Why The Owner chose Michigan City

We now live in the Indianapolis area, but I grew up in Michigan City and spent many sunny days on the shores of Lake Michigan. I still can't think of another place I'd rather be for a summer vacation. A friend from Indianapolis said to me while visiting Sheridan Beach, 'You've always talked about the beach here, but I never imagined that it looked like this!' My husband and I, with our four children are very excited to spend a large part of our summer here and are anxious to share all of the fun that Michigan City has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the versatility of using one single unit or accommodating our large extended families and filling the whole place!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two kids and our friends and their two kids just returned from a wonderful mini vacation in Michigan City. This rental is absolutely perfect! We stayed on the main level and even with 4 adults and 4 kids there still seemed to be ample room to rest and relax. This place was nice, very clean and well stocked with everything we could possibly need. The kitchen had every utensil imaginable, plenty of dishes and lots of pots and pans. There is a washer and dryer in the basement for which we were grateful to be able to wash our beach towels and swimsuits before making the drive home. If we weren't on the beach or eating, we could find our kiddos in the basement having a blast playing ping-pong. Don't worry about packing beach equipment because they have you covered... there are extra beach towels, life jackets, tons of beach toys and rafts and beach chairs, and even a couple of kayaks. We truly enjoyed every moment of our stay and we all feel it was definitely too short! My family and I don't vacation very often but we are hoping to make this trip again in the future. I communicated with the owner mostly by email and she was such a huge help, answering all my questions and even gave lots of suggestions.

Jill, thank you so much for sharing your place with us! I think it's a gem and look forward to staying again sometime!

Wonderful family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six enjoyed our stay at the house. We especially liked all the extras that were included for the beach. We used the kayaks, raft, beach chairs, and coolers. Loved the short walk to the beach. We were in the upstairs and enjoyed all our meals outside on the porch. The inside furnishings were comfortable too. Our kids loved playing ping pong in the basement and using the grill. We look forward to staying here again and have talked positively to our friends and family about the property. We met Jill and she was very nice and helpful.

You will not be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a lot more than we expected. We stayed in the bottom unit. It was clean and the bedrooms were big enough to sleep us 7 very comfortably. Everything you could possibly need is here. Beach toys, chairs, rafts, a kayak and lots of towels. The kitchen is fully equipped, there was even a crock pot but we didn't use it. We grilled every night. The washer and dryer was so convenient to wash the towels after a day at the beach. There's a tv in the family room and one in the bedroom that has a vcr player. There's a decent selection of movies and books. The title of this property is very appropriate, the beach is literally a 5 minute walk. There's a zoo about a mile away that's small (2.5 hours to walk through) that's great. We shopped at Meijer for groceries. The owner was always quick to respond to my questions. This was one of the most relaxing trips we've had considering there was 7 of us and 2 were babies. Oh, and the sheets were the softest sheets I've ever slept in. I'd definitely come back here again. Thank you Jill for thinking of everything.

What a fun couple days!

  • 5 of 5

A few moms and our kids (teenagers) went up for just two nights. Just fantastic. I don't give it 5 stars because it was super high end or anything. But...I give it 5 stars for the price, location and how well it was represented and so easy to deal with Jill, the owner. We were in the upstairs unit - and the kids were able to stay in the bunk room and the moms stayed in the other two bedrooms. Just perfect for what we needed. I will definitely try to stay here again! Everyone was super friendly and helpful and we had a great time. Thank you!

Tranquil beach house LOCATION!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful vacation home. The owners have thought of every detail! We stayed in the top unit where you could see Lake Michigan. Location, location, location!!!!! Loved the size and decor of the place. Every amenity available in the well stocked kitchen. The unit is immacutale. Being from Florida, it was so enjoyable to sleep with the windows open and the cool fresh air breezing throughout the room. As well, we loved the expansive deck, where after a long day at the beach, we would wind down and enjoy an evenig cocktail.

The proximity to the beach is a one block, 3 minute walk over the dune where you sit in the (singing sand) and enjoy the panoramic views of the sunset with a backdrop of the lighthouse and Chicago skyline in the distance. A must see!!!!! Now after the sun has dropped below the horizon, you can see a blanket of stars over the lake.

After we got back from the beach, we decided to venture out to one of the many local restaurants within a 10 minute drive. We also went to the zoo, which was within walking distance. Towards the end of our week stay, the weather was a little cooler, so we went horseback riding and to the apple orchards. Lots of fun activities in close proximity to this wonderful home. Everyone that we encountered on our vacation were very warm and friendly.

Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise!!! Will definitely be back, and highly recommend this place to our family and friends.
