PERFECT SUMMER GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We booked this cottage based on the close location to the beach, and also because of past positive reviews. All of the reviews were accurate! Gorgeous cottage on a nice quiet road, close to the beach. From the start, the owner of this property made us feel welcome. The cottage is beautiful and updated, and nicely decorated. The porch is perfect for having a cookout and hanging out after a long day at the beach. The house is stocked with EVERYTHING you need for the beach which made it nice not having to travel with beach gear. Extra bonus being able to walk to whistle stop coffee and red arrow roadhouse. Thanks for a wonderful week Howard, we will be back!

CHARMING AND QUIET---JUST WHAT WE WANTED!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful cottage had everything we wanted. It was close to the beach and ample beach supplies were provided including towels, chairs, toys, coolers and a wagon. The cottage itself was open and very comfortable. The master suite was lovely, especially the jacuzzi tub! The large deck included enough space for everyone to spread out, as well as, a clean grill for use. Also, the outdoor warm shower was very nice after a day getting sandy at the beach. The kitchen was clean and provided more than enough dishes and other necessary kitchen tools. The Nespresso coffee machine was a delight to use! Lastly, Union Pier is a quaint town and is close to several other lovely areas including St. Joseph which was a fun shopping experience. Also, very close-by was a blueberry farm for picking which was fun for the whole family. All in all, it was a relaxing and lovely vacation. Thank you, Howard for making us feel so welcome.

THE PERFECT COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
Quintessential Classic Cottage was the perfect place for our family vacation! Our family of four (two adults, two young children) felt perfectly at home. It would work for larger families, as well. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and short walk to the beach. Even our 2.5 year old could walk to and from the beach with us (it's that close). The house is decorated nicely and was supplied with all the basics and then some. The owner went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We would definitely visit again!

COMFORTABLE AND WELL-STOCKED, CLOSE TO BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in this well-stocked house. It was quiet, comfortable, and very close to the beach. We enjoyed walking to Red Arrow Roadhouse, grocery stores, and Nani's. Everything else we needed was a short drive away. The house has a nice master suite and two other comfortable bedrooms. This house provided us with the relaxing beach vacation we were looking for!

GREAT TIME AT THE COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is in a great location. Close to the beach, biking trails, a restaurant or 2 and a couple of small markets. We used the beach chairs, cooler and wagon to go the beach. We used the deck everyday for morning coffee, grilling, etc. There is plenty of seating inside and out for dining. The washer and dryer came in handy as well. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. We had a great time!

THE "QUINTESSENTIAL CLASSIC COTTAGE" HEADING SAYS IT ALL

The "quintessential classic cottage" heading says it all
  • 4 of 5
The information about and pictures of this cottage are all accurate. In fact, there is more offered in terms of beach needs than is stated in the description. The cottage is very comfortable. We had eight adults and two babies and there was plenty of room. The cottage is a guaranteed easy walk to Miller Beach which is wide and wonderful. Even on Sunday, the most crowded day, we felt we had enough room to spread out. The cottage is an easy walk to "downtown" Union Pier and The Roadhouse restaurant which is one of our favorites. One of the best assets of this cottage is its owner who is very accommodating. He answered all of our questions in a timely and professional manner. The frog faucets are priceless! Memories are indeed made at this charming cottage!
