.

My family along with another family rented this home in August of 2012. The backyard was great with a hot tub and heated pool. The interior of the home was clean but the mattresses, bedding, and the fully stocked kitchen were all of very low quality. It is not what you would expect for $4200 a week. During our stay the gas grill was malfunctioning. We called Lake Effect and they sent over a woman with a new tank of gas. After we changed the gas and determined that was not the problem she cleaned the grill. The grill was still not functioning. We requested prior to our stay that Lake Effect sign an addendum to the contract which stated if any of the appliances in the home were not in working order during our stay Lake Effect would refund $500.00. Lake Effect refused to refund the $500.00 and charged us $200.00 for extra cleaning fees. The cleaning service said that we moved furniture, left wet towels in the pool box and used extra comforters and sheets at the rental. These were all blatant lies. Carie at Lake Effect said she would forward pictures which the maid service took. The pictures were blurry Xeroxes of photos which were not date stamped and could have been taken two years ago. I called the New Buffalo Chamber of Commerce and they had never heard of Lindas Cleaning Service and this company is not incorporated in the State of Michigan. This management company is unprofessional and dishonest. Make sure you take photos before you checkout so you can answer to any false allegations made by the bogus cleaning service Lindas Cleaning Service Do your homework (dont just take my word for it) if you plan to rent from them or it will cost you$$$$$$

UPDATE 1/18/2013: After yet another exceptional rental experience recently, we continue to recommend Carie and her team at Lake Effect to all our friends. Thanks to them, we have thoroughly enjoyed renting in SWMI =)

MY ORIGINAL REVIEW 6/28/12: We have rented from Lake Effect for years now, and we have always been very happy with Carie O and her entire staff. They are quick to respond to any questions that may arise before and during our stay. The house we are currently renting is great. When the condensate pump died after-hours a few days ago, Carie responded immediately by sending a tech out to replace it - and she also sent a cleaner out the next day to remove any remaining water from the carpet and to freshen it so the Owners would not have to worry about mold in their basement. Carie O and her team have been wonderful to work with - it is obvious that they care about both the Renters and the Owners, which can be rare in the vacation rental market. We highly recommend Lake Effect Vacation Rentals of New Buffalo.
Many thanks to Carie O and her team for their smooth coordination; and to the Owners who have shared their home with us in beautiful SW Michigan.

I visited New Buffalo Michigan the last week of June 2011. I loved the home I rented and I disagree with other reviews. Amy and Carrie both came over about an hour after we arrived and dropped off and gift to us and asked if everything was ok at the home. We were totally pleased with the home and it was exactly what they advertised. We really enjoyed New Buffalo and the quality of service provided by Lake Effect. We called and asked Carrie if she they had a spare DVD player and she brought one over within an hour of our phone call. We have recommended this company to all our friends and relatives. We have reserved the same home for summer 2012. In my opinion the quality of service provided was five stars. Thank you Lake Effect for all your hospitality and attention to our needs.

Do not rent from this company. They are very unethical. Do checking on this company before you rent
