There is plenty of seating outside with a large gas grill, so that those summer days can be spent lounging and relaxing with friends and family. Don't worry parents, the pool is secured by gates, so that the little ones can't get in. The yard is also fenced. Enjoy relaxing and roasting marshmallows around the fire pit. Also included are all the modern amenities including 4 Plus TV's in the home all with Cable. Wireless internet also included.


Bedroom #1 located on the upper level has a queen, bedroom #2 located on the upper level has two twins, bedroom #3 located on the upper level has a queen.

There is a gorgeous fireplace in the inside for those cold fall and winter nights where you want to snuggle up and there is an extra living space downstairs with an entertainment center if the adults want to sit upstairs and the little ones can watch a movie downstairs. The home is located in a nice neighborhood that is walking distance to many of the activities in town.

New Buffalo is the kind of town that lets you get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city without being a million miles away. It is only an hour out of Chicago and 3 hrs from Detroit. You are in a harbor town where the seagulls and the nightly sunsets are the best show in town. There are many activities nearby and walking in and out of the shops is one of the many fun things to do. There is more restaurants in a 10 mile radius than you might find in a large city.

Love the location

  • 5 of 5

I just came home from renting this home and the home next door. Rental 176333. We had a group of twenty people for a family reunion. Both homes had heated pools which worked great for our family. The older kids in one pool and the parents and the young ones in the other pool. Both homes had firepits which was great to cook Smores at night. The beach access is extremely close. We also got a lot of use out of the park a couple doors away. The kids had a baseball game it was great. We all loved that we could walk to town to enjoy ice cream at night. I would highly recommend these two homes for large families. Both homes were fully equipped and very nice in the inside. The other great thing was Lake Michigan was warm enough to jump in. At night the hot tub and the heated pools are great.

Best Easter with Family!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family just got home from a vacation in New Buffalo. There were 14 of us and this home was great. The weather turned out to be great we had a great time with the firepit and the hot tub at night. The home was very equipped for the Easter dinner and had enough seating for all of us. It was great to have two common areas so the adults could watch the Notre Dame game and the kids could watch their movies. Already booked Easter for next year. Would totally recommend this home to Family/Friends and even people I dont know.

Summer Fun! We had an amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in New Buffalo. The weather was great, we picked the perfect week to be in Michigan. The pool area was great. When we arrived the pool was set at 80 degrees we called the management company and asked if we could turn the heat up a little bit. The said "yes", just please do not put it over 85 as it can ruin the liner. The beach that is located across the street from the home was not as big as it was last year. This was not a concern as the management company left us a pass for the public beach, but we found ourselves using the beach across the street. We also love the pool area, so the beach was primarily used for Sunsets. I have read the comments of the renters the week before us and I am shocked. There are no bugs in the home, but yes at night if you leave doors open the bugs will come in. The owner of the home has updated many things in the home since last year. Including they redid all the hardwood floors. Which looks very nice. They bought a new front room couch and carpet. The hot tub is also new which was very nice on the cooler nights. Overall our children and grandchildren love the home. There are numerous toys for the pool and also a bon fire pit in the back yard. We will be back next year. This home is great if you like being in New Buffalo you are close to everything, we do not drive while we are there. I would highly recommend this house, it really works well with our family.

Would not recommend this house to a stranger.

  • 1 of 5

I just arrived home from what I expected to be a great trip to a quaint Michigan town. The town and public beach were nice and fun to explore. Unfortunately, the house quite honestly did not even come close to meeting my expectations.

I arrived in New Buffalo on July 5th for a week of summer fun with my family and in-laws. Unfortunately, I was ready to cancel the reservation after the first night. No warm pool waters or s'mores kit were waiting for us. My four-year-old did, however, find a butane lighter refill and beer can under the bunk bed. Thank goodness he brought the item directly to us. This house would better fit a bachelor party or frat get away (if they could afford it).

What bothers me the most is that I should have known better. I looked at the pictures and reviews and just assumed the other tenants were picky or snooty. I was wrong! I didn't even feel comfortable taking my shoes off in the house because the carpets and rugs were so stained. Bugs were all over the place, but at least they had well equipped the home with fly swatters. The beds were squeaky, and the bedding was shabby. I couldn't wait to get back home and get a good nights sleep. My 8 year-old couldn't believe that we were even going to stay the night.

I will agree that they have plenty of bedrooms and sitting place. The outdoor sitting and dining area worked well for our large party although I expected those bonuses for the price we paid. We chose this house for that reason. We primarily chose it for the pool though. Unfortunately, I was the only adult that would get in. Management would not allow the pool temperature to go above 80 degrees which is fairly cold. The "private" beach access is subpar at best. More like a rock collection and sand pit filled with several other families and excessive smokers and lake debris.

The house had light fixtures that were broken, carpets stained, air vents covered with cardboard, and pieces of the furniture were broken.

I would strongly recommend that you do not stay at this location. I think we would have enjoyed our vacation far more in another location with a clean, comfortable, and safe house. I acknowledge that management will have the opportunity to respond to this review, but our family will not be returning to this house for future vacations.

Family of 10 Get Together

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay over a long Labor Day weekend! This home is so close to the private beach!

Pool and hot tub were enjoyed by all! Location is perfect for walking to downtown New Buffalo.There was plenty of room for all to spread out comfortably. We appreciated the large dining table that seated our whole family. The fenced in yard is a real plus if you have young children. When we experienced a small problem, management sent a repairman in a timely manner to assist us. Although not the fanciest of homes, it was quite comfortable, homey, and very family friendly!

Great time love the area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Thank you so much. It was nice to let kids run around the yard that was fenced in. The home was very kid friendly. Hopefully we will make it up in the fall. Kids loved the pool it was 87 degrees. It was a little chilly outside but the pool was used the entire time. We also enjoyed the smore's kit left by the management company.
