Exquisite 4BR/2BA vacation home in wooded area 1 blk from Lake MI private beach. Richly designed w/ cathedral ceilings, skylights, Great Room + fireplace, hardwood floors, curated furnishings. Hi-end pro kitchen has porcelain counters, prep island, leads to elegant dining space. All 4 BRs are chic-comfy: 3 downstairs (1 King + 2 Qn) + 1 loft-style (2 full beds). 2 BAs incl. custom tiles w/ a soaker tub in Master suite. 3-season screened porch. 2 patios w/ dining tables, gas grill + fire pit.

THE SPACE
This exquisite residence has been professionally designed and features cathedral ceilings crowned with several skylights, open social areas accented by a wood-burning fireplace, wide plank hardwood floors throughout, and specially curated furnishings in every room. The completely remodeled kitchen has porcelain counters, a large prep island, high-end appliances, and a custom tiled ceiling-height backsplash. Adjacent is an elegant dining space perfect for formal gatherings or casual family meals.

All four bedrooms are refined yet incredibly comfortable with three downstairs and one loft-style upstairs with open access to the floor below. There is 1 king, 2 queens, and the loft has 2 full beds that can sleep up to 4 guests. Two light-filled bathrooms are crisp and bright with more custom tilework and a soaker tub in the main ensuite.

Outdoor living opportunities are amazing here, as well! Surrounded by a picturesque, wooded backyard, the lovely 3-season screened porch with skylights and a cozy seating area creates an oasis of solitude for relaxing with morning coffee or enjoying a bottle of wine from one of the local vineyards. Directly off the master bedroom is a patio with a 4-person dining table and 2 chaise lounges, and additional outdoor spaces include a second patio ideal for alfresco dining with a table and gas grill, and an intimate fire pit area with Adirondack seating.

The home was comfortable and perfect for our three-day family weekend.
Airbnb
The songbird is a very stylish lakeside home only a block away from a Lake Michigan private beach. The neighborhood is very quiet, peaceful, and high-end. The neighborhood is beautiful. The home was clean and had all the amenities listed. It's only a 5 minute drive to downtown New Buffalo where there are many nice restaurants and shops. The home was comfortable and perfect for our three-day family weekend. The host is very responsive and attentive to needs.

Charming
Airbnb
The Songbird is completely charming, from the lovely decor to the thoughtful touches like a Christmas tree set up during our holiday stay! The home is spacious, airy and full of light and the neighborhood with lake access is beautiful. We cannot wait to return!

Highly recommend!
Airbnb
We highly recommend The Songbird! This home was spectacular. The attention to detail was obvious. From the welcome treats, well stocked kitchen, dog accessories, every room immaculately clean and the cozy comfy decor. It had everything you could possibly need. The hosts of this property were extremely responsive. The location was also great. We enjoyed dinning in New Buffalo and the short walk to the beach. We even saw a pair of Eagles! Our winter getaway was perfect thanks to The Songbird! We would definitely return!

Great house & location
VRBO
My family just finished a stay at this house and enjoyed it. It’s a short one block walk to the trail leading to the stairs down to the beach. Because it’s a private beach it’s very quiet and relaxing with no crowds to contend with. The house was nicely updated with thoughtful touches throughout. We especially enjoyed the screened patio. Only issue during our stay was the lack of a bunk bed in the loft which was included in the listing. Ultimately the number of beds was sufficient for sleeping 8, not sleeping 10 guests as this listing indicated. We used a blowup mattress for our 9th & 10th guests. Otherwise this is a great property in a great location!

Perfect Beach Cottage
VRBO
We were able to enjoy a nice walk to the community's private beach to dip our toes in Lake Michigan, lounge in Adirondack chairs encircling the fire pit in our own side yard, grill pork tenderloin on the back deck off the dining room, and sleep deeply in very comfortable beds - a peaceful, relaxing getaway. Wouldn't change a thing.

Amazing Property
VRBO
The property was excellent. Well equipped kitchen, toiletries, and beautiful views. So much to do in the area, we enjoyed hiking, the beaches, shopping and some great restaurants nearby. The area has a lovely wine trail. The communication was excellent with simple check in/out procedures. We look forward to returning soon!

House was adorable. Loved the screened in porch. Close to private beach access and not far from town.
