About the Property
A unique combination of colonial antique and modern decor.
Three queen bedrooms with large sleeping loft. Large eat-in kitchen with separate dining room. Three-way fireplace between dining room and living room. Large back deck and enclosed front porch. Satellite TV and DVD players in all rooms, Wi-Fi internet. Washer/dryer. Ample parking space. Within walking distance to the beach, shops, and restaurants. Merchant House I is also a short driving distance to golf courses, casinos, wineries, and a one-hour drive to downtown Chicago. French doors open to a huge deck that leads to a custom built, stone seating area and fire pit. Plenty of seating for large groups, family and friends. The deck combined with the stone seating area will accommodate 30 people comfortably. Combined with our other vacation home, Merchant House II, which is on the same side of the street, one lot down could be considered for a combined rental for larger groups such as corporate getaways, weddings, etc.
