Lovely home that is a short walk (<.7 miles) to beautiful sugar sand Sheridan Beach on Lake Michigan. Family home with two living rooms - ideal for multiple family dwelling. Quiet neighborhood with several parks only a few blocks away.

Great area for biking to Washington Park Zoo, Marina/Lighthouse, Blue Chip Casino, Lighthouse Outlet Mall, and historic Lake Shore Drive.

45-minute drive to Notre Dame.

The space
Split level home - great for larger groups.

Lower level - large living room with a connected tv; bedroom 1 with a queen bed and large closet, bedroom 2 has a bunk bed with a full on the bottom and twin on top and a closet, bedroom 3 is small with a full futon and dresser plus outside access through the garage. Additionally - the lower level has a full bath w/ tub and a separate laundry room with standard size washer, dryer, and a large utility tub - includes iron & ironing board as well as laundry detergent and fabric softener. Just like home.

Upper level you walk up to the great room with open floor space for the kitchen, dining, and living area as well as a walk-out to the patio. Kitchen contains what you'll need to cook any meal or snack. Dining table seats six comfortably, and the house comes with a high-chair or bumbo chair. The Living area has a large connected tv and picture window. Walk down the hall to the full bathroom (stand-up shower) as well as the master bedroom with a king size bed and large closet plus full bathroom (tub) the other bedroom is a queen bed with closet.

Exterior space is a well-shaded deck with another table for six plus a love seat and chair. Full-size gas grill and steps to the backyard where there is a fire pit (wood included) and Adirondack chairs around it. Find a stick in the wooded lot next door or bring your own for making s'mores.

*Note a Pack 'n Play is available.

The house provides the basics with soap, conditioner, and shampoo. There are bath towels, hand towels, and beach towels. The closet has a good selection of family games including Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly, and Memory to name three. Coffee & tea will be available. Tap water is good in Michigan City, but the fridge provides filtered water too.

Bonus space is having full access to the garage for anything but a car. Great to store your bikes which are recommended as well as any beach gear. Bring a wagon if you plan to go to the beach as it makes it easier to get your cooler and kids to the beach.

The neighborhood is quiet (although fireworks are frequent in the summer) and the street is even quieter. Neighborhood kids play in the street with their bikes and games. Family friendly neighborhood indeed as several parks to choose from are close by.

Where you’ll be

Michigan City, Indiana, United States

Lake Hills Neighborhood is close to everything - International Friendship Gardens (nice park and good for the family walk/play time), Zoo (perfect size to see everything in an hour), Marina (restaurant and snack-area), Casino (spa, restaurants, full gaming, and club), miles and miles of sandy beaches - and best part is you can bike to all of it.
