Mid-Century Home w/ a Private Pool, Hot Tub, Firepit, Ping-Pong, & More

Full of ease, light, and mid-century style, this five-bedroom home in New Buffalo offers its very own heated swimming pool and a wonderful location four blocks from the beach. This stylish space features an open main-level living area with hardwood floors, a stone fireplace, and a thoughtfully updated kitchen. Step outside to take a dip in the sparkling pool, relax in the private backyard with an expansive patio overlooking a wooded ravine, or light the grill on the large deck to barbecue while keeping one eye on the pool. When you're not enjoying the great outdoors, you can play Ping-Pong and darts in the garage, or take the provided golf cart for a spin around the neighborhood. After a night spent soaking in the hot tub, cozied up around the outdoor firepit, or watching movies on one of the two cable-equipped TVs, you'll have your choice of five bedrooms. On the main floor are one king bedroom with an en suite bathroom, one queen bedroom, a third bedroom with a pair of twin beds, and another full bathroom. Downstairs, you'll find two more bedrooms - one with a queen bed, one with two twin bunk beds - and one more full bathroom.

Things to know:
Garage is insulated, but not heated
Cornhole & dart board provided
Dog-friendly for a small, nightly fee! Non-shedding, non-aggressive, adult dogs under 50 lbs.
There are several beaches within walking distance and they are not all open at times due to the recent high water level in Lake Michigan. The plentiful beach at the dead end near Tahoma Trail/Lake Shore Drive is reliably accessible and is a short ride in the golf cart or a 15 minute walk.
Please note that the owner asks that you sign an agreement in order to use their golf cart (only available in non-winter months for safety)

The pool will be open from Memorial Day through Labor Day, with the possibility of early opening or late closing by a couple of weeks, but is completely weather-dependent and cannot be properly heated until nighttime temperatures get high enough to sustain it.

The pool will be heated to 80 degrees prior to your arrival. If you wish for the heat to increase, please contact Vacasa after you secure your booking. The cost for additional pool heat is $25/night.

Cancellation for this home must be 60 days prior to arrival.

Ferris Retreat is a great vacation home for all members of the family from young to old. The owners have carefully considered comfort and functionality for guest while continually making improvements. The new updates of additional beds, hot tub, and foosball table this year were greatly appreciated. Our favorites of Ferris Retreat are the views from the deck with a cup of coffee, large clean pool, great downstairs family room, and a living room for family members to gather and socialize. The kitchen is well appointed with cooking supplies, as we enjoy the house so much we rarely go out and eat. The owners are wonderful people and very responsive to their guests’ needs. After a power outage the owner drove from his out of state home to help with a Wifi problem and then fixed some very minor problems. The local VACASA team are also wonderful, especially Jon and Maria. During the same power outage, my granddaughter needed health treatments which requires electricity. After contacting Joh and Maria about my concerns, they reacted quickly in the middle of the night to meet her needs. Wonderful people! Overall, the weather could have been better, but vacationing at Ferris Retreat made it seem like it was sunny everyday.

The house had ample space for our family vacation which included 6 adults and 5 little ones. There was plenty of space to spread out and play, plenty of beds for everyone, TV in the basement was great and equipped with a DVD player. We brought our FireStick and had some movie nights which were perfect for the kiddos while the adults made a fire out in the fire pit! It is set in a wooded area which did not always get the best sunlight. However the hot tub came in handy during those shady times and everyone had a blast!

It was a wonderful house for family and kids. Would be great for bachelor/bachelorette too.

Thank you for providing such an amazing property for our week away. It was perfect for our family of four and my parents to reconnect. The location was secluded yet close to everything we needed and the house itself was just as advertised -- quaint cottage feel with a huge pool surrounded by trees & nature. We will definitely reach back out in the future. Thank you again!

Favorite part was the pool. Consider a queen bed in one of the bedrooms instead of twin beds. Need to post instructions in the house about using the coin operated washer and dryer - we didn’t realize it was complimentary at first.

We had an amazing experience. The house was so clean and welcoming. The owners were so thoughtful about leaving information and instructions around the house, and they even left a gift for my in-laws` anniversary. The kitchen was well stocked - we cooked every night. Loved having the ping pong table. Lots of pool toys. A truly enjoyable experience!

The pool area, fire pit and the lot backing up to the ravine really make the home so very special. We enjoyed the pool very much every day. We had friends in the area that we visited with so we didn`t do much. We did play golf one day in Grand Beach. The golf cart was VERY much appreciated! Everyone was so helpful during our stay. We had a plumbing issue that was taken care of during the stay and the gas tank for the grill was replaced quickly. We had a wonderful experience. I would absolutely stay at Ferris` retreat again!
