Union Pier, Berrien County, Michigan
Shorewinds is a delightful beach house on the Lake Shore of Lake Michigan. The property site is unique. It has its own garden gate which leads one down the beach path to the steps of the beach. There are no roads to cross between the home and beach. You are approximately 150 paces to the beach steps. It is an ideal location for the guest who wants to be next to the beach while having the luxury of going back and forth to the home for lunch, refreshments or bathroom needs.
