Great House, Great Views and Great Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation! The house was perfect, plenty of beach chairs, toys, rafts, etc. There was plenty of room for our large group to spread out, including a big 6th bedroom in the basement that we did not expect! We will be returning next summer!

Weekend visit

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly what my group was looking for in a spacious, lakeside home in Michigan City for an extended weekend trip. The home comfortably slept our group of 14 adults, and we especially loved the huge deck and the open family room/living area with a great view of the lake and comfortable seating area. The property owner Colin was very responsive and helpful throughout our entire stay, from booking through checkout. Only downside was the home has 1 full bathroom (with shower) and one 1/2 bathroom. However, we definitely recommend this home, and we will stay here again if we plan another visit to Michigan City!

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

At any given time we had as many as 9 family members here and never felt crowded. Two bright sunny living room areas downstairs and huge deck overlooking the lake in front. The sunsets never disappointed. Lake breezes flowed through the house making for very comfortable sleeping. The furniture is clean, comfortable and generous.

Great table and chairs on the deck for cocktails and dinner. People watching was great fun and if you're a bird watcher, be sure to bring your binoculars. Everything worked perfectly--dishwasher, W & D, oven, AC, gas bbq, all of it. There's also a lovely deck upstairs with access from two bedrooms. Beach is nothing short of spectacular. Even the neighbors were a pleasure! In the past, we've rented in the Lakeside Michigan area but much prefer the proximity here to shopping and community concerts, etc in the park nearby. We're definitely coming back!
