Such a fun studio to rent. The space definitely feels larger than the photos. Linda left us towels and SPF which was very sweet. She had everything ready to go for the grill, too! Being walking distance from the beach is always nice, too. Thanks Linda!
We (myself, husband and dog son) had a great stay at Linda's guest house. She was very accommodating, the house was super cute and we fell in love with the yard. An 8 minute walk to the beach and extremely convenient ! Thanks Linda!
We had such a wonderful time here. The place is absolutely gorgeous! Floyd's furniture, that he makes himself, is truly beautiful. It's close to the lake as well and we enjoyed walking there, only about 15-20 min. We would love to come back!
We had a lovely time at Linda's Beach Studio. Linda was there to meet us with the key and show us the unit. The studio was a wonderful, eclectic, art-filled space with everything we needed for both kitchen and bath. There was a parking space for our car as well.
It was a wild and crazy ride during our stay! A tornado wiped out the power, so the experience really did turn out to be "glamping". . . The hosts were as helpful as could be with candles and a lantern.
Note, as previous reviewers have observed, the cabin is connected by a walkway to the owner's workshop and privacy should not be something that one expects.
The cabin is roomy with a double bed in the bedroom and a futon in the living area and is furnished with a stove and refrigerator. Had mother nature cooperated we would have had everything necessary to make delicious meals with all the local produce.
Despite the historic storm that hit Michiana and knocked off the power the night before our arrival, we had a great time at Floyd's cottage. Linda was very communicative and offered to do everything within her control to make our two nights there a pleasant experience. We ate dinner on the gorgeous back patio and generally had a great a time!
We absolutely loved staying at Linda & Floyd's house. They are amazing artists and wonderful people! I felt like I was in an enchanted garden that you can only find in fairy tales! They also recommended a place for brunch that although we are not new to the area, we had never been to- Lakeside Inn was fantastic! We will be back, thank you Linda & Floyd! Cheers (pimm cup of course!)
Our stay was very nice. The studio is very eclectic and fun- we noticed something new every time we looked around. The space is small, but comfortable and cozy for two. There is a loud train close by, but there's a beautiful beach about a three block walk away. Cute restaurants and cafés nearby, grocery close as well. Linda and Floyd were great hosts, very kind.
We loved this house! It's a short 90-100 minute drive from the Northside of Chicago. The area was so quiet. No streetlights and we saw deer in the front yard. Such a change from the city. The house is very spacious because there is a screened in huge porch. There are ceiling fans everywhere which really cools down the house. The size of the house was great for us and our 2 small kids. Linda will also give you directions to the super secret beach about 5 minute drive away. It's a really small public beach but it was totally empty on a Tuesday afternoon. We took the kids up to St. Joseph = Silver Beach Carousel about 30 min away. Such great memories.
It was a great little place with lots of good artwork from Linda herself. A nice peaceful eclectic vine and Linda was really nice as well.
