Union Pier cottage description

This is a beautifully-appointed vacation spot in the newly developed “Lake Shore Cottages” community. This lovely cottage boasts lots of living space and a terrific open floor plan, perfect for entertaining and gathering friends and family. Ideally situated on the west side ('Lake side') of Red Arrow Highway, the cottage is a charming 7-block stroll to the beach. The kitchen, dining and living areas all feature vaulted ceilings and windows throughout, creating optimal light and space. The cottage sleeps eight to ten comfortably. The master features a king-sized bed; another bedroom, queen bed; the third, bunk beds and another set of twin beds. In addition the open-air loft area has a twin daybed with twin trundle bed. A portable crib is also available to renters. The tv room has a queen pull out couch.

Additional amenities include a wood-burning fireplace, screened-in porch, front deck, back deck with beautiful outdoor shower, baby gate for top and bottom of stairs, iPhone 4 stereo system, free wireless internet, and access to the Community Pool and Club House (a fully outfitted facility, including large game room with fireplace, foosball, ping pong table, office, free wireless internet, full kitchen, outdoor basketball court; heated pool open starting Memorial Day (May) thru Columbus Day (October); membership exclusive to owners, guests and renters).

Located in Union Pier about 70 miles from Chicago (3 miles up the road from New Buffalo, Michigan), a popular weekend destination to escape the busy city pace. Amtrak services Chicago to New Buffalo, for those who'd rather do without a car. The quintessential location any time of year. Seasonal blueberry, peach and apple picking; restaurants, seasonal farmer's market and antique shops a short walk away. Nearby several notable wineries boasting dramatic vistas provide a fun, easy excursion during your stay.
