My husband and I traveled here from Chicago with out 3 year old Boxer dog (about an hour and fifteen minutes from downtown).
It was a great relaxing weekend. The house is really comfortable and top of the line in every way. We loved everything about it. Plenty of space, a great kitchen and bathrooms, and several different areas to sit and relax (both inside and out). Our favorite of space to hang out was the big screened in porch and we spent a lot of time out there. The constant running water sound from the outside fountain was so relaxing and the furniture so comfortable, we never wanted to leave.
We also really enjoyed the Union Pier area. Walked to beach and to get coffee in the morning, strolled through the neighborhood, drove to Warren Dunes State Park to visit the dog beach (about 10 minutes by car), and found everything we needed within easy walking or driving distance.
Can't say enough good things about Paul, the owner. So easy to work with and very responsive.
Would stay here again in a second.
