Property description

Welcome to Creekside Cottage! This charming Cape Cod style cottage is on a 3/4 acre wooded lot in Sawyer Michigan and was built only 14 years ago. The property is located on a corner lot just north of the famous Tower Hill summer camp about 1/2 of a mile from the corner where Tower Hill Road meets Browntown Road. A creek runs right behind the house and it's not at all unusual to see deer sneaking their way through the beautiful wooded back yard.

It's an easy 1/2 mile walk to the South end of Warren Dunes State park where you can hike the beautiful sand dunes and swim in wonderful lake Michigan! Its also a short drive to the entrance of the park if you wish to drive in.

The main house is beautifully decorated and is comfy, cozy and clean. The first floor has a two story great room and open kitchen with pine ceilings, a stone wood burning fire place and wide plank pine floors. The large dining room with stone floor, cathedral ceiling, gas fireplace, and large windows overlooking the wooded lot is perfect for cozy or elegant dining also opens off the kitchen. A comfortable screened porch and large deck with a professionally maintained hot tub stretch across the back of the cottage overlooking an acre of forest. The first floor bedroom has two full size beds, and a large bathroom with a rain shower.

The upstairs Master Suite has a full size antique brass queen sized bed, full bathroom en suite, and a private deck.

The house has all the entertainment options you need, including a 42-inch flat screen cable TV with surround-sound, Blu-ray DVD and IPOD docking stations.

Across the flagstone patio and above the 2-car garage is newly remodeled coach house apartment. The coach house has a queen bed, bathroom, kitchenette with sink, microwave, refrigerator and a new coffee maker. It is a cute loft-style arrangement that is perfect for a couple or a few older children.

Location

Southwest Michigan's biggest attraction is the Warren Dunes State park. You can walk for miles along the beautiful sand beach and swim, boat, jet ski, fish, or kayak. There are great opportunities for shopping and dinning all along a ten mile stretch on Red Arrow Highway that runs from New Buffalo to Sawyer. The Sawyer Garden Center is a must! Plants and local Michigan produce galore along with just about anything you would need. If you cannot find it there, the Sawyer grocery store is across the street. Adjacent to the garden center is Fitzgeralds' restaurant and Green Bush our local beer brewery! The antique/furniture shops are wonderful. Check out Charm Cottage, Lovell + Whyte, Sojourn, and Fritz Olsens'. Favorite eateries are The Road House, Fitzgeralds, Soe. Inland a few miles are wineries in Buchanan such as Tabor Hill (which also has a great restaurant), The Round Barn, and Lemon Creek.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: After searching for the perfect Michigan cottage for three years... I came upon a lot in Sawyer Michigan that was calling my name. So thirteen years ago I built my own! I selected all the materials incorporated into the home. What a fun creative process.

Why the Owner Chose Sawyer:
I live in a high density area in Chicago and thought it would be great to have a get away spot and a little land. This property has beautiful mature white pines, tulip ,maple, oak, cherry, and cottonwood trees. It is a natural forest with a little creek that runs behind the property. I have added a little garden but you cannot beat God's handiwork. I love to sit on my screened in porch with a glass of wine and watch the birds. The stress of city life melts away. I have many a fond memory with good friends and family here... and you will too! This is a great house for entertaining. The dinning room is large with a table that can seat 10 and a bay window overlooking the back garden.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Short hike to the beach and the dunes, quiet cool woods, beautiful in all four seasons, close to Sawyers restaurants and shops.... relax on the porch, grill dinner, hot tub,... or build a fire in the outdoor fire pit.
