We arrived at the beach house and after getting up the stairs, which definitely improves your activity level, we walked into paradise. The house was elegantly outfitted. The 4 poster king bed had the most comfortable mattress we have ever slept on while renting anywhere in the world. All the furnishings were elegant and up to date. The dual fireplace would be so awesome in the fall and winter. The big bathroom was like entering a spa, complete with TV while you let the jets take you away.The solitude was wonderful; no car sounds, no noise, just the morning woodpecker in his tree. You don't even hear the boats or jet skis on the lake when you are on the deck enjoying the beautiful, unobstructed view. The views are just breathtaking from anywhere in the house. The restaurants in Michigan City were great, and the Blue Chip Casino was wonderful. This is a wonderful place to just unwind, relax and find peace within yourself. Bring lots of reading material because you won't want to leave your surroundings. The owner was wonderful, very helpful, and his son helped unload our car. The home is immaculate, very well maintained, and is as clean as your own home. All the appliances, fixtures and televisions were excellent. Furniture in the living room very comfy. Our dog, Mollymarie, loved being loose on the beautiful deck, which had a complete see-through enclosure around it for safety. The dining on the deck was great early in the morning. We apparently hit the hottest week in history but still enjoyed ourselves. The outlet mall is fantastic and has wonderful name-brand stores. The walk to the beach is very beautiful and quiet. Unfortunately we did not see any deer but I have read others have seen them. This was our most relaxing vacation but when I go again I will plan to eat my meals out. All you need to take are the clothes on your back, and your toothbrush. Ben provides the rest. This listing was exactly as promised, and customer service was top notch. This was a five star rental.
