Property description

Another great home from Yellow Bird Vacations!

If interested in seeing reviews of this property or any of the other 60 homes we manage in Southwest Michigan, please visit us on the internet at Yellow Bird Vacations in Union Pier, Michigan.

What else could you ask for? Privacy right in the middle of downtown New Buffalo. Single family home close to the beach and shops with separate cottage in the back of the property. Cottage sits next to a creek which runs alongside the property. The new hot tub seats six and is ready to go!

As Good as it Gets is a big gem right next to downtown New Buffalo. Single family home sitting on one of the biggest lots in the area, with a separate cottage sitting off to the back of it. Privacy is key for this home. You are surrounded by trees on 2 sides of the property with a creek running down one side. There is a big back yard for gathering, games and entertainment or sit back and relax on the wraparound deck on the cottage or the porch swing by the creek.

This house is perfect for a large family gathering or groups of people getting together to enjoy anytime of year. The cottage has its own bedroom and full bath, kitchenette with microwave, television and a DVD player. Main house kitchen fully furnished for 10. Garage has been renovated and converted to a game room so all can gather together for meals or games. Full-size refrigerator is out there also.

We also shut down the water to the guest house during the winter(December - March approx.) to prevent the pipes from freezing. It is still heated and very usable of course!
