Sans-Souci is a great quiet, romantic getaway. My wife and I have been staying there for over 10 years as a winter getaway. The room was very comfortable and roomy with a fireplace and whirlpool bath. We enjoy the seclusion, quiet and the large variety of birds at the feeder. Breakfast is no longer provided, but there is a great grocery store in town for snacks & liquor. Local restaurants are also very good. The Four Winds casino is very close for those interested. We go to Sans Souci for the quiet and relaxation as well as walks to the lake and through the woods on the property. The host Angie has always been very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend Sans Souci for a romantic, secluded getaway.

This is my favorite getaway! Perfect accommodation on a perfect property! A cozy 1 bedroom cottage with a fabulous fireplace, complete kitchen, washer & dryer and a luxurious jacuzzi. All of this nestled on a beautiful estate with a lake. Best of both worlds; you are close to several towns with wonderful shops & restaurants, or bring everything with and never leave the property! Angie & staff are awesome. Dog friendly Too!

Pleasantly warm suite set back off the road provided a nice getaway to our busy lives. The Kingfisher is a charming B&B-type suite with a comfortable bed and a cozy whirlpool tub for two. Angie was a friendly hostess and her son Christian was very helpful in describing the varied eateries in New Buffalo. We will return.

There was no breakfast, so I'm not sure why it is listed under Bed and Breakfast, and there was no maid service, but our suite was very spacious and clean, and there were plenty of towels and a laundry basket for them. The campus of Sans Souci is very beautiful and very quiet. We would definitely stay there again. I was forced by the review to rate the dining, and since there was no N/A to use as a rating, I put 1 star since there was no dining.

Angie was very accommodating to us and our dogs! The sunrise cottage is perfect for a long weekend of resting and relaxing. The property is great. The lake is nice, row boats are cool, fire pit is adorable and private screened in porch is a treat! We enjoyed the proximity to Three oaks for antique shopping and New Buffalo for water front dining. (proximity to 4 Winds casino is nice as well). We cant wait to come back in the fall to see the leaves change color!

The cabin was clean but VERY outdated. The pictures on the website are many years old. The property has not been maintained. The long walk around the lake is actually a bug infested walk around an overgrown pond. We were there for no less than 20 minutes when we got to watch the owners family take a dip into the pond. At least they were wearing swimsuits when they got in. My wife and I had the privilege of watching a grown man totally disrobe as he slowly dried himself and redressed. Wife and I had to spend almost all of our time inside.

My son and I have been visiting Sans Souci since he has been a baby. Summer 2014 will be our 13th year! What started out renting one cottage is now two cottages for at least a week during the summer months. We have family & friends visit, rotating during the week + vacation. The "cottage" is a haven where we take daily am/pm walks around the lake, enjoy sharing the days adventures with nightly lakeside campfires, play volleyball or baseball in the open fields, board games in the gazebo, watch the turtles, birds, deer and take in all that nature has to offer. The morning mist rising from the lake still captivates me. The "cottage" is true family time together. It amazes me, especially with a teenager, that he and his friends like to hang out at the beach during the day; swimming, rafting, row boating, playing in the water or a game of horse shoes and never turn on an electronic device (yeah!). We often take a day to the New Buffalo beach, State Line Stables for horseback riding and blueberry picking. As my son gets older, he may not want to visit any longer but the family tradition of the "cottage" will be part of his childhood forever. We have made great, lasting, beautiful and fun family memories. I guess anyone could make a negative comment, nothing is perfect, but hearing my son, his friends and my mom ask "when are we going to the cottage this year" is music to my ears. Thanks Angie for making your home our home, having our dogs enjoy the cottage adventure too and making this our family tradition throughout the years! .
