About Jim Pappas

An Engineer/Architect since 1995, my specialty and passion is designing, building, and managing luxury beachfront homes to accommodate very large families and groups to entertain, relax, and celebrate special occasions together.

Completed in 2009, the Miller Beach Dream Retreat and attached Guest House offer all the luxuries, premium fixtures, and custom amenities to truly have a spa-like experience. The layout and flow is functional with both large gathering spaces to entertain inside and out on a grand-scale as well as comfortable, cozy nooks for managed solitude.

I’ve been a commercial real estate investor since 2001 and have finally built a dream home for my family to call home. We always look forward to 'our private oasis on the beach” to escape from it all...

I truly hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. Please see www.MillerBeachDreamRetreat.com and call (773) 264-1000 to book your chosen dates. We fill up very fast, take credit cards, and are first come, first served.

Hope to see you soon!

Jim Pappas & Family

Jim Pappas purchased this house in 2009

Why Jim Pappas chose Miller Beach

We chose Miller Beach, IN for several reasons. It is THE closest beach side community to Chicago (35 minutes by car or train, 60 minutes from O’hare Airport, 30 minutes from Midway Airport), is right on the Indiana Dunes National Park, and has the BEST “semi-private” sugar-sand beach!

Our backyard and beach IS the IN Dunes National Park!

Unlike most beachfront rentals that are crowded, noisy, and offer little or no privacy, Dream Retreat is built on a quiet, cul-de-sac street, corner lot, the only house on the corner, and 350 feet from the closest neighbor!.

Your views to the North and East are Lake Michigan, the Dunes, and the Chicago skyline. We installed 6’ and 8’ privacy fences to further isolate the outdoor living spaces and Pro-sand volleyball court from the street.

Just follow our trail to the sugar-sand beach and enjoy the 150ft sand bar and crystal clear, warm water. Our beach has no rocks, no muck, and no algae. Also, because we are the Southern-most tip of Lake Michigan, the water gets the warmest fastest and stays the warmest the longest--even well into Autumn.

The choice is obvious...

become “one with nature”, have no noisy neighbors, enjoy the ultimate in luxury and privacy, and be only 35 minutes from Chicago--one of the largest and most culturally diverse cities in the world!

What makes this house unique

No other beachfront vacation rental offers this level of privacy, beauty, and luxury. Our guest list is confidential, but includes A-list celebrities on-site during filming of major movies, professional sports stars, and noted journalists.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Met with a bunch of girls who all Scrapbook. That's what we did from Thursday until Sunday in Nov. 2011. Beautiful home, beautiful location, beautiful times!! Would I do again? In a heartbeat!! Oh and did I mention the hot tub. This would be a great place for a small family reunion or maybe a New Years Eve party. Very lovely--hoping to make plans to do it again.

Wish there was more time

  • 4 out of 5
We had a great time wish there was more time. Jim was great, very pleasant to deal with. Had looked at this house for years and finally got to stay here, The walk to beach through dunes was as easy as he said. We did have concerns about it, we have a 14 year old lab with arthritis but she did fine. House was very clean, and had plenty of kitchen amenities to make cooking easy. Only 1 thing go to Meijer for grocery's PLEASE. Thanks for having us. We will return.

(Too) Short & Sweet Very Memorable Family Vacation

(Too) Short & Sweet Very Memorable Family Vacation
  • 5 out of 5
My large (25 person), extended family and I stayed at the Dream Retreat a few weeks ago for an all-too-short two nights but had such a splendid time, we have already booked a full week next Summer! Grilling out and eating dinners on the deck with the IN Dunes Park and Lake Michigan as a backdrop were breathtaking. When not at the beach, our kids played a lot of volleyball—Hilary mentioned during the tour that it was Olympic grade.

The house was spacious and had all the things we needed. In most vacation rentals we’ve stayed at in the past, we usually have to bring our own beach towels, trash bags, spices, foil, paper towels, extra propane tanks, etc. Not here; they had it all!

The ladies loved how clean everything was inside and out, as well as the décor and furnishings. The pull-out sofa in the Guest House was the most comfortable ever—it’s actually a Temperpedic Memory Foam like the one we have at home.

Upon arrival, the owners, Jim and Hilary, patiently gave us a tour (some of the kids had been in the car way too long), answered questions, and pointed out the relevant and fun stuff to do in the area in the House Binder.

Being designers ourselves, we were happy to see some of the ongoing renovations—new themed rooms, paint and furniture in several areas of the home.

For us, this felt like home, we didn’t want to leave and can’t wait until next Summer at the dream Retreat!

The grandkids enjoyed the stay, wanted to stay the whole summer. You have a nice place however it needs a little maintenance. The outside deck needs some attention. Maybe sweep it or blow it off. It also would benefit if you would refresh the stain or replace some of the planks, broke a rotten board. The weeds around the deck and in front of your place should be pulled or use some roundup. Screens needed cleaning right along with the windows. The master bathroom vanity tops need to be updated. The house was hard to keep cool and was very loud.

Owner's Response: Hilary and I pride ourselves on making our Miller Beach Dream Retreat the BEST vacation rental on Lake Michigan and always strive for continuous improvement. We’ve had an unusually rainy June that has made it difficult to do certain planned maintenance activities. However, by early July, everything was back to excellent!
****Between Guests, the maids wash ALL the windows and screens and we personally blow off all decks starting from Level 6 down. Whenever it rains, it is difficult to get ALL the sand off the multi-level decks. (after all, we ARE a beach house).
****In May, we replaced 246ft of wooden deck and railing and are waiting for them to “dry-out” first so we can re-stain the entire deck system which we plan to do in late Autumn.
****Being right on the Indiana Dunes National Park, weeds LOVE us. Three times during Peak Season, we pull ALL the weeds on the entire compound. We then spray the root systems as long as it doesn’t rain for 48 hours to keep them from coming back. Once the “dry-spell” hit, we were able to spray in our usual fashion and eradicate all weed from the premises.
****We take heating and cooling very seriously and stopped by to check on things and found four windows and two doors wide open WITH all eight (8) A/C units running. We always explain to our Guests that in order for the house to stay cool, all the doors and windows need to be closed or all the cold air goes right outside.
****We built the Dream Retreat on a quiet, cul-de-sac, low traffic street and is the only house on a large corner lot. There is nothing but beautiful dunes, beach, and Lake Michigan to the North and East. Our closest neighbor is 350ft away to the West. When you have ten adults and 16 grandkids at one time, I suppose any house would be loud.

Beautiful house, gracious hosts!

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a weekend spent with 4 other couples at your home. We had such a great time together and really appreciated all the amenities and comfortable set up. The website was very accurate. The views of Lake Michigan and the dunes were beautiful. The beach would be wonderful to enjoy in the summer. Hilary greeted us, gave us a thorough tour and lots of good information. We had some concerns about the hot tub, but she assured us it was ok and we ended up enjoying it so much - even with the cold, windy weather. We can tell you put a lot of thought into the furnishings, both in function and design. Thanks for the opportunity to gather and enjoy a weekend of fun! A few small suggestions ( you said you wanted them): could have used a few more hangers in some of the bedrooms, there were no dish towels in the kitchen, noticed some cobwebs and dust bunnies/dog hair that was missed. I don't suppose you can do anything about the potholes in the surrounding streets! :)
These are small things and we loved our stay, hope to do it again!

Owner's Response: Gail: Thank you for your compliments and suggestions! Hilary and I always strive for continuous improvement in making the Miller Beach Dream Retreat Indiana's Best Beachfront Vacation Rental!
Since your stay, we have made sure that each closet has at least 10 sturdy, matching hangers. We always provide six black dish towels in the Main House and Attached Guest House Kitchens (two near the large double-bowl, under-mount Farm Sink, two near the Island Prep Sink, two near the large double-bowl Island Sink).
Due to our increased popularity and bookings of the Dream Retreat, we now do a Deep Clean of the entire compound every three (3) months, instead of our usual six.
Thanks again and see you this Summer!

Simply perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
Eight of us decided it was time for a girls weekend for movies, knitting, food and fun. Fortunately, we found the Dream Retreat! Jim and Hilary have a lovely, charming and comfortable home. They are gracious hosts, providing us with useful information at check in and a binder for reference. The layout of the house is perfect: four bathrooms and queen beds in every bedroom. The views are spectacular, the house is clean and amazingly well equipped. The information on the website is spot on. We enjoyed our time at the Dream Retreat VERY much. I recommend this property to anyone looking for a great vacation rental at a fair price with excellent service.

Dream Retreat better than ever!!

  • 5 out of 5
This is the third time staying at the DR, as we like to call it. This year, we were pleasantly surprised by all of the updates to the home. It’s always been lovely, but they just updated all of the bedding and added new furniture and tv’s. It seems like renovation is the air, there are new trails and a complete transformation of the lakefront, which wasn’t quite finished when we stayed last year. Very nice and we really enjoyed our daily walks through the dunes.
We always appreciate the personal service from Jim and Hilary—they take great pride in their home and we look forward to seeing them every time.
