About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

You and your family WORK HARD all year long ... Now it's time to PLAY HARD!! It's time to reconnect with your loved one(s) in this great 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath condo located in New Buffalo just steps away from the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan. It is your home away from home without all of the headaches as everything is provided for your enjoyment. The condo is fully equipped with linens, bath towels, kitchen, 3 digital TVs, DVD/CD surround sound stereo, and wifi internet service. The unit has all granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, bamboo hardwood floors on the main level, carpeted bedrooms, and a nautical decor throughout.

The front screened in porch is great for those cool breezes as you sip on your morning coffee or as the kids/family play their favorite board game. The roof top deck is wonderful for gazing at the stars at night and reflecting on the activities of the day. The main deck is superb for watching the sunset over beautiful Lake Michigan while entertaining your family and friends or while honing your 'Grill Meister' skills on the gas barbeque.

Whether you choose to read a book from one of the three decks over looking Lake Michigan, take a swim in the lake or private association pool, talk about old times with family/friends while in the heated Jacuzzi, or simply take a walk on the sandy beach, this vacation get-a-way is about one hour away from downtown Chicago and its suburbs and only 35 minutes from the University of Notre Dame. Take the train from Chicago's Union Station and in about 75 minutes, you'll arrive at the front door. Take the train into down town Chicago for a day of shopping, site seeing, eating, and/or to your favorite sporting event. It is the perfect place to reflect on old memories while making new ones.

If you choose to get out and treat yourself to the best life has to offer, New Buffalo has it all. You can virtually park the car and walk to a variety of restaurants, bistros, clothing boutiques, antique shops, art galleries, day spas, and wine shops, as well as a grocery store, and pharmacy. In New Buffalo, you can experience the FourWinds Casino; various wineries; bicycle, canoe, and/or kayak rentals; or simply walk along the many trails and sandy shores. In Michigan City (just 15 minutes away), you can visit the Blue Chip Casino, Zoo, and the Lighthouse Place Premium outlet Mall with over 120 outlet stores just waiting for you.
