Información sobre este anuncio

Lovely vintage 2-BR bungalow located in the heart of Harbor Country. Within walking distance to restaurants, shops, & beautiful Lake MI. Perfect get-away location for a couple, two couples, or a small family. Relax & reconnect with those you love.

El alojamiento

It is a professionally appointed place but, unlike some spaces that are professionally done, it is relaxing and unpretentious while still being beautiful. Guests tell us they come away feeling refreshed.

Servicios y zonas comunes

We are only seven blocks from Lake Michigan. Most of our guests walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants, year-round!This is small town life at its best.

Atención a los huéspedes

Our family is only a few doors away and usually always available to help and offer recommendations for fun things to do and good places to eat. We are also just a text away in case of emergencies. On the other hand, we do recognize that some guests prefer their privacy and try to respect that. When we have guests staying at the cottage, we will not show up there just to sit and chat. Most of our guests come from the big city, lead very busy lives, are not necessarily lonely, and come to "get away from it all." If our guests want us to spend time with them, they will need to make that request known. I can count on one hand the number of times that has happened.

Otros aspectos destacables

We want our guests to enjoy their time in our little bungalow and will do what it takes to see that the goal is accomplished. Our favorite guests are the ones who return year after year! We invite feedback as to how we can add to the overall experience the Storybook cottage and hope that all our guests will sign our guest book telling us that their time at the cottage was extraordinary.

We want our guests to respect our cottage and treat it well. After all, it's been in our family for over fifty years and it is the place in which we will probably retire when the time is right. We also like pretty things and would be sad if our guests had sticky fingers or were purposefully destructive. We are happy to report that that has not been our experience. We really do have the nicest guests--if it were not so, we'd have stopped sharing our home years ago!

Truthfully, our dog policy is the thing we struggle with the most. For seven years or more, even though we ourselves are animal lovers, we had a strict "no pet" policy at the cottage. Our own dog has never been allowed inside! However, we do realize that some dogs are really a huge part of their owners' lives and we have made a few exceptions to the guest who seems to understand the risk we take and can assure us that their dog will not go unsupervised in the cottage at any time. Whether we continue to consider exceptions to this "house rule" remains to be seen. While not big on "rules," our goal has always been to offer a clean and beautiful getaway (with a four hour turn around time) to all our guests, present and future. We ask, in return, that you are understanding about our pet policy and NOT ask to bring your pooch unless you trust him or her without the slightest reservation.

If you are planning a vacation to New Buffalo, you will want to book the Storybook Cottage right away! My husband and I stayed here with our 20-month-old daughter in early June 2017, and we were delighted by the decor, the cleanliness, the prompt and personal communication with Rebecca, the comforts provided (soap; bath bubbles; all the cooking tools you could need; kitchen extras like sugar, salt and pepper, dish soap, and even coffee; plush towels and washcloths; extra pillows; super-fast wi-fi; games; puzzles; tons of books; and even some kids toys), the proximity to the downtown area and the beach, and the privacy of the charming front porch. Even with a toddler, we found the layout of the house and the decor to be safe and clean for all her running around; there were only a few items that we had to move out of reach. The large front porch has plenty of seating, and it is hidden from view of the street and neighbors by large trees, large hydrangeas, and a climbing rose bush, so this is a charming space where you can spend a lot of time enjoying lazy mornings or late evenings (there are even some candles in the pantry). The interior is also very comfortable and inviting with a sectional sofa and ottoman, a fireplace (we didn't use this), a dining table, and a large piano. The two bedrooms each have a dresser and a large closet; and the single bathroom is clean and well appointed with everything you might need within reach and some space for storing your own items. The entry is coded/keyless, so you don't have to worry about losing a key. The advertisement is accurate: you are only a 4 blocks to the downtown area and 7 blocks to the beach. The New Buffalo public beach is large and clean, and we went there every day. Even though the water is cold in late May/early June, the beach is still a fun place to spend time. There's a very clean public restroom facility right on the beach, and parking (for a $12 fee, I believe), but we walked every day because the Cottage is so close there was no need to drive anywhere (bring your stroller if you have young kids). We will be returning to the Storybook Cottage! The price is reasonable, the descriptions are accurate, and the space is welcoming and comfortable. The town is an excellent family vacation spot or romantic and relaxing getaway location, and the Cottage provides the perfect accommodations for a small family or group of friends. Rebecca lives only a few doors down, and she was extremely helpful before the trip (making recommendations), prompt to reply to me during the trip (we had a question about the wi-fi upon arrival), and helpful afterwards when I contacted her for the paint color in the living room (because it is GREAT). However, we never actually met Rebecca because she respected our privacy during our trip. This...

I would not attend New Buffalo again, but not because of this cottage alone. This was bigger than a hotel room and decently close to the beach, but hotels would be more comfortable. The town itself was pretty rude in General, and everything shut down at 5pm. Police watched the house, I assume to make sure we were safe, but pulled us over as soon as we left a parking spot because I was putting my seatbelt on. The cottage itself was cute and would be perfect for an older couple. To us, it was very much secret garden. If you're into quiet reading or game playing with a bit of nostalgia, this is your place. Very much a house from the 50s, down to the details. It was uncomfortable to us, but it could be great for another couple.

I'm sorry that our town and our cottage did not live up to your expectations, Hannah. We wanted you to have the PERFECT honeymoon to remember all the rest of your days too! Yes, we are catering to those who want a place to kick back, rest, relax, and reconnect. Although there is much to see and do in New Buffalo and the surrounding Harbor Country, it is definitely not a town for jet-setting--HA! Thanks for your description of the cottage being a "secret garden." That is the feel that we are going for and have plans to enclose the back yard similarly to the front yard soon. Thanks for taking care of our house. If you ever have friends who you think might enjoy something quaint in the future, please tell them about us. We do wish you the best.

Rebecca and Bill were wonderful hosts. There was a little issue in the kitchen, but it quickly addressed. The house is just as cute as it looks and the porch was the big selling point for me! My friends and I spent some serious time out here enjoying the breeze and sun. Although the house is very close to downtown and the main road, it's sort of situated in a way that it seems pretty secluded and when you are on the front porch, you don't feel exposed. You can't beat New Buffalo and the cottage compliments this quaint community perfectly.

This place was great for our quick getaway! The house had everything we could need throughout our stay (towels, kitchen fully stocked, even soap if you forget yours). We went during the off season so it was pretty chilly, Rebecca offered us plenty of suggestions of where to go via text and had a full bowl of pamphlets from places around. The house is in a great location, on the nice days that we had it was about a 10-15 minute walk to the downtown. Great house that's perfect for a relaxing getaway with easy access to the main streets to drive and downtown.

You will love your stay in this quaint cottage. The bedrooms are small but have a lot of closet space. The kitchen is more than adequate to prepare light meals, and the living room is cosy and bright.
