Sawyer house description

Marylil is located just blocks from Lake Michigan, just south of the Warren Dunes. It is a beautiful ranch style 5 bedroom, 3 bath [2 full, 1 half] home in a private and wooded beach association. Just last year the following improvements were made: refinished hardwood floors, freshly painted, new trim, new hardware, new doors, and a new bathroom. A wonderful screened-in porch with a huge private fenced-in backyard to relax or use it as a great space for the kids to run around. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off all that sand from the beach. Make use of the outdoor gas grill for your family barbeques. Marylil is equipped with central air conditioning and has a washer and dryer. The bedrooms include one king bed, three with queen beds, and one bunk room – one twin over twin and another twin over full, and even has a Thomas table, some Lego's, and Geo Tracks. There is a pack and play and a high-chair if needed. The home is perfect for a large family, a few families to share, or a group of friends. If you find you need to be connected, there is wifi. Bring your devices as you can cast to the TV.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have always loved traveling to Southwest Michigan and enjoying the beautiful beaches. We wanted to be able to have our children grow up with the beauty of Lake Michigan and the surrounding area. We would love to share our home with you and your family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
No matter what the season, Marylil and Sawyer have something to offer. During summer, spend the day on the beach with your feet in the sand, a warm breeze blowing, a good book, sounds of children playing, and your favorite beverage in your hand. As the day winds to an end, the different hues of orange and blue soar across Lake Michigan as the sun says its final farewell to the day. Then enjoy a bonfire on the beach ready to roast your marshmallow for the perfect s'more. Book a stay at Marylil in Sawyer. Our private beach is one of the most beautiful in Southwest Michigan. Besides the beach there are many other activities to enjoy. Bike through wine country, pick fresh blueberries, shoot a round of golf, have your own big year birding in Harbor Country, kayak on the Galien river. If shopping is more your style – there are plenty of boutiques and antique shops. There are many restaurants nearby including Fitzgerald's Bistro, Mesa Luna, and D'Agostino's are just a few. There are several microbreweries nearby including Sawyers own Greenbush Brewery. Prefer Fall, then grab your sweater and head out for a wondrous walk with all the hiking trails nearby. Watch the leaves with their beautiful color fall ever so delicately to the ground. The deer are quite sneaky and are fun to watch. Go for a walk along the beach and come home to a fire inside or a bonfire in the backyard. In winter a quiet calm has come to Sawyer – enjoy the snow and frozen Lake Michigan. Take some time to yourself, some quality family time, or a great friends getaway to Marylil. There is a gas burning fireplace to keep you warm inside with a large window to view the serene winter landscape. Are you more the outdoors type during winter? There is lots to do in Southwest Michigan during the winter season. Ice skating, cross country skiing, tobogganing and tubing, downhill skiing and snowboarding. In Spring you can take a walk on the beach and start to imagine your return this summer.
