Stunning Lakefront Home & Guest House w/ Private Pool, Beach, Terraces & Views!

Nestled in the rolling dunes of Michiana with incredible views of Lake Michigan at every turn, this waterfront home is sure to please with its artful blend of classic, vintage, and contemporary style. This lakefront property includes both a five-bedroom main house and a one-bedroom guest house, creating an ideal space for an extended family vacation or a reunion with friends. You'll have access to beautiful outdoor entertainment areas that include a heated swimming pool in a spacious courtyard with wide-plank decking, an expansive screened-in porch, multiple terraced stone patios with views that can reach all the way to the Chicago skyline, and access to a private beach down a flight of stairs.

Pass through a grand entryway to enter the main house, where you'll be greeted by a spacious custom kitchen with vintage-style cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances, reclaimed architectural elements, a center island with seating for four, and a high-top breakfast bar with seating for three. Adjoining the kitchen is an oversize dining area with a large wood table that seats up to 12 guests, plus a serving bar featuring an under-counter wine fridge and an additional beverage fridge. The generous living space invites you to relax by the marble gas-start fireplace and enjoy the stunning lake view through wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows. Off the entryway is a separate wing with a kitchenette, a large living area with plenty of seating around a flatscreen TV, and a king bedroom with an en suite bathroom that features a gorgeous stone step-in shower. A powder room, laundry room, and outdoor shower are also on the main floor.

Upstairs, you'll find three bedrooms, including the luxurious primary suite with a king bed, an en suite bathroom that includes a step-in shower and free-standing oval tub, and a balcony where you are able to bask in the fresh breeze of Lake Michigan. A second bedroom hosts a king bed, a beautiful gas fireplace, and a walk-out deck with expansive lake views. This bedroom shares a hall bathroom with the third bedroom. It hosts two sets of twin bunks, a twin trundle bed, and a queen bed - a perfect space for children to play games, color, or read one of the many children's books located in the adjacent seating area.

The lower level has an extra family media room with a huge sectional sofa and a mounted flatscreen TV, a bedroom with a queen bed, a full bathroom with a walk-in shower, plus a home gym and foosball table. You'll also have a gas-start wood-burning fireplace in the living room and a gas firepit at the lakeside lounge area.

We like this house a lot, having stayed in it for a week about 4 of the last five summers. We hope we can reserve it again next year.

The house is spacious and beautifully decorated. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. The kitchen was also large with everything needed to prepare meals and snacks. Our family loved the heated swimming pool and the amazing views of Lake Michigan.

We loved everything almost about this house! The pictures don't do it justice! We had so much space for our extended family, great kids room setup, the pool was warm and bigger than expected, and you can get sun at all times of the day on the deck and overlook. We were surprised by the huge selection of books, games, tons of fridge space, 2 dishwashers, it was great for a large group! Our favorite was the fire pit overlooking the water at sunset, the views could NOT be beat!

Our only issue was with Vacasa directly; the Wifi network and password were incorrect for checkin, which was an issue mainly because there is no cell service, so without the Wifi it was a safety issue to not be able to make calls, or work remotely. After talking with Vacasa call center several times over several days, finally found one person who was very helpful. With her help the local office finally called after 4 days. Honestly if they had just gotten in contact it could have been resolved in 3 minutes; For anyone renting, try all the networks available with the password given, one should work eventually. If you cannot find the router to restart, it's hidden in a cabinet in the bedroom off the back of the house.

Outside of that, not a single complaint for the house. We would absolutely love to return next year!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Kristin. We are glad that overall you enjoyed your stay. We sincerely apologize for the WiFi issues and any confusion getting this resolved immediately. We have taken steps to make sure this doesn't happen again. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The MIchiana Beach House was AMAZING. So spacious, so beautifully decorated, so well appointed! The views were breathtaking - that back porch was our favorite area of the whole property. Having the beach just down the steps was spectacular. The pool was perfectly warmed. Even with all the families we had staying there - 9 adults and 6 kids - it never felt crowded. This house is an absolute gem. The Grand Beach location was fantastic as well.
