About Kerry Brown

The owners are both in the entertainment industry and live in LA. He spent many years in Chicago, and his family owned the home next door. When presented with the opportunity to buy The Hideout for themselves, they jumped at the opportunity. They now own both homes and are now working on completely rehabbing the home next door (The Lookout- stay tuned...) to offer the opportunity for large groups to be able to stay close together.

Kerry Brown purchased this house in 2010

Why Kerry Brown chose Michigan City

The homeowners love the feeling of stepping back in time when they come back. Enjoying summer like they did in their childhood when the days lasted forever and every day offered new, magical adventures...

Homemade root beer at Carlson's, the intimate Michigan City Zoo, building the ultimate sand castle, the lighthouse framing Chicago's skyline during beautiful sunsets, plus endless new opportunities!

Lovely home on Lake Michigan.

  • 5 of 5

The Hideout was a lovely place to spend the weekend, steps to the beach and with a great deck perfect for grilling and relaxing. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Year-Round Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 adults stayed in this excellent rental property over NYE weekend. The house was larger than expected and had such charm! The kitchen and dining area were roomy, as well as the living spaces. There were enough beds for all adults (and one extra!). We enjoyed the hot tub in the snow and even walked on the beach (only 2 blocks away). The kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans, and dishware. Not far from New Buffalo, where we took a wine tour (15 mins) or grocery shopping (7 mins). The property manager was VERY helpful. We were happy to find a place to fit us all, had amenities (hot tub, enough beds, large kitchen), and could accommodate so many adults for the New Year holiday. Definitely a place we'd return to in the warmer months!

(*setback for some - a long flight of stairs to get to/from either entrance to house*)

October Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four old friends picked the Hideout because it is a roughly equal distance drive from our homes in the US and Canada. The house proved to be a perfect venue for us to reconnect. It has nice indoor spaces in which to visit plus the house is surrounded by decks on the first and second floors. We enjoyed both the gas stove indoors and the propane grill outside. The home was clean and well maintained. It's a short walk to the beach as well as to a nice park. It also didn't hurt that we were blessed with beautiful late October weather.

In order to get to the house, there are a number of steps to traverse from either the street below or parking above. This was not an issue for us but might be a concern for some visitors. Lastly, Michigan City has a local restaurant called Shoreline Brewery which has a nice, inventive menu worth checking out.

2 Families with adult children.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay and would rent this house again in a heartbeat. Location was great, everything was clean, nicely decorated for a beach house. Floor plan was perfect - open kitchen / eating area connected to family room plus sep den for watching sports etc without taking over the "common space." Nice outdoor space. Proximity to the beach was great. It was perfect for our group. Yes there were stairs but that was clear in all the info provided prior to booking. My only suggestion would be some solar walkway lights on both sets of outdoor stairs. Looking forward to renting it again. Great experience.

Perfect vacation home for our family!

  • 5 of 5

I treated my children and grandchildren to a few days at the beach and enjoyed our stay at the Hideout! It was the perfect home for our family of 11. This charming home is updated and fresh and clean, and decorated so "beachy". We enjoyed all the window views, and this lovely home has 2 decks. The deck off the master bedroom is lovely and private. Hot tub on large main deck was a treat. A short walk to the beach, and we enjoyed our walk to the zoo. The house provided many beach towels and sand toys for the kids to use, which was appreciated. The kitchen table is large so we could all eat together. The property manager was easy to contact with any questions we had. We hope to return there next summer. I would highly recommend this lovely home to enjoy with your family.

Great adventure for the family

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the Hideout in July with our children and grandchildren, had a wonderful time. The large patio was great for the family and were able to play several games.

The manager was very helpful. Parking was outstanding we had 5 vehicles to park, the house was very clean and was perfect for our group from the ages of 69 to 6 months old. The kitchen was large enough to fit our family so we could all sit together. We also had dinners outside on the Patio. We could see the fireworks from the deck. The house is very comfortable and cozy, we had enough space to step away from each other. The beach was beautiful is about a 1.5 blocks away from the house. We all truly had a great time.
