This lovingly restored and furnished 1930's knotty pine cottage has everything needed for an old-fashioned get-away. Situated on top of a hill, 1/2 block away from the white, sandy beaches of Lake Michigan, the home offers complete privacy while surrounding trees are full, with seasonal views of the lake in winter. The second floor deck and large ground level patio offer peaceful outdoor settings when not at the beach. A wood burning fireplace, books, games and puzzles offer old-fashioned entertainment for the family. The home is purposely without a television and computer.
The restored kitchen is furnished with all major appliances except a dishwasher. There is a large work island allowing more than one cook in the kitchen.
Two full baths, one upstairs and one down, have been fully restored to include new tile and fixtures, and the downstairs bath was modernized to include a walk-in shower and Jacuzzi tub. Baths are furnished with towels.
Two upstairs bedrooms are furnished with full-size beds. Two downstairs bedrooms offer a queen size bed in one, and two twin beds in the other. All beds have quality bedding.
There is a secondary living room downstairs with games and puzzles for guest use. A small kitchen downstairs provides convenient access to the patio and charcoal grille and is a great place to prep for dining on the patio.
During summer months an open-air, outdoor shower is available. There are some beach chairs and coolers for guest use.

About the owner: We have been enjoying the Indiana beaches for over 25 years. We bought this home in 1998 and underwent a major restoration. As an architect-interior designer team, we sought to maintain the 1930's character of the home while creating a gracious experience for our family and guests.
Why the Owner Chose Miller Beach: Miller Beach is a perfect get away from Chicago, not only because of its close proximity, but because of its world's apart feeling from the hustle and bustle of an urban environment.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The unique privacy of the property, coupled with its purposeful absence of a television, computer, and day to day distractions, allows our guests to truly celebrate life's simple pleasures. Whether you stay a week or a weekend, you will leave feeling rested and refreshed.
