Owner info

About the owner: My sister, Ericka, and I manage our beach cottages which have been in our family since the 1920’s. It is our goal to create an environment in each cottage that is as unique and beautiful as the Indiana Dunes are themselves. And, when you are ready to step beyond the beach and magnificent Lake Michigan, whether you are interested in birding, hiking, theme parks, fairs, antiquing, shopping or museums we will gladly point you in the direction of any one of our areas numerous natural and cultural treasures.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Indiana Dunes region is known for its beautiful beaches along Lake Michigan (the fifth largest fresh water lake in the world). Just beyond those beaches lie some of the world's largest sand dunes, created by glacial deposits, lake currents and wind. This is an area rich in history, ecological diversity, outdoor fun and family friendly small-town charm. When you are ready to take a break from swimming, playing on the beach and climbing the sand dunes there are many excellent restaurants, cafes, shops, museums and other inland charms to discover and enjoy.
