I had a feeling this place would be a winner but it surpassed my expectations. The spot is rural, quiet, nicely wooded, very pleasant and beautiful in a simple sort of way. The caretaker who let us in and showed us around was very friendly and relaxed, and he offered to bring us firewood on demand and invited us to pick the ripe produce in the garden! Somewhere on the description they claim to have "basically everything you need" in terms of amenities, and that is no exaggeration; there is a conventional coffee maker and a kureg, with filters and coffee into the bargain. Beds were well made and towels hung in the bathroom, and there's a fully stocked linen closet and a variety of bath gel, shampoo, and conditioner in little personal bottles. The house itself certainly is "charming" in the seemingly very well maintained unembellished antique craftsmanship of the building. It's cozy but there's plenty of space, and for our group of 8 who were traveling from various places for a wedding nearby it was highly conducive to spontaneous socializing and coordinating, while never feeling crowded. Owing to the nature of our trip we didn't get a chance to take full advantage of the deep relaxation and plentiful amusements (horseshoe, board games, movies, a great library, a wide open field to frolic in) available to us at this place, but it did suit our needs. We didn't get a great sense of what the immediate area had to offer because the wedding was in Michigan City. The nearby Hesston Diners Club looked very promising, if perhaps a little rich for our budgets (but in a totally non-pretentious kind of way). Dining out doesn't seem all that important here since the kitchen has all you need and is relatively spacious for a cozy little house. I'm pretty sure there are wine tastings and blueberry farms around too, but you can look into that yourself. beaches are 20-30 minutes by car (sorry if we left sand!). I think this house would be an ideal place to spend serious quality time with friends and/or family. It seems to be designed for that in a very thoughtful loving manner. The place is very clean, so much so that i almost wished for more of that old building smell tbh, but the old timey character is preserved in all the places you would reasonably want it, while the caretaker and owners have tended to all the details of modern living.
