Year Purchased: 2012
About: We've vacationed many times to Harbor Country and knew we'd want a place of our own here some day to make many (more) family memories. Fortunately, we found an amazing cottage with tons of space to accommodate us and our children as they grow from toddlers to teenagers. Both of us are from Indianapolis and are IU graduates. Like Bloomington and the Nashville, IN area, Harbor Country has a lot of outdoor activities to take advantage of year round with the benefit of the beach. Having lived in California for three years, New Buffalo is 'the other west coast' to us. The sunsets over large Lake Michigan are gorgeous!
Why New Buffalo, MI, USA:
We're an active family. We picked this location in New Buffalo because once you are here, you won't need your car much. Everything is within walking distance - even for little ones - but when we're in this home, we feel the privacy and serenity we were seeking in a vacation home. It's the best of both worlds for us! The yard is shady and private and the street is quiet but we're blocks from walking to grab a coffee, ice cream, a cocktail, dinner, or take-out pizza. If it's a rainy day, we can go next door to the library or get in the car and head to the outlets, a movie, antique shops, boutiques, live theater, casino - so much more!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the big windows in the front room, the large dining room to gather as a family, and the openness and natural light in every room. The yard is shady but has tons of grassy areas to play. The patio is a favorite hang out for morning coffee and evenings around the chimnea. When it rains the mature trees create a natural umbrella from the street to the front door. Upstairs the front bedroom we call the 'kids room'. Our kids think it is fun to go up there and play on any of the four twin beds or snuggle in the papason and bean bag to read a book or watch a movie. The skylights in the Master bedroom give the room an even more open feel and the view from the window is gorgeous looking out at the mature, lush landscaping. We like how the upstairs bathroom is accessible right off the Master but also from the hall in between the two upstairs bedrooms. If the grandparents want to come up with us, they can stay in the first floor bedroom and not have to worry about climbing stairs. The arch over the kitchen reminds us of our first home together - an old Tudor - that had many arched doors.
