Log cabin on six beautiful acres of land with over 500 feet of Galien River wrapping around the property. 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. A newly added outdoor hot tub helps you to enjoy the winter months outside while taking in the views from the deck. 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.

Visit the quaint stores, go antique shopping, or just enjoy the many restaurants, cafes, and wineries within minutes from 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 house is beautiful! We found it to be so clean. We were comfortable to sit back and relax. There were things to do even though it was cold outside. Sleeping 14 comfortably. My family thoroughly enjoyed the weekend.
Great for large groups!
by Andrea S.
There was tons on space for our large group of 9 adults and 4 kids. There was plenty to do both at the home and around the area. We had a blast! My only complaint is that I wish a larger table or a second table were on the top deck. It would have been nice to all eat dinners together in one location instead of splitting up. Even the large table inside wasn't big enough because there wasn't enough seating. Also, you might want to let people know about the bad water taste/smell so they can buy bottled water before they arrive. Other than that we loved everything!

This was the perfect house for a family with children. There was a crib for our 1 year old and bunk beds for our 3 year old. Every thing was VERY clean and quiet. We loved sitting on the porch and watching the kids play. Perfect getaway!
Great updated house
House was perfect size for our needs. The upstairs deck is perfect for entertaining and the screened deck below is a great alternative for kids or if the bugs/weather are bad. Everything in the house is updated nicely, the AC is solid and the yard is great for outdoor games. Only downside: we were unaware of the tap water quality before arriving. Sulfur smell and salty taste. Be sure to bring plenty of bottled and gallons of water, unless you like salty coffee in the morning! Overall awesome and well-maintained property that's a nice respite from the bustle of town during holiday weeks.

Wonderful house. Lots of space for all 10 of us to fit comfortably. The river and back deck are absolutely beautiful. Great location close to Four Winds Casino and the rest of New Buffalo. Highly recommend!

Beautiful house, great location, only an hour from Chicago. The hot tub is amazing and just pure nature surrounding the house.
We had an amazing time at this rental. It was a perfect fit for us. We had an issue with the hot tub and the owner came out to fix it promptly. He couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Thanks Ron!

Rented the cabin for a guys weekend and it perfect! Had plenty of room for everyone to sleep in their own bed, hangout during the day, and eat group meals. The cabin was clean, the beds are comfortable, deck is huge, and the bathrooms are nice too. The only thing we would have like to seen is a large screen TV upstairs above the fireplace so that we could watch TV upstairs as well.

We loved our stay at the house. The kitchen is well-equipped, there are lots of options for down-time like foosball, card table, fire pit etc. The space works well for a larger group, with its two master suites (with nice stone showers and comfortable beds); bunk bed room and full bedroom. The enclosed porches add extra space with space heaters. We also loved the outside hot tub and spend time in it even though it was February. We will definitely be back.
Impressive Log Cabin!

This home is the perfect place to escape with family and friends from the hustle and bustle of the city. We all had the chance to really unwind and enjoy the Galien River, Lake Michigan, and the surrounding nature. Can't wait to go back in the Fall!
We will come back again!

We couldn't have asked for a better place to bring the family for a vacation. This home has breathtaking views of the river and is surrounded by nature. It truly was a full log cabin experience. Everything in the home was impressively decorated, cozy and made for a perfect vacation. Lots of open space, clean, comfortable and well maintained furnishings. We had lots of yard space, and were able to enjoy the outdoors the whole vacation. When we went to check in at the Waya Rentals office, we were greeted by staff who really loved what they did. They shared information on the area with us, and let us know if we needed anything to call or email. We did have to call and ask a few questions, and they were prompt to answer the questions, and went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful. We will come back to see the fall colors. We want to be able to enjoy the wood stove and hot tub surrounded by the leaves when they change colors. GREAT HOME!!!!
