About the property

3 Bedroom and 3 Bath Home with private inground pool.

This newer home with three completely remodeled baths is just 3 1/2 blocks from the private Lake Michigan access of Michigan Shores, with two access points to the beach. On a breezy night, you will hear the surf at the shore from your bedroom. There are 4 large skylights in the family room and kitchen to allow extra daylight...beautiful all year round! A recently completed bedroom, bathroom and Family room are on the lower level.

A large front and back porch offer plenty of additional outdoor space for relaxation. The large back yard is inviting for kids' outdoor games.

Enjoy the 55" LCD TV in the great room, or venture out to one of the six wineries in the area. The house is only 20 minutes from the Warren Dunes State park of Michigan, and 10 minutes from the Four Winds Casino of New Buffalo. The Blue Chip Casino is 10 minutes the other direction in Michigan City, Indiana.

Harbor Country of New Buffalo offers activities throughout the Summer, so check out downtown New Buffalo for restaurants, and the marina and public beach. Go to Harbor Country website to get all the latest goings-on in the area and learn about local wineries. The Lighthouse Outlet Mall is not far from the Blue Chip casino in Michigan City, and is another stop your shoppers will want to make for great buys.

Queen beds in each of the 2 bedrooms and twin beds in the new lower level bedroom will accomodate up to a maximum of 6 guests comfortably. As a reminder, this is strictly a non-smoking home, including the private outdoor premises.

Why The Owner chose New Buffalo

We love the New Buffalo area, and wanted to be close to the lake. We also love the in-ground private pool. This 14 year old home and pool is a most relaxing place in the country.

The Best Rest Ever

  • 5 of 5

2 Burned out Moms and 2 tired daughters found refuge in this beautiful property. From the moment we walked in, we felt at home. The home is spotless and its obvious who ever built this home was a perfectionist. The girls (in their 20's) were delighted to have their own sleeping suite downstairs.

We loved that we each found our quiet place...front porch, back porch, pool and little patio off the lower deck. It was peaceful. We floated in the lovely pool, chatted for hours under the Pergola, read books, cooked good food and barely left the place!

There was a brief afternoon of outlet shopping, eating lunch out and a nice wine bar....but honestly, we loved this place so much we just cacooned for the week.

The home is very well equipped and you will lack for nothing while there.

The beach is close to take in some beautiful daughter is a runner and found it a great place to run.

The beds while in great shape were a little firm for our old bones...but a quick trip to Walmart for a foam topper fixed us right up.....the girls of course slept like princesses.

We would definitely come back to this Oasis.

Owners were wonderful to work with.

Beautiful home with pool near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of four and could easily have fit 1 or 2 more. Our 2 young children slept in the basement so we could have the living area upstairs to ourselves once they went to bed.

The home is beautiful, with all the modern amenities, and well-maintained. We were happy the pool was heated as we could use it even on relatively cool days (by midwest standards). There are lots of towels, beach and pool toys, and most things you would need (note that you are expected to bring additional paper towels, toilet paper, and your own laundry detergent).

The beautiful private beach is a short walk, although note that it is uphill (relevant if you're pushing a stroller). There is a great park nearby where the kids can play when they tire of beach/pool. There are no restaurants walking distance but everything is a very short drive.

The owners were extremely responsive and helpful when we had two small issues.

Overall this was a perfect vacation home, and we hope to return again next summer. Highly recommend!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed for a week in August. This home is very nice and has everything you need for great vacation. We really enjoyed the living space and the pool was awesome. The home is in walking distance of a private beach area. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed watching a family of deer that visited the back yard one evening. The access to New Buffalo and Michigan City is great, both towns are quite nice. Marlene and Darryl offered great advice on local shopping and dining out. Overall, a wonderful time!

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home with our 2 girls and in-laws. It was very clean and comfortable and our girls loved the pool. The beach was not as close to walk to as we expected. We loved the back porch!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed for a week during the last week of July. The photos of this house do not do it justice. It is a gorgeous and well-maintained house. The pool was amazing! We loved being able to put our bathing suits on and jump right into the pool. The kitchen was perfectly stocked. We like to cook meals on vacation, and it had everything you would need and then some. We loved the spacious showers. There are plenty of things to do in New Buffalo for a young family. The private beach was beautiful. It was a 10 minute walk, shady and scenic. You don' t really need the beach though with such a fabulous pool! There were a few minor issues, but the owners were very responsive via phone and text, and very nice. I would highly recommend this rental for your vacation stay.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was SOOOO clean. I can honestly say that the pictures do not do it justice! It is so much better! The pool is so cute and there is a great gazebo to sit under, along with a grill. The neighborhood is cute too. Close to everything, but also not too close where it would be noisy. Kitchen is fully stocked for cooking with every bowl, plate, and utensil. The owners were easy to get in touch with as well and very nice! You wont regret this place.
