About Marjolein

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

Marjolein purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Marjolein chose Union Pier

We have made Harbor Country our home for 28 years and have owned the cottage and my Slipcover Shop for 16 years. The cottage has been updated 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

Marjolein is a wonderful host. Very accommodating. Our dog loved the yard and going for walks in town and to the lake. The bed was so comfortable, especially after a day of long walks. Will definitely come back again.

Relaxing Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our weekend stay in this Cottage. Only wished we had more days to enjoy it! The beach was a short walk away one direction and in the other direction within very easy walking distance were restaurants and a well stocked convenience store. The owner, Marjolein, was very gracious and pleasant to interact with. We loved our visit and hope to return again!

The cottage is charming! We really liked it!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed the cottage very much! Not too big & not too small. It is very nicely decorated & clean. Everything you need. I liked the location because it is close to the markets in town & the bakery. Morning coffee & pasties just around the corner! I was able to rent things for the beach just across the street as well. Convinently located. The vaulted ceilings made the cottage deal so open & airy. Also loved the outdoor shower after a day at the beach!

Nice little cottage close to everything

  • 5 of 5

For the most part, No car needed here. There's a convenience store and 2 bakery's within minutes away. Also 1 place for dinner nearby. The beach is a ten minute walk and it's amazing. Brought my pup and let her run around early in the morning and late in the evening. The cottage is nice and tucked away with a nice patio. Union pier is close to everything. Within 15 minutes you can be where you want to go. my wife, daughter,dog, and I had a blast. Marj is sos very nice and helpful.

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!
