Tessi's Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We booked this cottage last minute because there wasn't anything else available for a a family of 4. I was a little worried it would be too small. It was a wonderful surprise. Tessi's cottage was clean, nicely decorated, and bigger then the photos show. Plenty of room for us. We were 1/2 block to 2 beach accesses and walking distance to groceries, cafes and restaurants. The sunsets were amazing!

Lovely little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Pretty little cottage, very nicely laid-out and furnished; spacious, open and well-outfitted kitchen. Clean and well-maintained, comfortable beds, plenty of extra towels and linens. Systems (heating, air conditioning, plumbing) work well. Private patio, functioning fireplace, hot tub, reliable wireless as advertised. A couple of downsides: (1) the listing and photo do not make clear that this is not a stand-alone cottage but rather the end unit a "triplex" whose sound insulation could be better: guests in the master bedroom could hear the crying baby in the middle unit and the yapping dog in the other end unit through the night; (2) location is great on a quiet street paralleling the lakefront: easy walk to 2 nice public beaches and a couple of restaurants, good bicycling - but the view and "front porch" experience are marred right now by major development/renovations on the properties across the street: denuded landscape, large trucks, piles of materials (bricks, paving slabs), lots of dust, sometimes noisy. All in all, though, it's a charming place, clean, comfortable and well-maintained, in a (mostly) great location, at a reasonable rate, and we'd certainly stay there again.

Harbor country is an eight community enclave along Lake Michigan's Southwest shoreline. Rated among the best & warmest in the state, our local beaches provide 2,000+ acres of unspoiled, sandy shores. Union Pier is approximately 1.5 hrs from Chicago and 3 hrs from Detroit. Harbor Country is romantic and picturesque with its lazily winding roads, majestic sand dunes, pristine forests, and acres of vineyards. The towns are quaint & family-friendly, populated year round by a mix of locals & visitors. Local shops, art galleries, and antique stores appeal to the sophisticated collector and casual shopper alike. Harbor Country is home to numerous award-winning wineries which regularly offer tours and tastings. Outdoor activities include golf, kayaking, fishing, swimming, boating, bicycling, hiking, cross-country skiing, ice skating, hunting, and snowmobiling. Everything here is casual, even dining in one of our famous restaurants; you'll find that every day in Harbor Country is a vacation.

Other Activities: kayaking, CC skiing, snowshoeing, whitetail deer hunting, chartered fishing, boat rentals, dune surfing, wine tasting & winery/ distillery tours
