Property description

LAZY DAYS & SUMMER NIGHTS:

The Storybook Cottage is the perfect place to return to after a busy day out at the beach or the many other fun activities in New Buffalo, Michigan, and the surrounding Harbor Country.

From the glistening white sands of Lake Michigan's beaches to the lush, beautiful countryside in bloom, Harbor Country combines the best of two worlds. Rustic country charm coupled with highly sophisticated shops, restaurants, and galleries.

New Buffalo, Michigan has been described as the HEART of Harbor Country. While you are here, we invite you to stay at the Storybook Cottage and rest, refresh, and reconnect with those you love. In addition to sun and sand, enjoy morning coffee on the porch, concerts in the park, fine and casual dining, antique shops, theaters, vintage markets, farmers markets, art galleries, museums, state parks, nature trails, bike routes, water sports, boating, country fairs, festivals, 4 Winds Casino, Michigan blueberries, vineyards, wineries, and perhaps--most importantly--TIME to connect with those you love!

Beautiful, idyllic, year-round two bedroom bungalow perfect for ROMANCE or SMALL FAMILY VACATION. Short walk to beach, shops, restaurants. No need to spend a lot of time packing. Fully stocked kitchen, fireplace, A/C, W/D, flat screen TV/DVD, WiFi, grill, bicycles. Comfortably sleeps 4-5.

AUTUMN, WINTER, SPRING--
SMALL 1-STOPLIGHT TOWN WITH
YEAR-ROUND POSSIBILITIES:

There are times, year-round, when everyone's in need of a fun, yet relaxing break. Be assured . . . the fun in New Buffalo doesn't stop at warm beach days.

Autumn, Winter, Spring. There's something to be said for the small-town magic of bountiful harvest days, hushed snowy winter nights, and earth-awakening springtime delights.

Even in the less-congested seasons, the Storybook Cottage welcomes you to an unexpected kind of adventure and, perhaps, even more opportunities to decompress and reconnect!

Explore Harbor Country by foot, auto, or bicycle. Satisfy your appetite for good food and truly enjoyable times--like Harvest Days, Apple Cider Biking, Christmas Carol Sing-Alongs, the the annual Santa Parade, Art Attack, and Chocolate Classics.

When it's time to turn in for the night, return to the Storybook Cottage to sit and talk, read a book, or hunker down by the fire. It's time to relax, refresh, and reconnect with those you love.

Owner info

About the owner: Rebecca and her husband, Bill, were both raised in New Buffalo. They met when they were both in the sixth grade talent show but wonder--since they were in the same class starting in kindergarten--why it took them so long! After college, both moved away from the area but, after reconnecting, getting married, and birthing two baby girls, they were quick to return "home" in order to give their girls the same advantages they had growing up. It is true--every member of the Conway family knows he or she is fortunate to live in a one-stoplight town on a big lake with small town advantages and big city opportunities. The family resides just a few houses down from Rebecca's family home and enjoys sharing the Storybook Cottage with others.
