Enjoyed our stay screened in porch was a plus sat there and relaxed listening to the birds refreshing during rain storm and good location near everything
Very relaxing. Great location. We would Stay again!
Thank you for the review..yes, it is a great location 2 blocks to downtown where most of the restaurants are and 5 blocks to the beach.
Plus 1/2 block to Villa Nova Pizza...the best thin crust pizza in the area Cynthia Marquard
Great little getaway.
The house was just what we were looking for. The restaurants and shops were right there. Loved the personal recommendations for food choices.
3 night getaway
The property was exactly as described online with great internet and central air conditioning. There was plenty of room with a nice screened in porch and area to grill in the yard. It’s walking distance to the beach and town. Cynthia , the owner, was very easy to work with and accommodating. Thanks for a great weekend!
Thank you Brian...it was a joy to have your young family visit. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed the amenities that the cottage offers..close to town but privacy on the porch also.. We hope to see you back sometime . Harbor Country is a special place spring, summer , fall and winter.
Cordially Cynthia M
Booking process went smoothly for the most part and Cynthia was responsive when asked for updates in info prior to the trip.
She left a message that we could arrive at any time and the door would be unlocked. Upon arrival the door was locked and we were unable to get in for an additional 1.5-2 hours. We just did some sight seeing around New Buffalo which wasn't a big deal. Comparing the picture to what is seen on the outside is very different, landscaping needed some attention, overgrown trees/bushes, weeds, cob webs. Could tell it hadn't had much attention. Tree branches scratched my husband's truck. Once we got in, home was in desperate need of some attention/TLC.
Green carpeting has stains all over it and spots that looked like food but couldn't come off of the carpet. Flooring was peeling up, missing/broken fire detector. Still unclear if there ever was a carbon monoxide detector or if it had been taken by prior person staying there, large hole in screened in porch and door broken/large hole in door from screened in porch, bugs/cob webs in house. I contacted Cynthia regarding the fire detector and carbon monoxide detector and she came the next day to replace them and do some landscaping. She was responsive to issues yet it's concerning that it was taken care of before arrival. The home is in a great location, If the home just got a little TLC/maintenance it would be a great place to return to but as is would not go back to this home.
How sad how sad..that people do NOT appreciate a responsive owner. There was a mistake on checkin because the cleaning lady forgot to leave the door open..Within forthy five minutes we had the house unlocked. The client held on to late check as a SIN and kept talking about it the entire three days she was there.. On a HOLIDay weekend we were able to get the carbon moxide detector change.....instead of a thank you ..this client complained.. we had a check ioday with a client who has been coming for over ten years and i felt like she said it all.. She said it is so wonderful to be at this comfortable home....I am so glad that we can accomodate resonable people who appreciate owner responsiveness

a short walk away!)
