'COTTONWOOD' LARGE RENOVATED FARMHOUSE FULL OF COUNTRY CHARM ON 2 ACRES.

Union Pier Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4+ bedroom, 2.5 bath, sleeps 10 in beds and 4 on air mattresses

Located within a mile of I-94 Exit 6, Union Pier. Cottonwood, our rambling old farm house, offers the best of both worlds; quiet seclusion from the hustle and bustle of neighbors and a quick hop to all area activities.

Kick back in comfort and enjoy the space. Our 3000+ square home sits on 2+ acres and has been lovingly restored and updated to provide all of today's modern conveniences while retaining the warmth and charm of a rural homestead. Between the family room, living room, screened-in porch, expansive deck and yards, you're sure to find the perfect spot for a mid-day nap or have plenty of space to host friends for cocktails and a barbecue.

And don't forget the dogs! We've enclosed a 1/2 acre of yard with a three-foot high fence. There's plenty of room for even big dogs to get a workout chasing squirrels.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • pets considered
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hello Tony,



We spoke a few times over the phone leading up to our recent very enjoyable stay at your wonderful house in Michigan.



I wanted to thank you and say how much our entire family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your lovely Cottonwood Farmhouse. The house & the grounds are beautiful, charming, and very well cared for...not to mention super comfortable. Staying there was like staying at the type of well-loved family home that everyone wishes they owned. We never imagined there would be so much greenery, lush foliage, and tall trees. Beautiful. The house is an easy distance from the beach & the local market, and we spent long, fun, lazy days on the gorgeous white sand beach. We both drove & walked the distance. The incredible locally-made chocolate covered ice cream bars at the market are also worth a mention. Yum!! If we did not have so far to travel, I am sure our group of 16 would be back every summer. We had a blast!



Many many thanks!

Ingrid

Ps- please feel free to post the above in your reviews of the house.

THANKSGIVING AT COTTONWOOD

  • 5 of 5
As a whole, our family has rented approximately 15 homes over the last 10 years and we have to say that this is the best home we have ever rented. The house is great and the owners are easy to work with. This is why we returned for a second time.

Our family consists of 9 adults and 7 young children (ages 0-7) and there is plenty of room for everyone. The layout works so well for us. People can eat peacefully in the dining room, while some play or watch TV in the big room, or others sleep soundly in the second floor. It is also very well-stocked. We never ran out of clean dishes, towels, garbage bags, or toilet paper. The beds are all comfortable and decor is very nice. They even have a decent selection of games, DVDs, and CDs to enjoy. Finally, they saved us some bucks by lending us their tasting glasses while we went out for beer and wine tastings!

We would highly recommed staying here!

OUR FAVORITE GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing!! We rent Cottonwood twice a year, every year. We rent once in the summer and once in the winter. We always have the most amazing time! We cook every meal in the house and the kitchen is very well appointed with everything you could need. We spend lots of time outside, the dogs are always welcome (they have a silver water bowl that my dog carries in his mouth the entire time we are there--it is his best friend), the home is cozy and beautiful!

If you haven't thought about going in the winter for a little getaway, I highly recommend considering it! The fireplace is great and we watch movies and play games. We hit the casino one day, but otherwise, we never leave except for a leisurely walk around the neighborhood.

We are a big group and the home (and Tony) accommodates us perfectly! We LOVE Cottonwood!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR SOME WONDERFUL TIME

  • 5 of 5
Ours was a group of 12 adults in their late twenties. The owner Tony won us over with the very first email communication that we had. Very courteous host and very good with the communication and making arrangements for the guests. Though we never met him, I thank him immensely for the absolutely fabulous time that we had at Cottonwood.

Ours was a 3 night stay and we traveled to Union Pier from all over the country. We immediately felt at home in Cottonwood, with all the arrangement and the amenities in the house. You'll find the smallest of the things you think you'd need - just need to look at the right place. The interiors were very aesthetically pleasing. Enough towels, bedding and linens for a relaxed stay.

The home is located within a few minutes' driving distance from all that is good in Union Pier. For any of your sight-seeing and grocery needs, just refer to the House Book!

We intended the vacation to be at least one day's sight-seeing trip to Chicago. But we were all so comfortable [and hung over] every day that we never really gave a serious thought of driving 1.5 hrs to Chicago. Just went to the Union Pier beaches and when at home, we ate, drank and danced a lot. The noise levels from music at night were really high inside the house but I believe we did not let it outside, since no neighbors complained. When by the grill outside, we did keep the decibel levels low and wrapped up by 11 PM.

Overall, all of us college mates did spend a wonderful time at Cottonwood. I'd highly recommend this place to one and all.

COTTONWOOD IS A SLICE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough great things about Cottonwood!

I thought the pictures on Homeaway were wonderful, but they don't even do the property justice. The outside space is fabulous - beautiful landscaping, big trees and several seating areas (we spent about 90% of our visit just hanging on the deck watching the dogs run in the large yard). The house itself is immaculate, beautifully decorated, with lots of cozy and comfortable spaces and a fully stocked kitchen, which we particularly enjoyed. Although the homeowners provide tons of recommendations for places to eat in the area, we ended up doing lots of cooking and grilling - the house is so great that you just don't want to leave!

What I appreciate most, though, are all of the details that the homeowners have appointed to ensure that guests are comfortable and can just settle right in. It is obvious that they love their home, and it shows in every nook and cranny.

I can't wait for my next visit!

BEST VACATION HOME EVER.

  • 5 of 5
My whole family had a great time last week at Cottonwood. There was plenty of room for everyone. The kids had so much fun running around the yard and playing their outdoor games. We are so close to the beach and the restaurants. We want to thank you for sharing this house with us. Everyone wants to come back next year. :)

Union Pier is only an hour and a half from downtown Chicago but is worlds apart. You can head to the beach, golf, bike, and kayak. Go antiquing, tour the vineyards, and stop by a farm and pick your own berries, peaches, apples, and pumpkins. Or enjoy the thrill of a Notre Dame football game, outlet shopping, or the Four Winds Casino.

There are also many weekend events scheduled throughout the year in neighboring towns that are only minutes away from Cottonwood. Be sure to visit the Harbor Country website for a full calendar of concerts, fairs, etc.
