About the property

Amazing 6 BR, 4.5 BA Luxury Home in Beachwalk/separate guest house

NO PROM GROUPS. The 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath Kathryn Rose (sleeps 20) and its 1 bedroom, 1 bath Rose Bud coach house (sleeps 4), have been totally redecorated! New wall colors, bedding, additional furniture and updated kitchen.

These two homes can be rented independently or together, depending on your needs. Together, they can sleep a total of 24 people, making them a great location for family reunions, weddings, football weekends, church or scrap booking groups or business retreats. The Kathryn Rose and Rose bud offer your group a comfortable, spacious setting to relax and enjoy your time together.

The Kathryn Rose overlooks the community park which makes it ideal for sitting on the wrap-a-round screen porch and relaxing with a glass of wine and watching the kids play. Cook and eat inside or cook outside on the gas grills with 3 picnic tables on the concrete driveway.

The 1st floor fully equipped eat-in kitchen seats 20 and is perfect for group gatherings. Amenities include 2 dishwashers and a second sink in the center island. The living room has a fireplace, flat screen TV and privacy doors for when the queen-size sleeper sofa is used. A powder room is conveniently located right across the hall as is the washer and dryer. Also on the first floor is a master bedroom with queen bed and its own private full bath…ideal for older parents.

The 2nd floor has 4 bedrooms, one with a king bed and baby crib, the other 3 with queen beds along with 2 complete bathrooms with combination tub/showers.

The 3rd floor has a 1000 sf bunk room with 6 twin beds, a full bath and a sitting area with a queen sleeper sofa and TV-- perfect for the kids!

The Rose Bud coach house has a king-size bed in the master bedroom, a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room, a full kitchen and bath and washer and dryer. Enjoy the evening breeze or your morning coffee on the private screen porch.

HAVE A REALLY BIG GROUP? We also own Irish Eyes (HomeAway #314356) which is only one vacant lot away and with its Bailey's Irish Cream coach house, can sleep 25. Ask about our 4 house discount! Rent all four homes and you can house 49 people in comfort -- or rent each home or any combination that best suits your group--the perfect setting for your family reunion.

Our four homes are located in the award-winning Beachwalk Resort community where there are activities a plenty right outside your doorstep: tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, a heated pool and wading pool, a playground and park, putting green, snack shop and Lake Kai, a small private lake for swimming, fishing (no license required), and non-motorized watercraft use. In the summer, Beachwalk sponsors outdoor kid’s daytime activities and evening family movies. The homes are located next to a school which has a great play ground and wonderful sledding hill in the winter. Ice skating is also available on lake Kai-only 1 block away!

Also within easy walking distance is Beachwalk’s private entrance to the beautiful Lake Michigan Sheridan Beach where you can enjoy swimming, jet skiing, fishing, sailing and water skiing.

Other attractions in the area include Washington Park, the Zoo, the Blue Chip Gambling Casino, the Lighthouse shopping mall, 3 museums, winery tours and a host of fine restaurants. The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and State Park boasts 8500 acres of lakeshore, bogs, forests, and enormous sand dunes and is only minutes away. Activities there include swimming, fishing, hiking, picnicking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing.

Come join us in the off-season for a Notre Dame football weekend-only about 40 minutes from South Bend.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We did a multi-generational family gathering for 15 ranging in age from 5 to 81. We had difficulty identifying a property that was suitable not only in size but bedding, room arrangement, location and amenities. The property could not have been more perfect for our group as all adults had at least a queen-size bed and access to a full bathroom while the kids had a huge loft, sitting area and bathroom to themselves on the 3rd floor. We put Grandma and Grandpa in the first floor bedroom with full bath so they didn't have to climb the stairs. All of the adult children took the second floor bedrooms and bathrooms while we put all the grandchildren on the 3rd floor. All with room to spare.

The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to find the equipment necessary to cook 3 meals a day for all. We enjoyed time at the beach (about 2 1/2 blocks) as well as the pool (less than a block away) and on the one day it rained, we were able to spread out onto the huge screened porch.

We made use of many of the Beachwalk amenities such as the paddleboat and kayaks, basketball and volleyball courts and the putting green. The kids have all asked if we can do this again!
