New Buffalo Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Maganged by WAYA RENTALS Vacation Rental Agency !! This newly constructed log home is rated a top rental in Southwest Michigan for the last 8 years straight.

The property sits on six beautiful wooded acres of land with over five hundred feet of Galien River frontage, offering privacy while still just a five minute drive from the downtown New Buffalo area.

The home has over 3000 sq.ft of living space that is spread out over three floors, with four bedrooms plus a full lower level with a queen sleeper sofa. You will also find a bathroom on every floor. An 850 sq. ft. custom built deck sits off the back of the house facing the Galien River. Enjoy the winter months by relaxing in a newly added outdoor hot tub with views of the river. Why not spend some time finding yourself again !!

The house offers all the amenities of home - all you need to bring is the desire to relax. The decorating was done to make you comfortable and avoid that 'rental feeling.' If privacy is of importance, you can't pick a better place - there are no neighbors and the view from all sides is wooded. If you decide to venture out, you can further enjoy the area by taking a five minute drive to downtown New Buffalo where the beach is located. Visit the quaint stores, go antique shopping, or just enjoy the many restaurants, cafes, and wineries within minutes from the house. There is even a full service day spa in the downtown area.

If you are looking for active things to do, New Buffalo offers kayak and bike rentals. WAYA RENTAL also offers BOAT AND WAVE RUNNER RENTALS to renters staying at one of their homes. Take a nice run by the lake, or enjoy some of the best rolling hills for bike rides. The new Four Winds Casino is located five minutes away, and you are close to Indiana's Lighthouse Outlet Mall. Whittaker Golf course is also ten minutes from the house.

Why Ron Morales(owner of Waya Rentals) or Maria chose Southwest

For over 14 years I have been enjoying the New Buffalo area. The proximity to Chicago makes it one of my favorite places to go. In 2006 I decided to buy a home and start my business as a realtor, and a vacation rental specialist. I specialize in helping others find a great second home or just a exceptional place to stay for a short period of time.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is the only home I have seen in the area over the last decade with a view like this and I am a New Buffalo Realtor so I have seen a lot of homes. The Galien River view rivals a view of Lake Michigan especially in the fall and winter months

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stay at a truely rare find in New Buffalo Michigan. This cabin is nearly 2400 sq.ft. with a queen bed in each of the three bedrooms and a bathroom on every floor. The house sits on six wooded acres of land with your closest home about a football stadium away. The house is located five minutes from Downtown New Buffalo where you have the lake Michigan beach and many great restaurants and stores. The area also has a great day spa and a place to rent kayaks and bikes. Come stay at a beautiful home located just minutes away from a little bit of everything. Please do not hesitate to call even if it is just to ask questions.

Thanks, Ron 312-952-8361

Great cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with my parents and our two kids at this great cabin. The cabin is very nice. The kitchen is full of dishes, pots, pans, and any kitchen utensil you could need. There is a great deck with a hot tube and grill off the back off the house that overlooks a river. It's a great place to spend some time. There is also a big yard with a nice fire pit and some playground stuff which is on the small side but works well enough. The beds and furniture are nice too. The downsides are that the water has a sulfur smell to it so we only drank bottled water, the dishwasher always falls off the tracks (a minor nuisance really), and you can always hear cars on the highway (also not that big a deal). There's also a train going by every few hours which I liked, but it might bother some people. If they fixed the water smell thing it would be as close to perfect as makes no difference.

Owner's Response: William, I am glad overall you had a great stay !! We will take your comment Close to Perfect as a plus any day. Sorry but the entire area has well water. We do have a water softener and a system that eliminates most of the well taste but I agree city water is best. I would advise anyone that is a big water drinker to bring water. Well water is not harmful but does have a different taste compared to city water. Ron Morales( Owner)

Impressive Log Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect place to escape with family and friends from the hustle and bustle of the city. We all had the chance to really unwind and enjoy the Galien River, Lake Michigan, and the surrounding nature. Can't wait to go back in the Fall!

We will come back again!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to bring the family for a vacation. This home has breathtaking views of the river and is surrounded by nature. It truly was a full log cabin experience. Everything in the home was impressively decorated, cozy and made for a perfect vacation. Lots of open space, clean, comfortable and well maintained furnishings. We had lots of yard space, and were able to enjoy the outdoors the whole vacation. When we went to check in at the Waya Rentals office, we were greeted by staff who really loved what they did. They shared information on the area with us, and let us know if we needed anything to call or email. We did have to call and ask a few questions, and they were prompt to answer the questions, and went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful. We will come back to see the fall colors. We want to be able to enjoy the wood stove and hot tub surrounded by the leaves when they change colors. GREAT HOME!!!!

Bachelorette perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with 12 girls for a bachelorette party. We walked in and just knew that it would be the PERFECT place for a great weekend. This cabin is darling in every way, with great views of the creek, as well as an amazing deck for entertaining! There is not one thing we could find wrong with it to be honest. We couldn't get the hot tub to be hot, so we called and someone came over right away and fixed it for us. I would recommend this cabin for any occasion!
