  • 3.5 stars Unique/cozy/warm/cottage-like, but could use some cleaning up!

    "We stayed at this home in June for my parents 50th wedding anniv. I have 7 siblings, and we came with no small children, just siblings, spouses, and my parents. 17 of us in all. It was the perfect place to host our large group with plenty of space and a very warm, cozy, cottage-like feel. I do believe we'll stay there again as we loved the setting. However, I do have some honest feedback to provide Scarlet in hopes that the place can be improved for more renters. And so that upcoming renters are aware -- I do believe Scarlet wants the best for her renters, and I think honest feedback will help that. 1. Kitchen - In the description, it says "top quality kitchen amenities." This is HUGELY overrated. The kitchen is very nice and unique, but I would not describe any of the appliances top notch by any means. We had 8 women in the house and we all agreed the place needed an overall clean-up. The oven and fridge, and the kitchen in general, was just dirty. Pots and pans were super disorganized and the cabinets were very messy. It was difficult to find anything. The appliances are not new or even updated. 2. The grill leaves much to be desired. When we arrived, there were 3 live mice IN the grill. It was filthy and needed to be cleaned out. This was disappointing since we were grilling! The backyard in general was beautiful, but the outdoor patio furniture, again, was dirty and old. Which made the patio area not feel very inviting. So much potential! 3. Deposit - it took about 8 weeks to get my $500 back. We left the house cleaner than we found it. Scarlet was very difficult to get a hold of and a bit disorganized. I sent her my address in two different emails, called her, emailed her again…. and finally, she got back to me saying she didn't have my address. I had to send it by email AGAIN and I finally got a check in the mail after I pursued her on about 6 different occasions. She was very apologetic, but I still don't think this is acceptable. 4. The bedrooms were very accommodating and nice sized. Very quaint and unique - and Id love to hear more history on the house itself! It seems like the back half might have had an addition after the original build… it'd be cool to see a book about the history of the house. Bedrooms/bathrooms all seemed clean. 5. The house in general really was lovely. For a home that is rented out, it could def use some freshening up and updates, etc. But like I said, we hope to stay there again as a whole family! Thank you!"

  • Idyllic and Well-Maintained Getaway Close to Quiet Beaches and to Chicago

    "This peaceful property in Beverly Shores made for a fantastic getaway for my wife and two 4 year old boys. The house itself is situated on a quiet, well-manicured lot, surrounded by trees and thoughtful landscaping. The front garden has a multi-level pond/stream, complete with resident frogs and accent lighting for the evening. The back yard is less landscaped, but includes large pine trees and a huge wraparound deck. While you can hear the passing trains along the lakeshore, the environment is peaceful. Outside, you'll also find a gas grill that's like new as well as a hammock, situated among a grove of red pines. The wraparound deck is HUGE and there is plenty of furniture for guests to lounge and an outdoor sectional, ideal for an afternoon nap. There is also a very large hot tub near the gas grill that's clean, easy to operate and in great shape. Finally, there is a huge firepit, surrounded by new wooden Adirondack chairs. The house, itself, is in immaculate condition. Built in 1948, the owners have updated the house throughout while maintaining the integrity of the structure. The A/C is virtually silent and the bathrooms are fully updated, despite the age of the property. All the beds are in great shape with firm mattresses and clean sheets. The kitchen is a bit small, but the appliances are all new and high-end. There is an expansive dining area with huge picture windows and a field-stone gas fireplace. There are more than enough beds and bathrooms to accommodate a fairly large group. Wifi and Dish network are also included (so the kids won't drive you crazy). The property is located less than a mile from the Indiana Dunes, featuring sparsely populated beaches. You're also not far from Michigan City, so shopping is very convenient. Great options for delivery (I recommend Gelsosomo's Pizza) and for take out. There are several decent dining options nearby as well. If you need more than that, you're only an hour or so from Chicago so you can enjoy the tranquility of the Dunes shoreline as well as the nation's third largest city. All in all, I can't think of anything negative to say about our stay. The owners clearly take great pride in the property and that shows in every detail. I strongly recommend this property to anyone seeking a spacious and modern rental, with NO unpleasant surprises and proximity to civilization while also offering a tranquil getaway."
