Nice house for a family but a little noisy,

  • 3 of 5

We really liked the house and the area. It's close to the lake, less then a mile. The beach is beautiful, but the water is cold. The house was pretty clean, the beds were not comfy but the linens were good. The house is really loud. And it only has one TV in the main area. We would suggest putting a hide-a-bed in the room up above the garage with a TV. Also put another bed in the downstairs room and not a hide-a-bed. The pool was right beside us and is heated. That area is nice for kids. There's ping pong and fuse ball. It was cool when we were there, but the kids swam all the time in the pool. If you do a lot of cooking, bring your own pots and pans, there's are bad.

We would consider going back there again or somewhere in the area. We shopped at Barney's in New Buffalo. It's also close to Michigan City if you want to go to outlets. St. Joseph is another neat town close to visit. Really loved the area.

Needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

Although there is plenty of sleeping space, this house has been neglected and abused. Every carpet has big stains on it, the place needs a really good cleaning, there were bulbs burnt out everywhere, the furniture is worn, the throw pillows are stained, and the linens are horrible. And the loft is above the garage, very segregated from the main house with no bathroom nearby. And the beds were not very comfortable. It's in a nice housing development, but we were extremely disappointed in the condition of the house.

Fun, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family gathering. We stayed in this house for 3 nights. The first night, only 4 of us were in the house, but the 2nd and 3rd nights,there were 12 of us in this house. It was very comfortable with plenty of space. In the living room, in addition to the large sectional shown in the picture, there were also two large comfortable armchairs. Plenty of space for us all to gather. The extended weekend when we stayed was chilly so we made good use of the fireplace in the living room. The house also has a large screened in porch. It was too chilly for us to spend time out there, but I imagine in the summer it would be quite nice out there. The beds were fine, however the fold out couch in the den has a very thin mattress. We had two little kids sleeping on that. They were fine on it, but I think an adult would be uncomfortable on that mattress. We didn't cook in the kitchen but it was fully stocked with everything you would need to cook. The house is located in a nice little area. My sister-in-law and I ran in the neighborhood and neighborhoods close by. It was a nice area to run in. Overall, it was a nice and spacious house to vacation in, especially for a large group. I would definitely stay there again!
