About Chris & Jolie Yonker

We grew up in Chicago and spent summers and weekends in Harbor Country and on Lake Michigan. Eventually, we moved there! We now live in the Seacoast of NH and some of our annual highlights include our vacations at the Summer Cottage in New Buffalo.

Chris & Jolie Yonker purchased this house in 1993

Why Chris & Jolie Yonker chose Southwest

Having grown up in the area, this property has served as a second home to us for years. We are excited to share it with you. You'll find pretty much everything you need here: a well-appointed kitchen, comfortable furniture, light & bright beach-y decor, and the convenience of being close to downtown without the traffic and noise.

What makes this house unique

We cherish the memories of nights with friends on the spacious back deck and walking to the Stray Dog to drink a Bell's or Goose Island beer or to the beach to watch the sun go down. This home is quiet as it is located on a large lot in town, yet it is a short walk to the shopping/dining district and the beach.

Sibling Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house worked great as our meeting point in New Buffalo with 3 of the 4 siblings coming from New York, Texas and Minnesota. Easy to park at the house and get over to the marina. Great time enjoyed on the deck and perfect weather for us! House was very comfortable and very clean! Appreciated the owner's flexibilty to let us check out late!

GIRLS WEEKEND GET AWAY IN JUNE

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a weekend get away in June. This was our thirtieth trip and must say we enjoyed this

place immensely. The house was so charming and meticulously clean. We especially enjoyed sitting on the

back deck in the morning drinking coffee. Would certainly consider returning.

Memorial weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend at the cottage. It had everything we needed and was close everything. We walked to town everyday! The upstairs room was great for the kids. Chris and Joile were quick to respond to every question.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the cottage with my family for 3 nights and I cannot get over what a cute house it is. The house is very charming, very clean and has everything that you could possibly need. The kitchen is also equipped with so well that it even had a coffee grinder! SO we didn't need to bring anything. The house is in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood, with a big yard so you couldn't even see the neighbors. It is also very close to the beach and the city so walking was no problem. Chris and Jolie are wonderful and easy to reach. They took care of a little problem that arose (my fault) with the security deposit and apologized for it. I will surely want to come back!

Cute cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and sisters spent our vacation in Harbor Country and this was the perfect cabin for all of us! It was so nice to be able to cook some meals at "home" and relax on the deck in the mornings.

Annual trip with friends

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage. Very clean, tastefully furnished. The owners take great pride in maintaining the property and its very evident. The deck in the back is awesome with plenty of patio chairs and a new BBQ. The trees provide serenity. We even saw deer running through the property. New Buffalo is a quaint little town with a lovely beach. Weather had not been kind to us, but we made it up with a trip to Chicago-which is only an hour away.

Love to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being such great--and conscientious--guests! We do look forward to hosting you again! (We'll put in a special order of sunshine for you next time!) Glad you were able to take in a trip Chicago while you were in the area. The proximity to the cottage is a bonus, for sure!
