Dream Retreat was by far one of the nicest places my family and I have rented. Impeccably maintained, lovely decorations, and comfortable furniture. Lots of space for all of us to spread out. The views are amazing as was the beach, even in the dead of winter. The booking process is simple and convenient with excellent customer service. We were met with professionalism every step of the way. Enjoy this gem!


Just returned less than a week ago from this amazing house right on the Indiana Dunes – we had such a great time. Although the weather was a little chilly, the woodstove in the main room really warmed up the entire house and made it feel so cozy. The rooms were all very clean, including the bathrooms, and they were all positioned so that people had some privacy if they wanted. We had a large 22 person group with adults and kids, and the house was filled with games and entertainment for everyone. Hilary took the time at the beginning to walk me through the house, and she thought of everything you might miss in a vacation home – shampoo and conditioner, lotion, good knives, crockpots, whole house speakers, aerobeds – you name it. I was also really impressed with the information booklet, which had local info and very thorough lists of numbers for food, emergency, etc. The house is situated a short private path from the dunes, and it’s so quiet here – definitely a nice getaway from the city. We used both the house and the guest house, which is a very nice set up, since they are attached through a room – you do not have to leave to enter the guest house. All in all, our group had a fantastic time, and would definitely return again – Hilary is a great host, and this is a wonderful house!


Hilary is the best! She replied immediately after any questions, and was very helpful with making sure we were informed about the house and all that it had to offer. The house was better than we imagined. Our group was very impressed with the accommodations. The guest house being attached was a bonus!
