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.

The Space

Shorewinds is a second home , therefore, it has many amenities that normal rentals would not have. The guests experience the beach front as my family and friends do. I leave plenty of pots, pans, dishes, serving items, 2 grills ( gas/ weber) , beach toys, beach chairs and umbrella, out door seating. Extra towels and linen for your use. A washer and dryer and...

Do not hesitate to book this charming cottage. It is immaculate, tastefully decorated, and nicely equipped. We rent often, and the difference between a good rental and a great one is the details -- like large, fluffy towels, ample spices, salt, pepper, coffee and filters, quality bed linens, and good lighting. The fire pit was a nice amenity as well....

We had the best time in this quaint, cozy, wonderful cottage! From the nicely landscaped yard that camouflaged the road, to having coffee in the morning on the deck, to the nautically decorated interior. Everything we needed was thought of and provided for. The lake was just a short walk away. (There were stairs leading down to the lake). We...

Thank you for your 5 star review. We work very hard at keeping the cottage charming. We think we have the best little piece of property as our garden gate opens up to the beach path. Once outside of the garden gate, you have views of the water. It is a short 150 paces to the landing and the beach...
