I’m finally back from my short trip to New Buffalo, Michigan and of course, I took photos of cute bungalows and cottages while I was there. There was plenty to explore and I need to go back to this lakeside town with all its charm and character.
The super adorable modern farmhouse-style cottage above was directly across the street from our Airbnb. I’m sharing the tour of the vacation home tomorrow here on the blog so make sure you come back to see it!
Here’s another small modern farmhouse that was just two doors down from where we stayed. Super charming street with lots of trees and plenty of birds singing throughout the day.
This charmer is located right around the corner from our rental. I love the color of the siding as well as the bowed windows in front. We passed several cute bungalows and cottages on our walk into town and to the beach. We walked everywhere, which was super convenient.
With a nod to nearby Lake Michigan, this little cottage is adorned with the front end of a boat, with blue scrollwork below the porch that mimics the waves on the beach.
New Buffalo is a quiet town but still has a bit of hustle and bustle to it for the vacationers. I’ll share more photos next week of the beach, dunes, downtown, and harbor area. You may find yourself wanting to book a trip!
Owners take pride in their lake town homes with tidy yards and beautiful plantings. We passed homes like this on the way to restaurants and shops. You’ll find several vacation rentals in the area so there’s plenty from which to choose.
The fence in front of this charming bungalow caught my eye. I’ll bet this was a Sears kit house from back in the 1920s or 30s.
This cottage is a bit different than the rest with its partial stone facade and second story balcony.
The enclosed front porch on this charming yellow home is the perfect place to relax on a summer day. I’d have the windows open as opposed to running the air conditioner.
My heart was captured by this pink Victorian cottage with vivid blue trim and cute little cupola.
Last but certainly not least is a yellow Victorian-style cottage shaded by large trees.
Don’t you just love the front porch?
It sure was fun to walk the streets and enjoy all the bungalows and cottages of New Buffalo. Tomorrow I’ll feature a tour of the Airbnb cottage that we stayed in. I think you’ll enjoy seeing it!
