About Mia Rubinstein

This is our family's beach home, we strive for our guests to have the most memorable vacations at our home.

Mia Rubinstein purchased this house in 2000

Why Mia Rubinstein chose Indiana

We live in Chicago area and it always amazes us that only a little over an hour drive away, we are on one of the most beautiful sandy beaches, with the endless horizon of lake Michigan.

The home is in a quaint/quiet beach community, yet many interesting attractions are in the area; Orchards, Art galleries, Antiquing, Theaters, Shopping, wonderful restaurants,,,all near by.

What makes this house unique

The sound of water and water reflected sunlight filled house always make us happy staying at this home. The house was full with our children and their friends, playing Ping-Pong, Foosball, or at the beach building sand castle. We have many precious memories of our stays at this beach home.

It really is as wonderful as it looks in the pics!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year renting this terrific beach house -

we love everything about it. . . It is beautifully decorated, comfortable, spacious, and is equipped with everything you could need or want. It is a very easy house to entertain lots of friends in, but cozy enough to enjoy with just the family. The views from the house and front deck are great. The beach is right across the street and the private deck with grill is a wonderful place to eat and watch the sun set. The beach is gorgeous and quiet. If you can bring yourself to leave this perfect beach, there are lots of things to do in the area - blueberry picking, golf, antiquing in SW Michigan, 18 screen movie theater in town, casino, tennis, zoo, outlet mall, along with fun and varied restaurants. My family and I give this vacation home, and the Michigan City area, our highest recommendation!

Beautiful and well equipped vacation home.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our adult children rented this home overlooking Lake Michigan during the Thanksgiving holiday. The home was very comfortable, especially the large and open kitchen/dining/family room. It would be a great place to gather in the summer as there is a very nice back deck, yard, sunroom, and an upper deck with a great view of the lake. The only drawback, as others have mentioned, is that it is really just a 3 bedroom home. The fourth "bedroom" is in the basement which is in the open and has three uncomfortable hospital type beds. It would be great for older kids or teens (if you trust they won't escape out the basement door at night). The beach is just across the street and down a flight of stairs but you have a beautiful view of the lake from the house. The house was very clean and we had plenty of towels and blankets. Laundry facilities are in the basement as well as a Fuse Ball table and a ping pong table. The house is close to restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping.

The neighborhood is beautiful and peaceful.

Great house and location on Lake Michigan

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Mia's home. The setting overlooking the lake was great. She has a wonderful back yard that we used for family pictures.

The house was spacious and easily accommodated six adults and three young children.

The game room on the bottom floor was used extensively during our stay.

The only concern we had was that getting to the beach from the house through her private access was difficult - potentially from the amount of sand erosion. But public access was less than a block away, an easy walk.

Again, overall, we had a wonderful experience. I would recommend to family and friends.

Lovely property in great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our long weekend.

Very easy to fall in love with the house.

Everything is in great shape and labeled so no hunting for utensils, pots or glasses.

Only nit is requirement to wash towels before you leave or your deposit is charged.

Really? I thought it was a vacation!!!!

Family friendly location, clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We did a quick family get-away at the end of 2015 and stayed at this location. The home is arranged for entertaining and family gatherings. Kitchen is extremely well stocked with cookware and small appliances. Location is less than 50 yards to the shore/beach. Grocery store less than 5 minutes away. Ping pong table and game room were a big hit with our teenagers. We utilized the upstairs fireplace and had a long weekend to relax. The only drawback for our guys was that there is no cable TV...however it wasn't a drawback for the ladies. I would stay at this home again.

Thanksgiving/shopping trip

  • 5 of 5

My family got together for a thanksgiving/shopping trip..this house was perfect for that. The open concept and basement space was amazing. There was a lot of ping pong played and a nice warm fire on the main level. It has a great kitchen with everything you need. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.
