BEACHFRONT MODERN HOME: BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF LAKE AND BEACH

Union Pier House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The modern cantilevered architecture of the Nest has you literally floating over the dune. This one bedroom, two bath cottage on the beach is stunning inside and out. The Nest caters to those seeking an atmosphere of refinement and exclusivity. Lifelong memories are created here.

The panoramic view is dramatic, and the interior is beach chic, with white slip covered furniture and rich woodwork. The fully equipped modern cherry and granite kitchen includes a washer and dryer. The master suite has a king size bed, jacuzzi, and separate shower. A private deck with a gas grill offers a scenic spot to relax and unwind. Winter offers a cozy spot in front of the fireplace to watch the weather change on the lake. Storms and sunsets are spectacular entertainment.

While the Nest is the perfect romantic retreat for two, we allow up to 4 people in this cozy cottage on either the queen size sleeper sofa in the sun room or the two twin beds in the entrance. There are two full baths. Floor to ceiling windows that open and two open stairways should be considered with small children.

The private association beach is not crowded. There are only 60 leisurely steps to the beach and gazebo. You are minutes from the Four Winds Casino, Redemak's, Oinks, and wineries. There are many restaurants, bars, antique malls, art galleries, and theaters in the area. But why ever leave your private hideaway with the absolute best views in Harbor Country.

SPECTACULAR!!!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! Words can't describe how much we LOVE The Nest! Beautifully decorated, extremely clean and right on the beach! We felt completely at home. Kathleen O'Brien (property manager) helped make our stay super special. Bed was comfortable, shower pressure perfect. Daily walks and lounging on the beach were so peaceful. You can't beat watching the sunset from the lovely Nest. We felt as if we were on a Mediterranean getaway! Would recommend to all!

After spending a long weekend in Chicago sightseeing we were really looking forward to some time to relax and recharge our batteries and The Nest was the PERFECT place to do it! The views are simply breathtaking and you find yourself exhaling as soon as you walk in the door! We spent the majority of our time in the sunroom as the weather wasn't what we'd hoped for, BUT because of the comfort of the furniture and the views it didn't really matter. We got lost in our books and World Cup soccer during the rain and cloudy hours and then ran out to the beach when the sun decided to shine. The beach and Lake Michigan are fantastic! We usually vacation on East Coast beaches, but really enjoyed the clear water of Lake Michigan without any jellyfish or crabs! Simply gorgeous!

The master bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in on a vacation! Our 2 teenage children were with us and took turns sleeping on the pull out couch in the sunroom and the trundle bed. They both said the trundle bed was also very comfortable but enjoyed sleeping in the sunroom the best as they could open the windows and listen to the waves below. The house is spotless and so comfortable, we felt like we were at home. Kathleen welcomed us at check in and gave us all the information we needed for our stay, which was a nice touch!

We spent our evenings in New Buffalo and really liked The Stray Dog restaurant the best. The ice cream choices were yummy too!

We will def. be back and will recommend The Nest to our friends and family too!

The perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5
The lake views from bedroom and sunroom are positively breathtaking. The furniture, household fittings, kitchen and baths are top of the line. This home looks and lives like a beachlover's dream-- light filled, gracious, modern, beautifully furnished with jaw dropping views. You can even enjoy the sounds of the waves without walking down the steps to the beach. But the private beach is great too! Worth every penny, and even better than the photos.

The Nest is a JEWEL !

  • 5 of 5
I booked this amazing cottage as a surprise get-a-way for my husband's birthday. Our first experience with VRBO. From the first steps in booking the property manager, Kathleen, was extremely helpful and patient. Although all the pictures and reviews are fantastic, nothing prepared us for this delightful setting. NO picture can do this experience justice. The afternoon we arrived we were simply in awe of the view. We prepared our own dinner the first night and the kitchen is such fun! Everything we needed was there. Same for the two breakfasts we fixed. The master bedroom is spacious & cozy and we slept like babies with the windows open and the sounds of the lake so close! The fresh flowers in every room and the little gift left for us were appreciated final touches. Each room is spotless and bright ~ just makes ya smile! We had dinner at Timothy's on the second evening of our stay ~ the quality of Chicago's finest restaurant! We were fortunate to have 80 degree weather and glorious sunshine. We walked on the pristine beach, enjoyed the spectacular sunsets and relaxed in the glorious sunroom. Even used the bicycles ~ had a great time seeing some of the other lakeside houses from the little lanes running through the quaint neighborhood.
I hope we have the opportunity to return! (we HAVE to come back to see a storm roll in !!)
Our thanks to the owner and Kathleen for an unforgettable weekend.

My wife and I scheduled this trip for some R&R after a particularly busy and stressful time at my job. It was restful, relaxing, and more. The Nest is FABULOUS! It has everything you need....everything. No amenity is left unattended. The customer service and hospitality of this property owner and property manager team is unparalleled. We will be back, and we're bringing friends!

Relaxing 25th Wedding Anniversary trip:)

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on Sunday and were greeted by the owners who showed us around the property. WOW! What a view! Pictures don't do this property justice. The rental was immaculate and everything we needed was provided. The views from the living room and master bedroom made you feel as though you were on the beach. My wife sat and did puzzles in front of the living room windows and let the cares of the world melt away. There are a lot of great places to eat within 10 miles and I visited the Four Winds Casino several times during our stay. There is great shopping just south in Michigan City, IN and more restaurants to choose from. We went for a drive north along Lake Michigan to Warren Dunes State Park, which was beautiful, but realized that the best view of the lake was at "The Nest". We will definitely be back at this wonderful property.
