Cedar Hollow Cottage: 4 Bed/2 Bath with HOT TUB and steps to beach!

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Cedar Hollow Cottage is nestled among tall pine trees steps from the beach in Union Pier. This home has an open floor plan, with a great room comprised of living room with gas fireplace, dining room and kitchen with breakfast bar. Two large comfortable couches for naps or movie nights.

The kitchen is equipped for cooking. The dining table seats 10. You can easily add another table if you need more space. There are four bar stools at the breakfast bar.

French doors lead to a sunny three season room that can be used for extra entertaining space, additional sleeping space (blow up mattress or couches) or play space for the kids.

The master bedroom (king) connects to a master bath with walk-in shower and jacuzzi tub. Another large bedroom is toward the front of the home (king) as well. The middle bedroom on the main floor has a queen bed.

Upstairs, there is a loft area (twin bed) and the fourth bedroom (full) with a small child bed. The loft area is ideal for a little get-away for adults or children. Great for reading or watching a movie from the library on the small TV.

Please see the floor plans in the photo section to understand the layout!

If you're looking to be outdoors, enjoy a family sized hot tub on the patio off the back deck. This is a great place to grill and eat al fresco- or relax on the huge outdoor sectional couch. The home has an outdoor picnic table and smaller glass table for outdoor dining. If you're looking for a little warmth, you can use the fire pit! If you're looking to escape the buggy nights, you can stay on the front porch- which is screened in (and has a dining table and additional outdoor seating).

Miller beach is a 3 minute walk along Lakeshore and the entrance is more even (not as steep) as the usual Michigan beach stair. Miller beach is a great place to spend the day or watch a sunset in the evening.

The garage is not available for guest use.

Nearby, there are 6 public beaches including Warren Dunes State Park, Silver Beach in St. Joseph (fantastic carousel for kids and adults) and Cherry Beach. Many biking trails. Wine tasting on the wine trail for those who want to sample and drive through the lovely countryside. Several golf clubs close-by. Shopping, antique hunting, breweries, distilleries, casino, great restaurants and art galleries are all within a short car ride.

In addition to rates listed, holiday weeks/weekends have special rates. Inquire for more details.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is the absolute best! I've rented many homes for vacations before, and this is by far my most favorite! I'm very picky and we have five children, and this home met all our needs and wants. It far exceeded our expectations. The backyard with the hot tub and porch is awesome for entertaining. We went to the beach everyday with our five small children and had no problems at all. The walk to the beach is easy and probably less than 5 minutes. The beach is beautiful, and we had it to ourselves the whole week. We saw maybe a couple of families and that was it. All in all, it was our best vacation ever. We made so many memories and we will definitely be coming back next year! My advice for anyone is stop looking and just rent this home!!

The picture does not do this property justice

  • 5 of 5

This “cottage” is beautiful and spacious and is close to the beach in just a very short walk- The kitchen has everything needed, the bedrooms are clean and very comfy!! There is enough yard to play or just have peace- Didn’t want to leave! Can’t wait to come back!!

Memories created!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed coming and staying at this home for the week. Kids running and picking the room in which to sleep put a big smile on my face. Enough space for my family of 8, to sleep, eat and play. Beach was so easy to walk to and only took tops 5 minutes. Miller beach was clean and a nice place for families. Provisions for eating and cooking were plenty, as well as games, movies and beach toys. The hot tub was a great place to just chill and talk about the days activities. I would recommend this place in a heart beat. For those that rent this home and bring a lot of clothes, you might find yourself not having much space to hang your clothes. This house was not built with huge closets in mind, but thats not why you rented this home. Eat at Red Arrow roadhouse great food, and gelato at the Pumpernickel inn.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Ivan! Some additional dressers are in the works! And, the two rooms without formal closets will have train racks for hanging and folding by the fall! Hopefully plenty of room for you to unpack when you come back next summer!

Really lovely house. Comfortably fit our family vacation with 4 adults and 2 children. Well maintained and very well stocked home. Walked to beach 3 blocks away. Also walking distance to corner grocery store and restaurant. Would stay again!

Perfect multi-family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was great--we had 3 couples and 4 kids under 3 years old, and the house was perfect size for the 10 of us. Home was clean, backyard patio/couches were private and well-kept, and hot tub was in great shape, and it was a nice short walk to the beach.

Yellowbird Vacation Rentals was also great--the coffee maker was broken upon arrival and someone came by within an hour with a new one. One note--our welcome email from Yellowbird was right in mentioning that the fridge struggled to stay cold after initially filled for the weekend. But we spread out food/beers using a separate cooler and a bag of ice, and the fridge was plenty cold after 24 hours after filling it.

Great place, great location, great management. Hopefully we'll be back again next year!

Well-designed cottage - perfect for girls trip

  • 5 of 5

There was so much thought and care into making this a fantastic rental and it shows. The owner's design sense is fantastic. It's spacious, and comfortable and made for a perfect backdrop for a great weekend getaway. Short walk to the beach and for coffee and pastries in the morning.
