About Phoebe Selden

I am a busy but attentive Chicago professional who loves life in the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of Miller Beach.

Phoebe Selden purchased this house in 2012

Why Phoebe Selden chose Miller Beach

The Maple Street Cottage is ideally located on a quiet street just a short walk to the beach. Beach is clean and not crowded. Low street traffic even during the summer months proves a peaceful atmosphere. The house itself is well built with plenty of space for your extended family and friends to spread out. The bedrooms are surprisingly quiet and spacious.

What makes this house unique

Miller Beach is ideal due to its close proximity to Chicago, relaxed atmosphere and many activities in the area. Coffee shop, pizza and a restaurant are all clustered just over half a mile away - perfect distance for an early morning or evening stroll. This is truly a low stress vacation opportunity.

Perfect beach home for the beach wedding weekend

  • 5 out of 5
We got married at the Aquatorium on july 5 and extended our stay at this house. We absolutely loved our stay at Miller Beach and at the wonderfully large renovated home. Very close walking to the beach. The neighbor was very helpful and kind. We had the house full in each bedroom and on the couch with 12 adults and 3 babies. All were comfortable. Keep a quiet eye on the backyard as we saw a deer passing through daily. I would highly recommend the area and this house.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 out of 5
My sister recently got married in the Lansing, IL area and this home was our home base during the wedding weekend. It was a fantastic retreat where the whole family could comfortably stay together. The beach was just a walk down the block and my kids loved the beach area. The home itself was spacious and we felt like we could really spread out and have both alone and family time. Phoebe was so pleasant to work with and we appreciate her efforts to make our stay a great one.

Welcoming beach house

  • 5 out of 5
I enjoyed a six week early winter stay while working in the area. The house was very clean & modern. I especially liked all the tile throughout the kitchen & bathrooms. All the amenities one could need to call a place home were provided. The street view reveals a cute little house, however it is a little misleading as there is a lot of space inside (5 generously sized bedrooms & 3 baths) - the upstairs & downstairs feel separate from one another which creates a nice space for a group/family to spread out.

Lake Michigan is barely a block away with views of Chicago & an expansive beach that one can spend hours walking & skipping rocks in the winter when the water is too cold for a swim. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is minutes away by car (or ~30 mins on foot) & feels a world away from the city & traffic of Chicago. A MUCH better experience than staying at a hotel.

Wonderful home, excellant location, and very nice owner. Perfect experience.

  • 5 out of 5
My mom and I rented this home for a month and were extremely happy with everything. First off the owner is very responsive, very accommodating, and excellent to deal with. Any questions we had prior to the rental were answered promptly and any requests we had during our stay were attended to right away.

Location: Literally 1 block from the beach head. You can sit on the front porch and hear the waves crashing. The walk to the beach is up 1 block then down the beach path to the beach. The beach here is excellent, lots of sand, and shallow for a good ways, perfect for kids. It was never super busy either which was great. If you are apprehensive about Gary, don't be. Miller Beach is a wonderful community and we felt very safe and all the neighbors are awesome. We shopped at the local grocery, Walgreens, and restaurants and everyone was super nice. Flamingos bar/restaurant is blocks away and has great food and also great people. We didn't go to the beach cafe or the coffee shop but both are right there as well so plenty of options.

The House: It's all recently remodeled and feels new, even though it retains the charm of an older home. Laminate floors and tile throughout, gorgeous modern baths and a nice new kitchen with stainless appliances. The bedrooms are all huge and nicely appointed. The beds are nice as well. The basement is also beautifully remodeled with 2 bedrooms and a 3rd bath, and the "chill" room is great for hanging out and relaxing watching TV or playing games etc. There is a nice back deck for cooking out as well right off the kitchen.

I can't recommend this home enough. It was a great experience from start to finish, and is a great affordable option for a beach house close to Chicago with all the amenities. You will not be disappointed with this home.
