Overview

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!

Don't hesitate.....Book this cottage NOW!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend getaway! The cottage is beautiful, cozy, and spotless! Linda is a joy to work with and made our trip effortless. I am almost hesitant to write this review because we would like to keep this jewel to ourselves! In fact we are already looking at dates to go back.

So unique!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very unique cottage. First of all, all the other reviews are correct. The detail and thought that went into this home is beyond words. We especially loved the fireplace, and with the cold rainy days and nights it was perfect. The shower is amazing! I came home wondering if I could make some of those changes. Linda was so sweet to work with, we hope to come back. Don't miss the short walk to the beach, Stop 50 Pizza on the way to the cottage, and must eat dinner at Bentwood (better make reservations) and Rosie's for breakfast.

Surpassed our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

After viewing the pictures from the sight, our expectations were high. Everything about the cottage surpassed our expectations. The cottage is very cozy, but not small by any means. All the decor is very interesting and tied together very well; you can spend hours just checking out all of the neat stuff. It is neslted far enough off the road that you have total privacy. The cottage is also immaculately clean; not a speck of dust to be found. And of course, it is nice being so close to the beach.

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!!
