Great house, lovely neighborhood!!!

  • 4 of 5

My family visited MI City for an engagement party and we wanted a cozy spot in a quiet area to relax after the festivities. This home fit the bill perfectly and the Troll collection throughout the house was a delightful theme that made the experience even more unique.

I highly recommend this place.

Perfect getaway for the active family

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has a lot of character and is very well maintained. It was cozy and the perfect size for family connecting. It's a short walk to the beach and a short drive to the Indiana Dunes. The kitchen that was stocked with pots and pans and the grill allowed us to dine-in for every meal. We enjoyed the games and movies and general quiet nature of the cottage community. I recommend this to anyone that wants to take in nature and leave work/schedules behind. Thank you!

We've been coming to the Trolls Den for the last several years. The property is both excellent and clean and Anders is a real pleasure to work with.

Great little spot in a great neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

Small house but 5 adults and a 3 year old managed a 3 day weekend just fine. Kitchen is small so plan meals and do most of prep work ahead. There is Al's Supermarket, CVS, gas station, and hardware store 5 minutes away. The beach is a very easy 15 minute walk. Yard wagon to use for beach was nice. Also a small playground 10 minute walk away. No noise at night. House WiFi was good and great selection of DVD if it rains.

Wonderful week at the Troll's Den

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at the Troll's Den and thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. This was our first time there and we will definitely return. The house was neat, clean, and ready for us when we got there. The community is delightful and everyone friendly. We could walk to the beautiful beach, the pool with a small concession area, and the large playground. The private lake provides fishing, and kayaks and paddle boards are available. We picked blueberries at nearby farms and then baked pies and muffins. We visited the Farmers' Market on Saturday in Michigan City and bought fresh, local vegetables and cheese. Close by are many other beautiful dunes and beaches. The owner responds quickly and answered all of my questions promptly, super helpful. We had a wonderful experience at the Troll's Den, none of us were ready to leave at the end of the week!!
