A Perfect Week at Second Chance Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have had a better stay last week in New Buffalo. The property is just gorgeous! Our two sons (ages 6 and 3) LOVED the triple bunk bed room. They didn't want to leave! The rest of us enjoyed the hot tub, bon fire pit, and horse shoes! We all appreciated the heated pool, as the lake was still a little chilly considering we were visiting in early June. The open concept kitchen, dining area, and living room space made the perfect gathering space for our crew. We'd love to stay again!

Absolutely beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 4 day stay! The house was beautiful, clean, and spacious. It was stocked with everything we needed (dishes, cleaning supplies, toiletries, etc.) We felt like we were at home. The location was great- a community pool that was never crowded, across the street from a playground, and a short walk to Redamak's (our favorite!). It was a walk or short drive to the New Buffalo beach. We will definitely be back!

We could not have been happier with our stay. Check in was easy, the house was beyond comfortable and stocked with everything you need. The location was perfect.

It was perfect for our girls weekend away and I am now looking forward to bringing my family and staying.

The owner even took the time to leave a bottle of sangria and a hand written card welcoming us, loved everything!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Property was top notch. They did an excellent job decorating and stocking the home with whatever you would need. Very homey. Be aware of the cleaning fee of $150 and administrative fee of $100 which will add $250 to the price.

The house is amazing!! So well kept and fully loaded with anything you would need!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be back! This house is so wonderful! She has thought of everything, from extra beach towels to Keurig coffee pods to all kinds of kitchen appliances to a fabulous hot tub and charming fire pit. A short walk to town (didn't use our car one time!) for great food at The Stray Dog and delicious beer at Beer Church Brewery. I highly recommend this house!

Clean, cozy, quiet

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable in the Second Chance Retreat -- pllenty of space

(we were 5 ranging in age from 16 to 87), lovely kitchen (very well equipped),

comfy beds, pretty housing development. We ate and slept well (able to sleep

with windows open!!)and enjoyed

very much the chance to walk into town for a stroll or pick up groceries or have

a coffee. At the far end of the main street is the beach-fantastic! Most

of my family also took advantage of the hot tub (on the deck of our house), and

swimming pool and ping pong in the "community center" in the housing develop-

ment. Right across the street is a big park with athletic fields and a playground.

It couldn't have been better!
