Why Choose Firefly Resort?

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

There are an abundance of accommodations in Harbor Country, which can make finding the perfect one for you difficult. Never fear! We can help make the task easier.

Firefly Resort is located in Union Pier, Michigan – about 75 miles from downtown Chicago. Not too far but just a long enough drive to transport you away from the bustling city and into a beautifully relaxing area of Michigan.

There are 18 charming cottages, with either 1 or 2 bedrooms. All of the cottages come fully furnished with amenities so you don’t have to bring anything extra. The cottages have screened-in porches and some even have fireplaces for cooler evenings.

Here’s a little history about our cottages:

Back in the 1930s, the Firefly Resort was built as a place for city dwellers to escape and relax, to unwind and enjoy simple pleasures. Coffee on the front porch at daybreak, a blazing bonfire and friends sharing stories, a picnic on the beach, chasing fireflies – this is the life at the Firefly Resort.

Just a short walk from our cottages is our Private Beach access where you can swim, play in the sand or even enjoy a game of beach volleyball. Firefly Resort is in the perfect location for Lake Michigan summertime family fun.

Don’t worry about setting up a dog-sitter. Firefly Resort is dog-friendly so you bring Fido with you on your Michigan getaway! Take a look at our pet policy for more information and to see which of our cottages allow dogs.

Union Pier is located in Harbor Country, the southwest corner of Michigan. This area is full of activities no matter what season — Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter. Check out the other cities in Harbor Country as well.

For shopping in Harbor Country, you can browse through antique malls, cute boutiques, art galleries and farmers markets.

GrapesFor nightlife, be sure to stop by Four Winds Casino. It’s the perfect way to spend an evening from gourmet dishes to casual dining options as well as wine, martinis and live music.

If you like exploring wineries, you will love the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail.

But if you prefer action instead of relaxation, we have Warren Dunes State Park, Chikaming Nature Preserve and Park, Warren Woods Forest Preserve and Grand Mere State Park. Depending on the season, you can swim, hike, bike, bird watch, or go cross-country skiing, sledding, or tubing. There are numerous golf courses in Harbor Country as well.

dog-playing-on-beachYou love to travel. And you love your dog. Why not combine the two? Many of the cottages at Firefly Resort are dog-friendly.

Here’s our pet policy:

  • Well behaved pets are welcomed in some cottages. Pets are required to be kept on a leash and you are required to pick-up after them. There is one (1) pet maximum per applicable cottage.
  • For our pet visitors there is an additional $50 refundable deposit and a $30 per stay cleaning charge.
  • We also hope you will not leave your pet for hours alone in the cottage. Your pets know they are on vacation and get upset when left alone for long periods.

If you’re new to traveling with your dog, here are a few tips:

  • Put your cell phone number on your dog’s ID tags.
  • Make sure your dog is up-to-date on any vaccines.
  • Pack extra water, especially if traveling during warm weather.
  • Be sure to include a first aid kit in addition to your dog’s favorite toys, bed, bowls and food.
