Located just 60 minutes from Chicago and 50 minutes from South Bend, this home is perfect for summer vacations, weekend winery tours, and Notre Dame sports weekends.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We live in the suburbs of Chicago. I am an interior designer and my husband is in real estate. We have been renting properties to vacationers in Harbor Country for over 7 years and we enjoy offering well furnished homes to families for vacations they will cherish for a lifetime!
Why the Owner Chose Sheridan Beach (Michigan City, IN, USA):
We have been enjoying the NW Indiana/SW Michigan lakefront for years, but had been searching for a house close to the beach. When this house became available, we jumped on the chance to have a waterfront property. The house needed to be completely gutted and rebuilt including new plumbing, electric, HVAC, flooring, bathrooms, kitchens, etc., which gave us the opportunity to design and furnish the home so it is ideal for summer vacation rentals.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
How You Dune is a great place for kids. Our large yard offers privacy for get togethers on the deck and lots of wide open space for kids to run and explore. It's easy to run back and forth from the water to the house, sunsets are at your fingertips every night, and the sounds of the waves crashing reminds us we are someplace special!
