Magnificent location for beaching and relaxing by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully updated 50's era home that was unique in it's can live on the huge deck and that's about what we did as we had great weather. We had guests over as we lived in the area and it is a fantastic house/location for fun.....great if you have younger kids too.

Thanks so much, we had a wonderful time!

Spent one week at the home, 5 adults and 5 kids. Everything was perfect and just what we needed. Beach was fabulous. Great proximity from Chicago.

Lake Michigan was visible and steps away. The accommodations were perfect for our family of seven.

  • 5 of 5

The leasing agent and home owner where extremely helpful and kind, that made all the difference from the transaction to our stay. Anytime there was an issue or question they took care of it and responded promptly. Our accommodations for 8 persons were very comfortable. We were able to find the necessary food locations for the organic foods we eat and that includes a farm near by to purchase the best raw milk and farmed eggs. If I were to ever travel again to visit my family in Indiana I would definitely look into staying here again. We all had the best time!

Excellent lake view property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience using VRBO and we had an outstanding experience at that! Tracy and Emmett addressed all our needs and concerns. We traveled from Virginia by car and Emmett personally greeted us and made us feel "at home". The property is well kept and has EVERYTHING you need. The kitchen is well equipped, the large family room was great for all of us to interact. The bedrooms were cozy and each one suited our family. There was plenty of cleaning supplies, towels and anything else you could think of. You only need your groceries! The basement room downstairs was great for extended family to visit us from Chicago. The location to the lake - you couldn't ask for anything better. It would have cost more to stay at a hotel with 2 families and with this we got a value! Highly recommend this property and can't thank the Emmett and Tracy enough for everything. Thanks for making our vacation stress free! Sincerely, Sally and Patrick K

Welles Street beach
Car: recommended

Miller beach is 36 miles from downtown Chicago. We are steps from Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Park and 1 mile east of the new Marquette Park, originally called Lake Front Park, is a municipal park completely surrounded by the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Its primary elements include 1.4 miles of white sand Lake Michigan beaches, inland ponds, impressively high sand dunes, wetlands, a lagoon, and indigenous oak savanna. The park is located within the Miller Beach community. Miller Beach was once an independent municipality. However, in 1918 shortly before the establishment of Marquette Park, the Town of Miller was forcibly annexed into the municipal boundaries of Gary, Indiana. The park includes the Octave Chanute museum, registered as a National Landmark of Soaring.
