Explore Elephant Walk, a dog-friendly compound, walkable to beach and town, designed to make memories for your group. This is a listing for our Cottage 5, which offers 1 bedrm and 1 bath. It is a stand alone cottage but on the same grounds of the resort where there are 4 other cottages that offer full kitchens/bathrooms/living spaces and house 1-2 bedrooms each as well as a Main House, the anchor of the property, which houses 4 bed/3 bath. Host your large event/reunion here!

The space
*COVID 19 Update 10/31/20: Please note that our cancellation policy for 2020 allows you to cancel up to 24 hours prior to arriving only if anyone in your party has COVID symptoms/a positive test. For those without symptoms, please cancel asap to avoid cancellation penalties. We have implemented new cleaning standards per CDC guidelines that I can provide specifics on if you are interested. Once you book, it becomes something I send along with our check in documents. Thank you, stay well!*

We allow large group bookings only (Main House + at least 2 cottages) until January 1 of each year at which point we'll open up the calendar for anyone to reserve the house and cottages separately and allow for instant booking. Please message us for details, and we will respond within 24 hours.

Much work has been done to this compound since we bought it in Jan 2019. Stay tuned to this as we will update pictures as changes are made as well as provide more updates we'll make over the coming years.

**Everyone must review the rental agreement which is comprehensive: lists the terms of the rental agreement, the dog waiver (if you are bringing a dog), provides suggested packing items, lists the hot tub rules (for Main House only).

**Please designate upon checking out if you are bringing a dog. I will then need to email you our dog waiver and you'll have to pay a dog fee outside of Airbnb, which doesn't allow for easy collection of such a fee. It is $50/dog for stays of 3 days or less, $100 for stays of 4+ days.

**Note that Cottage 1 shares a wall with the far hallway corner of the Main House and one wall with Cottage 2. Cottage 2 shares a wall with Cottage 1 and with Cottage 3. Cottage 3 shares a wall with Cottage 2 only. Cottages 4 and 5 share no walls as they stand alone on the property. All cottages have a pull out couch, and the Main House has 2 pull out couches, one in each king bedroom.

**From Memorial Day to Labor Day we require 3 night minimum stay, but a 7 night stay (Fri-Fri) is required in the heart of the summer, from June through beginning of August unless the week is already broken up.

**Well behaved dogs are welcome. Pets are required to be on leash outside of fenced yard, and you are required to pick up after them or fee will be assessed.

**Note our suggested packing items we provide right before your arrival. Starter paper towels, toilet paper, and garbage bags are provided but you'll have to bring your own after the starters. We don't do this because we're cheap or insensitive. We do this because we are not often in the area to run these kinds of things over, and we also like for guests to be respectful of the environment which we've noticed happens more often when guests bring their own disposable supplies. Thank you for your understanding!

Thank you for visiting, we hope you choose Elephant Walk for your next group get-away! Email us with any questions, and we'll answer any questions within 24 hours.

My husband, two kids and I live half of the life in hustle bustle of downtown Chicago working, going to school, running to keep up sometimes. Until we go to Michigan only slightly over 1 hour away in the car to get back to nature, breathe pure air, rest, relax, be present. Both Chicago and Union Pier, MI offer amazing places to live in both worlds...grateful!
