About The Owner

Guy Sawka live at 59048 Madi lane, New Hudson, MI. 48165 Gymnastics Instructor, brighton MI. and personal trainer.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose Northwest

Built it new in 1996 because of the area. located in a quiet, treed subdivision of Hidden Hamlet. Very close to skiing and close to Petoskey State Park on lake Michigan. Many amenities: game room, gas fire place, outdoor jacuzzi, fire pit, gas grill, bicycles. So many things to do or also just relax in a great up north atmoshphere.

Petoskey state Park on lake Michigan is just a short 4 mile drive.

Tunnel of Trees drive begins about 10 minutes away just on the other side of downtown Harbor Springs.

What makes this house unique

One of the best things I like is to fall asleep to the sound of the creek flowing in the backyard, you can hear it with the windows open. Eating out on the deck is also fun. Sitting in front of the fire or especially in the jacuzzi after skiing.....priceless.

The game room is also a lot of fun.

Making smores in the fire pit; great up north tradition.

Fun in Northern Michigan

  • 5 of 5

Great Home for a family Christmas vacation. We had 8 people stay here very comfortably. We went downhill skiing, cross country skiing and a little snowshoeing on the north country trail. Kids loved the game room and the adults loved the hot tub.

Rooms are:

Upstairs master room: King Bed

Upstairs Loft area: Double Photon

Main level room 1: 2 twin beds (We pushed together)

Main level room 2: 2 twin beds

I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a great northern Michigan adventure.

Very Nice Time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for a quick Ski vacation. House has a great location about 2 minute drive to Nub, very scenic with the snow. Kids absolutely loved the game room, after skiing all day, we had some fierce ping pong and air hockey battles into the night. Guy was super easy to deal with, answered all our questions, and was very responsive. Would stay again if house is available.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Great place – highly recommend. Gorgeous lot, especially from the hot tub with snow on the trees over the backyard ravine. We were grandparents from Wisconsin meeting our Michigan daughter and her family, including 4 year old and 1 year old grandchildren, for an early January ski trip. This place was perfect for the 6 of us. Various of us particularly enjoyed the hot tub, downstairs game and all purpose room, the 3 bedrooms, spacious living area, and 3 levels for some privacy and separation. The house is very nicely decorated and furnished with all sorts of conveniences and games. The beds were comfortable. All in all, really great. We will very likely be back for future family get togethers. Oh, and the skiing was fantastic – 1-3 inches of light fluffy snow each of the 3 days and the last night produced 15 inches of fresh powder!

Relaxing well appointed get away on charming street

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we pulled onto the street, I was enamored by the beautiful shade trees hovering over the corner lot. The smell of wood chips beckoned me into the backyard area where a fire pit and chairs awaited me. As I opened the basement door, I knew I was in for a treat. I loved that was a washer and dryer available for use. As I ventured up the stairs, the windows in the living room showcased the beauty of Michigan. Lots of trees. The view was serene and peaceful. Instructions for the place were hung on the refrigerator with clear instructions on how to use hot tub, which I found very helpful. Although I didn't watch t.v. that weekend, remotes were visibly placed on coffee table. The kitchen was fully stocked which was great and the grill was awesome. Hot tub was relaxing, especially under the clear, star-lit sky. Accommodations were great. Loved out location, the weekend went by way too fast, and Guy was a complete gem to work with. I look forward to more stays here in the future! 5 stars.
