Overview

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.

We are also a quick drive to the beach! We are 2-3 minutes by car to the Township Line Rd. and Berrien Rd. beaches. These beaches require on-street parking. Cherry Street Beach is about a 7 minute ride, is much bigger and has a parking lot for Township Residents (we leave the pass at the house). You can also take a 10-15 minute ride up Red Arrow to Warren Dunes State Park. Warren Dunes is huge, has an entrance fee, ample parking, restrooms and a concession stand. Or head south 10 minutes to the New Buffalo Town Beach which is also big, has a parking fee, restrooms and a concession stand. This beach is also a short walk to downtown New Buffalo.

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

Lovely home and great experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house was incredible. There was plenty of room for our party of 10, and the house was exactly as described. The dining room and family room are very spacious, as is the outdoor space. The house was very well stocked and the owner was very responsive and accommodating during the process. The owners put together an information book, which was quite impressive. Our group would love to return to this house again in the future!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful for a large gathering of people. We had 14 people stay for the weekend and everyone had plenty of room. The outdoor space is where we spent a lot of our time because the owners have made it such an inviting environment from the lawn furniture, beautiful landscaping and the wonderful fire pit. The owners welcomed us with wine and ingredients for smores which was such a lovely way to kick off the weekend. Our group would come back here in a heart beat. Also the inside of the house is well maintained and the living room area is great for a big group to gather indoors. I highly recommend!

AWESOME HOME!

  • 5 of 5

Cottonwood is exactly as described! It is a charming farmhouse on 2 acres of land. The home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. When we arrived the house was in impeccable shape and well maintained. We enjoyed our large dinner gatherings in the dining room as well as the late night gatherings at the firepit making smores. All in All, a fabulous rental for a large gathering. The owners, Tony and David provided a handbook with places to eat, wineries, beaches, etc. which we found very helpful consideirng it was our first time in Union Pier. Both Tony and Dave are gracious hosts and they were readily available by phone when needed. To Tony and Dave, MUCHAS GRACIAS for a wonderful time! We are already looking forward to another stay next year!

Great Place for Large Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home was charming as described. It is very nicely arranged for large groups--there is always somewhere to escape if you need a break from the crowd, but there are plenty of places for large groups to gather as well. We brought way too much with us--there were plenty of towels, bedding, games, movies, and kitchen equipment. The owners are very gracious and easy to work with--we felt welcomed! We especially enjoyed the Cherry St. beach, New Buffalo and a trip up to St. Joseph.

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We are thrilled with our week-long stay at Cottonwood! We have rented several lake-houses in this area over the last several years. This one is, by far, the nicest. The wood floors, beautiful decor, screened-in porch, amazing backyard (with the perfect set-up for outside meals), and LOADS of space made it a perfect fit for our family. Tony is also a pleasure to work with! We definitely hope to rent Cottonwood in the future! Note: I haven't ever written a review for a rental, so this says a lot!

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!

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.
