SUMMER SPECIAL - CHARMING 3-BEDROOM COTTAGE WITH FIRE PLACE

Miller Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Newly available summer special. New hardwood floors and carpeting.

80 yards 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.

Nice cottage near the beach

  • 4 of 5
It was a good last minute find. Some minor issues, but I am sure the owner would have taken care of if we asked. If you want the Ritz, you will not be happy. If you want a nice cottage within 5 minutes of the beach and close to Chicago, this will be a good fit.

Owner's Response: No, it's not the Ritz, it's just a warm friendly cottage at a reasonable rate with new floors and HV/AC unit with close proximity to the beach!

700 steps to public beach and park w excellent walking paths

  • 4 of 5
There are 700 steps to access public beach & it is virtually deserted during the week. There's a beach restaurant with food and public bathrooms on Miller Beach and an awesome walking path! House has beautiful new flooring & excellent working air conditioning. For as old as house was everything works really well! Even great hot water which is unusual in older homes it seems. The backyard is dreamy with its seclusion and nature preserve like feel! One day there was even a deer in backyard! Some suggestions: remote that works w DVD player (it's manageable if just want to watch a DVD w 1 thing on it) & screens on some windows. I would have liked to turn off air and have fresh air breezes but could only find 1 window in living area w a screen. It does have that "old house" smell when walking in but I didn't notice it after initial entrance each time. Only one shower door works but that was ok-id probably remodel shower next as it'd be hard to step into for older folks and kids. The listed price is high but owner was willing to accept my offer & I was okay w price. Fireplace was great for the rainy night & grill came in handy too! I wouldn't have liked it as much w more than 4-5 people though since there's only one bathroom. The pictures are accurate so I knew it wasn't the Ritz & was prepared. Neighborhood appeared very safe but there was a police car frequently patrolling -it is Gary afterlife. For just me, it was awesome. It is less than 1 hour driving distance to outlet mall & various activities but not much to do in Miller-which was perfect for me bc all I wanted was a beach week! I highly recommend.

Mixed feelings on Miller's Beach

Mixed feelings on Miller's Beach
  • 3 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!

Relaxing and fun vacation

  • 5 of 5
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.

great vacations

  • 5 of 5
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.
