PARKING SPOTS AVAILABLE: 2 MAX
SORRY, NO PETS ALLOWED
*LAKEFRONT (on Lake Michigan)
*3 cottages surround Sawyer that are also available for rent (None of our Union Pier Cottages accept pets.)
Come stay at a beautiful home on Lake Michigan. Enjoy the open floor plan, 2 bathrooms, washer/dryer, comfortable furniture, fireplace, large windows and a master bedroom with views of the lake, The Master bedroom has cable tv. The main bathroom has a fabulous jetted tub to take away the stress of the city. The screened in porch is attached to the master bedroom and is easily accessible from the living room. It's an ideal place to enjoy an evening glass of wine.
Enjoy the spectacular sunset views from inside and out. It is great for family vacations, romantic getaways for the weekend or family reunions. Whether you are coming to enjoy the fresh air, star-shooting sky or gather around a fire on the beach, the Sawyer Cottage has a lot to offer. Come and create water-filled memories that will last a lifetime.
The Sawyer Cottage is next door to the Brandon Cottage, with separate sitting areas and decks for each family to enjoy. Yes, you are within earshot of each other, so it is fun to rent both places together. Since the walkway leading to the private beach area is in front of the Sawyer Cottage living room window, it is easy to see the walkway entryway. While it isn't commonplace, you may see guests from the other 3 cottages as they use the walkway to the beach. There is a public access point on the opposite side of the Brandon Cottage, so often the other cottages take that shortcut of just 26 steps to the beach. The Sawyer Cottage is situated with a private deck sitting space, with 72 steps down to the water.
The "private" beach is actually shared by 4 cottages (Brandon, Grace and Alex) with a shared walkway to the beach area. This one-story home has the closest access to the walk-out 2-level deck (shared by the Brandon, Grace and Alex Cottages) that will guide you down to your Lake Michigan beach area. ("Private beach" in Michigan means that anyone outside these 4 cottages are not supposed to stop, sit, set up their beach gear and/or have a campfire, etc. on this private beach space. Still, with Michigan Beach Walker laws, anyone can walk through the private beach area, even though it is deemed "private.") . This private" beach area is situated on the shoreline between the Sawyer and Brandon Cottages, directly on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Sawyer Cottage at Union Pier is open all-year round. From the beautiful fall colors in late September to the sounds of the various birds mid-spring, the cottage is perfect for tranquility, rest and rejuvenation.
There are also 3 other cottages that surround the Sawyer Cottage, which makes vacationing with guests or extended family perfect. Come reunite at Union Pier.
** Parking is at a premium at our Union Pier location. While we do not have an on-site parking attendant, please keep the neighbors in mind and park as close together, and as close to the cottages as possible. 2 spaces have been allocated to the Sawyer Cottage.
