We bought this beautiful house in 2006 to have fun in Harbor Country year round with our family and friends. This house has been filled with laughter, love and friendship since the day we bought it. We hope that you will create many wonderful memories at Two Porches too.

Located less than 1 1/2 hours for Chicago, Two Porches is so close, yet a world apart in Lakeside, Michigan. Escape to Harbor Country for everything anyone can want. From our beautiful beaches, to our wonderful dining, award wining wineries and much more!
Close to everything!! Year round fun!! Beautiful setting just waiting for wonderful people to enjoy it!
I just got home from an amazing weekend!
The home is everything I thought it was and everyone had a wonderful time! We celebrated my girlfriend's birthday on Saturday, and she is dead set on renting the house next year for celebrating again!
Thank you so much from me and everyone. Memories were made that people only dream of and we are grateful to have done it at the 2 Porches home.
This house is amazing! Ten people from three generations and we were all very comfortable sleeping, preparing and eating meals, reading on the front porch, watching TV, playing cards and getting ready to walk down to the beach! The house is big enough so that you can be where the action is or spend a little alone time too. Everyone really loved the master bath shower! And having several people in our family with pet allergies, we really appreciate that pets and smoking are not allowed!
We ate at the usual places; Nani's Cafe (several times for breakfast and lunch), Blue Plate Cafe, Greenbush Brewery, Roadhouse, Stray Dog, Casey's, but the best cheeseburger was at the train museum in Hesseton, IN. Did a spa day w/the girls too! One rainy day we took the kids to the movies in Michigan City, IN which we realized is in a different time zone as we were the only one in the theater for almost an hour!
We'll be back in 2014!
This house is wonderful and the location can't be beat! We had a fun getaway weekend with a group of friends. The house had plenty of room for our group. The kitchen is great for many cooks to work together. The beautiful beach is close by and so are many great restaurants!
We were a party of 3 adult couples, some over 65, some in their twenties. The Lakeside house had something for everyone. Excellent value for the rental price. A perfect short walk to the beach with easy beach access, a quiet, lovely neighborhood to stroll through, and a front and back porch to mingle or get away from it all! Details to cleanliness, furnishings and comfort were first class. Beds were heavenly and the loft for additional sleeping was a bonus.
The kitchen was a dream to work in and to look at. The appliances were superior and all in excellent working order. Instructions for all were easily accessible including the central air. While we did not use the beach chairs, toys, they were plentiful and in excellent condition.
Nearby winery, brewery and towns were an added bonus. However, I could happily have stayed at the house for our time there and never ventured out! It was a very relaxing time. For all the sports fans, there was full cable TV along with music channels for dinner atmosphere! This place lacked nothing! We plan to return with a group or just as a couple. I am sure the winter will be as lovely as the fall. Thanks you for sharing your home and for your attention to details!
This is my second stay at Two Porches and I can't wait to come back! The weather was perfect for walks on the beach or down the street to admire the colors. This was the perfect house for our group of nine. It's big enough to spread out but small enough to be together while cooking, playing board games and watching TV. We had everything we needed to eat in although I'd like to try some of the quaint restaurants nearby on my next visit.
Thanks for sharing your lovely home!
We had a terrific time meeting up with our friends in this beautiful home. The kids loved sleeping and playing in the loft. The house was spacious and well maintained. We used both porches. Plenty of showers. Since the public beach access was 1/2 mile, we sometimes drove and other times walked. Kitchen could use a couple more pots with lids. The owner, LeeAnne was great to work with. We would recommend this to anyone. We will definitely be coming back!
A lovely vacation home which was perfect for our family of nine. One caution: Be aware of possible undisclosed additional cleaning fees.There are no clearly outlined expectations for what the owner wants the renter to do upon departure. We have rented approximately 20 vacation homes and each had a helpful list of duties to complete, such as laundry, dishes, take out garbage, etc. and a clearly stated fee for not completing these duties. This wasn't the case for this property. I was very surprised to be notified by the owner that I would owe an additional cleaning fee which was not stated anywhere in the contract or in the home.
Activities for everyone in the wonderful Harbor Country location. Shopping, dining, antiquing, boating, fishing, hiking, wine touring, public beaches, casino! ONLY 30 minutes to South Bend. Perfect location for all your Notre Dame football weekend needs.
