About Phoebe Selden

I am a fun loving but busy Chicago professional who loves life in the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of Miller Beach. I especially love to spend time hiking, biking and boating in Miller Beach and the surrounding area.

Phoebe Selden purchased this house in 2012

Why Phoebe Selden chose Miller Beach

The Maple Avenue 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 spot for my family.

We enjoyed our stay at Maple Cottage. It was spacious enough for our family with all the comforts of home. Close walk to the beach too.

Lots of space: close to the beach and Chicago

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time Memorial Day weekend. The house itself has plenty of space to spread out, and is equipped with everything you need. The beach is an easy walk and is nice and quiet: we took full advantage in the 90 degree heat! The owner was responsive, both in advance of and during our stay.

Lots of space in Gary

  • 5 of 5

This was a great spot for our film crew to rest in between shoot days! We actually caught a beautiful sunset just a few blocks away, with Chicago in the background. It was a bit chilly during our stay, but I can imagine it's quite nice during the summer when people are at the beach. Thanks for hosting us in Gary!

This House Is Huge :-)

  • 5 of 5

Do not be fooled by the small frame of this home. It is really large and just as described. The place is clean and has everything you need. Everything has been upgraded and Phoebe is a premier host. She is very accommodating and goes out of her way to make sure you're taken car of. Quiet block ... Great stay!!

Great home nestled in Miller Beach

  • 5 of 5

Huge vacation home with all you need to enjoy a beach vacation on Lake Michigan. A two minute walk to beach, quiet neighborhood, and pet friendly. Perfect for large families seeking a getaway or a large group of friends. Owner is overly accommodating - you are sure to have a great time. Great for kids too!
