Quaint home, a few querks which need to be worked out!

  • 2 of 5

Very quaint home, have tried to update several things in the home, yet the a/c in the bedrooms upstairs have a very difficult time keeping it cool at all. Fans were not much help. Great bedding, towels, utensils, etc. provided. Patio very well provided enough seating, etc. Kitchen has no dishwasher! Refrigerator worked very POORLY! Lost our milk, cream and did not keep items cool very well. Two of the porches were furnished, yet very hot during the day to even spend time out there! We utililzed several local businesses, very nice! Quite a distance to walk to the beach!

Cute house in Union Pier

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini-family reunion at the house. The house is appointed well, with all the utensils, towels, bedding that you may need. The

house has a lot of sitting areas where we could spread out. The back yard was great. It is fenced in and has a fire pit, propane grill and a hot tub. There were a couple of trains a day, but the kids loved watching them.

A suggestion would be if you are arriving after dark, to ask the outdoor lights be turned on for your arrival, as it was DARK and difficult to

get into the house if you don't know the way around the house.

We had a fabulous stay and would recommend it as a good location to anchor your Harbor County vacation.

Surprising! One of the best spots and great interior.

  • 5 of 5

Just 0.6 miles from the great beach is the large house called the White House. [Pardon the number of times I use the word great]. It has a great eat-in kitchen, three porches, two dining rooms and two living rooms (with wi-fi) on the first floor. It is very kid friendly. Then combine all the chairs in the kitchen and you have a cozy and quick meal. That floor is very well appointed with everything you'll need: cooking stuff, utensils, towels, beach chairs, games, soap, toilet paper. Name it they have it including complimentary soaps, etc. The outside porch has plenty of chairs, a hot tub (costing $250 to clean after every family leaves ), a grill and a fire pit for s'mores. There are five bedrooms; one down and four up. There are two bathrooms; one up and one down. A/C is great; however because of the intense heat this summer the upstairs rooms were warm but big box fans helped. Daniellle is an attentive owner whose phone number solved a few questions (where is switch for the ceiling fan?). Overall, we'd come back again.

A delightful place for our family to vacation

  • 5 of 5

The White House at Union Pier was walking distance to Lake Michigan.

The home was well equipped and featured a great patio for the family to gather, hot tub, grill and play games.

There were many rooms to relax and enjoy, a game room, TV room, living room for conversation, and dining room.

Our experience was very positive and we would recommend Danielle and her property.

Good times at the white house

  • 4 of 5

We went just after the 4th and it was very warm for Michigan, Our family had 12 guest ranging from 9-59 the white house has some nice updates and a lot of room, 4 bedrooms upstairs are nicely sized and have comfortable beds. I slept downstairs and the bed was very comfortable. The house is spread out which is nice to get away from family members that bother you. The back of the house is very nice, The Weber grills gas and charcoal very exciting, a lot of chairs and space to sit and eat. My kids loved the hot tub, and the beach is a short 10-12 min walk. New buffalo is 4 miles down the road for a little shopping, bigger beach area and boat rentals. We rented a boat for 6 hours and if you haven't been on lake Michigan in a boat its a must do. We got lucky for the boating experience smooth water and overcast skies. The White House is an older farm house with some nice updates and some old school charm. There is not a dishwasher so bring paper plates. Overall a good experience and Danielle was great to work with.
