About Gigi Carroll
I was born on Long Island, NY and spent many a summer on the North Shore of the island, including Montauk Point. Imagine my joy when I found the Hamptons of the Midwest just 75 minutes from Chicago! Beautiful beaches. Great dining. Romantic evenings. Long sunsets. Peace. Quiet. Perfection. And so began the story of creating the most amazing storybook cottage and the ideal place to enjoy the easy breezy life Harbor Country offers. I am thrilled to offer you that same experience.
Gigi Carroll purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Gigi Carroll chose Lakeside
To me the house is the intersection of all the places I love. . . a little bit of New Orleans, Key West, and Long Island. The front porch surrounded by lush greenery and flowers is reminiscent of a Tennessee Williams play. And that is what drew me here first. . That moody front porch I spotted from the road. Serendipitously, It happened to be for sale. That experience inspired the name: Serendipity's Garden and sealed the decision to buy it.To me it was the quintessential summer cottage. At the time, the property contained two small vintage cottages. I joined them a year later, updated ..well everything, and added a large kitchen/family room addition.
What makes this Cottage unique
I love everything about this house. The hydrangeas that greet your when you drive up. .the rooms filled with light that make you wonder if you are inside or out. . . .the cathedral beamed ceilings in almost every room that provide the most airy experience. The private deck that is the most awesome room in the house. I am truly a lover of beautiful things. And wanted a place the housed them all. I hope my home reflects that. Oh and did I mention how awesome it is to watch a thunderstorm roll in from the beach?? The best entertainment ever:)

It’s a lovely little getaway spot! Beautifully decorated and has everything you need. Very cozy and comfy. Just a short walk to Lake Michigan and a short drive to many wineries and breweries! We really enjoyed our time there!
Thanks so much Dana! I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit. Hope to have you back again when you can take in the beach and summer surroundings!
This house is beautiful!
I booked this house for a girls trip and everything was perfect for it! The house had everything we needed and fit 8 of us well. The house is well kept and it is close to all different kinds of things to do. We visited in Feb and even with it being winter we found plenty to see and do.
Wish we could stay longer
The cottage was clean, warm and had more than enough space for the four of us. We enjoyed the breweries and restaurants near by. We'd love to come back in the summer.
Well Appointed Cottage with Lake Access
We found the cottage to be well equipped and close to the lake. The cottage itself was decorated beautifully and had everything we needed from firewood to a canister of coffee if we needed it. There were plenty of towels and linens. Thanks for a great stay!
Excellent cottage and very cozy.
Great place to stay!!!
We had a wonderful trip to Michigan. The house was perfect for our group of 6.
Situated between New Buffalo, Sawyer and Three Oaks, the cottage is perfectly located in Harbor Country. Just 2 short blocks to Lake Michigan, the neighborhood offers the best of beaching, hiking, biking, dining and shopping. There are also a host of vineyards and micro-breweries within the area.
