CUTE!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage. Excellent sleeping arrangements. All the amenities you could want in this type of property. Close walk to the beach. Short drive to outlet malls, restaurants, etc. Perfect for our mom's weekend away, but I can see looking to reserve this for a vacation with my family in the future. Anders is AWESOME!

Trolls

  • 5 of 5

We came up to Michigan City over the weekend for a girl's trip/bachelorette celebration. It was a nice place for the 5 of us to stay. The beachwalk community was a very cute and fun place! We loved it and enjoyed the short walk to the beach path from the house.

Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your house! :)

Recently stayed here with my family and we had a great time!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and we had no problems during our stay. The resort is amazing with the pool and easy access to the beach. We were able to rent a golf cart for the weekend which made our stay even better. Anders was great to rent from and he was easily available with any questions. We will for sure be coming back next summer!

Charming and Fun Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the Troll's Den. Very comfortable for our family of four; the kids loved the bunk beds and mom and dad loved the master bedroom with its little porch and cool breeze on a hot summer day. We loved the Beachwalk community as well, and would go back any time. Plus, Anders was very helpful and accommodating when it came to booking our trip.

Cute house in a lovely community

  • 5 of 5

We went for weekend away with a bunch of 30 & 40 somethings who had never been to "The Dunes" and we all had a great time. I'm a lifelong resident of the Midwest and can't believe I've just now discovered the joy of having a freshwater ocean in my back yard. We will be back -- again and again.
