About the property

Beach House Heaven! Only 75miles From Chicago Yet Feels So Far Away! Come Relax

Michigan's gorgeous beaches are calling you! Robin's Nest Cottage/House has 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths. Comfortably sleeps 6 in beds (plus full size inflatable framed air bed & inflatable toddler bed). Centrally located in Union Pier just 2 blocks to Whistle Stop & Red Arrow Roadhouse & 3 blocks to BEACH!

This is my own home so it’s not a typical “rental”. I recently renovated it and it’s pristine. It’s a very livable home all one one level with more outdoor areas than you would ever use!


Front deck, rear deck, HUGE screened in porch with dining table and seating area, front yard and fully enclosed back yard with firepit and patio with 8 person hot tub (May to October). Outdoor shower (hot and cold). Gas grill. Very kid friendly home with large playground set in front yard and smaller one in back yard.

INSIDE TIME. All open living with tons of windows & skylights & cathedral ceilings. Flat screen TV with DirectTV plus DVD player. New kitchen with everything you'd need (including coffee maker and bean grinder) and open to large dining area. Living room has 2 couches. Beds are all comfy and all bedrooms have black out shades so you can sleep in if you want!. Central heat/air conditioning. Laundry. Nice bathrooms. All linens including beach towels provided.

BEACH INFO: About a 5-10 minute leisurely stroll to the beach. I have a wagon you can load up with the things you need. I have a few beach chairs but you may want to bring your own as these sometimes disappear from renter to renter sadly.

I provide an information sheet via email with restaurant info, grocery options, beach notes, kid activities, local golf courses and so much more!

Harbor Country is amazing. I fell in love with it 16 years ago and it’s been my second home ever since.

Come check it out. You may end up buying a home like I did! :)

Perfect Vacation in Union Pier!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous rental!! Everything was perfect. The interior space was cozy but roomy, decorated so bright and updates throughout. The huge screened porch was perfect for games and socializing, the kids loved the hot tub, and the yard was great for bocce and badminton. Truly was a perfect week staying at the perfect place. To be that close to the beach and stay in such a roomy and private place was just awesome. Other places close by are tight and close together. You really get the best of both worlds with Robin's Nest -- the space and the seclusion!! Best vacation ever...

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time!! Robin's Nest was perfect for our family. The large screened in porch was great for games and congregating at night, the kids loved the hot tub, and the spacious living space in the house was perfect for our family. Everything was so bright, decorated so beautifully, updates throughout, we really loved it!! To be that close to the beach with that much space and privacy was awesome!

Great property,great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. The house is very clean, the kitchen is new and has everything you need. The location is also great with the beach just a minute away. We spent a lot of time on the screened in porch just relaxing. I highly recommend this property.

Enjoyed by the entire family! Superior home!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Something for everyone! The house is SO nice and much better condition than any rental I have stayed at before probably due to the fact this is a second home that is just rented when not used. Everyone loved the easy access to a private beach (with a wagon to pull all our stuff too!). Our kiddos loved the yard and swing/slide/climbing wall set. Grandparents loved sitting on the screened in porch. WE loved the hot tub and ability to rent bikes and paddleboards so close by. Proximity to Red Arrow Roadhouse for dinner and Nanis for amazing muffins and coffee was an added bonus. Thanks for a wonderful family reunion memory maker.

Perfect home in great location! Love the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and beautifully updated (and fully stocked) house with so much great outdoor space and such an easy walk to the beach. Love the screened in porch and of course the hot tub. My kid loved the yard and the playground equipment. Really comfortable beds/linens too. Will definitely be back!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 4 of 5

The Robin's Nest is tastefully and comfortably furnished with everything you need. I wasn't able to get the hotspot working for wifi (who needs wifi while vacation?) and was surprised at how loud Red Arrow Highway was out front, but the screened-in back porch cut the noise in half. Be aware of the 4-5 trains that go by across the street in the wee hours, too. Once we got used to them, they were sort of charming. The beds are super comfortable and the dining on the porch or at the long wooden kitchen table are both crowd-friendly. Fantastic beach access awaits you after a 3 block walk (one along the highway).

Owner's Response: I wish you had let me know the wifi wasnt working. You didn't tell me until you checked out so I didn't have the opportunity to address this for you. It was an easy fix with Verizon once I knew about it.
