Why Karen chose Southwest

Since my grandfather started coming to Lakeside in the early 1900's, our family has had a special attachment to the New Buffalo area. Rose Hill Cottage has evolved over the years into a charming 3 bedroom home with all the modern conveniences without losing any of the qualities that made our family cherish our summer trips to stay at the 'cottage'. If rain spoils a beach day, there are numerous antique stores nearby or a 20 minute drive to Michigan City puts you at either Marquette Mall or The Lighthouse Outlet Mall--or any number of other stores.

What makes this cottage unique

Until you have had access to a private beach, you may not know what all the fuss is about. Yes, we have association rules but due to the modest size of our association, none are overly restrictive. You can leave your towel and beach chair for an extended walk and it will all be there when you come back.

Essence of Michigan Summer

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Rose Hill Cottage, though we had been coming to the Union Pier Area for many years. The cottage is very comfortably furnished, impeccably clean and more spacious than the pictures indicate. Our six-person family had plenty of space and privacy. For us the very well equipped kitchen was also a big draw -- we cooked, baked and barbecued every night. The area is quiet and beautiful -- the beach is close enough to hear the surf at night. We are definitely coming back!

I love this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Rose Hill for four years, and I already reserved for a fifth. Rose Hill is a pleasant, simple, very comfortable cottage - it matches my memories of such cottages from childhood. Over the years, I have invited friends and family. This year, my daughter and son-in-law begged to extend the stay for another week - and the in-laws asked for another week! Rose Hill is a quick walk to and from the beach. My friends and I love to cook and the kitchen is just right for us to do so. The beds are comfy, the cottage is always clean. For me, Rose Hill is a perfect exemplar of a Michigan vacation place. I use 'simple' in the best sort of way - the life style for the weeks I am there is simple: swimsuits, shorts, t-shirts, bare feet in the cottage, good food (Barney's in New Buffalo has become a great grocery store!), good restaurants, amazing sunsets night after night, cricket noise all night and day. Who needs anything else! (80 minutes from downtown Chicago is a plus.)
