Overview

Michiana Shores Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1Baths (Sleeps 6)

This lovely cabin in a private setting is spacious yet has a warm rustic feeling. Built in the 1940s, it has a stone fireplace, maple hardwood floors, pine walls, a cathedral ceiling in the living room with a cozy sleeping loft on the mezzanine, plus two bedrooms on the main level with queen beds. There is a separate dining room that seats 6 and a breakfast room off of the kitchen. The wraparound porch has chairs and a large round table for dining or just sipping coffee.It is surrounded by a very large open lawn with mature trees and looks out at a riding stables. You can sit on the large wraparound porch or walk over to the stables and take a trail ride or riding lesson in the large indoor arena. Pony rides are also available for children. The beach is a short walk, or drive for 1 minute, park in our private spot, and walk around the corner to the beach.

The decor has been thoughtfully created by a Chicago designer and builder to be unique yet comfortable.

This home has a new 95% efficiency furnace and central air, newer appliances and is very well maintained. Pets are welcome. Email for details.

The surroundings : This home sits on a large lot and is surrounded by trees. You can see the riding stables across from the private drive. Guests can take trail rides, children can have pony rides, or just visit and bring them carrots. They are very people friendly. The beach is a short walk from the cabin, and we provide private pkg around the corner from the stairs to the water if you choose to drive for the two minutes it takes to get there.

Restaurants and shopping: There is a very nice grocery store down highway 12, which takes all of 10 minutes to get to by car. If you drive another 5 minutes, you will arrive at Light House Mall, a very large discount mall with national retailers. You can also shop and dine in New Buffalo, Michigan, which is 10 minutes in the other direction on highway 12. There are boutiques and Chicago quality restaurants in town and further up along 12, or you can head into the quaint restored town of Three Oaks to see theater, art galleries, shop, or dine.

A perfect fit for our family, kids didn't want to leave

A perfect fit for our family, kids didn't want to leave
  • 5 of 5
We had perfect fall weather the weekend we stayed, with the trees at peak color. The cabin is lovely, charming and comfortable. Our boys (5 and 2 1/2) loved running to the porch each morning to see the horses in the paddock, just steps from the cabin. The parking spot for the beach was very easy to find, beach access very convenient. The kids enjoyed roasting hot dogs in the fire pit, we adults enjoyed long evenings with a big fire in the wood stove. Stop 50 Pizza delicious as usual. Took the kids to Boo at the Zoo, which they loved, we went trail riding at the stables, and took a trip over to La Porte to the Hesston Steam Train Museum for a "Ghost Train" ride. The Galien River walk was gorgeous with all the fall foliage, kids loved collecting acorns. The cabin is very well maintained with lots of attention to the small details. It DOES have a great shower as another guest pointed out. Very peaceful and secluded, but also with very easy access to just about everything the area has to offer. The only bummer is that the kids didn't really want to leave, and our 2 1/2 year old seems to think it's "our" cabin. I think he's making plans to return…we will definitely be back. Thank you Claudia, for your hospitality.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5
Cabin was very clean and well maintained. We loved seeing
the horses and feeding them carrots. Great walks with our
dogs on the back roads. Manager provided great details and
info about the rental. Enjoyed great restaurants, wine tasting
and the beautiful fall colors.

A Great Find

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with our stay. The cottage has just the right amount of old charm, the decor is very pretty. It was so nice to have parking a block away from the beach. Close to town yet we felt really "away from it all". It was fun to watch the horses at the stable. Thanks for welcoming us and our dog, Roscoe. I think he had more fun than we did!! We will be back!

Great and cozy retreat right around the corner

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay and we look forward to the next one. This Cozy cabin is an amazing retreat. Just a short jaunt from Chicago and you are in a calm and tranquil setting.

First, you wake up and enjoy your coffee while watching wild deer graze in the back yard, eat lunch on the porch that overlooks the serene horse farm, spend the afternoon playing on an amazing beach (just a short drive away), and then enjoy your evening dining and drinking wine at the fire-oven pizzeria just a short walk down the street.

This cabin is just great. Clean amenities, secluded, quiet, a nicely stocked kitchen which makes cooking and food preparation a pleasure. The cabin comes with WIFI and TV (if you want), but we recommend you unplug both and take advantage of reconnecting with family, enjoying the natural surroundings, and enjoying the blessing of being away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

There is plenty to keep young ones entertained as well - Northern Indiana has many treasures to discover that are short drives from the cabin. Train museums, Old mills, Parks, old lighthouses, fun restaurants, and eclectic ice cream shops (just to list a few our 6 and 3 year old's enjoyed).

After unwinding for a week vacation at this cabin, we think you will leave with a smile, tell all your friends about the wonderful time you had, and look forward anxiously to your next opportunity.

Great for budgets

  • 2 of 5
Very clean and great for people on budgets. It would be nice to have TV instructions and shower instructions. Washer and dryer are in basement with bugs and spiders. In summer months the loft is too hot to use and unless you are short you can't stand up in the loft. No window coverings except in bedroom. Beach is not close. Once you get to the parking space it is a 5 minute walk to the beach and about 50 stairs. Not fun if you are packing coolers and chairs. Go to Dunes State Park Beach very nice and we'll manicured. On the plus side the stable staff were very nice. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and pots. Also had things like salt and pepper and sugar already there. Putt putt at Flips was fun. For great food go up the road towards Michigan City and eat at Memos or order pizza from Little Giants.

Owner's Response: Apparently these guests did not read the detailed information sheet that tells them that they can drive for 1.5 minutes and park in our private spot and walk around the corner to the beach stairs: VERY convenient with chairs and snacks, etc.
The info sheet, of which there are 2 copies in the cabin, explains how to pull the tub spigot down to turn it into a shower. Same re the TV, which works fine, with a remote.
They called me 4 times during their stay and I addressed these issues, and told them they might want to read over the information sheet.
The loft is a loft, most often used by children, although an adult can easily sleep there, and is often used by renters. I have never had this mentioned before as an issue. The home has new central air and an additional fan just in case they need it.
Hmm, the basement is a basement, and it may have an occasional spider or ant. We are after all in the country !
By the way, I would never recommend either Memos or Little Giants ( pizza ). Very mediocre food. There are many great Chicago quality restaurants, including one of the best pizza restaurants, a 5 minute walk down the road from the cabin, called Stop 50. Again, all listed on the info sheet...
Re the beach, it is called the Dunes for a reason, and it is gorgeous. For those who have trouble walking there is a landing half way down. I counted the stairs once. There are 30..
We try hard to keep our guests happy, but sometimes it isn't possible..

A Great Place to Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful stay! The cabin was quiet and peaceful. We even woke up one morning to find a deer right outside the window. Everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was right there. Our favorite part of the stay here was spending time on the beach with our dogs. Even in early April, Lake Michigan was beautiful and our dogs absolutely loved the beach! We would definitely to stay again.
