Recent Michigan City reviews

  • Cozy stay at the Cozy Cottage

    "What a nice place to stay. The place was very clean, great layout, and cozy. You have two bedrooms, great for guests or kids. Beds were very comfortable. Having two bathrooms was a big plus too. The island in the kitchen made it easy to put food together and having a place to lay it out for guest. Outside grill was in great shape. You also get a portable fire pit, picnic table and a beach wagon for the beach. Will stay here again."

  • Troll House-Michigan City, IN

    "We recently stayed at the Troll House in Michigan City, IN. It was a wonderful weekend. The listing description was accurate. The listing photos were also accurate. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner answered all of our questions before arrival. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting beautiful Michigan City in the summer or fall. We came into town to attend a family event but others might appreciate the location for beach walks, the casino or the outlet mall. The house itself is stocked with everything you might need for a great R and R."

  • We'll be back next year!

    "We have vacationed in the Beachwalk community for six years in five different homes and this is favorite by far. This well maintained home accommodated our four families well and we loved the close proximity to the beach. The owners are very helpful and were even able to rent the coach house space to friends of ours at the last minute. This home has a large kitchen, plenty of dining space for us and lots of peace and quiet for a good night's sleep. We also spent a lot of time on the deck and covered porches. Beachwalk community is a wonderful place to vacation for families with children, there is so much to do in addition to heading to the lake. This home would work out well for just about any group I can imagine."

  • Family Fun

    "We just finished a great week at Orange Crush. The house is up to date, clean, and well cared for. The kitchen is large and is well stocked with cooking items for a rental property. The open concept made it easy for everyone to be together. The lower level or basement provides an additional large, finished area. We had 18 people each night and didn't feel crowded. The top floor which has sleeping for 8 is comfortable has it's own bathroom but lacks privacy. Overall a great place."
