Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during our week-long stay! Our 2 young children were just as comfortable there as we were. They loved the outdoor shower and water fountain frogs! The wagon made carrying our beach items so much more convenient. The house was the perfect size for our family of four and had everything available that we could possibly need! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Comfy, Quaint and Spacious

  • 5 of 5
Our travel party included 4 teens and a dog, yet we had plenty of space to spread out in this house. It was so comfy and homey, some days it was hard to get the kids out to explore! The furnishings have been switched around from the posted photos so that the tv/living room and dining areas have swapped places. This makes the master suite surprisingly peaceful and secluded so that the kids' late night laughter didn't interfere with the adults' sleep. Howard has the place well stocked with bedding, household cleaning supplies and condiments. He is so attentive, that he even had a dish of candy out to greet us and he emailed us links to local weather sites and listings of dog-friendly businesses. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and the beaches are clean. We enjoyed the Sunday flea market, Warren Dunes and even separate girl/guy day trips to Chicago via Amtrak (only about $30 round trip). We were also pleasantly surprised by all the vegetarian options we had at local markets and restaurants. Our week here was a nice mix of adventure and total relaxation. We would LOVE to come back here again!

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!
