Michigan City house description

This home, completely remodeled in 2012, has all the comforts of home, plus every amenity you want for a fantastic vacation. Located just 60 minutes from Chicago and 50 minutes from South Bend, this home is perfect for summer vacations, weekend winery tours, and Notre Dame sports weekends. Only one house separates this home from one of Lake Michigan's most gorgeous beaches so you can enjoy the luxury of beach front living.

The home features a fully equipped kitchen, plus an open living and dining area. Vintage stained glass windows contribute to the hip cottage atmosphere. Over 500 square feet of patio space with a large fire pit and plenty of seating offer tons of space for dining and relaxing. The house also has an outdoor shower, a large private back yard, and an indoor/outdoor speaker system.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We live in the suburbs of Chicago. I am an interior designer and my husband is in real estate. We have been renting properties to vacationers in Harbor Country for over 7 years and we enjoy offering beautiful homes to families for vacations they will cherish for a lifetime!

                  Why the Owner Chose Michigan City:
                  We have been enjoying the NW Indiana/SW Michigan lakefront for years, but had been searching for a house close to the beach. When the house in front of this became available (VRBO#452281), we jumped on the chance to have a waterfront property. The house needed to be completely gutted and rebuilt including new plumbing, electric, HVAC, flooring, bathrooms, kitchens, etc., which gave us the opportunity to design and furnish the home so it is ideal for summer vacation rentals. This home came on the market the next year. Although we were still recovering from the previous remodel, we knew having two neighboring homes would offer more space for reunions, large families and more. We gave this home the same overhaul and now can offer double the fun!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Dune Fine is a great place for kids. Our back yard offers privacy for get togethers on the patio and lots of wide open space for kids to run and explore. It's easy to run back and forth from the water to the house, sunsets are at your fingertips every night, and the sounds of the waves crashing reminds us we are someplace special!
