About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedroom , 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Maison de Reves (French for House of Dreams) is the perfect cottage for a romantic getaway or a fun-filled family vacation--in all seasons. The cottage has been impeccably renovated and has it’s own private yard with beautiful gardens and patio furniture. It is a 2-bedroom 2 bath, well-equipped stainless steel eat in kitchen for 6, 2 full bathrooms, outdoor hot water shower and a beautiful open air living room/dining room that seats 8 with vaulted ceiling. After a beautiful sunset over Lake Michigan, come back and snuggle up with a good book next to the fireplace.

Inside and out, our cottage is the perfect retreat. It is only a block to the beachs of Lake Michigan. Union Pier beaches are sugar sand and the softest and widest in SW Michigan! And, it is only a block to a great little bakery and breakfast places, coffee and latte shops, unique restaurants and even fine dining. Or you can just stay at the cottage, sit on the front patio, grill your own favorite fare and watch the passer's by.

We are centrally located in the heart of Union Pier just off of the main road into town. Easy to get to, and easy to go to other attractions such as the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, various seasonal Art Fairs, Farmer’s markets, Antiquing, or just 'Heading up the Red Arrow Highway'.

Home from a wonderful week-end stay at this cottage. Home was exceptionally clean and we loved the decorating. So many unique touches. A perfect location for biking Harbor County. A short walk to the beach for a late afternoon lunch after a day of beautiful MI weather for biking. You won't be disappointed staying here.

Wonderful - Wonderful - Wonderful!!!

My husband and I enjoyed every moment at this Union Pier retreat. The house is beautifully decorated and only a short walk from the beach. The owners took great pride in providing all the necessary amenities. We'll be sure to book with them again!

Great Vacation with Family

  • 5 of 5

The House of Dreams was perfect for our vacation with our son and his family. He was able to drive to and from work in IN and still be included in all the activities. We all enjoyed this great house and the beautifully maintained yard and patio. Nick was easy to contact and his personal responses were timely. The new upstairs bedroom and full bath were beautifully decorated and comfortable with a great view of the trees from the skylight window where each morning I watched two black squirrels play high in a tree from my bed! We brought a few kitchen appliances which we would not have needed as the kitchen is fully stocked with small appliances. Our grandson loved walking or riding our bikes to Milda's corner store to buy ice cream treats. The store also had gourmet deli sandwiches and salads, fresh baked goods and basic groceries. The private beach was small but adequate for staking out your own family spot in the sand. As stated by others, this home is unsurpassed as a vacation rental. We throughly enjoyed our week of perfect weather.

Fall weekend at " House of Dreams"

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed a peaceful and cozy Fall weekend in this beautiful home! Even lovelier than the photographs...our children loved the sleeping loft, we all loved the fireplace, the numerous windows letting in natural light everywhere, comfortable and beautiful furnishings, well appointed kitchen, comfort and convenience throughout. The owner was a pleasure and truly made us feel as guests in his home. Beach is a a quick block or two away, gelato nearby,...We have spent 10 summers in UnionPier- This home would be lovely in any season!

A little bit of French Country in Union Pier.

Dream getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed our weekend at Maison des Reves more than we could have ever imagined! The home was impeccably clean with a lot of modern updates. The kitchen was beautiful and well stocked, which made cooking a breeze. All of the unique furniture and decor really made the house warm and inviting. The location was also great: a short 5 minute drive to New Buffalo for a night out, but still in a quiet, peaceful area. The walk to the beach was also a short 5 minutes.

The regular bedroom was cute and comfy, but the lofted bedroom was a bit of a climb. I wouldn't recommend planning to stay up there if heights make you nervous. However, there was also the sofa and even an available air mattress, so more than enough room if you're sharing beds for 6 people or fewer as the listing advertises.

I'd highly recommend Maison des Reves! We will definitely be back!

Immaculate inside and out--perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage far exceeded our expectations--it is absolutely immaculate and so very charming on the inside and out! My husband and I stayed for a long weekend for my birthday and I couldn't have been happier with our choice--just beautiful! It feels open and airy and the décor is gorgeous and unique. It's a short walk to the public beach--which is beautiful as well. Can't say enough about this gem--will definitely be coming back again soon!
