Union Pier cottage description

Maison de Reves (French for House of Dreams) is the perfect cottage for a romantic getaway or a fun-filled family vacation--in all seasons. The cottage has been impeccably renovated and has it’s own private yard with beautiful gardens and patio furniture. It is a large one-bedroom with private sleeping loft, well-equipped stainless steel eat in kitchen for 6, full bathroom, outdoor hot water shower and a beautiful open air living room/dining room that seats 8 with vaulted ceiling. After a beautiful sunset over Lake Michigan, come back and snuggle up with a good book next to the fireplace.

Inside and out, our cottage is the perfect retreat. It is only a block to the beachs of Lake Michigan. Union Pier beaches are sugar sand and the softest and widest in SW Michigan! And, it is only a block to a great little bakery and breakfast places, coffee and latte shops, unique restaurants and even fine dining. Or you can just stay at the cottage, sit on the front patio, grill your own favorite fare and watch the passer's by.

We are centrally located in the heart of Union Pier just off of the main road into town. Easy to get to, and easy to go to other attractions such as the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, various seasonal Art Fairs, Farmer’s markets, Antiquing, or just 'Heading up the Red Arrow Highway'.

                    We had a great extended weekend stay, the pictures are nice but do not do the home justice, it is beautifully decorated, and very comfortable, we felt right at home.

                    We spent 1 week at the cottage with our 9 months old twins. The house is amazing, the decoration was absolutely beautiful, everything was perfect, clean and in excellent condition. It was ALOT better than what you would think from the pictures only. Well done! We had been in very nice contact with the owner (Nick) upon arrival and he was VERY helpful with organizing things for us (eg high chairs for the babies). This was very helpful and appreciated. All in all we spent 7 wonderful nights, got to enjoy a very lovely place and had perfect weather to also spend time at the lake. If we happen to be back in the area, this will be our place to stay at again. Thanks Nick!!!

                    The photos of the property were excellent and everything was clean and in excellent condition. There were many things provided that I had never expected. Having stayed in the area before, this was by far the best property we have rented. Our daughter, son-in-law and 6 month old baby stayed one night with us and they had a great time also. They enjoyed the beach and some golf. We did sightseeing, shopping (Lighthouse Outlet Mall) and just relaxed in courtyard. We would like very much to return again. The owner was very hospitable.

                    The other reviewer spoke the truth - the pictures for this place really don't do it justice. The vacation home is beautifully decorated, with tons of beautiful antiques and whimsical charm. It's also immaculately clean, which we really appreciated. The lot itself is extremely private, with tons of outdoor space for having a glass of wine at sunset or reading a book during a lazy afternoon. The location is perfect - walking distance to the beach and to some cute little cafes which are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or a quick snack. It's also right off of Red Arrow which is a prime location for antiquers and/or wine enthusiasts! We had an amazing time and will definitely be returning.

                    Our stay at this cottage was perfect! The decor is so well done that the ambiance screams quaint and comfortable; we loved it! We enjoyed the proximity to the lake and took great walks on the beach, the fall colors and lake were beautiful. The food choices were plenty, yummy and very close to the cottage. It is a wonderful charming place. The owner, Nick is very responsive and helpful. He even had the cottage decorated for the season with pumkins and gourds a plenty. We also couldn't resist a trip to the pumkin patch ourselves, the weekend was great!

                    Our group of girlfriends have been getting together for our girl's weekend in Union Pier for over 15 years. Lucky us! We have rented many places, but we all agreed that our glorious weekend at Maison des Reves may have been the best. It is beautifully decorated, perfectly clean and accurately described. The owner is extremely helpful, available and gracious. We plan on returning next year and I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely home to anyone. It is a happy place and has good karma! I guarantee, you won't want to leave!

                    It is always a little scary to rent a home for a week that you have only seen on the Internet. Trust this one, everyone. The home looks exactly like the photos posted here, and it is very well maintained and clean. Size worked fine for our party of two adults and one child. The bed in the sleeping loft was comfortable.The location is perfect - short walk to store and bakery and gelato and coffee in one direction and short walk to beach in the other. Having hedges around the entire home gives a wonderful sense of seclusion and privacy. Owner is very responsive and attentive.

                    We just returned home from our stay at Maison Des Reves and I'm trying to figure out how we can go back ASAP as it is a true gem! A few things that make this cottage unique: 1) on a quiet corner and landscaped in such a way that you feel as if you are in your own little sanctuary. 2) decorated to feel like a real home and not a generic rental...think vintage finds, architectural artifacts and eclectic art. 3) Owners that have literally thought of everything that you might need on your vacation (small appliances in the kitchen, laundry detergent, a bag for the beach, beach chairs/umbrella). I felt like I was staying at a friend's home! 4) Immaculately clean and very well maintained. The owner is extremely responsive and is truly invested in making this a great experience for his renters. You will not be disappointed!

                    I've rented many vacation homes over the years and this is one of the best ever...Clean, comfortable and oozing with charm--it was ideal for our small family. The house is perfectly located just about a block from the beach and a short walk to the grocery store and restaurants. It has a lovely garden and patio, making for several enjoyable evenings grilling outside. The kitchen is spacious and well-stocked, and the living room and large screen TV was perfect for watching a movie...The upstairs loft became my teenage son's 'cave'...we brought our small TV and XBox, and with the excellent wi-fi my son enjoyed his evenings playing XBox Live. We had walks on the beach each morning and observed fabulous sunsets in the evening... we truly hated to leave this peaceful haven. The owners have thought of everything and will make sure your stay is trouble-free.

                    We absolutely loved this place!!! My wife, 2 year old and myself spent 7 great days here over the 4th of July holiday. You can tell that the owners take a lot of pride and have put their hearts and souls into this place. Everything you can imagine is provided for a comfortable stay. Short walk to the beach. This place is definitely better suited for couples or a small family like ours. I would highly recommend it and would love to go back.
