About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Come enjoy this beautifully appointed Cottage located in the award winning Beach Resort Community. This four bedroom, 2.5 bath cottage has all the comforts of home. A 20 foot dining room table awaits your family meal. The open concept floor plan lends itself to entertaining the family and the cook won't feel left out while in the kitchen. Hardwood floors and tall cottage style doors throughout this home really give it a spacious feel. The kids will enjoy this friendly neighborhood and all there is to do: outdoor heated pool, tennis, basketball, putting green, fishing/ swimming lake, pond, park areas, children's playgrounds, and a private boardwalk to the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan.

Close to all area amenities including the Michigan City Zoo, Washington Park playgrounds, and the marina. Feel like shopping? The outlet mall is less than a five minute drive. Feeling lucky? The Blue Chip Casino is a three minute drive. Great dining options locally and in New Buffalo, Michigan which is a quick 15 minute drive. The Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo now includes the Hard Rock Cafe.

Feeling adventurous? There is a skate park just five minutes away, Jet Ski rental at Washington Park beach and fishing charters by the score. If you like your adventure on foot, try the many trails and beautiful grounds at the Indiana Dunes Lakeshore State Park. The list goes on and on. So much to do!

About Mike

We built The Cottage and its coach house, 'The Cozy Cottage' after years of dreaming of owning our own vacation property. Being Chicago natives, we found Michigan City to be the perfect, quaint, yet thriving area to build our vacation properties.

Why Mike chose Indiana

Lake Michigan is one of the most pristine beaches in the United States. The proximity to Chicago makes it great location to vacation. The house is always clean and it has been well thought out. We have been vacationing for years and know exactly what it takes to have a perfect rental. We have put great detail in providing a home that has everything for you. We hope you enjoy our home and the Beachwalk area for your family vacation.

What makes this house unique

Clean, clean, clean! We promise our property will be clean and in mint condition when you arrive. We want our cottage to be your home away from home and your vacation to be a memorable one! We have a property manager on call 24 hours a day should a situation arise during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Your home was absolutely perfect! The adults enjoyed the open kitchen and extra large dining table, and the kids enjoyed playing bags in the yard and sitting around the fire pit. The walk to the beach was short and easy. We would love to come back.

Three generation getaway - 2 to 65 yrs old

  • 5 of 5

For the 10 of us including 4 kids, ages 2, almost 5, almost 5 and almost 8, the bedroom/bathroom situation was fine. The older 3 (brothers and a female cousin) could stay in 1 bedroom and the 2 year old in a bedroom with his parents. This Would not be as workable a situation for 10 in a few more years. There are only 2 queen bedrooms with 3 singles in the 2 other bedrooms so one couple had that situation.

The downstairs was great - very large open room with large modern kitchen, T.V. area and long dining table that easily seated 10 (or more). This allowed people to do some work on computers at the table at the same time. The community facilities and the playground were very nice and easily accessible as was Lake Michigan. The screened in porch got a lot of use as well. It probably could use a little work on the flooring.

The whole setting of Beachwalk is very comfortable. Michigan City is very nearby and has enough supermarkets and restaurant options to make eating in or out easy.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a GREAT home to rent in the Michigan City area, you should definitely go with The Cottage! I actually think the home was nicer in person than it looked in the listing. The property was in immaculate condition and had more than enough room for 3 couples and 3 children. The owners were very prompt in responding to correspondence leading up to our stay. The community itself was very nice although I would definitely recommend renting the golf cart to help you get around the community and down to the beach. We had a relaxing stay at The Cottage and would recommend it to all of our family and friends!!
