Sweeping views of the tranquil Galien River Preserve await at Harbor House, a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom home that offers privacy, seclusion, and a gorgeous wetland setting without sacrificing the convenience of proximity to downtown New Buffalo. Whether you’re catching the sunrise over the river from the vast decks or gathering with family in one of several common areas, Harbor House is certain to be an exercise in relaxation. The focal point of this home is the expansive wrap-around deck overlooking an enormous swath of preserved wetlands that's alive with nature and bird life. It's a birdwatcher's paradise, where you can sit with a pair of binoculars, soak up the sun in a lounge chair, or even light the gas grill for lunch or dinner outside at the patio dining set. There's also a well-furnished and shaded screened porch that opens to the patio deck, so you can still enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while keeping cool and out of the sun. The house itself is modern, up-to-date, and impeccably cared for, offering such at-home comforts as cable TV, high-speed WiFi, and high-quality furniture and appliances. On the main level, the primary living and sitting room overlooks the preserve, with tremendous windows that bathe the home in natural light and seem to bridge the separation between the indoors and outdoors. The wood-burning fireplace offers cozy ambience for those rare cool summer nights; it's even better during the spring, winter, and fall. The open kitchen and dining room is just off the living room, featuring a large dining table for entertaining as well as a breakfast nook and island bar. The lower-level family room is a great place to break off and spend some time, with a big-screen TV, a DVD player, and a foosball table. This space provides wonderful entertainment on rainy days; it's also a good spot to let the gamers in your group hook up to the TV. At night, you'll find the first bedroom on the main floor, decorated in French country style. It features a queen bed, an en suite bathroom with a jetted tub, and access to the patio if you wish to sneak out at night for a look at the stars. The upper level of Harbor House has a loft office with view over the living room and out towards nature, as well as the second and third bedrooms. The second bedroom has a queen bed, a private shower bathroom, and south-facing windows that make use of natural light without serving as a wake-up call at sunrise. The third guest bedroom has a king bed, its own private shower bathroom, and direct access to the smaller second-floor deck - the perfect spot for enjoying a cup of coffee while watching the sunrise color the sky above the river. The fourth bedroom is on the lower level, with a queen bed and access to a full bathroom. There is also a large air mattress in the downstairs closet. As for location, the house sits at the end of a quiet road with little traffic, but still only a few hundred feet from the Stray Dog Saloon, so you can always call ahead and place an order if you don't feel like using the kitchen. New Buffalo Beach is just steps away (800 yards from the front door), so you can easily walk or drive and park, whatever suits you and your group best! The rest of downtown New Buffalo is equally close as well.
