Photos don't do this place justice. Beautifully appointed. Perfect.

The Nest was absolutely fabulous. The views are better than we expected. The appointments in the home were better than expected. We had everything we needed to make a beautiful Easter brunch. The owners and staff were available and helpful when needed. We will definitely be back!

Lovely Beachfront Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed here twice and have already booked our third stay! Kathleen, the property manager, is great. The property is a 2-story place with a nice entry area, bed & master bedroom (large bedroom with views overlooking the water & nice bathroom with tub and separate shower) on the first floor. Upstairs, there’s another full bathroom, large kitchen, dining & living area next to an amazing sun room/seating area perched over the backyard with amazing views of the private beach.

In colder weather, the gas fireplaces make the living area & master bedroom cozy. A/C is powerful in the summer. There are plenty of toys for kids and adults to enjoy by the water - floaties, sandcastle bucket, lawn chaises, beach chairs, beach towels, etc. My husband used a bike to grab breakfast for us from a new local bakery that’s close by.

The Nest is a lovely property - quiet, clean & comfortable with lots of creature comforts. It’s also an easy drive from Chicago. We love it and can’t wait to go back!

An exquisite and breathtaking view of Lake Michigan wrapped around us as we enjoyed the beautifully elegant and tastefully furnished "NEST." I just can't say enough about this jewel of a vacation find. Every amenity we could have asked for and more. Comfortable beds, Fine linens and attention to every detail were so appreciated. Already dreaming of a return trip!!!
