My wife and I have rented around the Union Pier area for 32 years. We actually rented one of these places back in 1982 and fell in love with the location (nearest the beach) of these cottage. We decided to buy one in 1992. when one was for sale

Steve Simms purchased this condo in 1992

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 had a wonderful time in this property. The owner went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly, and was always very helpful with questions or when contacted. The property is very close to Lake Michigan ...one can get to soft sandy beach in a few minutes walk. The neighbors are friendly, and the property is welcoming and cozy. We highly recommend!!

Beautiful little cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (2 adults, 4 kids ages 3, 3, 12, 14) stayed for a week at the end of June 2014 and this is the ultimate place to relax without breaking your budget. We had plenty of room for our family and the short walk to the beach was excellent for us with two little ones. Property was clean and well-maintained. Some pretty bad storms came through affecting the WiFi, but owner was quick to get the problem fixed for us. I have told many friends and family members about this nice little gem we found on the lake! Lots of things to explore in the area with kids, but one of our favorites was the New Buffalo Township Park and Sprayground! Our little twins played for hours there and it was all FREE :) It was nice to drive 5 minutes to New Buffalo and explore a nice little beach town with lots of shops, grocery stores, and ice cream places. Good restaurants all over town, but we liked grilling out and cooking at our condo. Lots of little gas stations where you can pick up bundles of firewood and we had a couple of fires right on the beach. This is an excellent place to just relax and hang out on the beach. Walmart and other major stores are only about 15 miles away if you need to venture away. The extremely cold winter had the water temperature a bit cold at only 62 degrees this year, but it was still fine for the kids to play in and they didn't seem to mind after diving in the first time. A tip for everyone on that note is that with the warm temperatures and cold lake water, it could be a bit foggy in the mornings and sometimes into the afternoon, but we would drive inland a mile and it was bright and sunny on those days. We also made the hour drive to Chicago one day to explore the city, the Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier, and some Chicago pizza.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
This location can not be beat! Just stairs to the gorgeous private beach! Very comfortable beds and an awesome shower! The owners were a joy! The cottage is very well equipped. There was nothing that we were without! They provided wonderful beach chairs! Very comfortable and relaxing cottage! The cottage is located in a beautiful setting with gorgeous flower lined streets. We enjoyed many relaxing walks around the neighborhood as well as to the Whistle Stop coffee shop. We loved the beach! We enjoyed many days at the beach playing, watching sunsets, and having campfires. Union Pier has many cute stores and restaurants and many more only a few miles north or south. We went kayaking and standup paddleboarding in New Buffalo at Galien River Kayak Rentals and our sons (ages 12 and 15) loved Captain Mike's Fun Park just up the road in Bridgman. We loved eating at Smokin Woody's in Sawyer for BBQ. There is SO much to enjoy and do for all ages in this area! I loved it so much and didn't want to leave! Thank you so much for the use of your cottage. It was a blessing to have that time with our family!!!
