  • LOVED this place!!!!!!

    "We are from the Washington DC area and booked the Lake House to stay in because our daughter got married at an orchard in Bloomington and none of the condos in downtown bloomington were available. I am a city girl. I am NOT a cabin in the woods girl. BUT....this cabin was amazing. The pictures really don't do it justice, in my opinion. It was clean, beautiful, and more than suited our needs. I catered the wedding and, though I'd done most of the cooking in DC and transported it, the kitchen in the cabin was a Godsend to be able to do the finishing touches. I brought much of my own equipment, but could have packed much lighter. There's plenty there for most cooks to be able to put a meal together. I wish we had planned to stay longer to be able to really relax and enjoy the place and the surroundings. It feels superbly secluded, but you are still within about 10 minutes of suburban civilization (grocery and other shopping and restaurants) and 20-25 minutes of [the very cute] downtown Bloomington (We strongly recommend the Irish Lion restaurant on Kirkwood Avenue). There are journals on the living room table in which previous guests have written about their stays in the cabin. We enjoyed reading those the first night. We did use the hot tub, which was incredibly welcome after an 11 hour drive. We didn't get to meet Peter and Suzanne, but I spoke to Peter on the phone a couple of times and he was incredibly nice. If it weren't so far away, this would be a place we would ABSOLUTELY frequent."

  • Beautiful and Spacious Retreat

    "Everything about our experience was fabulous! The process of arranging the rental was easy and convenient. The owner was incredibly helpful and accommodating. The property itself was even more beautiful than the pictures showed. The house was spacious and appointed beautifully. We especially loved the back decks and lakeside fire pit. Getting to ND campus is convenient and easy. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly! We would highly recommend!"

  • Perfect for our family!

    "This cottage is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, 2 blocks from a beautiful sandy beach. Most days the sky was clear enough to see the Chicago skyline. We took the train from the Miller station into Chicago to see the sights. The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed for a great stay, including awesome beach chairs! There was even a ball for our kids to play four square on the perfectly shaped concrete patio outside. Miller Beach is a well kept secret. The manager of the rental was friendly and helpful. We met many friendly people and enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!!!"

  • Nice, quiet getaway from life's distractions.

    "My husband and I were looking for a nice, quiet place between Cleveland and Chicago to meet up with our 2 daughters in college in those cities. This fit the bill to a T. Lake house was clean, cozy and my art student daughter especially loved the mid-century decor. Girls grumbled at first to have no internet or TV but we did puzzles and played cards and laughed and enjoyed each other's company, just what we wanted to do together. Loved having such close access to quiet beach as well. My oldest daughter was tickled by the "love letters" on the wall in the front bedroom since she has the same name."
