Union Pier House Rental Photos and Description

Cozy for 2 or 12-Trip Advisors #1 for US Travel in

This 5 star home is steps to beach path with a 3/4 acre peaceful yard yet close to everything in Union Pier. Steps to one of the World's most beautiful beaches and to all the activity in Union Pier. Yet, with a 3/4 acre yard and large lot, you have plenty of privacy. Great in all seasons with wineries, breweries, galleries and all the natural beauty!

Decorated to make you feel comfortable but delight in your surroundings. A place for memories for 2 or 14! Two living areas with TVs, for children and adults to all be happy.

Spring, Early Summer and Fall are some of the best months in Harbor Country! Flowers are blooming or turning and by May, you might even be able to go in the Lake. Book open weekends and special rates on any open weeks!

Last year the home was rented every weekend from Labor Day until Thanksgiving!

Wineries, restaurants, spas, casinos, art galleries, and the natural beauty of nature in bloom.

You will feel like you are on Cape Cod or the Hamptons.

With the lake steps away, as well as Timothy's, Noni's and other well known stops.

Our beaches are considered the best in the country, according to Outside Magazine. Several miles to downtown New Buffalo's harbor and shops and restaurants and about seven miles to the Warren Dunes.

Walk the sandy beach path to your breathtaking lake and beach. You are so close that the family can come home for lunch. When the day is done watch the sunset over Lake Michigan and see colors you have never seen before.

Come home to your spacious, yet warm-happy four bedrooms and 3.5 bathroom 'Hampton' like home walking distance to many restaurants, bakeries and gourmet shops. The living room now has two couches for extra seating.

Enjoy privacy with two first floor bedrooms that are KING size and at opposite ends of the floor. Same with the second floor bedrooms with privacy and a room with five single beds! As well as a second floor living room space!

All children love the bright children's room with four twins or three and a queen trundle pop-up!

The kitchen has a bright tiled counter and windows on all sides. Plenty of room to try new recipes with your group

or just grill a simple meal on the gas grill. Lots of seating indoors and out.

There is a deck for dining and huge patio with furniture and landscaping for entertaining and having that evening fire for roasting marshmallows. On colder evenings there is an indoor fireplace. Look out over your bucolic yard. No houses to obstruct your view.

Colorful pottery and paintings will make you feel like you are away at sea. The reviews tell you what a wonderful vacation the two of you or your family will have at LakeShore Breeze!

New hardwood floors! Fresh and bright. It has been described as a happy, cozy home, with a good vibe! Great prints on the walls.

Short Drive to Warren State Dunes Park. (also beautiful in Fall and Winter). Walk to antique stores, art galleries and restaurants. Wineries and new microbreweries. Wonderful biking and bike museum nearby in Three Oaks Michigan-well known for its scenic biking. Hiking nearby. Also, kayaking, dune boarding, wind surfing.

Short Drive to miniature golf, movies, theater, shopping outlets, downtown shopping in New Buffalo-small boutiques. Boating, fishing and skiing.

Or, just enjoy the beautiful beach, lake and home!

Guestbook comments from the owner
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

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!.

Nice Long Weekend

Stayed the long Memorial Day Weekend with 3 adults and 6 children/teens very comfortably. No fights over the bathroom and beds for all. Huge backyard that was great for croquet.

Winter Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
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
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
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

A Lovely Week

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful week at this beautifully appointed cottage. Only a short walk to a lovely sandy beach that was very private and usually deserted. Kathleen was very helpful and easy to work with. The kids bedroom was a big hit with the cousins...all under 11 and girls so they had a grand time! We made s'mores in the fire pit and enjoyed the large deck. The master bedroom was perfect with an adjoining bath for my husband who is disabled. Thanks for a wonderful week and we hope to be back next year! Judy
