This is a lovingly-decorated cottage with a nautical theme in the least-touristy Indiana Dunes beach town: Miller Beach. It is the perfect place to get away from it all for a weekend or longer stay. We are within walking distance to the lovely Lake Street beach, and a quick drive or walk to Marquette Park, which has been restored and re-landscaped recently and is stunning. We are even closer to the gorgeous Miller Woods Trail and Douglas Center. The Douglas Center hosts everything from nature walks to kid classes, all free. We are also close to jogging and biking trails. Miller Beach is a funky, artistic community with several outstanding restaurants, a celebrated microbrew pub, and a Sunday farmer's market, among other things. We are close to Portage, which has more mainstream chain restaurants, a roller rink, and a bowling alley. The South Shore line runs from Chicago to Miller frequently and takes exactly one hour. The drive from the city is also around an hour, sometimes less.
Our family uses this house so it is fully outfitted for a family and guests to enjoy the beach and hiking trails ad family time at home. We have a ton of beach stuff like chairs and coolers and toys, yard sports like frisbee, badminton and croquet, board games, and toys for your children to play with like a train set, blocks, and numerous books. We also have a record player and a lot of records for you to enjoy, a vintage console tv that gets Roku (Netflix and Amazon Prime and Boomerang) and a DVD player and collection of movies to watch.
