2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 7, Unlimited Memories!

Cottage Provencal has been in the rental business for over 15 years. The owners take pride in providing a beautiful cottage for a relaxing and memorable visit. The cottage is less than a block from a wide sandy private beach where you can walk for miles, swim in beautiful Lake Michigan or relax on the shore while sunning. The cottage sleeps up to seven people. It is perfectly situated to visit local farm stands, wineries, restaurants, ice cream shops, pumpkin patches or state parks. Plan a weekend to attend a Notre Dame game in nearby South Bend.

No matter the season, you will leave the cottage feeling relaxed and rejuvenated with memories that will last a lifetime!!

Fun family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Cottage. We had a minor issue while staying and Kristy was accessible and assisted immediately to resolve. The beach was great, hardly anyone there except us!

Our young son loved the movie and book collection.

Thank you for a wonderful week away!

PErfect beach cottage and pet friendly too!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has virtually everything you want for a perfect beach vacation. It is situated within a few feet of a beautiful, private beach, with magnificent sunsets and fire pits for a lovely evening activity. It is beautifully decorated, incredibly clean, has very comfortable beds and high quality linens and towels. The kitchen is fully stocked and there are plenty of great board games, movies, and books to use. There is a lovely and sizable screen porch to enjoy your morning coffee or to have a pleasant evening meal. There is also a nice grill for use.

The cottage is very close to a fabulous state park with magnificent dunes for climbing and more beautiful beaches. It is also close to great bike trails, fantastic restaurants, nice art galleries and lovely boutiques as well as antique shops to explore. Don't miss having some of the best root beer floats you will ever experience at the darling malt shop across from Warren Dunes entrance. Once you vacation at Cottage Provencal you will want to return again and again.

Great weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was a very comfortable home for a Family Girls Trip. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the location. My only complaint was the amount of beach space for the number of people. Although, there was empty beach on both sides of us, we were not allowed to spread out. There were about 40 people crammed into a very small space trying to enjoy the beautiful weather. The owners of the beach next to it made sure to tell everyone that they were not allowed to cross an imaginary line on the beach. This being my first trip to this area, I was surprised at this concept and a little disappointed. We were there over Memorial Day weekend, so the weather was nice, but not quite summer. I would be concerned about visiting during the heat of summer if you want to stay on the water.

Charming, cozy cottage near the lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a couple of days over Thanksgiving at this lovely little cottage with our dog. The location is great, just a short walk to a nice beach, and close enough to stores and restaurants that we didn't feel isolated. The cottage is spotless, and equipped with anything you could want on a vacation--books, games, cooking provisions, cable TV & internet, ample supply of fluffy towels, and comfortable beds. Unfortunately for us, the weather was pretty miserable, but it was a nice spot for reading and relaxing away from home. We did manage to take a few walks along the lakeshore road, which was enjoyable.

Beautiful getaway and home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

As always, we thoroughly loved our vacation at your lovely cottage! The beach was relaxing and a wonderful place to spend time unwinding from our busy lives in Chicago. We had some amazing meals, having taken advantage of local markets and farms. Highly recommend the Three Oaks Spokes folks for renting cruiser-style bicycles, and loved taking in a movie at the Vickers. We always say a special prayer at the end of every visit, in hopes we are able to come and stay at Cottage Provencal again next year!

Car: necessary

There are so many things to do in Harbor Country!! Have dinner out at Casey's, Red Arrow Roadhouse, Skips Restaurant & Catering, or Stray Dog...just to name a few! Feeling lucky? Hit up Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo. Need to relax? Book a massage at Revive Spa in New Buffalo. Thirsty? Visit Greenbush Brewing Company in Sawyer which is a local microbrewery or Journeyman Distillery in Three Oaks which is a craft distillery focused on organic whiskey & spirits. Having dinner at home? Consider visiting LOCAL where their philosophy is 'source & showcase the tastiest meats, cheeses & produce the Midwest has to offer'. Also a MUST visit is Union Pier General Store located on Red Arrow Highway. The General Store is Union Pier's premier organic market.

There is always, always something to do: traveling down Red Arrow Highway to visit the numerous Antique shops, winery tours, Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, back road bike trails, kayaking, birding, fishing, charter boat & scooter rentals or golf. We recommend to our guests to visit the Harbor Country Chamber of Commerce Website prior to their visit see a listing of all activities scheduled during their time of stay.
