Union Pier Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

East of Eden is the perfect cottage for a romantic getaway or a fun-filled family vacation--in all seasons. The cottage has been impeccably restored and has it own private yard. It is a large one-bedroom, with well-equipped kitchen, full bathroom, and a beautiful open air living room with vaulted ceiling and skylights. After a beautiful sunset over Lake Michigan, come back and snuggle up with a good book next to the fireplace.

Inside and out, our cottage is the perfect retreat. Nestled amoung 100-foot tall Norway Spruce pines, it is only a block to your own private 'singing sands' beach of Lake Michigan. Union Pier beaches are the softest and widest in SW Michigan! And, it is only a block and a half to great little bakery and breakfast places, coffee and latte shops, unique restaurants and even fine dining. Or you can just stay at the cottage, sit on the front deck, grill your own favorite fare and watch the passer's by.

We are centrally located in the heart of Union Pier just off of the main road into town. Easy to get to, and easy to go to other attractions such as the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, various seasonal Art Fairs, Fruit Farms, Antiquing, or just 'Heading up the Red Arrow Highway'.

Cozy, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very nice long weekend at Union Pier, with East of Eden as our home base. The cottage is just the right size for two adults. With a single bathroom I would not recommend it for more than a family with very small children if at all. We had our 55# Lab with us and he was quite comfortable, although the nearest dog friendly beach was some drive away. The cottage is very clean, nicely updated and thoughtfully equipped for an extended stay. You can get peace and quiet prior to the end of May but we suspect after that it's going to be a lively place. The owners were especially nice and we felt as if they are loaning us their cottage for the weekend.

Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at East of Eden the first week of August, had a great time. Cottage was cozy and clean, nice short walk to the beach. Parking in front of house was full the afternoon we arrived but we never had a problem after that. Owners were great to work with, would stay here again.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved East of Eden! Everything was well maintained and decorated nicely. The beach was wonderful and our kids loved it. Lots to see and do. We thought the kitchen was easy to work in and larger than it looked in the pictures. The owners were very easy to deal with. We hope to come back again next year.

Perfect Vacation for Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and had such a wonderful time! The house was great for our family and dog. Everything was clean and the house was well taken care of and perfect for our 9 month old crawling daughter, nothing for her to get into once we blocked the tv. The room was really big with plenty of space to set up a pack and play. We loved eating out on the deck and watching all the people go by. The house was stocked with everything we needed to cook. The walk to the beach was like 5 minutes. I would recommend taking the street way if you have a stroller as the pebble path can be bumpy. We walked to the ice cream shop at the end of the street every night. Our dog Gotham was very happy too being able to look out the front doors since they were all glass, especially when we didn't lower the shades all the way the first night and a critter came up on the deck! Owners are very nice and easy to deal with. We loved it and will be back for sure.

We are so happy you had such a wonderful time and that the cottage lived up to your expectations. It is always our hope that everyone finds the cottage clean and well taken care of, as well as finding how easy it is to get to the beach! We love the front porch too and it is so fun to see people walking by and enjoying the day! Thanks again for taking your time to write a review. We can't wait for you to stay with us again!
