About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Four-bedroom home in the woods of Camp Buffalo Cottages. Designed and built as a rental property with all the amenities for family entertainment or a romantic getaway. You'll enjoy our two floors of fully-furnished, four-season porches that overlook the woods and a landscaped, private ravine. The wooded backyard includes a large fire pit for roasting marshmallows or just snuggling with loved ones. The lower deck has a built-in hot tub and the upper deck a gas BBQ for year-round cookouts.

And just wait until you see the charming interior! You will not find a rental property in Harbor Country furnished and decorated more beautifully or warmly. The main level boasts dramatic vaulted ceilings in the family room and dining room and is accented with rustic cypress columns and trusses -- think luxury mountain lodge. The stone fireplace in the corner of the family room can also be viewed from the adjoining dining room and gourmet kitchen. The four bedrooms include two beautiful master suites, one on each level, each with majestic queen beds. Another of the four bedrooms has a bunk bed (bunk over full).

There are all kinds of entertainment features in this home. A whole-house stereo system will allow you to listen to multiple sources (Cable TV, DVD, CD or radio) in different rooms at the same time, including the porches and decks. Large flat-screen TVs with Blu-Ray/DVD will be found in the family room, both master suites and the game room. Oh, yes, the game room... The game room is furnished with matching rustic log game furniture including a large card game table, Foosball table and pub table for checkers and chess. There is also a 'Fold-a-Hoop' basketball game for those who enjoy something a bit more athletic. And for the gamers in the family, there is a Wii with four game controllers and several games for both kids and adults alike.

Camp Buffalo is an intimate community of 19 lodge-style homes constructed with logs and stone exteriors that fit well into the secluded woods. You will enjoy a community pool and clubhouse(seasonal) that are shared only by residents and renters.

The house is only a short, 15-minute walk to downtown New Buffalo and even less to the Oselka Park with baseball fields, tennis courts and a large playground for the kids. The public New Buffalo Beach is less than 3/4 mile away, and has parking for a small daily fee. Golfing, boating, jet-skiing, the Four Winds Casino, apple picking and a train museum are all a short drive away.

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

This property is well maintained and equipped for the comfort and convenience of our guests. Our vacation rentals include well-equipped kitchens, living and dining areas. Linens and towels are provided. Homes have washers and dryers, dishwashers, central heat and air conditioning, cable/satellite television, DVD-players, high-speed Internet service, and outdoor gas or charcoal grills.

We ask that renters bring condiments, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, extra toilet paper and convenience items like plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and zip lock bags. We do not supply fire wood for homes which have wood-fueled amenities like a fire pit or a wood-burning fireplace. We do not resupply anything during the stay. We provide two rolls of toilet paper for each bathroom, 2 rolls of paper towels, 4 garbage bags, and hand soap in each bathroom -- so plan according to your needs.

Minimum Age Limit for Renters: Guest signing the rental agreement/contract must be 30 years of age or older (ID at check-in required) and must be responsible for the group during the entire time of the stay.

There are no complaints about this home. We had a wonderful weekend here in New Buffalo! Close to town, the beach, the restaurants and the casino. The home was like staying in our own private retreat. Both master bedrooms were spa like feeling, and were super relaxing, and the game room was an added bonus. We truly loved staying here. Waya Rentals were great to work with. They answered all of our questions, and were super helpful.

I just spent the most wonderful weekend with a group of 7 friends in this amazing house! Not only was it spotless, it was gorgeous! The kitchen was well stocked and the large dining table accommodated 8. We had so much room to spread out but there were plenty of places to congregate as a group. The screened in porches were a favorite during a cool rain. The entire house was comfortable, including the beds! Although we didn't use them, the hot tub and fire pit looked so inviting. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. We loved it and do plan to return!

Great winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 9 girls for a weekend getaway. The house was absolutely perfect! The open layout upstairs is so nice for everyone being able to spend time together and still have enough space. The bedrooms were all spacious and the beds were super comfortable. The bathrooms were also really nice and the showers felt like you were at a spa! The hot tub was a great addition for the cold winter! All in all I would highly recommend this house, we loved it!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Friends and family weekend getaway. We had a group of 8 people.

The main floor of the house is spacious, the fully-finished basement has 3 room with 4 beds. We did require an air mattress to accommodate everyone, but if you choose this rental, the couches are very comfortable and most definitely can be slept on. The kitchen and dining area are excellent. The bedroom on the main floor is awesome!

A four seasons room on each floor, with the basement room having the hot tub directly outside of the four seasons room. Hot tub is good (a little small, but good nonetheless). Game room downstairs is a lot of fun.

This is an excellent rental property. It is secluded enough to feel private, yet close enough to downtown New Buffalo. Not only did the rental meet our group's needs, but dealing with Waya Rentals was a most pleasurable experience as well.

I previously had a bad experience with another realty rental company in this area. Waya was excellent to deal with and we will most definitely be using them again!
