About Erica Carli
We live in Chicago and discovered Harbor Country through a family member, who has a home in New Buffalo. We fell in love with the area as it is a very short drive from Chicago, but makes you feel like you are a world away from the hustle bustle of the city. We know you will love this area of the country as much as we do. We are very detail-oriented when it comes to furnishing a home and have tried to think of everything to make your stay fun, relaxing and enjoyable. We are fair, level-headed and love to hear feedback about how to make your stay even better.

Great Vacation Home
The house is well done, perfect for our group of 8, location to the beach is nice, we even had a group of dear visit outside the window a few times!
A step back in time...with many updates!
Driftwood cottage was fabulous!
We rented a similar cottage in Paradise Villa two years previous to this and were apprehensive about trying a new place. Driftwood had all that the other cottage had...and more updates.
We love the open floor plan, well appointed kitchen, new bathrooms, the furniture, beds, etc...were all clean, comfortable and inviting.
We took our coffee every morning outside around the fire pit in the Adirondack chairs...enjoying the woodland, community setting and imagining what it must have been like back in the 30’s and 40’s when the cottages were first built!
The location is great for walking to the beach AND town. Parking convenient to cottage location.
We hope to be back soon!
We had a wonderful visit and look forward to coming back soon.
Driftwood Inn - Union Pier
This property looks exactly as shown in pictures. It is located in a section called Paradise Villas. It's surrounded by trees and plants. To get to the beach you walk down a pebble pathway by other quaint cottages. Property was clean and we could prepare meals and cook. We walked to the bakery down the street almost everyday. It's very quiet and you can see the stars at night. Union Pier is a very small town and secluded. New Buffalo, which is a short drive, had shopping. We also went to the Outlet Mall, casinos, various restaurants, and Farmer's Market. Beach was clean and not to crowded. This was a great place to get away for awhile and I would come back. Thanks!
Lakeshore Lakeside Getaway
We had a lovely stay in this charming cottage nestled in among other charming cottages and a lush garden of ferns and other beautiful vegetation. It was more than expected and perfectly appointed! We enjoyed the area as well - walks to the beach, visiting nearby towns, and eating in good restaurants. It was a very satisfying getaway!
Nicely renovated, comfortable, easy access to beach.
From the glistening white sands of Lake Michigan’s beaches to the lush, beautiful countryside, this property is located in Harbor Country which combines the best of two worlds: rustic country charm coupled with highly sophisticated shops, lodging, restaurants and galleries. Fun, relaxation and discovery to be enjoyed year around.
