About Kerry Brown

The owners are both in the entertainment industry and live in LA. He spent many years in Chicago, and his family owned the home next door. When presented with the opportunity to buy The Hideout for themselves, they jumped at the opportunity. They now own both homes and are now working on completely rehabbing the home next door (The Lookout- stay tuned...) to offer the opportunity for large groups to be able to stay close together.

Kerry Brown purchased this house in 2010

Why Kerry Brown chose Michigan City

The homeowners love the feeling of stepping back in time when they come back. Enjoying summer like they did in their childhood when the days lasted forever and every day offered new, magical adventures...

Homemade root beer at Carlson's, the intimate Michigan City Zoo, building the ultimate sand castle, the lighthouse framing Chicago's skyline during beautiful sunsets, plus endless new opportunities!

Great summer weekend!

  • 4 of 5

The property itself is really great. We had 6 adults and a baby and felt there was lots of room. Great kitchen, with a large table that we used for eating and playing board games! Plenty of wide open spaces with a really large outdoor deck in the front and side of the house with a hot tub. Only problem was that the hot tub didn't really work. Besides that, everything was great! Perfect location with a short walk to the beach. Loved it and can't wait to go back!

Great place to relax & get away!

  • 5 of 5

Quaint and cute. Lots of light and room. Very comfortable and clean. Also well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped. All bedrooms were comfortable and clean. Lots of bath and beach towels. Great deck for sitting, eating and relaxing. Close to the beach. We would highly recommend for a family getaway.

Good location.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your house. We loved the Jacuzzi and the big deck. It was nice to be able to walk to the beach and the parks. The only complaint I have is with the TV reception. The satellite dish was almost buried in weeds.

Great Place to Make Memories❤️

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our full week! This darling house was perfect for us, a family of 10, teenagers , parents, and grandparents. The huge deck was terrific for visiting, eating from the grill, and using the hot tub! Inside there were different settings where we could visit- the kitchen/dining room, tv room, porch with cozy couch, and close by, an area for six or so to chat by the dining room. The bedrooms were away from the first floor living area, perfect! Highly recommend !!! Just be sure everyone can navigate lots of stairs going in. Thx for a fun week!!

10 Family Together

  • 4 of 5

Another wonderful year spent at the Hide Out. Thanks so much for all the wonderful memories. We are ages 71 to 1 years old. The house was wonderful as always. The hike to the beach isn't so bad. One block and up a small dune to the beach for a 71 year old. This is our second year and the family loves it. Plenty of parking, kitchen is stocked, washer and dryer are wonderful. The hot tub is a plus. Played several games and ate out on the giant patio. The home is very clean and comfortable for all of us. The fireworks on the 4th were awesome, we could see them from the patio. The Zoo is in walking distance our little ones and even the high school grandchildren had fun. Thanks again for a wonderful 10 days!

A good deal for a wonderful holiday weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 11 people to stay at the property during the Memorial Day weekend. The house locates just one block from the beach and makes it very easy to access the beach. There are enough parking spaces on the roadside and on the little hill despite there's no dedicated garage to the property. We never found parking a problem. The house itself is not new but is maintained well. Electric, water and gas is available as expected. To accommodate 11 or 12 people, a entertainment room has to be used. Two of us had to sleep on a sofa bed. It was not the most comfortable thing but overall the house is big enough for all of us.

I was personally satisfied with the property considered how much we paid for it. We spent a wonderful weekend in the house and i would certainly recommend the place to my friend, with all the above points mentioned.
