This property is well-maintained and location is great.

  • 5 of 5

Beach access is very close by and location is near other attractions. The house is comfortable; nicely decorated in beach motif; everything you need is there and in good working order. The listing description and photos on VRBO accurately describe the property and location. I highly recommend this rental and hope to be back sooner than later.

Thank you to the owners,

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed with another couple and 2 toddlers. The location was perfect proximity to the beach. The house was well equipped with everything we needed and decorated so cute. I grew up spending summers a few blocks away and love this area. It is the perfect vacation spot for young families and weekend getaways. We had a very relaxing and fun time staying at this cottage. We will definitely be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. The location of this cute house was awesome. We could just walk to the beach and back in 5 minutes! Great for our napping family members:). The owners have thought of everything in the home that you might need. It's decorated beautifully and has plenty of space for our crew of seven. I would definitely return and highly recommend it to others too!!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time at the cottage. It was decorated beautifully and well equipped with all out needs and more! Very close to the beach entrance and great patio for a evening of grilling and roasting marshmallows.

The cutest little cottage and fantastic beach

  • 5 of 5

First time to Michigan City. I grew up in Indiana and can't believe we never came here as kids. I brought my nieces as a special getaway from some tough family times. They had a BLAST at the beach which is just a short walk over the dune. The cottage is a dream. I NEED ONE! Decorated so cutely and with all the nice modern amenities - granite, stainless steel, etc. The beds were very comfortable and linens and towels were clean and fluffy. It's a small cottage, but plenty of room for our group of 8. The kids especially liked the loft area. The owners have thought of everything. When ever we had the thought of "that'd be great if there was xxx" ... there it was. Highly, highly recommend as a getaway for couples, girls weekend, or family.
