About the property

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

Robin's Nest Cottage/House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6 in beds plus full size inflatable framed air bed & inflatable toddler bed) in amazing Union Pier just 2 blocks to Whistle Stop & Red Arrow Roadhouse!

Union Pier, Michigan...better known as Harbor Country. Just 75 miles from Chicago and you feel like you have escaped as you relax on Lake Michigan’s amazing, sandy beaches.

This is my own beach home so it’s not a typical “rental”. I just renovated it in 2014 and it’s pristine. It’s a 3 Bedroom/2 Bath all on one level that sleeps 6 comfortably plus there is an inflatable framed full size air bed and an inflatable toddler bed. Very kid friendly home!

OUTDOOR TIME! The outdoor space is the best – 2 yards, 2 huge decks plus a large screened porch with dining and seating. Back yard is fully enclosed with 8 person hot tub (April thru October) plus swingset/slide/trampoline set. Oh and new hot/cold outdoor shower to wash off after long day at the beach. Deck off kitchen has gas grill. Yard has small fire pit. Front deck has gas fire table.

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 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 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 14 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! :)

Walk To Lake! Updated 3bed/2bath w/Hot Tub/Yard/2 Decks/LRG Screen Porch!
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews


  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with plenty of outdoor space, a big screened in porch and even a jacuzzi! We especially love the large screened in porch for lounging and dining.

Well-appointed and updated, the kitchen is open and easy to work in.

Very comfy beds and nice linens. A short, easy walk to the beach. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly.

The perfect beach home!

  • 5 of 5

I’ve enjoyed 2 incredible visits at Robin’s Nest! The home is beautifully updated and fully equipped/stocked with everything you could possibly need. The home is very well cared for and has personal touches that made me feel comfortable and welcomed. The screened-in porch, decks and yards are awesome extensions to the living areas providing more places to hang out and the hot tub is a major bonus! Just a short walk to restaurants, coffee shops and very easy beach access!! Not only did the rental property exceed my expectations, but so did the owner! She was wonderful to work with, kind, easy to contact and provided helpful information and recommendations. I hope to find time to return soon!

Great house - so much better than typical rental!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great house and all just updated. You can tell it is the owners house that they use because it's so much nice than typical rental. Love the outdoor space with huge yards, decks and screened in porch. Hot tub fun too! Such ez access to the beach. Kitchen full stocked (arguably better than my own!) and beds all comfortable with nice linens. Will definitely come back. Could be good fall get away!
