About the property

Very private, furnished 3BR, 5BA home in Dune Acres. This home has 3600 square feet and sits on 4 wooded acres.

Walls of windows showcase the grounds, which have staged gardens and native dunes vegetation. There are three bedrooms, and each has its own private bath.

Inside the home, everything has been provided for you, including dishes, linens, silverware, pots, pans, steak knives, EVERYTHING.

There are two washers, two dryers, two storage refrigerators, a full-size industrial freezer, and even a greenhouse.

This is a wonderful vacation getaway but has all features you'd expect from a high-end home. It doubles as our second home, so it is well appointed and the items inside are of great quality, fresh and near new (if not brand new).

We have purposely limited the occupancy to prevent excessive wear and/or damage. This means that you are walking into a well-appointed and clean home for your vacation.

Multiple decks surround the home with a beautiful brick patio off the kitchen. The open living, dining and kitchen area is ideal for entertaining or a relaxed time away.

Dune Acres is a guarded community that has many town amenities, including tennis courts, ice rink, a beautiful and private beach, clubhouse, and miles of hiking trails. It is an easy walk to the beach.

You just need your toothbrush and bathing suit, and you're on vacation!

Perfect Summer Getaway in Dune Acres
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Beautifully appointed property in a private estate, close to beach.

  • 5 of 5

Spot on description of location, layout and amenities. Provided an ideal base for a family holiday.

Very clean and well maintained throughout the whole house.

The owner Terry was extremely efficient with regards to dealing with the whole process from booking to leaving. His communication made life easy and enjoyable.

Would definitely recommend this property.

State park -remarkable, make sure you do the 3 Dune Challenge, Chesterton is a must especially the ice cream parlour. Round the Clock restaurant - great food! Shopping - outlet in Mitchagan City (very cheap in comparison to England).

All in all, a first class holiday, thank you Terry.

Tree house for grown-ups

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful. We had a wonderful time in the "tree house." Waking up with the sun rising through the trees and the many skylights was delightful. The stairs up from the first floor were a little intimidating with young kids, but we appreciated the oriental screen from the closet. Using that to block the wider railings kept the kids away from the highest point of the stairs. We brought along a large play yard for the 9 month old. I enjoyed the double washer/dryer set-up. The kids thought the dumbwaiter was amazing as well as the paths around the house and screen porches. You were right about the plantings. Even with snow in April the daffodil and other purple flowers were lovely. Terry was very easy to work with and accommodating. He got back to us quickly when we had minor questions. When we got back home my husband said, " That was great. I don't feel like I need to go on another vacation to relax from this one." We visited Amish Acres one day and the Shedd Aquarium another day and relaxed at the home for two days. Thanks for a great time!

Tastefully decorated home in secluded Dune Acres

  • 5 of 5

The house was very tastefully decorated, one of the coolest kitchen tables i have seen. Set in the middle of the Dune Acres parkland, you are surrounded by wilderness. The home has plenty of space and amenities as advertised. Close access to beaches and good dining options in Chesterton. Great biking trails and the Three Dune Challenge is nearby at the State Park. Lot's to do here and the train station to Chicago is just minutes away.
