We stayed for a girls weekend in early October when we surprisingly had great weather. The house couldn't be cuter and had everything we needed. Jan the owner who lives next door was so helpful with what is available in the area, let us know what was going on and even called the marina for us to confirm they were still renting boats before we arrived. Having the owner next door could be weird sometimes but once she showed us around she left us alone and really she was so nice to chat with we didn't mind. I had never been to LaPorte before and would definitely come back for a quick get away from Chicago that is more affordable than some of the usual suspects. Overall we had a great weekend and the house was perfect!
My wife and I picked this cottage from all the great reviews and it didn't disappoint. From the moment we booked Jan was always just a text away from any questions we had. The cottage pictures online are nice but it's even prettier in person. We loved being so close to the lake but still have the feeling of being in the country with the backyard setting. The cottage was extremely clean and as other guests said there isn't one detail that Jan missed it really made us feel like home. We already booked our next stay and we are happy now to have a place to go back to a few times a year. Thanks John & Jan see you soon.

This is the second time we have stayed at this beautiful cottage. It is so warm and homey and decorated according to the season.
The owners are so helpful in so many ways. Knowing my grandkids and great grandkids were coming to visit, Jan brought out toys from the garage and had toys and games in the house. The cottage accomodates friends and families to stay overnight. My granddaughters loved the sleepover. Everything you need to have a family get together.
They bring you in as guests but we left as friends. Can't wait to go again.
My family adds its voice to the chorus of well deserved great reviews for this home and Jan. We were 4 family members (no couples) and a young infant. Everyone was very comfortable and slept perfectly. The house is lovely and the neighborhood is very pretty for stroller walKS.
We also enjoyed a marvelous beach on Lake Michigan not far away. Jan really thought of everything for comfort - lamps and chairs just where you want them,private back deck and of course the lake right there and restaurants close by. We hated to leave.
wouldn't want a more attentive person for a manager, Jan was great with all concerns and issues that we had such as where to go for food and entertainment. she also was real great with the instructions to the beach, in fact she drove us there so we wouldn't be looking for it all day when it was only a couple minutes away. the cottage was real nice and comfortable, nice scenery too, when we plan to come back to La Porte we will definitely stay at the Cozy Country Cottage. Thanks John and Jan
