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!

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.

GREAT GETAWAY FOR ALL AGES!

  • 5 of 5
As I prepare to book again for next summer, I am still in awe of this charming home. We visited with our 12 year old daughter, and other families came for the day or overnight. While I was "sold" after seeing the listing, I worried that our daughter and her oh-so-suburban friends would think it wasn't "fancy enough", or worse, be "creeped out". Just the opposite was true - I think the girls enjoyed the house more than the adults! They discovered a new thing (the dart board) or space (the library) everyday, and we often had to "reclaim" spaces - like both porches and the gazebo - from them so we could enjoy them as well. My Mom and Dad visited on one of the last nights, and they didn't want to leave. Mom is now talking with my aunts about planning a "sisters' trip". And, that is just the house - the beach is very close and equally wonderful!

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cottage for two nights for my father's 70th birthday. It was incredible! When we arrived, there was a collective silence as we walked around in awe, marveling at the beauty of this home. Every room is incredibly well designed- it is clear that the owners have put a lot of time and energy into making it a very special place. Most of our time was either spent wandering around the home, viewing all of the beautiful details or spending time on the Lake Michigan shore, steps away from the house. The owners were so responsive and helpful during the booking period and during our stay. We are so lucky that we had the opportunity to spend time in this home. I would recommend it a million times to anyone. You will not be disappointed!

PERFECTLY CHARMING!

  • 5 of 5
Our family just returned from an incredible vacation on Lake Michigan, and staying in this wonderfully enchanting cottage! The owners have it decorated with very unique style but great live-ability! Every room has personality and charm, and you will have a ball exploring every nook and cranny! There wasn't one thing we lacked or needed, from kitchen to bath to beach. They have thought of everything! One of the best parts for us was being so close to Lake Michigan. With 4 teenagers/young adults in tow, they had the time of their lives swimming whenever the whim would strike, and being within easy reach of a warm and cozy cottage to eat, play board games and recharge! My favorite spot was the sun porch, where I would sit and sip my morning coffee, journal, and listen to the birds sing their wake-up songs. Every night, our family walked down to watch the sunset together and breathe in the great lake air. This is a perfect vacation spot for anyone looking to relax, rejuvenate, and renew their spirit.

RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend the cottage for a relaxing getaway! This is our second stay and have found the property not only to be quiet and clean but beautifully maintained. The owners obviously take special care to make everything perfect for guests. We enjoyed reading on the screened in porch and sitting by the lake on the peaceful sandy beach. Every night we enjoyed the sunset and an evening stroll. This does not feel like a rental-it feels like a home.
