Union Pier Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage & coach-house 4 minute short walk to Lake Michigan beach of Gowdy Shores
Have a fabulous beach vacation in this wonderful tree-lined property, featuring two open and airy homes - a cottage and separate coach-house. Both spaces are bright, clean and beautifully furnished. We purchased the cottage in April 2011, and rehabbed the coach-house in 2014. Our family uses the property much of the year, but rent out a few weeks when we can't make it up to Michigan to enjoy beautiful Union Pier!
This is the ideal beach vacation destination a group that needs more than one home - however, we have a strict 10 person (adults and children) limit for both the cottage and the coach-house. Enjoy a lovely vacation in idyllic Union Pier while staying in a charming, unique and spacious property with two structures. Only 4 minute walk to the private beach of Gowdy Shores, access which is monitored by a security guard. Enjoy endless hours on a gorgeous Lake Michigan private beach, which has significantly less people than nearby public beaches [Note: when comparing rentals it is worthwhile to account for whether the rental comes with private beach access (which this rental does) or public beach access - it makes a big difference].
Cottage has 3 bedrooms - Master Bedroom with 1 king bed; Kids Bedroom with 1 Bunk Bed (Twin over Full, with a Twin Pull-Out Trundle Bed), and Back Bedroom with 1 queen bed.

Why Tom chose Union Pier
We also love 'getting away' to Union Pier, a short 70 mile drive, but yet feels like it is a world away.
What makes this cottage unique
Each of the two structures of this property are great in and of themselves. But to find two such great structures in one rental is rare! So this is a truly unique rental property for a family reunion, or two-three families looking to rent one property for a summer vacation. Strict 10 person limit.
The area has many great places to eat and drink. No shortage of things to do, no matter what your taste and preferences for relaxing!
Guestbook comments from the owner
What a wonderful home away from home you have provided us with! This week has been the perfect little vacation for our family, and I think we have utilized every aspect from the deck to the childrens DVDs! Thank you!
