About the owner: I am a busy but attentive Chicago professional who loves life in the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of Miller Beach.
Why the Owner Chose Miller Beach: The Maple Street Cottage is ideally located on a quiet street just a short walk to the beach. Beach is clean and not crowded. Low street traffic even during the summer months proves a peaceful atmosphere. The house itself is well built with plenty of space for your extended family and friends to spread out. The bedrooms are surprisingly quiet and spacious.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Miller Beach is ideal due to its close proximity to Chicago, relaxed atmosphere and many activities in the area. Coffee shop, pizza and a restaurant are all clustered just over half a mile away - perfect distance for an early morning or evening stroll. This is truly a low stress vacation opportunity.
