A lovely home

  • 5 of 5

There is many things to like about the property but we are in our 70's and the steps we unexpected and scary. The house should be brought back to its glory days and not go down hill. The dirty carpet you see as soon as you open the door is unpleasant but over all it's a lovely house. The kitchen is nice and the rooms are a nice size. The deck is restful and offers a lovely view.

GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed here for my bachelorette party (about 13 ppl total), and it was the perfect spot! Short walk to the beach with amazing views from both decks. Colin was very responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this home for your next Michigan City visit!

Great House, Great Views and Great Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation! The house was perfect, plenty of beach chairs, toys, rafts, etc. There was plenty of room for our large group to spread out, including a big 6th bedroom in the basement that we did not expect! We will be returning next summer!
