My sister, Ericka, and I manage our beach cottages which have been in our family since the 1920’s. It is our goal to create an environment in each cottage that is as unique and beautiful as the Indiana Dunes are themselves. And, when you are ready to step beyond the beach and magnificent Lake Michigan, whether you are interested in birding, hiking, theme parks, fairs, antiquing, shopping or museums we will gladly point you in the direction of any one of our areas numerous natural and cultural treasures.
The Indiana Dunes region is known for its beautiful beaches along Lake Michigan (the fifth largest fresh water lake in the world). Just beyond those beaches lie some of the world's largest sand dunes, created by glacial deposits, lake currents and wind. This is an area rich in history, ecological diversity, outdoor fun and family friendly small-town charm. When you are ready to take a break from swimming, playing on the beach and climbing the sand dunes there are many excellent restaurants, cafes, shops, museums and other inland charms to discover and enjoy.
My husband and I stayed with our two small children, and we had a wonderful time! The cottage itself is charming...modern, well-equipped, and clean with original woodwork and doors throughout. Wonderful open layout in the common areas, but it was easy to find areas of privacy as well. We've stayed in beachfront homes before, but this is literally the closest we've ever been. Walk right down the stairs from the deck to a private beach that has a ton of beach toys as well as paddle boards and kayaks to experience the lake. The location can't be beat. The neighborhood is private, and it's only a short walk down the beach to dunes and the state park. It's also a short drive to other attractions, grocery stores, etc. We enjoyed watching sunsets from the deck and seeing the Chicago skyline across the lake. We'd recommend it and would love to come back ourselves!
It was a perfect short getaway. Love the location. Best cottage on the lakeshore. Very accommodating and weather was perfect for us. Will definitely be back and already recommended it!
I rented this place for a relaxing bachelorette party getaway. The house is beautiful and equipped with everything you need to cook, grill and even make a bonfire. It is on a private beach so there is nice quiet space to relax on the sand. The owners and neighbors were all very friendly. We also rented the owner's studio apartment below this cottage for extra space and privacy. Everything was clean and well-maintained. It is just a short ride from the busy city of Chicago where we live, but felt like a true vacation. We would absolutely rent again!
We stayed at this lovely Porter beach front cottage for the weekend for a 50th birthday celebration! It was an absolutely fabulous weekend at the beach, by the dunes! Property managers very helpful. Very well equipped cottage, great view of the lake, comfortable beds, wonderfully clean! Highly recommend and we will definitely be back. Curt & Family
