Classic Union Pier Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I had a wonderful week in this cottage. The owner welcomed us upon arrival and made sure we were settled. The cottage is well stocked with linens, condiments and cleaning supplies. Having beach chairs and towels is a great advantage rather than bringing or shopping for items after arrival. Have stayed at various rentals and this one provides all amenities along with welcoming our pets. Would love to return.

This cottage is truly a gem near the beach.
If you have a fury friend, this will be the right choice for you!
Howard have stocked all essentials, you don't have to worry about a thing. Supermarket a five minutes driving, no need to bring beach toys or chairs.
Grill is a big plus, rinse off warm water shower is available outside. All you hear is a birds chirping!
Will absolutely recommend!
Planning to stay for next summer for longer period of time.
Thank you Howard! Will be happy to come back!

Stop looking and book it! Fabulous week by the lake with my entire family.

  • 5 of 5
This was our first stay at this particular location and it worked out very well for our entire party. The owner was there to greet us upon checking in and made sure everthing was up and running as it should before we left. This even meant making a last minute repair to the gas grill before he left. He also knew we had toddlers coming so he built a little rail on the steps so my kids wouldn't fall and get hurt....you're not going to get that at a Holiday Inn Express. At it's peak, the house had a total of 9 guests (6 adults, 3 toddlers and 3 small dogs) and we never felt overly cramped at any time. The house is fully stocked with anything you would need (cookware, bowls, silverware, beach goods, towels, linens, detergents, etc). There really is no need to bring anything other than your swimsuit and sandals. The location is idea. You really are just steps to not only the beach, which is the main attraction, but you could easily walk to restaurants/cafes as well. I managed to convice myself that walking to Nani's each morning for a maple bacon muffin was exercise enough to justify the craving......it was vacation! For those in the party interested in technology there is cable TV with a full line-up of channels as well as hi-speed wireless internet. Both of which worked without a glitch during our entire stay. We did use the grill and spend a good deal of time on the patio in the evenings. The warm water shower in the back of the house is fabulous idea. The area was very quiet during the week and did pick up a little towards the weekend. Overall, we had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to enjoy everything that vacation is all about - stress free relaxation on the beach.

Lovely Little Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (and our dog) really enjoyed our stay. Howard was the perfect host and provided every amenity we could even imagine we would need. He also provided lots of helpful information about things to do in the area (State Line Blueberry picking was the best). The house is in great shape, kept clean and well located in terms of walking proximity to the beach and all that is available in Union Pier. Each pre-teen child had their own good-sized bedroom and two bathrooms kept the conflicts to a minimum. There were many pleasant additions (lots of beach gear, beach towels, espresso maker) and the kitchen was well stocked. Thank you for a wonderful week - we will be back!

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!
