Charming 4 Bedroom close to beach, golf course and tennis courts

  • 4 of 5

We loved it's location, close to the beach, golf course and tennis courts. The screened in porch was appreciated and enjoyed, especially in the mornings and evenings. The house is well maintained and we felt welcomed.

Small recommended improvements include a new king sized mattress for the upstairs Master Bedroom and the golf cart seemed sluggish on the hills so we were afraid to use it on the golf course.

Family vacation for six adults, one infant

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I plus our three adult children, son-in-law and grandson spent a wonderful week at this cottage. We all were very comfortable in this clean and pleasant home. We love to cook together and found the kitchen well equipped for our needs. With five bedrooms to choose from we all had our privacy and slept great. The beach is a short block away and is small but private. On several days we had it completely to ourselves. With New Buffalo so close by we enjoyed lunch out and dinner one night with ice cream at Oinks for dessert!

Our hosts were very helpful, answering all our questions about their place prior to booking and any that came up after that as well. We would definitely go back!

We had a wonderful time at this adorable cottage...It is bigger then it looks!

It was really clean and well maintained..Well stocked with everything we needed for a great stay. Towels, soaps for bathing..dishes and towels etc.

The owner was very helpful in all his emails and answered all my questions. He was very pleasant to deal with and quick to respond. Suggested good places to eat and told us about the farmers market in town.

Plenty of beds for everyone! We took our 4 adult kids and 3 grandchildren and two of their friends. The room with 4 twin beds was really nice for the 2 boys who ended up coming to spend time with our grandson.

The beach had many access points and we loaded up the golf cart and sometimes the car also to get the kayaks down to the water. There was always a place to leave the cart and car. The beach was beautiful and not very crowded like a public beach.

We rented a paddle board in town for 3 days and the kids loved it! They kayaked..golfed 3 times..played some tennis and the girls went to the playground on a chilly day. The boys loved the sloopy roads for doing their penny boards also.

We saw lots of deer with their fawns..had some baby crows out back learning how to land in the trees which was fun to watch.

Had a fire in the firepit (they had plenty of wood) and told scary stories....while we were doing that we heard a rustling in the bushes...took a flashlight to check it out and it was a deer watching us!!

Used the gas grill to cook steaks one night also.

We would definitely stay at this lovely cottage again!

perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful home with a wonderful screened in back porch. The property is very clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed the location very close to the water - you can actually hear the lake while sitting on the porch. Grand Beach is really unique and you definitely feel like you've gotten away from it all. Our family highly recommends this home. We had a fantastic time and plan to go again next year.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a beautiful place. My family enjoyed staying at this lovely cottage that is just steps away from a beautiful private beach. The cottage is located in a great community. I can't say enough about the screened in porch. It's a perfect spot to relax and hang out with the family. The golf cart was nice to have if you had to bring lots of extras to the beach or if you just want to take an enjoying ride around Grand Beach. The cottage has plenty of room and is very cozy. The cottage is minutes away from some of our favorites like Redamak's and Oinks. The owners are wonderful and are very easy to work with. We can't wait to come back next year! I would definitely recommend this cottage!
