About Owner/Property Manager

We are Chicago natives who moved to Michigan in 1991. The property has been in our family since the early 1900's. I have spent my summers growing up staying in our summer only cottage. This ranch style house was built in 2003 as a retirement home for my parents and we have since bought it to continue the tradition of spending quality family time in southwestern Michigan.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Southwest Michigan

This home offers year round protection from the weather with a quiet feel of the woods to take a break from the fun in the sun on the beach. If the weather doesn't cooperate, there is plenty of activities to do in the Harbor Country area for all ages.

What makes this house unique

The biggest draw is the beach. Lake Michigan beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world. With no salt, clean fine sand, no sea weed or sea creatures to interfere with swimming, sandcastles, sports or just relaxing and watching the sun set.

Very nice

The walk to the beach was short, and the property was well kept and clean inside.

Everyone had a wonderful time.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house full of amenities and very well cared for. Short drive to New Buffalo shopping and restaurants (Stray Dog!), Michigan City Lighthouse, or Warren Dunes. We loved the air hockey table and the kids are playing cards as I type. The screened in porch is great and the sectional fit our family of 5 quite comfortably!

I'm so glad we found this gem because we will be back for sure! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience here for our 10-friend getaway. The house was very spacious and clean. Even with 10 people, everyone had their own space. The homeowners were very responsive and made sure all of our questions were answered before the stay. We would DEFINITELY stay here again.

Well-equipped and very comfortable. Lots of sleeping space for our family of 8.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay over the New Year's weekend. The house was very clean and spacious enough for us to accommodate our 4 college-age kids plus 2 friends. The game tables in the basement were great! We brought lots of games with us, but there were also many in the home. The kitchen is nicely equipped as we cooked most meals in. The beach access is across and down the street a short way. Just a short driving distance into New Buffalo is a grocery and small boutiques. Three Oaks had a unique distillery. The owners were welcoming and available for any questions. We would stay again!
