REUNION, GROUP AND FAMILY HOME (SLEEPS 14) HOT TUB, FIREPIT & LARGE YARD

Beverly Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Full Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Close to the beach, casino, dunes and an easy drive to Notre Dame! Ask about last-minute deals!

Jan-Feb: $1,200 Wknd/$1,825 Wk

Mar-April: $1,650 Wknd/$2,400 Wk

May: $1,950 Wknd/$3,200 Wk

June-August: $2,300 Wknd/$3,500 Wk

Sep-Oct: $1,950 Wknd/$3,200 Wk

Nov-Dec: $1,400* Wknd/$2,150* Wk (*Holidays Extra, please inquire)

Deposits typically 1/4 to 1/3 of rental rate. Credit cards accepted.

All the benefits of the Dunes and then some. The owner uses this house as a place for get togethers and family gatherings. With five bedrooms (two of the bedrooms have two sets of bunkbeds each, so there are 8 bunks, two queen beds and a king bed) and four full bathrooms, as many as 14 can have a great time over the week or weekend, and all sleep onsite. Sorry, we are no longer allowing weddings, bachelor parties, high school or college groups, and any groups over 14.

Features: Signature deck with outdoor gas grill, 9-person hot tub, outdoor shower and a finished lower level with a living area, tv, two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a bar and laundry. Upstairs features a full bathroom with dual shower heads and three bedrooms, kitchen, four-season room with gas fireplace and living room.

Spring and fall are my favorite times, but even winter is cozy in this getaway! Less than an hour to Notre Dame and less than a mile to the beach.

What makes this different from most homes in Beverly Shores is the location and lot size. We are close enough to the lake to make it an easy walk, bike or drive, but unlike homes close to the lake, this lot is two acres, which gives you a feeling of privacy while still being able to spread out.

The driveway is large and circular, so can accommodate several cars.

If you like to eat and don't want to grill all the time on site, the best restaurant in the Dunes, Bartlett's, is open just two doors down. It is a focal point of post-beach activity or a great place for Bloody Mary's anytime of day! Next door is Dunes Antiques. These are our neighbors and they are great! Go shop and meet them! (They also sleep with their windows open, so music or loud noise is not tolerated by us or by them. Police will be called if noise is excessive and you will lose your deposit, so this is a matter we take very seriously).

The goal is for you and your friends, family or significant other to have a fantastic time in a safe, calm environment. The stream, waterfall and shade garden help with the tranquil mood. If you want more information, just email me!

Close to: Blue Chip Casino & Hotel, Four Winds Casino & Resort, Lighthouse Place Outlet Mall, Mount Baldy, Indiana National Dunes Beaches, Trails and Bike Trails

I am a business owner from Indiana. I completed nearly all the landscaping, pond and waterfalls. Creating a sense of retreat has been the goal here as my normal life is hectic with travel and deadlines.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

This is a great area: beaches, dunes, forest, hiking, not to mention great shopping and playing in Michigan City at the outlet mall and the Blue Chip casino. The best part for me was the ability of my dog to run around two acres and chase deer, squirrels, etc. The casual atmosphere here is great!

Everyone here is just here to relax or have fun -- or both! You can grab ice cream or coffee at the gas station (walkable), a full meal or drink at Bartlett's (walkable), mail a letter(!) at the town post office at the entrance to the property, and you can really utilize the property however you want to have a good time -- indoors or out. It's even beautiful in the winter b/c there is almost always a nice snow cover!

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We have used this location for our closing retreat for the past two years. The property is every bit as wonderful as the pictures indicate - a huge, wraparound wooden deck, enormous hot tub, beautiful water feature out front, and comfortable bedrooms and sitting rooms inside. Everything is wonderfully maintained, and Rob does an outstanding job of communicating and responding to any questions.

The location is great, too - within walking distance to Bartlett's Bar and Grill, the Beverly Shores South Shore Line stop, the Calumet trail, St. Ann of the Dunes Church, and the beach. There's even a gas station just a few doors down that sells delicious soft-serve ice cream!

Do be aware that the work space in the kitchen is small, so it can be somewhat challenging to prepare meals with several people, but the other qualities of the house and property far outweigh that minor issue. Rent this house with confidence!

GREAT MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Rob's home over Memorial Day Weekend with a group of 14 college friends. The home could not look better and functions very well for a large group. The recent renovations were done very well and I imagine it fixed some of the previous problems of noise complaints by neighbors. The grill, hot tub, and fire pit are now opposite the side of the only nearby neighbors. This allows groups gather late at night without fear of being too loud. At least within a reasonable amount. Rob takes pride in his home and put many rules into his contract that I had never seen in a rental, but it was worth the extra effort. It is a great property and anybody staying in the area with a large group should consider staying there.

LARGE FAMILY GROUP

  • 5 of 5
We used the beautiful Dunes House as our base for our son's wedding for a long weekend. We had plenty of room to spread out & get ready for the many events. Our adult kids enjoyed the hot tub & we all loved the great deck, the garden & fire pit. The bathrooms were so lovely with plenty of towels,etc. The kitchen is small, but manageable. All was so clean. Rob was very easy to work with. Would love to return as the area is so lovely. Thanks!!!

GREAT HOME, LOTS OF SPACE

  • 5 of 5
This home was fantastic...the furniture, appliances, and decor was high quality. The home was very clean with a neat hot tub and fire pit (if you can brave the mosquitoes...they were out in full force). I spoke with owner before our arrival due to an email that was sent regarding noise levels. I believe in the recent past there had been an issue with very loud parties and neighbors. I had a party of 14 most of which were outside till 2am-ish...practiced common courtesy and had no issues.

Our security deposit was appropriately refunded (we left a couple stains on the carpet that needed to steam cleaned) and within the time frame in contract terms.

There was PLENTY of parking space in the driveway, the home A/C kept the house cool. The only fault I could think of would be the fact that one of the sink drains in the downstairs bathroom didn't work (we were notified upon arrival with in the welcome letter). The drain in the other bathroom shower (the one with 5 shower heads) didn't drain well either.

All in all, it was a great stay. Great TV systems (upstairs and downstairs) for watching sports games too. Go Blackhawks!

GORGEOUS HOME ON AMAZING PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Myself and a group of girl friends rented this house for a weekend getaway, and we could not have been more pleased. The house itself is beautiful and the yard is even more breathtaking. The landscaping - from the waterfall in the front yard to the lush greenery in back - make this house feel serene and secluded. We definitely did not feel like were were only an hour from Chicago.

There was a group of 11 of us, and we had more than enough space for sleeping, eating and hanging out. There are three more "private" bedrooms with a queen or king bed (one upstairs and two in the basement) and there are two rooms with two sets of bunk beds (both upstairs). The kitchen is small but sufficient. All of the bathrooms are remodeled and feel luxurious.

The outside is 100% what makes this house amazing. The deck is huge, the bonfire pit is perfect, and the hot tub is a lot of fun. During the day or at night, the yard is spectacular! Also, there is a giant grill perfect for cooking for large groups.

We went to the beach (about a mile drive), the outlet malls, (about 10 minutes away), Four Winds Casino and Redimaks (about 30 minutes away). There is plenty to do in the area to keep anyone entertained, but honestly I could have stayed at the house the entire time and been just as content.

Rob was great to work with. His responses were always prompt and helpful. The property was meticulously maintained. We definitely plan to rent this home again!
