WINTER SPECIAL - CHARMING 3-BEDROOM COTTAGE WITH FIRE PLACE

Miller Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Newly available summer special. New hardwood floors and carpeting.

Steps away from the waterfront, this 3-bedroom cottage has everything you need for the perfect getaway.

The cottage features three bedrooms. Two bedrooms have a queen bed, and the third bedroom has a trundle bed. The cottage can comfortably sleeps 8 comfortably (6 adults plus 2 children). The cottage also has a full, ready-to-use kitchen; you only need to bring the food and drink. This property also features a wood fireplace for those cold winter months.

Come and enjoy access to one of the most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan. Indiana Dunes State and National Park are also nearby, as well as numerous restaurants and shopping.

If you are coming from Chicago and looking for a beach getaway, you simply cannot beat Miller Beach. The trip to Miller Beach from Chicago takes less than an hour in good traffic. Miller Beach is the closet beach community to Chicago, and it is also one of the most pleasant.

Just spending time on the beach would be enough to justify a trip to Miller Beach. But there is also so much more to do in the immediate area. To begin with, there is Indiana Dunes State Park. Just a few minutes from Miller Beach, this State Park features the best trails in Northern Indiana and dunes unlike anywhere else in the Midwest. Exploring and climbing dunes is enjoyable for all ages; you feel like you are in a completely different, more exotic part of the country.

This cottage would also make the perfect headquarters for a fishing expedition. Fifteen minutes from the cottage is one of biggest Bass Pro Shops I have ever seen. Also, the area is full of rivers, small lakes, and, of course, Lake Michigan.

I absolutely love Miller Beach and I feel like I have a very special, warm place from which to enjoy it.

Unfortunately, I can only spend so much time at Miller Beach. So I might as well allow others to share my great experience.

The fenced in yard is ideal for children (and with approval) small dogs. it features a BBQ, hammock, out door furniture, patio with table and beautiful garden.

Mixed feelings on Miller's Beach

Mixed feelings on Miller's Beach

We stayed here for 8 days and enjoyed super sunsets, walks on the beach and waking to birdsong in the mornings. However, my first impression of the property once we entered was disappointing. I had booked the place after reading glowing reviews about its cleanliness but sadly the kitchen and the sitting areas were anything but. I would like to point out that the dining area and the sitting room do not match the pictures posted here. The carpets in the dining area were unclean. Although I agree that this is a beach house and a few scuff marks here and there can be attributed to the 'cosy charm' of the property, but I felt let down as I chose the property based on past reviews.
The owner was extremely helpful and kind as he arranged two air-conditioners for us within a day and that we truly appreciate this gesture.
We were able to travel to Chicago in the mornings- do the touristy stuff- and be back by 6 pm to soak our tired feet in the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan. Other areas we explored nearby were the Indiana Dunes State Park and Merrillville (for food shopping at Meijer). Visiting Chesterton on a Saturday morning to be part of their farmers market was a fantastic experience. We picked most of our food from Meijer and the farmers market and enjoyed fresh food at home.
I would be apprehensive to recommend this property to my friends in its current state, which is a shame as the property has great potential if its spruced up.
Owner's Response: We apologize for the condition left by the previous tenants. We made the mistake of renting to a group just out of their teens. This mistake on our part will not happen again. In the process of determining how to proceed, we overlooked replacing the photos to reflect the damage that had been done. The photos have now been updated showing the extend of work recently performed. New hard wood floors in dining and living room area, replaced carpeting in all three bedrooms and installed new central heat and air-conditioning. Meeting the expectations of our vacationers is our top priority.

Great Birthday Surprise Weekend

The decor isn't the most glamorous but its a beachy house! Great yard and great house overall. Had everything we needed! Friendly locals, great bar/grill up the street at Flamingo, and fantastic beaches! Miller Beach/Marquette Park is a hidden gem! Not to mention only a 40 minute drive from Chicago(in traffic)! My guests and I had a blast and enjoyed celebrating a birthday there as well! We will definitely be back!

A really great property in a perfect location. The house is cozy and warm with an nice summertime cottage feel. The property was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Very short walk to the beach. My friends and I had a ball, I definitely plan on making a trip back out here next summer.

Lake Michigan is a great place to spend your time with family and friends. Place is quiet and refreshing, great relax from big city. We with my husband and our friends stayed in this charming cottage for three nights. We love it! Especially we liked the living room - so cute and also stylish. We are considering spending some more days there in September.

The cottage was clean and well kept. We really enjoyed the large kitchen and use of the utensils. The rear deck made a fabulous grilling experience. There were beach chairs available for our time on the beach. We spent the mornings on the deck watching the birds in the yard. Miller Beach is a nice vacation destination.
