Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6 maximum)
Our comfortable cottage setting is situated one half block from the nicest beach along the Indiana shoreline. Our house is located in a small section of Sheridan Beach where there is no public parking. Our huge beach gives you that uncrowded beach feeling landscaped by Indiana's beautiful dune grass. Our three season porch on the front of the house offers fabulous views of Lake Michigan in a nice relaxed setting. We are on the bluff side of Lake Shore Drive. Since the house is on the bluff, it is up 32 stairs. There is parking for 1 car on our parking pad at the bottom of the stairs.
You are also walking distance to the zoo, maritime museum, and the marina at Washington Park. Great shopping is available at the Prime Outlet Mall one mile away. Added daytime activities include hiking at Indiana Dunes State Park as well as biking with scenic lake views.
Your night life includes the Blue Chip Casino, one mile away, Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, Mi. a short 20 minute drive away, and our local movie cineplex. There are also numerous restaurants in Michigan City and New Buffalo for your enjoyment.
Fall is still a great time for relaxing on the beach, walks on the beach, apple picking, Harbor Country wine tasting and Notre Dame Football weekends.

Great place to stay!
We had a great time staying at John and Pat's rental home. The house was very clean. You can see the lake from the porch and it was only a short walk to get there. Restaurants, zoo and outlets malls were within 1.5 miles. We will definitely be back!
Thanks, glad you enjoyed your time.
Great family vacation
My husband I stayed here with our 4 young boys. We had a great time. Very quick walk to the beach and plenty to do in the area. The house was comfortable for us and they provided everything you can think of. I highly recommend and would stay again
Thanks we loved having you and hope to see you again.
Great house, close to the beach, nice owners!
My husband and I, and our 5 year old son stayed here. The house was not fancy, but it was clean and that was perfect for us! Well stocked kitchen which is great if you have dietary restrictions (you can cook your own food) or if you are trying to save money. Short walk to an un-crowded beach! Close to the park, zoo, restaurants, etc. The owners were super nice. Thank you!!

thank you John & Pat for letting us use your house
Just had a wonderful family vacation with kids at this rental. Nothing flashy here, but very clean and a great location! Close walk to the beach and zoo right down the street. Best part of this house is the porch where you wake up and go to sleep seeing that beautiful Lake Michigan. Owners are personable and helpful. Don't pass up this rental!
My wife and I had a wonderful experience staying in this rental. The house was an easy walk from the beach and made getting back and forth really convenient. The house was clean and was well stocked with all the cooking materials we needed. The highlight of the house was the sun room which was well shaded and stayed cool throughout the day but still provided great views of lake, especially at sunset. I was also really impressed with the community of Michigan City. There were fun things to do with an awesome park, a zoo, and the arts district seemed to be improving quickly. It was also just a short drive to the Indiana Dunes Park which provided some excellent hiking as well as the train that goes into Chicago. I would definitely stay at this location again!
