About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Kick off your shoes and prepare to retreat to your own personal sanctuary for a relaxing and memorable experience.

Dreamwold House is surrounded by trees on a large yard next to woods. This property allows for privacy, deer and bird watching,and best of all memory making.

The house is pure comfort. The living room has warm wooden floors, arched doorways, a comfortable sofa , wing back chairs and a leather lounger. A Regency gas fireplace warms the soul. There is a first-floor bedroom with wooden floor, a four-poster full-size mahogany bed, a writing table, reading chair, and a highboy.

On the second floor, there is a queen-size bed (with pillowtop mattress in bedroom two) that affords a lush wooded view, and two twins in bedroom three. Both bedrooms have plush carpeting. There are two modern baths both with a tub, shower, and a tubular skylight.

Beautiful large modern kitchen with vaulted ceiling is fully equipped for cooking and dining. A full basement has a washer/dryer for your laundry needs.

The12x26 screened and carpeted porch with beamed ceiling allows you to enjoy day or night porch dining in comfort. Read your favorite summer book or rock your cares away in rocking chairs to the sound of chirping birds or the night frogs croaking.

Walk just 10 minutes along winding wooded roads to experience our beaches and dunescapes on beautiful Lake Michigan. We have bikes, wagons, beach toys in the garage. Children love the wagon ride to the beach.

Dreamwold House is next door to Birchwood Cabin ( #373408) it's sister property located in the woods. Families rent both properties to accommodate extended family/friends.

You must be a minimum of 25 years old to lease. Check in is at 3 pm and check out at 10 am Central Standard Time.

Come on over for memory making year round!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for providing such a warm and cozy environment to enjoy a weekend of family and friends. Your cottage was perfect to celebrate a bridal shower and create many wonderful memories. We enjoyed the amazing fall weather, beautiful views, and trips to the beach and dunes. Thanks again for a weekend of laughter, love and family. Many blessings to you!

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook all our meals for 5 days; the kids toys and games were so nice for our girls; we even used the fireplace during a storm. Owners were very responsive and friendly. The home was so comfortable, spacious, clean, and had everything we could think to need. We loved the wagons for toting our kids and gear to the beach, the grill, and especially the screened-in porch. Thank you for our fantastic vacation!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by this wonderful home! It's just as pictured, but better! The beach is a short beautiful walk away and many other beaches are a short drive away! The only suggestion I had for the property owner is we wish we had a trailer to pull behind the bikes to pull the young babies. There are almost a dozen bikes provided, but we didn't get to use any for lack of having anything to take out 15 month old in.

I would definitely recommend this house for your visit and look forward to coming again!!

Very clean and very homey! Everything you need for your home away from home! Loved the screened in porch also!

Beautiful, relaxing retreat in Michiana Shores!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time relaxing at Dreamwold with friends and family. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished with everything one needs to have a great time! The beach is a short, 8-minute walk away. The house is surrounded by woods and beautiful gardens. The screen porch on the back of the house is s great spot for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails! The beds are comfortable and the house is immaculately clean. Mariya and Ian are very friendly and accommodating hosts. Been staying at Dreamwold every summer for 12 years! Love it here!

The kitchen is large and outfitted with all necessities for cooking meals right there! We love the large screen porch and spend a lot of time there. The beds are comfortable and the living room with gas fireplace provides a cozy, comfy feeling.
