and airy feel but still maintains a cozy comfortable atmosphere with all of the wood and stone finishes that surround the centrally located fireplace. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. They were highly communicative before, during and after our stay. Any questions or issues that we had were handled immediately and never were we made to feel like a nuisance. Wifi was strong and fast. The kitchen was well stocked. Bedrooms were comfortable and quiet. The beach is a nice walk down a picturesque flight of stairs through the woods. If you are looking for a relaxing picturesque place for your family vacation this is it!

What a lovely get-away. The house was clean, and recently remodeled state of the art bathrooms and kitchen. When we arrived we had difficulty with the key box, contacted the owner and immediate response. Everything worked and having the use of the fireplace, grill and laundry facilities was a nice treat. Also, having plenty of stock of the items one uses daily but don't think to bring along such as toilet paper or paper towels was greatly appreciated. The condiments in the fridge and cupboard were nice to have access too. the beach was smaller then expected, but a larger beach was not too far of a walk. After getting home my husband discovered he had left his rings on the kitchen counter. The owners quickly responded and sent the rings back to us. We loved everything about our stay, have all ready recommend and will plan to come back again soon.

Lovely, clean, comfortable home.

  • 4 of 5

Home was very clean, very comfortable, and has great views of the lake. It is close to shops, beaches, and very good restaurants. The nearby train affords a hassle free trip in to Chicago. We stayed here with friends for a week long vacation and enjoyed visiting New Buffalo and other nearby towns. We would definitely recommend this lovely home as a great place to stay. It is in a very quiet area and so easy to get into town. It was pleasant to sit and enjoy the views from the house or the deck. The sunsets on the beach were beautiful. Ying was very prompt in replying to our questions before our visit so we had no problems upon our arrival. We hope to return in the future for another relaxing vacation.

Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

Great overall experience! The property is well maintained and clean. The house is beautiful and the location is private but yet close to the downtown area of New Buffalo. The veiws of the water are fabulous. We enjoyed going into New Buffalo and spending time at the public beach. The beach at the house is just a short walk but we were disappointed that we could not sit on that beach, not wide enough. The playground and tennis courts were great for my son. The owners were great to work with, very accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and I am glad that you enjoyed my house. However, I am so sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the narrow beach at the house. The beach changes from time to time along the lake. Last year it was very wide and this year it is less wide. This year we have been walking about thirty yards to the west where the beach is wider to set up chairs and play. Once again, sorry that it was so narrow during the time you stayed. Hopefully we will have a chance to welcome you back during the time the beach is wider. Regards, Ying
