About Michael Kochanny

Both Mary and I grew up in and continue to live in the city of Chicago and while we thrive on all the city has to offer we began coming to southwest Michigan during the summers of college and continued as we began our careers. The peace and solitude that we find just a short distance from the hustle of the city re-ivigorates us with every visit. For me there is nothing better than long walks along the incredible beaches (something that I do year round) finished off with a glass of wine, good friends and a fabulous dinner somewhere along the Red Arrow Highway. Michael & Mary Kochanny, Chicago, IL

Michael Kochanny purchased this condo in 2005

Why Michael Kochanny chose Sawyer

We were given a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of this very interesting development shortly after the drawings were completed. What began as raw space was transformed in six months to a modern interpretation of a Tuscan villa. We most enjoy the central location within Harbor Country, close to everything, but just a little off the beaten path.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another great time! Although we have never met, it always feels like we are staying a a friends home! Hope to be back in February for Mom's B-day. Have a great holiday season.

P.S. Never had the little ones with us before, the open floor plan and long hallways gave us plenty of room.

Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property which made for a fun three day retreat with family. It is close to several very good restaurants with Mesa Luna being our favorite. A cute Scandinavian Bakery just across the street that serves breakfast as well as loads of donuts, pastries, pies, etc. Many antique shops along the main road. Nice getaway. Michael and Mary are pleasant and quick to respond to questions. We enjoyed our stay! Thank you!

Beautiful Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this rental over the New Year's weekend. The unit is spacious, comfortable, and really lovely. We enjoyed cooking in the well appointed kitchen, appreciating all it had to offer. Our son and his fiance joined us and we found it perfect for two couples and a dog. We had plenty of space and options for privacy. We greatly enjoyed the area and the close proximity to the lake. We would love to return and experience the other seasons.

Nicest place we have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous home. It has lots of beautifully decorated space and fully stocked with anything you could possibly need. We stayed here for an entire month and it felt just like Home. Great place to stay for ND football weekends. Mary and Michael were great hosts who went above and beyond to make our stay perfect in every respect.
