The space
"Lots of love and history has been put into this charming rental cottage named Serendipity, as it is one of the original Sheridan Beach homes built back in 1942 that has been completely renovated and upgraded with top notch materials and a loft upstairs added on to create more space and (when the trees are bare) even a slight view of Lake Michigan!! All the thoughtful touches inside and out, the warmth and the cleanliness are what make for a comfortable place for all guests to relax and de-stress!
Start out the day soaking in the morning sun's energy on our front porch chairs with a cup of coffee made fresh from the provided house coffee bar, or retreat to the back porch (off the master bedroom), to take in some calming meditation or yoga while listening to the distant sounds of the waves from Lake Michigan nearby.
Lots of comfy, quiet places to get lost in your favorite book or find one from the vast collection that fills the shelves in the living room. Curl up on the couch, in the master bedroom or upstairs in the loft to enjoy movies or streaming from your Netflix or Amazon accounts on the mounted, streaming TVs!
Ready to venture out? Go for a scenic bike ride (bikes provided) or a peaceful, nature walk down to the serene lakefront to collect pretty beach stones, undiscovered sea glass and driftwood... OR if weather is warm, pack a picnic lunch, the cooler on wheels (1 provided),grab the house beach wagon, fill it with beach towels, chairs and sand toys-(all provided), to take a short 5-10 minute stroll down to spend a lazy day at the best beach stops in Michigan City!
Come back just in time (but not too soon!) to wash off the sand and prepare your evening meal in the fully-stocked kitchen... OR, if short on time from your lazy day at the beach, throw some hot dogs or burgers on the convenient gas grill while the kids play in the fully-fenced backyard.
Top off the day relaxing again, favorite beverage in hand, sharing stories around the backyard fire pit, while the kids make smores for dessert!

Where you’ll be

Michigan City, Indiana, United States

Very friendly neighborhood with nice mix of long term resident locals and short term visitors. Super-convenient, central location to most everything unique about MC with walking distance or bike ride to a breakfast & lunch cafe/ restaurants/bars, the Blue Chip Casino, the Washington Park Zoo, couple of other parks, historic 1858 Michigan City Lighthouse and Pier, Kid's Splash Park, the marina and of course, the beautiful Sheridan Beach! Lots to do in a short drive by car whether in the mood for indoor or outdoor adventures!
Lovers of shopping will go crazy at the Michigan City Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets with 100 stores!! Or, for more unique finds, check out the really fun shops down in the Uptown Arts District on Franklin Street or visit the lovely Harbor Country area shops along the Michigan waterfront with just 10 minutes to the border!
Lovers of outdoor adventures can check out the different Harbor Country guided boat tours just minutes down the road from our home past Washington Park for fishing, sunset dinner cruising or water sports recreation. Another nearby outdoor treasure is the Indiana Dunes State Park and Mt. Baldy to hike, climb and explore the cherished and protected natural sand dunes, go swimming, etc...along with Warren Dunes State Park shortly over the border in Michigan, which happens to be one of their state's most popular state parks.
Hungry yet? Well, there's a fabulous variety of more casual and beach-friendly, more upscale/special event celebration, or more "in- between" dining options in the local restaurant/cafe and bar scene of our area depending on your mood or the occasion. Lots of choices such as Italian, Mexican, American, Greek, Chinese, Polish, Irish, Jamaican, and local bar food favorites as well! You can try something different every night! Dune Billie's Breakfast & Lunch Cafe and Cool Runnings Jamaican Restaurant are both within walking distance of our home, with Shoreline Brewery and Restaurant, Bridges Waterside Grille, FiddleHead, Leed's Public House, Galveston's Steak House, Bartlett's Fish Camp, the new Zorn Brew Works Co., Matey's, Scartozzi's Trattoria, Miller's Pizza AND MORE all within a short drive! You will never run out of options and many can do curbside pickup or delivery options, too!!
Uber and Lyft both run 24 hours/7 days/week in Michigan City (depending on drivers available) which would be affordable fun to a Shady Creek Winery trip with your girlfriends, or a Blue Chip Casino trip with the guys ( Four Winds Casino is not that far either if your luck runs out at Blue Chip!)- AND don't forget that the windy city of Chicago is also only an hour drive by car, Uber or Lyft or a hour and a half relaxing South Shore train ride away!
The fun and adventures may never end, but this home will always welcome you back to relax your mind and rest your tired feet!
