1. The beachside cabin in Miller Beach
Aptly named the Dream Retreat, this beachside cabin is only 40 minutes from Chicago and can accommodate a whopping 19 guests. Enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding woodland or take a stroll to the beach, literally a beachball-throw away from the Airbnb. If you can't be bothered to leave the property and explore, the Airbnb has plenty for you to enjoy. From a gourmet kitchen for you to play chef, to multi-level outdoor decks with a seven-person hot tub and volleyball court, you'll be spoilt for choice.
