The Summer House with pool, 1 blk from beach, sleeps 10 Max.
The wide pristine beach is just one short block away along a sandy road. You can walk the beach for countless miles in either direction. Or never move from your beach towel except to turn over. After a long sun filled day on the beach, shower in the outdoor gazebo shower; return to the beach for a glass of wine and a toast to the spectacular sunsets every evening. See the green flash some nights. See the mirage of the City of Chicago across the lake on special nights.


The Summer House has sky lights and cathedral ceilings. The open floor plan makes it perfect for family gatherings. The large kitchen invites everyone to help with the chopping, searing, mixing and dressing of the salads for dinner.

The deck holds the large outdoor table and chairs, gas grill and a bar and wicker chairs. All of this overlooks the swimming pool, the very large and deep back yard.

There is a children's jungle gym and fort on the back lawn.
