                                                                  We spent a long holiday winter weekend and everything was perfect! Great location, with a very easy walk to a nearby bakery/coffee shop. House was wonderful, with a very comfortable living area to hang out in, along with a wood burning fireplace. Nicely decorated and super clean. Strongly recommend staying here!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  This home is far from your usual rental property!It is so thoughtfully and carefully decorated and cared for that you can truly feel the happy vibe as you walk in. Not a stone left unturned, down to a cord of firewood left for us, shampoo on the shower, extra blankets, bicycles, and other touches that let you know that this owner really is vested in your vacation experience. Cannot rave about it enough!!!

The home is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need for a great stay. We will definitely be renting this home again. The owner was terrific to work with. It is also a very short walk to the water.

This property is perfect for two or four people....nice size bedrooms on the first floor. The location is very good, in the middle of many of our destinations. We greatly enjoyed our stay.

Great open living and dining areas as well as very nice porch and deck. Beach is an easy walk. The owner was super nice and helpful and I would highly recommend this cottage - it comfortably accommodated our family of 6.

                                                                  MI Retreat is situated a just few blocks from the beaches of Lake Michigan. Although it provides a relaxing, serene environment, you can also choose to ride bikes to Stray Dog in New Buffalo, shop the local boutiques, go wine tasting, ride go-carts, or hit the nearby casinos. MI Retreat offers a great location with many activity options or simply a comfortable place to relax, play games and enjoy yourself on the couch, outdoor deck or screened-in porch.
