Awesome Cottage with Awesome Swing Set

  • 5 of 5

My family rented Breezy Lane this year for a week and it was a great experience all around. There was six bed rooms and two bathrooms so everyone felt like they had ample space. There is a huge backyard with a swing set and slide which was great for the 3 year old. We would go down to the beach most days then when the kids couldn't take it anymore we would head back upstairs to the backyard and relax. Dinners we would hit the grill and hang out in the backyard along the long tables till the sky turned a hazy pink. Then we would back inside to put the kids to sleep, watch a movie on the screen and turn in to do it all again. It was a great week and we spend some time exploring the coast line by car to a great state park about 30 mins away called Warren Dunes. Looking forward to renting Breezy Lane again next year!

New playset!

  • 5 of 5

We rent Breezy Lane about once a year. This year we were so happy to find that they have added a great new play set for the kids!! It's large and sturdy and provided hours of activity for my kids while I lolled around on a beach chair reading. The beach, as always, was pristine and lovely. The yard large with room for all of us to spread out and relax. The house serves our needs well with so many bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We love the relaxed family friendly vibe. That's why we keep coming back!

Summer Visit

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Breezy Lane was fantastic! I spent my 30th birthday in Union Pier on a trip there with my boyfriend's family-great way to spend it. The house is conveniently located right across the street to beach access. Big plus in my book, and the house has chairs available to take down there, so we didn't have to worry about bringing all those necessities from Chicago with us. The house itself is very comfortable. I particularly enjoyed hanging out in the backyard grilling, having some wine and enjoying the quietness with the backdrop of the woods. My favorite part of the trip was taking the bikes out with my boyfriend and riding around on the country roads of Union Pier and discovering some cute little markets and coffee shops in town.

I highly recommend renting at Breezy Lane. The house is spacious for large groups, comfortable and perfectly located.

Ideal Summer cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at your place in July of last year and had an absolute blast. Your place was exactly what we needed as an extended family. We plan to come back this year and are very excited.

It was the best of both worlds to have the staircase to the beach across the street as well as having a cottage surrounded by trees for a very secluded feel. A great place for sure!

Privacy at the beach and at the home

  • 5 of 5

For the past couple of years my family and I have rented this cabin in Union Pier. We live in Chicago and it is amazing that an hour and half drive can take us to this relaxing place. I agree with the other poster in that the house is bigger than expected, it keeps going and going. There’s something like six bedrooms there so for our family/friend gatherings it was perfect. The layout of the home has a larger living/dining space in the front of the house with bedrooms in the back so at night, after the kiddies went to bed, the adults were able to hangout. The house is located on a large private lot so we were able to relax outside and let the kids RUN! My favorite feature the house has to offer is the beach. Yes the access path does involve a bunch of stairs so it is wise to pack supplies but the beach itself is not crowded!!! Before we found this spot we rented another home that was on the beach in New Buffalo and I felt like I was back in Chicago because of the number of people on the beach. When I am on vacation, I don’t want to be bothered by a bunch of people. That is why I really like this home, the house sits on a pretty private lot and the beach is not crowded. Plus we like the little food shops in walking distance for easy lunch options. We will be back!

across the street

Enjoy Breezy Lane in the 'Heart of Harbor Country'. Go across the street to a private beach and swim in the pristine waters of Lake Michigan. Or enjoy the immense tree lined back yard by reading a book or playing baseball. Want a change- go to art galleries, antique stores, wineries, rivers with canoes, or an incredible bike ride in the countryside of Michigan. Or maybe it's a day for shopping at the mall, eating at one of many incredible restaurants, checking out a jazz concert, a play or whatever you heart desires. Breezy Lane has it all!!!

Golf: There are nearby golf courses including access to a public course
