AWESOME CABIN EXPERIENCE!!!!

We rented a cabin at lakeside resort rentals in Lakeside, MI. The experience was nothing short of AMAZING!!! The cabin was clean & well stocked with all basic necessities. The grounds were well kept, clean, plentiful and offered much to do. The people (both employees & property owners we friendly. Helpful and more than kind!! Our experience was so good that we will definitely look to return in the Fall; and are considering purchase of a cabin in the near future!!!!

Labor Day at Beachwalk

This house was immaculate, cute, and the beds very comfortable. We had a wonderful time playing at the park just outside our front door. We enjoyed having a golf cart to get us to the beach but the walk was not very far. My only complaint was that the main floor shower/tub drained slowly. I loved the atmosphere at Beachwalk, very family friendly and quaint. We were only ~50 min drive to Notre Dame so very managable for a football weekend. My kids enjoyed playing in the 3 foot waves at the beach. The house was set up with everything we needed. The grocery store and an Outlet Mall only a 5-10 min car drive away. We had a great family weekend trip to end the summer!

Love this vacation home!

We just returned from the Beachwalk Resort after spending a week at the Harbor Lights vacation home. It was a picture perfect family vacation! I had never been to the lakeshore in Indiana and was a bit skeptical, but what a nice surprise. The beach is perfect and exceeded my expectations & location a Michigan Harbor Country is just perfect as well. Beachwalk is great for kids. It is so relaxing and kids can safely ride bikes and play in the street, go to the pool, the playground, etc. My 2 & 4 yr old just loved Harbor Lights. Every detail is very well thought out and has a super cute nautical/boating theme. They just had a blast called it the "purple house". My 2 yr old said, "I wuv you, purple house" as we were driving away. We will definitely be back. Harbor Lights is possibly the cutest house in all of Beachwalk. It really is extra special with the lghthouse shape, the theming, the backyard and the location. Owner Heather Stout was extremely helpful throughout the rental process. I was hesitant about Michigan City and waffling on the properties and after a phone call with her I was completely sold. Harbor Lights/Beachwalk lived up to her description and exceeded my expectations. Great for kids, great for adults, wonderful & relaxing. I feel so refreshed! Quick note on the other review. Treehouse Restuarant recently closed...might be seasonal? We LOVED Villa Nova pizza and The Stray Dog in New Buffalo, and Rios mexican. Delicious homemade tortillas, very fresh mex!

Amazing Family Vacation!

We recently stayed at Harbour Lights at Beachwalk resort and the reviews of the whole family was that this was a spectacular place. The owners of Harbour Lights are fantastic and take extra care to ensure that their place is in top notch shape. They went the extra mile to see that the interior of the beachhouse was had excellent finishing touches (unlike some other rentals at Beachwalk). We are a family of 4. Our two boys are turning 5 and 3 this year and each really enjoyed staying at Beachwalk. This is a very friendly place for little kids and there are lots of little activities to make the day pass by. The beach itself is amazing and it was a daily event to pull the wagon with the 2 boys to the beach. Places to eat in the area include the Tree House Restaurant on the way to New Buffalo. Great family friendly place that allows Mom and Dad to enjoy a glass of wine or a beer while the kids play in the sandy "backyard" of the restaurant. All in all a fantastic vacation and one that we look forward to repeating.

Owner Supplied Testimonials
Guestbook

We feel that we were transported to a simpler, more peaceful time in the past. Everyone is so friendly and there are so many things to do with our family. Lake Michigan, Lake Kai, the pool and park are all within walking distance. We loved it so much that we built a home.
