“Perfect! Loved, loved, loved this space! Beats a hotel any day. They thought of everything. Plenty of towels, linens, blankets, etc. Even had travel size amenities if you needed them (soap, floss, etc). Lots of books to read, games to play (we didn't need them but if you did, had choices). Loved the fire pit and sitting outside to relax in the evenings after an all day adventure. It's located close to everything (for our purposes anyway, the Indiana Dunes National Park). Only about 1.5 miles from the park and close to downtown, restaurants, etc. Ed and Deb were very gracious, kind folks with good local tips. Seriously, stay here. You will not be disappointed.”
Nestled at the bottom tip of Lake Michigan’s artsy beach community in Porter, IN, this spacious retreat is only minutes from the breathless Indiana Dunes and ground transportation to bustling downtown Chicago. This rental features a private entrance that leads to a newly renovated upstairs living area, kitchen, and dining space. Sleeping arrangements include a private queen bedroom and optional queen sleeper sofa to accommodate 4 guests, and custom bath with walk-in shower that is sure to spoil.
“After our Europe honeymoon was canceled due to COVID-19, my wife and I had a fabulous time at Patty's adorable carriage house! The space was welcoming, cozy, yet with plenty of room! The large shower and towel warmer was an amazing touch! The bed was firm and comfortable, and the kitchen and living space was a great area to relax and cook stay-home meals. Our hosts were even kind enough to give us a card and a few extra touches to make us feel so blessed during our honeymoon. We were very close to Porter Beach and several other non-paid entrance beaches. It was also close enough for us to take day trips to both Chicago and Hollan, Michigan. Overall, we truly adored our time at the carriage house and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely time away from home!”
Stunning modern home overlooks private sand dunes on 5 wooded acres just a mile away from beautiful Lake Michigan beaches and surrounded by the Indiana Dunes National Park. Relax in our updated open-concept unique home nestled in the dunes. Enjoy the trails in the backyard, the friendly community, and local attractions near by. Just an hour to Chicago by car or the South Shore train is 1/2 mile from the house, with easy rides to Chicago and South Bend.
“Beautiful home, exceptionally kid-friendly, in the woods with a very nice sand dune that has a view; gorgeous rain shower with view of the woods. Lots of kids’ toys, books, and games for any age. They also had beach toys, chairs and umbrellas, various kinds of baby/toddler beds available, fully outfitted kitchen with everything you could need. The beaches are gorgeous and we were even able to swim in late May/early June as there is a sandbar that makes the water a bit warmer near the shore. Host was very helpful and had local recommendations that we found very useful. Fast internet and very lovely office-like room upstairs—great for working remotely while traveling. Note that the beach is about 3 miles away and not really close enough to walk; in general, there are no sidewalks and you’d need to drive a short distance to get to anything (could be for someone hoping to come from the city without a car). We had a fantastic trip! This could be a great getaway either for a couple or for a family of any size; house is very well set up for kids of all ages (we had our toddler, but I imagine older kids/teens would have a great time here also).”
