We could not have had a better vacation. The house is absolutely beautiful, comfortable, and in a safe, quiet area. We walked or rode bikes to the beach, which was spectacular- Lake Michigan is so vast, you feel like you are on an ocean. The master bedroom and bath was built for a king, and the other bedrooms were spacious and charming. The extra perks included full baths on every floor, use of the garage and beach equipment, a huge laundry room, and a gorgeous deck in the front and a fun backyard patio for grilling. The owners are easy to reach and left helpful guide books and directions. Thanks George and Kathy for a wonderful vacation and many memories
Great vacation house. Anyone renting this house will not be disappointed. George and Kathy were very nice and very helpful. We had 6 adults and 3 kids, and we had plenty of room. The house was clean and well maintained and stocked with everything we needed for a nice relaxing vacation. Whether you are looking to relax on the beach, gamble at a casino, or jump on a train to Chicago this is the perfect house for you!
Every year, seven of us enjoy a girls only trip over Memorial Day weekend. This was our first ever trip to Michigan City & we loved it. We found George & Kathy's house to be spotless & beautiful. Each of us raved over how nice it was & we wished we could stay longer. George was wonderful to work with. He was in contact with me quite often prior to our arrival & was able to answer a question for me once we arrived. The weather was extremely cool & it rained quite a bit while we were there, but the house was great so we didn't feel confined when we chose to stay in. Thanks again, George!
We rented this property last week and it was spectacular in every way. It surpassed its description! It was spacious, gorgeously appointed, and located very near the attractions that we wanted to visit. The beach was beautiful and we were lucky to have fabulous weather.
The main living area had a sectional couch that was comfortable (with 3 reclining sections) and could amply accomodate dozens of people! Well, maybe not quite that many. :) The kitchen was "granite and stainless steel beautiful" and a pleasure to be in. I am not much of a cook, but found myself inspired by these surroundings.
With 3 levels, each having a full bath, TV, and sleeping accomodations, we grandparents were able to take the upper level suite with the glamour bath and loft area. What a great getaway spot.
Our daughter and her family occupied the main level bedrooms, which saved them a lot of steps while looking after their children.
All in all, we loved our stay and are already talking about NEXT YEAR!
I would recommend this property to anyone as long as they are able to climb stairs.
We had been to the Michigan City area before and loved being so close to the Zoo, Art Museum, blueberry farms, and the Hesston Train Museum.
Also, the house was spotless.
Thank you, George!
This house is a "Must See"! Pictures do not do justice to what you see "in person". Our family rented George and Kathy's house for a week in August and we had the time of our lives. The beach, which is in the neighborhood, was very nice and clean. We looked forward to going to the beach everyday. The outlet mall is one of the best that we have ever been to. We drove to Chicago, which was about a one hour drive away. Wish we had more time to spend in Chicago, but we wanted to get back to the house and go to the beach.
We found the house fully equipped with everything that you would need. The house is very well kept up and very comfortable beds and furniture. We definitely want to come back another summer for a family vacation.

We have been getting together for over 25 years now, and this was by far our best year yet. This home is spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and a perfect get away. The location was close to shopping at the outlets, and the casino at both New Buffalo, and Michigan City. Lake Michigan is only a short walk, and the private beach is a must. George and Kathleen were easy to work with, and extremely accomodating. Thank you for making this a weekend that we look forward to repeating again next year. We had a blast! Thanks, Wendy
