About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Home, just 100 feet to the beach!

Charming home located in desirable Sheridan Beach and just 50 miles from Chicago. The house has 3 comfortable bedrooms (1 king bed, 1 queen bed, 2 twins). The screened-in porch offers 2 twin daybeds - great For hanging out. The open kitchen/dining and living space are brightly lit with skylights and lots of windows overlooking the garden and lovely landscaped backyard. The huge yard features an oversized covered deck with a large dining table and seating areas, plus a large grass area for playing and relaxing outside. Bed linens and bath towels are provided, as well as beach chairs (please bring your own beach towels). Our beach house is just a few steps to the prinstine sand dune and beach on Lake Michigan. What could be more perfect than packing a basket for the day and spending it on the beach. The very short walk along the path lined in dune grass slowly blowing in the breeze leads you to the breathtaking sight of what seems like the never ending shore line. This beach has been compared to the National Seashore of Cape Cod.

Local activities include Michigan City Zoo, Washington Park, public tennis courts, championship golf, Michigan City Marina, Blue Chip Casino, Lighthouse Outlet Mall, antiquing along Red Arrow Highway, summer farmers market, fine dining and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore with hiking and biking trails and miles of soft sandy beaches.

NOTE...7 night minimum stay July through Mid August

Our women's group settled into Sandcastle for a magnificent weekend of long walks on the beach, cozy dinners at home, and dancing around the fire pit at night. It was everything and then some for all of us. The cottage is situated right across from beautiful Lake Michigan and filled with everything you would need to enjoy a cozy fall weekend with friends and/or family. Thank you, Sandcastle, for making this a weekend we will never forget!

Two weeks of relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Sheridan Beach area for many years and this our first time renting at this location. We were very happy with the home and all it has to offer. A bathroom with walk in shower and a powder room on the main level and a bathroom with walk in shower in the basement. There is also a second refrigerator in the basement which is a great feature. The wifi kept us all connected to the real world when we needed it and the short walk to the beach took us miles away from it. We spent our nights out back under the covered patio enjoying the outdoors. The owners were very easy to deal with and quick to respond to any question or issue. Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Annual Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love this house and look forward to this trip each and every year.

It is so close to the beach literally across the (not-so-busy) street , has plenty of room, and allows us to spend time together in the yard even if it is raining. The owners are always great in replying should anything come up or should you have any questions. The marina is close too so other family members were able to bring wave runners and boats and still be a part of the trip. We can't wait to go back next year.

Comfy and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend and had a great time. The living room was very comfy, and the back porch with the big table meant eating outside comfortably, or playing games in the evening no matter the weather. Of course the big draw was the beach, which is very close. Just out the door, turn, and climb the dune. The house was clean and cozy and a great place to sleep and chill after spending the day at the beach.
