Timber Lane Estates is an exclusive beach front community of premier privately owned homes located on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. Our homes feature underground utilities, Lake Michigan water and easy access to our private beach. This area is known as the "Sunset Coast" for its amazing views of sunsets over Lake Michigan's sparkling waters and its sandy beaches. The community is located on a large 3100 foot private beach to which all owners have deeded access. Our community is very close to New Buffalo one of the premiere resort cities in Michigan. New Buffalo features premium lodging, shops, gourmet restaurants, the Four Winds Casino, and both private and public boat docks with safe harbor access to Lake Michigan. We are close to both private and public golf courses, wineries, breweries, summer theaters, artisan shops, and the famous guided Back Roads Biking Trails that meander through the local Michigan countryside of small towns, farms and vineyards. New Buffalo is 75 miles from Chicago. To visit, take Interstate 94 to Exit 1 West in Michigan or Amtrak from Union Station Chicago to New Buffalo.
