This was perfect for our family's mini-vacation. It was very close to the activities we wanted to do, such as Warren Dunes and Lighthouse Place Outlets, as well as local dining, grocery shopping, etc. The cottage was adorable and very clean, with plenty of beds. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, utensils, glasses, pot/pans, etc. The yard was also very nice--we loved the big, old trees!
Cute little cottage in perfect location
We really enjoyed our stay! Located perfectly and very quiet in a quiet area. We are very familiar with the area and love Cherry Beach - cottage was only about 5 minutes away via car. Towline beach is about 3/4 of a mile down the road - a bit too far to walk on the street - and down about 50 stairs to the actual beach. The furnishings are vintage and not the most comfortable, but we didn’t spend too much time watching TV. I agree with other reviews that there is a lot of little stuff all over that leaves no room for travel items. We rounded them up and put them in one place so we could spread out a bit. The cottage could use more usable shelving (the bathroom with the shower has an extremely narrow shelf that makes it practically unusable). The upstairs was a great place to gather and relax. We kept the house cool by tuning on all the fans and the AC unit which worked great. The yard was great - saw some deer - and the outside shower was awesome - first outside shower I’ve used with hot water!!! The shower tended to flood the floor a bit - I think the basin is not deep enough - so put down a towel before using it. We also enjoyed eating in the screened in porch. The kitchen has everything you could need and I loved all the extra towels and pillows. The bedding and towels we all nice quality and the house was clean. We had a question and were able to text Amy who responded within five minutes. I would recommend Grey Hare Cottage and hope to stay again!!

Amazing grey hare cottage!
We loved our stay at the Grey Hare cottage!!! It was a great cottage to stay in for the end of our summer. Cute little cottage on the other side of Red Arrow hwy. We always stay closer to the lake and weren't sure if we would like it further away but it was all great. The cottage is a 4 min. bike ride or drive away from lake. If you walk it is a beautiful stroll down Union Pier Rd to one of many beaches. The cottage was rustic but very cute and had everything we needed. Huge yard that we used to play, relax, eat and made bonfires in everyday. We loved are entire stay at the Grey Hare cottage in the wonderful Union Pier, MI area. We will hopeful be back soon to stay at the Grey Hare cottage! :)
So happy you enjoyed your stay, Emily! Come back soon!
Great, cozy cottage in a nice location.
Great owner, good location of the property with easy access to beaches, shopping, and restaurants. Plenty of room for sleeping accommodations. Great backyard. Wish there was little bit more practical cupboard and counter space for meal prep and more comfortable seating in the living room.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Anna. We plan to purchase more comfortable furniture for the living room very soon. Thank you for sharing this insightful feedback. Come back any time!
Charming little cottage with plenty of room for 10
We had a wonderful stay at the gray hare cottage! It’s close to our favorite beaches, restaurants, and fun shops! We were able to bring my parents up, my mother-in-law and a couple of friends for a couple of days and everyone had a place to sleep! We will definitely be returning!!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Julie! We hope you'll visit again soon!
Union Pier, Michigan is located right in the heart of Harbor Country and is close to beautiful Lake Michigan beaches. Gordon Beach is only a .75 mile walk or bike ride from Grey Hare Cottage. A reservation at Grey Hare Cottage includes a parking pass for nearby Cherry Beach. We're less than 15 minutes away from Warren Dunes State Park & Beach.
We're just .3 miles from downtown Union Pier which includes markets, bakeries and an ice cream shop.
If you enjoy biking, we recommend that you bring your bikes! A lake side bike ride in to New Buffalo for lunch is so enjoyable on a beautiful day!
Wine tours are available as there are many nearby wineries as well as a distillery and a couple of neat breweries.
We highly recommend that you visit the Harbor Country Chamber of Commerce website for a complete listing of area attractions, local restaurants, things to do, and a calendar of events for special festivals and other events. https://www.harborcountry.org/
