The park connects to Lake Michigan and beach where you will discover photographic sunsets, view of Chicago skyline across the lake, and wild natural sand dunes. While in the park, you might want to checkout the national registered Aquatorium Bathhouse, and the Marquette Park Pavilion designed by George Maher with Prairie School architecture. b) Or TURN RIGHT, and turn right again at the corner to cross the bridge to Lake Street Beach. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS (DRIVE): West Beach and hiking trail (5-10 mins). Mt Baldy (25 mins). Lighthouse Outlets In Michigan City (30 mins). Billy Boy's Blueberry Farm (35 mins). Recommend driving on route 12 instead of highway. It is especially scenic in spring and autumn, and there are points of interest along the way. Numerous local breweries in the area. Shoreline Brewery & Restaurant is next to the outlets. Guest(s) will be asked to email a picture ID directly to the host (in addition to airbnb standard verifications) before we send house entry instructions. Full access to the entire first floor (ground level) interior of the house, and all exterior spaces, such as wood deck and driveway for parking. You will need a car around here.

For a short-term rental of a week or less, host does not stay there during your stay. There will be no other people at the cottage during your stay. You will have a complete privacy; however, you will have an access to only the guest suite on 1st floor. The upper floors will be locked.
