At Apple Blossom

We’d Love to Help You to Create The Event of Your Dreams!

Apple Blossom Resort is a one-of-a-kind luxury rental property featuring three homes and extensive outdoor space on a private 18-acre estate in SW Michigan’s idyllic Harbor Country, just 70 miles from Chicago.

With sleeping accommodations for up to 48 guests and outdoor event space for up to 150 guests, Apple Blossom Resort is an inspired site for events that are fun, modern, and laid-back.

The property’s adaptable layout makes it an ideal home base for celebrations that unfold over several unforgettable days. Our unique location lends a secluded vibe to every occasion while being moments away from all that this special region has to offer.

The Estate

The sprawling 8,000 sq ft estate was designed to accommodate private gatherings that feel intimate, relaxed, and elegant. Modern construction, thoughtful design, high-end amenities, and personalized touches ensure that our guests experience the comforts of home in a boutique setting nestled in the woods near Lake Michigan.

The custom-built Main House features 7 spacious bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and a sleek open concept chef’s kitchen/great room perfectly suited for intimate receptions, rehearsal dinners, and day-after brunches. 

The Guest House provides an additional 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms that are ideal for guests who benefit from additional privacy. Combining rustic charm and contemporary design, The Cabin is a tucked-away sanctuary for the wedding couple.

Our specially-designed 6,000 sq ft astroturf area with 40 ft x 80 ft pole tent creates a flawless canvas for outdoor ceremonies and receptions.

    “We feel like luckiest couple to have had the chance to be married at Apple Blossom Resort. We had a vision of having an intimate, small, family wedding where everyone could spend the entire weekend together in a location that was relatively easy to get to (from family both in-state and out-of-state), and provided us with an intimate but modern space. As soon we learned about Apple Blossom, we knew it was perfect!”

    “This was, above and beyond, the most spectacular and memorable weekend my family has ever experienced. The Apple Blossom has it all..and then some! We rented the property for a 3-day family reunion/wedding celebration. All 30-35 houseguests staying on the property for the weekend were ‘over the moon’ with the immaculate facilities, not to mention the impeccable service-level from the property owners, Meg & Jorge.”

    “We couldn’t be happier with our stay at Apple Blossom. It was a great setting for us to have our smaller wedding. We had a beautiful outdoor space for dinner, dancing, and drinks. Throughout our stay guests were able to enjoy the relaxing pool and hot tub, play tennis or basketball, and warm up by the fire pits at night. The rooms and common areas inside were also very well done, spacious and comfortable for everyone. Everyday was a fun and unique experience at Apple Blossom.”

    “The Apple Blossom property is a hidden modern gem in Union Pier, near New Buffalo, MI. My husband and I booked the property for our small, intimate wedding and we could not have been happier with our choice. All guests who attended stayed on site – enjoying the beautiful bedrooms with on suite bathrooms (main house), gorgeous chefs kitchen, multiple fire pits, heated pool, hot tubs, tennis/basketball courts and beautiful surroundings (which made for beautiful pictures!).”
