Lovely home, great winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Spotless house, great for groups or families. Four roomy bedrooms but also plenty of other areas for airbeds. Very accommodating owners, and also they were quickly responsive to a question during our stay. The house is definitely walking distance to the town of New Buffalo and the harbor and beach. Some reviews say the Amtrak was loud; yes the track is RIGHT behind the house but didn’t bother us in the least; actually it was kinda cool watching it whiz by a few times. Plus the train stop is conveniently near the house, also walking distance. Fully-equipped beautiful kitchen, nice/spotless linens (with plenty of sheets for airbeds and couches, nice screened patio (but it was winter) and overall nice house with really nice owners. Would book again!

Good times, great house!

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect! Stayed with 7 girlfriends for the weekend to relax, drink and eat! The house is gorgeous and spacious. We all had plenty of room and didn't feel like we were on top of one another. House supplies everything you need to. Stocked kitchen and beds were all very comfy. Would stay here again!

Awesome home!

The house was beautiful and really fit my family's needs. We enjoyed short walk to Stray Dog, wine tastings, beach and other establishments in town. We would highly recommend this home and are already thinking about planning a longer stay next year.

Loved it

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house. We had everything we needed. My only critique that would make it even better is an ironing board, iron and drying rack for clothes
