Originally from Chicago, I moved to New England in my thirties. When I returned to watch my nephews grow up and looked all around the Midwest and finally found Union Pier. The closest feeling to Cape Cod or Martha's Vineyard I could find! Many fond family memories of my home over the years and I have been lucky to share it with many families.

Five Summers at Lake Shore Breeze

  • Submitted: Feb 24, 2010
  • Stayed: Jul 2009
Going to Lake Shore Breeze for the last five summers has become a eagerly
anticipated event for our family. The house itself is well maintained,
frequently updated, and stocked with anything you might need for a
vacation. With plenty of room, the house easily accommodates one or even
two families with plenty of bathrooms and sleeping areas. Our children
particularly enjoy the "kids' room" which has three beds to easily handle
a "sleepover." The pristine beach, only a five minute walk away, feels
as if it is your own with hardly any other visitors to spoil your picnic
or swim. The quaint shops, quality restaurants, and natural beauty of the
area has provided many memorable moments for our family. Strolling along
the beach during summer sunsets will undoubtedly produce many photos and
memories. We have also stayed at Lake Shore Breeze with friends in the
fall for a totally different, yet equally unique experience, witnessing
the changing colors of the trees that line the roads. We have forged many
traditions on our annual trip and highly recommend this property for a
family or friend getaway

Winter Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 4, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
Half of my family lives in Chicago and half of my family lives in Grand Rapids, MI, so we decided to meet up midway in the heart of winter for a little getaway weekend. We landed on Lake Shore Breeze in Union Pier and are very glad we did.
The accommodations were clean, comfortable and well appointed. There was plenty of room for 8 adults. The house had everything we needed to hunker down for the weekend.
We did venture out to the nearby beach (a quick, easy walk from the house). We spent sometime exploring the surreal ice formations, which convinced us that Lake Michigan is incredible any season of the year.
There are several great shops and restaurants in the neighboring areas that we visited, however, we were so content at Lake Shore Breeze, we spent most of our time catching up in the living room with the fireplace on.
Our weekend at Lake Shore Breeze left us with many valuable memories. We hope to visit again soon!

Excellent Family Property

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Our family group of 11 certainly enjoyed our week in Union Pier. Our rental house was just as described in the listing - clean, comfortable on large grounds. There were no surprises and the house had everything we needed. We enjoyed the ability to have our dog with us. The five minute walk to the beach was even negotiated daily by my 85 year old mother - she certainly enjoyed her time sitting on the beach. The clear waters of Lake Michigan were great and the weather for the week was fantastic. All in all, it was a very good experience working with the owner and we are looking at returning again.

Lakeshore Breeze is a very nice property

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
We had a great stay at Lake Shore Breeze, The house is well kept. The home was equipped with any necessary cooking utensils. We enjoyed spending time on the back patio. The landscaping and plants looked very nice. There was plenty of room in the back yard where the kids played catch and frisbee. The fire pit was very nice to have, we made smores on the fire every night. We spent most of our time at the beach. The beach was just a nice short walk away. The beach was nice and quiet, not too many people around. We enjoyed going up to watch the sunset every evening. The owner was very friendly and helpful in informing us places to visit around the area.

Nothing short of magnificent

My husband & I searched long & hard for a weekend get-away, something within a 3-4 hour drive. Luckily we found this amazing rental. The owner was an absolute dream to work with and had many, many recommendations of things to do. We tried as many of her recommendations as time limits would allow and were pleasantly surprised with all of them. The house is beautiful & very well maintained - the location, absolutely PERFECT. Just a short walk to the beach - we had the window open in our bedroom at night and you could hear the waves gently lapping the shoreline. Strolling through the tranquil streets was a dream come true for our usually hectic lives. Everything we could have possibly needed was provided. We didn't even use the upstairs and we had more than enough room. A perfect weekend get-away! We cannot wait to go back with friends.
