Ogden Dunes house description

Relax and enjoy quiet, secluded, historic Ogden Dunes from The House At Sunset Trail, a lovely, newly renovated cottage high on a hill overlooking Lake Michigan, with a view across the lake all the way to Chicago. Ogden Dunes is a secure secluded beach village, surrounded by Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

The House At Sunset Trail is just an easy two block stroll to a lovely beach used primarily by the residents of the village. Walk, hike or jog the trails of the surrounding Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Within easy walking distance in the village are parks with tennis and basketball courts and children's playgrounds. Enjoy the grand lake view from the loft, the living room, the dining room or the patio. If you are lucky, you may see a herd of deer grazing in your back yard.

The Ogden Dunes Southshore Line train station is a one hour train ride to all the sights of downtown Chicago (40 miles to the Loop) or to South Bend, Indiana. Just across the highway from Ogden Dunes is the Portage public marina, and just beyond that is the brand new Bass Pro Shop in Portage. Also in Portage is a new I-Max theater, as well as a full range of stores, restaurants and golf courses.

Bike, run or walk the "rails to trails" Prairie to Duneland trail. Twenty miles east is the resort town of Michigan City where you can shop at the Lighthouse outlet mall or visit the zoo. A notebook of local attractions and restaurants is provided at the house.

From gorgeous spring through glorious colors of fall, friendly northwest Indiana has it all. (and the 4th of July fireworks are amazing!)

Get away from it all and just relax, or use our broadband Wi-Fi to stay connected.

Recommended for 4 to 6 people. Sleeping available for 8 total. This cottage would also be great for a romantic getaway for two.

One Month Minimum Stay. No Exceptions.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We are professionals born and raised in the Los Angeles area who live most of the year in Southern California, and vacation at the lake in Indiana. People from Indiana think it's odd that we would leave one of the prime vacation areas of the world in California to spend the time in Indiana. California is great too, but we love Indiana. We are active, love running, hiking, biking, camping, even tried hang-gliding. Have to stay in shape to keep up with our grandchildren. We have also really enjoyed restoring and upgrading this gem of a cottage in Ogden Dunes. It has been a hobby and passion to keep as much of the character as possible, adding on in a way that enhanced the house while respecting its basic architecture and history.

              Why the Owner Chose Ogden Dunes:
              We rented another house in Ogden Dunes for a vacation in 2005, fell in love with OD, and ended up buying our own house here. We were looking for a house with character where our grandchildren would enjoy visiting, which they do.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love getting up in the morning, walking out of the bedroom and staring at the great views across the Lake. The wildlife is plentiful, the short walk to the beach or in the surrounding woods is so peaceful and relaxing. The beach is a lovely place to spend with the grandchildren.
