Howard's place is in a great location. Short walk to the beach. Lots of things to do in the area that were close. Our dogs love it too, as it was a nice area to walk the dogs. Howard was great to work with and answered all of our questions. Great stay.
Our family of 7 + new baby had a wonderful stay at the cottage for a week. We loved the close location to the lake, shops, and fabulous bakeries. We were able to bring our two dogs and had a 5 month old baby with us and the house was plenty big. We loved the decks and outdoor spaces and each night took a walk on the lake. We'd highly recommend Howard's cottage for anyone look for an incredible Michigan trip!
My husband and I recently stayed at the cottage for a week and couldn't have been happier and more relaxed with this lovely setting! The cottage is charming, cozy and close to everything you need. Howard was wonderful to work with and was so kind and generous to us. We couldn't recommend this cottage more and look forward to another stay!
Charming cottage - great location, three bedrooms, amazing deck, and frog sprinkler for tykes!
We stayed here as two families of four, each with children younger than five who have interesting night time sleep habits. Two of our girls shared one room and each couple took a younger child in a crib in their room. The three bedrooms were perfect for our purposes. We made all of our meals in the kitchen and grilled outdoors. Our children loved the outdoor deck and ate "feasts" outdoors overnight. The froggie sprinklers and hammock were big hits. The cottage is surrounded by lush greenery - trees, wildflowers, and clematises abound. The beach was so close - we walked (and brought strollers, but note the beach has STAIRS!). We were just a short drive from a playground for the kids, from Downtown New Buffalo (another beach, another playground, and a nice strip of shops, ice cream, and food). We had a lovely time at a well-stocked home - towels, beach toys, games, TONs of kid's book, and the beds were comfy. A wonderful value for a really fantastic place.
Fall Lake Michigan Weekend
What a beautiful place to spend a fall weekend! The house has everything we needed for a cozy family getaway. There were two separate bedroom areas that worked well for a two generation group. We enjoyed the nearby lake access, grocery store, restaurants, bakery and orchard. We'd like to do it again next year!
Cozy vacation cottage
What a wonderfully relaxing week we had with our adult children, my brothers and their wives and Buckley our grand dog ! The cottage is cozy and comfortable and very well equipped with everything we needed and more! We hope to return next year with our new grandson and his parents!
