This cozy cabin is nestled high on a wooded sand dune and 5 minute walk to the beach. Chicago skyline can be viewed from the shore and accessed by train in an hour.

Air conditioning is not usually needed this close to the lake and the cabin is cooled the old fashioned way - breeze and fans. The cabin does have a furnace for colder weather.
