Camp Baxter, a newly renovated Smart Cottage tucked away in a secluded section of Miller Beach in the Indiana dunes, is the latest offering from Miller Beach Vacation Rentals. Nestled on the side of a dune and loaded with modern conveniences and amenities, this 2 Bedroom/1 Bath home also has large outdoor living spaces and a perimeter fence that surrounds the entire compound, for the ultimate in privacy.

A few notes:
* The structures (small house and pole barn) on both sides of the cottage have been recently demolished and after the debris of these "eyesores" is cleared, the areas will be restored to their natural Duneland state. These razed structures are visible only upon approach, and we have erected fences to obscure visibility of these areas from inside Camp Baxter. Once you enter the gated compound filled with mature black oaks, evergreens, and wildflowers, it is easy to become one with nature and enjoy its beauty in all four seasons!
*Skylighted, vaulted Living Room, Dining Room, small, but functional Kitchen, two queen bedrooms, heated marble tile bathroom with jetted tub, and unfinished basement doubles as a Rec Room.
*700 sq. ft of multi-level outdoor living spaces are perfect for grilling, making campfires, relaxing, entertaining, showering (seasonal), or simply soaking up the natural surroundings from the 6-person hot tub cut into the side of a dune.
*Perimeter and privacy fences surround the compound and we are dog-friendly. You open the wooden gates, drive inside, and park wherever you wish.

*Sleeps four (4) in two private, queen bedrooms and an additional four (4) guests on a full-size, fold-down sofa bed and deluxe, high-rise Aerobed (all bedding is provided)
*Additional guest fee applies over 4 people: $15/person per night (not including children less than two years of age on Arrival Date), regardless of length of stay or purpose of visit. Maximum occupancy is 8 to 10 people.
* Parking for up to four vehicles inside the gated yard. There is no guest access to the garage.
