About our Area...
Tucked away, just 60 miles outside of Chicago is the Midwest's best-kept secret. Nestled between massive sand dunes, the small beach towns of Michiana offer the very best a vacation has to offer. Once the premier summer destination for wealthy Chicagoan's escaping the summer heat in the early 20th century, the area has a rich history, with many families vacationing here for generations. In the quiet and peaceful rental homes of Michiana Beach Rentals, the secret is now yours to discover. Our pristine beaches are made of soft, smooth sand found only three places in the world. This dune land area constitutes the largest group of freshwater dunes on earth. Carl Sandburg once wrote that they were "to the Midwest what the Grand Canyon is to Arizona and the Yosemite to California". Visit the Indiana Dunes National Lake shore or just take a walk down our beach. You will be fascinated by the squeaking sound of the sand along the water's edge. This is often referred to as "singing sands." The phenomenon only occurs in a band of beach about 25-100 feet wide parallel to the water's edge. The singing noise is caused by the vibration between the tiny sand particles as they rub against each other when you walk along the top of the sand. It only happens near the water because the sound is produced when a thin film of water created by wave spray coats the sand. Perfect for a family day of fun, strolling for beach glass, or escaping with a good book. Clear, warm water roll ashore inviting swimming, fishing, boating, and all water sports, while the private beaches are the perfect place for your late night bonfire!

great weekend!

June 18, 2015

We didn't get to stay at Richie's Retreat due to some issues with previous renters, but the property owner was very accommodating and updated us to a luxury beach house for the inconvenience! We had a great weekend.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Our stay at Susan's house was great. Lots of room inside in cool a/c and out on the screened porch and multiple patios, and just a short walk to the beach, we couldn't have asked for a better vacation or a better host! We'll definitely be back.
