About the property

Quiet, relaxing getaway right in town. Walk to the beach, restaurants & shopping

When vacationers have vanity plates created with your town's zip code or exit numbers on them, you know you've discovered a special place. New Buffalo and the surrounding Harbor Country area is that kind of place. You'll feel worlds away from wherever you've arrived. Beaches, quaint antique shops, wineries, breweries, nature parks, bike trails; the list goes on forever. Just come and visit to discover why those Pure Michigan commercials are so alluring. They're not making that stuff up.

You'll immediately enjoy the way this space feels. Craftsman style throughout. Wood floors, wood beams, 3,500 ft of wood trim. Built for casual relaxation. Two bedrooms with a comfy queen bed in each. The top floor is a master suite. Two full baths to help you get ready to hit the town. There's a plasma TV, DVD player and a fully equipped kitchen for those times when you just feel like staying home. There's a wood burning fireplace (w/ gas assist) for cool nights and a fire pit to enjoy outside as well. A covered porch begs you to have your morning coffee outside and the large deck is perfect for cocktails in the evening. Designed to provide indoor AND outdoor comfort. It's all here for you to enjoy...

About Kregg Kiel

I'm native to the area, but spent 20 years in Chicago prior to coming back. I couldn't resist the allure! I like to think of myself as a Cigardener. I really like to garden, but I also like to enjoy the fruit of my efforts by having a cigar and a glass of wine once I'm done for the day. I hope you'll enjoy the property as much as I do...

Kregg Kiel purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Kregg Kiel chose Southwest Michigan

I'm a huge fan of Craftsman-style homes. I drove by 10 years ago and saw the potential of the property. I purchased it in July of 2004 and by May of 2005, my vision was realized. A complete remodel in the Craftsman style. I hope you'll like what I've done.

What makes this bungalow unique

Walking into the home, you'll feel like you've left the hustle and bustle of your life at the door. This home was designed with indoor and outdoor relaxation in mind. You'll see why the moment you arrive...

A Beautiful Craftsman Bungalow In The Center Of Harbor Country…
average rating of 4.875 based on 16 reviews

Perfect location plus warm and cozy accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

We chose this home for a last minute get away and couldn't have been more pleased with both the beautiful home and it's proximity to everything that Harbor County has to offer. Meticulous craftsman remodel. Owner was easy to communicate with and gave us great ideas on what was happening in New Buffalo and surrounding area for our weekend. We'll definitely stay again.

Clean and Comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

We thouroghly enjoyed our stay in the Craftsman Bungalow. The location was perfect. We walked to the beach and to the shops and restaurants. The home was stocked with everything we needed for our stay. Seems as if everything was brand new. Great beds and bedding. Very comfortable. Would not hesitate to book this exact home next time we visit New Buffalo. Thanks Kregg!

Very clean, great location, comfortable beds with feather pillows and high quality sheets, bathrooms are well stocked with nice soap/ lotion, tissue, towels.
