Michigan City House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 14-25)

It includes a huge deck with a fantastic view of Lake Michigan that can seat up to 30 people.

The inside of the house is newly remodeled with wonderful woodwork throughout the house. Each room has its own personal touch that was designed to create an inviting fun-filled home atmosphere. The house is nicely furnished and fully equipped with amenities such as plasma TVs, a pool table, two washers/dryers, a grill, a stylish bar with kegerator, etc.

It offers a relaxing beach vacation with plenty of other attractions for a rainy day. The nearby Washington Park area includes a Marina, a beautiful grassy park adjacent to the beach, outdoor music theater, picnics, and Washington Park Zoo which overlooks Lake Michigan. Shopping lovers will not be disappointed by the famous Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets (250 stores) while those who don’t like to shop can have fun at Blue Chip Casino. The city attractions also include The Old Lighthouse Museum, Children's Museum, New Buffalo Railroad Museum, Southern Shore Art Association Gallery, and The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and State Park which is right outside of Michigan City. Do not miss out on the popular outdoors adventures like swimming, boating, waterskiing, tubing, walking, biking, horseback riding, blueberry/peach/apple/pumpkin picking, and cross country skiing and sledding when it gets cold.

HORRIBLE FAMILY VACATION

  • 1 of 5
We planned an entire family vacation to celebrate Mom's 80th birthday and thought we had found a perfect place on line. The photos on line do not represent the property at all. The entire house was filthy and after traveling from several states , we had no choice but to stay. Our first day was spent cleaning from top to bottom. Things basically went from bad to worse. All of the beds were beyond horrible and we even found an old plate of food in the microwave. There really was no excusing anything we found. Thankfully we completely enjoyed the beach, and Michigan City itself was a great find location wise, just definitely not this property!

Owner's Response: Dear Kelly,

Thank you for taking time to write about your experience, it helps us to determine the areas for the improvement. We are replacing all of the bedding for this season and working on hiring a new cleaning service.

Please accept my apology for any inconvenience at my property. To repay for the cleaning time, I offer you one free day on your next stay at my house. I just wished you didn’t wait 4 months to write this review, I would had made some changes last season.

Sincerely,

Henry B.

ONE WEEKEND IN SEPTEMBER

  • 5 of 5
I still can’t forget the weekend in the middle of September. I was reluctant to go to a beach house in Michigan City, Indiana, especially in September. My brother invited my daughter and I to spend a weekend with his family. I packed my bags, expecting to turn back the moment I got there. What would I do there in the middle of September?
Surprisingly, I had a great time there. Not only did I enjoy the beauty of the beach and the serenity of the environment in Fall, but also the well – maintenance and coziness of the house. You can feel that the house is under constant good care. It is something about the soul of the house that made me think that must be the blend between the house and the serene environment.
The weather was perfect, it was the beginning of an Indian summer. The leaves were just starting to turn red and yellow and the water was so calming. The children were busy too, playing with the sand and collecting rocks, choosing the best-colored tree by the beach houses and playing soccer. As for me, I really enjoyed the lengthy walk along the shore thinking about my life and catching the different sounds of water waves . In the end, we had a great family dinner on the deck of the house where I could see the blue water conjured with a horizon. I will come again to this place in any season to find the serenity.

PEACEFUL WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We took an advantage of lower off-season rates and possibility to rent a house for two nights and spent a great weekend in the house. There is something very peaceful about the lake at this time of a year and everyone enjoyed the stay. Besides walking on the beach, the girls were happy with good deals at Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets and everyone liked bowling at Lake Shore Lane.

Henry was very helpful in getting us in at the last minute. I would recommend the house to anyone, especially if you are looking for a place that can accommodate a big group of people.

FILTHY AND OUTDATED- BRING YOUR OWN SHEETS AND CLEANING SUPPLIES

  • 1 of 5
My friends and I just stayed here for a weekend. We paid several thousand dollars and it was filthy. Floors were dirty, sheets were old and looked unwashed. Lightbulbs were out. No instructions were left in regards to maintenance- clearly there is no maintenance. I would not recommend this house. We feel like it was a bait and switch.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, I appreciate any feed back from my guests. This is the best way to learn what is done right and what needs to be changed. At first, I would like to apologize for the inconvenience, but I am surprised that no one contacted me at the arrival. There is no maintenance instruction in the house since I live an hour away and I am available on my quests’ request. I feel positive that any issue could have been resolved to your satisfaction. In the future, I’ll make sure to leave a contact phone in the house. Please feel free to contact me at any time Sincerely, Henry Bindas

GREAT VACATION - WE ARE COMING BACK!

  • 5 of 5
When my friends invited us to spend a week at the beach house in Michigan City we were skeptical - beach vacation an hour drive from Chicago? It did not sound right. For a change, it was a nice surprise. The house itself is newly remodeled, nicely furnished and very spacious with for a big group of people. Our group included 16 adults and 9 kids from age 4 to age 21 and all of us had fun. We spent mornings and afternoons at the beach with a lot of swimming, tanning, jet skiing, volleyball, sand castles and all kind of games. The house with air conditioners provided a perfect shelter for too sunny noon for those who don’t like sun very much (personally, I never understood them.?) Those who love outdoors went blueberry and peach picking and let me tell you – I never tasted better peaches or blueberries in my life. One disappointment with peach picking, I learned that I can’t eat more then 4 fruits. Even cooking was fun, every family took a turn to cook dinners and everyone enjoyed home made meals at the huge deck with a lake view. Can you imagine any better setting for a summer dinner? The evenings were spent at the lower level of the house with more games, pool and of course a lot of fun stories. And finally, for those who were not tired after all of this fun – Blue Chip Casino was perfect solution with just a 5 min drive.

We loved the vacation so much that we are coming back on August 12, 2011!

A PERFECT GET-A-WAY FROM THE BUSY CITY

  • 5 of 5
Michigan City is a wonderful place to visit! House was the perfect fit for our party of 6 families! The bedrooms were cozy and the kitchen with living space were great. Back view to the Lake Michigan is charming, and one of our favorite places to hang out in the evening was the back porch with refreshing breezes. The dune beach and Lake Michigan water were amazing! If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing family vacation, this is the perfect place. Henry was great in accomodating us and answering our many questions. We hope to come back......soon!
