A Cottage at Covington Cove

2007 Guests
What those that came before you had to say.
Our family has been coming to Nancy's cottage,Cottage at Covington Cove for 3 years now and it just keeps getting better and better. The accommodations and beach access cannot be beat.
We are perfecting the art of becoming beach bums.
Last year Kevan enjoyed being a surfer girl catching the BIG ONES.
The waves afforded fun for all. Thx Nancy!

Dear Nancy,
As soon as we walked into your cottage, we became so relaxed. The decorations add a soothing quality that I have not seen yet for a cottage. The cottage is so comfortable and clean.

The less than 1/2 block to the private beach (which was empty) made us smile even more.

I can't explain in words just how we appreciate that others have the same idea of a vacation house as we do.

We had a fantastic time and will come back - most likely again during the less busy season.

Thank you!

Dear Nancy,
Loved it. How could we not?

It is hard to imagine how one stay could have been more relaxing. The cottage was clean, beautiful and comfortable. You have a nice eye for decor.

We 'tasted' the beach from New Buffalo to Saugutuck, but kept coming back home to enjoy the lake/beach by the cottage. Can't beat it!

Sunday marks our 35th anniversary and we have managed to vacation in more places than one can believe. The week at your cottage is definitely on the "A" list.


Thanks again.

You did it again!

Year #4 was as much a delight for me as year #1!

Didn't think the cottage needed improving but the new bathroom is great.

After a rough couple of months, my first day at the cottage was a blissful sigh of relief and relaxation. Slept better than I have for months. What a balm this place is.

Thank you Nancy, for the cottage and for all your kindness. Feels more like staying at a relatives than renting. Soothes my heart.

Sign me up for my "fix" next year!

Dear Nancy,
We had such a wonderful and relaxing time at the cottage!

The beach was fantastic...easy to get to and not at all crowded. The dogs got to go swimming for the first time and loved playing in the sand on the beach.

The cottage was clean and cozy, and had everything we needed. The towns close by were full of things to see and do, and we stocked up at several of the nearby wineries.

All in all, we are very much looking forward to returning to CCC next year and we thank you for providing such a wonderful get-away!

Thanks, Nancy!
Had a wonderful time again this year.

The weather was absolutely perfect and the cottage was very inviting, as always.

This year we spent a lot of time on the beach as it was not crowded at all. We also enjoyed walking to the Whistle Stop each morning for coffee and pastries.

My parents came up for a day to visit and see our "vacation spot" - now they are hooked too!

Thanks again for sharing your place with us - we are already looking forward to next year!

P.S. Here is a picture of Jack enjoying an adventure at Warren Dunes State Park (a few miles north of Union Pier).

Hi Nancy,
We had an outstanding time at your cottage. It is such a restful place!

Great thought and loving care has obviously gone into both the decor and the amenities, there was absolutely nothing that we felt could be improved upon.

We especially enjoyed the beach gear we used (umbrella, child chairs with umbrellas, beach bags, and toys) because we forgot to bring ours; our little Emily had a blast at her very first beach experience because of it.

The water there was crystal clear, and we practically had the beach to ourselves every day.
Your place is immaculate, and beyond beautifully decorated.

Thanks too, for the welcome bottle of wine, and for the "tips" provided for a more enjoyable stay- it made everything we did effortless.

Choosing your cottage truly enabled us to have a "vacation" in every sense of the word.
Thanks again,
Schaffrath Family...Illinois (Summer 2007)
