              • We are often asked about our proximity to the Amtrak rail. This has never been an issue for any of our guests. The latest train departs at 10:20 pm from the New Buffalo depot and the earliest train that comes through town is during the 9 o'clock hour. To ensure the most comfortable stay, we have added white noise machines in each bedroom for the rental season, although we have never had any complaints from our guests, we want to ensure the utmost satisfaction for everyone who stays at our home....moreless

              Location

              Nearest Train
              Amtrak
              0.5 Miles
              Nearest Beach
              New Buffalo Lakefront Park & Beach

              We are a very short walk from downtown New Buffalo and the beach as well as the Amtrak station. If you plan a trip into Chicago, be sure to book your tickets on the Amtrak well in advance as it does sell out quickly in the summer.

              Every visit in New Buffalo requires a trip to the Stray Dog (under reconstruction after the 2012 fire - completion expected in May 2013), as well as Oinks Dutch Treat ice cream shop. For an adult dinner, we strongly recommend the Brentwood Tavern (make reservations).

              For outdoor activities other than the public beach, we recommend renting kayaks at the Galien River on Red Arrow Highway, hiking at the dunes or if you have younger kids check out the county water park and playground also on Red Arrow.

              If you are up for shopping, it is as easy as strolling into downtown New Buffalo! There are many wonderful shops in town. If you are up for a short trip in the car, head to Michigan City for the outlets or head out on Red Arrow for antiques and other quaint shops.

              Additional recommendations are available in our guest book.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Our family is a collection of special blessings, made up of 7 kids, our sister and her 4 sons...14 of us in all. Thus why we needed this home and share this home with families/groups as special as ours.

              Why the Owner Chose New Buffalo:
              We loved New Buffalo so much that we bought this incredible home to share with others! Our goal is to rent to quality families and groups looking for memories that will last a lifetime. In addition, we are committed to providing the house for nonprofit organizations 20 times per year as a blessing for those less fortunate. Each family and group that rent are part of giving back to those less fortunate. Thank you!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Beautiful design with amazing access to New Buffalo's quaint downtown, the beach, and the AMTRAK for a trip into Chicago. New Buffalo is not a tourist destination...more like your 2nd hometown with friendly people, great food, and relaxing luxury. New Buffalo is often referred to as The Hamptons of Chicago because of the weekend getaways by Chicago families. If you like a fun night out...2 casinos are within miles and the Stray Dog is always filled with action.
