Great location for a trip to Union Pier

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun extended weekend staying here. The location was great--about a 5 minute walk to the beach and not far from downtown Union Pier. Very quick drive south to New Buffalo or north to the Dunes/Sawyer area.

The house itself is quirky but functional. The 3rd bedroom (porch area) doesn't have curtains covering the full windows, so we weren't able to us it for sleeping -- it was very bright in the early morning. The other 2 bedrooms were good and had nice bedding, etc. Nice family room area and dining room area. The kitchen was small but functional. The bathroom was nothing special but, again, functional. We loved the hot tub, air conditioning, and reliable internet! The yard is in need of some TLC, but was fun for the kids to run around in.

Jason was great to deal with. He answered all my questions, had a bottle of wine waiting for us at the house, etc. The dryer wasn't working and he had a repairman out the next day. Unfortunately it wasn't able to be fixed while we were there, but those things happen.

If you're looking for a functional house with standard amenities that won't kill the budget, this was definitely a good choice. Our family had a blast.

Small house but big on charm

  • 4 of 5

House was set up nicely for kids with games and crayons. The hot tub was a great addition. The house has all the old home charm. Bathroom was a little small but we made it work.

Lovely cottage in the woods. I could live here indefinitely.

  • 5 of 5

Our family only could have a shorter vacation. I was so glad to find a comfortable, we'll equipped cottage with nice private beach access for a shorter summer stay. Loved it! Especially the hot tub!

Relaxing family retreat

  • 4 of 5

Family of 4 stayed for a week. We had plenty of space to stretch out and relax. The house and furnishings are as nice as the photographs appear. We enjoyed walking to the beach to swim everyday. The beach is fantastic. We brought our own bikes and rode into town a few times, and that was great too. On the weekend there's farmer's market about half mile away which was really nice. Local produce is AMAZING! It's an easy car ride to any of the local attractions. The only downside was the lack of a dishwasher. We didn't think to check in advance if the place had one before we arrived, but it didn't stop us from preparing home cooked meals daily. We would stay again if the opportunity presents itself.
