Manager info

About: We built The Cozy Cottage and the main house, 'The Cottage' after years of dreaming of owning our own vacation property. Being Chicago natives, we found Michigan City to be the perfect, quaint, yet thriving area to build our vacation properties.

Why Michigan City:
Lake Michigan is one of the most pristine beaches in the United States. The proximity to Chicago makes it great location to vacation. The house is always clean and it has been well thought out. We have been vacationing for years together and we know exactly what it takes to have a perfect rental. We have put great detail in providing a home that has everything for you. We hope you enjoy our home and the Beachwalk area for your family vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Clean, clean, clean! We promise our property will be clean and in mint condition when you arrive. We want our cottage to be your home away from home and your vacation to be a memorable one! We have a property manager on call 24 hours a day should a situation arise during your stay.
