Just Perfect!!! by Anel E. 01/11/2018

Relaxing girl's weekend! by Lindsay G. 10/16/2017
We truly enjoyed our stay at second chance retreat. The place was wonderfully decorated and very clean. The owner is clearly very organized, with things being labeled and numerous directions provided. When we had a question about adjusting the temperature of both the house and the hot tub, she was very responsive and helped us immediately. The house is also an easy walk to the downtown and the beach. If we are ever back in the area, we would absolutely stay again. Thanks for a wonderful time!
The house is amazing!! So well kept and fully loaded with anything you would need! by Laura R. 10/02/2017
We will definitely be back! This house is so wonderful! She has thought of everything, from extra beach towels to Keurig coffee pods to all kinds of kitchen appliances to a fabulous hot tub and charming fire pit. A short walk to town (didn't use our car one time!) for great food at The Stray Dog and delicious beer at Beer Church Brewery. I highly recommend this house!
Clean, cozy, quiet by Laurie W. 09/18/2017
We were very comfortable in the Second Chance Retreat -- plenty of space (we were 5 ranging in age from 16 to 87), lovely kitchen (very well equipped), comfy beds, pretty housing development. We ate and slept well (able to sleep with windows open!!) and enjoyed very much the chance to walk into town for a stroll or pick up groceries or have
a coffee. At the far end of the main street is the beach-fantastic! Most
of my family also took advantage of the hot tub (on the deck of our house), and swimming pool and ping pong in the "community center" in the housing development. Right across the street is a big park with athletic fields and a playground. It couldn't have been better!
Perfect Weekend Getaway by Kerry D. 09/17/2017
We loved the Second Chance retreat! It had everything we needed and more. The whole house was very clean and welcoming. The kitchen was well equipped for making breakfast. The fire pit and hot tub were great! I would definitely stay again.
LOVE-LOVE-LOVE!!! by Carol B. 08/17/2017
The location of "Second Chance Retreat" couldn't have been better! We felt like we were at a cabin in the woods-away from it all. Everything was topnotch, from the hot tub at the house to the pool in the "Camp Buffalo" area! Thank you to the home owner for supplying everything we could possibly need. It was just a short ride to town, the beach, Michigan City Zoo and the splash pad at St. Joseph. We were there at the end of August so I enjoyed sitting on the screened in porch for hours and listening to the band at the H.S. practicing all day long! The H.S. and football field were far away but the sound traveled across the fields.
My grandchildren said "BEST VACATION EVER"! Thanks again for a great time!!
GREAT TIMES!!! by Carol B. 08/08/2017
We LOVED this place! The location was great (a little out of town) but that's what we wanted! The house was immaculate and stocked with everything you could possibly want. It was the best time ever (according to the grandkids)!!
Perfect Getaway by Erica W. 05/17/2017
This was the perfect home for a weekend family getaway! The rental process was so simple and everyone was so great to work with. I will be recommending this home to everyone I speak to that wants to spend some time in New Buffalo. This home is in a great, quiet location and there is so much to enjoy in the home, especially the hot tub! I definitely hope to stay here again one day! Thank you so much!
Really cute house and area! by Katie 04/09/2017
House was great, well maintained. Lots of kitchen supplies, blankets, and towels provide. Hot tub was really nice too! House is walking distance from lake and downtown area. Would definitely stay again!
Perfect for Girl's Weekend by Jamie H. 03/04/2017
We had a fantastic time here at Second Chance Retreat! We had seven girls come for a nice weekend away and it was just perfect. The photos were exactly what the house looked like in person, which was great. The only thing that was slightly different was that it is right next door to another house, and from the outdoor photos I thought it was further away. This was not an issue at all, just surprised me.

There was plenty of space for us to sleep, with extra room for more people too (had there been any). The kitchen island was perfect for hanging out at as was the table and living room! The open floor plan was also great. We didn't use the four season porch, but it was cute and I'm sure nice in the summer. We used the hot tub - it was great for relaxing and the bathrooms had ample towels for everybody.

It's about a mile to town, which you could walk but there weren't (that I noticed) sidewalks, so we just did a quick drive (also, it was March and we had a pregnant friend with us, so not really ideal walking conditions). However, there are two restaurants right at the end of the neighborhood that would probably take 5-10 minutes to walk to if you're looking for something in walking distance.

Thanks so much, if you're going away for the weekend with some friends or family this is the place to stay!!!
Wonderful Home! by Jay F. 02/24/2017
The home itself is outstanding and kept in great shape, and amenities like a wonderful kitchen and well-maintained hot tub make this property fantastic for a getaway from city life. We had a great time at this property, and it made for a memorable and fun 30th birthday for my wife. Thanks WAYA Rentals!
