Your hosts are ready and willing to do whatever they can to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. While we respect the privacy to the utmost, we are happy for an opportunity to get to know our guests, and provide them with information, about the area and its attractions, that will help make their visit enjoyable.
Parking on-site & off-street is included & can accommodate most any vehicle, even probably those pulling a trailer. Inquire to be sure.
The lakeshore and its beaches, only a short walk away across beautiful sandy dunes, are popular destinations for swimming, jet-skiing (the launch could not be closer!), kite skiing, and, bird watching.
In summer the beaches are the perfect place to view the annual Air Show featuring acrobatic aircraft and fireworks.
We ask that guests treat our home as they would their own, and conduct themselves with the same consideration of others they would expect for themselves.
There's no smoking inside the house. And, unfortunately, we cannot accept pets.
My wife and moved to Miller three years ago, from our hometown of Chicago, for the slow pace, tranquility, and rural beauty of a small town close enough to the city to allow us to keep an eye on my elderly mother. My wife, born in South America and fluent in Spanish, has advanced degrees in early childhood development and speech therapy. When I met her eighteen years ago she was a designer of custom clothing and custom shoes, out of her own boutique; and, while I operated a real estate brokerage in Chicago, she served as my go-to mortgage broker. She also organizes and leads medical missions to Ecuador, her country of birth, and elsewhere in South America, in continuation of the work of the missionary priest who helped bring her to America when she was a little girl. I live in semi-retirement after a career as a jack-of-all-trades: cabdriver, bus driver, laborer, tax consultant, insurance salesman, financial advisor, teacher, and product demonstrator, to name only a few of my occupations. At present my life-long passion for learning is focused on the local wildlife, in particular the many different birds who visit the feeders in our backyard and the many others who live on the dunes and in the woods along our lakeshore. Both my wife and I enjoy, in our capacity as airbnb hosts, putting at the disposal of our guests our knowledge of the many attractions of the lakeshore of the Indiana Dunes and the city of Chicago.
