Gateway Guesthouse

Comfortable & Convenient


Unionville is known as the "Gateway to the Thumb" of Michigan. It's not a destination for many people, but it's near a lot of great places to spend time. We opened the Gateway Guesthouse to provide convenient lodging for you to explore the Great Lakes Bay Region and the "Thumb."

We took the apartment in a wonderful, 100+ year old building and updated it to make it a comfortable place to relax and recharge while you're discovering the Great Lakes Bay Region and Thumb of Michigan.

The Guesthouse is a 3 bedroom, 1 bath apartment. It has a full kitchen with all the cookware and dishes you'll need. Kitchen and bathroom have both been redone and it has all the amenities you expect, from air conditioning to Wifi.

Frankenmuth: Bavarian Fun

Frankenmuth has held on to its German roots. Whether you're taking in one of their festivals throughout the year, browsing "Bronner's CHRISTmas Wonderland," or going wild at an indoor waterpark, "Michigan's Little Bavaria" is a must see.

Caseville: Beaches and More

Located on the shore of Saginaw Bay, Caseville is a beautiful place to spend time year round, boasting great restaurants, fun shopping, and a beautiful beach. But it's extra fun during one of their festivals-- especially if you're here in mid-August during Cheeseburger Festival (parrot hats optional).

Great Lakes Bay Region: Something for Everyone 

The "Great Lakes Bay Region" of Bay City, Midland, and Saginaw offers anything you could ask for. From arts and culture to sports (especially the Saginaw Spirit and Midland's Great Lakes Loons), festivals, and so much more, if you can't find a great time then you're not trying.
