The floorplan is functional with large gathering space and comfortable, cozy nooks for managed solitude.

It is located on a quiet, tree-lined, cul-de-sac street and corner lot. Daily maid service available upon request.

We have hosted thousands of guests since 2008 for family reunions, friend’s getaways, special events, and couples and corporate retreats.

Unique and Historic Location

Our backyard and beach IS the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Only a sliver of national park and nature trail separate the Retreat from an amazing semi-private, sugar-sand beach with a 150ft sand bar and crystal clear water with no muck, rocks, or algae. This little slice of paradise contains one of the most diverse ecosystems in the entire national park system. It is world famous for the Karner Blue butterfly and has over 369 species of flowering plants and cacti. The first manned-glider ride, preceding the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk, occurred on historic Chanute Hill (200ft from our rear deck) in 1896 by Octave Chanute. The Aquatorium, a half-mile nature trail away, contains both the Chanute and Tuskegee Airmen Museums. Lake Street Beach, three blocks away, has a watercraft launch.

Full Kitchen

Perfect for guest chefs or families to make meals together, this full-service kitchen opens to the Great Room. The designer chose elegant cabinetry and Carrara Quartz counters. The island has a 60/40 double-bowl stainless steel sink, Grohe pull-out sprayer faucet, and seating for four guests. There is also a built-in quartz desk.

Kitchen has service for 10 and everything needed to make enticing meals and desserts. Kitchen offers major appliances including Fridge with auto-ice maker, 30in gas range, microhood, and dishwasher, all small appliances, cookware, bakeware, flatware, glassware, and supplies.

Great Room

This comfortable and inviting space features 16ft tall vaulted skylighted ceilings, table seating for eight, a caramel leather queen sleeper sofa, 50in digital cable HD TV with Wi-Fi Blu-Ray player, and closet full of extra linens, supplies, games, etc.

Outdoor Living Area

Overlooking the beautiful National Lakeshore, its unspoiled beaches, lush dune-scape, and the Chicago Skyline, the most coveted space is the 2nd story deck. With the same attention to detail, the outdoor deck contains a Weber gas grill and dining table


Two well-appointed queen bedrooms comprise the Guest House. One queen sofa beds and one high-rise, self-inflating/deflating Aerobed with built-in headboards is available along with all linens and bedding. Guests love the convenience and simplicity of putting it wherever and whenever. Each bedroom has been carefully crafted with guests in mind. Tasteful features include soft wool rugs over antique oak flooring and touches of leather and custom upholstery throughout. All bedrooms offer high thread-count linens, comforters and pillows, ceiling fans or stand fans, digital cable HD TVs with DVD players, ample closet space with hangers, full length mirrors, dressers, and nightstands with lamps.


One well-equipped marble tiled bathroom contains a jetted-tub and rain fall shower head, fluffy towels, bathmats, basic soaps, tissues, and hair dryers

Laundry Room

Stackable gas dryer and washer with ozonators require no hot water, bleach, detergent, or fabric softener. It cleans better by infusing another oxygen molecule to create super-charged wash water.


We offer Wi-Fi at speeds at 50 Mbps, three HD TVs, driveway parking for two tandem vehicles, and all supplies including soaps, paper towels, tissue, trash bags, etc. Guest House is cooled by three Mitsubishi AC wall units and heated by a Buderus radiant heat boiler with independent thermostat for customized comfort.

About Jim

As an Engineer and General Contractor, I have a passion for designing and building luxury smart homes. Being from a large family, I create spaces to accommodate large families and groups who want to celebrate, entertain, and relax.

My wife is an accomplished Interior Designer and Event Planner whose work has been published by Martha Stewart and Vogue Magazine and loves to furnish inviting spaces, ensuring that all the details and creature-comforts are attended to.

We are proud to call the Dream Retreat home and enjoy our private oasis on the beach, in the Hampton's of the Mid-West, where we can escape from it all.

We truly hope you like our home as much as we do.

Jim purchased this house in 2005

Why Jim chose Indiana

Dream Retreat was conceptualized in 2005 and meticulously designed, built, and furnished for the sole purpose of entertaining large groups and beachfront relaxation. We are in the memory-making business and have hosted thousands from all over.

Completed in 2008, Miller Beach Dream Retreat is 6000 sq.ft., comprising six half-levels (Level 1 through 6 with six steps between each) and an Attached Guest House. 2000 sq.ft. of outdoor living space are multi-tiered decks with amazing views and amenities. The floorplan is functional and flowing with large gathering spaces for entertaining on a grand scale as well as comfortable, cozy nooks for managed solitude. After staying in many properties around the globe, we have defined luxury vacation rental.

Miller Beach, Indiana is the closest beach side community to Chicago (40 minutes) and is often referred to as the Hampton's of the Mid-West. It is the epicenter of NW Indiana and a unique and growing artist community full of galleries, shopping, fine and casual dining, casinos, amusement parks, and miles of pristine beaches and trails. Everything is conveniently located within a 45 minute drive or train ride.

Views from the Dream Retreat to the North and East are pure nature: Lake Michigan and rolling dunes. To the Northwest, see the unmistakable Chicago skyline.

Follow the path to the semi-private, sugar-sand beach, wade onto the 150ft sand bar, swim in the crystal clear water. Enjoy no rocks, muck, or algae.

What makes this house unique

Unlike most beachfront rentals that are flanked on both sides by noisy, nosy neighbors and offer little to no privacy, the Dream Retreat was built to be private and secluded. We are located on a quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac street on a corner lot and 350 feet from our closest neighbor.

Our backyard and beach IS the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. This little slice of paradise contains one of the most diverse ecosystems in the entire national park system. It is world famous for the Karner Blue butterfly and has over 369 species of flowering plants and cacti.

The first manned-glider ride, preceding the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk, occurred on historic Chanute Hill (200ft from our rear deck) in 1896 by Octave Chanute. The Aquatorium, a half-mile walk on a nature trail, contains both the Chanute and Tuskegee Airmen Museums.

Our guest list is confidential, but includes A-list celebrities, professional sports stars, and noted journalists.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Met with a bunch of girls who all Scrapbook. Thats what we did from Thursday until Sunday in Nov. 2011. Beautiful home, beautiful location, beautiful times!! Would I do again? In a heartbeat!! Oh and did I mention the hot tub. This would be a great place for a small family reunion or maybe a New Years Eve party. Very lovely--hoping to make plans to do it again.

Dollar for Dollar, the BEST value on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

My family of six, wife and four kids, seek out vacation rentals throughout the Midwest and have never found a place that is so well-equipped for the price than this cottage! All our expectations were met and more. Wife cooked our favorite meals in the kitchen while I grilled on the Weber. Kids swam in the lake and made sand castles all day. Jim met us on site, gave a tour and binder of all his favorite haunts in town. We loved Flamingo pizza (25% off on Monday’s) the best. We highly recommend this place to anyone seeking comfort and value for your dollar. It is right on the national park and beach which is also very convenient to the casinos. We will be back again soon!

Charming cottage in the Dunes

  • 5 of 5

Five of my friends and I stayed here for a last minute trip to the beach from Chicago and fell in love with the place! It was very clean, had nice size TVs, fast wi-fi, convenient driveway parking, comfortable beds, and a Weber grill! Each room could control their AC temps too—this is important since we usually fight over the thermostat. The trail to the beach was nice and lake water was warm and clear for swimming. The kitchen had everything we needed including ice maker and blender. Booking and check-in were smooth. Being so close to Chicago, we will be coming back many times!

Perfect location and space for our getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed at the guest house as a last minute trip before kids go back to school and it was delightful! My best friend (for life), our spouses and two children had a really great time in Miller Beach. We are from the northwest suburbs of Chicago and usually drive much farther to rent a house in Michigan. We had no idea that such a gem even existed so close to us!

House was VERY clean and decorated beautifully. Beds were comfortable along with sheets and pillows. 3 tv’s made it easy for the adults to watch their shows and the kids to watch theirs. Kitchen had everthing we needed included ice machine, towels, blender, and toaster oven.

The best part was the BEACH! It was beautiful with soft sand (unlike so many other beaches in Michigan that we stayed at). We also felt very safe letting the kids swim in the water since there is a big shallow sand bar. We were also greeted at check-in and given a little tour by Jim. Thank you for offering your lovely home to us. We can now save about 4 hours round-trip (and gas money) by not having to drive all the way to Michigan!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear your comments Theresa! So many people overlook Miller Beach for other beach communities much farther away. The quality of the beach sand and water is one of our best assets, and we are truly blessed to be right on the National Lakeshore. It doesn't make sense to us either why people from Chicagoland would drive several hours further when Miller Beach is so convenient and beautiful We look forward to your next stay with us! Thank you.

Great space for our Summer family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Quality family time was the name of the game for my wife and four kids.  Jim met us on site and gave a little tour and binder with the wifi codes.  The kitchen had everything we needed and everyone participated in the meal preparation. We grilled out several nights.  Kids loved playing on the beach and swimming in the Lake.  Deck had a nice view of the lake and dunes.  The dining table was quite large and served as a game table after meals before bed.  We plan to come back next year.  Thank you Jim for your hospitality.

Loved this Guest House in the Dunes!

  • 5 of 5

The Guest House is darling! Stayed here for a late summer trip to the beach and absolutely fell in love with the place. Short walk on the trail to the gorgeous beach, surrounded by nature and secluded on a quiet street—my friends and I had THE best time. There were 6 of us and even though 1 couple stayed on the pullout couch, it was no big deal. The kitchen was great—had everything we needed and open to the living area, which was perfect, cause everyone always ends up there anyway right? Also had an amazing view of the dunes!! Who knew this was SO close to Chicago! Seriously—we will be coming back many, many more times.

Owner's Response: I completely agree. People always zoom right by Miller Beach to get stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic on there way to other less desirable destinations much further from Chicago with sub-standard beaches. For what? I don't know. The Guest House is LOADED with everything and is always priced right! Thank you very much for you stay and see you again in 6.5 months! Also, we are in the process of updating the furnishings in the Guest House as well. Jim

Great Family Staycation

  • 5 of 5

I decided to book a quick winter “stay-cation” for my family and was searching for a comfortable, relaxing place where we could also enjoy the outdoors. I found the Guest House and knew it would be the perfect getaway.

The owner responded to my inquiry immediately and thoroughly walked me through all of the amenities and highlights of the home. As it turns out, we were also allowed to bring our dog!

Our stay couldn’t have been better. The kids spent the days playing in the dunes while my husband and I caught up on our reading and even a nap or two!

The house is situated on a quiet cul de sac and was such a delightful respite from our everyday hectic lives in the city. We were able to cook all meals in the fully stocked, open kitchen (with everything from utensils/pots and pans to a toaster oven, coffee machine and a dishwasher) and enjoyed having the entire family in one cozy space. All five of us fit comfortably in the house, with one bedroom for my husband and I, a room for the girls and a pull out sofa in the main room for my son. The kids loved the big screen tv/dvd player, hubby was glued to overstuffed leather sofa and I adored having a washer/dryer. The indoor Jacuzzi tub was also a huge hit with eveyone!

The Guest House was truly a great value…more fun and in the end more cost effective than a hotel! We will be back again, hopefully when it is warmer!
