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 and watch the sunset over Lake Michigan.  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 bonfire 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 cottage's 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. Rent all 4 cottages grouped closely together for a 10% discount.  (1 night stays do not apply. Bedroom organization: All bedrooms are on the main floor                                        Bedroom 1: 1 Queen Beds                                        Bedroom 2: 2 Twin Beds                                        Bedroom 3: 2 Twin Beds Bathrooms:                      Bathroom #1--Full bathroom with shower only                      Bathroom #2--Full bathroom with tub/shower Bed option: We have a king-sized bed bridge converter for one (1)  set of the 2 twin beds, so if you would prefer that we make a king-sized bed out of the 2 twins, just let us now upon booking and we'll have that set for you upon arrival. (The other set of twin beds are not matched perfectly in order to make the king conversion work.)   Location:   90 minutes east of downtown Chicago, Illinois                   1/2 hour north Notre Dame, Indiana                   3 hours west of Detroit, Michigan                   4 hours south of Traverse City, Michigan FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs) Beach/Swimming:  Walk toward the right  and down the stairs (shared with the next door Brandon Lake House)  in order to get to the private stretch of Lake Michigan beach used by our 4 Union Pier Cottages. Swimming is divine on Lake Michigan. The 2019 Lake Michigan water level is very high. Therefore, the beach is not as wide has it has been in the recent past.  Each year is slightly different when it comes to nature. Normally, there are beach chairs at the bottom of the stairs for use for our 4 Union Pier Cottages. Coffee Pot: Traditional auto-drip coffee pot. Bring your ground coffee. We have the standard filters. Firewood: Yes! We have firewood provided for you under the blue tMore
