- One of our favorite spots is the fire pit that was made with real old Chicago bricks. Telling spooky stories and roasting marshmallows are one of our families favorite night activities. There is seating for 8 people around this and a special metal cover that goes over it for safety. Beach combing. One of our favorite activities. We go hunting for crinoids. (fossilized vertebrae that look like round stones with holes in the center) These are said to only be found in union pier. You can buy them made up in boutiques near by. It seems that everyone loves to collect beach glass, bear claws and drift wood....moreless

Union Pier is one of the treasures hidden with close proximity to Chicago. With miles of beaches, dunes, state parks, orchards, sight-seeing, casinos, shopping and antiquing Harbor County has a lot to offer.
With our hectic life styles we invite you to join us at our family retreat a place you can call home. There are sp,ay
You will absolutely love how close you are to the beach. Just walk out the door, cross the street and walk down to the beach. This is the perfect house for extended families. With four of the bedrooms downstairs, 3 having their own private baths, grandparents with their adult children and grandchildren love this arrangement.
The home was originally built as just a 13 bedroom rooming house. It was renovated with vaulted ceiling, 13 skylights, huge great room, and custom fireplace. The original transoms on the bedroom doors and wood work add charm to this home. The 3 season room with fans allows one to relax, read or chat. The front wraparound deck has hand carved spindles and is great for watching people walk and bike by. The side deck has 2 tables with umbrellas, an in-line gas grill and a gate so toddlers don't walk off. Included in the yard are a small koi pond with a waterfall and a custom fire pit with seating for 8. If you are there for the month of July and August there are 2 blueberry bushes you can pick from.
Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: We bought this home to make memories. We have a large family and we love nothing more than to share it with friends.
Why the Owner Chose Union Pier, MI, USA:
Union Pier is close enough to everything. The house is so unique, but what sold us was that the beach was so close. Just grab a beach towel, sunscreen and a drink and off you go. The fact that the steps were not numerous or steep was an added bonus with a landing right there to just sit and watch the sunset if you didn't want to get sand on your feet.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have worked very hard to make this our home away from home. When our grown up children visit they love having their own bathrooms. The older grandchildren love to sleep upstairs and enjoy their private loft area. Whether listening to the waterfall, feeding the fish, making smores at the fire pit, this home will surely fit your lifestyle.
