  • Fantastic Peaceful Getaway

    "My family I recently stayed 5 days, 4 nights and had a great, relaxing time. There were 4 adults, two children, and a teenager and there was more than enough room for all of us. The house was very clean and was stocked with all but food. We arrived Sunday before official check-in time, and Albert was fantastic and let us check-in early! We dropped our bags off and made the short 5 minute walk to the beach. The beach was GORGEOUS!. Soft sands and crystal clear water. On the ultra clear days, Chicago skyline is very visible from the beach. Since the house is located in a community, you also get the benefit of the beach being private!. Monday-Thursday, there were literally only one or two other families on our stretch of beach! The Indiana Dunes and Marquette Park are each a definite must, as both offered amazing views of the lake from the top of a dune. If you are looking for a place that was vibrant nightlife and places to go each night, this will not be the place for you, but if you are looking for a quiet relaxing time with all of the necessities, then this will be perfect. I would definitely stay again, as essentially having the beach to yourself, on a hot sunny day, with nothing but the sound of your kids and the small waves hitting the shore, is priceless. Small bonus, there is a Doe and her two fawns that live in the wooded area behind the house, we got to see them multiple times. :)"

  • 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!"
