court. This year-round Beach Retreat is
Indianas most luxurious vacation rental
offering complete privacy

Miller Beach, IN, the closest beach-side
community to Chicago, is often referred to
as the “Hamptons 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. Hundreds of attractions
are located within 60 minutes: casinos,
amusement/water parks, golf, antiquing,
wineries, outlet malls as well as Chicagos
rich culture: Millennium Park,
Magnificent Mile, museums, restaurants,
sports, etc.

The 6000 sqft six bedroom, five bath
Retreat offers 2000 sqft of custom outdoor
living space and accommodates 19 people in
beds with a limit of 29 (with Attached
Guesthouse). The floorplan is functional
with large gathering spaces for grand-
scale entertaining and comfortable, cozy
nooks for managed solitude. Unlike most
rentals flanked on both sides by neighbors
which offer no privacy, the Dream Retreat
is 350 feet from our closest neighbor. It
is located on a quiet, tree-lined, cul-de-
sac street and corner lot. Daily maid
service available upon request.

Since 2008, we have hosted thousands of
guests from 33 states and 14 countries for
family reunions, friends getaways, special
events, and couples and corporate
retreats. Escape to the dunes of NW
Indiana and experience all that the Miller
Beach Dream Retreat has to offer.

Unique and Historic Location
Our backyard and beach IS the Indiana
Dunes National Lakeshore. Only a sliver
of this natures marvel and dune trail
separate the Retreat from the semi-

muck, rocks, or algae. This area contains
one of the most diverse ecosystems in the
entire national park system. It is world
famous for the Karner Blue butterfly and
has over 369 species of flowering plants
and cacti. The first manned-glider ride,
preceding the Wright brothers at Kitty
Hawk, occurred on historic Chanute Hill
(200ft from our rear deck) in 1896 by
Octave Chanute. The Aquatorium, a half-
mile nature trail away, contains both the
Chanute and Tuskegee Airmen Museums. Lake
Street Beach, three blocks away, has a
watercraft launch.
