MY FAMILY LOVED OUR EARLY SEPTEMBER STAY

  • 4 of 5
I would've scored the place higher but about a third of the dishes were dirty. I suspect it was because the dishwasher needs some "babying" to get it to work well. Perhaps this is a new and by now already fixed problem. I did alert Vilma of the issue.

Vilma, by-the-way, was a great hostess-- very attentive, friendly, helpful in every way.

Aside from the dishes the cottage was immaculate, nicely decorated, and well stocked.

We aim to go back and I'll recommend Union Pier and the Yellow Cottage to friends. Wonderful location.
