About Katie Stack
I grew up in Michigan City and always admired The Parsonage from my school bus. My husband Joe and I have had a beach home in the area for 17 years now and we enjoy all the seasons in Michigan City with our entire family. Great beaches, shopping, casino, restaurants and all of Harbor Country close by. We met the Hoovers this past summer and were wowed by this property and saw this as an opportunity to own this very special property while involving ourselves in the exciting changes happening in Michigan City.
Katie Stack purchased this House in 2017

PERFECT! This home is gorgeous, great floor plan, walkable to everything.
We stayed three nights, and have family memories to last a lifetime. The home's location is fabulous. It's a block from the outlet shopping, coffee houses, restaurants, and shops. The beautiful sand beaches are minutes away, Washington Park, and marina. The home was well equipped with kitchen cooking items, children's toys, plenty of comfortable seating, a very relaxing atmosphere. The neighborhood is quiet and has sidewalks. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you Katie.
Wonderful hosting you all for your son’s wedding weekend. You were such nice guests and we hope to see you again! Enjoy your summer!
Amazing Stay at the Parsonage!!! Fantastic House with everything you need!!
Everything about staying in this beautiful, cozy home was wonderful!! Katie & Joe Stack are the most accommodating, pleasant people we have ever rented from! I truely cannot say enough good things about this couple and their home they rent! The home is immaculate, close to the beach, 2 blocks from a great coffee house and across the street from the outlets!! In case it rains and you want to shop :)
Katie leaves fresh pastries from the local bakery on a cute bakery dish in the kitchen to welcome you into their home! They also have 6 extra beach chairs they let you borrow!
We had the best time here making memories with our family!!
We would definitely stay in this home again if we come back to Indiana Dunes!! We wish you all the best Katie and Joe!! Hope to see you again! You guys were awesome!!

Lovely historic home in Michigan City, IN
Enjoyed a long weekend with close friends at this stately home. A cookie jar filled with home-made chocolate chip cookies and a wooden bowl of delicious apples greeted us in the kitchen.
The accommodations were very comfortable. Large dining room table for meals, conversation and games. The home is conveniently located across from Lighthouse Place Outlets. We also enjoyed a delicious meal at Fiddlehead Restaurant. Other restaurant choices were within walking distance. The hostess was readily available by text and phone calls for any questions .we had. Would definitely stay here again.
So nice having you and your friends. Please visit again!
Beautiful property in a perfect location! The house is oozing character and uniqueness!
Perfect walking distance from several bars and authentic restaurants. Directly across the steeet from the outlet mall. The house itself is beautiful and has tons of character, with plenty of social space for large groups. Also it's kid friendly with lots of toys and outlet covers. Overall I plan on coming back every year! Very positive experience!
We were so happy to have you and your family and hope you will visit again!
