Winter sports: snow mobiling, cross country skiing, and Swiss Valley downhill and snowboarding. What's not to love about Harbor Country! (Check out our other cottage #596860!

Home was perfect for my husband, daughter and I! It was so close to the beach that we walked every day. Also, the fire pit was a lot of fun and screened in porch nice for eating without bugs. My daughter still talks about it and we hope to go back again this year! Owners were very accommodating and kind as well.

I apologize for the lateness of this review. My husband, 2 year old daughter and I stayed at Addie's Retreat for a few days last July. What a wonderful place! The cottage itself was so cute and had everything we needed. It was close enough to ride bikes or walk to all the shops - market, coffee, ice cream. The short walk to the beach really was only 2 minutes. We loaded up our wagon and it was so easy to pull all the gear we needed for a toddler's day at the beach behind us. We definitely recommend this place for anyone and will be returning!

Great location and everything you need in the cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this cottage and it was great. It is close to the beach, it has a nice screened in porch which came in very handy and a fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom is small but adequate. The only suggestion I would make is to maybe put in a gas grill, since a charcoal grill is a bit of a hassle, and when you come back from the beach you want to get dinner ready fast.

Fantastic Mother/Daughter Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My three daughters and I had a relaxing and fun long weekend at Addies cottage. We spent most of our time at the beach, which truly was a quick 2 minute walk. The cottage was exceptionally clean and well equipped. The beds were comfortable. The screened in porch was great for games, and the back yard fire pit looked perfect for late night fires, but we were too tired from our long days at the beach. Alice was friendly and helpful. I would definitely return!

So much to do in Harbor Country! Wander through antique shops and art galleries; sample Michigan wines and spirits (Greenbush Brewery - Journeyman Distillery); Climb Warren Dunes or play a round of golf; enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the local restaurants; or just simply sit on our beautiful Michigan beach. (Check out of other cottage #596860 Viv's Place!! These cottages are next to each other - great choices for families that are spending vacations together!!)
