Awesome, cozy little cottage. Perfect size for my family to stay and meet up with other family in the area. Clean and tastefully decorated. We loved being able to make fires in the back yard. Thanks so much!

New Buffalo Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Spent four relaxing nights at this property in June of 2017. Cottage is conveniently located just a few blocks from the business district and it's restaurants and just a few miles to the casino. It's a nice location to for a home base when exploring SW Michigan. Cottage was well stocked with cookware and bedding, games and firewood. The cable had a generous package of channels and the wifi worked as it should. Skylights enhanced the lighting indoors and a myriad of lighting combinations create any mood you would desire. Charlie was a great owner to work with and we would certainly stay here again in the future. Oh...did I mention that the bathroom floor was heated? Nice touch!

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful - great location, and away from the craziness in town. The house had everything we needed. The bedrooms were nice, and we enjoyed hanging out in the living room and kitchen. The back yard is large, and with the bushes, you don't even realize you're near a busy street. The neighborhood was lovely as well.
