Property Details

New Buffalo Michigan Vacation Rental: Log cabin on 6 secluded acres with breathtaking views of the Galien River, fire pit and outdoor hot tub. Sleeps up to 10 adults and 4 children. Max occupancy: 14.

(Mid June thru Mid. Aug. Saturday - Saturday with one-week minimum stay)

Log cabin on six beautiful acres of land with over 500 feet of Galien River wrapping around the property. Conveniently located -- less than a 10-minute drive to Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, Journeyman Distillery in Three Oaks, area beaches, marina, restaurants, and golf courses.

The house offers almost 3000 square feet of living space spread out over three floors with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. An 850-square-foot deck sits off the back of the house facing the Galien River. An outdoor hot tub helps you to enjoy the winter months outside while taking in the views from the deck of the Galien River. Why not spend some time finding yourself again?

This house offers all the amenities of home—all you need to bring is the desire to relax. The interior was designed to make you comfortable and avoid that “rental feeling.” You can’t pick a better place if privacy is important—there are no neighbors within sight and the view from all sides is wooded. If you decide to venture out, you can enjoy the area by taking a five-minute trip to downtown New Buffalo where the beach is located. Visit the quaint stores, go antique shopping, or just enjoy the many restaurants, cafes, and wineries within minutes of the house. There is even a full-service day spa in the downtown area.

If you are looking for active things to do, the area offers kayak and bike rentals. Take a nice run by the lake or enjoy some of the best rolling hills for bike rides. The new Four Winds Casino is located five minutes away and the Whittaker Golf course is ten minutes from the house. You are also close to Indiana’s Lighthouse Outlet Mall.

All beds are high quality. The main floor offers the master bedroom with a king bed and a full attached bathroom with a shower but no tub. The upper level has two additional bedrooms each with a queen bed and a single bed. Upstairs you will also find a full bathroom with a shower and a tub. The lower level is where you will find the 4th bedroom which is great for the kids. The fourth bedroom has one king bed, one queen, one double, and a crib. Also downstairs you will find the lower level TV area with plenty of seating and a full bathroom with a shower but no tub.

"We continue to book our stay year after year in this beautiful home"

by Rhonda B.


The owners are always making improvements to the home and our accommodations. Ron is an amazing property manager who goes above and beyond to make your stay memorable and comfortable. This home never disappoints!!!!

"Great place for our family vacation"

by Jeff M.


Had enough room for 4 couples and 7 kids to each have their own bed. The big family room, screened porch, and outside deck each provided ample room for all to congregate. Everyone agreed the beds were extremely comfortable! Very private and scenic location in the woods. The location was also perfect for quickly getting to places that we like to visit in New Buffalo, Three Oaks, Union Pier, and Sawyer. We've been going to this area every year for 7 years now and have never stayed in the same place twice. This is one we would definitely stay again!

"A great place for a celebration"

by Jain J.


I have rented here 4 times and have had some of the best memories of my life here! This time we celebrated my retirement with family and friends. We had a blast! There's plenty of room to spread out and do various activities such as yard games, hot tub, fire at the pit, BBQ on the deck, and games at the great long table. It's also close enough to downtown New Buffalo where we went kayaking on the river, ate at Stray Dogs, and went on tours of the wineries. What a perfect place to have all the fun you want! I'll be back next year!

Great house, HUGE deck, HUGE screened-in porch. The home was clean and accommodated our large group.

"Great family get away!"

by Sheila K.


Our December weekend getaway couldn’t have been any better! The property was amazing! The location was perfect! Great communication with WAYA Rentals from the start of our booking to now! We may be making this trip a new tradition!


by Debbie C.


We had an AMAZING and peaceful time at this beautiful, clean, well stocked, private Gem in the woods! It will be our new destination when visiting New Buffalo thanks to the tons of space for my pups and the comfortable, thoughtful accommodations. The hosts were communicative and accommodating. We had a wonderful visit and cannot wait to return!

"Perfect Getaway Spot"

by Shari S.


We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at this amazing cabin. Ron was excellent to work with and responded very promptly to my emails. Property is as described. Very well appointed kitchen. Amazing and peaceful view from back deck. We loved the downstairs covered porch with the lights. This was the room whose online picture sold me on this property and it did not disappoint. Perfect place to hang out and share meals...play board games...drink wine! My husband and myself along with our adult children and their dog truly made some wonderful memories here. Thank you!

"Amazing stay!"

by Evan N.


Ron & his team are the best around. Waya's Den exceeded all of our expectations. Beautiful home and a wonderful stay. Make sure to use Waya Rentals for your New Buffalo trip!

"Just What the Doctor Ordered!"

by Alan C.


We were thrilled with the location, the privacy, and the house! Beautiful house, the river view, the spacious deck, the lower level screened-in area, and couches for days! No lack of relaxation opportunities.

House was close to New Buffalo, Union Pier, and Three Oaks. Smack dab in the middle of wine country and access to plenty of beaches. We will definitely be coming back here when the opportunity comes again.

"Great house to gather & relax"

by Greg A.


The riverfront house was everything we needed. With a large group of adults, a kid, and some dogs we were able to use all the communal spaces and made great use of the yard too.

The beds were comfortable and the house is pretty well appointed. The only item we could have used was a speaker compatible with current phone models. The water was pretty cloudy from the tap so we brought in all of our drinking water.

Would definitely stay here again, thanks to the WAYA team!
