Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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'!

Why the Owner 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
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!
