Simply, walk out your front door to step onto the sand path. It leads to the world's most beautiful beach - Sheridan Beach!

Like to walk...
The historic Lighthouse with its Promenade, the Michigan City Zoo & award winning Washington Park are just a short stroll down the beach.

Like to shop, boat or play...

Important Note:
Like all area cottages, M&M Dune Cottage is separated from the lake by a naturally created, government protected dune. The pathways over the dune are marked & continually managed to keep their heights as low as possible. Last season, there were ‘easy walk’ board-walk mats placed out on two of the three beach paths adjacent to the cottage. There's a flat boardwalk in Washington Park.

Please remember to read all beach cautions (especially about riptides) and supervise children. Thank you!

5/5 Excellent

Charming vintage cottage.
Amazing location. Highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Clean and great access to the beach
We had a great time staying here. The owner was amazing, and very helpful with information on what to do in the area. We enjoyed the cottage and even used the kayaks that were available. So much fun and clean.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely vintage cottage
We absolutely loved this cottage! Enough room for all of us, and the outdoor space at night was enchanting. The proximity to the beach can’t be beat! Close enough for the kids (7-14) to head back on their own if they wanted lunch. We will be back!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely beach cottage for a perfect getaway!
We greatly enjoyed our stay at this beach cottage! It was the perfect fit for our group of 8 (4 adults, 4 children- ages 8-11). It is practically on the beach. The walk to the beach is over a pretty large dune, which may be difficult for people with mobility issues. The house was well stocked with beach gear (we loved the kayak and boogie boards!) & kitchen necessities. The area was quiet & peaceful at night. It was a rejuvenating and relaxing stay. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us!

5/5 Excellent

Family Beach Getaway
This property was the perfect location for a beach getaway. Just a few steps from the beautiful beach. The cottage was the perfect size for the 8 adults of our family and well stocked with the necessities of a home-away-from-home. Thank you!
