You'll love eclectic Miller Beach. Quiet, tranquil setting with plenty of nature, but close to Chicago city life too. Short walk to beach, walk to parks, restaurants, brewery, and shops.


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. Cabin has a deck in the treetops, fireplace, grill, beach toys, and bikes. For the literati, Nelson Algren slept here. Friendly neighborhood surrounded on three sides by Indiana National Lakeshore.

The property abounds with wildlife, birds, raccoons, and deer. The deck makes for great viewing and you can hear the waves in the distance.

The cabin has an airy open layout. The great room has a gas fireplace. Kitchen is fully stocked and has a microwave and dishwasher.

Bedroom 1 has a real queen bed and large closet. Bedroom two is very small, full bed and no closet. Folding crib available. Three large, comfortable couches, and several air mattresses can accommodate more.

Sun porch is comfortable in 3 seasons.

Ample street parking. Cabin accessed by 30 stairs.

Miller is a quiet, friendly neighborhood, surrounded by miles of National Lakeshore black oak savannahs. It is several miles from downtown Gary, which has some dangerous areas. Miller has a train station, 2 miles from cabin, with 1 hour service to downtown Chicago with stops at the museum campus and famous Millennium Park. Price is $10 round trip with regular service starting early and ending late.

3 casual restaurants, some that offer live music on weekends, are within walking distance, as well as a beautiful park and lagoon.

30 minute drive to Michigan City with restaurants, watercraft rentals, outlet shopping and casino and spa. Train also runs to Michigan City.

Important: A non-refundable deposit of $150 is required and will be applied to your reservation. Cleaning fee of $40.

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.

Tracy's place was a great get away from the fast pace of every day life. Only a short walk away from the beach and in a quiet wooded area where you can hardly hear anything but wildlife. But even being so secluded, the house was only a 10-15 minute drive to a train to take you into Chicago so we didn't have to drive into the city. Tracy also had just about everything you could think of needing already in the house when we got there and was very kind and welcoming.

This is the perfect little getaway! You could spend hours reading at the beach, then cool off from the hot sun by taking a swim in the lake, which was beautiful in mid August. Then you could head into Chicago where there is so much to do. Great coffee, food and so many museums to visit. Everything you could possibly want is within reach at Tracy's treehouse.

We had a great time staying at this house. The home and area are beautiful and peaceful. Quiet beach is a very short walk from the home. We hope to stay here again!

I can't say enough good things about this place! It's private, beautiful and just steps from Lake Michigan. Just the reboot I needed this summer! Tracy was so easy to work with and very accommodating! Hope to make it back there!

This the the second time in 3 years we've stayed here, and we loved it again. The "treehouse" is on a knoll surrounded by vegetation and relatively private (one close-by house on the west side). It's equipped with all the amenities we expected and needed. Despite windows on all sides the inside is a bit dark but very roomy and inviting, with plenty of light fixtures. It was hot and muggy during our visit in July, but all the screened windows open and there are several ceiling fans. The history of the house is fascinating. The location is awesome...just 1 block from the lake, with a great private swimming beach (no lifeguard, but it's patrolled). Bird species abound, and the house wrens were nesting right outside the dining room window. We wish we would have had time to make use of the bicycles. Tracy was very responsive to our texts, and we highly recommend her place for a fun, relaxing stay.

If you're looking for a quiet place to stay with friends or family this is the place. Every morning I walked the beach and then read a book on the back porch under a canopy of trees. It was gorgeous.

Tracy's treehouse is a quaint comfortable cabin within walking distance to the beach. It's also a short drive to Indiana dunes State Park.

I've done quite a bit of travelling and hosting travellers too. These days I'm staying home more to enjoy this cozy cabin, but am willing to give it up occasionally for fellow air bnb guests.
