It's no surprise that this stunning cottage has been featured on HGTV, and in Lonny, Cottage Living, and Bungalows & Cottages magazines - with its stylishly rustic touches and comfy 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 one of Domino’s “20 Designers to Watch”), this home offers the best combination of beauty and comfort in the heart of Union Pier.
The cottage exterior greets guests with a charming wood picket gate and an award-winning garden featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Upon entering, patterned floors and a charming palette provide the utmost in cottage comfort. Two queen bedrooms are perfectly appointed, in addition to a generous bunk room. The main bedroom/bathroom features a stand-alone claw foot 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 lake house 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 rinse away the sand after a long day at the beach. 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!
Returning guests will notice gorgeous updates that include a new metal roof, new backyard fence, new porches, new chairs for the firepit, and new windows for the garage sunroom.
Access to the beach is just a short trip away. 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.
