About The Owner

Scott and Marjolein on train trip to Chicago, (about a 2 hr ride from Union Pier)

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2000

Why The Owner chose Southwest

We have made Harbor Country our home for 24 years and have owned the cottage and my Slipcover Shop for 12 years. The cottage has been updated in 2012 and all new paint in 2016. It's had many happy repeat renters through the years. We really love the area for its down to earth laid back feel but there is always just enough action, friendly faces and entertainment to keep it a little interesting too.

What makes this cottage unique

Explore our area, fruit picking, hiking at state parks, wine tasting in the country, live theater at the Acorn, independent film at the Vickers, fishing, biking, two casino attractions, eating out, resting, tanning, sunsets

It is a lovely place! The property was clean and comfortable. Four of adults, two babies and a dog - it was enough space for all of us. Full kitchen. Nice, private backyard with fire pit. Short distance to the beach...The owner is very nice person. We would recommend this property to our friends. Definitely want to come back next summer!

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the cottage behind the slipcover shop. So cute and peaceful and comfy. We really enjoyed the gas grill and the kitchen was super nice for cooking. We got a kick out of the family of kittens under the house. They are just adorable. We ate at Jimmys our last night and it was terrific. Then we had breakfast the last morning at the Swedish Bakery. It was a lovely visit and we will probably go back to Union Pier again.

As Goldilocks would say, "this one is just right"

  • 5 of 5

This cozy private cottage which rests behind the Slip Cover shop in Union Pier was perfect for me and my young daughter. It was bright and cheerful with a nice color palate and high ceilings in the kitchen...but best of all, it didn't break the bank.

It's very close to everything and the perfect walking distance from the beach to ensure a little exercise.

FYI it does not have a dishwasher or washer/dryer but there was only two of us so I didn't have much clean up and the owner was nice enough to let me do a small mid week load of laundry at the Fabric shop next door.

Thanks so much for the wonderful and peaceful vacation...can't wait to see you again next year...

if not sooner!

DownTown Union Pier

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week at this cottage. Looking for a reasonable comfortable place to stay in Union Pier for a family of four then this is the place. A bike ride to the beach or around town provided the kids a great time. Close to all amenities. Comfortable living room, large kitchen - easy for cooking a full meal, a great deck for grilling and lovely slipcovers from the owners next door store accented the cottage.

You can't beat this place for location, price and comfort and Marjolein is an amazizng grcious hostess!
