Property description

12317 Spruce St., Sawyer Michigan. This is a Charming and relaxing 3+ bedroom home. The kitchen is a gourmet's delight. The screened room off the kitchen over looks a fully fenced in yard with a fire pit to enjoy those quiet nights under the stars. The open floor plan is great for family gatherings. There is a wood burning fireplace in the family room. The home has been totally decorated and sits on 1 level with a great layout. The Master is spacious with a full bathroom and its own access to the yard. There is a great front porch for family hangouts or sit by the fire pit in the back yard. It is a short walk to one of the best beach Harbor Country has to offer. Warren Dunes state park is a short walk. If you have not walked the creek to the Lake this is a must. There are great Restaurants, Brewery, Winery's and antiquing near by. Washer and dryer in cottage.

Golf?: If Golf is your game the Southwest Michigan area has many top Tier golf courses with-in a short drive. Try Michigan Hills golf course! A short 15 minute drive from the cottage. A weekend get-away is great in fall and spring with 'the gang of 4'. Followed up with a night of sitting by the fire pit with great sleeping arrangements.

Antiquing?: You can spend days going through the many shops up and down Red Arrow. Great Gallery's too. Follow up with visiting the local Winery's for some very nice local wines. And of course many fine restaurants for both the family outings and Fine Dining. Hot Downtown Sawyer has great Restaurants and a Brewery you will love.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We have owned a cottage in this community since 1994. Our kids were raised every summer in Sawyer walking back and forth to the beach and the dunes. We updated to this cottage almost 5 years ago and decided to open our cottage to renters now that our kids are grown. The memories going to the beach and the atmosphere in Harbor Country for family vacations are something you have to experience. Great restaurants, shops and quaint little towns are great to go to when your not beaching it. You will be very comfortable in Beachcomber Cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Sawyer:
A short 10-15 minute walk to the best beach in Harbor Country and 2 blocks to the Warren Dunes State Park. Warren Dunes is the No 1 visited Park in all of Michigan. Downtown Sawyer has a new Brewery with great food for all the family to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The open floor plan is great for family's. The master and bonus room on one end with it's own beautiful master bath. Access to the back yard from the master bedroom. The other 2 bedrooms are on the other end of the cottage with the kitchen and family room meeting in the center of the cottage. A really nice and spacious screen room off the kitchen to relax. A nice fire pit to sit under the stars for those quiet nights. Just a fun and relaxing home.
