About Kerry Brown

The owners are both in the entertainment industry and live in LA. He spent many years in Chicago, and his family owned the home next door. When presented with the opportunity to buy The Hideout for themselves, they jumped at the opportunity. They now own both homes and are now working on completely rehabbing the home next door (The Lookout- stay tuned...) to offer the opportunity for large groups to be able to stay close together.

Kerry Brown purchased this house in 2010

Why Kerry Brown chose Michigan City

The homeowners love the feeling of stepping back in time when they come back. Enjoying summer like they did in their childhood when the days lasted forever and every day offered new, magical adventures...

Homemade root beer at Carlson's, the intimate Michigan City Zoo, building the ultimate sand castle, the lighthouse framing Chicago's skyline during beautiful sunsets, plus endless new opportunities!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5
A group of 8 friends stayed in this house for the weekend, and it was a blast. The house was better than we expected. The beach was a very short walk and really nice, not crowded at all compared to Chicago beaches.

We had fun using the hot tub and grilling out every meal. My husband was a bit worried about the kitchen having everything he needs (he's a bit of a kitchen snob), but it was fine, everything that we needed was right there ready to use.

The house was great, it was a wonderful time and the owner and manager were easy to get a hold of. We're definitely considering coming back next summer.

Great retreat

  • 5 of 5
The house is sunny with fresh decor and feels much more spacious than the 1800 sqft it is. The layout manages to provide ample areas for group gatherings as well as time alone (tucked away TV den with nice flat screen and DVD is especially great for kids --as well as zoo 1/4 mile away). The deck is absolutely huge and perfect for entertaining (with grill).

I agree with the other reviewer that this house is not for anyone with mobility issues (many stairs to get to the house). But, if that isn't an issue, than the hilltop location is definitely a plus for privacy and bright rooms.

The property manager, Jen, is really fantastic. She was very responsive to our questions and any issues that arose (internet reception spotty, but she and owner immediately followed up to find a solution) . She really seemed genuinely interested in making sure that we had a great vacation.

The house is nicely stocked with beach items (toys, towels, umbrella, beach chairs, etc.) and beach is a short block away.

Great week

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week at "The Hideout" 6/28/13 - 7/5/13 a perfectly "beachy" vibe. The deck is ENORMOUS, and perfect for entertaining. The beach is a one block walk away, the zoo and park close by. Hot tub was a great way to end the day...(or, the middle...or, right after breakfast). Very comfortably accommodated our group, and kudos to Jen, the property manager; she did a great job, was helpful and responsive to the handful of questions we had, and made sure we had everything we needed. We considered just staying until they finally kicked us out, but figured the next guests would notice our presence....Would absolutely recommend to anyone with a group. There is plenty of space, the beds and rooms are all comfortable, and there are areas for everyone to retreat to. We had two toddlers (ages 3 and 16 months) and felt like there was plenty of space to play, unwind with a DVD a night in the den, or read on the sun porch. Note there IS a 40-stair walk UP to the hideout (hence, the views) so it would not be great for anyone with mobility issues. Also, we brought a baby gate for the top of the stairs off the deck for anyone with toddlers. Great stay, great home. Well done.

Beautifully renovated beach house and the perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a wonderful week in Michigan City, Indiana. We owe the success of our week there to the beautiful house we rented from Vacation Rental by Owner Listing # 452282. They call it “THE HIDEOUT”, which is the perfect name for this private home. It was well located to everything we did, an easy walk to the beach, playground or board walk. Wether we were fishing, bike riding or building sand castles everything was in close proximity to this meticulously renovated house.

The house has an easy, open floor plan so our family of 6 never felt like we were on top of each other. We easily had room for another family. With 4 spacious bedrooms we all slept comfortably. There are so many rooms and spaces to hang out (even a TV room) with lots of windows and beautiful views. The kitchen, 2 full baths and powder room are all new! The hardwood floors throughout the house are in perfect condition so no splitters on little feet. One of the greatest features of this beach house has to be the oversized deck! We spent hours out there and watched many a sunset. The owners are a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend renting this house.

July 4 Beach Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I love Sheridan beach and this beach house! It's awesome!! I spent my summer holiday at 'the Hidedout' with my family and cousins, and we had a blast. It's a perfect house for kids and families because it's such a short walk to the beach, the park and the zoo, and it has a huge and very private outdoor deck. It can easily accommodate a big family -- there were 8 of us -- all ages, and we were all supremely comfortable. While we spent most of our time at the beach (it's by far the best beach in the Indiana dunes!) we also went shopping at the Lighthouse Mall for great discounts on designer brands and ate out a few times -- my favorite was the Shoreline Brewery.

A perfect spot for summer and winter holidays, and family reunions.

  • 5 of 5
Our family had such a fabulous time at 'the Hideout' in August that we chose it for our family reunion over the Thanksgiving holiday. We love the Indiana Dunes and lived in the area from 1984-1993, but this beach house is really special! It's ideally situated across from Sheridan Beach -- one of the widest and most beautiful beaches in the dunes, perfect for swimming, wading, windsurfing, boating, building sandcastles and taking long walks. The house is newly renovated and immaculately maintained. It's super comfy with great amenities (all the appliances are new) and it has gorgeous views of the beach and Lake Michigan. It's a perfect retreat and vacation house. After a long day at the beach we climbed up the stairs and relaxed on the deck or in the front room and enjoyed the lake breezes -- up and away from neighbors in complete privacy -- a unique asset for this popular beach area. The house has an open plan kitchen, dining and living room, which is perfect for entertaining. After a shower (and usually a short nap) we gathered on the huge outdoor deck for drinks and dinner. The TV room was appreciated by all, especially the kids. And in November everyone loved that we were only a three minute walk to the park and the zoo with the kids, and a four minute drive to restaurants and great shopping, so everything seemed easy and fun. The Lighthouse Premium Outlet Mall was a huge plus, with great discounts on top brands, it was a great place for holiday shopping. And beach sunsets in November are spectacular -- we can't wait to go back!
