Loved everything about it! Highly recommend!

What a wonderful getaway -- really comfortable, clean and bright. I felt immediately comfortable and welcome and very much on vacation. A place to relax and just chill. The beds are very comfortable. The bathroom towels were lush. Everything we needed to feel comfortable was right here. One of the things I enjoyed most was early mornings (I wake up really early). I'd have a cup of hot coffee sitting at the living room picture window overlooking the lake. Just thinking about it makes me feel good. The views are so beautiful here that we grilled out almost every night and ate dinner on the deck at sunset. The kitchen is a great size for anyone who likes to cook, which we do.

We're hikers, so we liked being within walking distance to Indiana Dunes State Park. And as it turns out, our host (who is VERY nice to work with) used to work at the Park and she recommended some trails and sights, which we enjoyed.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this home for two nights. The home has an excellent location and is a short walk along the beach to Indiana Dunes park. Home was fully equipped and the owner was very easy to work with. There are neighbors below you that we could hear from time to time one of the evenings, but overall we had a wonderful experience and would rent again in a heartbeat.

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

Right on the water.

Beautiful sunsets from the beach, deck and living area.

Plenty of beach and dunes for walking, sunning and taking in the incredible views.

We did a lot of chilling and grilling along with a variety of other places in town for things to do only 8 minutes away.

We had a relaxing and memorable time here, the contact person was very pleasant, helpful and accommodating. Thank you!

We highly recommend this water front property!
