Get away from the daily grind while reconnecting with your family and friends at this adorable beach house. Located only an hour and 15 minutes from Chicago, Star Cottage offers a convenient and carefree setting for your weekend retreat or summer getaway. Between the private beach (which is less than a 10 minute walk from the house) and the thoughtful amenities, you’ll enjoy everything you need to relax and rejuvenate.
The house has deeded beach rights to an expansive private beach (dog friendly) and is just a short walk away. As you walk on the beach, listen for the “whistling” sand; it will enchant you and your children. After you enjoy your time at our beach, our outside shower will clean you and your pets off. We allow dogs here; in fact, we encourage you to bring them!
Step into the open-concept living area, and you’ll be greeted with plenty of natural light and warm, beachy decor. Get cozy in front of a roaring fire on chilly evenings or relax in air-conditioned comfort during the summer. A surround sound system adds to the ambiance as its soft music drifts from room to room. Star Cottage comes with high-speed wireless Internet and high-definition satellite TVs with DirecTV service.
The master bedroom suite was designed with your utmost comfort in mind. Wake up in a plush king-size bed to a view of the trees shading the back porch. You have your choice of a deluxe steam shower or Jacuzzi tub for two, either of which will wash away the worries of life back home.
The other two bedrooms are equally cozy—one has a queen-size bed and the other has two twin beds. The shared guest bathroom also has a steam shower with rain heads, so everyone is pampered! While the home comfortably sleeps six, you can fit a seventh guest in the pull-out sofa in the living room.
Our spacious kitchen has everything you need for the quintessential summer cookout, including a gas grill on the back porch for your steaks, seafood, and more. After dinner, sit around the fire pit and watch your kids can toast marshmallows. The porch, which can be accessed from the master bedroom or the living room, easily accommodates everyone and looks out onto a four-acre orchard. You’ll have privacy you won’t find in most of the other vacation rentals.
Star Cottage sits between downtown New Buffalo and Union Pier and within minutes to Lakeside, Sawyer and Three Oaks. Downtown New Buffalo is only a mile and a half away where you have your choice of fine restaurants, shops and spas. Visit one of the several award-winning wineries - just a short drive away. Washington Park Zoo in nearby Michigan City, only twenty minutes away, or stop and shop at Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets, an outlet mall and Michigan City staple. And for the adults, the Four Winds Casino is only a ten-minute drive. From antiquing, spas, casinos, wine tasting & vineyard tours, sunbathing, shopping and dining, everything is within reach when you stay at Star Cottage.
Star Cottage will win your heart and become your new home away from home. So call or email quickly because we fill up fast!
