Enjoy nightly hot tub soaks and bon fires at our cozy woodland retreat! Beer and wine taste by day and enjoy the leaves changing in Michigan or watch the big game and we'll have the wood fired hot tub stoked for you when you return. 

One block from Lake Michigan (we’re on the Michigan side of Michigan City, IN) and a short drive to Michigan wine country!! Come enjoy the most luxurious "camping" experience of your life in our tiny guest cabin. We've packed the space with every possible comfort- a memory foam king sized bed with memory foam egg crate, 800 thread count 100% cotton sheets, excellent WiFi, heating and air conditioning, a wood fired cedar hot tub, bikes, kayaks, and a lovely outdoor shower. 

It includes a fully stocked kitchenette (no stove or range) with a microwave, Keurig coffee maker and on demand water. We supply all bedding, towels and robes for shower and hot tub, and beach towels. We also supply high end shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There is a Weber grill for cooking and cute outdoor seating and fire pit for enjoying coffee, cocktails and meals. 

The rental includes two bikes and two kayaks (with signed waiver) for exploring the lake and nearby rivers. We are a block from beautiful Shoreland Hills beach on Lake Michigan and have beach chairs, towels, beach toys and beach bags for your use! There are countless parks, rivers and trail systems within an hour of us including the famous Indiana Dunes. In the summer, we are a three minute drive from delicious U-Pick blueberries and Shady Creek Winery and Burn ‘Em Brewing are a 3 minute drive and are open year round. We are a three minute drive into Michigan and 20 minutes to wine country, apple and berry picking. The Blue Chip Casino and Lighthouse Outlet Mall are popular indoor activities and are both ten minutes away. We are 40 minutes from South Bend, so are an easy drive for Notre Dame fans!

We have a beautiful cedar wood fired soaking tub for your use. Please let us know if you want to use it BEFORE you arrive as it requires some prep for use! If we won't be around to start the tub, we will leave detailed directions for you to fire it up. Also please be aware that we only fire it up if it's going to drop below 65 degrees at some point during your stay. 

We also have a fire pit and have wood available!

There is no bathroom in the little cabin but you will have access to our outdoor shower in the summer and newly remodeled indoor shower, sink and toilet in the main house year round. 

The King sized bed is in the loft so requires climbing a ladder to access and requires guests to duck to climb in but is extremely comfortable. If you have sensitive feet we recommend bringing slippers or sandals for climbing the ladder.

We are artists who work from home and love to host and meet new people!

Pets are not allowed due to allergies. 

While we love children, the space isn't suited for small kiddos. The loft is about 6'5" high and doesn't have a safety railing and the main area is too small for extra sleeping or spreading out to play. 

We ask for quiet after 10pm on weekdays and 11pm on weeknights. It's a beautiful location in the woods but we do have neighbors.

I live local and this is one of the cutest little “get away” spots for a staycation! The cabin is very clean and beautifully decorated. The hot tub and outdoor shower are soooo unique and definitely a highlight of the stay. High recommend!

This was a really nice place for my wife and I to stay for a week. We wanted a quiet place to retreat over the holidays and this was great. The unseasonably nice weather made the hiking even better (check out Trail 9 and Cowles Bog). The fire pit and wood fired hot tub are very nice additions to the experience. The area was even quieter than expected, outside of a home under construction nearby. Courtney and Lora are great hosts who are very friendly and helpful.
For us, this was one more experience to get a feel for what tiny house living might be like. Our stay was winter time and we loved it, but I bet a summer stay would be even better for the beach and lake stuff you can also experience.

My stay here truly exceeded my expectations. Can’t say enough how much I enjoyed my time. The hosts were amazing, the property was beautiful and the bed was super comfy. I wanted a place to rest and get some work done and it was perfect. Can’t wait to come back in the summer and go to the beach!

The cabin is absolutely adorable. The mini fridge and microwave was very handy for left overs, and the king bed was a dream. If you are there during cooler months, the cedar hot tub is a must!! The only downside, especially when it’s cooler, is that you must go to the main house to use the bathroom, but it wasn’t a big deal. We will have to go back in the summer to enjoy the super close beach, bikes, and kayaks!

Loved my stay here! Used this trip as a solo weekend getaway. Courtney & Lora offer exceptional hospitality! I always got immediate responses from Courtney. The cabin was in pristine condition, indoor heat worked great. The location was great - easy access to the beach, hikes, & towns for meals. Courtney offers great recommendations on places to check out. And, the wood-fired hot tub is AH-mazing.

My husband and I couldn’t of had a better experience at this tiny house. The hosts were kind and very helpful. The house was clean and it was easy to relax and unplug for a bit. (Although, there is WiFi.) The bed was crazy comfortable and the hot tub was amazing. We will definitely return!
