"My husband, our 3 kids and our dog just ended a wonderful and relaxing stay at Cherry Beach Cottage this morning. The amenities within the cottage are excellent. We had almost all of our meals at the cottage, and didn't need to go out to buy any utensils, dishes, cups or cookware as everything was provided. Sarah, the owner, is very diligent on this count -- she called me all the way from the west coast to ensure we had enough toilet paper! The beds were all extremely comfortable, the AC was great (amidst very hot and humid weather), the hot tub was fabulous, and the decor was very vintage and adorable. Clearly, a lot of love goes into keeping this cottage well-maintained. The wooded views from the back of the house are lovely and tranquil, and it is just a 2 minute walk to a very nice beach. FYI -- while the owner will consider rentals with pets, nearby Cherry Beach does not allow dogs (which we knew before arriving). However, Warren Dunes State Park is just a 10 minute drive, and it does have a great dog beach that we enjoyed earlier today. We also had a goodt time walking around downtown New Buffalo, just 10 minutes away, which has some interesting shops, good (but slightly pricey) kayaking opportunities at Galien's, and great ice cream at Nancy's. The cottage is also very close to a some good restaurants, including Luisa's Cafe/Swedish Bakery (packed on Sunday mornings and with superb pastries) and The Blue Plate Diner. We would definitely stay at Cherry Beach Cottage again, and highly recommend it to others."
