This beach front cottage offers the beautiful sunsets of the summer and the clean sandy beaches of Western Lake Michigan. Our 3 bedroom 900 square foot cottage has been the owners residence for the past 15 years and 2008 is the first year offered to our guests. Situated on 5/8 of an acre this heavily shaded property offers open space of lawn to play baseball or croquet, or to just sit in the arbor, drink a cold lemonade and enjoy the fabulous country wild flower gardens. The stairs to the beach are fifty feet away where you can situate yourself on the expansive private beach area (patrolled on weekends to keep strangers off), or just place your beach chairs on the public beach side. If you need a break from the kids, we offer a babysitting service so you can enjoy one of the fine local restaurants, or have a Certified Red Cross Life Guard watch your children at the beach while you enjoy a nap on our hammock in the shaded, breezy back yard. Both services available at a nominal charge.
If you have stayed in Union Pier before, we are located at the public beach access! There are 2 small cottages between us and the beach. It is all about the beach in Union Pier. The beaches never close on this side of the Lake because of pollution or high bacteria count. Many Chicagoans make their way to Union Pier to train for The Chicago Triathlon, where it is easy to swim a mile without bumping into anyone and bike one of the designated bike routes through Three Oaks and cycle 25 miles without navigating around automobiles or roller bladers...Additionally it is worth making the drive to Warren Dunes State Park and Mt Baldy to view some of the nicest and largest sand dunes in the United States.
