Property Details

(Peak season rentals: Friday - Friday with one week minimum stay)

Four-bedroom home in the woods of Camp Buffalo Cottages. Designed and built as a rental property with all the amenities for family entertainment or a romantic getaway. You'll enjoy our two floors of fully-furnished, four-season porches that overlook the woods and a landscaped, private ravine. The wooded backyard includes a large fire pit for roasting marshmallows or just snuggling with loved ones. The lower deck has a built-in hot tub and the upper deck a gas BBQ for year-round cookouts.

And just wait until you see the charming interior! You will not find a rental property in Harbor Country furnished and decorated more beautifully or warmly. The main level boasts dramatic vaulted ceilings in the family room and dining room and is accented with rustic cypress columns and trusses -- think luxury mountain lodge. The stone fireplace in the corner of the family room can also be viewed from the adjoining dining room and gourmet kitchen. The four bedrooms include two beautiful master suites, one on each level, each with majestic queen beds. Another of the four bedrooms has a bunk bed (bunk over full).

There are all kinds of entertainment features in this home. A whole-house stereo system will allow you to listen to multiple sources (Cable TV, DVD, CD or radio) in different rooms at the same time, including the porches and decks. Large flat-screen TVs with Blu-Ray/DVD will be found in the family room, both master suites and the game room. Oh, yes, the game room... The game room is furnished with matching rustic log game furniture including a large card game table, Foosball table and pub table for checkers and chess. There is also a 'Fold-a-Hoop' basketball game for those who enjoy something a bit more athletic. And for the gamers in the family, there is a Wii with four game controllers and several games for both kids and adults alike.

Camp Buffalo is an intimate community of 19 lodge-style homes constructed with logs and stone exteriors that fit well into the secluded woods. You will enjoy a community pool and clubhouse(seasonal) that are shared only by residents and renters.

The house is only a short, 15-minute walk to downtown New Buffalo and even less to the Oselka Park with baseball fields, tennis courts and a large playground for the kids. The public New Buffalo Beach is less than 3/4 mile away, and has parking for a small daily fee. Golfing, boating, jet-skiing, the Four Winds Casino, apple picking and a train museum are all a short drive away.

Bring food, drinks, personal items, and the good times.

This property is well maintained and equipped for the comfort and convenience of our guests. Our vacation rentals include well-equipped kitchens, living and dining areas. Linens and towels are provided. Homes have washers and dryers, dishwashers, central heat and air conditioning, cable/satellite television, DVD-players, high-speed Internet service, and outdoor gas or charcoal grills.

We ask that renters bring condiments, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, extra toilet paper and convenience items like plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and zip lock bags. We do not supply fire wood for homes which have wood-fueled amenities like a fire pit or a wood-burning fireplace. We do not resupply anything during the stay. We provide two rolls of toilet paper for each bathroom, 2 rolls of paper towels, 4 garbage bags, and hand soap in each bathroom -- so plan according to your needs.

Guest Reviews

Amazing Home! by Chanel D. 10/08/2020
With everything happening this year, it was critical for my friends and I to get away and relax. This home provided us the serenity and the space that we needed. The home was amazing, decor was great and the location was perfect. We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend WAYA to anyone. We decided that this will become a yearly tradition for us. Great Home!!!!!!
Awesome Spot!!! by Nicole S. 09/17/2020
The property was exactly what we were looking for! So much space and great location. We had a great time!
Beautiful, clean home and amenities by Brittany L. 08/04/2020
We absolutely enjoyed our stay! We took a family vacation amid COVID-19 and they did a beautiful job ensuring the house was clean for our family! It was a very accommodating house and was perfect for our stay. The pool was also very clean & we loved being so close to the beach, restaurants and shops in New Buffalo.
Perfect House!! by Jenny K 07/22/2020
This house was the most beautiful I have stayed at. We rent every year and this by far is the most beautiful!! Not only lovely, it had everything one could think of!! Everyone at Waya Rentals was helpful, kind and responded immediately to questions.
Great place for a get-away by Michael R. 11/16/2018
We had a couple of friends meet us at this property. The house was big enough to comfortably accommodate 3 families with children. The house included enough supplies/utensils to cook with. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived. I would highly recommend this place!
Love this place by Nathan B. 10/14/2018
Great place to stay. Our family loves Lodged in the trees. A brisk walk to town, a warm and welcoming home, a great heated outdoor pool for the spring and fall for the kids who don't mind a little cold, and a nice community place for ping pong. Thank you to the owners!
Perfect GNO Getaway!! by Dee E. 09/29/2018
Loved the appointment of this home, the location, the private setting, the cleanliness, the hot tub, and that it had 3.5 bathrooms for 8 ladies. This was a last minute rental for a Chicago mom's group whose vacation rental in Charleston, S.C. was suddenly canceled by Hurricane Florence. Ron was great to work with because he was quick to reply to any/all questions we had which made us more comfortable renting a property we had never seen. We can't wait to visit again!!
Beautiful home by Connie M. 09/09/2018
This was a very nice home. We were in town for a wedding at Journeyman Distillery so this was a perfect choice for our family. The house had everything that you could need for a comfortable stay. We appreciated the two screened porches.If you are visiting New Buffalo for the beach or to be within walking distance to the city center, you will be driving. Although the distance is only about a mile, there is no sidewalk from this location into the city.
LOVE Camp Buffalo!! by Carol B. 08/22/2018
Love WAYA rentals! We have stayed in Camp Buffalo area now 2 years in a row. It feels like we are away from everything and hidden in the woods. Yet it is a short walk or ride to everything you need. We usually rent at the end of summer, and I love hearing the local school BAND practicing as I relax on the screened in porch. Day trips to Journeyman Distillery and St. Joe are a must, especially with small children along. And of course you must go to The Stray Dog and Redamaks in town.
Beautiful! by Kerstin P. 07/17/2018
The interior of the home was decorated beautifuly, clean and stocked with all the basics to start off your trip. Onsite pool and clubhouse were very utilized and it was nice to be so close to take advantage of it, yet far enough where you couldn't tell where it was. The whole house sound system was a great surprise! It needs a bit of love on the outside, and some light bulbs replaced. Oh, side note... food shop before you get there, that market is great for some last minute things but next time, I would bulk up before I get into town.
