About Jim Pappas
Completed in 2009, I built the Dream Retreat and attached Guest House with all the luxuries, premium fixtures, and custom amenities in mind to truly make it a spa-like experience for relaxing as well as functional and comfortable enough for entertaining large groups of family and friends.
I’ve been designing, building, and managing commercial real estate since 2001 and finally have built my dream home for my family to live in. My family and I always look forward to coming home to 'our private oasis on the beach” to escape from it all...
I truly hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. Please see www.MillerBeachDreamRetreat.com and call me at (773) 264-1000 to book your chosen dates before you lose them; we fill up very fast, take credit cards, and are first come, first served.
Hope to see you soon!
Jim Pappas & Family
Jim Pappas purchased this house in 2009
Why Jim Pappas chose Miller Beach
We chose Miller Beach, IN for several reasons. It is THE closest beach side community to Chicago (35 minutes by vehicle or South Shore Train, 60 minutes from O’hare Airport, 30 minutes from Midway Airport), is right on the Indiana Dunes National Park, and has the BEST “semi-private” sugar-sand beach around!
Our backyard and beach IS the IN Dunes National Park!
Unlike most beachfront rentals, they are crowded, noisy, and offer no privacy. There are usually neighbors right next to you on both sides which offer limited privacy and minimal relaxation. The Dream Retreat and attached Guest House are built on a quiet, cul-de-sac street, corner lot, the only house on the corner, and 350 feet from the closest neighbor! Your views to the North and East are only Lake Michigan, the Dunes, and the Chicago skyline. I also installed 6’ and 8’ privacy fences to further isolate the back yard and decks from the street.
Follow the private sand trail to the best “semi-private” beach. Since we are a full mile from the public beach, even in the heat of Peak Summer Season, there are rarely more than a handful of other families near us.
Our beach is pure sugar sand, has no rocks, no muck, no algae, nor erosion. There is a knee-high, sand bar out 150 feet. There are no under-tows or rip currents either. This is great for our little ones and we feel very safe letting them swim alone in the crystal-clear, warm waters. Also, because we are the Southern-most tip of Lake Michigan, the water gets the warmest fastest and stays the warmest the longest--even well into Autumn.
Dream Retreat has an outdoor shower & Professional sand volley ball court (Peak Seasons only), set to Woman’s Olympic specs, in the back yard right off the main deck and additional privacy fencing.
How much more “one with nature” can you get, have no neighbors, enjoy ultimate luxury and privacy, and still be only 35 minutes from Chicago, one of the largest and most culturally diverse cities in the world!
What makes this house unique
No other beachfront vacation rental offers this level of privacy, beauty, and luxury. Our guest list is confidential, but includes A-list celebrities on-site during filming of major movies, professional sports stars, and noted journalists.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Met with a bunch of girls who all Scrapbook. Thats what we did from Thursday until Sunday in Nov. 2011. Beautiful home, beautiful location, beautiful times!! Would I do again? In a heartbeat!! Oh and did I mention the hot tub. This would be a great place for a small family reunion or maybe a New Years Eve party. Very lovely--hoping to make plans to do it again.
