The space

This beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 full bath cottage has been our weekend summer home for the last 3 years but due to wrestling meets, dance competitions and various other activities we can’t make it up to enjoy it every weekend. Such a beautiful home should never be empty – so please enjoy!

Beyond rental quality and decorated with a boater motif, the house is fully equipped with linens, towels, cookware and everything you would ever need for a week away!

Dining room seats 6 and a kitchen island and counter seat an additional 6 – a total of 12 diners can eat comfortably. Bar cart makes for a nice evening for entertaining (sorry – alcohol not included!).

Kitchen features stainless appliances, shabby chic custom painted cabinetry, granite, dishwasher, garbage disposal, double door fridge with filtered ice and water, coffee maker, tea pot, glassware, indoor serving ware, outdoor plates, spices and every essential you can dream of.

Cozy family room has oversized pull out full couch, armless love seat and wing back chair. Flat screen TV has xbox attached with some games for kids and satellite television service.

HEAD - Two bathrooms have tub/shower combo

Full size washer and dryer available for use in the basement

All bedrooms have high quality linens and brand new mattresses (slept on only a handful of times).
Galley - Full Bed
Captains Room - Queen Bed
Crew Quarters – 2 sets of bunk beds (4 twins) and a pull out mattress for a 5th. Top bunks are for children under 150lbs - no adults please.

Living Room – Pull out full couch

Two patios make for beautiful evenings after a day at the beach or blueberry picking.

We have a gas weber grill for cookouts and outdoor seating for 10 (unbreakable plates and cups are also included).

Fire pit makes for a fun night of s’mores and campfire stories.

Unfinished basement has laundry facilities, foosball table, kids table and dart board.

Please feel free to use or boogie boards, sand umbrella, and some toys along with our complimentary pass to park at the public beach. Our house is yours!

Walk to oinks or our favorite Mexican dive - Rios!

Beach is a 1-mile walk (but why walk when we have a parking pass). Marina and famous Brentwood restaurant is ½ mile walk.

My favorite things to do here:
Blueberry pick (or apple pick) in season
Renting a boat or waverunner from Oselka
Walking to Oinks for ice cream
Walking to Brentwood or Rios for dinner
Running to the beach, on the beach and back
Spending a day at the Warren Dunes
Being lazy or crawling the rocks at New Buffalo Beach

Edan's cottage was super cute and perfect to host our group of seven for my bachelorette party. Great decor and plenty of space. We walked to town and had a delicious lunch at the Stray Dog. Slight musty smell throughout the house, but it went away when we opened the windows and turned on the dehumidifier. Edan was a great host and was was very quick to respond to emails. Would definitely stay again!

The home is exactly as it is represented in the listing. Close to everything. It was perfect for our family of 5. We especially appreciated the games in the house, the kiddo beach gear and the beach parking pass. Thanks for everything!

Lovely, well cared for home. Peaceful location and great yard & deck. We found biking to town and the beach easier than walking. Edan was a fabulous host, clear instructions and timely responses.

Great, classy place! We found the fire pit and grill to be our favorite parts. Plenty of kitchen supplies, towels for bath and beach, and seating for our outdoor dinners every night were perfect! We had Grandpa, three adult kids, two husbands, two babies and fit nicely in this cottage. New Buffalo is a great summer spot and the beach is quiet and not as busy as Warren Dunes, though we visited there, too.

What a great find. An older girl friend weekend. Appreciated the care taken for this property. Everything we needed was there. Would be perfect for families. The added touch of a parking pass for the beach was appreciated.

Great well kept house with everything you need to enjoy New Buffalo! 3 kids were sad to leave at the end of the trip. Great recommendations also. We spent long days at the beach and finished with great local food and ice cream around the fire pit. Would definitely stay here again!

Edan's place was fantastic for our girls trip! The house was so nice and beautifully decorated in nautical themes. The beach is a 15-20 min walk away, or a 5 minute drive - the beach parking pass is very convenient. We loved enjoying morning coffee on the house's two decks with trees surrounding. Would definitely come back - highly recommend visiting round barn winery nearby for tastings and live music! Thanks Edan!
