About Dan Buie

Although we currently live in the Chicago area, we both grew up near the beach in Southern California. We have three daughters, twins 15 years old and a 14 year old. Our family loves spending time outdoors, especially near the water. When we first discovered New Buffalo we fell in love with the area because it reminded us so much of beach towns back home, only less hectic and more low key. Our family now spends most of our free time at our New Buffalo 'Beach House'!

Dan Buie purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Dan Buie chose New Buffalo

With it's wide sandy beach and large boat marina, New Buffalo is the crown jewel of 'Harbor Country' in Southwest Michigan. It's less than an hour and a half from our primary home in the western suburbs of Chicago, yet feels like we're so much further away.

What makes this townhome unique

We really enjoy being able to walk to everything...beach, pool, marina, restaurants, shops and so much more. In fact, quite often once we arrive and park the car it's not driven again until we leave!

A great escape!

  • 5 of 5

We went for a girls weekend and were sad to leave! The owners could not have been more friendly and accommodating! The location is perfect as we hardly had to drive anywhere! We were steps away from shopping, restaurants, bars and close to the beach! The house was clean, adorably decorated and the beds were quite comfy! We enjoyed the breeze on the balconies and the fireplace at night. We will be coming back here for sure!

This property was perfect for a long weekend with our family & grandparents! We loved the layout of the townhouse as well as the outdoor space to enjoy the beautiful weather & views!
