We Didn't Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

After deciding to surprise my sister with a 30th birthday getaway, finding the perfect home to accommodate 4 couples was essential and boy did we find it here! We were able to celebrate her birthday AND she got engaged right in the kitchen in front of her closest friends who drove up from Chicago for a bit to surprise her. The entire weekend was spectacular and Howard and his housekeeper were amazingly attentive during our stay. I look forward to making more annual memories at this beautiful getaway. Thank you Howard for everything! My sister was a happy camper! Lon D.

House is perfectly designed for 6 adults and the location is fantastic - walk to everything!

  • 5 of 5

The house has at least one bedroom and bath on each of the three levels, which made for togetherness with some privacy when desired. With a senior citizen couple, two middle aged adults, and two college age grands for the Thanksgiving weekend, we never felt crowded. Amazing considering the compact size. The kitchen was well equipped and the pool table in the basement gave grandma an opportunity to show her grandson a thing or two. Barney's grocery and liquor is 3 short blocks away and almost a small Whole Foods - with better prices. Throw in a couple of visits to the Stray Dog Bar and Grille, etc. and this house rivals places we've stayed in Santa Fe, et al, for fun and relaxation.

A Great Week with Family

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying here and it was great. Family met here for a fall celebration (instead of traveling at Christmas). The weather cooperated beautifully and we enjoyed walking on beach, exploring new restaurants since our last visit, hiking, wineries, fall festival in Holland, etc. House was welcoming with wine and cookies available and ready earlier than our 'check-in' time. The only thing I would have wanted was a 'heads-up' that work was being done on house while we were it was quite a surprise to walk into upstairs bathroom and see a man on ladder outside the window and our front porch time was limited due to painting!! The construction work being done on new homes close by was the highlight of the trip for my 2 year old grandson who is in love with all kinds of trucks and he spent much of his time supervising the construction site. We loved the house and the vacation time spent there!! Thank You!!!!!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

When my daughter decided to have her wedding in New Carlisle, Indiana, we immediately began a search for where to stay. We live in Arizona and wanted something convenient as well as providing us more amenities than a hotel room. We couldn't have asked or found a more perfect site that met all of our needs. We were able to include my daughter's future in-laws, the groom's maternal grandparents and my husband's brother and his wife. We had plenty of room and appreciated the convenience of 3.5 bathrooms when we all needed to be ready at the same time. The place is lovely. It is well furnished and maintained. New Buffalo is such a wonderful town and we absolutely enjoyed our stay. We liked it so much that we talked about coming back next fall.

A beautiful cottage perfectly located for convenient walks to the beach, restaurants and shops.

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was a very special one. My dearest high school friends of more than 45 years along with my two adult sons with Autism. These wonderful women, along with this perfectly situated cottage, helped make for a wonderful week for my sons and I. The coastline of southwest Michigan is convenient from Indianapolis and gives us the chance to give our sons the 'feel' of the ocean without air travel or days on the highway! The cottage provided ample spaces for the boys to find quiet solitude when they needed it, and casual strolls down quiet streets to watch the sunset, just visit the beach or grab a hamburger at Edamacks! It will be even better once the construction nearby is done.

Thank you Howard! Thank you dear friends!!
