About Ray Reiss

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 Ray Reiss chose Gary

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Lots of space, great beach location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ray's for a large family gathering and had a wonderful time. The house is just steps away from a very clean, family-friendly beach. We're hoping we can do it again next year!

Once Again

  • 5 of 5

well, now that we are comfortable wearing shoes and presentable attire (although how presentable do you have to be in SoCal?) again, I can submit my review.

From California, Texas, and Germany we gathered to do the most precious, priceless thing in the world-spend time with family-cousins , grandchildren, brothers and sisters, grandparents.

we cannot express our pleasure of spending all that time at the Loon s Nest. Thank you for providing a great house with plenty of room and all we needed. This was our third stay that started with 3 days, then one month the next year, and 6 weeks in 2016. See you in July 2017!

Very impressed

  • 5 of 5

We were just there for my son's wedding. We came up from Kentucky and were very pleased. My Daughter-in-law had worked very hard on her wedding, ran into a major snag at the last minute, but was able to find this place. Truely was a blessing. We plan to make another trip when we can stay a little longer and enjoy the Dunes. Denise

Great times at the loon s nest!

  • 5 of 5

This was second time here and everything was great. We took turns on each side of the family visiting and we had plenty of room whenever we got tired of each other. Everyone that cooked always said"I want this kitchen at home" it is a beauty! The beach time was unforgettable, every day-early morning quiet walks; the rest of the day on the sand or in the water and of course those terrific sunsets. Thank you Ray and Sara for all your help.

Hope to be back Summer 2016

We loved this place

  • 5 of 5

We were here at the end of July and really enjoyed your house. We have been renting houses for family reunions for the past 15 years all over the mid-west. Never have we stayed in a house that was so well stocked with the necessary supplies. The house was very comfortable and well laid out for our crowd. We had a baby sleeping in one of the downstairs bedrooms where our talking and laughing wouldn't wake him and my 86 year old mother only had a half flight of stairs to get to her bedroom.

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.
