Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This charming lakefront cottage is located on three hundred feet of private beach. The gradual sandy beach is excellent for swimming and the sunsets from the south shore of Lake Michigan are incredible.

Porter Beach is a small beach community located on the borders of the Indiana Dunes State Park and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and just one hour from downtown Chicago. The beautiful beach stretches in either direction for miles and within minutes you can get to wonderful nature trails, excellent restaurants, quaint shops and many interesting cultural attractions.

The trails vary in length and difficulty but are all wonderful for both hiking and cross country skiing. There are also some excellent sledding hills nearby. Other close by sights include historic Chelberg Farm, Westchester Township History Museum, Zao Island Amusement Park, Taltree Arboretum, Calumet Bike Trail, Imagination Glen with a BMX race track and a 10 mile Outback Mountain Bike Trail and Broken Wagon Bison Farm and many more wonderful places to explore and activities to delight.

Beautiful view, the beach is a few steps away. The Water is crystal clear, no worries about sharks or jelly fish. Defiantly will be returning.

Spotless property with a very impressive view.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin exceeded all my expectations. A stunning view of Lake Michigan. Just steps from the water. The property was clean and well maintained. Susan met us when we got there and walked us down to the cabin showed us around and made sure we were comfortable I look forward to renting this cabin again. I just can’t get over the view. 🤙

Peaceful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is very nice, has everything and is right on the beach. The view is breathtaking and even though it was really really cold outside we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Ericka, one of the owner, helped us to carry things and walked us to the cottage when we arrived. She was very helpful and made sure we were settled.

If anyone is looking for a great gateway give it a try.

Great owner. Amazing view. Extremely clean.

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this place to stay for a great getaway. Only thing can be improved is a bed frame making some squeeking noises even with a minimum movements.

Great place for the money

  • 5 of 5

Clean, nice location, nice owners. Nothing fancy but good price and location with pretty views. Enjoyed hiking trails in park, beach walks and using the free kayaks.
