DUNESIDE

Beverly Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The house is built on the side of a 65 foot sand dune with a 5 minute walk to a beach on Lake Michigan. The property is wooded with old oaks and maple trees. The large room at the top is about 50 feet above the road below. It is not easily accessible for the elderly and handicapped. The large room contains the Kitchen, the large wood burning fireplace, seating at 3 tables for 20, sofas by the fireplace and an area for games, cards or puzzles.

The house was built in 1987 by 3 brothers to be a place for large family gatherings near Lake Michigan. We use the house year round and enjoy the beach, biking, hiking and being in forest and dunes. It is a place to get away from city life, TV, and the fast pace life.

Michigan City and Chesterton are nearby with shopping and restaurants.

Family Duneside Vacation

  • 4 of 5
My three kids and family spent the week. The home is exactly as stated. Lots of room, cooking area is well stocked, laundry. Eleven of us and a dog. 60 steps to the top deck. Lots of climbing but we enjoyed it. Quiet roads for kids to run/bike. Shoreline train was great for trips to Chicago and Michigan City. Quiet beach, suggest beach shoes due to small rocks to walk thru to get to the water. Storm blew up and electricity was off. Can't control mother nature or Nipsco. Owner was very accommodating to us with the situation. Mosquitos are very bad due to trees so be prepared. We saw a deer on the slope behind the top deck one evening. Wild turkey and fox also. Lots of steps on the inside to three different levels. No TV/WiFi as stated. This would be a nice addition for current lifestyles of families. Lots of different areas to visit in a short drive. Nice vacation spot for everyone except those that may have trouble climbing both to the home and back from the beach. On clear days can see Chicago skyline in the distance from the beach. Rocks to pick up just like sea shells. Kids really enjoyed the different looking rocks. We did not get a chance but was told that we could have had a camp fire on the beach. Large fireplace would be great in fall and winter. There is a lot of potential for the home. This is our 4th time with VRBO and have never been disappointed.

Duneside is perfect

  • 5 of 5
Duneside is a really comfortable place, within a short walk of the lake and beach. It is not for those who are challenged by stairs, because it's tucked up into the trees, high on the dunes. The main floor is made for gathering and hanging out - with a sofa seating area plus three sets of tables and chairs for meals and games. Three showers and two baths make it easy for everyone. We especially enjoyed the screened porch!

Great place for a family & friend weekend retreat!

Great place for a family & friend weekend retreat!
  • 5 of 5
This home exceeded our expectations by far! We were not sure of how many beds there were, so we brought a couple air mattresses just in case, but these were not needed. There were 8 of us, but we could have comfortably slept 12. The loft is large with two double beds and three twin size beds. Plus there are two bedrooms downstairs with queen beds and pull out couches in the living room.

Unfortunately the weather was not on our side as it rained non-stop for the entire weekend, which was suitable for Friday the 13th. We did however manage to sharpen our puzzling skills :) The grill was in the screened in area, so we were still able to cook out, which worked out well. Our dogs had a great time and learned within the first hour that the hill out back is pretty steep...

The home was well stocked with linens and towels, and had plenty of dishes/pots & pans. We kept the fireplace going almost the whole time and enjoyed it. There was even a little fireplace downstairs, but we did not use that one. We felt relaxed and comfortable. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely home. We loved the architecture and appreciated the setting. We are already planning on coming back later in the Summer or Fall. Cheers!

Beautiful house with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5
We were searching for a nice house for Easter gateway and a couple of things popped out. First, the house is set up high in the woods, within 5 minute walk to the beach and second, only an hour away! We were excited! The owners were nice enough to meet us there and show us around. The property does not look like a rental; it made us feel as if we were visiting our aunt for holidays. It has everything you might need, just like in your own home. Plenty of towels, blankets, fully equipped kitchen and even food/water bowl for my four - legged family member. It melted my heart… We had a great time enjoying the outdoors as well as the indoors during our three day stay. We wished we could have stayed longer and are planning on going back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review.
We have enjoyed renting our house this past year and we are happy to receive suggestions. Three of us brothers built the house 25 years ago and renting has motivated us to make some improvements that we are glad to make.
