Modern cottage on a wooded lot in a small private community just over a mile from downtown New Buffalo, Michigan with three bedrooms, two baths, and a wrap-around country porch that's partially screened-in. There are two bedrooms on the main floor that share a full bath. The second room on the main floor has a queen bed and its own entrance or exit to the back porch. The master bedroom on the second floor has an outside balcony and a bath with a tub and shower. The roads that wind through the trees and the natural surroundings of the area are great for short walks or bike rides. Guests have access to the Harbor Dunes Association swimming pool.

We kindly request that guests refrain from hosting large parties or family gatherings out of respect for the neighboring homeowners, many of whom reside here year-round. By fostering a sense of harmony and consideration, we can ensure that everyone enjoys a peaceful and rejuvenating stay.

"Fabulous Rental"

by Jody T.


This house was a fabulous place for us to gather with our immediate family and extended family who live in the area. The house is wonderful, had all the essentials. It was well stocked, we only needed to buy food!

"Lovely quiet setting"

by Rona B.


The front porch served as the living room and dining room. This offset the limited living room area . One suggestion; reading lights would be a fine touch. The kitchen was well set up with cooking gear, glassware, and dishes.
A very fine property with great privacy and greenery all around.

"Great location, perfect for families"

by Daniel D.


We had a wonderful time during our stay at Chalonna Retreat. The house was a perfect vacation home for ourselves and 2 young children. The property and pool was very clean. We have always had a very positive experience with Waya and we would definitely stay here again.
