Great Beach family friendly property

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. We had 3 adults and 4kids under the age of 6. The house is walk to town and restaurants. The kids loved watching the train. The train only goes by a few times a day and should not be a deterrent to renting this property. The basement was spaciouous and comfortable. Will definitely be returning to this property.

A perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with six girlfriends for a long weekend away and it was amazing! The house was more than large enough to accommodate all of us very comfortably. It is nicely appointed with modern finishes, and had everything we needed. We were able to walk wherever we wanted, to the beach, restaurants and grocery store. I would highly recommend staying here!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Wish we had planned for more days. The house, itself, is beautiful and well appointed. While you can't see Lake Michigan directly from the property, the downtown of New Buffalo and the beach are a short walk away. The owners included a fold-up wagon and beach chairs to use. The casino and Warren Dunes are short drives away. We would definitely go back.

Well-maintained, spacious, great for all ages

  • 5 of 5

Described well, yet there is even more than meets the eye, in all sorts of positive ways! we were two families, with kids ranging in age from 11 months to 17 years old. This is the kind of house where all ages are comfortable. Proximity to train should not be a deterrent to renting this wonderful house. None of us heard it at night. Amazing location. Kitchen is huge and open.

Be advised...A LOT of train noise

  • 3 of 5

This property sits about six feet from railroad tracks used by Amtrak, and a crossing is just down the road. The house has no level of soundproofing so you hear clearly every (loud) whistle, and the entire house shakes with each passing. There are maybe five trains per day and night -- not excessive but certainly an annoyance. I somehow missed this fact before booking and would have selected another property because our group was traveling with an infant and a toddler, both of whom were woken during naps and at night.

Other than this, the house was adequate. It is newer and well appointed. The size and four bedrooms were fantastic and hard to find elsewhere. The check out procedures were stricter than other VRBOs I've rented and thus more time consuming. Overall, if the noise isn't a deal breaker then this property is worth a look.
