Be advised...A LOT of train noise

  • 3 of 5

This property sits about six feet from railroad tracks used by Amtrak, and a crossing is just down the road. The house has no level of soundproofing so you hear clearly every (loud) whistle, and the entire house shakes with each passing. There are maybe five trains per day and night -- not excessive but certainly an annoyance. I somehow missed this fact before booking and would have selected another property because our group was traveling with an infant and a toddler, both of whom were woken during naps and at night.

Other than this, the house was adequate. It is newer and well appointed. The size and four bedrooms were fantastic and hard to find elsewhere. The check out procedures were stricter than other VRBOs I've rented and thus more time consuming. Overall, if the noise isn't a deal breaker then this property is worth a look.

Beautiful and well cared for home with all the amenities for a great stay away from home. The location is perfect for a short walk to all the great offerings of New Buffalo. We look forward to renting again for our next family weekend!

Lewis party

  • 5 of 5

Our annual trip to New Buffalo. Love the area.

This is the first time we have stayed in this house and absolutely loved everything.

So clean and spacious. Beautifully decorated. I cannot say enough about it.

We have found our favorite place and plan to return to this house.

Thank you Jennifer. Working with the owner was a pleasure. She answered all of my questions and more.

I will be in touch to book again.

Above and Beyond

  • 5 of 5

It was a girls trip for college girls that hadn't seen each other in years. We usually go to Chicago, but decided on New Buffalo since I visted there last summer with my In-laws. This home was so clean and tastefully decorated. We had more space than we needed and loved every inch of this property. Very close to restaurants, boutiques, the beach and much more. You won't be disappointed...We can't wait to book it again next year.
