The dining area has French doors that open to the rear deck with gas grill, patio seating area, and yard facing the meadow. The living area has two seating areas (two couches), three counter stools, a flat screen TV, DVD, and CD player.

The playground and community garden park behind the elementary school is one block away.
Three Oaks is centrally located in Harbor Country and about a ten minute scenic drive to three beautiful beaches including the New Buffalo city beach, Townline Beach in Union Pier, and Warren Dunes State Park in Sawyer. Take your pick or visit all three; they all have a different feel and amenities.
Bicycle from the door; the cottage is near the staging area for The Apple Cider Century fall bike tour and Backroads Bikeways trails. The Dewey Cannon Trading Post, which rents bicycles, is only several blocks away.
The wineries of the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail are a short 15-minute drive. Whittaker Woods, a beautiful public golf course, and the Four Winds Casino are also just minutes away.
Don't forget to explore the new Galien River County Park with its boardwalk and elevated scenic outlook.
The Yellow House provides a conveniently located charming respite with road activity in front of the house (how many times can you say you've seen a farm tractor going by your front porch)? It's located on Ash Street (also known as the historic Route 12 Heritage Trail), two lanes going through the residential area of the village that also connect the various areas of Harbor Country. The back features a lovely yard adjoining a private scenic meadow. Whether “hanging out” or for base camp, solo renters or couples will also feel comfortable with the scale. Sleeps four.
