Great for walking and hiking in the dunes and on the beach. Watch the woods from the screened in front porch. Great wood stove . 5 minute walk from semi-private Lake Michigan beach and 45 minutes from downtown Chicago. The house, is built into dunes so most of the living space is on second floor up in the trees. Close to National Lake Shore and Indiana Dunes State Park. Comfortable informal house in relaxed beachfront community of Miller Beach. Swimming, hiking, walking. Miller Beach has hills, beach and a mixture of permanent residents and visitors. It is very low key and quiet. Walk out the front door and you are walking distance to many hiking trails. When snow falls (not often in recent years,) cross country skiing abounds. Miller beach has resident-only parking -- this means there is little parking for outside visitors unless you are renting a house or in front of restaurants and other commercial areas.

The NeighborhoodMiller Beach, IN, the closest beach-side community to Chicago, is often referred to as the “Hampton's of the Midwest”. It is a unique and growing artist community in NW Indiana full of galleries, shopping, fine dining, and miles of pristine beaches and nature trails that offer a very diverse ecosystem and varied topography. Hundreds of attractions are located within 60 minutes: casinos, amusement/water parks, golf, antiquing, wineries, outlet malls as well as Chicago’s rich culture: Millennium Park, museums, restaurants, sports, etc. Getting AroundBy vehicle: Villa Santorini is approximately six miles from the Chicago Skyway (I-90) and Interstate 65 and five miles from Interstates 80/94. By train: Ogden Dunes Train Station is three miles away and the Miller Beach Train Depot is four miles. Both of these operate the South Shore Commuter line that takes you all points East and West including Chicago's Museum Campus, Hyde Park, University of Chicago, McCormick Place, downtown loop, Magnificent Mile, and Millenium Park. By bike or on foot: There are hundreds of miles of nature trails and pristine beaches nearby to explore including world famous West Beach and pavilion (Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore) which is only 3/4 mile from the villa. By plane: three major airports serve Chicagoland including O'Hare (60 minutes) and Midway (40 minutes). While it is possible to fly into Chicago, take the train to Miller Beach, then bus to the villa, a vehicle is recommended. Some of our guests have done this and said it takes about three or four hours with all the transfers. Other Things to NoteThere is usually a North breeze coming off Lake Michigan and being on a dunetop can be quite chilly at night, especially during Non-Peak Season (end of September through Memorial Day), so you may want to bring a jacket just in case. We do offer a year-round outdoor fireplace with seasoned oak and maple hardwood to warm you up on those chilly evenings as well as an 8-person outdoor hot tub. Due to weather conditions, the gas fire pit, patio furniture, swings, and gas grill are available seasonally (mid-March through late November). There is an additional fee of $50 per person (over age 2 on Arrival Date) for any number greater than 18. Our maximum occupancy is 30. Dog Friendly: Up to four adult, house-trained dogs are allowed for additional fees. Please Contact Host. Holiday/Event Fees: Please Contact Host. Early Check-in/Late Checkout: Please Contact Host. State and County taxes will be added to total and remitted to proper taxing authorities.
