Awesome week!

  • 5 of 5

If your goal is relaxation and beach time, this is the place! The floor plan of this home is open and updated. Two private bedrooms and two sofa sleepers provide plenty of options and a cute loft has room for another inflatable mattress if needed. The kitchen and baths are well-supplied with everything you may need including towels and paper products. Don't overpack! It's probably already here! The small shed even has a wagon and plenty of beach toys! Beach is a ten minute walk through the shaded neighborhood. (Note that there are several steps down to the beach if someone in your party needs accessiblity.) A small grocery store, coffee, restaurant, and gelato shop are also within walking distance. This home is so clean and John was great about responding quickly to our questions. Five stars all around!

Over-priced, damp, outdated

  • 2 of 5

We have stayed in Union Pier several summers and love the area. We had walked by Meadowlark many times and decided we would spend the extra money to stay there this year. We were disappointed in the quality of the accommodations for the price. The cottage was damp and smelled like it needed a thorough cleaning (especially in the kitchen sink area). Most of the furnishings/bedding/pillows/kitchen knives/pans seemed faded and worn. Several floor boards need shoring up. It may seem like a small thing but there were a million light switches - simply labeling these would have gone a long way toward making the place more hospitable.
