Relaxing, Renovated New Buffalo Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an excellent, relaxing stay.

The house has a very open floor plan, and a great, private backyard. Additionally, the owners left great notes on what to do around town for all different types of people and weather.

The surrounding town was very close and walkable.

Lastly, I arrived very early, and the owner was very accommodating in allowing me to settle in early so that I could surprise my family with dinner already made.

All-in-all a great vacation.

(Only thing that could have been a little better was having more to work with in the kitchen for cooking)

Great weekend get away for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 people stay in the house this weekend.

The house was very cute. The house was accommodating to our big group, everyone had a place to sleep and we even all fit around the kitchen table. It was a 30 minute drive to the wine trail - Round Barn, Lemon Creek, and Tabor Hill. We also got lucky when we realized that we were able to catch the Four Winds shuttle at the hotel down the street.

Great Location, Great Space!

Wonderful Beachy Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfect for me and several of my girlfriends. We made this cute beach house our homebase for our ladies winery weekend; it was PERFECT! Very comfortable beds, spacious rooms, and more than plenty of room to accommodate 8-10 people, more if that is allowed. The location was perfect to get to the lake and to downtown New Buffalo easily. Us ladies did a winery tour with the pickup location just .1mi away, which made it an easy walk home. I would definitely stay here again, the only thing that you would need to bring is your food and beverage, these home owners have thought of everything else for you!

We stayed at the house for my 30th birthday celebration, and it was absolutely perfect! The house definitely played a huge part in making the weekend a success.

It has SO much room- we all were able to fit and sleep comfortably, and it is spaced out enough that people could go to bed at different times and not be woken up by the people still awake.

The backyard is huge, there is a hammock, a hot tub, and a fire pit! We used all of them!

The kitchen layout is great too- really open with a ton of counter space if you are going to be cooking. We cooked dinner and breakfast with a big group, and it was easy to manage and fit comfortably.

Best part: The house is walking distance to the beach, to the shops and restaurants in New Buffalo, and to a shuttle that takes you to the Four Winds Casino.

I would definitely stay here again for my next getaway in New Buffalo!

Great House!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great girls getaway weekend here. Close to all of the local wineries. At night the big kitchen was well stocked with everthing and big enough to cook and chat. We also enjoyed the hot tub. The house and yard are well matained. Plenty of space and beds for everyone. Michelle was available and quick to respond for any questions we had. I look forward to staying there again.

The house was great! We had 12 women stay there for a family weekend and everyone had a bed.

  • 4 of 5

The hot tub was wonderful and we made a fire in the fire pit! Loved the deck in the morning for coffee. Easy walk into downtown or to the beach. The only thing that might be nice would be a basement bathroom- tough for those down there! Otherwise charming house in great location. Thank you!
