Wonderful house on top of beauty

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed often in Beverly Shores. This was by far the most beautiful home in our experience. Inside is grand comfort in a wonderful setting. Outside is unmatched beauty of the Indiana Dunes, you see wonderful views form all parts of the house. We came to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday, she said it was the best ever. She has some physical limits, but with the elevator she had no problems staying in the beautiful third floor bedroom. I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants beauty, luxury and an increadable dunes location. We also found eating at Bartlet's a special part of our adventure. Want to enjoy life go to the Silver Herron.

Sister Trip

  • 5 of 5

Every year my sisters and I get together to spend a relaxing vacation away from husbands, children, and hectic life demands. We chose the silver heron because it was right on the lake. It is wonderful. My one sister had a broken leg and the elevator inside was fabulous at getting her to every floor. There were a few problems on arrival, but the owner did a good job making up any setbacks. We loved the place. We went for walks on the beach every morning and evening. We drove to the Dunes and enjoyed the state park. We drove to Michigan City and visited a fabulous Light House Museum. I have recommended this place to many. The house was clean. There are two grills and one was filthy and the other was not too hard to clean. The beds were just right. It was fabulous. Lots of stairs.

An Amazing Piece of Property!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my, oh my, oh my did we have a great time this past weekend at the Silver Heron! Everyone in our party thought the house was just spectacular! The lake was at it's dramatic best with really amazing waves, and with views from almost every room, we felt as though we were right on the beach! The Chicago skyline just glowed at sunset and we were able to get some stunning pictures. The owners are very kind and accessible. We would definitely rent again for longer than just the weekend - of course if I owned it - I'd never leave! It truly is an amazing piece of property!

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

My group of 8 friends and I had an amazing time here. The house is enormous, has more space than you know what to do with, and there are enough games and activities in and around the house that we didn't even want to leave the area!

Lynnea is extremely easy to work with, calls / emails back almost immediately when we asked questions and made sure we felt comfortable with the rental experience.

All in all, an AMAZING rental home and the best rental experience I've ever had!

Relax in Luxury

  • 5 of 5

The Silver Heron was just perfect -- spacious, outfitted with all the amenities to feel like royalty, and optimally located on Lake Michigan with access to numerous outdoor adventures. Additionally, the owners are helpful, reliable, and a pleasure to deal with.
