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.

What an incredible tiny cabin! As we drove up to the listing we were on quiet, forested residential streets and we spotted deer everywhere! The cabin is #DecorGoals. It is beautifully decorated, cozy, and has air conditioning! The cabin is situated in the side yard of Courtney's home. Courtney greeted us when we arrived and gave us a quick little tour of the property. There is a wood fired hot tub, outdoor shower, and a full bathroom inside the main house available for use. It truly beautiful, luxurious listing! I would highly recommend!!! My only note is that if you are on the tall side, the ceiling of the loft bed area might be a little low for you - we managed though - even with a 6'2" guest!

Absolutely perfect! You could not ask for nicer hosts and the cabin was super clean and very cute and comfortable. Luxury accomodations! It was so great that they had a beach bag, towels and beach chairs for guest use as well as kayak and bicycle!! My favorite thing was the outdoor shower and the wood fired hot tub! There is access to a regular shower/bathroom in the house as well. It was perfectly private but the hosts were great about letting me know they were available if anything was needed. The walk to the beach was just a few minutes. I can’t wait to go back! I could not be happier about my time there. A perfect retreat!

Wow I don't even know where to begin! The place is absolutely spotless and perfectly decorated. Total aesthetic goals. They've seriously thought of every possible amenity... beach chairs, bikes, kayaks, beverages, luxurious towels and bathrobes, drinking water, etc. The bed was probably one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in and the wood-fired hot tub was so perfect! There is a private beach a short walk away and a brewery and blueberry farm within a 5 minute drive. We absolutely loved our stay and I can't think of a single negative thing to say! Thank you both for a wonderful stay!

A tiny paradise!Don't miss out on soaking in the incredible wood fired hot tub! The view from the (most comfortable) lofted bedLuxurious bathrobes and towels are provided

This place was absolutely incredible to stay at. It completely blew away all my expectations! I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday and he LOVED it!
Lora and Courtney were extremely friendly and accommodating. They even got my boyfriend his favorite beer to add to the surprise!
The cabin itself is absolutely adorable. Perfect size, really gives you that indoor/outdoor feel with the French doors. Kitchen comes with everything you need, microwave, fridge, coffee machine and there is a grill if you want to cook yourself. Also- the bed is sooooo comfortable I had the best night of sleep!
Really close to the beach. They had bikes, coolers and basically anything you would need for the beach there for us to use.
And lastely the hot tub was amazing! Made of wood and gave this amazing aroma. Very relaxing and perfect end to the day.

This was my first time using Hipcamp, and I will say that this cabin out shines every Airbnb experience I’ve ever had! Thank you again Lora and Courtney ❤️

We really enjoyed staying in the Tiny Cabin. My wife was thrilled with it. I am a bigger guy so it seemed a little small for me, but I also enjoyed it. The area is fantastic and the beach was awesome. We would highly recommend this location. While we did not have a chance to meet our hosts, they were very helpful and communication was great. You must try the hot tub if you get a chance!

Our get away was wonderful. Our host had everything you'd need from an abundance of beach supplies to a wood burning hot tub. The tiny house is beautiful and not along walk from Lake Michigan. This was a unique place to celebrate our anniversary. Thanks for a memorable stay.

Husband isn't into 'roughing it' so as a compromise we booked this super cute space for a quick getaway. I grew up visiting the area and this space offered a great way to enjoy biking, the beach and Campfires as an adult. The home and property are a great place to take a break. Courtney provided all of the necessary items, from beach toys to the jacuzzi. She was super helpful with some recommendations as well.
I will echo what others have said about the ceiling clearance in the sleeping space: I'm 5'7 and my husband is 6'4. I was okay but he had some issues. The bed was super soft and comfy nonetheless.
