Beautiful secluded lakeshore house surrounded by nature.
"While attending A July retreat in the Chicago area, I had the good fortune to find a rental house on Lake Michigan , that also served as a wonderful lodging for me during my retreat. This beautiful three bedroom,split level, charming lake house,is surrounded by beautiful nature vistas,visible, thanks to the full length ceiling to floor windows in most rooms.This
enables the light to play beautifully on the warm, wooded paneled walls, as well as provide great illumination, even on a cloudy day. The house has the ambience of a secluded space, but the Michigan shore is a mere block away. A well stocked and organized kitchen adds to the pleasure of cooking,and makes dining in a real pleasure. At the rear of the house is a peaceful patio and barbeque area for good weather use. Artistic touches within the house invite the guest to enjoy the peace and calm within, or enjoy any of the electronics;phone, stereo, or TV, DVD,with thoughtfully provided instructions making it easy to use any of these devices. The ambience of this house in the forest setting makes one reluctant to depart.In the future, I look forward to sampling other seasons on this special property."

"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!!!"

"My wife and I did nothing for five days except eat, sleep, read, write, play Scrabble, and take long walks with our dog. We hope to make a return visit soon, and we've recommended this rental to others. The owners went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was a pleasure. One caution we would give: the property is down a rather steep incline. We had no trouble driving or walking up and down the hill, but others might, especially the elderly. Tip: If you bring large items, such as a cooler, you'll have to walk it down a small hill to get it inside. But in general, the Red Cottage is the perfect, quiet getaway at an affordable price."

"I recently stayed here for a conference held downtown and it was my first time to visit Indianapolis. This was the perfect home. It is close to many nearby eateries and grocery stores and convenient for getting downtown. There is a great welcome book with directions for getting around and suggested places. Claudia and Steve were fantastic and made sure that I had everything I needed. The cottage is beautiful, spacious, and the outdoor gardens were lovely. Traveling alone, I felt very safe staying here. This is a very comfortable, quiet, and amazing place to stay and I cannot say enough good things about the home and the homeowners. I would definitely recommend this cottage and I look forward to staying here again next time I visit IN."
