Why Cheri Hines or Mary Ellen Swanquist chose Port Austin
We purchased this property because of its sugar sand beach and wonderful over-water sunsets. We are all in walking distance of the cottages so we are readily available for our guests.
What makes this Cottage unique
This property is beautifully landscaped with a large common area. It has charcoal grills, picnic tables and large swings. It affords great sunbathing, swimming, and spectacular sunsets. There is a fire pit on the beach for those late night bonfires with a great show of stars. There are several families that have returned summer after summer for over 40 years.

Everything was great
Thank you for the review!! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Sunset Beach Cottages!
Great cottage with fantastic views!
2 girlfriends and I stayed in Cottage 6. The cottage is even nicer than the photos reflect, updated in light colors and clean as can be.. The grounds are impeccably kept, everything looks nice and neat. The beds were very comfortable. We loved watching the sunsets every evening, and relaxing on the deck.
Thank you so much for a relaxing few days! We will surely be coming back! .
Will definately book again

Thank you so much! We look forward to seeing you again in the fall!!
Great feeling cozy cottages on Saginaw Bay, best for Families, sunsets, and relaxing
Cozy, beautifully landscaped, well maintained, and boy what a great view of the sunset! Cottage was not large but we really enjoyed our time and the atmosphere there. Beach, lake, lawn, and especially the sun deck, were highlights. We would have liked a better shower in the cottage. One example of a great idea is the foot shower at the top of the stairs coming up from the beach. Keep that sand on the beach! Did I mention the sunsets? Magnificent.
