About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Office, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-18)

Come enjoy our beautiful home! It is a perfect location near the beach, as well as golf, tennis, basketball, and a park. Along with the heated pool and the sand area for kids to play, you may never even need to leave the house.

The home has 6 bedrooms. One downstairs bedroom has a king bedroom with seating area (with trundle beds) and attached full bath. The second downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, also with attached full bath. The master suite is located on the 1st floor, and includes a whirlpool tub and giant stone shower. Also on the 1st floor is the office area, which has a crib and changing table for little ones, as well as a laundry room with front loading washer/dryer. On the second floor, there is the 'kids room' which has a set of twin size bunk beds, a set of full size bunk beds and a toddler bed, as well as a full bathroom. Two other bedrooms on the second floor include a queen size bed and a king size bed, and share another full bathroom.

There are many areas to relax, including the three-season room off the kitchen, the loft area on the 2nd floor, and the main family room on the 1st floor. The three-season room includes comfortable seating and a flat screen tv. The 2nd floor loft has a flat screen tv and comfortable seating. The main family room includes 2 couches and loveseats, and is set up for family game time.

There is also plenty of seating for meals, including a dining room table for 8, kitchen table for 9, and the dining table on the deck with enough seating for 12.

The outside is even more fun, with a full fenced in back yard. There is a putting green if you want to brush up before your golf game, a large sand area for kids to play, or adults to get in a little beach volleyball or badmitten. There is also a large, in-ground sports pool perfect for cooling off.

For those who like to enjoy the outdoors, there are beautiful roads connecting several areas of Grand Beach, and various beach access spots for a relaxing walk or bike ride.

At the same time you are within a 10 minute drive to Michigan City, IN for shopping, dining, etc. and you are also only minutes from the downtown New Buffalo area with many restaurants and activities. It provides the best of both worlds for your vacation.

We travel together as a family (grandparents, 4 siblings and spouses, and grandkids), and now have a place to go often and enjoy spending time together.

Why Laura Jachim chose New Buffalo

We have vacationed in many areas of Michigan from South Haven all the way to Long Beach, Indiana' and we love New Buffalo the most. It is very centrally located, and has many activities to keep all ages entertained.

What makes this house unique

The house is so large that it allows a large group, whether friends or family, to enjoy spending time together, while also having enough space for private time as well. We have children ranging from 17 to newborn, so the house is equipped with a variety of items for entertaining all ages. We also enjoy playing games together, whether board games, video games, or outdoor sports, so the house is well equipped for vacationing. We also love to cook together, so the kitchen is ready for large groups and is well equipped.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice house for our large family, plenty of bedrooms for all 17 of us, great deck surrounds the house, plenty of room in the common areas. Would definitely stay there again. It was only 2 blocks to the beach. The backyard was great with a putting green that the grand-kids liked.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful!!! This house worked out extremely well for our group. Very clean, spacious and well kept. We have rented houses many times and this one rates at the top. Pool, deck and backyard, excellent. There is plenty of room for everyone without being crowded. It was our first time staying in the New Buffalo area and we would definitely do it again. There was plenty to do and beautiful too. Top marks for this one.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had family ranging in ages from 7 to 70 (me and my wife) staying at this location. Everyone had a great time and wants to come back in 2018. The highlights of the stay were the volleyball contests, except for the 70 yr olds, in the pool and the bean bag contests on the putting green. The sun room, with TV for the young ones, provided a nice retreat for a little quite from the main crowd. It's a short drive to New Buffalo for the public beach and places to eat. Oinks is the place to get ice cream but be prepared for the crowd, it moves pretty fast though.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately the weather wasn't so great so we didn't take full advantage of outdoor space but that's uncontrollable. Was perfect for a weekend away!

Great House for our Group

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic for our needs. We had 14 adults and an infant. The host had infant equipment ready for us which allowed us to travel lightly. There was plenty of room for the 14 of us to spread out and enjoy each others company. The kitchen had everything we needed and enough parking for all our cars. Would rent again if available.

Lovely Family Property

  • 5 of 5

This home is welcoming, with thought put into any comfort and activity a family could enjoy. Rooms are spacious and inviting. My family of 18 (age 7 to 70) had room to gather indoors and outside, but found spaces for quiet time too. The sparkling pool area was our wonderful haven. The location is an easy walk to the beach and shopping is not far. This home lives up to all the promised listing information, a high recommendation.
