Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: My husband and I love everything about Michigan and the special atmosphere that defines Harbor Country. Just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Midwestern cities, our home known as Dunehaven has provided us with a relaxing getaway. This special home is a sanctuary for family fun partnered with quiet moments amidst the towering pines. The white clean beaches bordered by sparkling blue water, outstanding restaurants, antique stores, unique shopping, winery tours, and blueberry picking are just a few of the things we enjoy at Dunehaven. In the fall, we like to take hikes through the woods in our backyard amidst the colorful leaves. The sparkling snow of winter and the lure of a cozy night around the fireplace mark the days of winter. And spring means hundreds of wildflowers offering a carpet of color to our walk to the beach. Ah, Pure Michigan....we know you will love it as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Sawyer:
For years our family had vacationed in Harbor Country starting with tent camping in Warren Dunes State Park. We now can share our beautiful vacation home with other families and guests who enjoy the wooded land and beaches along Lake Michigan. All four seasons beckon you with a winter wonderland (we supply the sleds and toboggan!), walks in the woods to admire the fall splendor, exploring the spring with wildflowers, butterflies and golden sunsets, and celebrating summer with walks on the beach and building sand castles. At night, enjoy a marshmallow s'more around the fire pit in our backyard.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy the luxury of a new, quality-built, top of the line home with all the comforts of home including three flat screen tv's with cable tv and DVD/BluRay players, seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, 2 gourmet kitchens, wood burning fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Yet, just steps away, the adventure of a walk in the woods beckons you to peacefully step through the canopy of the forest out our back yard. With a five minute walk, you will see the magnificent Lake Michigan with its white, clean sandy beaches and inspiring sunsets. During the winter, snowshoe through the woods to the dunes to coast down the snow-topped peaks of frosty fun just a few feet away at the dunes. My favorite place is on the screened in porch listening to the waves, the birds and the peace and calm of the tall pines and wooded wonder. On a rainy or cool evening, we love to gather around the wood burning fireplace to tell stories, play games, or sing karaoke. (Board games and karaoke machine are in the house) Life is instantly calmer and more peaceful when you are spending time at Dunehaven. Explore the woods, hike the dunes or just enjoy nature at its best during the day. At night, gaze at the starlit sky amidst the glow of the moon. Our firepit is the perfect gathering place for your family and friends. We even supply the roasting sticks, firewood, benches and log seats around the fire in our back yard bordering the state park. Young children enjoy the wonder of nature right outside their back yard. Inside, Dunehaven is a chlld's delight with a large playroom, secret closet, video games, toys, a play kitchen, board games, puzzles, bicycles, and even a large red wooden wagon to take our sand buckets, toys and shovels to the beautiful white sand beach. The nearby attractions of Bridgman, New Buffalo and St. Joseph are wonderful tourist communities to explore. In downtown St. Joe, visit the chocolate cafe, old fashioned five & dime store, fudge/ice cream shop, toy store, bookstore & pet shop.
