Dog-friendly cottage w/private hot tub, high-speed WiFi, washer/dryer, firepit

Whether you need a staycation, workcation, or a getaway, Deer Haus awaits your next adventure. The tranquil cottage is nestled in the woods and yet strikingly close to the heart of New Buffalo. Deer Haus is only half a mile from downtown New Buffalo’s restaurants and breweries, great for a bike ride. Pack up your car or continue to pedal another mile to New Buffalo’s beautiful public beach or head in the opposite direction to nearby Four Winds Casino.

Tucked in on a private wooded lot, the neighborhood’s gravel path leads you to an escape from the usual hustle and bustle. The elegantly decorated home takes its design inspiration from nature as well as a wink to an alpine hunting lodge. Deer Haus hosts bamboo floors in all the first-floor living spaces, wood blinds, granite countertops, and KitchenAid appliances. Cooks of all levels will enjoy a well-equipped kitchen and the additional convenience of a KitchenAid toaster oven with an air fryer feature. The Keurig dual pot and pod brewer will keep your crew caffeinated.

The ample open-space living room and dining area include comfortable furniture, a cozy, gas-lit fireplace, high vaulted ceilings, and a fireplace-mounted smart TV. Skylights and windows bathe the house in the warm glow of natural light. The main bed and bath as well as a guest bedroom and full bath are on the first floor. A charming third bedroom, half bath, and loft create a second-floor retreat from the rest of the home.

You’ll enjoy the serene sounds of birds chirping while lounging on the screened-in porch or choose to unwind outside in the home’s latest amenity, a six-person hot tub. Dine alfresco on the ground-level deck and end your evening with a round of smores at the rustic firepit.

The house was super clean and very conveniently laid out. Kids had their own space in the loft and made sleeping so easy! All amenities we needed for our trip were available to us!

Visiting this cottage is a long-standing summer tradition! We so enjoy the charming decor, screened in porch, and wooded neighborhood. The cottage was very clean and we had everything we needed for a relaxing few days in New Buffalo!

Loved the relaxing wooded setting of the house. The layout of the house was great. The décor was nice. Only complaints, we never could use the tv in the living room. It was logged in to another user and required a password to log them out. Tried contacting vacasa, and didn’t receive assistance.
If you like firm beds you’ll be fine, if not take your own mattress topper.

We had a wonderful time at Deer Haus! So easy to get to from Chicago. The hot tub was a highlight and the kids loved every minute of it. Everything was clean and felt like a home away from home!
