Réponse du propriétaire: Hi Jim: Thank you for staying with us and your review! Yes, our Guesthouse is directly on the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore (soon to be America's 60th National Park!) and a short walk, on Octave Chanute Trail, to the sugar-sand beach. Many of our guests enjoy staying year-round and especially mid-week. The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore/Park and beach are truly magical in all four seasons! We hope to see you again soon! Hillary

Excellent Location, Views, Value for Mom’s 60th!

  • 5 de 5

We loved staying in this charming Dream Guesthouse to celebrate my Mom’s 60th birthday and the town of Miller Beach was quaint and fun.  It was the perfect spot for the 7 of us total, 4 adults and 3 kids, from Dayton OH.  We have stayed at several other beach rentals and this one was well worth the price for what you get!  It was very clean and sunny and offered everything we needed.  The kitchen was perfect, and outdoor grill was nice (even in Winter).  We enjoyed the large TVs and watched old movies on Netflix while the kids played Xbox in the other room.  Beds were very comfortable and linens and towels were good quality.  Mom loved the jacuzzi bathtub too. 

The views from the deck of the dunes and lake were wonderful and we even saw 2 deer!  We spent several hours hiking through the dunes and on the beautiful beach.  It was truly magical!  Even though it was Winter, the beach was very pretty and the Chicago Skyline was breathtaking! 

We especially loved dining at the fancy Miller Bakery Café.  Mom had roasted duck and loved it.  We also had good pizza at Flamingos one afternoon.  The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful with virtually no traffic since it’s a no outlet street, we didn’t have to worry about the kids and traffic. 

Everything was set up perfectly for our arrival.  We got a little tour and a binder full of Jim’s family’s favorite trails, places to see, and other info.

Thank you very much Jim for making our Mom’s birthday truly memorable!

Réponse du propriétaire: Thank you Christa for choosing to celebrate Mom's 60th with us! I am honored. We've hosted several milestone birthdays all the way up to 105 years old at the Dream Retreat, along with anniversaries, and small weddings. I am glad that you saw the two deer from the deck. My daughter named them Mickey and Minnie and always points them out when they come by to feed in the nearby mulberry patch. Your family is certainly welcome back anytime. Very Truly Yours, Jim

Guest House not same as Main House, Miller Beach quite different from "the Hamptons"

  • 2 de 5

Although comfortable, clean, and well-equipped, and close to a good hiking trail and the dunes, the "guest house" for this rental lacks many of the key amenities that make the larger property seem attractive. There is virtually no view from the guest house (the guest house is over a garage facing a suburban street, rather than the dunes or the lake) and has no real deck. Given that we were paying a rate appropriate for a lakefront home with a view, this was disappointing to us. Miller Beach is also a very industrial part of the Indiana lakefront in a part of Gary that has seen better days, so be aware of that. (We have stayed at other rentals in Indiana in towns such as Porter Beach, where you also see the power plants and the steel mills, but they are much further away so the setting is quite different).

Can't comment on the main home, which seemed nice from the outside, but for smaller groups renting only the guest house just be aware of what you are getting, and not getting, for the rate. If you know the area and like it, and rent the full house, could be a good option. But this was not an appealing property overall for our interest in a lakefront rental with a nice view for 2 people.

Réponse du propriétaire: Leigh: Thank you for staying in our Attached Guest House and, ugh, for ruining our perfect 5-star Rating (11 other very satisfied guests all gave 5 stars!). I hope your negative comments don’t have anything to do with you getting the stomach flu during your stay with us. ;) While we appreciate you taking the time to write, you’ve made incorrect statements that must be addressed. 1. In our correspondences and looking at MillerBeachDreamRetreat.com, it is crystal clear that, to some guests, the attractive amenities offered in the Dream Retreat Main House are superior to those of the Attached Guesthouse. Our Guesthouse renters are either: a. Main House renters needing additional space, b. smaller families/groups looking for a wonderful beach getaway, or c. those on a tight budget. 2. Agreed, the Guesthouse is clean, comfortable, right on the Dunes National Lakeshore, close to amazing trails and VERY well-equipped. However, it does not offer ALL of the amenities of the Main House, nor do we advertise that. 3. The Guesthouse is priced right and offers considerable value for those seeking a clean, well-appointed, safe, and comfortable beach house. We continually do extensive market research to ensure this and we have served hundreds of satisfied guests from all over the country. 4. The Private Deck DOES have amazing views of the IN Dunes National Lakeshore and Lake Michigan (see website photos), Weber gas grill, and a dining table that seats four. 5. Miller Beach is a unique Artist community, 12 miles from Gary, full of quaint shops, galleries, eateries, economic development, and an award-winning brewery and restaurant. It is the closest beach-side community to Chicago (40min) and the Southern-most tip of Lake Michigan with a large and growing sand bar. 6. Further, Miller Beach is the FARTHEST away from the industrial plants to the East. In fact, the beach you mentioned staying at is only 11 miles from the giant cooling tower whereas Miller Beach is over 30 miles away. The quality of the sugar-sand beach, the clear waters, and being a direct part of the IN Dunes National Lakeshore, makes Miller Beach a far superior location. We invite you back anytime to explore Miller Beach’s true beauty. Very Truly Yours, Jim

Dollar for Dollar, the BEST value on Lake Michigan

  • 5 de 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 de 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!

Réponse du propriétaire: Thank you for staying with us Eric. Not many people realize just how close we are to Chicago. My wife commutes there everyday. I am glad your last minute getaway was a success. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

Perfect location and space for our getaway!

  • 5 de 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!

Réponse du propriétaire: 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.
