About Peter Brown

Originally from Chicago, now living in Florida and Ogden Dunes.

Peter Brown purchased this house in 2007

Why Peter Brown chose Ogden Dunes

This is a great place - Ogden Dunes is a very safe community. only one road in and out. The people are so friendly - it is hard to believe that the house is only one hour from chicago. This is our family house and with my daughter in college and unable to visit in the summer we decided to rent it part of the year.

What makes this house unique

There is so much to do there. It is a great place and we love it...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Peter – We certainly enjoyed our week spend in your home. • Everyone was comfortable and had plenty of room. I personally had a very restful week.• My sons and grandchildren have a great time using the game room especially the pool table.• Beach access and the rear deck were beyond expectations.• My wife and daughters in law loved the kitchen and its appliances. We weren’t sure we returned everything to its correct drawer though.• It took us until Friday to get the TV working but that was probably a good thing.• My sons especially liked how the sound system played their I pod music.• The internet service was rather slow. Your neighbors on the east side upstairs were especially friendly to us and came over for dinner one evening. Her children played with ours each day.• I’m sure I’m leaving some other positive items out. There were so many.

We had a wonderful stay! The views of the lake and Chicago skyline are gorgeous and we enjoyed watching the sunsets each night. The waves during stormy days were also impressive. We enjoyed multiple hikes in the area and also walked to the park each day (5-10 minute walk) for the kids to play while the adults played tennis and basketball.

The house is spacious and well appointed. We found everything we needed during the month we rented the home. The kitchen is stocked with just about anything you'd need with top of the line appliances. The game room downstairs is full of fun (foozball, pool, air hockey, golden tee, darts) and there is a ping pong table outside. There are plenty of board games to enjoy as well.

Peter (owner) was great to work with and communicated very well with us. He addressed any questions or requests very quickly. He also spent time giving us recommendations on things to do in the area. Peter certainly cares about his guests and their experience in the home.

I highly recommend this property for a wonderful stay with family or friends, or as a peaceful getaway to enjoy some nature.
