Three Sisters Cottage is a luxury class private home nestled in the woods in Union Pier, Michigan, just 90 minutes from Chicago in the heart of Harbor Country. Located in the resort community known as Gowdy Shores, the cottage is a block and a half to a wide sandy homeowners' association beach on the sunset shore of Lake Michigan, where the beach is designated exclusively for the use of Gowdy Shores residents and their guests. Designed by noted architect John Hurst and featured in numerous 'shelter' magazines including Dream Kitchens, Three Sisters Cottage features a total of six bedrooms.
The upstairs master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a private bath with Kohler fixtures-- two pedestal sinks, cast iron claw-foot tub,and large ceramic tile shower. A second bedroom upstairs has two trundle beds. Two main floor bedrooms (queen and full sized beds) each have their own private bath as well. Two upstairs bedrooms in Pine Cone Cottage, the attached guest quarters, each with a queen size bed, share a bath with ceramic tile shower, as well as a guest kitchenette with a sink, mini-fridge and microwave. Pine Cone Cottage also has a small sitting area with a vcr/dvd and a private balcony overlooking the Secret Garden.
The main floor of Three Sisters Cottage is an expansive open space featuring a chef's kitchen with a Viking 8 burner stove with griddle and double oven, huge double door refrigerator, dishwasher, farmhouse sink, copper prep sink, granite countertops and huge center island. There is also a butler's pantry with a prep sink and extra dishwasher. The kitchen opens on to the dining room, where a ten foot custom-built cherry table (made from one of the trees on the property) seats up to 16. The living room features seating for 16 on comfy cottage casual furniture. Two screened porches, one for dining and one for sitting, flank the grill deck with outside counters, sink and a monster Viking grill.
Enjoy the firepit on a cool evening or find a sunny spot in the yard for morning coffee or slip away to the flower filled Secret Garden for a glass of wine before dinner--both are fenced to provide security for your dog. Swim, sun or walk for miles on the sugar sand beach, then rinse off the sand in the outside hot shower before slipping into the hot tub in the Secret Garden. Three Sisters Cottage is perfect for groups of family or friends--plenty of space to spend time together but many private areas for reading, snoozing or quiet down time.
Located in the heart of Harbor Country, Three Sisters is just minutes from hot local restaurants such as the Red Arrow Roadhouse and Redamak's, or visit the nearby butcher shops, farm stands and bakeries--you can even walk to the weekend farmers' market-- to create your own feast. Check out the local brews at Greenbush Brewery in Sawyer or local whisky at the Journeyman in Three Oaks. Hunt for treasures at Harbor Country antique shops, rent bikes, kayaks, jet skis and other toys for the Lake or... just sit back and relax. There's always great fun at Three Sisters Cottage!
