Property description

Our cottage is located only 1/2 block away from one of the quietest, family friendly beaches in Union Pier (McKinley Street Beach). In a secluded setting it is surrounded by tall trees and set far back from all roads. It is difficult to find and we like it that way.

The master bedroom (with a king size bed) on the first floor, with a door that opens to a large deck and screened in gazebo. The adjacent living room has a vaulted ceiling and wood burning fire place. A new, fully equipped kitchen with custom cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances is located between the living room and cozy dining area, with large windows and a patio door that leads to the spacious deck and Weber grill.

On the second floor is the 2nd bedroom with a queen size bed. This bedroom and adjacent bath are private with views of a huge front yard sheltered by 100 year old tall trees. The 2nd floor also has a sleeping loft with a full size futon sofa that can sleep 2. All ceilings on the second floor soar to 12 ft.

Our deck is equipped with a gas grill and a screened in dinning area. There is also additional sitting outside the gazebo for a more open feeling.

The setting is private with only two neighbors nearby; one in a single family home and the other in a cottage identical to our own adjoined to ours.

We think our cottage is wonderful, but please keep in mind that this is not a party house and is much too small for a wedding, family reunion or party with a large group of people. Also keep in mind that we only have parking for TWO cars.

Union Pier is the center of Harbor Country where recreational activities abound. Visit the numerous antique shops, wineries, nature centers, state parks, or relax on the beach or dine at one of the many excellent restaurants. Local farms and orchards produce some of the Midwest's finest fruits and vegetables, and restaurants practice a 'farm to fork' philosophy. Quiet country roads beckon cyclists and Lake Michigan provides opportunities for any imaginable water activity or sport.
