Gorgeous House on Private Beach with Stunning Lake Views and Outdoor Space

Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 6 Baths, (Beds for up to 14)

Built recently with the utmost attention-to-detail by an acclaimed interior designer. The main house has four bedrooms with an open floor plan on the 1st floor including the kitchen, dining room, and living room. The finished basement has additional sleeping space for 2 people (2 twin beds) and a large sectional couch . Lake views are visible from almost everywhere in the main home.

Outside you will find a huge deck with an outdoor fire pit, a screened-in porch with an eating area, hammocks, lounge chairs, and tons of additional space for entertaining or relaxing. The property sits on a private beach with 100 ft of lakefront. You will have the beach to yourself all day and can have campfires on the beach every night.

Directly behind the main house you will find an adorable cottage used as a guest house which allows for privacy away from the main home.. The guest house includes its own kitchen and living room with fire place on the first floor. The 2nd floor includes a queen bed, twin bunk beds, living area with fire place, and a bathroom with shower.

This home was built with all high-end material and no expenses were spared. Located in the heart of Union Pier, it's minutes away from popular restaurants and only 10 minutes from downtown New Buffalo.

The description doesn't do this house justice. You have to see it to understand what an amazing property it is. Email for more information or pictures.

About Adam

We've owned this property for over 30 years (we just rebuilt the house) and trust you will love our house as much as we do. There aren't many places that are more enjoyable than a beautiful summer day in Union Pier.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We created memories there that will last a lifetime. The home is so inviting, comfortable, and the views are fantastic! We missed out on warmth, but enjoyed everything anyway. We fell asleep each night to the sound of the waves and woke to the sound each morning. It doesn't get any better then that! We hope to be able to return next year!

Gorgeous House on Private Beach with Stunning Lake Views and Outdoor Space
average rating of 5.0 based on 35 reviews

Stunning well appointed home right on Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

Our annual girls getaway weekend this year was in Union Pier. From the minute we arrived, we fell in love with the home. It is truly stunning. The views are incredible. It has everything you need to relax and enjoy a weekend in Michigan right on the lake. We had a wonderful time inside and out including the short walk down to the beach.

Beautiful property! Can't beat the view and private beach.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this beautiful home and guest home on Lake Michigan. The outside backyard area is positively delightful. The kids loved the beach and playing ping-pong in the finished basement. It was the perfect place for an extended family (grandparents, children, and grandkids) to have a long weekend.

Everything was right about this stay. The location, the views, the house, the amenities. It is accurately portrayed on vrbo and the pictures only begin to do it justice. It's worth every penny and I would easily choose this property again.

Found our Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it the moment I saw it and was equally impressed when I entered. It felt like home - beautiful, spacious,

clean and bright, yet cozy. The main level's open floor plan was ideal & perfect for large families that want to be

together. We all treasured the DR table that could accommodate everybody for all of our meals.

The location, phenomenal views and private beach were exactly what we wanted. We used and enjoyed the gorgeously landscaped outdoor deck areas as much as the inside: gazebo, fire pit, lounge chairs and outdoor

shower. We definitely would love to come back again & again and would highly recommend it to other large

families or groups.

Gorgeous Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and cozy...Great location! Very clean & well maintained. The main level of the house is spectacular!

We love the open floor plan!

With a large family, being able to sit together for all of our meals was so wonderful. We took full advantage of

every inch of the professionally landscaped outdoor deck space. The views of the lake were amazing from so

many rooms in the house and the sunsets were spectacular!!! Walking to the beach was so easy, too! Loved

walking to The Whistle Stop each morning for the newspaper!

Everyone had a great time! We would highly recommend it for a large family or group.

Only bad experience we had...people poaching our private beach from the very near-by public beach :(

Property ideal for warm family reunion

  • 5 of 5

11 of us spend a fantastic extended weekend at this incredible home on the bluffs of Lake Michigan. Our shared meals; visiting in groups or intimate settings; indoor and outdoor fires; game nights; art gallery and brewery visits; reading; relaxing; and hiking were enhanced by the ambiance of this lovely property. We would not hesitate to return to this exquisite location and home. It was a weekend of many fond memories!
