About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it.

Located in an old growth forest about one mile from town is the Cottage at New Buffalo. The like-new cottage features three bedrooms, two baths plus large loft area and is decorated in a comfortable cottage motif. Lovely flower gardens and walking paths surround the home.

The cottage is about a mile and a half from the beach which is a lovely area with ample parking. A few miles further down the road is the beautiful Warren Dunes which has a gorgeous beach.

We are close to everything but private enough to enjoy peace and quiet if desired.

Enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at this cottage many times. We always come back because we love the place. We feel comfortable while there. Love to spend the day at the pool, beach or touring and return to the cottage later in the day. Sometimes we cook there and other times go to one of the area's great restaurants. The large porch is wonderful for socializing or just reading a book. Whatever we do we always leave with the feeling "it's a good thing we found this place." The owners are also very nice to deal with.

New Buffalo Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This has been a wonderful month. I have fallen in love with this little enclave, the trees, the birds and most of all this home. It wraps it's arms around you the moment you walk in. I will truly miss these double doors that open to the screen porch. Everything was just perfect!

Beautiful gardens, complete relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! It's just a few blocks from the downtown action and beach but it seems like you're a million miles away. We sat outside late into the night just listening to the sounds of nature. The place is so relaxing.

Cottage at New Buffalo is a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this cottage and had a really great time. The house had everything we needed, the private hot tub was a nice bonus, the pool was very nice and New Buffalo was a great little town.

A week, a month, a year!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am somewhat hesitant to write how I felt about my stay at the Cottage at New Buffalo. (I'm afraid that if I want it back, it will be rented and unavailable!!!) I am a writer and was looking for a getaway nook in the woods. As soon as I walked in the door, I knew I had found the place people would dream of! Spacious, welcoming, well-appointed and a great place to relax. The great room with the corner fireplace screamed at me! The decks and outdoor areas in every direction invited me to stay and enjoy nature. The upstairs bedroom and sitting area is cosy and roomy at the same time. I planned to stay for a month and didn't leave for seven!!!! The best value in the area!!!! Seriously... take a look!

Loved this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I have visited this cottage several times and each time it gets better. The cottage is decorated beautifully and the gardens are lovely. There is a lot to do in the area and then come home to the peaceful relaxation that we so enjoyed. Seems like the stars are brighter and more plentiful in Michigan and we really enjoyed looking at them each evening from one of the three decks. One morning when I got up there was a baby deer in the yard. The restaurants, beach, fresh fruit markets, antiques, golfing and a new Amtrak train station make this cottage a true vacation destination.
