Union Pier house description

5 bedroom / 3 bath gem located in the heart of Union Pier on a half acre of green lawn and tall trees. Just a short walk to the beach, this charming home is the perfect setting for a laid back vacation in Harbor Country. Recently renovated, no detail has been left unchecked from linens and towels to beach chairs and bocce. Enjoy the comfort and privacy of the luxurious guesthouse (sleeps 4), or choose from twin, queen or king bedrooms in the main house.

Gather on the rear deck to savor a tasty meal prepared in the fully appointed kitchen. Outdoor chefs will love the choice of gas or charcoal grill. If you run low on limes or libations, Bud & Elsie’s market is just a short walk away. After a bonfire in the yard, cozy up in one of three comfy screen porches surrounding the house.

Outdoor speakers provide the soundtrack while soaking in the six person hot tub. Take part in one of life’s simple pleasures after by showering under the stars in the private outdoor shower. Kids of all ages will love the guesthouse loft and swing chairs. If the season is right, wake to find ripened raspberries in the garden before setting off for another day on Lake Michigan’s sandy shore.

Rest and repeat.

              Location

              Union Pier is one of eight small towns located in Southwest Michigan that together create the charming area known as Harbor Country. Located just 80 miles from Chicago, this casual beach community is custom made for laid back vacations. Spend the day relaxing on one of Lake Michigan's pristine beaches (including the excellent Warren Dunes), or amble the Red Arrow Highway until you find your perfect treasure at one of the roadside antique shops and art galleries. Make time to stop occasionally at Harbor Country's friendly wineries and breweries. Choose from a wide variety of casual and fine restaurants nearby serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: We live in Chicago but spend as many weekends as possible in Union Pier throughout the year with family friends at our cottage. Originally from Southeast Michigan, we have made Chicago our residence for the past 20 years.

              Why the Owner Chose Union Pier:
              We discovered Union Pier after friends were married there in 2002. Thrilled that this awesome beach community was only 80 miles from Chicago, we jumped at the chance to buy our cottage when it became available. As city dwellers, we love having a large, lush yard. The privacy of our lot is really special.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our cottage comfortably accommodates multiple guests and still provides everyone with a nice level of privacy. The screen porches allow for quiet time to sneak away to read a book or play a game while the deck, family room and dining room serve as primary gathering spots. This well built home is quiet, comfortable and inviting in all seasons.
