About Dorothy L. Gaters
Live and work in Chicago; I found this area to be the perfect getaway. One hour drive from downtown made it quick and easy for me to get to my front door!
Dorothy L. Gaters purchased this House in 1993
Why Dorothy L. Gaters chose Union Pier
When I bought this property it was perfect for remodeling by being on a corner double lot. I added a second story, and enlarged and enclosed the porch. It was a great decision which added so much room included a very spacious great room.
What makes this House unique
Easy accessibility to the beach, park (across the road), only 100 feet away from asphalt for bike riders.

I rented this home for a weekend with friends - it was even better than described in the listing. Unfortunately for us, it rained the entire weekend but we had so much fun just hanging out in the large living area or playing games outside on the lawn in between rain showers. The kitchen and living room are both open and provide plenty of space for everyone. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfy. The beach is a short walk - the beach was beautiful and not crowed even in the public space. Also, the neighborhood was really great. I highly recommend!
Thank you for a great review. We are please that you and your friends enjoyed your stay at our home. We hope that we can accommodate you upon your return to the area.
We really enjoyed our stay. Just a short walk to the beach, the wagon they provided was nice to haul our stuff and sometimes the kids. This home had nearly everything we needed to be comfortable for our long weekend. We loved the area and hopefully, we will be back next year.
Thank you for your favorable review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our home. Upon your return to the area we would love to accommodate you and your family.
Great for family getaway
We loved our stay! Plenty of room for two families. The porch and yard are nice and the location is perfect! We did miss having a dishwasher since we had a big group, but other than that everything was great!
This house was perfect for a group of 8 longtime friends looking for a quick weekend getaway. The house/property was appropriately described in the details. A short walk to a private beach was great, as were the restaurants and wineries nearby. Neighbors were friendly, and the fire pit in the back was put to good use every night! Really happy with the experience. We will definitely consider staying here again should we decide to visit SW Michigan in the future.
Thank you for your review, so pleased that we were able to provide you with a great experience.
Beautiful house with plenty of rooms for our whole family. The floor plan was ideal.
We loved staying at this beautiful house. It had plenty of room for all and had a nice location.
Thank you for your favorable review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. If you decide to return to the area in the future we would love to accommodate you and your family.
Wonderful, casual lake getaway
This house had everything we could have wanted for a low key, no frills Lake Michigan getaway. The wagon and beach accessories available for guests to use made our weekend with small children so much easier. The only thing I would want other guests to know is that while the house does have 2 full bathrooms and 1 half bath, only one of them has a shower. If you have 6 or more adults like we did and are on a schedule, that could be problematic. Luckily we were not, so it did not prove a challenge for us. Just wanted to point that out to future guests. Otherwise, it's the perfect lake house.
We are glad you and your family/friends enjoyed your stay at our home.
Just minutes away from antique shops, wine tasting, farmers market, grocery stores, restaurants, park, basketball courts, golfing and zoo(Michigan City) 20 minute drive. Also outlet malls, horseback riding. Great for scenic bike riding.
