Car: Recommended

Located just 45 minutes from downtown Chicago, Miller beach offers a quiet, clean, friendly getaway for Chicago area residents and others. Surrounded on three sides by the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Park, and by Lake Michigan, the area offers plenty of birdwatching, several nature trails, and quiet, sparsely occupied beaches.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: We purchased the house in 2013 after falling in love with the Miller Beach Area. As Chicago residents we appreciate both the proximity to the city, and the small beach community atmosphere.

Why Miller Beach, Gary, IN, USA:
This property offers the best of all worlds, a garage-top deck for enjoying the view, a fireplace for cooler nights, and plenty of communal space while still offering ample private bedrooms.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property's proximity to the beach is a definite attribute, as well as the small touches such as a porch swing, working fireplace, and modern layout and decor.
