  • A Perfect Blessing!

    "My family had been through many emergent medical situations over the past 6 to 8 months. We were in desperate need of time together to uplift one another, fellowship, and gather as much strength as possible from one another for the road ahead. I came across this listing on HomeAway, and thought it would be perfect! I had no idea just how perfect it would be. First of all, Scarlet is an absolute Angel on earth! She is so kind and eager to help make your stay comfortable and enjoyable in any way possible. My family and I hadn't had a chance to all be together in that type of setting in over 20 years! If I typed 10,000 more words, I will never be able to describe the overall healing and positivity that took place. We were able to find shelter in our storm so to speak, and we found it in the comfort and serenity of Scarlet's home. What a blessing!"

  • Anniversary Weekend

    "This was a great house for a multi-generational family stay. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we did not get to enjoy the beach and lake as we had hoped, but we did get to the zoo and outlet mall. The zoo is sad and funny at the same time. Definitely NOT a place for animal activists! The outlet mall has a great selection of stores and some good bargains! I would also like to give my thanks to Kim and Kelly at Uptown Cakery, who made a beautiful anniversary cake for my husband and I! While the house was, for the most part, very clean and cared-for, there were a few things that I would like to comment on. For starters, despite having a nice ping-pong table in the lower-level family room, there were only two worn paddles and no balls. We were able to pick some up on our grocery run to Meijer. In addition, while we understood that the house would come with "starter" supplies of paper goods, they were mostly diminished rolls of toilet paper and one 1/2 roll of paper towels, and there was very little liquid dish soap and no dishwasher soap. This was very frustrating as we had to go out a second time to pick up supplies. There were several things (the red wagon on the porch, the fireplace on the lower level, the jetted master tub to name a few) that appeared to need repair, cleaning or other attention. We did have a big problem, which was the hot water heater going out on the second day, and when we contacted Jill, she was quickly there to try to fix it. She could not, but had a plumber there early the next morning. I felt that she was very hands on to that effect, but that perhaps she left the cleaning and stocking of the home to others who were not putting forth the same level of effort."

  • Highly recommend! Great value, clean, well appointed, and spacious!

    "This rental was perfect for our large group. The owners are wonderful to work with, go above and beyond normal expectations, and offer unexpected perks for their renters (beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, kayaks - to name a few). The location can't be beat. Besides being walking distance from a beautiful beach with soft white sand, Chicago is less than an hour's drive west. To the east, about a half hour, is an awesome outlet mall in Michigan City. We were very pleased and if we are ever in the area again, we will definitely stay again."

  • Beach Getaway

    "We just returned from a weekend staying at this lovely rental. This beach property is right on the beach and photos here do not do it justice. This rental is part of a cluster of rentals (studio, 1 bdm, 2 bdm, 3 bdm, and 4 bdm (which is up on a higher dune)). One of the nights we had a beach camp fire with other rentals of their properties, had great conversations with new friends, and made s'mores for the kids. Also, the sunsets were beautiful. First, the beach. You are right on the beach. You walk down a few steps to the beach - which is private. The beach area in front of house and the surrounding houses is private for the community. It wasn't that crowded and the sand is clean. Second, property amenities. The owners to have 2 kayaks you can use, as well as some chairs and umbrellas. I would bring my own beach chairs and umbrellas - which we did. If you have kids, they do have sand toys to use, but you share with their other rentals. Third, the rental. The rental we stayed in is very bright, clean and airy. There is A/C in case you are there when it is very warm and humid. It sleeps five. They had all the utensils needed to cook. Besides bringing your bathing suits and food for cooking (and paper towel), you are set for the beach life. We woke up in the morning and had coffee on our private sand dune overlooking lake michigan. Since we are early risers the beach was empty except for those getting their morning walks. Because we made some great friends with the other rentals we were able to see the other rentals. Be advised that the rentals are two houses that were divided into rental units. All have their own private entrances and private decks/sitting areas attached to their rental. But unless you want to be friendly you really wouldn't know there were other people on this property. The beach is big and private enough that you don't have to share space. The Dunes. Yes you park up on top of the dunes and do have approx 50 stairs to walk down. The reason for this is that the house is on the beach and there is no way to get to the house except to come down the dune. As much as I dreaded this trip back up, I packed so that I used many handled bags to carry food and such to make is easier to come down in one trip. You are able to walk down to the Indiana Dunes State Park (5 minute walk) and have access to their trails and dunes. We plan on booking a fall weekend at this place for a quick weekend getaway."
