|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Climb the stone stairs of Zenadu, and escape to an oasis that feels worlds away, yet convenient to everything. Discover a koi pond with water lilies, lush gardens and the music of waterfalls. Atop a secluded wooded acre, Zenadu is surrounded by decks with all-day sun and shade. With 2 huge bedrooms, a sleeping loft, vaulted cedar ceilings, 6 skylights, a natural stone fireplace, 3.5 baths, a double, air-jet massage tub, and a double shower with 7 jets, Zenadu sleeps 8 in style. And the beach is a 15 min. walk. As you enter, jade slate tiles give way to gleaming Brazilian walnut floors. High walls of windows bring the beauty of its surroundings inside. Modern kitchen with cultured granite countertops and stainless appliances opens onto a large eat-in screened porch with a stainless Weber gas grill. Dramatic master bedroom suite has a king bed and a private wrap-around balcony. Extra large first floor bedroom suite has a queen and 2 twin beds (a king combined), private bath and entrance.
This is our favorite home away from home! The peacefulness and tranquility of Zenadu's surroundings provide rest and relaxation. We especially enjoy the screened in porch for morning coffee and late night chats. The scenic walk to the beach was well worth it! Thanks for another amazing Sister Weekend!!
The house and grounds are even better than the pictures. We had a lovely week and look forward to staying again.
If you are looking for a peaceful retreat, Zenadu offers the complete package. The moment you walk onto the grounds, you are taken into a world of serene calmness by the waterfalls, koi pond and the natural landscaping. You instantly feel separated from the fast pace of the everyday world. The cobblestone fireplace and natural wood set the tone for the home. You just get that warm, comfy feeling. You won’t need to bring anything. It has it all. From aprons to beach chairs – they’ve thought of it all. I’m usually a bit apprehensive about cleanliness, but this house was immaculate! You can walk to the beach or stay in and roast smores over the fire pit. Elena handled the rental transaction and it was a pleasure working with her.
I was looking for a relaxing, family getaway and Zenadu exceeded all of my expectations! Zenadu will be our new family retreat!
Our family of six couldn't have been happier with Zenadu for our annual Fall weekend trip. Every detail of the home is spotless, beautiful, and relaxing. The finishes are all lovely! The outdoor shower is perfect for little ones coming home from the nearby beach and the many outdoor spaces allowed us all to enjoy the peace and fall colors surrounding the property. Our highlights included smores by the firepit, relaxing in the hammock, nearby horseback riding, visits to the beach, and enjoying the fall colors! If you actually want to leave, this location is wonderful for pumpkin patch visits, apple picking and more. What a treat of a home in an excellent location. Thanks for sharing this truly remarkable home.
My husband and I were planning on shopping and exploring the Harbor Country for the Labor Day week-end. But we ended up loving the house so much we stayed in all day on Sunday. The home is so beautiful and relaxing, we did not want to leave. The decks are great for reading or just soaking up the sun. And the inside of the home is just as comfy, everything you need is there! Elena was very nice and helpful. We are already planning another trip soon. "Zenadu" is truly a perfect balance of Zen and Xanadu!
We have been fortunate to stay in many lovely homes over the years, and this is certainly one of the nicest. As other reviewers have observed the pictures do not do justice to the gorgeous building materials, excellent craftsmanship and beautiful design of the house. The sylvan setting is equally compelling, and we spent hours on the screened porch, reading with the sounds of the nearby waterfall in the background, lingering over coffee or enjoying a meal. We love to cook and we appreciated the well-equipped kitchen with decent knives, and a rolling pin, which came in handy for making a pie to contain the bounty of blueberries we picked at a nearby farm. We appreciated the restaurant recommendations in the binder full of helpful information, and would also recommend a great little Middle Eastern restaurant in nearby Michigan City called Sahara. We spent a nice afternoon hiking at Dunes National Park, and enjoyed the beach. It was wonderful to walk or jog along Lake Shore Drive in the morning. We were with our three college-aged children and it was a perfect spot for all of us - beautiful communal gathering spaces and plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed every aspect of the experience, from our first contact to make rental arrangements to the follow up after we left. We appreciate the owners' willingness to make their beautiful home available to others. We hope we will have an opportunity to return to this special place.
