LOVE "THE BRANDON," AT UNION PIER.

Love "The Brandon," at Union Pier.
  • 5 of 5
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at "The Brandon." There is no place like the shore of Lake Michigan to kick back, recharge and relax.

This lakefront home is very well equipped with anything you need. The beds are comfortable, bathrooms well stocked and the kitchen is equipped with the latest appliances. It's great to have a nice pantry to store groceries and food you bring with out of sight. Having laundry facilities is definitely a plus.

This is a dream home, very clean and nicely decorated. The sunset view over Lake Michigan from the deck is absolutely breathtaking.

This is a well-managed and maintained property. The property managers we dealt with were very responsive and helpful in all aspects. It's also a nice location with several good restaurants nearby and located close to the 94 expressway. We really enjoyed having a private beach just steps away off the deck.

I can't wait to return to Union Pier and to this location and have already recommended The Brandon to friends. We are from Chicago but live in Michigan. This is the perfect location to meet up with our Chicago friends and family.

AMAZING LOCATION AND FABULOUS HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Several friends and I stayed at the main house in April. The weather was chilly but perfect for cooking meals in the enourmous kitchen (all needed pots/cutting boards/utensils provided) and drinking wine near the fire-place. The property was very well maintained and the house beautifully decorated. Even though it was a little cold, we took a walk on the beach (right outside the back door) and into the cute little town for coffee, about a mile.

I could not have asked for a better vacation house and cannot wait to go back again!

INCREDIBLE COTTAGE WITH FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I love the Union Pier area and decided that this would be the perfect place for an informal, fun wedding. We searched Home Away for a cottage that would suit our needs: space for guests, rooms to sleep our family and friends, and a gorgeous backdrop for our wedding. We saw these cottages online and contacted Vilma.

When we came to visit the cottages for the first time we were overwhelmed with how beautiful and relaxing this place was. Each cottage was clean and beautifully decorated. You have to visit to understand how charmed the cottages are: the courtyard has a quiet sitting area adorned with ivy and flowers, the decks offer unobstructed stunning views of Lake Michigan, and the open layouts of each cottage created warm, welcoming spaces. You will not want to leave.

The cottages were very well equipped with supplies for the large meal that was cooked for our guests on site. The beds were comfortable – too comfortable, as some of our families slept in on wedding day! There was plenty of everything you don’t think of: towels, kitchen utensils, firewood, toilet paper and much, much more.

Vilma, the leasing agent, was just as incredible as the cottages! She was extremely accommodating (even for a detail obsessed bride!). Her personality was sweet and fun. Over the course of a year she took time to meet us at the cottages to let us wander through and make sure that we had all of our wedding details covered. She made us coffee, offered her suggestions and the equipment the cottages had in storage (including chairs, tables and an extra fridge for all the dessert). The day we checked in, she spent extra time making sure the cottages were perfect. She even made sure the cottages had pumpkins and mums to celebrate fall. She really cared about us and it showed in so many ways. She is one of the nicest people that you could ever hope to meet.

The wedding at the cottages went off without a hitch: there were Round Barn beers and wine in the courtyard, a ceremony on the deck, a delicious dinner in the New Cottage living space, and a bonfire on the beach. It was beautiful we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to host our event here. We know that the word “wedding” would scare many home owners from renting, and we considered it a privilege to be trusted with these beautiful cottages for a long weekend.

Highly recommended. Thank you for a vacation that we will never forget!

THE PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a girls weekend at this vacation rental in Michigan and it was amazing! The house is as gorgeous as it looks in the photos.

It is an easy trip from Chicago, a short drive from I-90, right on the lake with beautiful views. The furnishings were beautiful. The first floor's open layout (kitchen, dining room, living room) is ideal for socializing with a group of people. The kitchen was fully stocked. The rooms slept our 10 guests very comfortably. The bathrooms were beautiful as well - the heated tile floors in the cold winter were a great touch. There were plenty of clean linens and towels.

The leasing agent was very friendly and easy to work with. She even brought us some firewood for the fireplace! We all left hoping that we could find another week to return this year!

GREAT WEEKEND AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent the weekend at the New Cottage with friends to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. It was the perfect setting! The floor plan allowed everyone to be together from preparing meals to playing games in front of the fireplace. The view of the lake was beautiful even on a cold December day. The walk along the beach - refreshing. It could have been better stocked with cooking dishes and pans and a little more firewood would have been good also. The rental agent was great to work with and very accomodating. The beds and baths were clean and comfortable. Loved the heated bathroom floors especially on the cold December mornings. I have been home less than 2 days and I am trying to figure out if I can rent it agian in a few months to celebrate my birthday. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone wishing a relaxing and well appointed place to get away and relax. It exceeded my expecations!!!
