M&M Dune Cottage is a vintage, 1920's Sheridan Beach original. So, if you're looking for a place with character and can live with all of the rough edges that come with staying in a 90+ year old cottage built on sand, we're the perfect choice for your fun in the sun!

Simply, walk out your front door to step onto the sand path. It leads to the world's most beautiful beach. Sheridan Beach!

Like to walk... The historic Lighthouse with its Promenade, the Michigan City Zoo & Washington Park are just a short stroll down the beach.

Like to shop, boat or play... The Lighthouse Outlet Mall, Downtown Shops with fun & fancy Restaurants, the Port Authority & the Blue Chip Casino are just a quick 5 minute drive away.

An easy vacation for young families wanting to create a lifetime of memories, and for those who are looking to reconnect. Great for a large family, or two smaller ones. Well suited for family gatherings & craft groups, too.

Important Note:

Like all area cottages, M&M Dune Cottage is separated from the lake by a naturally created, government protected dune. The pathways over the dune are marked & continually managed to keep their heights as low as possible. For those who want to avoid traversing the dune, there's a boardwalk in Washington Park.

Please remember to read all beach cautions and supervise children. Thank you!

Why Donna Mueller chose Michigan City

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this cottage as a group of 9. It was plenty large and we really enjoyed the close proximity to the beach. It's just a hike over a dune and you're at the beach :) I would not recommend this place if you have any mobility issues. The hike over the dune is mildly difficult, but would be impossible if you had problems getting around on your own. The cottage was well-stocked with items you need while traveling. The reason I did not give 5 stars is I think the cottage needs some furniture updates. None of the living room furniture is very comfortable, and is definitely showing its age. Other than that, it's a great place!

Adorable cottage and well equipped. Close walk to beach without crossing a road.

Very spacious and clean. Would have liked a couple of windows with screens in living room but other than that it was great

Beach Path Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great long weekend at the Beach Path cottage. The cottage is in a great location. You are one fine climb away from the lake. The house was the perfect size for 7 adults. Central AC was a plus! We shared many meals on the front porch and laughs in the living room. The owners were super helpful and the cottage was clean when we arrived. I would definitely recommend this place to those looking for along weekend/week long stay at the beach!

Cozy and Comfortable; Wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

My family spent 4 days in this sweet bungallow. If you are someone who demands mordern and sleek , then this is not the cottage for you. But, if you appreciate and love traditional housing, then you will enjoy this cottage. The hardwood floors and gingerbread trim is reminiscent of early housing and this cottage has to be one of the original buildings at the beach... so, a definite "beach" feel to it! The sand dune is large that you cross to get to the lake, but not unbearable or impossible to navigate. When my husband forgot something rather important, Donna and Brian responded quickly and helped develop a plan to retrieve it. This was a good choice for our family and we would rent again---if the owners would agree to have us! 😊😊
