Reserve Glorious Days and Nights Near the Beach at Lake Michigan
About Rebecca Conway
Rebecca and her husband, Bill met when they were both in the sixth grade talent show at New Buffalo Elementary School. They wonder--since they were in the same class starting in kindergarten--why it took them so long! After college, both moved away from the area but, after reconnecting, getting married, and birthing two baby girls, they were quick to return "home" in order to give their girls the same advantages they had growing up. It is true--every member of the Conway family knows he or she is fortunate to live in a one-stoplight town on a big lake with small town advantages and big city opportunities. The family resides just a few houses down from Rebecca's family home and enjoys sharing the Storybook Cottage with others.

Family get away!
The story book cottage was just as advertised. Our family of four slept perfectly. The kitchen had everything we needed. The neighborhood had lots of full grown trees and pretty for an early morning walk. The cottage was very close to Union Piers dog park - which we used every day!
The cottage was very close to down town and resturants were within walking distance.
We would stay at the cottage again.
Save Time For The Front Porch!
Words cannot describe just how amazing it is to relax on the front porch, we felt hidden away with all the beautiful trees, landscaping, and sounds of running water from the outdoor fountain. If the porch were screened in to protect from mosquitos at night we might have even fallen asleep outside because it's so peaceful. Rebecca was very accommodating with the additional requests we had since we were traveling with a baby. There were plenty of towels and blankets, though we weren't completely sure where to place everything when cleaning up at the end of our stay. There was a laundry basket in a closet so we removed the items it was holding and placed our dirty towels and sheets in there at the end of our stay. Kitchen is well stocked with all the basic cooking equipment and tools so making meals was very easy. We brought our own ground coffee for the coffee maker but there was instant coffee in the fridge. The cottage is a nice short walk to everything but if going to the beach, especially if you have kids and lots of beach stuff, plan on driving and paying the $12 parking fee because it's an uphill walk back to the house. Great place, we'd all stay here again!
The property is just adorable. It has everything you need and is in a great location. New Buffalo is a beautiful town with charming wineries, good restaurants, and of course the gorgeous beaches. Rebecca, the owner, was so very nice and she gave us great advice as to what to see and do in Harbor Country. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do as much as we would like because our stay was short, but we crammed a lot in and still had time to relax. 🤗�
New Buffalo Cottage
Very cute house, fully stocked. Stayed there with one child and it was plenty of space.
Great guests. So glad your family enjoyed your time, Jen. Thanks for allowing us to be part of your story.
Girls trip 2019
The place was exactly as like the pictures. I would say the location is a little outside of most people's walk zone so the provided bikes were great. As far as the house the queen beds are comfortable and couch adequate for sleeping. All furnishing are Victorian like the home.
The front porch is absolutely the best place for friends and family ro hang out. I love the new firepit.
As far as the owner she was very responsive and gave you a lot of really nice extras. Thank you very much for making the trip wonderful.
I'm glad you were pleased with the Storybook Cottage and that you and your friends had a good time. Thanks, also, for taking care of the cottage as if were your own. Hope you'll feel free to return in the future. You are always welcome (and, in answer to your question, there are still a few August 2019 dates left).
