RELAXING AT THE SHOREWINDS

  • 5 of 5
The home was perfect for our girls weekend. Very clean and artsy. Loved the landscaping, fire pit, and electronic start fireplace. The home is equipped with everything you need for the home and the beach. Jim and Joan were easy to be in contact with through emails or phone. We had the most relaxing weekend on the beach... would definitely return !!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your candid comments! The Beach House has been specifically designed for RELAXATION and creating good memories on the waterfront! Landscaping is executed with passion and a carefully trained eye!
Our Fall escapes are awesome for biking and experiencing the changing leaves while the Winter Solitude is amazingly tranquil for snow shoes on the beach, cross country trails in the dunes or doing nothing at all in front of a cozy fire place. Each season takes on its own persona and the home gracefully transitions itself as a four season retreat. Shorewinds awaits your return!

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location for a sisters weekend! Nicely decorated, very comfortable beds. Very close to lake just a few hundred feet and minimal stairs. We had a beautiful warm spring weekend, got to lounge at the lake. Owner was friendly and quick to respond. We have rented numerous times in this area and will definitely be back to "Shorewinds"!

ONE OF THE NICEST HOMES WE'VE EVER STAYED IN

One of the nicest homes we've ever stayed in

The cottage was just as the pictures depicted. Immaculate, well-decorated, inviting and equipped with many amenities. In addition, there were many helpful items are clearly labeled and easy to find and use. We were able to arrive and immediately flow to the activities that we came for: walks on the beautiful beach, chatting as a group in a cozy outdoor setting, listening to music and talking into the night. We visited several great restaurants and many quaint antique shops, as well as an apple-picking excursion. Returning to the cottage was a pleasure. We slept well every night, with plenty of room for the four of us. We will definitely be coming back to Shorewinds.

BEST MICHIGAN VACATION!!

  • 5 of 5
Our Stay at Shorewinds was just delightful!!! We truly enjoyed our week. The cottage is charming, absolutely clean and well-kept, and filled with all the amenities to make for a perfect week of relaxation and fun. It is just a few steps to the most beautiful beach ever and the weather for our week was just perfect!! We enjoyed the shops in town (especially Nani's Muffin Madness).

We tried many of the eating places in town and in New Buffalo and enjoyed them all. After beautiful days on the beach, watching the beautiful sunsets on the beach in the evenings was a magnificent experience for city folks.

We would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and other family members and are looking forward to returning next year.

MY VACATION AT SHOREWINDS

Our Vacation week at Shorewinds was truly delightful. The cottage is absolutely charming, well kept and well stocked with every amenity. The weather was absolutely beautiful for the entire week. The lake front is just breathtaking and we all just had such a relaxing and enjoyable time. We enjoyed all the dinning in the area (especially Nani's Muffin Maddness). I would definitely recommend this property to anyone choosing a vacation in Michigan and we are looking forward to returning next summer.

Enjoy the best of what Harbor Country has to offer. Shorewinds is ideally situated in the highly desirable lakeside community of quaint Union Pier. You can take a morning stroll for gourmet coffee and freshly baked pastries and then enjoy your treats sitting out on the porch before stepping down to the beach. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure sunning, swimming and sitting by the water. During your stay you can visit wineries and art galleries, go antiquing, and berry picking. Dine at restaurants such as the highly acclaimed Timothy's, a short walk down Lakeshore Road or the landmark Redamack's for a hamburger and shake. Or just kick off your shoes and leave your footprints in the sand, get lost in the glow of a fiery sunset, doze off with the warmth of the sun on your face. We invite you to begin a new tradition. To imagine having it all.

Come for Harvest Days and Octoberfests. Pick your pumpkins and fall decorations at Dinges Farms. Bike ride the back roads with marked trails by Three Oaks Spokes. Photograph flora and fauna.

Other Activities: snow shoeing, cross country skiing on the dunes and state parks.

Ski: Snow shoes are furnished at the cottage for our guests' use at no extra charge.
