Hello! My name is Kim. I have been an Airbnb host since June 2017! I have hosted over 150 stays and over 600 guests. I love being an Airbnb host and sharing the beautiful lake cottage with guests! I enjoy hiking at the Indiana Dunes and other local trails. Kayaking and canoeing are two of my favorite hobbies! I spend a lot of time at the beach collecting beach glass and making beach glass jewelry and other creations. I became a certified yoga instructor in 2010. I love yoga and meditation. I have owned a small local food business since 2004. My hope is that every guest that comes to the lake escape will have a few more amazing memories to add to their life. I hope you will book a stay and enjoy everything the lake cottage has to offer. Please feel free to ask any questions. I want to help in any way! Hope to see you soon! Kim
