Union Pier cottage description

Our cottage is located only 1/2 block away from one of the quietest family friendly beaches in Union Pier. In a secluded setting it is surrounded by tall trees and set far back from all roads. It is difficult to find and we like it that way.
The master bedroom (with a king size bed) on the first floor has french doors that lead to a large deck and screened in gazebo. The adjacent living room has a vaulted ceiling and wood burning fire place. A fully equipped kitchen is located between the living room and a cozy dining area with large windows and a patio door that leads to the spacious deck and Weber grill.
On the second floor is the 2nd bedroom with a queen size bed. This bedroom and adjacent bath are private with views of a huge front yard sheltered by 100 year old tall trees. The 2nd floor also has a sleeping loft with a full size futon sofa that can sleep 2. All ceilings on the second floor soar to 12 ft.
The setting is private with only two neighbors nearby; one in a single family home and the other in a cottage identical to our own adjoined to ours.

                  Car: Necessary

                  Union Pier is the center of Harbor Country where recreational activities abound. Visit the numerous antique shops, wineries, nature centers, state parks, or relax on the beach or dine at one of the many excellent restaurants. Local farms and orchards produce some of the Midwest's finest fruits and vegetables, and restaurants practice a 'farm to fork' philosophy. Quiet country roads beckon cyclists and Lake Michigan provides opportunities for any imaginable water activity or sport.
