Our brand new, sunny Harbor Country home is surrounded by woods at the end of a private street. 7-day Fri to Fri rental. A Lakeside retreat in the midst of the best of SW MI. 15-min walk from the Union Pier public beach, 5-min drive from New Buffalo & Sawyer, 10-min drive from Three Oaks. There is even a pickleball court outside the front door! Occasional trains only add to the atmosphere. Owners occasionally stay on premises in their separate, upstairs studio.

The space
Rentals at Sandhill House are by the week only from Friday to Friday, May 1st to September 30th. We are open to renting off season by request!

Our photos were taken recently and we will be updating them as the weather changes to better show the lush scenery around the house!
You will enjoy a screened-in front porch with French doors opening from the dining room/kitchen for mosquito-free open air meals.
Our kitchen is made for chefs! It is well-equipped with pots/pans, utensils, etc. - everything you will need to create delicious-ness.
There is also a gas grill on the back deck and fire pit on the patio for easy s'mores access!
If you don't know how to play pickleball, don't worry! It's super fun and easy to learn. We provide paddles and balls so you can give it a shot.
The area is very bike-friendly so bring your bikes!
We have multiple parking spaces available in front of the house, but we do not allow parking on the pickleball court, thank you! There is no parking near the beach, so if you have a ton of stuff, but don't have bikes, you may want to do a drive and drop and then walk back over. We will have beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, and an umbrella available for your use.

Where you’ll be

Lakeside, Michigan, United States

The Union Pier (Berrien Street) public beach is spacious and we've never had trouble finding a place to relax for the day.
There are lots of great places to bike in the area - a favorite trip of ours is to ride into Three Oaks for a breakfast or lunch at Froelich's. Three Oaks is a quaint and popular destination with great shops of all kinds including clothes (French Twist) and antiques.
You won't want for tasty food options: The Stray Dog in New Buffalo is always hopping, Greenbush Brewery has killer barbecue and great beer, and for pizza cravings we love Patellie's. Three Oaks also boasts a super dive bar in Nelson's, and fantastic theaters - the Vickers movie theater and the Acorn for music and stage performances.
Also the house is a short walk to the Whistle Stop Grocery/Cafe (yummy take out) and the Red Arrow Roadhouse. A breakfast fave is Luisa's - just up the road in Harbert.
As for fruit and veg, it is everywhere! There is a farmer's market at Skip's in Union Pier on the weekends, there are mom and pop shops on many back roads, and you can either pick or just pick up blueberries from several nearby farms. For the organic fan, the Granor farm is super close and has fresh veg and events all summer. Lastly, we are solidly on the West Michigan Wine Trail and tasting rooms are just around the corner.

Bill and I love to travel and prefer the sense of home away from home a great AirBnb provides. As such we strive to provide just that to our guests! Both of our spaces were built by Bill himself, architect and lover of modern lines. We enjoy sharing his sense of space with the world!
