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.

A wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was an ideal place for our Lake Michigan vacation. The views from the sun room, living/family room and the master bedroom were outstanding and relaxing. Our family of 7 adults and one child was very comfortable and my adult children enjoyed being in the downstairs bedrooms in close proximity to each other. A couple of minor issues that came up during our stay were quickly answered and remedied by the very gracious homeowner. Although beach access to Lake Michigan near the home was closed, there are several very nice beach areas nearby. I would certainly recommend this property.

Grand Beach Home

  • 4 of 5

This property was excellent accommodation for our family, and Ying was very helpful in making sure all went well. The arrangement is perfect with nice bedrooms on the first floor and gathering and eating spaces above with incredible views of the lake. The community is a lot of fun and it was easy getting on the golf and tennis courts without large crowds. Had to go a little further to get to the beach with the high water (15 minute walk or short drive to drop off kids and beach stuff), but the Oak street beach offered lots of sand and room to settle in each day. We had a great time.

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.
