Property Details

Indiana Beaches Vacation Rental: Exceptionally maintained vintage cottage. Fireplace. Fire pit. Conveniently located between Michigan City Indiana and New Buffalo Michigan. Sleeps 4. Max occupancy: 4.

(Peak season rentals: Sunday - Sunday with one week minimum stay)

This charming vintage 1940s cottage is one of the original homes built in the beach community that would become Michiana Shores. Attracted by a beautiful combination of woods and lake, residents from Chicago, Indiana, and Michigan have made their way to this serene spot for rest and relaxation for many years. Today, the cottage has been updated to provide the cozy comforts you desire, while maintaining the knotty pine interior and welcoming feeling of a traditional cabin in the woods. Curl up in the main room by the two-story fieldstone fireplace with a lofted ceiling. Enjoy drinks on the screened patio or by the backyard fire pit table. Take a stroll on the gentle trails to watch the sunset on the lakefront, possibly spotting families of deer foraging among the trees or drinking from the creek. Experience the calm, quiet breeze of a warm summer night in the woods, or turn on the central air conditioning and relax in total comfort. The Indiana Dunes and all the wonderful offerings of Michigan's Harbor Country are close by, making this your ideal getaway.

Bring food, drinks, personal items, and the good times.

"Very Nice House"

by Robert V.


For a pet friendly house, this was the best we've stayed at. Great location and a very cozy house. Fully stocked kitchen and great fireplace! We'll be back.

"Great COVID Escape for Two!"

by Kristine S.


This rental was a great place to get away from home, be safe, and enjoy the numerous outdoor options during this time of being socially and physically distanced. We found this lovely Michiana cottage exceptionally clean and comfortable, well stocked, and a perfect location to enjoy this quiet neighborhood on foot, or wonderful biking ride along the lakeshore. It was a short drive to the Indiana Dunes State & National Parks where we spent a few day trips, and also easy access to the New Buffalo area just over the Michigan line. Sad that the private beach access is closed due to efforts to contain the erosion, but still wonderful had views! Highly Recommend!

"Cute Cabin"

by Elma J.


This cabin was cute, clean and had all of the amenities we needed. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of linens, beach towels, etc. I also give the owner kudos for having a nice collection of games and DVDs for us to watch, we spent a lot of time hanging out in the loft. The property manager was responsive to all questions that we had. It is a few blocks from the beach and we rode our bikes there almost daily. The cabin is a bit small, I think it would get crowded if your family is larger than 3. But if you are going to be out and about most of the time, I don't think it is a big deal.
