Location, Location, Location... just steps from one of the best beaches on Lake Michigan. Why fly to Florida for a great beach vacation? From Indianapolis, it's only 150 miles to the sandy beach path; from Chicago, it's only 60 miles! We are minutes from the Blue Chip Casino, Washington Park Zoo and Marina, Lighthouse Outlet Mall, Mount Baldy Sand Dune, and much, much, more! Come see for yourself all that Michigan City has to offer.
We have three large bedrooms in a comfortable unit. The kids can have their own space in a room with twin bunk beds, a TV with classic videos, and a game closet. Bedroom 1- Queen, Bedroom 2- twin bunk, and 1 full bed, Bedroom 3- 2 Queen beds. Beach towels, chairs, and toys are waiting for you.
I can't say enough good things about our recent stay. My son and my girlfriend and her son and I stayed for a week in the main floor 3 BR unit and we can't wait to make another summer getaway in the coming years. The house has everything you need for a week at the beach. We drove 5 hours from the Louisville area and it sure beats a 10 hour drive to the Gulf of Mexico. The owners are very easy to work with and are happy to answer any questions. Chicago is only an hour away and we enjoyed making two trips to Chicao to catch a Cubs game and hang out at Navy Pier and Michigan Ave.
We just returned from a short stay in the three-bedroom unit on the main floor. We were very comfortable with four adults and two young children, and we were especially happy with the super short walk to the beach. It was very nice to only lug our beach things and two kids about half a block before we climbed the dune to the shore. The owner was very kind, answering my many, many questions right away and made it easy to rent. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the house and very much appreciated the menus (good pizza recommendation!) on the cork board. We'd love to do this next summer too!
We just returned from a week at your lovely condo! We were nervous about the size from the pictures, but it had all the room we needed and we even had friends come from Fort Wayne and stay a couple of days! Plenty of room for everyone! The front porch was perfect for reading, eating a meal or playing board games. I have never stayed in beach house so well equipped with beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc. What a nice surprise! I could go on and on, but the main point i want to make is this condo is wonderful! Enjoying our stay was so easy because of the thought and care you provided! Thank you so much!
Our family stayed in the main floor unit and loved it! The owner was awesome about answering questions before our arrival. The condo was very clean and stocked with anything and everything you could think of. Short walk to the beach and centrally located to many Michigan City attractions. We will definitely be returning!
What a beautiful vacation home. The owners have thought of every detail! We stayed in the top unit where you could see Lake Michigan. Location, location, location!!!!! Loved the size and decor of the place. Every amenity available in the well stocked kitchen. The unit is immacutale. Being from Florida, it was so enjoyable to sleep with the windows open and the cool fresh air breezing throughout the room. As well, we loved the expansive deck, where after a long day at the beach, we would wind down and enjoy an evenig cocktail. The proximity to the beach is a one block, 3 minute walk over the dune where you sit in the (singing sand) and enjoy the panoramic views of the sunset with a backdrop of the lighthouse and Chicago skyline in the distance. A must see!!!!! Now after the sun has dropped below the horizon, you can see a blanket of stars over the lake. After we got back from the beach, we decided to venture out to one of the many local restaurants within a 10 minute drive. We also went to the zoo, which was within walking distance. Towards the end of our week stay, the weather was a little cooler, so we went horseback riding and to the apple orchards. Lots of fun activities in close proximity to this wonderful home. Everyone that we encountered on our vacation were very warm and friendly. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise!!! Will definitely be back, and highly recommend this place to our family and friends.
A few moms and our kids (teenagers) went up for just two nights. Just fantastic. I don't give it 5 stars because it was super high end or anything. But...I give it 5 stars for the price, location and how well it was represented and so easy to deal with Jill, the owner. We were in the upstairs unit - and the kids were able to stay in the bunk room and the moms stayed in the other two bedrooms. Just perfect for what we needed. I will definitely try to stay here again! Everyone was super friendly and helpful and we had a great time. Thank you!
This place was a lot more than we expected. We stayed in the bottom unit. It was clean and the bedrooms were big enough to sleep us 7 very comfortably. Everything you could possibly need is here. Beach toys, chairs, rafts, a kayak and lots of towels. The kitchen is fully equipped, there was even a crock pot but we didn't use it. We grilled every night. The washer and dryer was so convenient to wash the towels after a day at the beach. There's a tv in the family room and one in the bedroom that has a vcr player. There's a decent selection of movies and books. The title of this property is very appropriate, the beach is literally a 5 minute walk. There's a zoo about a mile away that's small (2.5 hours to walk through) that's great. We shopped at Meijer for groceries. The owner was always quick to respond to my questions. This was one of the most relaxing trips we've had considering there was 7 of us and 2 were babies. Oh, and the sheets were the softest sheets I've ever slept in. I'd definitely come back here again. Thank you Jill for thinking of everything.
Our family of six enjoyed our stay at the house. We especially liked all the extras that were included for the beach. We used the kayaks, raft, beach chairs, and coolers. Loved the short walk to the beach. We were in the upstairs and enjoyed all our meals outside on the porch. The inside furnishings were comfortable too. Our kids loved playing ping pong in the basement and using the grill. We look forward to staying here again and have talked positively to our friends and family about the property. We met Jill and she was very nice and helpful.
My husband and our two kids and our friends and their two kids just returned from a wonderful mini vacation in Michigan City. This rental is absolutely perfect! We stayed on the main level and even with 4 adults and 4 kids there still seemed to be ample room to rest and relax. This place was nice, very clean and well stocked with everything we could possibly need. The kitchen had every utensil imaginable, plenty of dishes and lots of pots and pans. There is a washer and dryer in the basement for which we were grateful to be able to wash our beach towels and swimsuits before making the drive home. If we weren't on the beach or eating, we could find our kiddos in the basement having a blast playing ping-pong. Don't worry about packing beach equipment because they have you covered... there are extra beach towels, life jackets, tons of beach toys and rafts and beach chairs, and even a couple of kayaks. We truly enjoyed every moment of our stay and we all feel it was definitely too short! My family and I don't vacation very often but we are hoping to make this trip again in the future. I communicated with the owner mostly by email and she was such a huge help, answering all my questions and even gave lots of suggestions. Jill, thank you so much for sharing your place with us! I think it's a gem and look forward to staying again sometime!
