About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6) - additional 1/5 bath at poolhouse

Say good-bye to your cares and worries … at least for the week. :-) Create Family memories in our 3 bedroom (1 king, 2 queens), 1 bath condo with heated pool. There is also an additional ½ bath in the pool house. Condo includes a fully equipped kitchen and Weber gas grill on deck. It is the perfect get-away for the executive's family. Close to Chicago (70 mi) with daily Amtrak service, but a world apart. Enjoy picking strawberries in the late spring, blueberries in the summer or apples in the fall. Or make it a Notre Dame Football game weekend in the fall. All year long, Lake Michigan Shore’s Wine Trail has over a dozen wineries that have wine tastings.

Consider taking advantage of our mid-week rental and avoid traffic to/from Monday - Friday $660 off-peak or $900 peak. Includes later check-out on Friday. Otherwise we rent by full weeks only - Friday to Friday or Sunday to Sunday.

During the dog days of summer … enjoy walks on the beachfront. Or make it a day at the pool, beach or shopping the boutiques in charming New Buffalo. Sharpen up your tennis game. Take in a sunset. Charter a day of fishing on the lake or Rent a pair of jet skis at Oselka's Snug Harbor Marina. Enjoy Oselka Park’s Rain Garden on a steamy day or visit the skate park. Visit the newly finished look-out tower at the Galien River County Park or take the free shuttle out to Four Winds Casino. In the evening, head to the nearby 49er Drive-In movie theater. With sooooo much to do, you won't want to go back home.

Park your car for the week and enjoy walking to the beach, grocery, fine dining and to most of what the area has to offer. Some of the best restaurants in Harbor Country are just blocks from your summer retreat. Take in Bentwood Restaurant - enjoy Jenny's gourmet cooking and spectacular view of the marina.

About Phil & Ann Mahan

We have been spending weekends in the area since 1998. Our children feel like they grew up in the quaint harbor town of New Buffalo.

Phil & Ann Mahan purchased this condo in 2003

Why Phil & Ann Mahan chose Southwest

One of few vacation rental properties in Harbor Country that allows access to the condo association pool.

What makes this condo unique

Walking distance to Marina, Bentwood and Amtrak. We often park the car when we arrive and don't start the engine again until we need to head back to Chicago. So relaxing, a world apart from city stresses. Downtown New Buffalo has so much to offer walking distance from your Lake Michigan Getaway. Like grab coffee at Joe's in the Marian Grand in the morning and head up to the Resort's roof top to enjoy the view of the marina. Or schedule a wine tasting at Warner Wines. There is a free shuttle to Four Winds Casino if that is more your style. New Buffalo has something for everyone.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lauren was great to work with. She has 3 young children and mentioned as much with her inquiry. We love sharing our condo and pool with young families. We enjoyed hearing from Lauren regarding what they did and feedback on what they loved about our town and our condo. Lauren texted us from the minute she arrived. We enjoyed hearing from her during her stay. From my office in Chicago, her sweet text updates transported me from my day job. I sort took a mental "coffee break" from my work every time I heard from her asking about the places I love. My husband and I lived vicariously through her messages while she was at our place. Her family can come back any time.

A very nice condo, well furnished and decorated nicely in New Buffalo.

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with our stay here. The condo had a great beach decor and was so clean and comfortable. We rode our bikes to the beach most days as it resides on the outskirts of the village. The owners made sure we were able to get into the condo and were in touch with any questions.

Hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5

When we first pulled in to the area, we were a little learey because of the property across the street, but once we started exploring other parts of the area, we felt much better. The condo itself is beautiful, the pics don't do it justice. Ann was very helpful, and everyone we talked to was very friendly.

The first day we did the whole beach experience, and the second we did the park and the sand dunes. There's so much there to enjoy!!!! Would highly recommend!!

The Condo was clean, great location and was perfect for our group of 5. The kitchen was well stocked. Ann was very helpful and attentive. She was quick in her responses and was available via phone when we arrived in case we ran into any difficulty. Thanks so much for letting us stay, we will definitely come back!

The walk to the beach is so charming that most just don't mind... through the marina (4 blocks) over the boat bridge another (4 blocks) at that point you see the lake in front of you although you have a few more blocks to walk. But, there is ample parking at the beach for $10 dollars a day. A lot of people choose add just a little time and/or distance to the trip and grab a bite at Nancy's (Whittaker and Mechanic). They have awesome fresh strawberry shakes and/or pick up picnic goods at Barney's (where everyone LOVES their fried chicken). The public beach allows coolers on the beach but, no glass please.

When we first came to the area, we made it a point to catch the sunset every evening. They are spectacular like the Gulf side of Florida. It is a very basic harbor town, the town people are very friendly. Plan to slow your pace. The area has a lot of its own produce, the closest fruit market is across the parking lot - tell John we say hello. If you plan to 'pick your own', strawberry season ends around memorial day, blueberry is around 4th of July or apple picking in the fall. There is also a farmers market up Red Arrow Highway at Skip's Other Place with local produce every Saturday and Sunday.

Walking distance to fine dining at Bentwood Tavern, The Terrace Room and Pierre Anne's Creperie. Walking distance to family dining at Stray Dog, Casey's Backyard, Michigan Thyme, Rios, Grateful Diner and Rosie's.
