                                                          A very welcoming home and near the beach!

                                                          Sue H.

                                                          We had a very nice week at the Country Cottage! It was perfect for our family and was well appointed with everything we needed. We especially loved the large yard with multiple seating areas and how close it was to the beach. The beach equipment provided such as chairs and toys makes packing easier. Most importantly, you can tell that the home is well cared for and very clean.


                                                          Tryner P.

                                                          Clean. Well managed. Close to beach.

                                                          Karen A.

                                                          Lovely home with a beautiful yard in a quiet neighborhood. Easy walk to beach. Enjoyed using the cottage's outside shower after an afternoon at the beach. Biked to New Buffalo along shady roads with little traffic to the farmers market and ice cream shop with grandchildren. Our family really enjoyed a relaxing vacation together with something for everyone.

                                                          Very comfortable and convenient cottage for our family and dogs!

                                                          Jan M.Palatine IL

                                                          Location ideal - close to both beach and Whistle Stop Grocery and Red Arrow Roadhouse. Large fenced yard with both shade and sun with a variety of seating and a screen gazebo was ideal for hanging out for both people and our 2 dogs. Inside rooms were smaller as the cottage was built in the 30's but all were comfortable and furnished nicely. Kitchen appliances all were new or newer including the high efficiency washer dryer off the nice dining area with seating for 6.

                                                          Owners very responsive and accommodating.

                                                          Close to the beach, but...

                                                          Courtney G.

                                                          The owners of the Country Cottage are lovely, warm people. That said, they really need to put some money into this house. It is not as nice or as well maintained as it appears in the listing. The bathrooms are moldy with leaky showers. The outdoor shower is essentially useless, since it has no drainage of any kind, and you wind up standing in several inches of dirty water as soon as you turn it on. The stove is so lopsided I literally had to keep one hand on the skillet to keep it from sliding off the eye. At least one window doesn't lock because the frame is so rotten. It's just across Red Arrow from a set of train tracks with a railroad crossing nearby, which means every time a train goes by, it blows its whistle and the whole house shakes. (This happens frequently, including during the night.) The house does have a nice big, shady yard, although that yard is shared with another house. And the proximity to the beach is hard to beat. We had a good time while we were there, but I wish I'd had a clearer sense of the property's limitations. We've definitely stayed in nicer places for less money.

                                                          Awesome Vacation

                                                          We had a great time at The Country Cottage! Very clean home with newer, tasteful furnishings. All the necessities and just a couple of blocks from a great, private association beach. Walking distance to great restaurants and The Whistle Stop! Owners were very friendly, attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back! Thanks for a great week!!!!
