Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Our Summer School Cottage (SSC) is located near downtown New Buffalo's

Beaches and Harbor. SSC provides a gated swimming pool, paddle ball court

and playground . The spacious floor plan and open spaces also

contribute to a relaxed living style. Our intention was to furnish

our home with 'pottery barn style', class and comfort in mind.

New this season: a large sectional sofa and new carpeting upstairs. In addition, interior of house has recently been painted.

The frog-filled pond and the nearby pool were great for our 3 young boys

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the home and screened-in porch. Our only complaint was an ant infestation that had us fighting ants anytime we ate. We did inform the owner of this and she advised us to buy ant killer products.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed our home and once again my apologies about the ants. With the heat, sandy soil and rain it can be a challenge, thank you for understanding

Delightful summer home

  • 5 of 5

Loved our summer getaway at this charming cottage. It has everything you could ask for - lots of space, comfort, appealing decor, and a terrific place for entertaining. The home is well-maintained, clean and has lots of extras. We especially enjoyed our days at the pool or one of the nearby beaches, and being close enough to walk downtown or take a quick ride to the casino or mall is a plus.

This is the perfect spot for someone to enjoy Michigan at it's finest. We look forward to our next visit here.

adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Love this vacation spot and adorable cottage for many reasons. The town of New Buffulo, MI. is quaint but has everything needed for a week away from Chicago, and its an easy 1 1/2 hours away.

The home we stay in is in the historic Summer School properties, situated cleverly on a cul-de-sac; giving scenic privacy, but close enough to walk to downtown and the beach. The Kaplan cottage has a great layout for entertaining with an open kitchen and family room, as well as a lovely screened back porch. Clean, and stocked with everything for a family or group of girlfriends, this is the place to stay!
