75 Paces to Private Beach Stairs--in Union Pier, Two July Weeks Still Available

Located in: Union Pier
Yes, we really are that close to the beach and we took pictures to prove it. So be sure to check out the last three pictures in our photo album. These pictures, together with our owner's map of Union Pier say it all--we are less than a two minute walk to the beach. (view map, then magnify a few times).

We have DEEDED access to our beach through the Luna Gowdy Beach Association. Our beach is private for the residents of our small subdivision of about 50 homes. The designated beach area is 300 feet of lake frontage, so there is plenty of room. Our beach is seldom crowded.

Another nice feature regarding the beach is that our unit is located on the lake side of Lake Shore Road. You never have to cross that road or any other road to access the beach.

Our cozy condo/cottage (a little under 600 sq. ft.) is one of only nine units, surrounding a spacious courtyard. Our cottage is connected to another cottage. Recently renovated, we kept all of the 1930's charm, but added lots of contemporary comforts.

We loved all of our cottage's wooden, wrap-around casement windows, but we added plenty of skylights as well.

We couldn't part with the original, antique kitchen sink, but we also put in new custom cabinets and brand new appliances.

When it came to the bathroom, we looked for a simple vintage design for replacing the fixtures, but we couldn't resist installing
a Jacuzzi bath tub.

Even though it's cooler by the lake, we thought central air conditioning was a must for when the temperatures pushed too high.

To eliminate those inconvenient trips to the New Buffalo Laundromat, we installed a brand new LG combination washer/dryer (locating it in a bedroom closet, hiding it from view, but
making it very, very handy). Doing laundry now is so much easier. However, we kept our outdoor clothes line up for those who still like to air-dry their wet bathing suits and beach towels.

We wanted fast WiFi, so we installed Comcast Internet along with Comcast Cable TV. Also available is Netflix, Amazon Prime and our small DVD library. We encourage guests to bring their own DVDs for movies and programs that they or their kids enjoy seeing.

We also have a hooked-up gas grill right outside our back door---no propane needed!
Now how convenient is that?

Our cottage includes two parking spaces (designated on--street parking) and a huge outdoor common area (actually to the side about 35 paces from our back door) for picnicking and ball playing and of course, the use of our spectacular Lake Michigan Beach (personally, we think our private Luna Gowdy Beach is one of the clearest, cleanest and best beaches in Union Pier!).

Besides being so close to Lake Michigan, we are an easy walk to the Whistle Stop Grocery and Deli and the Red Arrow Road House Restaurant (3 to 3 1/2 blocks).

We think our cottage is wonderful, but please keep in mind that our cottage is not a party house. Our cottage is much too small for a wedding or family reunion or any kind of party with lots of people. Also keep in mind that we only have parking for TWO cars.
