All the benefits of the Dunes and then some. The owner uses this house as a place for get togethers and family gatherings. With five bedrooms (two of the bedrooms have two sets of bunkbeds each, so there are 8 bunks, two queen beds and a king bed) and four full bathrooms, as many as 14 can have a great time over the week or weekend, and all sleep onsite. Sorry, we are no longer allowing weddings, bachelor parties, high school or college groups, and any groups over 14.

Features: Signature deck with outdoor gas grill, 9-person hot tub, outdoor shower and a finished lower level with a living area, tv, two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a bar and laundry. Upstairs features a full bathroom with dual shower heads and three bedrooms, kitchen, four-season room with gas fireplace and living room.

Spring and fall are my favorite times, but even winter is cozy in this getaway! Less than an hour to Notre Dame and less than a mile to the beach.

What makes this different from most homes in Beverly Shores is the location and lot size. We are close enough to the lake to make it an easy walk, bike or drive, but unlike homes close to the lake, this lot is two acres, which gives you a feeling of privacy while still being able to spread out.

The driveway is large and circular, so can accommodate several cars.

If you like to eat and don't want to grill all the time on site, the best restaurant in the Dunes, Bartlett's, is open just two doors down. It is a focal point of post-beach activity or a great place for Bloody Mary's anytime of day! Next door is Dunes Antiques. These are our neighbors and they are great! Go shop and meet them! (They also sleep with their windows open, so music or loud noise is not tolerated by us or by them. Police will be called if noise is excessive and you will lose your deposit, so this is a matter we take very seriously).

The goal is for you and your friends, family or significant other to have a fantastic time in a safe, calm environment. The stream, waterfall and shade garden help with the tranquil mood. If you want more information, just email me!

                      Additional information about rental rates

                      Fees:

                      • Refundable Damage Deposit $600
                      • Taxes Not included

                      Notes:

                      Typically the security deposit is 1/4 of the total rental and converts to a damage deposit when you arrive. So if your total rental rate is $3,450, then the deposit will likely be $850. Please inquire for specifics. Holidays are generally higher rent.


                      Cancellation policy:

                      100% refund if canceled at least 90 days before arrival date.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: I am a business owner from Indiana. I completed nearly all the landscaping, pond and waterfalls. Creating a sense of retreat has been the goal here as my normal life is hectic with travel and deadlines.

                      Why the Owner Chose Beverly Shores:
                      This is a great area: beaches, dunes, forest, hiking, not to mention great shopping and playing in Michigan City at the outlet mall and the Blue Chip casino. The best part for me was the ability of my dog to run around two acres and chase deer, squirrels, etc. The casual atmosphere here is great!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Everyone here is just here to relax or have fun -- or both! You can grab ice cream or coffee at the gas station (walkable), a full meal or drink at Bartlett's (walkable), mail a letter(!) at the town post office at the entrance to the property, and you can really utilize the property however you want to have a good time -- indoors or out. It's even beautiful in the winter b/c there is almost always a nice snow cover!
