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

A quiet respite

  • 5 of 5

Overall, our stay was enjoyable. The cottage was delightful and all amenities were available. A lot of wildlife in the yard... Bluebirds etc. A big plus were the corner cafes and market within less than 5 minute walk. There was also a beach rental shop on the corner. Marjolein was a joy to do business with!

It was perfect!

  • 4 of 5

This was the cutest, cleanest little place. It was perfect for a short weekend. There's tons to do near by but keep in mind, not walking distance. The host was very personable. I will be saving this place for our next trip.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I LOVED staying here. We wish we could’ve stayed longer! It was a short walk to the beach (which we loved). And there’s cute shops right around the corner. Would definitely come back!

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!
