Property description

About Miller Beach
Miller Beach is Lake Michigan’s hip but family friendly beach getaway, and the Blue Butterfly is its best bang for the buck at under 1.5 blocks from the beach. As one of only four beach communities nestled between the sandy shores of Lake Michigan and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Park, Miller Beach is located only 45 minutes from downtown Chicago and has something for everyone. Miller Beach’s blue waters, towering dunes and diverse ecosystems are ideal for beach goers, families, hikers, nature enthusiasts and those looking for a couple’s getaway or even a brewery tour.
