Our 5th year here and our kids keep asking to come back!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage feels like our "home away from home" since we've been coming here for several years. We have never been disappointed with renting from Howard. The house is clean, comfortable and spacious for our family of six. We love the location to downtown and to the beach. There are several restaurants within walking distance. The addition of the swimming pool is a plus and we love using the bikes to explore around town. Howard has always been quick to address any concerns we may have during our stay. I would highly recommend renting this cottage to anyone who is looking to rent in New Buffalo. You won't be disappointed...but you need to reserve early because it books up fast!

Quality,quality,quality!

  • 5 of 5

Just to piggyback on to the other great reviews, it was definitely a high-quality rental. They said that beach towels would be furnished, but I worried they wouldn't be many and they would be threadbare . It was just the opposite. Approximately 10 fluffy large beach towels were waiting for us in the mud room. They said three bikes would be furnished and I was afraid they would be clunkers. The bikes were great. We packed our own beach chairs assuming the ones furnished would not be up to par. We left our chairs in the trunk and used the lovely backpack chairs that were supplied for us in the garage.

If you choose to rent this house, you won't be disappointed.

Best Father's Day week!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we had the BEST time here!! We came to the area for a wedding and decided to make a family vacation out of it. After lots of searching on VRBO this house seemed liked the best option for the 3 different generations that were traveling together. And it did not disappoint! The set up of the house is great for all ages. We had grandparents, toddlers, a baby, a dog...and we all fit and had our own space. The 3 different levels of this house made it great for our group. The house had everything in it we could possibly want and Howard answered immediately to my email when I couldn't find the garbage can (minor detail but he got it taken care of ASAP). Not only was the house perfect but so is New Buffalo. The neighborhood is quiet and we walked to town or the beach every day. We loved The Stray Dog, Oink's, David's Deli and Coffee and the Terrace. Oh and another highlight for my 2.5 year old boy and his 4 year old cousin was the pool. It was clean, warm and almost always empty! We spent a lot of time there, at the beach and on the front porch. We are already planning a trip back! Thank you Howard for sharing your lovely home with us, we had a truly memorable family vacation!!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is very accommodating for our family of kids and grandkis, close to town and the beach. Enough room on various levels for some privacy, plenty of shower/bathroom space and lots of towels/beach towels for the week. We try to leave it cleaner than when we arrived, treating it as our home away from home.

Great New Buffalo location

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and plenty of space for extended family or group of adults. We walked to the grocery store, Downtown shopping, the beach, the pizza place and the Mexican restaurant. We also road bikes from the house to the 20 mile New Buffalo Trail which goes to Three Oaks and a great coffee shop. And of course the heated pool sealed the deal for the young children in our group. Thanks Howard for being such a great host.
