Why Marie or Ted Choucalas chose Michigan City

Family friendly, you are at the beach on the back porch. Just a few steps from the local playground, pool, basketball and tennis courts. 40 minutes to downtown Chicago via the SouthShore or drive 1 hr,

50 minutes to Notre Dame Football stadium. Two waterparks to choose from within 40 minutes travel time. A Splash pad and small zoo within 5 minutes from the cottage. Less than a 10 minute walk to Lake Michigan.

What makes this cottage unique

Located right on the beach of Lake Kai or just a 5-minute walk to Lake Michigan with a boardwalk pathway to the lake. We have wagons to help carry the load to the beach.

The fishing is great too!!

Our wonderful beach vacation was just outside the back door. It was the perfect vacation to share with our grandchildren. We enjoyed the pool, the park, the sand and the home. We all left with memories to treasure for many years.

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house across the street last year and had no idea what we were missing with Lake Kai. Having your own sand beach/kayaks/canoes/fishing right in your backyard is truly amazing! Marie and Ted were phenomenal hosts! Definitely planning on staying again!

A weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Even in January, this was an awesome place to be. Gathered up my scrapbooking girlfriends and headed to this very quaint little beach house in Michigan City, In. The owners Ted And Marie make everything so inviting. Rooms are so cutely decorated and the sleeping arrangements were awesome for our size group. It's a cute little place on a private beach area. We had such a great time, our group booked in February and March also. So for these blah winter cold weekends this time of the year, it's a great place to check into. Everything is close. Casino, Outlet Mall , Shopping, Dining or an evening walk on the Lake Michigan shorelines. Thanks for a great place Ted and Marie. We will see you in a couple weeks.

It was love at first sight! The house was decorated beautifully! Updated appliances

  • 5 of 5

Ted and Marie are wonderful to deal with. Very accommodating and helpful. We even had some amazing cupcakes waiting for us in the fridge! It is a great family place. Lots of rooms , beds , enclosed porch ( which my husband and i used to get up early to have coffee and watch the geese on the lake ), a great deck below that. , - a few fun coZy sitting spots around the outside and the dunes just a few block away. It is a place u would want to take your family and your granchildren and have a vacation altogether there. Highly recommend this place

Great Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and were thoroughly impressed with the accommodations. Our group had 4 children under the age of 5 and they have a blast. Short walks to the beach with the help of a wagon made it easy to get there and coming back to the place and sitting on the patio while the children played in the sand for the rest of the evening. We can't wait to book this place again next year!
