About the property

WINTER REMODEL! NEW BATH AWESOME HUGE MIRRORS, 4' SHOWER DUAL CONTROLS & TEMPS

Centrally located one block south of Hwy 12 and just 8 blocks from the beach, The Surf House is walking distance to everything! Leading edge technology with nostalgic charm, The Surf House is ideal for everyone, this home is decorated in hues of blues, greens and tans reminiscent of the shores of Lake Michigan. Three spacious bedrooms, a charming loft with two twin beds, and two large bathrooms are filled with plush linens, pillows, rugs and towels. This house offers a beautiful blend of character and modern amenities from the cozy swing on the peaceful front porch to the fully equipped kitchen. Fourth bedroom loft offers two twin beds that may be converted to an additional king bed upon request and the living room has a queen-size sleeper sofa.

Located next door to Lookout Landing shops (with Song Asian Cuisine👍🏻)and Oink’s Ice cream, we are in the heart of Southwestern Michigan’s many water and land activities.

The Surf House is a casual stroll to all the quaint shops and eateries along Whittaker Street, the main road to New Buffalo Beach. A few blocks more takes you past the river harbor filled with the hustle and bustle of boating enthusiasts to the sandy beach on magnificent Lake Michigan. Beach chairs, towels, a children's wagon with two seats and a stroller are all provided for your convenience.

For inland fun, The Surf House offers information on an abundance of local activities for adults as well as children of all ages. There are outdoor events like concerts, movies, a splash pad, basketball, skate boarding, organized Frisbee games, playgrounds, nature walks, hiking etc. Some folks are drawn to other local attractions like the several golf courses in the area, wine tastings and festivals at nearby wineries, live theater, the excitement of the Four Winds Casino or the Blue Chip Casino, or perhaps the sporting events at Notre Dame stadium(only 36 miles away).

In order to be your best home away from home, The Surf House has central heat and air conditioning, Comcast high speed 75MBPS+ internet, the Comcast expanded channel package, STARZ movie package and the sports entertainment package, and large flat screen TVs with DVD +/- Blue Ray players in every room (the loft does not have a dvd player).

Whatever your interest, or whatever the season, New Buffalo and The Surf House welcome you warmly and are ready to be your vacation destination.

About Pokorny Rentals

The Surf House is managed by Pokorny Rentals. For information and reservations, call 1-405-420-2001.

The Pokorny Family came to New Buffalo from Chicago in 1932. Gramp's blacksmith shop evolved over the years into a plumbing business. His son, Charles, eventually added a hardware store that grandson, Richard, later converted into The Lookout Landing shops. The Surf House is part of our family history and for many years was home to the "3rd Coast Surf Shop" now located on Whitaker Street downtown.

Why Pokorny Rentals chose Southwest Michigan

In 1954, when the Village of New Buffalo Chamber of Commerce first began to improve the harbor, Charles Pokorny proposed the simultaneous development of the beach and park areas. In 1955, an official Park and Recreation Department was established and Charlie was asked to serve as New Buffalo's first Park Commissioner. His team built playground equipment from plumbing pipe, build picnic tables, initiated fireworks at the lake front, and brought about the return of concerts in the park.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Surf House, with the flavor of beach grasses and calm lake colors, carries on our Pokorny family legacy. We welcome you to join with us in the spirit, history, and charm of this lakefront community.

Amazingly fast Wifi

  • 5 of 5

I spent 10 days at the surf house. The place was great. It was fully equipped and met all of my expectations. The house had extremely fast wifi. I checked the speed of the internet on my phone and it ran a little bit faster than 160 MB/Sec. I watched Netflix on the TVs every night. The TVs also have every single channel you could want. I watched many of the March Madness games. I am definitely coming back to this house during the summer and whenever I am back working in this area!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to the area and have found our new favorite place to stay. Our latest visit had us arriving in early February, so you can imagine how cold it was outside, the Surf House was warm and inviting. The house was a great fit for our young family, with plenty of room for our kids to play. Our kids really enjoyed all the house had to offer toys, games, multiple TVs, DVDs, DVD player and the Wifi. The whole family is looking forward to the next time we can book a stay at the Surf House.

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked in the door I knew we'd made a great choice. A charming bungalow, beautifully decorated. This place was immaculately clean. Kitchen was stocked with everything you'd need and linens were comfy and clean. Plenty of room for our family of 5. We so enjoyed that cozy front porch. Really unique ice cream shop, Oink's, literally across the street, 3 blocks to a very nice grocery store and a short 15-20 min walk to down town restaurants and the beach. Would love to come back again!

Very lovely place to stay1

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house as soon as we walked in the door. It was very clean, spacious, comfortable, and cozy. We were also concerned about having one bathroom , but it was a nice size and it worked . Really enjoyed hanging out on the front porch too. We would stay again.

Perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location; it's an easy walk to downtown NB. Additionally, we really liked the layout of the house. It's very open and spacious, and the large front porch was great to have as well. We were a little concerned at first about having just the one bathroom, but it is a HUGE bathroom with double sinks so it was just fine. We would definitely rent again.

New Buffalo schools offer free access to outdoor activities as well. New Buffalo High School, 1112 East Clay Street, has a skate board area and a volleyball court. The elementary school at 12291 Lubke Rd has 2 amazing playgrounds and a basketball court. These are easy, free, and age appropriate things to do in small, unstructured blocks of time. You do need to bring your own sport equipment to use at these places

New Buffalo provides activities to delight the child in all of us. To help you find information on your special areas of interest, we provide a 3-ring binder full of data we have gathered on local events, activities, sights, restaurants, shops, etc. We hope you choose 'The Surf House' for your vacation and that you have a wonderful time!
