                                    Coming from Minnesota, we are always hopeful that when we travel some distance our VRBO selection meets our expectations. Being that this rental was in one of favorite places, Beverly Shores, we anticipated having a great time. Our expectations were exceeded. The Marys have provided a retreat as warm and comfortable as any home you may find. From the cozy living room with a great fireplace to the bright and cheery kitchen to the private outdoor spa, it all made for a great long weekend. If we could arrange for more trips, we would like to soak in the views and soak in the spa each season. Thanks Mary and Mary for opening your special place to us. carol & oliver

                                    We love this cabin. This is our second time in this home. We had a very relaxing time for our 25th Anniversary vacation. The weather was cold, but we really enjoyed the beautiful fireplace and hot tub. Walking distance to the beach and train stop for people wanting to go to Chicago. Beautiful homes in the area! This home is extremely clean! We appreciate bringing our pets to share our vacation. We will return again and hopefully have better weather. The owner is very helpful and quick to answer any questions that may come up.

                                    Mary's, A great place to get away from home. We had the best time with the kids. We will be back. It was a great time having the dogs there with the kids. It was our home away from home. The pics here on the net don't do the house justice, with all the wood and the amazing fireplace.....simply amazing. Even though I think the kids favorite part was the hot tub ....lol..Like I said we will be dealing with the Mary's only from this point on every time we come up to the NW Indiana area......see you in May again. I will be hitting you up in March.....Have a Great Holiday Season.....Paul Atlanta, GA

                                    My wife and I stayed for a week with our three dogs. Limited access to dog-friendly areas of the beach compromised our enjoyment of the vacation. Also, if you'd like to have a few other options for things to do (other than visit the beach), there aren't too many possibilities less than an hours drive away. Overall, if you if visiting without a pet and prefer a quiet vacation laying on the beach this area would be a very good choice.

                                    Owner response: We expect dog owners to be responsible and in control of their pets. Your pets were disturbing the neighbors garden and trying to get into their home. We allow dogs to roam on the property when owners have full control of them. I am sorry you feel disappointed by the rules in Beverly Shores but residents wouldn't have had an issue if your pets were controlled.

                                    We had a great time at the Dunes. The Marys have made the cottage comfortable and cozy. We had some sun, some rain, even very chilly weather upper 40's with a strong wind. The kitchen was well equipped with cookwear as well as spices. The sunsets with the Chicago skyline are amazing.

                                    We had a lot of fun. The beach is close by. It was really chilly but we still had fun. We really enjoyed the fireplace. Everything was very clean. The grill outside was great to use! We spent a lot of our time by the fireplace, taking walks, and playing games in the dining room. The screened in porch was really nice as well.

                                    Thank you. I enjoyed my stay very much. The house was beautiful! I had a great time, my only regret was that I couldn't stay longer. I had a wonderful birthday weekend though. It is a great location, and already wanting to come back. I just can't say enough good things about it, I had an amazing time and want to thank you so much for everything!

                                    I was going to send you an email today and your's showed up! Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your home. What a wonderfuly relaxing time we had, it made our Thanksgiving so memorable. We really love the area, did some Black Friday shopping in Valpo and great people there! Had an encounter with a deer one evening, she was standing in the woods, just staring at me! Fire place really warmed our bones Friday as the Temps went from 62 to 36 in 24 hours. We are already considering our Thanksgiving next year and we will be in touch if we come your way again. Wonderful home!

                                    My fiance and I had a lovely weekend here! The property was very well-kept and extremely clean. The hot tub and fireplace were perfect for the cool fall days and the beach is just a short walk away. We also enjoyed walking and hiking all over the area. The kitchen was stocked with cooking necessities and the grill was easy to use. The owners are extremely organized and leave lots of useful instructions. The property is also only 90 minutes from Chicago, which makes this an ideal retreat from the city. From start to finish, our rental experience was positive and easy. We will be back!
