      The SpaceWe have a small in law suite/studio with kitchenette on the back of our house. It's a completely separate space with no access to the main house but still connect to the main house. It shares 1 wall with the main house. The suite was an addition to the main house with 3 walls that are not connected to the house. The kitchenette room is surrounded by the house so you will likely hear my kids in the kitchenette room. The room is a cool hybrid bed and breakfast/private room. We're calling it a "bed, beach, and bike" perfect for active families who enjoy hiking and biking. We hike in the Dunes National Park across the street almost daily with our dog and kids. The kids search out bugs and like to splash in a small creek that crosses the trail. It's a shaded and gorgeous walk through the trees. The room is comfortable but the Indiana Dunes park is absolutely stunning! There is a small kitchenette with Kurig type coffee and we have a few things like paper plates, plastic forks, spoons, and coffee mugs and a couple of glasses. We provide a couple bottles of water with each stay in the mini fridge in the room. The kitchenette is not an ideal space for cooking (although possible) but perfect for snacks and can work for a grill out night. The grill is nice because it's connected to the main house gas line so we will never run out of gas. Again, although this space is separate we do share one wall and vents so there can be noise transfer. The room itself is quiet. However the kitchenette seems to be the noisiest because my children's bedroom is on the other side of that wall. I always advise guests to shut the kitchen door so to they are not bothered while sleeping. Other things to note: -We are on a well water system with a softener. It's safe to drink out of the faucets but it does smell like hard water. -There is a king sized poster bed and a queen sized air mattress(please request this to be set up if you need it). -The gas fireplace is really nice and there is large jacuzzi tub in front of the fireplace. - The room does not have it's own thermostat. It shares heating and cooling with the main house. I try to keep it at a comfortable 70 degrees all the time. Some people prefer it cooler or have requested the AC be turned off. I'm happy to accommodate those requests. -The room has 4 skylights so there is lots of natural light! We do not have black out curtains so you will likely be up with the sun. The natural light is my favorite thing about the room because it's ideal for getting up for a hike. You will hear the rain on the skylights. It's fantastic during a storm! -We have free WiFi although it doesn't have a great signal strength for streaming in the room due to some sound proofing material we installed. We have an ethernet cord for streaming(please request it if needed). -This is a raised ranch house so there are steps up to the deck and down the main deck so not ideal for elderly people. - We live in the house in front and treat our renters like neighbors. If you happen to be on the main deck we will likely join you. We rented the back apartment out because generally we enjoy meeting and chatting with people. For folks needing a more private getaway there is a small deck connected to the room that will not join you on. -We don't have cable but there is a small digital antenna for local channels and we have a dvd if you want to rent a redbox in town. Guest AccessGuest have access to everything they see. We love the Dunes and guests should feel at home here. We host people all the time so leave things like bug spray and extra drinks in the garage fridge for guests to use. The main deck and pool are shared spaces. You have to walk by the pool and our kitchen to get to the guest garage so feel free to come into the kitchen or knock on the sliding glass door to say hello or ask for something you need. Interaction with GuestsWe do live on the property but we like to stay out of your way. If you don't see me by the pool then I'm always available via text for anything you need. Well almost always... I'm often in the woods, at the beach, or biking so I may not get the text because my phone is roaming. I hope you will understand and I will answer as soon as possible. Our bigger deck off the kitchen is a common area. If we're around you will get chatted up there! Nobody ever goes onto the smaller deck on the guest room. If you prefer privacy that's your spot. We are a busy family of four so we may not be around during your stay. If we are around we live by the moto "embrace the chaos". Never a dull moment here! We welcome you but please expect our kids, dog, family, neighbors, friends, or neighbors dog to be around at some point during your stay. We hope you enjoy the community feel and the welcoming vibe! The NeighborhoodThere are four streets in the neighborhood. Main Street turns into a gravel road that begins the Dunes National Park. Most people have moved here to access the trail system and Dunes. Walk across the street to start a hike through the woods. Getting Around- *WALKERS* If you are taking the South Shore train and planning on walking in please note we are not walking distance to restaurants or grocery. If you are coming from Chicago I would recommend a grocery store in Miller which is two train stops before ours. Also, there is a great restaurant with upscale bar and grill food that is kid friendly called Bartlets Bar and Grill. Take bikes down Calumet trail (3 miles) to Bartlets. You can also get on the South Shore train and get off on the next stop from us called Beverly Shores. Bartlet's bar and Grill is across the street. There is a seasonal convenient store open on that corner as well. These are the two best options for food and drinks. You can also bike to downtown Porter on a safe bike path called the Brickyard Trail. It has designated bridges for bikes built to cross two highways. There are two or three resteraunts/bars with great food. The brickyard trail is an awesome bike ride through the national lakeshore but be prepared to bike 8 miles each way. We do have cabs and uber in the area if needed. - I would suggest visiting the Dunes Visitor Center because it's a short walk away, has a good vibe, a fun kids area for 5y.o. and under, and lots of information on the area. We have some bikes to use but if you prefer a beach cruiser or kids tandem bike you can rent those at a bike rental place called Pedal Power at the visitor center. Other Things to NoteWe have Golden Retriever who LOVES people and loves to play. She is always up for a game of fetch. She is a great dog but definitely has a "greeting disorder". She gets insanely excited with new people. Visitors are her favorite thing in the world and you have made her day just by showing up!

There are more things to explore in our area than you will have time to do! Other Things to NoteThe Indiana Dunes State Park and The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore are just 10 minutes away with beautiful sandy beaches and miles of interesting hiking trails featuring bold vistas. From May through October there is a European Market in downtown Chesterton from 8-2. Produce, flowers, food including fantastic wood fired pizza from the Rolling Stone Baker housed in a bright red old Studebaker fire truck!

      Walk out the front door and splash in Lake Michigan, play on the beach, sink your toes into the sand and soak up the sun's rays. Or, if you're feeling more energetic, hit the lovely wooded trails to run, hike, bike or cross country ski. If you want to just stay at home, use the fully equipped kitchen to prepare a quick snack or a gourmet meal. Or choose a deep read or light fiction from our library. The choices are endless here at the beach house we call Captains Quarters.
