    I brought my family to the Indiana Dunes for the first time, unsure of what to expect from the parks or this vacation home rental. Everything exceeded our expectations. The images don't do the property justice. The new epoxy finish on the flooring felt like walking on clouds of marble. It brightened up the interior and was cool on the feet, which was much appreciated in the 80+ degree weather. My coonhound loved laying on the cool flooring too.

    Despite being almost at maximum occupancy, we had plenty of linens, toiletries, dishes, cookware, and utensils. The host was very responsive to my texts. The fenced-in backyard was a huge plus since I brought my dog. The TV in the living room had all the apps for viewing. The bathrooms were spacious, and the property was spotless at check-in. My family and I could not have asked for a better experience at a vacation home rental.

  • Wonderful stay


    The house was very comfortable. It was large enough that everybody could have their privacy and enough room for us all to come together. The bathrooms are large and the linens were nice. We would definitely rent the house again if we ever needed to.

    The house was perfect! Really nice home and the extra touches of hospitality were an extra bonus! If we need a house near Chicago again- we will definitely return!

  • Family wedding and visit old hometown


    The property was just as it is pictured. The host is amazing and very helpful. We walked in-the lights were on, snacks and fruit on the counter to enjoy, plus k-cups and cold water in frig! We stayed close to where my mom (86 years old) grew up. the blessing of family stories was a highlight. Then a family wedding by in Chicago. Thanks for a lovely place to stay. Walking around the neighborhood or to the grocery store made this a convenient location.
