Car: Recommended

MI Retreat is situated a just few blocks from the beaches of Lake Michigan. Although it provides a relaxing, serene environment, you can also choose to ride bikes to Stray Dog in New Buffalo, shop the local boutiques, go wine tasting, ride go-carts, or hit the nearby casinos. MI Retreat offers a great location with many activity options or simply a comfortable place to relax, play games and enjoy yourself on the couch, outdoor deck or screened-in porch.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I bought the house in 2009. I renovated the kitchen, guest bathroom, added an outdoor deck and made other improvements in 2013. I cherish the place but am not able to use it as often as I'd like. I enjoy sharing it with family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Union Pier, MI, USA:
I looked for two years before buying MI Retreat. I loved the open floor plan, skylights, and creating a colorful/relaxing space.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Abundant natural light. Screened-in porch. Outdoor deck. Modern kitchen. All the comforts of home. Colorful artwork. The place is unique and unlike most rentals. Furnished not like a rental property, but like a real home! MI Retreat is Your Retreat.
