Michigan City House Rental Photos and Description

House - 1 Bedroom /2 Baths - 4 person maximum at all times plus hot tub.


Sleeps 4, 2 Night Minimum! Welcome to the “Miami,” Sheridan Beach’s lakefront property with hot tub, ( OPERATING ALL YEAR ) , Jacuzzi, steam room and panoramic views of the dunes, surrounded by wilderness, beach and Michigan City’s famous Lighthouse. There is nothing between you and the fine, sandy beach except a short 3 min walk down the foot path through the sand dunes to the lake. The sand is so fine that when you drag your feet, it actually squeaks. Open either the six French doors in the living room to access the hot tub or the four French doors in the bedroom and step out onto the expansive deck or stay inside and listen to soothing sounds of Lake Michigan’s surf and the songs of the crickets in the dunes. Let the sounds lull you to sleep. Master bedroom features a king size/four poster bed; two additional queen sized hide-a-beds are also available. This is a 5 star accommodation and at an awesome, natural 5 star location. 4 person maximum at all times, day or night. Pets Considered .

The floor is covered with a super plush 90-ounce carpeting that you can really sink your feet into, master bedroom with a grandiose four-poster kind size bed worthy of a King or Queen, Two sided gas fireplace. Extra-large bathroom with a four-person Jacuzzi tub, flat screen TV, beach sand toys for children, glass-surround multi-headed shower, dual basins set in blue pearl granite, bidet, and an antique vanity dressing table.

Our little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely breathtaking all around!

I made contact through email with the owner on Easter for a last minute getaway and he was extremely accommodating! We arrived the same day. When we got to the house the view immediately takes yours breath away. The house was clean and well maintained and the bed beats any bed we've slept in. The house is beautiful with more ammenities than any hotel! The hot tub on the deck was a great way to relax and unwind from the day. We both said at the end of our stay that this was the best vacation we've been on and in big part to how great the owner and the house was! We were able to grill and cook the majority of our meals right there. Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your home. We hope to return again!

My husband and I just returned from our mini (last minute) getaway in Michigan City. This home was everything we expected and more...extremely clean, breathtaking views from every room, steps to the beach, dog friendly, and perfect location! Ben (the owner) was so accommodating, friendly, and helpful! He called me within an hour of sending a request and was extremely flexible with our last minute booking plans. He called us when we arrived to be sure everything was okay/answered any questions we had and even called as we were leaving to be sure that we enjoyed our stay. We have stayed at several vacation rentals through VRBO and this one was by far one of the best! We will be back!:)

Samuel Clemens describing his home said, " our house had a heart and soul, and eyes to see us with: and approvals and solicitudes, and deep sympathies: it was of us,

and we were in its confidence, and lived in its grace and in the peace of its benediction..

we could not enter it unmoved." For a home away from home, this rental is perfect.

The home, the setting, the care of the owners - all perfect. I look forward to returning

to this rental, truly the best.

We travelled to the area for the Notre Dame v Stanford game and stayed at this place about 45 minutes away from the chaos of South Bend during a football game. We are glad we did! The weekend was supposed to be about football, but was surpassed by our enjoyment of this property. The most striking thing about it was the view from the multiple floor to ceiling exposure to the northwest. Due to weather, we could not take advantage of the hot tub (55 mph winds). But we managed to grill and use the fireplace, which provided plenty of warmth on the super cold and rainy weekend.

The kitchen was stocked with every tool we needed. We baked, fried bacon, made pot after pot of coffee...everything you need for dishes and utensils is provided! The kitchen is VERY nice.

The weather broke on Sunday-check-out day, and we walked on the beach before checking out. It was fantastic! the location of this property is such a wonderful opportunity for water lovers.

Tips: clarify fees for cleaning ahead of time. Bring extra paper goods along with your food. Try the Shoreline Restaurant very close by for unique and VERY good local food. Prepare to enjoy. One of the nicer places we have rented. Thank you, Ben.

Owner's Response: "Tips: clarify fees for cleaning ahead of time. Bring extra paper goods along with your food." Cleaning fees. This is the first time that I have heard this, so I contacted the wife; phone message & email, who wrote the review. Her husband was nice enough to call me, but told me that he did not know what his wife meant about the cleaning. She never contacted me, but I know that I always explain the cleaning fees & have never had a problem. I am 100% sure that I explained the cleaning fees & have no idea as to why she as stated that; as she didn't contact me, to explain. " Bring extra paper goods" Yes that is always good to do as this is not like a hotel, that has maid service every day & check your toilet paper supply every day. The wife told me when she left that they just ran out of toilet paper & I asked her why she didn't ask for more, but she said it was OK. Everyone has always supplied their own, after they consume the rolls that were provided. Many people stay up to a week & all seem to understand the lack of daily maid service to monitor their toilet paper.

After our wedding we fled to the Miami for what unbeknownst to us, turned out to be one of the best weeks of our lives. We made it to the home and were warmly greeted by Ben, the owner. We brought our two dogs: our Border Collie and Rottie. We were initially worried about the location being on the third floor as our Border Collie has a bad left leg, but were happy to realize there are 3 landings breaking up the stairway, so going up and down was absolutely no issue whatsoever.

Walking into the house was absolutely breathtaking. The ceilings are angled and very high. The living area is very open and expansive. The kitchen is absolutely impeccable and setup in the most ergonomic way. The kitchenware was fully stocked with everything we could've possibly needed for our week's stay. (We cooked all meals for 6 of the days) The living room was very warm and enjoyable to spend time together (especially with all of the French doors opened up. However, most of our time was spent on the balcony with the beautiful clar view of Lake Michigan. Spending each night with a glass of wine in the hot tub watching the sunset and boats flyby was very relaxing. Walking from the balcony into the bedroom you are greeted with the 4 poster king sized bed. This bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in our entire lives. It was hard returning to our Queen sized mattress at home. The fireplace joins the living room to the bedroom via the adjoining wall, and it was phenomenal at night when it was a bit chilly on a few of the nights. When entering the master bedroom we were blown away by the magnitude of the room, along with the continuation of the extremely high ceilings and skylights that are located in each of the rooms of the home. The jetted Jacuzzi was amazing to end a nice relaxing day. The master bathroom also included a dual headed glass enclosed shower as well as a privacy glass enclosed toilet and bidet.

The location was spectacular, extraordinarily serene and quite (except for our recently adopted Rottie that discovered his bark around the 3rd or 4th evening) It seemed as even though he barked at everyone passing by (not may pass by as it is very secluded from things going on around) it seemed to upset no one around. You will only want to leave the spectacular home to trek down to the amazing beach. Ben, the owner, and Mark, the caretaker were absolutely helpful and very pleasant to stop and chat with. We looked forward to running into them and chatting.
