Overview

About the property

Relax and enjoy the calm feeling of Baldwin Lake an all sports lake in Union, Michigan just 3 hours from Chicago. If Notre Dame football is your passion, we are only 20 minutes from the exit off the 80/90 toll road. This 1400 square foot 2 - story cozy cottage has 3 bedrooms and 1 ½ baths. If you need a bit more bed space, there is a convertible bed in the extra den downstairs. You’ll find a fully stocked kitchen with complimentary coffee pods for Keurig to get you started for the week. All linens and towels, kitchen items, sugar and spices, washer & dryer are all available for your convenience. This place is fully stocked, your home away from home. In the evenings you can enjoy the firepit on the patio or create your own by the lake. Enjoy family time with a wide assortment of board games or videos. Free WIFI and basic cable are available on the main TV. Two other TVs have DVD capability. Printer available just in case you need to interrupt your time with just a small amount of work. You have a choice of a gas grill or coals for the BBQ connoisseur.

Baldwin Lake is 266 acres of spring fed water enjoyment. We are at the south end with a flat lot, sandy beach, and the most incredible view of the lake. It’s very clean and full of fish you can catch right off the pier. Anglers can expect to catch sweet tasting Blue Gill, Black Crappie, Largemouth Bass or Northern Pike. If fishing is not your thing, you can lounge on the pier or swim in the lake with a variety of toys. There’s even a hammock for those who get there first. For the more active vacationer the lawn is large enough for badminton, bags, or bocce ball. For winter sportsmen, Swiss Valley Ski and Snowboard Area is only a 24-minute drive. Fall and winter 3-day weekends are available.

Major grocery stores are within 15 minutes and a small local mart is about 3 miles away which has a good deli and meat market. Mishawaka shopping is 30 minutes for anyone needing a shopping fix – it’s all there!

Please no pets or smoking inside the cottage for the consideration of future guests.

Why Karen Roberts chose Union

We fell in love with this place for many reasons. The most important was the lake itself. It is spring fed and clean. We looked for years and once we saw Baldwin we were sold. The lot is flat and the view is spectacular.

Relaxing Place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with our two adult children. Found good places to eat and enjoyed the peacefulness of our stay. Rented a pontoon boat for a day at Lake Effect Marina. Went to Three Rivers for a kayak trip. Floated on the lake with the rafts provided and enjoyed reading in the hammock. House has everything you need. TV’s? Never turned them on!! Owners communicate with you very well. Only suggestion I can make is maybe getting a couple of kayaks to use. Other then that, this home met out needs very well.

Amazing Lake Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing vacation at this rental. The house had everything we needed and more. The owners were very helpful and even checked in with us during the week to make sure we were having a wonderful stay. We all enjoyed swimming directly off the pier! Would highly recommend this rental!
