Description Description
This elegant-yet-cozy 4-BR/3+BA beach house near downtown New Buffalo, Three Oaks and Sawyer combines all sorts of first-class features and amenities: heated swimming pool, furnished screened-in porch, woodburning fireplace, a short walk/bike ride to beaches and some of the best breweries, wineries, restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and antique stores in Harbor Country! Our fully renovated, modern farmhouse-styled home sits on 3/4 acres surrounded by tranquil woods and Mother Nature's beauty.

THE SPACE
Walking through the front door to start your vacation experience, you’ll immediately appreciate the warmth and elegance greeting you and your family or guests. Vaulted ceilings, beautifully lit spaces and gorgeous wood floors draw you in and complement the richly decorated surroundings everywhere you look, given the Great Room’s open floor plan design. (Even the window views of the woods outside are amazing!) There’s ample couch space and comfy chairs for sitting in front of the fireplace to enjoy socializing or watching a show on the big-screen TV. Or stroll a few paces and grab a stool at the stone-top kitchen island for a glass of wine and a cheese platter. The kitchen is not only equipped with stainless-steel appliances, but also includes all the utensils you need to cook up your favorite meals. (Plus, we’ve stocked the pantry with goodies to accentuate whatever you prepare.) The communal dining table, made of finely finished reclaimed wood, seats up to 14 people.

And speaking of social gathering spaces, there’s an extra-large screened-in back porch looking out onto the pool area, tall trees and a nicely landscaped backyard, giving you plenty of space to stretch out and savor your every vacation moment! Plus, there’s a downstairs TV room with super-comfy couches, where you can enjoy some “me” time whenever you need it.

All 4 bedrooms are nicely appointed and highlighted by “like-sleeping-on-a-cloud” mattresses and super-plush comforters, making a peaceful night’s sleep easy-as-can-be. Each bedroom also has ample closet/dresser space to store your belongings during your stay.

FIRST FLOOR
Master Bedroom: 1 king bed
Bedroom 2: 1 queen bed

LOWER LEVEL
Bedroom 3: 1 queen bed + 1 twin bed
Bedroom 4: 2 custom-built bunkbeds
There’s also a pull-out sectional couch that can sleep 2 more guests.

When it comes to bathrooms, we have you covered. There is an attached ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower and double-vanity. Off the living room, there is a full bath with a tub. And along the hall near the foyer is an additional half-bath. Downstairs bedrooms 3 and 4 share the third full bath, which includes a tub and double-vanity, and you’ll also find a complete laundry room with high-quality washer and dryer on this floor.

Off the kitchen, there’s a nice-sized wooden deck with an outdoor dining set, plus a bistro table with two chairs for the times you want to grab a bite to eat outside. And if you want to barbecue, the high-end Weber grill will come in handy! The heated pool is dreamy, and after a swim you can relax in one of several chaise lounges or head over to the gazebo with a fire pit and Adirondack chairs alongside the pool, where in the evening you and the gang can watch the stars and sip a cup of hot cocoa!

You won’t have to look far for “things to do” in the area, since After Dune Delight is centrally located for you to eat, drink and be merry in all sorts of local high-quality spots. Some of the most popular restaurants, cafes and drinking establishments include Skip’s, Timothy’s, The Grove, Seeds Brewery, Black Current Bakehouse, Union Pier Market, Union Pier Social, Izzy’s Gelato, Red Arrow Roadhouse, and the Whistle Stop Café. But besides all of these charming places, don’t forget you can enjoy a wide variety of both winter and summer outdoor activities nearby. From skiing (including cross-country skiing), snowboarding and a variety of local festivals in winter (don’t forget to check out St. Joseph’s “Lights on the Bluff” from mid-December through mid-February) to water sports galore on and along Lake Michigan—boating, fishing, jet-skiing, dinner cruises, magnificent beach strolling, to name a few!

The location was absolutely perfect! The home was wonderful and the fenced in yard was a huge plus for the dog! We had such a great time, this is why we always stay at Junipers listings, they never, ever disappoint!

We had a lovely stay here! The house is clean and updated (matching the pics) and the location is easy to find and convenient to so much. The hosts were super warm and responsive, generally, and even showed up at the home to deliver a brand new hand mixer when I texted to see if there was one (there wasn’t) in the house! We would definitely come back, especially in warmer months when we could make use of the awesome screened in porch and the in-ground pool (not getting to use this - due to weather- is the only reason we ranked the value a 4/5 instead of 5/5… no other reasons!).

Wonderful!

The accommodations were wonderful. Kitchen was well equipped. The space was great for time with loved ones. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The beds and pillows were also extremely comfortable. It's a great location that I hope to stay at again in the summer. The Juniper team were wonderful and responsive. They even checked in on our arrival to ensure we got there safely in the midst of a storm. Highly recommend for a group of friends or family.

This property was wonderful. It was perfect for our family of 10. The pool area was great and used so much. The grands fit in a swim right before we left. The house was spacious and had plenty of room to spread out in different areas. The kitchen was very well stocked as was each room. We couldn't have asked for more. The sad part is that the vacation went too fast, but sure hope to be there nrxt summer. *During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.*

Myself and my husband had a great time and a relaxing week at their lovely home. The pool was great and we enjoyed all but two rainy days. The location is also great…a quick drive to all of our favorite spots. The home would easily accommodate more guests comfortably.We hope to be back again next year. They were very kind and responsive. *During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.*

This property was awesome! The pool was great to have in the backyard, and we loved spending time in the screened in porch. Lots of games kept us busy! The kitchen was well-stocked, and the pool shed has lots of water toys. The beach was close by, but definitely would recommend driving if you plan to take things with you. We had a great time, and enjoyed walking to Black Currant Bakehouse. Highly recommend their baked goods for a morning treat and coffee. *During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.*

We have been traveling to this area for 15 years and this rental did not disappoint! Very accommodating, comfortable beds for all 12 in our party & the screened-in porch and beautiful pool were the highlights of our week! The owner was very responsive and we had absolutely no issues- we most definitely will return in the future. *During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.*

Years ago we spent a number of summer vacations in Union Pier. This brought back memories and raised it to a new level. This property was well positioned, well furnished and very nice. The pool was great for the grand kids and kept them involved when we didn't make it to the beach. There were several public beaches a short drive away. (Walking distance if you weren't taking much beach stuff with). The location provided easy access to good walks, running and bike riding. *During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.*
