About ying wehrenberg

We are a family of 4. This is our weekend house and we enjoy Grand Beach tremendously. We love to travel and always choose to do that during the summer months. So, we want to share our beautiful house with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why ying wehrenberg chose Grand Beach

Unique mix of tree house in the woods and beach house. Literally walk down the steps to the private beach yet also enjoy the peace of the woods atop the dune - best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the house because of the view and secondly for the unique feeling of being in a tree house in the woods while also being at the beach.

New Buffalo is just five minutes by car and a lovely Harbor Country town with plenty of restaurants, galleries, and activities throughout the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The view was beautiful and the home very comfortable... a lovely"

The view is fabulous and the house is very comfortable with a nicely renovated kitchen and baths. The beach in this area is fairly narrow, but a short walk to the north or south allowed for more area to set up 'camp'. This was a very relaxing place to stay with family.

Not what we expected.

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful home on a high bluff. Not the bluff closest to the lakefront however. There is a road and another row of homes between this home and the lakefront. "Lakeview" is an accurate description but not "Beachview or Lakefront". It is not on the lake front and there is no beach to speak of. Only big rocks that are very hard to get to. Requires a hike. Any memorial weekend all the of Beach Access paths were closed because there was nothing to access.

That master bedroom upstairs is very nice but the lower level bedrooms were very basic and didn't compare at all to the master. That was hard when sharing the home with friends and all are paying the same to stay. A/C efficiency is very different on the 2 floors. Main level very warm. Coudln't adjust thermostat below 68. Grand Beach community is very nice and has great offerings (tennis, kids park) including the golf course of which we played. Wish we had a better report. Maybe Grand Beach will rejuvenate the beach soon. The rental price was high for a home not on the beach or at beach level.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that our property did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, there was no beach left during Memorial Day weekend when you stayed. However, the beach level is changing all the time. Even though there are some properties below our house, the beach access is directly down to the beach without going through the houses below. We are happy to announce that the beach by our property is back again! It's a small area, but a very private beach!

Beautiful home - beautiful view of the lake

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a fun family vacation and much enjoyed the home, its unique architecture and beautiful views of the lake. My son and law, future son-in-law and I enjoyed playing 9 holes at the Grand Beach golf course. We were also able to access the beach off of Sun Valley Lane. It's close to many attractions in the area and we hope to return again someday soon.
