About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Tucked away in the wooded Walden cottage enclave sits Tallgrass Cottage, a healing sanctuary for you and your family for a week or weekend. Surrounded by nature, but within walking distance of the quaint downtown of New Buffalo, and less than a mile from the New Buffalo beach, Tallgrass is a short 70 miles from Chicago. Once here, you'll immediately notice how the sweet, fragrant air will begin to relax you. Stepping inside Tallgrass, you'll be struck by the openness and abundance of natural Michigan light streaming in from all sides, including the multiple skylights. You won't come for the granite counter tops, stainless sinks and appliances, nuanced lighting or vaulted ceilings in the great room, but each will make your stay more comfortable and distraction free as you use our home as a base for your daily excursions around southwest Michigan.

Wine tastings at the multiple nearby wineries, seasonal festivals, world-class antiquing, kayaking, fishing, golf on challenging and pristine courses, and cycling are just some of the activities you and your family or friends can enjoy during your visit. At night, kick back on the open deck, or read that novel you've been meaning to get to on the screened-in porch. Plan a dinner at one of the nearby, one-of-a-kind restaurants, or grill out under the brightest stars you never get to see in the city. With three bedrooms, three full baths, and an activity loft for you and the kids, Tallgrass accommodates four to six people comfortably. Don't wait. Reserve your vacation time with us today. If you do, we promise you'll want to come back to see us again and again.

Bring food, drinks, personal items, and the good times.

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

Great floor plan for family of 4-5...lots of room to spread out. The deck and screened in porch were an unexpected bonus as it allowed us to enjoy the outdoors, even after a long day at the beach. Property is about 5 minutes from town and the beach and an easy enough jumping off point to the interstate for day trips. Would highly recommend this property if wanting to stay in the New Buffalo area..clean, nicely decorated, modern amenitieis, and extras such as beach chairs and kitchen dishes and accessories.

Tranquil retreat

  • 5 of 5

Tallgrass Cottage is a hidden gem in New Buffalo. The home is beautifully decorated, and as soon as you walk in the door you feel at home. The window seats on either side of the fireplace were my personal favorite, as that was a great place to sit, read and relax. The loft was great for the kids. They loved the toys, and that they had their own space to play. Everything about this home was wonderful and clean. The home is close to downtown and all New Buffalo has to offer. Overall a wonderful vacation. The staff at Waya Rentals were knowledgeable about the area, very friendly and prompt in answering my questions from where to eat to where to get groceries. Highly recommend this home!

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The cottage was perfect for a quiet get-away. The cottage was nicely decorated and had everything a person would need. It was clean and very well keep. We enjoyed the quiet town of New Buffalo and would defiantly stay there again if we where in the area. I would highly recommend. Thanks you for such a nice relaxing week.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tallgrass Cottage with another family and loved it! The house was cozy, comfortable, nicely decorated and clean with all the amenities included. Our kids had their own space in the loft where they played, watched tv and slept in their own separate room. We loved the screened in porch along with outside porch. It was also so close to town. We highly recommend and will be back soon!

We visited Tallgrass for a dual couple weekend retreat and were very satisfied with our stay. The house was very clean, comfortable, and just an overall relaxing place. The owner was helpful and available for questions. I would suggest the Stray Dog cafe for a casual dining experience. Try the fish tacos, they are delicious, and there are lots of local brews on tap. The Tallgrass cottage is a perfect place to unwind, worked well for our party of 4 to stay there. We had plenty of room, but was the right size to still be a cozy atmosphere. We really enjoyed sitting by the fire and visiting (with beers in hand made it even better!) We would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.
