Guestbook comments from the owner

From our Dunes House guest book...... another younger perspective!



We had a great time! On August 26, we celebrated my Grandma's 93 birthday. All of my cousins came for the party. We went to the beach every day. We played bingo and other games. This is the third year of coming to this house, we love it here!

Work Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had 9 staff from our organization stay at this amazing house for 2 days and I have to say that the airy layout, well-appointed kitchen (with the exception of the coffee maker which I have been told has been addressed with a new Capresso coffee maker), and very comfortable sleeping arrangements was just perfect for the work we had to do.

The outdoor spaces were well layed out, and our brief walk to the beach took moments on a private road. The kitchen was a central feature we all enjoyed since we spent a lot of time at dinner doing some "team cooking". We found everything we needed, had plenty of seating, and the dinner table and settings were like what you'd find at home.

We didn't use the washing machine or dryer, but used the dishwasher, microwave and oven and found everything in order. We did have one person who could have benefited from the elevator (yep, it did seem like there was a working elevator), but we could never figure out how to operate it, so better instructions would be helpful there.

Overall, we'd love to come back out for our next retreat. In fact, I'd consider bringing my own family out here over the summer. A very lovely space.

Our Dunes Haven

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed in this lovely Dunes house for four years now, and hope to come back again and again. There usually are eight of us -- the two of us, our son and his wife, and our daughter, her husband and their two toddlers. The house is perfect for all ages -- plenty of bedrooms, a big living room for when we're together, and a lot of hideaways -- not only the bedrooms but the porches and decks -- when we just want to sit alone and read or snooze. The master bedroom is huge, as is the upstairs bathroom, with its vast shower, which is worth the trip in itself. The screen porch is perfect for loafing and big enough for family dinners beside the grill. The decks and lawn are great for the kids. The beach is about a block away, an easy walk: handy steps go straight down to the beach, which is much less crowded than the bigger main beach up the road. Mount Baldy, the huge sand dune, is just down the road. The kids love it! There are many nearby farms for berry-picking in season. Mostly, we cook in and the kitchen is great -- all the cooking comforts of home. The setting of the house is perfect: other houses are nearby, of course, but the surrounding hills and trees makes us feel we're far from the outside world. Most days, cross breezes keep the house cool. Air conditioning takes over when the real heat hits. The Dunes are a little short on restaurants and stores, but Bartlett's, a quick five minutes away, is a real addition to the eating scene and Chesterton, with its restaurants, stores and Saturday farmers market, isn't much farther. The Duneland Beach Inn, on the other side of Michigan City, is great for more elegant dinners. The house is beautifully furnished --the owners have given it a personal touch without making guests feel that they're trespassing in someone else's home, not an easy balance to strike. The listing description was absolutely accurate. The house is scrupulously clean -- Michelle sees to that. Service is excellent: one day, a passing tree trimmer knocked out the TV connection. A quick phone call to the owner had a repairman around instantly. For disabled visitors, there's even an elevator from the ground up to the first (main) floor. Over the years, we've rented several different houses in the Dunes/Michigan area. This is by far the best. We'd recommend it to anyone, and we plan to be back.

A group of Scrapbooking Ladies has visited the Dune's house twice now, and we look forward to many more. The home is amazing and well equipped. We were in need of NOTHING...it allows every luxury, and is truly a wonderful get-away experience. Working with Jim & Barbara is wonderful.

We rented the property for Christmas and we had wonderful time. It is so much nicer than the pictures. We loved the big windows and the kitchien is a dream of any women. It is a place that you will like to visit again.

AWESOMENESS IN THE AWESOMENESS!!!

  • 5 of 5
The house was great!! It was spacious and open. There were ten of us and we were not stepping all over each other. With all the sky lights and windows, the house was very well lit. The elevator was very helpful for our Grandmother who cannot use stairs. It was very clean and the kitchen had lots of pots and pans to use. The three downstairs bedrooms were very nice and worked well for the seven people who slept in them. The bathroom was accomodating to all. The living room upstairs had plenty of seating for all of us and the dining table was big enough for all of us to eat together. The master bedroom and bathroom was AWESOME!!!! Everybody wanted to use the jacuzzi tub. The outside was very nice as well. The screened in patio was large and the grill could accomodate all of our cooking meat needs. We could hear the lake at night because it is only a block away. Jim and Barb, the owners, were excellent. They were easy to get ahold of and they answered all our questions promptly. I would recommend this house to anybody who is thinking about renting it out. Usually, the pictures on the website make the house look nicer than it really is. This house was much nicer than the pictures of it. Thank-You for a fantastic house to rent!

Tired we trudge
The sun-rouged dune
With burns and empty juice boxes

We rebequeath you your tranquility
O beach grape and
Little foxes

The Dunes House was the perfect setting for our family gathering from around the US. Eleven of us (including four young'uns) were easily housed, with lonely spots still to spare outside the gathering room.

I've been coming to the Dunes since I was born 46 years ago (my grandparents lived in Dune Acres), but this was the first time I've seen tree frog and fox. A fitting goodbye to the region as we head overseas, but if we return to visit, the Dunes House will be at the top of our list of places to stay.

Thanks, Jim and Barb!
