Both the original cottage and recently rehabbed coach-house are clean, bright, aesthetically pleasing, and functional. We purchased the property in April 2011, and our family uses the property much of the year.
This is the ideal beach vacation destination for two to three families as there are two separate structures: the original cottage, and a coach-house rehabbed in 2013. Enjoy a lovely vacation in this beautiful, art deco cottage and recently rehabbed coach-house in idyllic Union Pier. 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. Cottage has kitchen, 2 bathrooms (both have showers, and one has a bathtub), dining room, living room with big-screen TV, and screened-in porch. Cottage has HVAC.
Coach-house rehabbed in 2013 has a loft area with 2 Queen beds. Large and open living room has a pullout sofa. Coach-house also has a bathroom with shower, kitchenette with microwave, mini-refrigerator, and large living room with vaulted ceilings, kitchen table and chairs. Coach-house has HVAC.
Coach-house photos are as of January 2014. Siding to go on shortly. We will carpet the loft and furnish the coach-house fully in April.
This unique property has all you need for a perfect vacation including a great screened-in porch, outdoor gas grill, huge deck, large private yard, central air, kid friendly, outdoor fire pit, wi-fi, cable tv, dvd player, desk and printer, and outdoor kids play set.
This property is in a great location for browsing the shops, restaurants, art galleries breweries and vineyards in the area. Other attractions include nature walks, horseback riding, kayaking, running and bike riding.
Minimum one week rental in summer (Last week of June through the end of August). Minimum 3 night rental September & October. No smoking. No pets. No exceptions!
Our family loves living on the north side of Chicago.
We also love 'getting away' to Union Pier, a short 70 mile drive, but yet feels like it is a world away.
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.
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!
