Michigan City house description
This home could be out of the pages of Coastal Living Magazine. Wake up to views of Lake Michigan from just across the street. Step out onto the screened porch off the master bedroom and have a cup of coffee as you gear up for a great day at the beach or pool; shopping or gambling.
Gather with the family for delicious meals in the spacious kitchen and dining area. At the end of the day come back to the house and relax in the living area or spend some time in the more casual finished basement.
This beautiful home features a spacious, inviting design defined by crown molding & 10' ceilings. The main floor features a large kitchen with center island and separate dining area and is a great gathering place for those home cooked meals. The living area opens to a screened deck and features a gas fireplace, and Television, Bose Surround Sound Stereo, a Tivo system and a wet bar. Upstairs you will find a large master bedroom with a king size bed and a private bath and two other bedrooms with Queen size beds and a Jack and Jill bath.
The walk-out basement is completely finished and features a great family room with a full service wet bar. There are also two bedrooms in the basement; one with a king size bed and a bunk room with 2 sets of bunks. What a great setup for two or more families!

Better than expected, and expectations were high
Better than expected, and expectations were high
Having never been to Michigan City nor having rented a lake house I did a lot of research when deciding where to throw a surprise birthday gathering. My search led me to Honeysuckle Cottage and Charles, the proprietor, answered all of my questions. The house was amazing. Luxurious, had all of the modern features while maintaining a warm, cozy and comfortable feel. We had 14 guests and there was plenty of space for everyone both during the day and at night. The beach was just a few minutes walk away which provided plenty of space for the dog to frolic. We had an amazing time and were sad to leave but we now have a place to keep in mind for future gatherings. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Great Beach House
Great Beach House
This house accommodated our large group with ease. The kitchen has plenty of space for several cooks and for feeding large groups. The basement entertainment area kept the kids out from under foot in the evenings while allowing the adults plenty of room on the first floor to pursue different activities. The screened in porches are wonderful extra areas to congregate. With beach access directly across the street, this house is a great choice for family fun.

Manager response: Thank you guys again for such a nice review! We appreciate that very much. It was great having you all as our guests and we hope you can join us next year! Charles Cornelius Honeysuckle Cottage
We recently stayed here for a weekend over New Years. We are experienced vacation renters and usually in large groups(4 - 6 couples) and this home was perfect. We slept 6 couples with ease, this is hard to find as some of these "5 bedrooms" are really 3 with some pull out beds. With 4 bathrooms, no one had any issues with water or privacy. Becuase it was winter we didn't leave the home much and really enjoyed the spacious, updated kitchen. This is actually where we spent most of our time despite the finished basement and comfortable living room. The ice machine was an added plus as we were not running out to buy ice for drinks! The master bedroom is wonderful and if you were traveling w/ kids, except for a kitchen, you wouldn't need to leave. The room is extremely large and opens up to a screened in porch. This is a high end home with great finishing touches, but you still feel comfortable. We would rent again!
