Dune Acres house description
If you want to refresh your spirit and your life, why not spend a month or two (or more) along Lake Michigan in Northwestern Indiana's beautiful dunes. The Dunes National Lakeshore and the Indiana State Park (which flank this small community) offer many trails and opportunities to learn more about the natural history of the greater Chicago area. With commuter train service available to downtown Chicago,you needn't quit your job to experience life in a wholly transformative way. Much more than a "stay-cation", you will reconnect to the natural world and see your surroundings in new ways.
This small but spacious home has everything to make your stay in the dunes a chance for personal renewal. Deck that surrounds 3 sides of the house and tall casement windows bring you close to the outdoors where you are surrounded by beautiful woodlands and dunes. You will be only 400 yards from the singing sands of Lake Michigan.
Depending upon availability, special rates apply during the late fall and winter. Please contact owners by e-mail or phone to determine an appropriate rate. Please remember that short-term rentals are not permissable in Dune Acres. The minimum stay is one month; however, a one-month stay in this lovely, spotlessly maintained house is less than most one-week stays in the surrounding area.
Keywords: vacation home, airy, spacious, maintenance free.

ReviewsWrite a review
We spent an unforgettable 6 weeks here in 2007. My kids (6,4,4) had a great time catching caterpillars, luna moths, snails, frogs, and butterflies. They hardly ever asked to turn the TV on! The beach is absolutely beautiful and never crowded--you feel like it's there just for your use alone sometimes! The house is adorable and very kid friendly--great for hide and seek! We had a great time and have wonderful memories of our first summer there. Can't wait to come back again.
