In two minutes you can walk to the beach, and at night it's so quiet. Listen for the deer--they make horse-like sounds and in the fall the leaves rustle as they move through the foliage. There are more stars in the sky than you see in Chicago.
The Dunes Mart has some of the best soft serve you will ever taste. On a clear day, you can see the Chicago skyline across the lake--and if you feel like visiting the city, the South Shore will get you there in just over an hour. The train station and the Dunes Mart are located on the corner of Route 12 and Broadway, the main entrance to Beverly Shores. The town has one stoplight and that is where you'll find it.
It's a very small town and sometimes strangers wave hello as they drive by.
Fall colors can be breathtaking---you are surrounded, even inside the house. After the leaves are gone, there is a bittersweet beauty to the stark silhouettes of hundreds of trees surrounding the house. As the house is up on a dune, you see the bare treetops and below the bright blanket of fallen leaves.
