Enjoy the sunsets, stroll along Lakeshore Dr., visit galleries in New Buffalo, go shopping at Lighthouse Place, visit the Zoo in Michigan City or just simply soak your feet in the tranquil lake. **Parking is at a premium at our Union Pier location. While we do not have an on-site parking attendant, please keep the neighbors in mind and park as close together, and as close to the cottages as possible. Rent all 4 cottages grouped closely together for a 10% discount. (1 night stays do not apply.) FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Air Conditioning: There is a window air conditioning unit. ATV's: None are allowed onsite. Animals: You will see birds, deer, squirrels, racoons, and of course fish. Bathroom: Bathroom #1: Full bathroom with shower Beach/Swimming: You will walk around another cabin and down stairs in order to get to the private stretch of Lake Michigan beach used by our Union Pier Cottages. Swimming is divine on Lake Michigan. The 2019 Lake Michigan water level is very high. Therefore, the beach is not as wide has it has been in the recent past. Each year is slightly different when it comes to nature. Bedroom Configuration: Bedroom #1: 1 Queen Bedroom #2: 2 Twins which can be converted to a King upon request Boats: There are no boats that come with this rental. However, if you are interested in Fishing for Steelhead (Trout) you can do so in the St. Joseph River (25 minutes from the cabin) in October, November (Kory at Boozer's Guide Service says that November is the best month), December, March and April. Discounted weekend rates if book a guide in conjunction with your lodging. Bugs: Typical Michigan bugs Cell phone service: Good! Distances: * Notre Dame University: 35 minutes (28 miles) * Chicago: 90 minutes (82 miles) * Detroit: 3 hours (170 miles) * Traverse City: 2 hours and 30 minutes (135 miles) Dock: No dock Grill: Yes! Fuel is provided. Grocery Store: In New Buffalo, just minutes away. Handicap Friendly: Yes in terms of there is a very small step to enter the cottage and it is only one floor, however, it is an extremely cozy space and would not work well with wheelchairs. Also, you need to walk down steps in order to get to Lake Michigan. Internet: There is basic internet (wi-fi) service here. Our Internet service is not high speed and does not normally do well with streaming or large files. Linens: Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival. If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let me know, and I'll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets. We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels. Parking: Guests of the Alex will be provided one parking space next to the cottage. Parking is extremely tight. There is not any street parking. Please be respectful the neighbors and not park in front of any other house but the Alex. The only place to park an extra car would be at the Four Winds Casino, in New Buffalo. Pets: No pets are allowed at any of our Union Pier Cottages Privacy: There are cottages right next door. Snowmobiles: Snowmobile trails are open from New Buffalo to Galien. The trail from Galien also extends into Indiana. The trails are well marked with a trailhead in Three Oaks and one in Galien. Visit www.***********/recreation/snowmobile/trails/swl.html for updates on trail conditions. Snowmobiles must be registered and display a 3 year registration decal as well as a current trail user permit decal. In the State of Michigan there is a $25 charge for a trail users fee. This permit is good from October 1- September 30. Permits may be purchased at Knoll Bros Gas Station or Captain Cook's Sports in New Buffalo. The Featherbone Restaurant & Lounge in Three Oaks or the Bungalow Inn in Galien provide snowmobile trail information. You may also purchase a permit by calling the Michigan Snowmobile Association at *******-2285. Space: Ranch style home, cozy. Televisions: Living room has a TV with basic Comcast Cable.
