We had an amazing weekend in Matt's beach cottage. It was cozy and had all the things we needed. We were pleased that it was very clean. My puppy Maddy loved running around in his huge backyard. We will definitely be back to enjoy another relaxing weekend soon! Thanks, Matt!
The Harbor Country Beach Cottage was ADORABLE. My daughters and I were very comfortable during our stay. The decor is charming and the old Chamber oven bakes wonderful cookies! Great area for some beautiful fall walks. Matt was charming and helpful; the neighbor very thoughtful. Highly recommend. Thanks for sharing your place Matt!

From the moment we arrived to the cottage, I knew this was going to be a very special getaway! We actually had the opportunity to meet Matt as he was preparing the cottage for our stay. He gave us a quick tour and instructed where we could find everything and the local places to go. He is so down to earth and personable, and made us feel very welcome right from the beginning. Everything was perfectly appointed in the cottage, not a detail overlooked. Matt is also a dog lover, so even our two pugs were very well taken care of with the dog beds, bowls, and chain outside. This little gem just about an hour and a half from Chicago seems like it is worlds away. The little shops, quaint cafes, and private beaches were exactly what we were looking for to escape our busy lifestyle. This trip holds a special place in my heart as we got engaged on the private beach that Matt belongs to. Matt so graciously offered a complimentary extra night at the cottage for us to celebrate our engagement! I would live in this cottage if I could, it is just that perfect. I would highly recommend this cottage and Matt as a host to anyone. It was a vacation we will never forget!
Wrapped up my 4 day vacation at Matt's place and it was fantastic. "Best vacation ever" in the words of my two sons, 13 and 9 yrs old. Matt was very responsive via text and email. Perfect location near Union Pier and New Buffalo. 15 minute drive to the awesome Warren Dunes. The house was very clean and very well decorated. All appliances were great. Comfy beds. Huge back yard. Friendly neighbors. The antique cauldron, huge patio, and plenty of firewood made roasting s'mores easy and fun. The price was very reasonable. If you're looking for a quiet and beautiful getaway, this is a great option. Already planning the next trip!
Matt's place is fantastic! The location is great, the house is beautiful and perfectly decorated, with incredibly thoughtful amenities, all the way down to the rooster alarm clock!
I would return every weekend if I could! This was my first Airbnb experience and fingers crossed the rest are like this.
Pros: The cottage was lovely! Great decor, beautiful yard with deer, we got a lot of use from the fire pit, Matt's beach chairs, towels, etc.
Cons: The beach was really more than a 15 minute walk and we didn't feel comfortable biking along red arrow highway with no path or sidewalk. It was noisy at night with the train and the neighbor's dog barking. The natural light was nice but it woke our kids up early too.
We had a wonderful stay at Matt's place. The house is comfortable and the garden is really great. There are a few nice places to visit or you can just do the same as we did: almost nothing :-)
This cottage was delightful, as was Matt. We had everything we needed for a great visit, including bikes and beach stuff. The grounds are lovely and the home itself is cozy and welcoming. A wonderful place to visit!
The cottage was absolutely lovely for our girls getaway weekend. It had all the amenities you could ask for, and then some! We were able to cook some great meals on the adorable stove, visit the beach nearby, and spend time lounging in the backyard on the deck and patio.
Matt was a great communicator through the whole process and made the trip effortless. Thanks again to Matt for hosting us. We would all come back again in a heartbeat.
Matt is a very nice young man, friendly and down to earth. Very quiet and clean, hardly knew he was here. Found out he is a AIRBNB Host also with great reviews. Would love to have him back anytime.
