About the owner: I grew up right here in Michigan City, it's a great place to live, a great place to stay. Renting is my second successful business, the first being an advertising service based in Chicago. Although I currently live in Illinois, I take every opportunity I can to visit the old home town. My hobbies include boating and painting, in fact much of the artwork you will see in the Crooked Cottage is original work.
Why the Owner Chose Sheridan Beach (Michigan City, IN, USA):
This House is one of the Best on the market. Lake Shore Drive is a very scenic in the first place, and the Crooked Cottage itself is within easy driving distance of the many attractions that Michigan City offers. The House is about a hundred years old, so it is never lacking in character. Our direct beach access lets out onto a magnificent shoreline that never gets too crowded and always has the best sunset views. Plus two doors down there's a castle!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The atmosphere is relaxed, the house is as close as it gets to the beach with a charming walk through a tree lined path to the dunes and beach. The house gets shade, sun and most importantly privacy where many others don't. The deck is extra sized and includes plenty of comfortable seating and napping space. The walk out to the light house is just about a mile there and back and makes for very pleasant exercise. this particular stretch of beach is just the right balance between empty and crowded. There is always more than enough room to stretch out, but if you are the social type, new friends are just down the beach. the sand is smooth and soft, perfect for sand castles.
