Stunning Cottage w/Private Hot Tub/Washer/Dryer/Free WiFi/Patio - Close to Beach

It's no surprise that this stunning, three-bedroom cottage has been featured so much in Lonny, HGTV, Cottage Living, and Bungalows & Cottages magazines - with its stylishly rustic touches and cozy vibes, the Leo Cottage perfectly embodies Harbor Country’s curated, casual aesthetic. Designed and owned by the sought-after firm of Kate Marker Interiors whose work has been recognized by Architectural Digest and Luxe Home and touted as Domino’s “20 Designers to Watch,” this home offers the best combination of beauty and comfort in the heart of Union Pier, MI. The area is known for its mom-and-pop bakeries, destination design stores, woodsy gravel roads, and pristine Lake Michigan beach access. There are plenty of biking paths, vineyards, and distilleries within a short distance that draw families and couples throughout the Midwest.

The cottage exterior greets guests with a charming wooden picket gate and an award-winning garden, featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Upon entering, patterned floors and a charming palette with three bedrooms provide the utmost in cottage comfort. Two queen bedrooms are perfectly appointed and a generous bunk room, complete with two full-size beds and two twins, comfortably sleeps up to eight. More guests can be accommodated by a queen sofa bed in the game room. Three full baths complement the spaces nicely. The main bedroom/bathroom features a stand-alone clawfoot tub for the kids to bathe in after a day at the beach, or for enjoying some private time with a glass of wine. The main living area features vaulted ceilings and rustic exposed beams that lend a dramatic aspect to the space. Perhaps the greatest features of the home are its two wood-burning free-standing fireplaces, one in the front Family Room and the other in the main suite.

The Leo Cottage kitchen has been updated to include many modern amenities while still retaining a vintage lakehouse feel, with newly-installed kitchen cabinets, appliances, lighting, and faucets. You'll love preparing tonight's vegetables in the generous farmhouse sink! The well-equipped kitchen includes an ample center prep island with bar stools for entertaining, plus a breakfast area with booth seating. The dining options extend to the outdoors with a large furnished patio and a well-appointed screened-in gazebo to keep the bugs away. Accents of rattan, rope, natural fiber, whitewash, and shiplap contribute to the home's Lake-Michigan-vacation themes. Guests will also have access to a private hot tub (a great place to unwind), and an outdoor shower to spritz away the sand after a long day at the beach. Two adult bikes and two kid-size bikes are included, as is access to the beach just a two-minute walk away. The Leo Cottage comes with two portable beach chairs and a Ping-Pong table in the garage for some family entertainment. With so much to offer, this home is sure to provide your family with beautiful and lasting memories!

Every time we come to the Leo Cottage, we never want to leave. It`s truly a magical cottage. You feel yourself relax as soon as you walk into the place! Every detail is a special little treasure. There are so many living spaces to enjoy from the breakfast nook to the kitchen to the game room. The master bedroom is a dream with the most comfortable bed and linens - makes it easy to stay in bed all morning!

Cozy cottage with most everything you`d need. Comfortable beds, lots of linens, adequate kitchen. We loved being able to use all of the various cottage gathering places at the same time; it kept everyone happy!

We were sad to have cut our long weekend short due to work commitments but we loved our two nights at Leo Cottage. It was a quick drive from Chicago and we really felt like it was a nice break. The yard is exceptional.. a quiet retreat with the birds and the gardens. The interiors were amazing. Bunk bed room for kids was fab. Thank you!
