Alex Cabin is located steps away from your private Lake Michigan beach. Alex Cabin is a cozy ranch, fully renovated with all major appliances and WiFi. In addition, there is a grill for your convenience on the patio. It is a peaceful and quiet place, away from the street with convenient parking and a grassy area with playground for small children. This is a good vacation spot for small families or couples.
Linens, beach towels and all supplies are on-hand. Enjoy the sunsets, stroll along Lakeshore Dr., visit galleries in New Buffalo, go shopping at Lighthouse Place, visit the Zoo in Michigan City or just simply soak your feet in the tranquil lake.
**Parking is at a premium at our Union Pier location. While we do not have an on-site parking attendant, please keep the neighbors in mind and park as close together, and as close to the cottages as possible.
