About the Property

Summer House with pool Lakeshore Rd Union Pier

You can walk the beach for countless miles in either direction. Or never move from your beach towel except to turn over. After a long sun filled day on the beach, shower in the outdoor gazebo shower; return to the beach for a glass of wine and a toast to the spectacular sunsets every evening. See the green flash some nights. See the mirage of the City of Chicago across the lake on special nights.
Address: 15915 Lakeshore Road, Union PIer, MI 49129

The Summer House has sky lights and cathedral ceilings. The open floor plan makes it perfect for family gatherings. The large kitchen invites everyone to help with the chopping, searing, mixing and dressing of the salads for dinner.

The deck holds the large outdoor table and chairs, gas grill and a bar and wicker chairs. All of this overlooks the swimming pool, the very large and deep back yard.

There is a children's jungle gym and fort on the back lawn.

In June of 2016, one of The Summer Houses renters who returns year after year wrote such a good description of the house that I asked his permisson to quote him. Here is how our renter John B. described The Summer House:
"Our family has stayed in several homes along lake michigan but it seems like we always come back to our favorite... "The SummerHouse." Colleen the property manager is wonderful to work with and could not be more accomodating. She is always available for any questions about the home or area and very quick to address any concerns there may be.

" The two story home (first level / walkout basement to pool) is perfect for families with a wide range of ages. Two bedrooms upstairs, and one bedroom downstairs in addition to 4th bed/sleeping quarters makes it possible to seperate those who may go to bed early and those who stay up late. There is a large fully stocked kitchen that has everything you need to make family dinners at home with plenty of seating around the kitchen island or dining room table. There is a deck that spans that entire back of the home and very large concrete patio with ample furniture to lounge around the pool has an automatic cover for the parents convenience and piece of mind. The backyard is great for the kids to blow off energy on the swing set or a game of whiffle ball and has a fire pit at the rear of the property for snacks and stories as the night winds down. The home is a very short walk to a large nicely maintained beach area. The SummerHouse located in Union Pier is only a 5 minute drive away from restaurants and some nightlife in downtown New Buffalo, but far enough away in a quite neighborhood for some relaxing vacation time. There is a small market and a wonderful deli a short walk away for those who would prefer not to leave Union Pier. Must do area activites include visiting the Galien River County Park where there is a fishing dock and a sky platform that overlooks the river and wildlife area. The New Buffalo Township Office has a splash park for kids, a nature trail, and full court basketball court as well. Just a short drive up the road you can rent kayaks and spend an hour or two paddling on the Galien River. We will return to the SummerHouse without a doubt!" - John B. and Family - Indianapolis, IN
Thank you, John, from Colleen.
