New Buffalo townhome description

Escape to our lovely home in a charming and exclusive beachfront community on the sandy and secluded shores of Lake Michigan. Enjoy a large and well equipped tri-level home with 4 bedrooms & 3.5 baths. The neighborhood association's private beach and cabana has bathrooms, kitchen, outdoor shower and lake/sunset viewing decks. Enjoy the heated pool, tennis/basketball courts, forest trails and other association amenities.

Our forested location is private and serene yet close to all that New Buffalo and the broader Harbor Country area has to offer (wineries, world class golf, Warren/Indiana Dunes, Antiquing, Four Winds Casino, orchards, farmers markets, biking, hiking, boating).

Only 70 miles from Chicago, about 3 hours from Ann Arbor/Detroit and just 30 miles from ND/South Bend. Amtrak now runs from New Buffalo to Chicago!

This is a unique rental home and beachside community. The association and rental rules must be followed and respected to fully enjoy and preserve its character for all its members.
Two vehicle parking passes are available for our rental guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Our family grew up in the Chicago area, and though some have moved away, the 'Beach House' has remained our special family escape and place to gather and stay connected to nature and each other. Located just off of I-94, taking Michigan's Exit 1, our pristine, forested private beach community is situated between New Buffalo's beautiful restaurant and shopping district and Grand Beach. The fresh air, caressing waters, sand in the toes and abundant foliage refreshes and revitalizes. With a safe and secluded 'resort' feel, it has been a magical place for our children who treasure time spent here, and a highly relaxing antidote to the rigors of life in the 'real world'. We look forward to sharing the wonders and enjoyment this special retreat has provided us. Its wonderful to know others will create special memories and traditions of their own!

Why the Owner Chose New Buffalo:
Nestled in a private beach community on the pristine shores of Lake Michigan and a short distance from quaint downtown New Buffalo, this well-appointed abode is hidden away in a quiet dune-land forest. You will enjoy your own private beach retreat -- a short drive from the 'big city' yet feels worlds away! Plus, you are in the heart of all the fun and excitement that New Buffalo and Harbor Country offers. There is so much to do and explore - we never want to leave!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Watch the sunset on the bluffs above the majestic waters of Lake Michigan. Chase butterflies, search for beach fossils and share campfire stories and s'mores on the beach. Learn to surf, skim, swim, kayak or sail. Read a book on the pool deck and fall asleep! Take long walks through the forest paths and down the beach. Dine at Stray Dog, Casey's, Redamak's, Bentwood, Rosie's, Oinks and many other local favorites. Barney's for fresh food and groceries. This beach house is a short stroll to both the heated pool and the beach. The three-level house with a great lay-out provides ample privacy and places for both children and adults to enjoy. The screened back porch with soothing breezes is an all-time favorite place to relax. Caution: the warm wooden kitchen table is conducive to chatting and playing cards late into the night. Attending a Notre Dame game? This is an ideal spot for a long fall weekend - tree colors and fall harvests! Start your day with a beach jog and end with a fire pit -- you fill in the middle! Revel in joyful family time in this cheerful, relaxing place.
