Golf vacation

  • 4 of 5

This vacation unit was in a good location - walking distance to the lake and park, close to downtown. It is compact, best for only two people. Stocked with the basics for cooking, but in need of hangers in bedroom closet. In other lake/ocean properties we've rented, we have had the use of beach chairs. Would have been nice to have a couple of those in the closet. That said, we were usually away from the unit during the day golfing and sightseeing so it really wasn't anything we missed. Since we were there in late September, it was quiet and few people at the beach. Because of price and location, we would recommend to others.

Close to Beach - Clean and Cozy Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a weekend in this apartment to celebrate our anniversary. The apartment would be crowded for more than two people, but was fine for just the two of us. It was very clean, quiet, and close to the beach. There are beach paths on both sides of the building -- really is just steps away. The beach was beautiful and not crowded. The pictures are a true representation of the apartment and surroundings with a slight exception -- the trees have grown since the pictures were taken and the Lake is not as easily visible from the deck as it is in the picture, but was still a good view. This is the perfect area for those looking to get away from a commercialized beach scene - though still lots of shops and restaurants nearby. We have never been to Michigan City and were grateful for some recommendations from the property owner. We tried her favorite restaurant and are now fans as well. It was a very memorable weekend and we would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful apartment near a lovely beach!

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment is a gem! I spent a week here to change up my usual Chicago-based workaday routine, and found it had everything I could possibly want: it was very comfy, SO thoughtfully equipped, and immaculately clean. The beach really is steps away (just out the door, go left OR right, and walk up the dune). And though it technically sleeps just 2 people -- and I'd not recommend it for more than that for longer stays, as the space is not large -- I had some friends come down for just a night and was able to pull out the couch so they could stay over too. Check-in was effortless, and the owner was super responsive to any questions I had, even last minute. She also provided some great recommendations for places to eat in the immediate vicinity, and they were all excellent. Michigan City doesn't boast as much to do as some of the "harbor country" sites further north (in Michigan proper), but for convenience to Chicago (I commuted to work from here several days of my stay), a great beach, and gorgeous sunsets, it made the perfect escape-from-the-city for me...and this reasonably priced and beautifully maintained apartment was the ideal place to stay while there.

Very nice, clean, quiet, close to Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

The building was just a bit difficult to find at first (i.e. we had to get out of the car and walk up and down the street), but thereafter everything was fine. The apartment was clean, comfortable, quiet at night, and close to Lake Michigan and a very nice beach (a short walk over the dune, really just a few minutes). We took a one-bedroom unit for two parents and a three-year-old, which proved large enough. If we return to Michigan City/ Northern Indiana, I don't see why we would not consider staying there again. Quick suggestions: an umbrella on the balcony, a rack to dry clothes and towels, maybe some hangers in the closet, an extra kitchen towel. Our security deposit was returned about one week after our stay.
