About the property

White sand Beach with 180 views of lake--7 bdrms and decks for everyone

Fall rentals available. Beach is still gorgeous and also even more private. Enjoy beautiful white sand beach, great outlet shopping or the casino while staying in our Arts and Crafts home perched on a dune with a 180 degree view of the lake. Hang out at the beach just across the street and down the path in summer and in winter, listen to the noises of the lake and enjoy the lake views while sipping wine in warmth and comfort. During the off season, we rent the whole house, or the bottom two floors that sleep 13. Rates are in additional notes in rate section.

We built this 6/7 bedroom Arts and Crafts home with interior woodwork by Michigan artist, an imported tile surround on wood burning fireplace, granite counter tops and large soaking tub in 1999.

The beach is clean white sand used only by the few families living on Lake Shore Drive. This is a residential area and you won't have party houses next door (look for houses from Stop 1-7 if you are coming to party into the night). Enjoy the large deck overlooking the beach and the sunset and the sound of the waves with a glass of wine.

The bed is high end with plush towels and fine linens. The top floor has only the master bedroom and bath a second room on the second floor with a washer and dryer and a queen size futon. THe rest of the bedrooms are below so this is a prize space for being a bit off from the pack. Tall pines line the back of the property with woods across on the other side of the street. Our parking is off the back of the house so don’t worry about having to walk up all the front steps with your things. We have 140 gallons of hot water so you'll never run out. Our cleaners are wonderful. You will feel comfortable here the moment you walk in.

Summer, fall or spring-- it doesn't get better than boy the lake and whether you're enjoying the fall foliage, the summer wild flower or the new spring shoots, the hiking is just outside your door. The sun setting over the lake is visible from most of the rooms in this beach home built in 1999. Come in August for blueberry picking and freeze what you can't eat.

People often think we are in Beach Walk. We are 3/10 of a mile down the beach in the less densely populated area. We do not have a pool. If you are looking for a more private, residential area with a beach shared only by a few families and a home right on Lake Shore Drive with a terrific view then we will be a better fit. Check our reviews.

Take a trip to the casino or catch the bargains at a great outlet mall--both minutes away by car. Run down the steep dune behind the house for a great one and a half hour walk through woods and dune land. Bike down the lake front bike path or to nearby New Buffalo, Michigan or the Indiana National Lake Shore reserve just ten minutes away. Play Ping pong on the back deck or watch the kids playing on the swings.

Great restaurants in town and in nearby Michigan along with great antiquing in Harbort County Michigan. 2 large gas grill on decks and full. Take a day trip to Chicago by convenient train or car and enjoy fine dining and theater- just one hour travel time and come back home to the lake. Enjoy your vacation in comfort.

There is a very nice grocery called Al's -head about two miles east of the house to STOP 22, turn right and follow the road to the light. Al's is to your right on Rte 12 just before the light.

If you go up here, there are marvelous views and a great run down the sand dune to a path that winds through a prairie, into woods and finally out onto a street in about 1.5 miles. We usually walk back on the beach. Take the path to the left when your back is to the dune for the long walk. The Indiana Dunes National LakeShore is not far and there are many lovely trails many ending up at the lake nearby.
