Remodeled Home & Guest House w/Free WiFi, Private Pool - Lake Across the Street!

Welcome to Great Lake Attitude! This large family pool house and separate guest house are perfect for accommodating large groups in comfort in the highly desirable Riviera neighborhood of New Buffalo. It's just what you're looking for in a vacation getaway!

Let’s start with the location which is right across the street from Lake Michigan. There's a private association beach with access points in the Riviera neighborhood. Downtown New Buffalo is only 1.5 miles southwest so you can take a leisurely walk or bike ride to town along picturesque Marquette Drive. The backdrop of the property is the Galien River Preserve which offers great views of the local flora and fauna. The in-ground, heated pool is situated behind the main house and the guest house.

The main home on the property features four bedrooms and multiple living areas. The front door opens to the hall entryway, with the kitchen and living area to the right and the main-level master bedroom to the left. The well-appointed kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, an island table with seating for six that's also useful for food prep, a large harvest table that seats 12, a gas fireplace, and a Smart TV. The adjacent living area has a TV, a stereo, and panoramic views of the river preserve and the pool, so you can keep an eye on the kiddos.

The spacious master bedroom on the main floor has both a king and a queen bed and a full en suite bathroom with a glass-door shower. The second level of the house is accessed by either of two stairways, one from the kitchen area and one in the hall entryway. The large second master bedroom suite is located at the top of the stairs, offering a king bed, a partial view of the lake, and a nicely updated full bathroom with a glass-door shower. At the opposite end of the second-level hallway is a large family bedroom with a king bed, two full beds, two twin beds, and a bathroom with a tub and a curtained-off changing area. There's also space for young children to play games, do puzzles, or make a fort on the second-floor landing.

The lower level of the house has two separate stairways, one leading down from the kitchen and one from the main entry-level hall. These stairs take you into the expansive lower-level family room, complete with a large Smart TV, a fireplace, a pool table, and a wet bar with a full-size fridge. This room is great for all ages, with large windows providing a view of the river preserve. There's also an outside door that leads to the back patio, the outdoor shower, and the pool. This lower level has the fourth family bedroom, which includes a king and a queen bed. In the uppermost level of the house, there's a cozy loft room with a wet bar, 360-degree views, and a sleeper sofa that's perfect for a youngster or a couple who might visit for a few days.

The guest house is located over the garage in a separate structure next to the main house, just steps across the driveway. You enter the guest home through the front door and head upstairs to a comfortable, second-floor guest apartment. There's a Smart TV, a wet bar/kitchenette, a mini-fridge, a full bathroom with a shower, and a king and a queen bed. There's also a balcony overlooking the pool area.

The pool provides a great alternative to the beach, as it is heated and professionally maintained throughout the summer months. There are multiple outdoor spaces to enjoy, including a flagstone seating area next to the carriage house and behind the main house.

We are a group of 20, with 10 kids ranging from 10-16. This house was in a great location for them to walk or bike to Whittaker St. There is beach access two blocks away and multiple spots to walk and watch the sunset which is great. The pool area is a nice size with plenty of seating to accommodate large groups. Screened porch is a great place to enjoy morning coffee and the gas firepit is perfect for s'mores without the mess of firewood. Our group also enjoyed the putting green in the front yard

This was a very special retreat for our family. We definitely enjoyed the pool. The many refrigerators helped as we prepared favorite foods. The waves along the beach were energizing and mesmerizing. We spent many happy hours in your home and thank you for that chance!

Great place! We had an awesome extended family vacation with the house and all its activities playing center stage. The kids went nuts for the heated pool, hot tub and pool table and took over the lower level as their base camp. The apartment over the garage was perfect for the newlyweds, allowing them their privacy as needed. The bedroom on the main level was perfect for Grandma who can’t do stairs anymore. Three generations in the house yet there was plenty of space for privacy when needed. En suite bathrooms in all the bedrooms were a major plus. The quality of the finishes throughout were exceptional, the pictures just don’t do it justice.

A great observation platform is available on the beach just across the street and we had great sunsets which everyone enjoyed. The development itself has 3 access points to its beaches as well as the public beach and harbor for New Buffalo, located about a mile away. Even bird watching out the dining room window in the morning over coffee and breakfast was entertaining with all the bird feeders full of seeds.

We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Maria, the in town Manager of the house did a super job letting us know about all the home’s features and was immediately responsive in getting us a needed pool gate key within 15 minutes during a hectic summer rental week. Thanks again. We loved this place.
