  • July 2016 Family Vacation

    "We rented this house for 5 adults and 5 children, all under the age of 7. It was perfect for us. The huge wrap around porch was a big hit with the kids, as they were able to ride their small bikes there. They also enjoyed riding around the cul-de-sac, which was not busy at all. One of the biggest hits for the kids was the front yard was so sandy and they could play in it with their sand toys. The back upstairs balcony was perfect for watching fireworks off in the distance and both balconies for just relaxing in the evening. This was our 4th time at Beachwalk and I can't say anything bad about this place. Plenty of parking both in the front and the back. We did rent a golf cart separately from the house and that was a big hit as well! And only 5 minutes from Blue Chip Casino."

    "We had a wonderful stay! The views of the lake and Chicago skyline are gorgeous and we enjoyed watching the sunsets each night. The waves during stormy days were also impressive. We enjoyed multiple hikes in the area and also walked to the park each day (5-10 minute walk) for the kids to play while the adults played tennis and basketball. The house is spacious and well appointed. We found everything we needed during the month we rented the home. The kitchen is stocked with just about anything you'd need with top of the line appliances. The game room downstairs is full of fun (foozball, pool, air hockey, golden tee, darts) and there is a ping pong table outside. There are plenty of board games to enjoy as well. Peter (owner) was great to work with and communicated very well with us. He addressed any questions or requests very quickly. He also spent time giving us recommendations on things to do in the area. Peter certainly cares about his guests and their experience in the home. I highly recommend this property for a wonderful stay with family or friends, or as a peaceful getaway to enjoy some nature."

  • Winter Wonderland

    "We arrived at the Birchwood cabin on a snowy winter evening, what a surprise to be greeted by a shoveled drive and small lighted Christmas tree. Ian, the owner, checked in soon after to make sure we arrived safely and we had everything we needed. He told us wonderful stories of the origins of the cabin and of Michiana Shores. The cabin is perfect place for two people to escape from the rest of the world. We went into New Buffalo and ate at the Bentwood Tavern - a place I had never been to in all my visits to the area. The food and service were great and the sky was full of snowflakes on the drive back. After a wonderful night's sleep, we awoke to 6 deer outside the bedroom window. No visit to southwestern Michigan is complete without a meal at the Stray Dog Bar and Grill. The food was wonderful (the fish taco's are the best!) and the staff was so helpful and friendly. We stopped at Barney's for supplies for our evening meal and headed back to the Birchwood cabin. Bundled up against the cold, we took the short walk to the beach, crossing from Indiana into Michigan on the way. The roar of the waves got louder as we neared the entrance to the beach, the power of Lake Michigan in the winter is truly amazing. We spent the evening sitting in front of the fire. The kitchen is well equipped with anything you might need. We made a huge salad and homemade pizza and wrapped in a cozy throw, I must admit I dozed on the couch in front of the fire. It was a splendid day. The Birchwood cabin is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of your everyday life, especially in winter. I would love to see Michiana Shores alive in the summer. We may just have to plan that trip soon. I would highly recommend that you do the same."

  • Incredible family friendly home for our last minute accommodations!

    "I don't even know where to begin! We were looking for a place to stay for two nights on our way from NE to NY with our family of 7. It was very last minute (we called from the road and gave only 6 hours advance notice!) Marian was so friendly and wiling to help me in my moment of desperation. Our whole family was amazed when we walked into her lovely home. We have kids ranging in age from 8 months to 11 years and this house was absolutely perfect (and clean!). The moment we walked in the door the kids went straight for the bookshelves where they found the best types of toys, very neat and organized (and easy to put back away when they were done playing). The pictures don't do this home justice. The decor was so much fun and looked like it was done by a professional. It had a fun retro feel. The whole home was so bright and airy, including the basement which was perfect for our kids! It was full of beds on wheels so they had fun pushing them all together for their movie night. We took advantage of the beach chairs and the walk to the beach couldn't have been easier. We had the entire private beach to ourselves and the kids had a blast! I enjoyed lounging in my chair and watching the fun. We enjoyed hotdogs at Depot Hot Dogs (which is surrounded by a lovely park like yard) and my husband and I enjoyed take out from the Miller Bakery Cafe. We look forward to our next stay at the Cool Beach House!"
