The Beach House at Lakeside, Michigan has been a popular vacation Rental for hundreds of Families for over 30 years. Just a 90 minute drive from Chicago and you and your family or friends will have arrived to a place not just on the other side of the Great Lake but a world away from what you encounter every day. In Lakeside Michigan, you are in a small town that is part of family of beach town communities known as Harbor Country. New Buffalo, Union Pier and Grand Beach are among the neighboring towns.

While frequented for decades by Chicagoans who both vacation here and own second homes, thousands from all over the Midwest and other parts of the country make this area part of their summer every year. Yet when you are in Lakeside, you would never know that others travel many miles to come here too. Now, you too can partake in the laid back beach town experience when you stay a summer week at the Beach House at Lakeside, Michigan.

At the beach House, you have a choice of renting one or two fully furnished units. Each unit will comfortably accommodate up to 10 people and has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, fully equipped kitchen, dining room and Sunroom. We only rent to one renter at a time.

After you have arrived and settled in, you will no doubt take the short 200 yard walk to the private beach to witness to one of the most impressive sunsets found anywhere on the planet. It is the main attraction of this vacation destination. And on a day when you need a break from the sun and the waves, you can still enjoy a refreshing swim in a heated pool or pedal a bike along the miles of trails that meander through the neighboring towns, forests, farmlands and wine country.

With outdoor patios in the front garden, and back yard, you also have ample seating around the pool for sunbathing or having lunch. At meal time, you have many options to explore. In addition to grilling on the Weber, you will discover the areas many first rate restaurants, a famous burger joint, ice cream shops and cafes.

When you seek some variety, there are the many antique shops along Red Arrow Highway, Golf courses, Fruit picking, art galleries, shopping, the Warren Dunes State park and even a first class Casino in nearby New Buffalo.

When the summer season winds down, the fun continues. With the Fall Season, the area becomes flush with color and beauty. After the pool gets closed for another year, we open our outdoor hot tub for our fall and Winter Guests. Some of you might come for a girls Only weekend or cheer on the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame in nearby South Bend.

Regardless of whether you come for a summer week, or a Spring, Fall or Winter Weekend, you will leave having just experienced some unforgettable memories along the shores of Lake Michigan when you’ve stayed at the Beach House at Lakeside.

Frank and his wife Mary Ann live with their two children Amanda and Brett in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Frank is an architect and runs a residential remodeling business. After selling a 2 flat that the couple owned in Chicago, they decided to reinvest in a property they could rent and also enjoy themselves. The property has undergone many changes through the different owners with numerous additions and remodels. After the first summer of ownership in 2001 the couple decided to make better use of the yard space surrounding the cottages. Where previously you could drive almost right up to the front door, it was felt that the cars should be closer to Schaffner St. This allowed the the remaining yard space to be laid out better for the pool, decks, spa, brick patios and landscaping improvements.

More changes are in the works and are usually done in the off season. Our goal has been to provide a clean, comfortable and properly maintained home and outdoor spaces with modern necessities like flat screen TV's, internet access, heated pool and A/C while not over improving the house to the point it looses it's by-gone era nostalgic charm. We focus on some not so obvious things like quality beds and linens, outdoor showers, preventative treatments for insects, easy maintenance of Weber grills, maintaining good relationships and membership with the Harbor Country Chamber of Commerce and our own Orchard Beach Homeowners Association. We have used the same cleaning service for the past several years due to their attentive, timely and excellent service. Almost 1/3rd of our summer rentals are repeat guests, We have one family that has stayed with us for 6 consecutive years.

Frank K purchased this cottage in 2001

The beach. It is all about the beach. The texture of the sand. The clear lake Michigan water. The sounds of the waves. and the most incredible sunsets. I have been to allot of beaches in allot of places from Florida to California and I can tell you all things considered, ours is the best. The water is clean, no salt, no rocks, no dead sea life. Just great sand, sun and water warm enough for a refreshing swim. It is amazing how much pleasure you can experience from something so simple. The laid back atmosphere and the fact that the house is such a short walk to the beach (200 yards, yes I walked it off) only made it more appealing. A business client had talked about how much she enjoyed her summer getaways to New Buffalo and how nice it was to have a place in such a peaceful setting yet within a reasonable drive. We had no idea that we would become one of her neighbors. We did not find this out until a few years later.

Exploring new restaurants and visiting the ones we like (Skip's, Capozios, Red Arrow Roadhouse, Timothy's, Oinks). Antiquing (rarely buy anything). Kids love the pool, everyone loves the beach, and when it gets too cold for the beach or pool, we have the outdoor hot tub. Gas can be up to 35 cents cheaper than Chicago at certain stations in Indiana off I-94. When we need to do any major shopping, Michigan City, Indiana and Benton Harbor, Mi. have huge shopping centers and are each within 20 minutes. Go to Michigan City if you are running late due to the time change.

Close to beach but cottage needs updating.

  • 1 of 5
Inside needs updating. Most rooms have peeling paint. There were ants in the kitchen. The shower curtain in the bathroom on the 2nd floor was moldy. The listing states that there is "Air Conditioning". But there is just one window unit air conditioner for the entire first floor which includes 7 rooms including 3 bedrooms. There's another window unit air conditioner in the 2nd floor bedroom.

All things considered, the house is a short walk to a private beach and the pool is great.
