"This location is prime for a trip to Santa Claus World- now known as Holiday World. The rooms are larger than the pictures make them appear. There was more than enough room for my husband, myself, and three children- ages 2, 2, and 3. Right outside is a barn with many cows that the kids absolutely adored! Be warned that if you go in the summer, and are not use to the country, the cow smell might surprise you at first.... but having the cows outside the windows was completely worth it. We also went for a few walks up the gravel road and found a turtle and there were tons of frogs in the yard. Because the kids are so young, we spent a lot of time at the house. We had all of the meals at the house. There was a grocery store about 5-10 minutes away, so we could get all we needed.
I have to include that we have stayed in VRBO places before and this was the first one that provided laundry detergent, dish washing liquid and detergent, and coffee. It is the small things that make a place special. I would also like to include that we had a few minor glitches in our stay, but the owners were above and beyond accommodating. They were so kind and thoughtful to all of our needs. We had an open line of communication after our stay. For that, I am grateful.
I would recommend this property to anyone. We will return to this property for our next Santa Claus trip. Thank you for all of your kindness."

"We just got back from a great getaway to Beverly Shores. The house was perfect - everything we had expected from our research & speaking with the owner... a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We had mixed weather as can be expected around this time of year but we were able to enjoy the beach just a few blocks away as well as all of the other sites in nearby Michigan City & Michigan. We had a few trips over to the outlets which was just a few minutes away by car, we went to the zoo, the casino & a couple quick trips over to a some fave restaurants in nearby New Buffalo. Best of all, the house was comfortable & cozy for the days and nights we just wanted to relax, cook dinner & drink wine on the patio or walk the beach. Completely private, the house is a perfect quiet getaway but when we were ready to get moving, everything we wanted to do was a quick ride away. Thank you for such a relaxing stay before the busy summer ahead of us - we can't wait for out next visit!"

"My family and I stayed here for a week while visiting Valparaiso for a family wedding. We could not have been more pleased. We had young children with us and could not have imagined a hotel situation for that long. This rental offered all of the comforts of home including our preferred lifestyle of daily walks and nature explorations, crafts and game activities for the kids, and shared family meals. We loved our time here and the owners were completely respectful of our privacy, always notifying us if they were going to be on the property. It really was a dream come true in the midst of what otherwise would have been a high stress week! Thank you for a lovely stay. We will definitely reach out to stay here again if we are in the area!"

"This was an awesome place for our "homebase" during our trip to Nashville. It was easy to find. Everything was just as it was advertised. Clean, comfortable beds, and close to everything. Probably the only downside was that it is located right on the highway. The traffic started early in the morning, so for light sleepers, it probably isn't a good fit. The showers were luxurious. I would recommend this place for anyone for a getaway."
