The Space

Welcome! We invite you to our cozy and beautifully decorated home in Michiana Shores. It is set in a very serene yet accessible locale close to wonderful restaurants, entertainment, night life and not to mention beautiful Lake Michigan. You'll find all you need to relax and enjoy yourself in the thoughtfully appointed retreat where you will be treated as our guest.

June, July and August are weekly rentals. We can accomodate long weekends (minimum 3 nights) for other months.

Located just 65 miles from downtown Chicago and minutes from Lake Michigan beaches and harbors, this quaint home is on a corner lot with plenty of room to spread out and relax. Those who want to relieve stress and avoid the hustle and bustle of city life will find plenty of opportunities while vacationing in the wonderful environment offered by this home.

Michiana Shores offers a unique blend of pastoral settings, beautiful beaches and the convenience of nearby shopping/entertainment/sports/fun. It also provides a reasonable commute to and from Chicago via several routes including two trains and 80/94. You will find yourself breathing deeper and relaxing like never before in this wondrous atmosphere. We hope that you will enjoy it as we all do.


Our 1947 Cape Cod style cottage is situated on a large corner lot with beautiful landscaping. There's a good chance you will see horses trot by as they go to the stables from the field just a few blocks down the street. If you, the stables are just a few blocks away.

The expansive back yard yields plenty of room for fun and games! There's a croquet set in the shed for a bit of old fashioned fun. Or relax the day away in the hammock dozing as the chipmunks scurry about and the deer nibble the leaves and curiously check out your activities.

Gather your family and friends for a BBQ, romantic dinner under the stars or a game of cards. The grill is ready for your burgers, steaks, ribs and other delicious treats. Some evenings the only sound you will hear is that of the acorns falling from the mighty oaks in the yard. Sit and enjoy while spotting the constellations…you'll see every star in the sky!

The main floor has the kitchen, dining room, living room, fireplace, master bedroom, guest room and the bathroom. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the guest room has a queen bed. There are 3 TVs on the main floor (kitchen, living room and guest room).

The finished basement (aka man cave) has a bar, game table, large HD TV and comfortable lounging couches. Bring wines for the wine fridge!!

Upstairs is a finished attic with two trundle beds that can sleep 2-4 people. And a TV for the kids, too!

The kitchen has been updated appliances and amenities you would want. The kitchen is stocked with all conveniences, small appliances, dishes, pots and pans, glasses and utensils. There should be no need to bring anything from home, it's all here for you to use.

While at our home, you will have that “getting away from it all" feeling. But if you're in the mood for nice restaurants, New Buffalo is 6 miles north and downtown Michigan City is 6.5 miles south. If you prefer, there are wonderful restaurants within walking distance from our home.

The stress of everyday life melts away the instant you arrive at any of the beaches near our cottage. Whether you're relaxing on the beach as gentle waves lap the shore around you, strolling along the shore, or playing frisbee, it's apparent why people choose to spend their vacation along this side of Lake Michigan.

More details can be found on our (EMAIL HIDDEN) or in the Cottage.

June, July and August are weekly rentals. We can accomodate long weekends (minimum 3 nights) for other months.

No smoking is allowed in the house. Pets are also not allowed. We live in a residential area so would hope that you treat our home and neighbors as your own. No outside fires are permitted.

Beach and toys and chairs are available for your use. Please return to the shed after use.

We would ask you do your best to remove excess sand before entering the house after the beach. There is a hose just to the side of the house.

Upon departure, we would ask the following of you:

1) Please leave used linens in the basement next to the washer.
2) Garbage pick up is on Mondays. Would you please roll the bins out to the area next to the mailbox.
3) Thermostat - in the summer, please turn off the air conditioning before leaving. In other months, please set the thermostat at 55.
