Guestbook comments from the owner

I never thought a reunion could be such fun until I contacted Terri the lovely manager of Terra Cottage. She gave us the idea to rent the Cottage for our reunion during Halloween weekend. The Main house slept myself, husband, his sisters and their families as well as my 3 kids so comfortably it felt like a home away from home! We even rented the guest house as a surprise getaway for our parents. There is so much to do in Michigan City and the location was in the center of it all. We all had a great time. Thank you soooo much Terri- You're the Best.

Terra Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband's family traveled in from Scotland for our wedding and stayed at Terra Cottage for a week. Since there were 7 of them, including 3 kids (and 5 more adults who made it later in the week), this house was perfect for their needs. It was exactly what I was hoping for in terms of space and location. It was clean, although there was some wear and tear- it was nothing major at all. If we ever called the owner with any questions, she was very quick to respond and helpful. The house was in walking distance to play areas and the beach. When they come back to visit, I know they would love to stay there again!
