Everything for your getaway--whether it's a night, a weekend or a week! Just over 1.5 miles to Weko Beach on Lake Michigan. Steps from downtown Bridgman and close to Sawyer, Buchanan, Four Winds Casino, Warren Dunes, Three Oaks, St. Joseph & New Buffalo! Check out the local wineries, like Tabor Hill and Round Barn, and the breweries, like Tapistry, Transient Artisan Ales, Cultivate, Haymarket and Greenbush, and some great restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, too!

Le logement

Two bedroom, one bathroom classic 1950s ranch home that's only 86 miles from downtown Chicago in the town of Bridgman, MI which is Exit 16 in Michigan---16 miles from the Indiana/Michigan border on Interstate 94. The kitchen and bathroom in the house and the side porch have been gut rehabbed and professionally designed. The living room also was completely renovated from paint to lighting to a dining table and a new couch!

Central heat and a/c, off-street parking on driveway, large yard, outdoor fireplace, washer/dryer, cable TV and wi-fi. Linens and towels are provided. A king size California style/platform bed is in the master bedroom, and a queen size bed is in the guest bedroom. The living room has an L-shaped couch which works well if you need another 'single bed'---I end up sleeping there often when I have friends visit, and I find it quite comfortable. There's a large porch off the sliding glass door on the side of the house, as well as a back deck off another sliding glass door that goes off the master bedroom in the back of the house.

Check out the wineries, bike trails, restaurants, galleries and a whole lot more that Southwest Michigan has to offer. Bridgman is 15 miles from New Buffalo and the Four Winds Casino, 10 miles from St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, and very convenient to Stevensville, Sawyer, Harbert, Union Pier, Buchanan, Three Oaks, Niles, South Bend (IN) and all the quaint Michigan towns that 1000s of visitors go enjoy all year long!

Check out the new HAYMARKET BREWERY---great patio which is dog friendly! TAPISTRY Brewery and Transient Artisan Ales are located in downtown Bridgman, and the very popular Greenbush Brewery is located in downtown Sawyer. Also, Lake Street Eats is now open in downtown Bridgman. Tabor Hill Winery is located in the country between Bridgman and Baroda--and is set in a beautiful location with a great restaurant that is open year-round! Walk up the street to D'Agostino's and the Navajo Lounge---busy almost every night of the week! Couple great little breakfast spots in town, too--the greasy spoon downtown called Eric's, and a newer spot on Red Arrow Highway.....but, my favorites for breakfast are Luisa's next to the Swedish Bakery in Harbert and the Blue Plate Cafe in Lakeside--in the summer, you can eat on the patio with your dog, too!

And, of course, the most visited tourist attraction is LAKE MICHIGAN which is walking distance from the house--albeit it's about 1.25 miles....walk west along Lake Street from the house, and Lake Street ultimately ends at Lake Michigan! Bridgman has a beautiful sandy beach called WEKO Beach, and a beachhouse is also located at the beach. Each night in the summer at sundown, taps is played LIVE!

There's a convenient grocery store in town called HARDING's and a RITE AID drug store next to the Harding's, or if you need a larger grocery store, there's a huge 24 hour Meijer store in Stevensville--at Exit 22, or just go north on Red Arrow Highway about six miles until you see the Meijer.

If you're looking for more sleeping space, you can consider renting my other house in Bridgman which shares a driveway with this ranch house--I call the other house a 'cottage' and it's also listed on airbnb, and it can provide another sleeping area for you and your guests if you're traveling with more people.

The house IS pet-friendly, though no animal lives there full-time. YOU MUST PROVIDE ME THE BREED, AGE and WEIGHT OF ANY PET or PETS YOU ARE BRINGING TO THE HOUSE FOR ME TO CONSIDER WHETHER THE PET WILL BE ALLOWED AT MY HOUSE. No dogs over 80 pounds are allowed, and no more than two dogs are allowed. Any pet under 50 pounds is $20/night/pet; and any pet over 50 pounds is $30/night/pet. The pet fee must be paid at the time of booking. Any pet at my house without paying the pet fee will result in the full forfeiture of the deposit paid for your trip.

Accès des voyageurs

The whole house is yours during your stay!

Check out time is NO LATER THAN NOON. If you wish to extend your check out up to 5 PM, then an additional $50 is charged to you. If you wish to extend your check out after 5 PM, an additional night must be reserved.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

Sometimes I meet guests when they arrive--occasionally I'm staying in the adjacent cottage during your stay.

Autres remarques

The kitchen and bathroom were gut rehabbed--as shown in the pictures. The living room and side porch have also been substantially renovated.

There is one king size bed and one queen size bed. Also, the couch is fairly comfortable for one person to sleep on---and, there's room for an airbed in the living room, but I don't have one to offer; you'd have to bring your own airbed.

If you are sensitive to night time noise, there is a train track behind the houses across the street. The train blows its horn at the main intersection in Bridgman and the intersection down the street--you WILL hear the train and its horn overnight---until you are used to it, or unless you sleep very well! Also, there is a sump pump in the basement as the water level in the town of Bridgman is high--and may be disturbing to some guests though there are times, of course, when it rarely runs, and other times when it runs frequently.

For travelers in the winter: No snow shoveling service is provided. There is, however, a shovel at the cottage for your use.

The house IS pet-friendly, though no animal lives there full-time. YOU MUST PROVIDE ME THE BREED, AGE and WEIGHT OF ANY PET or PETS YOU ARE BRINGING TO THE HOUSE FOR ME TO CONSIDER WHETHER THE PET WILL BE ALLOWED AT MY HOUSE, and the pet fee set forth will be charged to you . If you have any allergies to animals, then there may be smells that affect your allergies from pets who have stayed there--or my own dog.

I expect 100% responsible, mature guests. There are absolutely no parties of any sort allowed at my house. You may invite temporary guests/friends over who do not spend the night, but organized parties of any size, for any reason, are not allowed.

I've stayed at Brian's place multiple times and it's always great. Highly recommended.

My wife and I very much enjoyed staying at Brian's (and Bruce!) home. The house is modern (better than the pictures depict!), very clean, and well-equipped. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was in a quiet area. The home is located close to the downtown area (5 minute walk) and a quick drive to the wineries. We loved our visit and hope to stay here again soon!

This was our second stay at Brian and Bruce's house, and we had a wonderful time. We hope that we'll be able to come back soon!

Brian is a terrific host. Very prompt and detailed communication. The location of the house is great - close to lots of great beaches and many of the breweries, distilleries and wineries in the area. The art, decor, and attention to detail in the house is amazing. It's a very comfortable space and we really enjoyed the porch/patio areas. Highly recommended.

Brian's place is amazing. A five-minute walk from a handful of restaurants and small breweries. A quick drive to the beach. And a lovely, well-equipped kitchen. Lake Michigan vacation at its finest. We'll be back!

Brian's place was exactly what was described. Clean, fun, beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed throughout our stay. The location couldn't have been better either. Within walking distance to a brewery and winery, with many more breweries and wineries just a short drive away. The beach was clean and family friendly, and the dunes were also close. This place has a small town feel with all of the best touristy spots. A true hidden gem for a close beach vacation.

The location can't be beat. Bridgman's small collection of shops, breweries, and wine tasting shops were in walking distance. The Lake Michigan beach was about 10 minutes down the road, and we went fishing in the river about 20 minutes to the east. The home is spacious, and tastefully decorated with Brian's art. Brian was very friendly and communicative throughout our stay. Only wished we could stay longer.

Profil utilisateur de Brian...And Bruce, The Coonhound

I'm a retired patent attorney who has lived in Chicago for over 20 years. Currently, I split my time between Chicago and NYC. I spend much of my time traveling with my dog, a treeing walker coonhound named Bruce--whose videos can be found on by subscribing to his channel BruceAlmightyCoonhound. Together, we spend about 20 weeks per year in NYC, and also relax in Southwest Michigan, Miami, London---or any destination that I've never been since I like traveling to new places. I enjoy meeting new people, dining out, hanging out with friends, traveling, biking, skiing, shopping--especially at thrift stores, interior design, art, museums, college and professional sports--both the Chicago Cubs and the White Sox, theater and movies. I LOVED the musical HAMILTON, and I have tickets to see it for the second time in August 2017!

Come enjoy Chicago and stay in an eclectic area near the neighborhoods of Wicker Park, Bucktown, Logan Square, Avondale and Humboldt Park--and just one block from the Belmont El Stop on the Blue Line.

My vacation homes in Bridgman, MI are an easy drive from Chicago if you're looking for a get away--only about 1.5 hours from Chicago and just a mile off the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan!

My apartment in NYC is perfect for a group of three or four who are looking for their own bedrooms and having two full bathrooms, as well as a kitchen and living area to gather!
