A little piece of tranquility in Harbor Country can be found in Harbor Dunes. The small private community a mile from town and Lake Michigan hosts about 50 homes and is your own paradise. The winding roads that cut through the trees and natural surroundings are great for walking in the evenings after a day at the beach or for the kids to get out of city life and ride their bikes freely and safely. Harbor Dunes also offers an association pool that the residents and guests have access to. If the waves are too high for the kiddies, you still have a place to let them splash and an area for you to relax, get some sun and enjoy your family. If this already sounds like your perfect vacation, wait till you see the Chalonna Retreat.
The heart and spotlight of this home is the very large screen porch off the front of the home. You can’t help but notice the beautiful white curtains pulled back to let the breeze in. You may grill and enjoy outdoor dining on the porch while you listen to the sounds of summer. There is also an area to just sit, enjoy a drink, talk or just catch-up on some reading.
The three bedroom home will sleep 5 to 6 adults comfortably and 8 total. There are two bedrooms on the main floor that share a full bath. The first room is geared more to kids and hosts a nautical theme. There is a pottery barn bunk with a full bed underneath. There are some games and a desk to help occupy the kiddos after the beach. The second room on the main floor has a queen bed and its own entrance or exit to the back porch that comes with some seats and bench if you’d like to have a little morning coffee and a few minutes of peace before everyone is up and running.
Going upstairs you will find a small loft or den area that has a pull out couch for one adult or maybe two small kids. This is the perfect spot to let the kids play while you get dinner going. The master bedroom has curtains that adorn this beautiful four poster queen bed. There is a master bath with tub and shower and there is your own balcony outside to take a few moments out for yourself during the day.
I think you will find the Chalonna Retreat is a perfect spot to enjoy a week in Harbor Country. The home does come equipped with a Beach Pass so that parking for the public beach is free and convenient. Enjoy local restaurants, farmers markets, breweries and the two casinos that are close by. Don’t forget Harbor Country has two beautiful state parks on either side - Indiana Dunes State Park or Warren Dunes State Park. There is more than enough to keep you and the family enjoying all Harbor Country has to offer.
