“Relaxation at it's best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We loved the Blue Sky Cottage! The owner though of everything you could possibly need for a week at the beach. The cottage was very clean, modern and comfortable, plenty of towels, linens, dishes, cookware, etc. We had 6 friends with 2 kids staying a block away and would take turns entertaining in the evenings. Plenty of room for all with the decks and gazebo! Loved the fact that there was a HDMI connect flat screen TV in the living room, we were able to connect the ipad to watch movies! The walk to the beach through the path way is so charming and gorgeous with all the other cottages surrounding it! If you forgot to bring a book to read at the beach, don't worry, lots of great current books/mags all around the cottage! We brought our bikes with us but there are 2 adult and 1 kids bike available and are in great shape. We loved that there was still plenty of room of us to store our bikes in the shed! Walking or biking distance to just about anything you would need. We will definitely return again to the cottage! The owner was very easy to work with and promptly returned emails with any questions we had. Thank you so much for a great week!

“Full of charm and beauty, perfect for a beach getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

After I saw the photos of this adorable cottage online, I sent an email to the owner, Mary Ann. Within hours, she called me and answered all of my questions. My husband and I booked it within a week, and then we had to wait MONTHS until it was time to go. Less than five hours north of Cincinnati, the drive was easy and fast. Stepping into the gardens surrounding the cottage, we were completely captivated by its charm and beauty. The town of Union Pier is quaint and small, full of friendly people, both residents and tourists alike. McKinley beach was a five minute walk from the cottage, and was gorgeous and clean. Everything we needed for the beach was provided by Mary Ann: beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, toys, boogie boards, bikes, even a rake to make our own baseball diamond! I can't say enough good things about Blue Sky Cottage!!

“Savoring a little piece of heaven is closer than you think.”

This is our first time renting a cottage in Union Pier. Blue Sky caught our eye on TripAdvisor, and it certainly didn't disappoint. The space is comfy, and the vibe is similar to living by the sea. It is a short walk to the beach, which is absolutely lovely. It is clean, the sand is a gorgeous texture and the sound of the waves breaking on Lake Michigan added magic to our relaxation. Blue Sky Cottage is well appointed and it is obvious that the owners take great pride and put alot of TLC into the details. The screened patio is a lovely place to relax and enjoy a cocktail while listening to the gorgeous sounds of nature.

The town is small but has interesting antique shops and galleries. It is a short drive to neighboring towns - would recommend exploring.

We recommend bringing groceries as the nearest grocery store is about 14 miles away (Meijers). However, there are a couple of convenience stores carrying produce, cafes and small restaurants nearby.

If you are so inclined to venture out for gastronomic delights, we highly recommend Soe Cafe, which is a restaurant specializing in casual chic comfort food. The focus is local and fresh and it has become one of my favorite places.

So, if you're looking for a no-fuss getaway, where you really feel like you are away from the madness of daily life, but don't want to burn time and money getting there, I highly recommend Blue Sky Cottage.

We will be back!
