Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely beach home and is everything it's advertised to be. Plenty of room to spread out with wonderful places to sit outside in the front and in the back. Very close to a beautiful beach that was clean and never crowded. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. Overall, a great experience.

A hidden gem and amazing value

  • 5 of 5

This house was an amazing place to stay for our family of five. When my husband booked this, I'll be honest, I had some trepidation. Some other parts of Gary can be a bit rough. But the small beach community of Miller Beach is a gem. It's a quiet leafy community right on the shores of Lake Michigan. There is a small "downtown" of Miller Beach that has some little restaurants and bars and is a great place to stop for dinner. And it's only 40 minutes from Chicago. An amazing location which is kind of "undiscovered" in the wider world!

In addition to the location, the house itself is great. While it's an older home, it is clean and comfortable. It's a good size for a family. There are two large bedrooms and a smaller bedroom. The family room is comfortable and attractive with a nice comfortable couch for watching movies or TV. The kitchen/dining is small, but comfortable and functional. But our favorite part of the house was the back deck. It's a beautiful breezy place to have a meal, a beer, or just hang out. And there are no mosquitoes!

The house is not RIGHT ON the beach, but it is two houses away. I think the walk from the front door of the house to the water itself is about 3 minutes. We walked barefoot from the house and the beach. We also felt comfortable leaving our chairs on the beach while we walked back to the house for kid naps or lunch. The beach itself is clean with soft white sand -- ideal for kids and families and sun bathing!

Overall, what you get in this house -- for the price -- is amazing! We think this is the "Deep Value Play" of Lake Michigan beach houses. We'll definitely be back.

Great beach home!

  • 4 of 5

We brought our family of 6 here for an affordable beach vacation and were not disappointed. The house offers a great layout and has all of the amenities that you need to enjoy an extended stay. The deck was great and we loved the kitchen for cooking most of our meals. The best part was the availability of the beach - just a short walk from the front door with access to a private beach which was perfect! The neighbors were great and the area is perfect for a relaxing time.

Great property at the beach

  • 4 of 5

We come to Miller beach for number of years. We love the beach. This house is right by a very nice almost secluded part of the beach stretch. The house itself proves everything you need In the home away from home. It has a great layout inside and great deck outside. We spent a lot of time on the deck dining,reading, playing with kids, relaxing. Overall very happy with our vacation this year.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

So happy we chose to stay at this wonderful home. Guests included my sister's two teenage sons and my three year old son and special needs daughter and it fit us perfectly. The beach is close and wasn't crowded, the neighbors were very helpful, and the house had plenty of space and was plentifully supplied with everything we required. I looked very hard for somewhere that would be safe enough for a small child and my special needs daughter but provide enough fun for everyone and am happy to heartily recommend this rental. Thanks a million for a wonderful five days. Looking forward to a return visit. Oh! Special kudos to the Eighteenth Street Brewery! What a gem.

Nice Vacation Home close to Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this nice house last summer and it worked out very well. It's comfortable, clean and quiet! The split level layout of the house is good for together time and alone time. We loved sitting on the deck and enjoying the stars at night. It just steps from Lake Michigan. The beach here is miles of fine sand, no need for beach shoes. We walked over to the local restaurant and had a great time. Miller Beach has a friendly vibe.

We'll will definately return!

Car: recommended

The Indiana Dunes are beautiful and the sunsets are spectacular over the city of Chicago 50 miles away. Our home is literally 60 steps to the dune entrance. Just 3 houses off the beach.
