Don't forget to satisfy your sweet tooth with and an 'OINK! OINK!' at the famous ice cream parlor OINKS! Would you rather indulge in fudge? Walk down the street to Chocolate factory and watch the sunset.

Feeling lucky? visit the 4 WINDS CASINO three miles away, worried about a babysitter? NO FUSS the casino provides a daycare.

.....Or if you feel like being pampered visit one of the many spas of New Buffalo. Allow yourself to sit back, relax, and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.....

What an amazing warm retreat. These owners did not forget a touch. From the cozy king master suite to the cute family sitting area. Everything you need to make this a romantic retreat or a family's get together. Worth the price. They have every amenity you need from martini glasses to olive oil to high line sheets.

Greedy greedy liar of an owner! Renter beware!!!

  • 1 of 5

Me and two of my girlfriends plan a mommy getaway to Michigan once a year. We chose this place because the pictures looked cute, location, and price. Upon arriving to the unit we noticed as soon as we walked into the unit it smelled horribly of mildew and possibly some kind of water damage. We walked into a spider web as soon as we walked through the door. As someone with horrific allergies I explained to her that I would not be able to stay in the unit. She agreed to refund our money so we booked a room at a hotel downtown. Well, a year later and she still hasn't refunded our money. After many phone calls and talking with her voicemail she did send an email to explain why she actually wasn't going to refund our money....she had changed her mind. Bad bad egg!!!!

Owner's Response: To whom it may concern. This guest made a reservation and then cancelled during arrival.Guest contacted me and I drove out to the cottage. Mind you its a 2 hour drive. Out of concern and respect wanted to see what the problem was. If any ? I entered the cottage there as No smell and or odor. Our cleaning service cleans from top to bottom. As i was driving up to the cottage out of respect called my good friend at the new local resort to accommodate them if there was a so called problem I would like their charge of their room to me.. When I arrived to the cottage and noticed there was nothing wrong and that they were meeting more guests That was the true reason the did not want to stay However as a respectful owner . I called her back to let her know she would be refunded her full amount paid upfront which I did not even legally have to do. But as a kind gesture I did anyway. The only thing I kept was their security deposit. We have a 30 day cancellation . Exceptions are job loss.,sickness.. This guest just decided the hour of check in she wanted to stay with her other girlfriends somewhere else. This was a false reservation thats why it took them until the last day prior to check in to fax me back the reservation contract. Savvy renter you can try and take advantage of someone else not a family that is running a great summer getaway. To my new guests you are more than welcome to talk to previous guests that come back yearly to make memories. <3

Best place to stay in New Buffalo

  • 5 of 5

Relaxation Station was the best place to stay for our group of 6 girls! The owner was so easy to communicate with and work with to secure this rental! The location is great and the rental was so clean and tidy! Things were super easy to find and set up each night to go to sleep.

Our group of girls can't wait to come back and we are ready to plan our next trip! We are so thankful the owner and easy she made planning this trip!

Perfectly acceptable for a weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Me and 5 other girls recently had a weekend getaway to New Buffalo for my friend's bachelorette party and we stayed at the Relaxation Station. We took the amtrak in from Chicgao, which was super easy.

The place had everything we needed--beds (we didn't realize until the last night that there is a second twin mattress underneath the bed in the extra bedroom), refrigerator, bathroom, shower--as well as some added bonuses--a pool! There are plenty of kitchen appliances (coffee maker, toaster, etc) and plenty of towels for both the shower and pool. The blankets were pretty light (which worked for us since it was hot outside) but if you like heavier blankets, I recommend bringing them with you.

The unit was very clean and presentable upon arrival. It was a little crowded as there is a piece of furniture covering every inch of the walls in the living room (the listing photos are very accurate and show you this.) We had some trouble rolling our suitcases through and had to move stuff out of the way. There are also a ton of knick-knacks everywhere but that's not really a problem, just something you will notice.

We did not have a car with us so we walked everywhere, and it was a bit of a walk to the main drag in town (about 15 minutes) but not too bad since the weather was nice. The first night we walked to Casey's and had dinner there and then headed over to the Stray Dog for the rest of the night. The next day, we had a driver pick us up in a nice SUV and take us around to some of the wineries on the southwest Michigan wine trail. Gravity was our favorite winery. We had a lovely time.

Linda was very helpful in preparation for the trip. She called a few times to make sure she had all of my information and answered the many questions I had for her. The keys were mailed to me well in advance of the trip. Overall, this place was great and the price was very reasonable!

Quick 3 day Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I recently enjoyed 3 days of relaxing by the pool, beach, shopping and eating out at this property. I'd say it was exactly as depicted in the photos and description. All was very clean and very well maintained -- any questions we had ( even an accidental call!) was quickly responded to by the owner. It was perfect for the 2 of us, and the perfect distance from the pool -- close enough to go back and forth in a few steps, yet not right within hearing of all the kids having fun.

I'd definitely recommend The Stray Dog, Oinks, and Brewster's Italian restaurants, and enjoying the beach at sunset. We were a little disappointed about the $10 public beach parking charge, but by 8 pm parking was free, so all was good .

Only had 1 question - listing said beach was 6 blocks away across the bridge. Over Whittaker Street bridge it was closer to 10 or 11 blocks. Was there a closer beach access that we missed? Really didn't matter , we loved our stay, and would recommend it to friends. Thanks Linda, for a sweet retreat!

Owner's Response: Thank you for all your positive energy!!! And I am so sorry you paid a fee at the beach.. We have a beach access pass above the pool key in the cottage. I am so so happy you were able to make memories and would love to have you stay with us again. Sincerely, Linda Relaxation Station

What a beautiful cozy getaway. An all girls weekend that will be remembered for a life time. Relaxation stations accommodations were so affordable. New buffalo is a special town and it was kinda nice being a few blocks away from the center yet so close. My friends and I had so much fun especially playing the guessture game provided when one of the days rain, the pool was great after a day at the beach to take a dip and refresh your self and totally recommend grabbing a taco from the little Mexican joint across the street and enjoying it poolside. Whoever decorated the place sure has a hand for interior design. Great job relaxation station and thank you for a fantastic girls weekend the casino was a blast. Will definitely be making the relaxation station our yearly summer girls getaway see u next year!

Thank you for letting us rent out the Relaxation Station in August. The few days there were great and the kids especially enjoyed making friends with some of the other vacationers at the other rentals nearby. We especially enjoyed the pool!! We visited the Warren Dunes that were about 25 minutes away and swam at the wonderful and clean beach there. The sunset at the local beach was one to admire for sure! We cannot thank you enough for giving us those few days (it is all we had as far as time off from work) to enjoy with our children. The owner was also always available by phone whenever we had a question! Have a blessed autumn and know our kids are still quite upset we had to leave there (they want to live there forever). :-)
