Unique and Historic Location

Our backyard and beach IS the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Only a sliver of national park and nature trail separate the Retreat from an amazing semi-private, sugar-sand beach with a 150ft sand bar and crystal clear water with no muck, rocks, or algae. This little slice of paradise contains one of the most diverse ecosystems in the entire national park system. It is world famous for the Karner Blue butterfly and has over 369 species of flowering plants and cacti. The first manned-glider ride, preceding the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk, occurred on historic Chanute Hill (200ft from our rear deck) in 1896 by Octave Chanute. The Aquatorium, a half-mile nature trail away, contains both the Chanute and Tuskegee Airmen Museums. Lake Street Beach, three blocks away, has a watercraft launch.

About Jim

As an Engineer and General Contractor, I have a passion for designing and building luxury smart homes. Being from a large family, I create spaces to accommodate large families and groups who want to celebrate, entertain, and relax.

My wife is an accomplished Interior Designer and Event Planner whose work has been published by Martha Stewart and Vogue Magazine and loves to furnish inviting spaces, ensuring that all the details and creature-comforts are attended to.

We are proud to call the Dream Retreat home and enjoy our private oasis on the beach, in the Hampton's of the Mid-West, where we can escape from it all.

We truly hope you like our home as much as we do.

Jim purchased this house in 2005

Why Jim chose Indiana

Dream Retreat was conceptualized in 2005 and meticulously designed, built, and furnished for the sole purpose of entertaining large groups and beachfront relaxation. We are in the memory-making business and have hosted thousands from all over.

Completed in 2008, Miller Beach Dream Retreat is 6000 sq.ft., comprising six half-levels (Level 1 through 6 with six steps between each) and an Attached Guest House. 2000 sq.ft. of outdoor living space are multi-tiered decks with amazing views and amenities. The floorplan is functional and flowing with large gathering spaces for entertaining on a grand scale as well as comfortable, cozy nooks for managed solitude. After staying in many properties around the globe, we have defined luxury vacation rental.

Miller Beach, Indiana is the closest beach side community to Chicago (40 minutes) and is often referred to as the Hampton's of the Mid-West. It is the epicenter of NW Indiana and a unique and growing artist community full of galleries, shopping, fine and casual dining, casinos, amusement parks, and miles of pristine beaches and trails. Everything is conveniently located within a 45 minute drive or train ride.

Views from the Dream Retreat to the North and East are pure nature: Lake Michigan and rolling dunes. To the Northwest, see the unmistakable Chicago skyline.

Follow the path to the semi-private, sugar-sand beach, wade onto the 150ft sand bar, swim in the crystal clear water. Enjoy no rocks, muck, or algae.

What makes this house unique

Unlike most beachfront rentals that are flanked on both sides by noisy, nosy neighbors and offer little to no privacy, the Dream Retreat was built to be private and secluded. We are located on a quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac street on a corner lot and 350 feet from our closest neighbor.

Our backyard and beach IS the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. This little slice of paradise contains one of the most diverse ecosystems in the entire national park system. It is world famous for the Karner Blue butterfly and has over 369 species of flowering plants and cacti.

The first manned-glider ride, preceding the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk, occurred on historic Chanute Hill (200ft from our rear deck) in 1896 by Octave Chanute. The Aquatorium, a half-mile walk on a nature trail, contains both the Chanute and Tuskegee Airmen Museums.

Our guest list is confidential, but includes A-list celebrities, professional sports stars, and noted journalists.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Met with a bunch of girls who all Scrapbook. That's what we did from Thursday until Sunday in Nov. 2011. Beautiful home, beautiful location, beautiful times!! Would I do again? In a heartbeat!! Oh and did I mention the hot tub. This would be a great place for a small family reunion or maybe a New Years Eve party. Very lovely--hoping to make plans to do it again.

Spectacular setting for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Dream Retreat is just as pictured with total privacy, stunning views, and very clean. The open-air hot tub on the main deck makes you feel like you are amongst the sand dunes. We had a large group, 16 adults, and never felt crowded...plenty of seating in the loft, living room, rec room, etc. The house is well designed so the early-to-bed’s were not kept awake by the late-night revelers. The kitchen is outstanding...appliances are top of the line and had all the items we needed; two coffee makers were a bonus. There were plenty of bath and beach towels and 2 large washers and dryers. The multi-level decks were wonderful with very sturdy hand rails for us old folks. The sound system, which was easy to use, had speakers both inside and outside on the decks. The kids hooked up their phones and played music; they said the internet was very fast. We enjoyed evening chats under the stars around the fire-pit table. We all loved it and had a GREAT time!

Ultimate End of Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth visit in three years to this beautiful, large and comfortable home. It offers all the benefits of a beach vacation in a delightful private setting in a very quaint town. The house has been elegantly outfitted and furnished in excellent taste by Jim’s wife. The outdoor areas are beautifully landscaped and well-appointed, the neighborhood is quiet, and the views of the lake and Chicago skyline are splendid. The new cafe and brewery on Main Street are noteworthy.

The owner of this retreat has maintained it with love and takes considerable pride in it. Jim is exceedingly generous, meticulous, and always true to his word. Our first trip to the Dream Retreat was in June 2013, and each time since there has been something new and exciting to keep things interesting. This time, he replaced the guesthouse counters and desktop with a beautiful Carerra marble; the time before was the addition of remote AC units in every single room in the house. To stay at this beautiful retreat is indeed a great treat.

We look forward to our next visit to see just what else is in store! We highly recommend his house and hospitality.

Amazing, Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to share our gratitude for making our family reunion possible at your Miller Beach house. We have always dreamed of having a vacation home that could accommodate our families from Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana. Those who didn’t drive were able to get flights right into Midway. We were greeted by the owner who made sure to show us all the amenities (there are a lot of them!) and answer our questions. Most other places usually just have a lock box and have to fumble around to find things on our own, not here, we were well taken care of.

The house and grounds are truly remarkable and well thought out. There seem to be rooms and bathrooms everywhere. My wife and I stayed in the beautiful master suite with a amazing view and the various relations, families, couples, and the children were placed throughout the house. We shared our meals on the dining table that could just about accommodate all of us. We shared the meal duties and used the kitchen facilities as well as the outdoor grill for a wonderful rib night. The outdoor spa was our favorite spot after hours. Kids loved trying to count all the stars. The walk to the beach on the nature trail was beautiful and the skyline of Chicago was perfect!

Miller Beach is a great little town. We enjoyed our fresh smoothies and shopping at Indie-Indie store. We ate at Flamingo’s one night and had really good pizza loaded with cheese and toppings. The adults had some good suds at the Miller brewery.

We highly recommend this house for family reunions, it was a memorable experience!

Beautiful home for daughter’s bachelorette party!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to do something totally different for my only daughter's bachelorette party....we had 15 women come from all over, including 2 from Mexico, up to this magnificent home!!!! There was more than enough space and bedrooms and baths for everyone to be comfortable. The home is welcoming and beautifully decorated!! Every room has a view of the lake and sunsets were gorgeous. We all gathered for cocktails on the balconies to watch the boats and sunsets on the lake then made dinners in the fabulous kitchen. Everyone that came up for her event was in awe of this amazing home!!! We felt like royalty!!

Jim was very quick to answer emails and phone calls with all my questions and made renting from him so easy. Besides staying at this home we enjoyed all that Miller Beach has to offer. We did a wine tour, ate at the Brasserie, and had a delicious dinner and drinks at Miller Bakery Café. It was beyond anything my daughter could imagine!! Would I do this again? In a split second!! I can't say enough about this wonderful property and I will definitely rent from this owner again in the near future.

Can't wait to return, Claudia, Mother of the Bride!!

Get ready to be pampered!

  • 5 of 5

After vacationing many years in other beachfront communities, this was my family's first stay in Miller Beach, IN.  I have a large family (7 siblings) and we were never able to find a house large enough to accommodate us. This house fit the bill perfectly. First, it truly is a mansion.  Impeccably furnished, spotless, and the amenities are quite unique. We truly felt spoiled, from the cedar sauna to the outdoor jacuzzi to the steam shower to the gourmet kitchen to the amazing views of the Chicago skyline.  We also loved that bath towels and beach towels were provided; it made packing so much easier!  We thoroughly enjoyed the local Miller Beach Café where we spent many happy hours listening to live jazz and sipping craft cocktails. I can't say enough good things about the house and the owner is so easy to work with, accessible at all times and goes out of his way to make sure the vacation goes smoothly.  We've already booked our week for next year and I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for the perfect vacation.

Great Week on the Beach with Family

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 12 with 4 children, 6 and under, were here. The property is right up against the national park and we saw deer most of the mornings. All but one of the days were spent on the beach. Unfortunately the few steps to the beach was closer to 1/4 mile and with a couple of steep dunes proved to much for our troop with supplies. But the drive to the public beach was 3 blocks away and paying the $5 day parking fee made it much easier on us. The water is shallow and clear. Great for our little ones. And the goggles we found in a box of beach toys at the house let us explore the bottom.Safety was not an issue as there were police patrolling the beaches every day and a lifeguard is on duty in the afternoons (at least the days we were there).

The kitchen is amazing! This is the first house we have ever rented that had pots/pans that would actually hold a doubled recipe. The island is huge but got a little snug when 2 or 3 were in there cooking. The 2 refrigerators, one on the 1st level, held our weeks supply of food. The 3 older children used the island for meals and those who couldn't get around the table used the chairs and sofa for meals. There are extra tables and chairs but we hated to use the floor space. Evenings were on the deck with music from the sound system but there are mosquitoes being so close to a pond.

This house has 6 levels separated by 6-7 stairs. The bedrooms are on 4 of those levels with a bathroom.We had trouble finding someplace for the bathroom towels to dry as there is only one towel rack in each. Jim was working on a door when we arrived and returned a couple days later when we were having difficulties with the cooling system. Hilary answered every email and phone call. They were both very helpful. We didn't try any restaurants locally but it was a short trip to Merriville to the Albanese Candy Factory and an evening meal. The area around the house is run down but there are pockets of revival. And a walk down to the Marquette Park Lagoon, which is lovely, was the perfect setting for a marriage proposal. The home could use a spring cleaning, bottle caps under the sofa, and repairs need to be done but considering it is peak season, we can't imagine how difficult that is to do when people are moving in and out. The many levels were difficult for me with arthritic knees and the 22mo. who is just getting the hang of navigating steps.

Owner's Response: Valerie: We enjoyed hosting your family and are glad you had such a great time! After all, we are in the memory making business and specialize in large family gatherings. The walk to the beach is beautiful and winds through a tiny sliver of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, which is one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world! One cannot be any closer to the semi-private beach than where the Dream Retreat is located. Starting from our Pro-Sand Volley ball court, there is one small dune slope on the way to the beach that joins an asphalt path to the water. My extended family (ages 2 to 80 years) can make it from the court to the water in about 8 minutes with all our gear, coolers, strollers, etc. One of my family’s favorite places to hang out is around the large island in the spacious kitchen. The island is 5ft by 10ft and has a prep sink. The perimeter countertop and wine bar is over 28 linear feet long. Both of which offer plenty of of counter space for chefs of all ages to work their magic. Most of my family members love to cook so we take pride in offering a complete set of small appliances, cookware, bakeware, etc. We recently installed a Mitsubishi, auto-learning/auto-sensing, duct-less air conditioning systems that has eleven (11) independently controlled wall units so guests can customize the temperature in any room in the house. We have posted signs next to each thermostat on how to operate the units. We also offer a full set of instructions for this and almost everything in our comprehensive binder that we provide at check-in. My parents are not good with steps either, so I designed and built the Dream Retreat to be six half-levels. The maximum number of steps between landings (both inside and outside) is seven and there are double-sets of sturdy hand rails on each. Thanks again and hope to see you real soon! Jim + Hilary
