About the Property

Fresh 2 Bedroom Home That Sleeps 6 With Hide-a-bed, secluded deck & fenced yard

Located central to everything 1/4 mile from Lake Michigan, 5 minutes from Four Winds Casino, Blue Chip Casino and two golf courses and the Lighthouse place outlet mall. Rental supplied with 2 passenger golf cart but you can upgrade to 4 passenger, 6 passenger or even 8 passenger limo golf cart for additional fee just contact us for details. The driver of the golf cart must be 21 or over and a licensed driver. Home is turn key with everything we could think of that you might need, 100 DVD, condiments, pots, pans, BBQ supplies, dogie treats, so-mores, firewood, games, laptop, laundry detergent, dish washing detergent, bongo drums (kidding on that one), card games, good books, cooking oil and spices, beach towels and more.

Just bring the food and the beverage of choice and enjoy the Cozy Cottage.

House has a large living room with big screen TV and a full DVD library to choose from. Excellent kitchen, whirlpool bathtub, full laundry, and a bar area.

Large rear deck with grill for outdoor enjoyment. Fire pit and fully fenced back yard

Location is in the middle of everything. 5 miles from Four Winds Casino, Blue Chip Casino, New Buffalo an Michigan City. We are on a highway and you can hear cars in the front of the house but the sleeping area in the back is good. Amtrack operates a 100 mph train a few times a day and you will know when it is coming, thankfully they do not run late at night with the last train about 10 PM Michigan time.

I would stress with one word what you will find in our cottage 'Sanitized'.

We clean this unit ourselves and do not use a service, everything is laundered and bleached, floors are 100% ceramic with throw rugs and you will find the entire home immaculate I am sure. You will never find any sign of a pet and we use ozone generators between guests.

Car: Recommended

Location is across the street from the Grand Beach golf course and Lake Michigan beaches and a golf cart is included in the rental package with permit for use on course. Whittaker woods golf course is also less than 5 minutes away. A liquor store is 3 doors away so e-z to get to that has some household items as well. We are on a highway location within 10 minutes of New Buffalo, 2 Casino's, 100 plus store outlet mall, Michigan City, Zoo, Museum, numerous restaurants, 2 public beaches and Grand Beach a private beach.

Within 20 minutes drive you have a choice of winery's, antique stores, Journeymen's Distillery, another great Museum, Orchards and more.

There is a lot of fun things to do in the Chicago Rivera.

New Buffalo is 5 minutes drive with a lot of interesting shops and delightful restaurants. We also operate a charter boat for sunset cruises.

Various wineries are in the area as well as a unique Whiskey distillery.

15 minutes drive in La Porte you will find a unique county museum with an Automobile collection including a Tucker and a gun collection with over 700 antique firearms.

Within 5 minutes each direction you can visit our Casino's Four Winds is a large Indiana Casino and Blue Chip is a boat in Michigan City.

The Barker mansion in Michigan City is a worthwhile tour of a turn of the century estate.

There is a kids playground and tennis courts about 2 minutes away by golf cart in Grand Beach.

About the owner: Owner operates a golf cart business right next door, and lives 10 minutes away. Happy to assist with your visit as we were on the tourism board and know the area well.
