HISTORIC STORYBOOK LOG COTTAGE STEPS FROM PRIVATE BEACH

Michiana House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Original 1932 log cabin filled with romantic charm; a quiet getaway to another place in time just 70 minutes from Chicago. Recently featured in the October 2012 Country Living Magazine ( also October 2010 Midwest Living Magazine), this picturesque cottage is nestled under a canopy of old oak trees with a private beach just steps away. The 3 bedroom (2 double beds, 1 twin) 2 bath is surrounded by beautiful gardens and is a wonderful getaway all year round. There is a charming back porch (heated) which feels like being in a tree house with 42 inch flat screen TV, screened in front proch with porch swing, great room with fabulous fieldstone fireplace, gazebo with 3 hickory sofas perfect for intimate dinners or lounging and a wonderful beach 200 steps away.

Wake to the birds, go to sleep to the sounds of the lake and silence, enjoy coffee and cocktails on the screened in front porch, sunbath, beach walk, antique, shop, dine, ride horses, relish lush greenery and peace or just relax in a refined rustic enviornment. Ralph Lauren would approve; a dream come true for anyone who wants more than average!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a long weekend here. The house was perfect, great location, lots of character, and had everything we could possibly need. Linda was super easy to work with and we will definitely be looking to book this house again in the future!

Wish we could spend the whole summer!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the charming home with so much character, the wonderful new friends we made in the neighborhood and at the beach, shopping at Al's (nice wine and cheese selection) - just everything. New Buffalo is a nice/short trip and we all enjoyed dinner and drinks at 'The Stray Dog'. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing and lovely destination. Only note is to be prepared for stairs (from driveway to main house and to beach).

Wonderful and Unique Cottage home just a block from the beach

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at this home and fourth year in a row in Michiana. We absolutely love the peace and quiet of the home and the location! The house is perfect for our family with the big porches and the super short walk to the beach!! We love the uniqueness of the home and the basement shower/bathroom is so nice - especially with sandy kids. The owners are more than accommodating and are wonderful to work with. We can't wait to go back again next year!!

Step Back In Time…Quiet, secure, with that lake air….

  • 5 of 5
location, charm, artfully decorated with a luxe lodge feel. Kitchen is special : loved the back to the 50s. Lovingly maintained in first rate shape. Stuffed with beautiful ,interesting ,quality objects/books/utensils/towels/wash cloths/beach chairs/beach towels…Owners were extraordinarily on duty for a internet glitch. The screened in porch…the endless hot water in the wonderful beach shower area…the beautiful beach, just around the corner…Hubby golfed and even put down the cell phone and read a couple of books he found in the bedroom. Great grocery store near by, too .

A perfect place to relax !!!!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for that 'enchanted cottage' feel...look no further. This is it. It is adorable in spades. Located only a short block away from the beach...this house is charming to live in. Every room has its own unique decor. You can cuddle up with a good book in one room and take a nap in the next. The beach is totally private and we usually had the entire beach to ourselves. Everyone that came to visit commented how cute everything was.
This is a perfect place to kick back and just relax. I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect Michiana 1930s cottage. The huge stone fireplace was wonderful for the cool spring evenings and the two screened porches kept us cool during the day. The decor is design magazine worthy, so it was no wonder the cottage was featured in a recent issue of Country Living. The care and detail put into the decor and comfort of the cabin are outstanding. And the proximity to the lake (1 block) made trips to the beach easy.
