Charming upstairs apartment. Has a full kitchen, dishwasher, breakfast bar, queen size bed etc. We are located directly across the street from the Lighthouse Outlet Mall. This mall has 120 stores, great shopping, people come from all over the country to shop. If you stay with us you will have an apartment, not just a room. This home was built in 1900, 10 years ago we bought it, it has new plumbing, electric, kitchens,baths, central heat & air and roof. We still have the old wood floors, high ceilings,gables, arches, stairs and the Victorian style. We have had a lot of fun decorating and making each apartment special.

Four families rented the entire house for a long weekend, it is absolutely adorable and very clean. Each family was able to have their own apartment making it very nice to have separate spaces, kitchens and bathrooms. Each apartment was very comfortable and stocked with everything you could need (including beach towels). Darlene was easy to get a hold of and is extremely kind! The location was great to downtown and the mall. We were very pleased with the house and will definitely be coming back! Don't miss the Taco and Ice Cream restaurant down the street, really good food! Thanks Darlene!

Darlene was great! We were so happy to finally find a place that allowed us and our two dogs to enjoy the nearby dog beaches. It was very hard to find a nice place that would accommodate us at a reasonable price. Darlene has a clean place to stay and very cute decorations in a lighthouse theme. She was thoughtful enough to even have a bowl of water out for the dogs when they arrived. She checked in with us and was very pleasant to work with. She even changed my dates after booking to accommodate my changing work schedule! The mattress was one of the best we have ever slept on, and we slept 12 hours as a result. I would absolutely recommend this as a great place to stay!

This stay surpassed our expectations! Great location, convenient to everything, comfortable, and very quiet! You can't beat the price for all you get! The property owners make you feel at home and suggest things to do or places to eat during your stay. The next time we visit Michigan City, we will definitely stay here again!

My wife and I completely enjoyed our stay in the studio apartment. The apartment was very clean, well furnished and delightfully decorated. Most importantly the bed was very comfortable and allowed for a restful sleep. Darlene was also readily available for help upon request as we had a small issue with the satellite TV which was quickly resolved. The location is perfect...as several restaurants, shops and activities are within walking distance or a quick car ride away. Michigan City had so much to offer for a couples escape. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already decided we should return. Thanks so much everything!!!

My 7 year old daughter and I stayed for a week while my oldest was at camp in Southwest Michigan. This was the PERFECT place for an extended stay. Although at first glance the surrounding area is economically depressed, it is filled with children riding bikes, reading on the porch, or setting up the slip n'slide in the side yard. I felt completely safe our entire stay, walking with my daughter through the area to eat (great restaurants and ice cream right around the corner!) and to catch the train to Chicago for the day. The closest beach (Mt. Baldy) is closed because of a collapsing dune, but you are only about ten minutes from the next beach access. The house is literally right behind the outlet mall, which my husband may regret when he sees the credit card bill! The owner, Darlene, was very sweet and spoiled us rotten with cookies and soda. Cannot say enough wonderful things!

The reviews and descriptions don't lie, this is a great place to stay. Located across the street from the outlet mall and walking distance to the arts district, it has a lot to offer. Bring or rent some bikes and the beach is just a short trip away as well. Great dining options are very close if you are willing to give them a try, we did and they were fantastic. The apartment has a full kitchen, three piece bathroom and a nice sized bedroom for two people. It is well kept and still has some the charm you might enjoy in an older home. We would certain stay again.

My boyfriend and I booked this studio apartment for three nights. It's within walking distance to several shops and restaurants. The apartment is cute and not to mention, cheap! Would definitely stay again. By the way, thanks for the cookies, Darlene. They were delicious!
