  • Beautiful fall weekend with family

    "The house was very clean and nice. Great communication with owner The best part was the campfire on the beach Also the tub in master bath was huge. The only things we said were missing but not deal breakers was a hot tub on deck and a grill across the street at lakeside lot. Believe there use to be one there the path to the lake was a little overgrown We went to wineries which were really close, ate lunch at Tabor Hill it was great. Do not want to miss Brentwood Tavern in New Buffalo food and service wonderful and rooftop deck to wait for a table is beautiful. Would stay there again"

  • Needed more info

    "The description and photos do not really give enough information about this place. It is not clear from the photo but this is on the second floor with a unit below it and one next to it all in the same structure. It is also a hike down from the parking lot (stairs over dunes). The washer and dryer are coin operated and most people do not bring 10 quarters do do a load of laundry. There is satellite/cable on the tv but minimal channels and the wifi is unreliable and slow. Now for the good. The location is great as it is probably less than a half mile walk on the beach to the park, which otherwise charges for entry by car. Great views of the lake and sunset from the balcony. It would have been nice for us to know ahead of time that the owners provide with a TON of beach stuff - toys for children, chairs and two kayaks! You do not need to find a rental place as these are free for guests."

  • Peaceful escape

    "Our hope, as a couple with young kids, was for a peaceful, relaxing weekend escape. This place delivered. First of all, the owner was very responsive in setting up all the arrangements. It was an "anxiety-free" transaction, which was a nice way to start. The home itself is modern, very tastefully decorated, with wonderful natural light. We felt very comfortable and safe. As a bit of a handyman, there were a few "repairs" I'd like to make (the rain showerhead did not work, the bathroom sink was a very slow drain, a blind was difficult to close, and a door handle needs replacing) ... but that's really nitpicking; nothing that I just described took away from the wonderful experience that we had. On top of the first-rate accommodations, we really enjoyed walking the trails, exploring the uniqueness of property, and experiencing all that the surrounding area has to offer. Our kids would have loved it, but this just happened to be a "getaway" trip, and it more than served it's intended purpose."

Indiana Travel Tips

Getting to Indiana Vacation Rentals

There are two main travel hubs to Indiana. If you are traveling to the central or southern regions of the state, you will fly to Indianapolis International Airport. The airport hosts all major North American carriers and has regular commercial flight connections. If you are traveling to the far southern parts of Indiana, the most convenient access point would be Louisville International Airport in Kentucky. The airport is located just across the Ohio River which forms the state border with Indiana. For travelers who will be spending their vacations on Lake Michigan and in the northern parts of Indiana, the best airport to travel to would be either Chicago O'Hare International Airport or Chicago Midway International Airport. Technically, this area falls into the greater Chicago Metropolitan area even though it is part of Indiana. From all these airports, there are good public transport links into the cities and surrounding areas. There is an extensive rail network which provides easy access to the major cities. If you prefer, you can also hire a car and drive to your vacation destination.

Attractions and Activities at Indiana Lake Homes

One of the most popular vacation destinations in Indiana is Lake Michigan. The state borders only a small portion of the lakeshore but it is where many of the vacation homes are concentrated. Because Indiana is on the southeastern shoreline, visitors can benefit from magnificent sunsets over the lake. Favorite pastimes include fishing and boating. Many of the lakeside communities are quite seasonal and become hives of activity during the summer months. There are often fishing tournaments and other fun-filled events that take place in season.

If you want to explore some of the lakeshore, you can hire a canoe or kayak and go for a leisurely paddle. There are several State Parks where you can enjoy nature trails, go for hikes and spend the early morning birdwatching. The Dunes State Park is a section of land along the Lake Michigan shoreline which is ideal for wildlife viewing. There are many other state parks in Indiana where you can go hiking or mountain biking. In the south central part of Indiana, you can visit the Bluespring Caverns in Bedford where you take a boat ride through the caves. Indiana has a rich cultural heritage and this is evidenced by the many museums dotted throughout the state. Several are dedicated specifically to the artistic heritage of Indiana.

Visitors to Indiana Cottages

Indiana is a great family vacation destination. Whether you are fishing along the shore of Lake Michigan or hiking a nature trail, there are many different outdoor activities that you can enjoy as a family. There are also several fun amusement parks that offer rides and entertainment for kids of all ages.

If you are an outdoor-type person and want to explore nature, there are many state parks where you can go mountain biking or hiking along the nature trails.

Seasons to Visit Indiana

Indiana has attractions that can be enjoyed throughout the year. For those who want to enjoy the lakes and parks, the best time of year to visit would be during the summer months. The temperatures are generally hot with the occasional thunderstorms. The peak travel season is during the months of July and August which coincide with the summer vacation season. Many families choose this time of year to have an extended family vacation.
