Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: I've been interior designer for 15 years. I am a world traveller, collector, Spiritual life coach and owner of Chicago Butter Cookies. I am drawn to the woods for privacy and starlit nights. My husband and I love water, singing, sunshine, good food and travel.

Why the Owner Chose Michigan City, IN, USA:
Me and my family vacationed in the Michigan City area for many years. We always looked around hoping to find just a right second home that would fit our family needs. Being a full time residents of downtown Chicago, escaping the rat race to the dunes was always a fun treat. We loved this property so much that we decided to move full time.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the unique, secluded and peaceful feel this property offers It's absolutely magical all year round! We really connect with nature here and enjoy serenity that emanates from the tall trees and magnificent 75 acres of native Indiana woodlands. Our home sits on wetland preservation area. Sunsets are amazing too!
