It was very late in the season when I stayed here and I was the only occupant. I was given an entry code and directions to my room, which was über cool. There's a kitchen - w microwave & fridge - a nice bathroom and the bed was super comfortable. I had a look around and borrowed a magazine from... More

We had a large group from all points of the Midwest collecting in Chesterton for a family event. The staff allowed us use of entire facility and to 'stay late' to hold our event in the Inn. Super Clean! Wonderfully appointed - even some games and puzzles for kids in the Great Room. There is no resdient staff so we... More

Wonderful time! A perfect Mother’s Day retreat!! The Beverly Shores Drive was a sweet end to most of our nights. Love everything about this house. The lilac bushes were also my favorite. Really wish there was a fire pit to hang out at, but nonetheless beautiful. Great job! See you here again soon. CAN’T WAIT!

We traveled from central Minnesota to spend our honeymoon enjoying the sand dunes! DunesWalk Inn made our stay even more enjoyable and relaxing! We loved the charm of the older building but the convenience of it's modern updates.

We have stayed at Dunes Walk Inn a couple of times now. My partner and I meet there since it is about half way between where we're living now. The last time we were there, we got there just ahead of a blizzard. It was quiet and beautiful and a great experience. I know others have mentioned concerns about noise... More

The DunesWalk Inn is more like DunesDrive Inn-- a close drive, but a drive nonetheless. We stayed for 1 night and it was understandably strange arriving to an old renovated mansion with no front desk and a questionable number of guests also staying there. The spook factor of the exterior was removed once we saw the clean, contemporary rooms and... More

This is an unmanned hotel - all contact is done by e mail. It is not a walk to the Dunes but a drive. It faces a very busy state highway and train tracks and the noise can be loud. Yet it is a former home that is nicely refurbished with very spacious suites.

Ditto the positive reviews re: aesthetics and good karma for fixing up an historic home, but know that your room is not cleaned during your stay. One extra set of towels is provided, but trash is not emptied, floors are not swept (hello, beach sand!), and bedding is not changed. There is no staff on-site, and our call to management... More

First, any place that I can book on line, and then confirm by text - has my business for life. We booked the attic suite, with our 5 year old, and couldn't have been happier with our choice. You can read on their site all about it, and it is all true. If anything, the room is much larger than... More
