Why Laura Stein chose Southwest Michigan

Union Pier Michigan is just over an hour from downtown Chicago but affords a totally different way of life. With a relaxed atmosphere, great restaurants and shopping nearby it has the ingredients for a relaxing vacation close to home.

A great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Laura and Ben for sharing your lovely home! It was much more than we expected. Very clean and feels like home. The house has everything you might need and is a beautiful setting with the pool. The kitchen is fully stocked and has everything you need. We went to a couple wineries, the farmers market, and spent a fun afternoon in the pool. We ate at The Stray Dog in New Buffalo and at Mesa Luna in Sawyer. I highly recommend it, farm to table restaurant, very peaceful. Everything was perfect until our last night when the neighbor across the street started his "explosives" show at midnight in the street. This went on for a long time and was way beyond what we considered a few firecrackers. I feel bad that this occurs in such a lovely peaceful place.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a relaxing girls weekend and that's exactly what we got! The area and property itself are peaceful and gorgeous! We didn't know a lot about the area and Laura, the owner, was so helpful. Everything could not have been more perfect and we were so appreciative!

Clean home, perfect size for girls weekend/family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this home! It is clean, decorated well, and provided everything we needed for a great weekend. There were 6 ladies in our group and we split two queen beds, and two double beds. So easy to get to off the freeway and quick rides to restaurants and the wineries. Also seemed to be set up perfectly for having a family visit as well. We all said we would return to Tranquil Harbor!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a girl's reunion and loved this house. The layout was perfect with the open kitchen, dining, and living area floor plan to spend time together and catch up while not being on top of each other. Kitchen was a nice size for several of us to be prepping or cooking for meals. Everything was comfortable and clean. Dining table is large enough for plenty of folks. Home is located in a great area to walk or run while enjoying the fall foliage. We spent a day doing winery tours and loved having this home to return to at the end of the day. Will definitely keep this home in mind for future use.
