We are one of the closest rentals to the Dunes State park and across the street from the National Lakeshore! Conveniently located between the State Park beach and the Dunes Visitor Center, which is close enough to walk to. You can also walk to the train station for easy access to Chicago. The National Lakeshore forest is across the street, so walk out the door to start your hike. Our place is great for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.

Tara’s space was great and exactly as promised. You couldn’t be closer to Indiana Dunes park without actually being in it. The access to the parks and trails was a big plus. We would definitely stay here again.
