Overview

About the property

Four Bedroom, 1.5 Bath On The Beach

Walk out the front door and splash in Lake Michigan, play on the beach, sink your toes into the sand and soak up the sun's rays. Or, if you're feeling more energetic, hit the lovely wooded trails to run, hike, bike or cross country ski. If you want to just stay at home, use the fully equipped kitchen to prepare a quick snack or a gourmet meal. Or choose a deep read or light fiction from our library. The choices are endless here at the beach house we call Captains Quarters.

An Awesome Week on the Hoosier Riviera

  • 5 of 5

The location relative to the beach and lake are spectacular. Nothing better anywhere. The lodging is quaint, comfortable, "beachy". The owners are very accommodating and helpful. Plenty of room for 5-6 adults, plus a couple of kids. We hope we can go back again next year.

Right on the beach. Great place for a little family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely house with lots of character. Very flexible sleeping options. There is a gas AND a charcoal grill. I thought I would hate the steps going down to the lovely silky sand beach, but it was much less bothersome than I thought. The access to 2 kayaks, standing paddle board and a Lilypad float (and the life jackets supplied with them) really added so much to our fun at the beach. I would rent this again in a minute!

Our rental was equipped with great kitchen appliances. Beds very comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Best of all was the view of Lake Michigan with Chicago @ the horizon. Can't beat the sunset. There was a variety of beach supplies. We took our own life vests & swim floats for younger children. Not up to kyyaks yet! Lots to do in area at Indiana State Park too! Crowds were there Sat & Sunday so avoid RT 49 @ State Park Road on those days. Use Waverly to Rt 12 to get to stores on those days! Or just stock up and stay at the private beach!! Complex of cottages even has coin washer & dryer for those staying longer! Sisters who manage the rentals were great!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Porter Beach property was perfect. We are a family of 6, kids age 13 through 20. Plenty of space for all, and we didn't need the 4th bedroom. Everything we needed was provided, and the beach toys (kayaks, paddle board) were a hit for all. The views are priceless, with the Chicago sky line in view. The beach was perfect with the Dune challenge within walking distance. We were able to completely unwind, relax and play board games that were provided. Gas and charcoal grills. We didn't need to leave the house! Thanks for a great weekend!!

Loving The Beach Life

  • 5 of 5

This rental is absolutely perfect. The location is on top of a dune and the views are awesome. Approximately fifty steps take you down to the beach where you can enjoy that life!

The owners of the property are great people. They get back to you quickly and attempt to meet the needs of occupants. We always enjoy staying at one of their numerous rentals. If you are looking for an enjoyable beach experience, look no further. Bring your own beach towels and enjoy!

Our group of 8 really enjoyed this property and location.The owners were responsive, helpful and easy to work with. The beach is just down a flight of stairs. The views from inside the house and on the deck are amazing! At night we could see Chicago lit up in the distance. The house was very clean and great prepare to our arrive. We had a great weekend. THANK YOU.
