Description Description
This sweet rental, near majestic Lake Michigan beaches, downtown Three Oaks and vacay activities galore, has comfort and class to spare! You and your guests will delight in the spaciousness and modern eclectic-meets-classic down-home furnishings and decor. Sip wine in front of the cozy fireplace, grab a primo morning coffee at the roomy stone-top kitchen island, or gather at the DR table for a meal or game. BBQ in the huge backyard, anyone? Or explore the rich, colorful local scene awaiting you!

Upon walking in the front door, the charming, coziness of the spacious living room invites you into a relaxing vacation atmosphere. With lots of comfortable seating options – including some vintage antique chairs – a gas fireplace and flat-screen TV, it’s a popular gathering spot. But then, so is the large, deluxe kitchen island, where drinks, snacks and good conversation can be shared, day or night. The island also has a built-in stovetop for turning out scrumptious vacay meals. The fully-equipped kitchen has high-end appliances and is stocked with all the essentials to help with your and your guests’ cooking needs. And the welcoming dining room features a table that seats 8, and can also be used as a work-station with excellent wi-fi throughout the house.

All of the super-comfortable rooms use top-quality bedding and linens to ensure a sound sleep and sweet dreams. Each is stylishly decorated, as well, with an emphasis on plush coziness. Given the living room has a sofa-bed, the total number of guests’ sleeping options is eight.

Bedroom 1: 1 Queen bed w/ Ensuite bathroom
Living Room: Sofa Bed


Bedroom 2: 1 Queen bed
Bedroom 3: Twin Bunk beds

The first floor Ensuite bathroom is highlighted by twin vanity sinks and an awesome clawfoot soaker tub-shower combo with a Rain-Shower head. And the upstairs full bathroom has a stylish walk-in tiled shower. There’s also a washer-dryer combo for any of your laundering needs.

The huge lawn in the backyard will greet you and your guests – kids love it, too – and the gas barbecue grill can help y’all make mouthwatering meals to tickle your tastebuds! There’s also a back porch, accessible from the kitchen, in which you can chill to your heart’s content. Three quick notes to mention: the backyard is not fenced in, but this vacation rental is pet-friendly – just let us know about your 4-legged friend when you’re booking. And you and your guests have full access to the house and yard, except the basement and garage.

Just a stone’s throw from the gorgeous shores of Lake Michigan, the super-charming village of Three Oaks is a superb vacation destination. Downtown Three Oaks offers great restaurants and cafes, tasty bakeries and stylish boutiques, plus you’ll also be able to explore nearby parks, a farmers’ market, brew-pubs, the popular Journeyman Distillery, and the much-heralded Acorn Theater, a Midwestern hub for the performing arts, featuring local and regional performers and renowned national and international artists. Our guests have raved, as well, about the natural beauty of nearby Warren Woods State Park with its lush and well-maintained hiking trails and extraordinary birdwatching opportunities. Plus there’s Granor Farm, a local organic farm that sells produce, serves meals and offers a variety of educational opportunities. Being a historic town, Three Oaks also has the Vickers Theater, a showcase for nearly a century of high-quality cinema. Another advantage of staying at The Fourth Oak is being quite near the many popular restaurants, galleries and boutique shops of downtown New Buffalo, as well as a number of truly majestic, crystal-sand Lake Michigan beaches! Plus, you can enjoy the many activities afforded by being a short drive from the region’s largest recreational harbor – including boat and other watercraft rentals, fishing expeditions, and day or evening cruises – and all sorts of woodland, lake and riverside parks with hiking and biking trails galore. Lest we forget to mention, the stunning Warren Dunes State Park is close by, with its 2,000 acres of amazing sand dunes, beachfront, wetland trails and extraordinary birdwatching! You and your guests might also relish visiting New Buffalo’s Oselka Park, which has baseball fields, playground equipment and tennis courts. And for even more variety, nearby Union Pier also has a number of other great restaurants, coffee shops and breakfast spots. Plus, being so centrally located, there are plenty of nearby fun activities to keep you busy during your vacation, including:
• Local wineries
• Art galleries
• Antique shops
• Golf courses
…and more!

Second Stay
This is the second time we have stayed here. Makes you feel like you’re at home. Will definitely go back again.

Cozy and Perfect For Winter Weekend
The Fourth Oak was cozy, pet friendly and walking distance from restaurants and shopping in Three Oaks. The fireplace in the living room is nice to warm things up on a cold winter weekend. The beds were comfortable. Antique furniture is visually appealing throughout the home, but lacks comfort for four adults to settle in for a couple of movies on a cold Sunday afternoon or sit and visit over morning coffee. The water is very hard, and though we appreciated and followed the quick fix guidance in the guest information book for clearing calcification from the faucets and shower heads, they were all due for much more in-depth maintenance. The Fourth Oak was a nice place for four adults and two dogs to stay while visiting family who were staying a few blocks away.

Perfect Relaxation and Restore
This was the perfect place for us to relax, connect, and restore. The pictures are accurate and the location perfect — close to restaurants and shops. We are appreciative of the host’s responsiveness, clear directions, and more importantly, providing a beautiful space for us to unwind.

Great Place To Stay
Awesome place right next to the distillery! Great place to stay if you are attending an event there. Ryan was quick and responsive. My only critic of the house was a lot of the furniture matches the house decor but wasn’t the most comfortable. However, we loved the porch and the cute downtown you can walk to in less than 5 min. Highly recommend!

Everything We Needed
We had a great time! The Airbnb was perfect for us as we attended my son’s wedding on Lake Michigan. It was close to everything. The house was super cute and had everything we needed. It was also nice to walk to dinner right behind the house.

We very much enjoyed our stay in this clean, cozy home. Small, local restaurants and shops were within in walking distance and beaches were a short drive away.

The House Was Perfect
The house was a perfect location to the distilleries. The home was comfortable with fans and air conditioning. My sister and I were very happy with the house. We were able to cook a nice meal for our family. We love the shower on the first floor. There were plenty of towels, blankets, toilet papers and all the necessities a house should have. Thank you Ryan!

Well Decorated
This cute home is so well decorated. We love the antique feeling. Everything is well cleaned & fully stocked kitchen utensils. Bed are comfortable! In walking distance to town & especially Journeyman’s Distillery. We would love to visit again!

The Home Was Beautiful.
Our stay was great! The home was beautiful. So well maintained and absolutely spotless. The cleanest Airbnb I’ve stayed at. Ryan had very clear checkin and checkout instructions, easy to locate and the location is perfect! Its walking distance to everything in downtown Three Oaks. Highly recommend!

Fantastic Location
The location is fantastic. Walk to downtown for restaurants, 1 minute walk to Journeyman Distillery (the tour and tasting are great). Drivable to hikes, u-pick farms, other cute nearby towns. The home itself was great for 2 adults and 3 teens. While near the main street, it was not too loud. The pictures due it justice, though it was not as light inside as the pictures show. The bathrooms were all updated. As others reviewers note, the furniture was a bit older, so if your goal is to have everyone sit in the living room and watch TV, this may be more difficult. Also, only one bedroom has a TV, so if that matters, be aware. It didn't matter to us. Ryan was a great host; responsive when we needed him, but not intrusive.

Place Was Perfect
This place was perfect in so many ways: extremely clean, spacious yet inviting, and private yet walking distance to anything you would want to do. The house had a cozy lake house feel, and everyone staying here (males and females alike) loved every minute. On top of all that, Ryan is a wonderful host and a great communicator. If you are contemplating a place in Three Oaks, look no further. You found the best choice

This Is The Place
Location Location Location! If you have an event at Journeyman Distillery and need 3 bedrooms 2 and halfs baths. This is the place. It is a updated rustic home. That is adjacent to the Distillery.

Felt Right At Home
My bandmates and I stayed at Ryan's place over the Thanksgiving weekend while playing shows at the nearby Acorn Theater. Spending the holiday away from one's family is rough, but the house made us all feel right at home. We were able to prepare a full Thanksgiving meal in the well-appointed kitchen. The host was super attentive and helpful, granting us an earlier check-in time so we could get settled before setting up at the theater. We are hopeful that we'll be able to book the house again for any future shows we have in the area.

Beautiful home in the heart of Three Oaks
We had an amazing stay at The Fourth Oak! We've stayed at several places in Three Oaks and this home was by far our favorite. Beautiful home, clean, great amenities, great communication with the host and easy check in & out. Can't beat the location and pet friendly was a huge plus for us. We will definitely book again!

This home is really cozy and adorable! Before our stay, we had a little situation with the reservation but the new hosts were extremely easy to work with. This was extremely close to Journeyman and made it easy for us as wedding guests. The home is much bigger than expected and looks just like the pictures.
