New Buffalo house description

2011 constructed 4-bedroom home in the woods of Camp Buffalo Cottages. Designed and built as a rental property with all the amenities for family entertainment or a romantic getaway. You'll enjoy our two floors of fully-furnished, four-season porches that overlook the woods and a landscaped, private ravine. The wooded backyard includes a large firepit for roasting marshmallows or just snuggling with loved ones. The lower deck has a built-in hot tub and the upper deck a gas BBQ for year-round cookouts.

And just wait until you see the charming interior! You will not find a rental property in Harbor Country furnished and decorated more beautifully or warmly. The main level boasts dramatic vaulted ceilings in the family room and dining room and is accented with rustic cypress columns and trusses -- think luxury mountain lodge. The stone fireplace in the corner of the family room can also be viewed from the adjoining dining room and gourmet kitchen. The four bedrooms include two beautiful master suites, one on each level, each with majestic queen beds. Another of the four bedrooms has a bunk bed (bunk over full).

There are all kinds of entertainment features in this home. A whole-house stereo system will allow you to listen to multiple sources (Cable TV, DVD, iPod or radio) in different rooms at the same time, including the porches and decks. Large flatscreen TVs with Blu-Ray/DVD will be found in the family room, both master suites and the game room. Oh, yes, the game room... The game room is furnished with matching rustic log game furniture including a large card game table, foosball table, dart board, and pub table for checkers and chess. And for the gamers in the family, there is a Wii with four game controllers and several games for both kids and adults alike.

Camp Buffalo is an intimate community of 19 lodge-style homes constructed with logs and stone exteriors that fit well into the secluded woods. You will enjoy a community pool and clubhouse that are shared only by residents and renters. The house is only a short, 15-minute walk to downtown New Buffalo and even less to the Oselka City Park with baseball fields, tennis courts and a large playground for the kids. The public New Buffalo Beach is less than a mile away, and has parking for a small daily fee. Golfing, boating, jet-skiing, the Four Winds Casino, apple picking and a train museum are all a short drive away.

                    My family recently stayed here and the lodge was absolutely beautiful. This was by far the nicest place we have ever rented and we've been renting houses on Lake Michigan for several years. Everything was decorated so well, and was all the way top notch. They definitely put a lot of attention into every detail. The kitchen was well stocked and we had plenty of room to cook and dine. The screened in porches were so nice and all the bedrooms were perfectly sized as well as the bathrooms. The hot tub was wonderful and the downstairs game room and upstairs living room gave us plenty of room to spend time together. I would recommend this place to anyone who appreciates someone putting a lot of "heart and soul" into a vacation rental.

                    We had four families staying and some visitors. Accommodations were great. We enjoyed the house and being in it. The porches were a plus. Pool and clubhouse great. Although we did not use them much they were very well taken care of. We highly recommend this house.

                    We go on an annual Mom's Weekend every January and this home is our favorite by far! The interior decorating is impeccable, the games room and porches are amazing, and the coveted hot tub is our most favorite feature to share laughs, wine, and a much needed soak, after a long walk on the beach within walking distance, while gazing at the beautiful snow covered woods. We will return here every January! Thanks Waya Rentals...your rentals are top notch by far!

                    I had wanted a beach area vacation that was a day's drive for the 5 of us in KS as well as the other 4 in Chicago. We couldn't have found anything more perfect. Room to spread out, top of the line furnishings and close proximity to the water, parks, shopping and dining. As the other reviewers raved, the mattresses were incredible! The only things I would change are ----- picking a cooler week!!! and a lock on the inside of the front door (4-year old)!

                    Beautiful home and furnishings, convenient location, clean, comfortable -- no negatives to this property! Our family of six adults and four children spent a week here and had plenty of room inside, as well as enjoying all of the things outdoors -- fire pit, pool/clubhouse, swing set, etc. The two spacious enclosed porches are outstanding! Would definitely rent again if returning to this area.

                    The house actually looks even better in person than it does in the photos. Everything was very clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The surrounding area was great too. Perfect weekend getaway! We went to a few vineyards and had a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for group vacation. I was also very impressed by Ron from Waya Rentals. I accidentally left something important behind and he offered to ship it back to me, which was very generous!

                    A group of my friends and I rented out the "Lodged in the Trees" property for a weekend in December as a little "reunion" and we couldn't have been more pleased! When you walked in the door, the house was beautifully decorated and even had a Christmas tree and garland for holiday accents. The house was large, but it was a perfect little "home away from home" outside of the city. Plenty of parking, wonderful kitchen for cooking and dining, 4 bathrooms; the surround-sound was great for adding a little musical fun to the weekend and to watch sports games! Also, the property management was extremely easy to deal with and accommodating - I couldn't give this a better review!

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About: Husband and wife both working in professional services and investors in multiple luxury vacation rental properties.

                  Why New Buffalo:
                  We had been looking for a rental property in Michigan's Harbor Country for quite some time, actually planning to buy an existing home. When we found Camp Buffalo, we knew we just had to be there. The decision to build a new house there was a quick one, as Camp Buffalo offered an experience for our renters and our family that no other property in the area could match. The feeling of seclusion on this wooded property, while being so close to many of the surrounding amenities was like nothing else we had seen. Just minutes a few minutes off Exit 1 on I-94 in Michigan, it was as close to our home in the Chicago area as you could be in Michigan. New Buffalo is a charming town and the public beach there is one of the best in the Harbor Country area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  'Lodged in the Trees' describes two of the features of this property we love most... 1) The whole Camp Buffalo community, the clubhouse and our house were designed to feel like a mountain lodge with logs, stone and other rustic charms. 2) The tranquility of the surrounding wooded property transports us to relaxation as soon as we pull into the long winding private driveway to our house. We love being lodged in the trees and our guests do, too!
