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!!

Our stay at the Troll's Den

  • 4 of 5

The house was very small but it was clean and provided a nice vacation for our family. We enjoyed the tennis courts and close proximity to the lake. The whole community was cute with all the fun-colored houses. We had a few small issues that the owner handled immediately. I would recommend it to others.

Nice Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We came to Indiana Dunes for a weekend and stayed at this cottage for 2 nights. We had a nice time. The house is compact but has everything one might need during a weekend getaway. The bedrooms upstairs have vaulted ceilings, which gives them a spacious feel. The first evening we arrived it was raining, so we couldn't enjoy having dinner outside in the backyard, as we would have liked. We thought a patio umbrella of sorts would have made it possible (there is a wooden table in the backyard). So we dined in, watched some movies, and our daughter played games found in the bedroom's closet on the first floor. Nice, quiet time away from the everyday stress of life.

The next day the rain stopped and we went to the lake Michigan beach, which is about 10 minutes walk from the house. We walked all the way to the Indiana Dunes lighthouse along the shore. If the weather was sunny, I'm sure we would have seen a lot of people on the beach, but that day it was cloudy and windy, so not many people (which I truly enjoyed). Overall, good time.

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great getaway for fall break. We had such a great time in this home and our kids loved it. The owner was wonderful to communicate with and always responded promptly. We will definitely be staying again!!!! It had everything we needed. The things we thought we needed, like wifi, was not even necessary. It brought the family closer together. Instead of our heads down in our laptops and/or iPads, we played board games and watched movies together. A great house and a fun time had by all!
