About Jen Truszkowski

We live in the suburbs of Chicago. I am an interior designer and my husband is in real estate. We have been renting properties to vacationers in Harbor Country for over 7 years and we enjoy offering beautiful homes to families for vacations they will cherish for a lifetime!

Jen Truszkowski purchased this house in 2012

Why Jen Truszkowski chose Michigan City

We have been enjoying the NW Indiana/SW Michigan lakefront for years, but had been searching for a house close to the beach. When the house in front of this became available (VRBO#452281), we jumped on the chance to have a waterfront property. The house needed to be completely gutted and rebuilt including new plumbing, electric, HVAC, flooring, bathrooms, kitchens, etc., which gave us the opportunity to design and furnish the home so it is ideal for summer vacation rentals. This home came on the market the next year. Although we were still recovering from the previous remodel, we knew having two neighboring homes would offer more space for reunions, large families and more. We gave this home the same overhaul and now can offer double the fun!

What makes this house unique

Dune Fine is a great place for kids. Our back yard offers privacy for get togethers on the patio and lots of wide open space for kids to run and explore. It's easy to run back and forth from the water to the house, sunsets are at your fingertips every night, and the sounds of the waves crashing reminds us we are someplace special!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5
My family just completed a week at Dune Fine and we had a ball! 4 adults and 7 grandkids--perfect size. The house is furnished beautifully and everything is very modern compared to the other properties my other family members were renting. Ours was the "go to" patio and house for gathering. Great kitchen and very well stocked with everything we needed to feed large groups. Washer and dryer in basement was well used with all the kids! We loved it!!

Cute Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Dune Fine was a lovely and comfortable getaway. The home was well appointed and it was close to the lake. The patio and the fire pit added enjoyable living space for our group. We will definitely check availability in the future. One thing I would like to point out for future renters, there is a city parking area across from the house. You need a permit to park there and can check ahead of time for daily permits. They office where you would buy them are closed on weekends. There is street parking but it can fill up quickly because of the other units in the area. The owner of this unit was very responsive and helpful when we had questions.

Adorable!

  • 5 of 5
Picture perfect house. Absolutely adorable and full of character. Great quality and thoughtful touches throughout. The house has everything you’d need. The kitchen was stocked better my own home kitchen. A real care for detail and for having a fabulous vacation. Easy to get to from Chicago and just a short walk over the dunes to a beautiful beach. I’d stay there over and over again. Great for kids of all ages.

Dune Fine is adorable!!

  • 5 of 5
Dune Fine is great. Everything is new and really clean. It's steps from the beach. We had 6 adults and 6 kids and the house was perfect! The kids loved the upstairs bedroom with all the twin beds so they could sleep together. The house is very comfortable and has all the amenities we needed. It took us 1 hr and 10 minutes door to door from Chicago. We'll be back again.
