Why Laura Stein chose Union Pier
Union Pier Michigan is just over an hour from downtown Chicago but affords a totally different way of life. With a relaxed atmosphere, great restaurants and shopping nearby it has the ingredients for a relaxing vacation close to home.

Perfect for a family vacation
This is the second year we've stayed at this property.
The owners are very responsive to any questions we have.
We will be returning...
Clean and quiet family friendly home
We had a great vacation! The home is clean and well furnished for a family get away. We found the kitchen to have everything we needed, including kids plates and utensils. The pool is nestled in the woods and the perfect place to spend our days. We can't wait to come back!
Relaxing stay close to beaches, restaurants, and more
Three generations of our family enjoyed time together at this lovely home. Very clean, and close to everything. Heated pool was a welcome oasis in the backyard.
Beautiful home with all the amenities!
This home is exactly as described- updated, clean, comfortable, spacious, and beautiful. We loved this vacation home! It was the perfect fit for our group of 8 girls. The private pool is fantastic, the kitchen is well equipped with everything you may need (utensils, dishware, coffee maker, toaster, tupperware, you name it!), and the space is a perfect lay out for eating all together or enjoying coffee in the living area. Beautiful open kitchen with granite countertops and new appliances make using the kitchen a breeze.
For any question, Laura was very quick to respond, and so accommodating; a true pleasure to work with. She even allowed us to arrive early, and leave at our leisure since the property was not rented out when we arrived. Our group was a girls getaway, but this is a great space for a family as well since toys, high chairs, pool toys, and kids dishware are provided. Laura really has covered so many details with this property; it has all of the comforts of home, and more.
The electronic temperature control was a bit tricky, but Laura was fast to respond via email and help resolve the problem.
I would absolutely rent Tranquil Harbor again, and would highly recommend it.
Thank you Laura and family for a lovely weekend!
We loved our stay! The house was a great open concept layout for our girls work weekend. The bed in the master is a queen which I believe was listed as a king. There were a couple burned out light bulbs, we couldn't find extra toilet paper and the door on the master bathroom didn't completely shut. But that's being very nit picky. It was a gorgeous home and we felt very cozy after getting a fire going. The kitchen had all we needed. We would definitely return!!
I'm so sorry to hear about the burned out lightbulbs. I was not made aware of this during the stay. Had I known I would have sent my cleaning lady over to replace them. Our apologies for them being burned out in the first place.
The listing states it is 2 queen beds downstairs and 2 double beds in the loft bedroom upstairs. There is no mention of a king bed in the listing.
We supply one full roll of toilet paper in each bathroom and the renters are responsible for any additional toilet paper needed. We also supply a roll of paper towels and we do leave laundry detergent and dish detergent for your use.
Great Get-Away Weekend!!!
We (3 great friends) rented this property for a girls get-away weekend. Loved the location of it and the road was absolutely breathtaking with all the trees. The area was very quiet during our stay. The house was spacious, clean and well equipped. We drew straws as to who had the master bedroom etc - bedrooms were far enough apart for privacy, even using the upstairs bedroom with the bath on the first floor worked out fine. So if one went to bed earlier than the others, they were definitely not disturbed. The beds were comfortable and definitely had enough blankets. Loved the openness of the LR/DR/Kitchen, it was great for carrying on conversations while cooking. The island separating the kitchen from the family room was quite large and nice to be able to use in preparation of meals. You did not feel like you were on top of one another in the kitchen. plenty of room for everyone to prepare meals. The sofas were comfy and great for cozying up with a glass a wine near the fireplace. The dining room table was huge, the 3 of us only used a third of the table for dining and when we played games. So it would be great for larger group of friends/family. Loved the furnishings and felt very comfortable - home away from home!
Found a great bar to watch the Cubs game (Casey's in New Buffalo). Loved using the fireplace and the weather was actually conducive for us to use the fire-pit out back for s'more time - we were up there the last week-end of October! We did some shopping, wineries, and even some hiking in a county park. The house is conveniently located with everything pretty much 15 minutes away. I think the longest we drove was 25 minutes to a particular winery. Definitely stop at Hearthwood Custom Furnishings, some very unique items - we all bought something in there! And Sawyers Antique Mall was great for browsing.
Laura, the owner, was quick in responding to any questions we had between the time we booked this property and the time of arrival. She was nice enough to waive the check-in/check-out time for us, thus not feeling rushed to leave on our last day. We would definitely consider staying there again, should our next get-away take us to the same area.
