Picture yourself in the heart of Lake Michigan, staying in this charming four-bedroom cottage. This home is just minutes from the beach and quaint Union Pier shops and restaurants, and is located in the popular Lakeshore Cottage community. There is a private association heated pool, plus a rec room that ensures fun is just a short walk away. It is a great place to swim, sunbathe, and enjoy the Michigan summer! Lakeshore Cottage has an open floorplan with vaulted ceilings and skylights. The comfy living area is situated around a beautiful fireplace with a TV. The kitchen, fully-equipped with all the amenities you need, opens up into the dining area. You’ll find a beautiful wood table with seating for up to eight guests. The main bedroom features a king-size bed and shares a bathroom with the second bedroom that features twin bunk beds. The third bedroom on the ground floor has a queen bed and shared attached bath with a walk-in shower.

The fourth bedroom is a loft over the garage, accessed by a separate stairway in the garage. It can function as a bedroom or as an additional recreation space complete with WiFi and a cable TV. It is furnished with two twin beds and a double futon that is a perfect hangout for older children. In the garage, you'll find a Ping-Pong table and beach toys. The front porch is ideal for relaxing and the screened back porch is the perfect place for a little outdoor dining on warm summer evenings. Step outside to grill up some burgers on the grill or some s'mores over the firepit. A half-mile walk through a quiet neighborhood will take you to the Union Pier beach at Townline Road. In this home, you’ll find it easy to sit back, relax, and enjoy all that Michigan has to offer!

Please note that if you are booking the home between the months of September through May, we ask that you please verify with the agent that the association pool will be accessible. The pool is set to be open from Memorial day weekend through Columbus Day weekend.

The home is in a great little neighborhood, very convenient to everything. We had 7 in our group and one more bathroom or half bath would have been very helpful.

Great home, very clean and modern. Enjoyed our week away!

This home is worth the money! Great amenities provided. We made use of the toys, the smart TV, the extra blankets in the closets, the towels, and much more. We planned to use the pack-n-play and when we couldn’t locate it, the area manager delivered us one within a couple hours. Some of our favorites were the screened-in deck area, the fire pit, the grill, the upstairs jacuzzi bathtub, and of course the pool. Most times we went to the pool it was just us, or we were sharing it with 1-2 other families. It is kept at a perfect temperature too. :) There is plenty of space to spread out and nap, and also plenty of room to gather the whole family together. We would absolutely book again! Thanks for the wonderful accommodations!

We stayed during the week and loved the quiet neighborhood and proximity to the beach. The cottage itself was clean, well stocked, and had all that we needed. Will definitely come back!

I've seen other comments on the cleanliness of this house, so I will start this review by saying someone must have listened because the house was clean (thankfully). However, I have seen others mention about noises in the house and those have NOT been resolved. There is a humming sound throughout the house and we could not determine where it was coming from. You can only hear it inside the house because we checked outside thinking it was coming from another house in the neighborhood; it was that loud! It is highly disturbing and is much worse on the first floor, especially the kitchen, family room, and master bedroom. There is also a loud, popping sound in the master bedroom that does not stop! EVER! We barely slept the three nights we were there because the humming and popping were so loud.
Lastly, I don't mind starting a dishwasher before I leave. However, I have NEVER had a place ask me to strip beds and start a load of towels in the laundry. If this is standard VACASA policy, I will not stay in another place hosted by this company.
Manager response:
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to hear your feedback about your time with us, Debi! We appreciate you bringing this to our attention so that we can take appropriate measures to find out what is causing the humming sound. Rest assured that we will follow up with our local team regarding your feedback. Please know that our Guest Services team is available 24 hours a day to assist should any questions or concerns arise prior to arrival or during your stay. Thanks for staying with us, we look forward to hosting you again!

Location is beautiful but you can tell the owners don't care about you feeling welcome. There are rules posted everywhere but not a single recommendation for local attractions or even a map to the beach nearby.

It wasn't very clean. As soon as you sit down you can see dusty items under the coaches, chairs and tables. Nearly every cup and glass were coated in white gunk.

And the house is really loud. The sliding door creaks like it's breaking when you open it. There's a vacuum like sounds that goes on all the time. But there's no note of warning or earplugs to make it more comfortable.

And beware of the fireplace which is set up so that logs can just roll out of the fireplace.

And finally, if it snows expect to shovel the whole driveway yourself unless you want to wait all day.
Manager response:
Tara, thank you for your review, we sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced during your time with us. We value cleanliness and safety very highly and are disappointed that your rental home did not reflect these values. We will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience to discuss preventative measures and ensure the continued enjoyment of our future guests. Thank you!

You would benefit from a thorough cleaning in the house. The carpet in the bedroom is dirty.
I liked the house, but it needed more cleaning.
Manager response:
Thank you for your thoughtful review, Loui. We sincerely apologize for the cleanliness issues that you experienced in our home and we thank you for taking the time to share this valuable feedback with us. We have passed your comments along to our local manager to review with the housekeeping staff to resolve for future guests. We hope to have the chance to better impress you in the future!

Chose this house based on pictures and location of house in relation to town and beach. Stayed for a week with family including adult children and an elderly parent. Pros: Great location, pool in community, comfortable beds, large upstairs bath. Cons: house had cobwebs everywhere and sun room was very dirty, upstairs bannister very wobbly and dangerous, master bath (downstairs) shower doors are broken, only one TV in entire house, 4th bedroom is above the garage with no bathroom. Very expensive and would not rent again.
Manager response:
Hello, Renee. We are sorry for any issues you encountered. We encourage guests to reach out to our 24-hour customer service team so that we can assist in correcting any problems during their stay. We understand that you were simply trying to enjoy your vacation and may have felt hesitant to bring forth complaints at that time. We appreciate your feedback, and the opportunity to address these concerns with our local team. Please know the issues in the home have been addressed and rectified by staff. We hope to host you again in the future for a more enjoyable stay.

This house was great for our weekend getaway. The kids loved the ping pong table and all the fun hide-and-seek spots in the house. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the community was lovely. A nice short trip from Chicago!
