Sawyer House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Breezy Knoll Cottage!

Come with family or a few friends to stay at our attractive cottage nestled the woods at the end of a private road. You'll love waking up and walking or biking to nearby Warren Dunes State Park. Spend some time at Captain Mike's Fun Park with the kids, or go shopping in one of the unique local antique shops. There are amazing u-pick farms to visit nearby if you wish to sample local blueberries, peaches, apples, and more.

It is not unusual to see a mother deer with her baby walking across the front lawn early in the morning. There are also countless squirrels, rabbits, and birds. We have even seen dozens of wild turkeys strolling across the property in a big group.

You can end your days by roasting marshmallows and hot dogs over the fire pit or watching the sunset at the beach. You'll be glad you chose to stay with us! Please contact me for additional information.

Conveniently located near I-94.

Charming Cottage with Fire Pit Near Warren Dunes State Park
average rating of 4.62069 based on 29 reviews

Very convenient to fun activities

  • 4 of 5

This cozy cottage is very close to great activities like wineries, Hesston Steam Museum, orchards, and Warren Dunes State Park. While the layout of the cottage had everything we needed, it is in need of some attention and repair (deck walkway, shower grout, bathroom door knob, couch linens). It was nice being able to cook meals at home for our littles, but don't forget your staples like butter and cooking spray. My kiddo loved the tree swing and watering the flowers outside in the yard. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Great location and price

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. Just a few minutes away from Warren Dunes, downtown Sawyer, and Three Oaks. I stayed here with two young kids and a dog; they all loved the yard!

Cozy little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Harbor Country. We found the Red Arrow HWY better to get around than the interstate which has a lot of construction. Driving up and down the Red Arrow had a real coastal feel to it. Everything was 5-20 minutes away. The cottage was great for our needs. Our 3 year old slept on the bottom bunk and our 6 month old slept in a pack in play in our room. We never tried the WIFI or cable but the DVD player worked fine. We cooked about half our meals and eat out the other. The "breezy knoll" was nice to run around with the kids and exercise. The on site washer and dryer came in very handy, my wife loved how the dryer would sing to you when it was done. Would recommend Luisa's Café for breakfast but only open Thurs-Sun. The Beach Bucket ice cream is like 3minutes away. Dinners were great at the Roadhouse and Gulistan's, both on Red Arrow. Michigan City Zoo (30min away) and Patawatomi Zoo in South Bend (1hr away) were small but nice. Warren Dunes is beautiful but a lot of work with small kids. Silver Beach County Park Benton Harbor feels like your in Florida. Everywhere is about 10 bucks to park. Lincoln Township Beach is free and secluded but very rocky shoreline.

Charming Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and great location. 20 minutes from St. Joseph's, 40 minutes from South Haven. It's down a little gravel road that Google Maps had a bit of trouble initially locating. Sara answered all of our questions and was very helpful. She even lent us a cupcake pan for muffins. Kitchen supplies and towels were well stocked. Internet worked great. Bring bugspray, there was a mosquito warning while we were there. Just across the street is the Warren Dunes State Park. It's a bit of a walk if you're carrying stuff to the beach. Entrance fee is $9.00 a day, but you can come and go all day. The only problem encountered was a very slow shower drain. I reported to Sara and she had it fixed as soon as we left. I would recommend this place.

Great location, awesome price

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was absolutely perfect! It's about a mile walk from the front door to the beach, so the location is awesome. There's also a ping pong table in the basement for added fun :) If 6 people were staying, it would be a little crowded, but it's a great size for 2-4 people. The owners are friendly and helpful. My dog had a great time as well! I would definitely recommend this cottage.

Excellent stay at an excellent property

  • 5 of 5

My family returned to Breezy Knoll this year after a stay several summers ago, so our visit was a bit nostalgic. My young son loved scrambling around the yard, exploring, and we enjoyed hiking through Warren Dunes and spending time at the Lake Michigan beach. The cottage is clean and very family-friendly (our dog was welcome, too!), and Sara was a kind and responsive owner. We roasted marshmellows over the fire pit, played on the tree swing, and ate most meals out on the deck. I couldn't have asked for a better trip, and traveling with two children under the age of three can make for a challenging vacation. But this cottage proved a perfect spot--accommodating for a young family and exuding a "home" feeling even as we experienced the joy of getting away from our daily routines. Thank you, Chad and Sara! We look forward to returning!
