This was our second year staying at Nancy's lake house. We LOVE it!
We live in Chicago and this is such a great getaway. Only a little over an hour to get there by car, but it feels like a world away.
The lake house is in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. It truly is only a five minute walk to the private beach where there's plenty of space to spread out. We got lucky with perfect beach weather this year - not too hot, not too cold, and the lake was pristine and warm enough to swim in.
The house itself is so charming and has everything you need. Our favorite feature was the enclosed front porch. The sunlight coming through the trees makes it a really great space to hang out in during the day.
We also love the surrounding area - there are plenty of restaurants within a five minute drive. We also loved Barney's, the grocery store in New Buffalo. I have a few food allergies and was worried about what I was going to eat, but Barney's has a great gluten free section and provides a lot of options for organic and Michigan-made products.
We also recommend checking out the Warren sand dunes at sunset! There's a beach, some shops that sell snacks and souvenirs, and clean restroom facilities, so it's the perfect spot to spend a few hours and explore.
Best of all, Nan was flexible and allowed us to check in a bit early and check out a bit later so we got even more time to enjoy our stay :)
Thank you Nan, hope to stay with you again soon!
