Union Pier house description

This property was recently built with the utmost attention-to-detail by an award-winning interior designer. The main house has four bedrooms and a finished basement with additional sleeping space for 4 people (4 twin beds). Lake views are visible from almost everywhere in the main home.

Outside you will find a huge deck with an outdoor fire pit, a screened-in porch with an eating area, hammocks, lounge chairs, and tons of additional space for entertaining or relaxing. The property sits on a private beach with 100 ft of lakefront. You will have the beach to yourself all day and can have campfires on the beach every night.

Directly behind the main house you will find an adorable cottage used as a guest house. The guest house includes its own kitchen, bedroom, and living room area allowing for privacy away from the main home.

This newly constructed home was built with all high-end material and no expenses were spared. Located in the heart of Union Pier, it's minutes away from popular restaurants and only 10 minutes from downtown New Buffalo.

                The property was beautiful, as described and shown in the pictures...everything was clean and in working order. We were a group of five adult couples (10 adults), two teenagers, and two babies. There was ample room for everyone to have privacy, and ample room in the kitchen to cook (we made Thanksgiving dinner) and to eat together at the large dining table. The kitchen was very well appointed. We used the outdoor fire pit to make a great fire and toast marshmallows; and the weather was nice enough to walk on the beautiful beach for two of the mornings of our stay. I'm sure this is a fantastic place to visit during the summer (I hope we can do that sometime in the future), and it was exactly what we wanted for a family Thanksgiving. The entire family was quite pleased.

                We stayed at this house for the weekend of our wedding with a few close friends. It was wonderful to have a central place for everyone to stay in between the rehearsal dinner and ceremony/reception. My husband and I stayed in the separate garage unit and our friends stayed in the main house. We had a wonderful time, relaxed, built a bonfire on the beach and cooked. The views are gorgeous, the beach is wonderful and we were still close to great restaurants for dinner and breakfast. I would definitely stay here again, and we may even make a yearly event out of it!

                This home and property are very special. Great spaces to hang both in and out of the house. The place is clean and well kept which is important to me. Easy and smooth dealings with owner. Would come back in a heart beat. In fact, cant imagine anything better on the shores of Lake Michigan. The sunsets take your breath away.

                We spent the minimum five night stay at this lovely home. We had four families from Chicago, LA and San Francisco with a total of six children. We were all in awe of the creature comforts in the house, the design, and the flow. We spent most of our time on the main floor with the porch doors open, when we were not down at the amazing beach. The yard was interesting enough to hold the kids' (age1-9 Y.O.) attention and to contain them. Everyone loved the outdoor shower that opened right into the bathroom with all the towels. The adults hung out on the hammocks and around the fire pit in the evening. The kids all slept in the basement on the four memory foam beds. The bedrooms were all comfortable and the showers were great. The guest house was a great bonus- especially since we had some visitors for a couple of the five nights. This house was NICE down to the dishware, beach towels and outdoor furniture! I highly recommend this house to families with children or for a girls getaway weekend... We absolutely loved it.

                We had a wonderful week at this lovely spacious home. There was plenty of room for everyone & the kitchen was wonderful and had all the conveniences you would ever want. We all loved being right on the beach and enjoyed the lake and sandy shores all day. Then after dinner relaxed around the the fire pit, roasting marshmallows while watching the beautiful Michigan sunset. The main house and guest house was decorated so tastefully. The kids really liked the ping pong table downstairs! There is plenty to do in the Union Pier area if you can tear yourself away from the lake. I would recommend this house to any family who is planning a week of relaxing fun in the sun!

                Before arriving, we were a little bit unsure about what exactly to expect as far as house location and how much room there would be in the house. The house was very easy to find and just a staircase from the beach. The beach frontage and location was absolutely amazing and the backyard was breathtaking. There is enough backyard seating to hang out on the porch, near the fire pit, in the hammocks, or eat in the screened in porch. On top of it, the landscaping was beautiful and the flowers, trees and sunsets were all breathtaking. Plenty of firewood to use in the fire pit or for a bonfire on the beach. Inside the house, there was plenty of room for all of us, with 4 beds downstairs that were all MEMORY FOAM. So comfortable!!! Everything was clean and well maintained as well. The guest house worked out perfectly for my sister and her family because of the new baby and the main house had a wide open kitchen/living room space. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to have a beautiful stay with their family or a group of friends. Worth every penny 100%.

                Perfect location on the beach, easy to get to the great restaurants and shops in Union Pier and New Buffalo, and the hope is done with impeccable taste. Great for family get togethers and it was an easy drive to South Bend (~30min) to attend the Notre Dame game. We are already planning next year's trip.

                We stayed with 2 other couples and their teenage children and found everything to be what we had hoped and more! Beautiful home, breathtaking views of the lake, convenient lake access and a pristine private beach. We enjoyed playing the guitar and singing by the fire pit, eating dinners out on the screened porch, playing "Catch Phrase" by the indoor fire place and walking along the beach while enjoying a stunning sunset. We also made sure to leave the windows open in the bedrooms at night in order to listen to the soothing waves from Lake Michigan. We can't wait to go back again next year!

                This lakefront property is absolutely perfect! The house is beautiful and the grounds, private beach and location everything you could possibly want or need in a vacation home! Private beach great for swimming, bonfires and smores. I really cannot say enough about this home. Our family of 8 adults and 6 children aged 6months to 9 years loved it! We will definitely return!
