This home could be out of the pages of Coastal Living Magazine. Wake up to views of Lake Michigan from just across the street. Step out onto the screened porch off the master bedroom and have a cup of coffee as you gear up for a great day at the beach or pool; shopping or gambling.
Gather with the family for delicious meals in the spacious kitchen and dining area. At the end of the day come back to the house and relax in the living area or spend some time in the more casual finished basement.
This beautiful home features a spacious, inviting design defined by crown molding & 10' ceilings. The main floor features a large kitchen with center island and separate dining area and is a great gathering place for those home cooked meals. The living area opens to a screened deck and features a gas fireplace, and Television, Bose Surround Sound Stereo, a Tivo system and a wet bar. Upstairs you will find a large master bedroom with a king size bed and a private bath and two other bedrooms with Queen size beds and a Jack and Jill bath.
The walk-out basement is completely finished and features a great family room with a full service wet bar. There are also two bedrooms in the basement; one with a king size bed and a bunk room with 2 sets of bunks. What a great setup for two or more families!

The Owners are very family oriented people who enjoy traveling and spending time with good friends. They know the value of 'relaxation' and strive to keep this home is as good condition as possible. They know what guest's expectations are because they expect the same when they travel.
Short drive to Chicago, Easy access to Lake Michigan, lots to do in the area, many freinds nearby, feels like the Florida panhandle!
It is a luxurious well deisgned home for the beach. We feel very pampered being here. We each can slow down and enjoy our family. Quality of life and mental state improves dramatically!
Great family getaway. We'd never rented a home before. The Honeysuckle Cottage was perfect for our family of 14. We had a wonderful time. Nicely maintained home with great sized kitchen. We all loved the screened in front porch. It was a favorite gathering place for us in the evenings. Charles, the owner answered all our questions prior to our arrival. We will definitely consider the Honeysuckle Cottage for future get together so.
We have vacationed in the Beachwalk community for six years in five different homes and this is favorite by far. This well maintained home accommodated our four families well and we loved the close proximity to the beach. The owners are very helpful and were even able to rent the coach house space to friends of ours at the last minute. This home has a large kitchen, plenty of dining space for us and lots of peace and quiet for a good night's sleep. We also spent a lot of time on the deck and covered porches. Beachwalk community is a wonderful place to vacation for families with children, there is so much to do in addition to heading to the lake.
This home would work out well for just about any group I can imagine.
Having never been to Michigan City nor having rented a lake house I did a lot of research when deciding where to throw a surprise birthday gathering. My search led me to Honeysuckle Cottage and Charles, the proprietor, answered all of my questions. The house was amazing. Luxurious, had all of the modern features while maintaining a warm, cozy and comfortable feel. We had 14 guests and there was plenty of space for everyone both during the day and at night. The beach was just a few minutes walk away which provided plenty of space for the dog to frolic. We had an amazing time and were sad to leave but we now have a place to keep in mind for future gatherings. I'd recommend it to anyone.
This house accommodated our large group with ease. The kitchen has plenty of space for several cooks and for feeding large groups. The basement entertainment area kept the kids out from under foot in the evenings while allowing the adults plenty of room on the first floor to pursue different activities. The screened in porches are wonderful extra areas to congregate. With beach access directly across the street, this house is a great choice for family fun.
We recently stayed here for a weekend over New Years. We are experienced vacation renters and usually in large groups(4 - 6 couples) and this home was perfect.
We slept 6 couples with ease, this is hard to find as some of these "5 bedrooms" are really 3 with some pull out beds. With 4 bathrooms, no one had any issues with water or privacy.
Becuase it was winter we didn't leave the home much and really enjoyed the spacious, updated kitchen. This is actually where we spent most of our time despite the finished basement and comfortable living room. The ice machine was an added plus as we were not running out to buy ice for drinks!
The master bedroom is wonderful and if you were traveling w/ kids, except for a kitchen, you wouldn't need to leave. The room is extremely large and opens up to a screened in porch.
This is a high end home with great finishing touches, but you still feel comfortable.
We would rent again!
