About Laura LeCoque
We are a family of 4 and purchased our cottage in 1999. We raised our young boys there in the summer and enjoyed many lazy days collecting sea glass, swimming and playing with our many beach toys (stand up paddle, kayak, bean bag) while visiting with friends and family. Our boys our grown now and we do not have the opportunity to use our house as often as we would like.

A lovely long weekend with lots of family and pets
The home was exactly as described, and just over the dune was a beautiful beach which at this time of year was almost deserted.
It was very comfortable for a three generation get together. The kitchen was functional with a surprising amount of pantry goods for our use. (Spices, coffee filters, etc.) Coolers and beach toys including a paddle board! There is a zoo nearby that the grand children really enjoyed on a chilly day. My husband had left some items of clothing which were packed up and sent back to us right away. My entire security deposit was refunded, which is always a nice feeling. My daughter had stayed here with friends two years before and recommended this place. I’m glad she did and I will certainly recommend it in the future. We are planning to return!
Great Week end retreat!
Well maintained lake house w/ yard & all amenities needed..
Lovely summer vacation
We truly enjoyed our vacation in Long Beach. The house is very big. It has all of things you need! And it is spotless! There are ample chairs and toys for the beach. Everything was wonderful.
Thank you for the positive review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay.
Amazing house and location! Perfect beachfront property close to Michigan City restaurants and bars.
Awesome Memorial Day weekend visit at this house. Would rent again 10 times out of 10!
Great Place - views / house
House was clean and ready on time. Right on the water with great communal space and views. Everything we needed for the weekend was provided as well. Would recommend this property to others. Owner was great as well - responsive and helpful.
had a great time ..
A must do if you like ice cream is to visit "Oinks" in New Buffalo. If you like shopping there is plenty of upscale stores at the outlet mall which is a couple of miles away. There are 2 casinos within a few miles radius along with several fine golf courses and a tennis courts in the vicinity. This area is a hidden gem and only 1.5 hours drive from Chicago - so if you need to get away from the big city hustle-bustle or drive into the city for museums and cultural events - easy to do.
Additional information about rental rates
We do collect a $500 Refundable Damage Deposit due at booking. It is refunded in 7 days if there are no problems. This is in addition to the $200 cleaning fee that is stated in the rental agreement. If the house is left in a foul, disastrous state these funds will be used for the cost of additional cleaning. This includes exceeding the 10 person guest limit, disasters on the rug, all dishes used and left dirty in the kitchen covering counters, garbage left in the yard or house, vomit in any part of the house, ECT. It is unfortunate that this needs to be included but there have been a few renters that have taken advantage of our home and left our family and cleaning crew disgusted. This is my home and it should be treated as such.
