Perfect getaway from city life!
The home was even better than we imagined! Absolutely wonderful – we couldn’t have had a more relaxing time! The house was beautiful and perfect for our group of 6 adults. Plenty of room, incredibly comfortable and modern while still having that “beachy” feel. Everything we needed besides our food was there waiting for us, and the fireplace was perfect for a few of the chilly nights we had during our stay (we stayed mid-June).
The house is set in a gorgeous wooded setting, but just a quick drive to all of the great things New Buffalo and Michigan City have to offer! Grocery stores and convenient stores were easily accessible (within 5 minutes), which was perfect, but you still got the feeling of being remote – so peaceful! We spent every night either out on the back deck, or building a fire out on the beach. We spent many of our mornings drinking coffee on the deck or taking a walk around the “neighborhood” before our trips to the beach. We loved spending our week in the house, tucked into the woods, but just a short drive to restaurants and pubs if that’s what we felt like that day/night. It was the perfect getaway from the Chicago hustle and bustle.
The guys in our group enjoyed the golf course just a mile down the road, as well as Whittaker Woods, about 10 minutes away. The outlet mall in Michigan City made a great day trip for the ladies when we happened to have a day that the weather wasn’t conducive to laying out at the beach. A nice touch – Light Harbor provided a parking sticker that we could use to park our vehicle at the private beach just a half a mile away. This was a pleasant surprise and a nice addition as we could haul all of our stuff and park right next to the beach! The distance is definitely walkable, but was nice on days when we didn’t feel like hoofing it with all of our stuff.
We had a phenomenal time and were sad to pack up and leave after our week stay. Gorgeous home, beautiful surroundings and lots of fun at the beach. Will definitely be back for another relaxing vacation!
