About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Truly a great family place, a short walk to the Warren Dunes State Park, and miles of pristine beachfront along Lake Michigan . Warren Dunes allows for fun for everyone, to include the four legged family members (Dog Friendly Beach Section). This newly redone 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is located on a over-sized wooded lot with tons of mature trees. The back yard is fully fenced in, allowing privacy for the group and a place to play for your dog. The property has a very cozy main house that sleeps 6 adults, as well as a bunk house that sleeps 4-6 kids. The custom built cedar bunk house is located 10 ft. away from the main home and provides air condition and heating, as well as a great spot for young adults to hang out while having some privacy. Being close to the Warren Dunes State Park, having a fenced in yard,hot tub,and a main and bunk house makes this property a great rental for all to enjoy.

Nice quiet place that is just a few minutes walk from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We made a surprise weekend getaway trip for my fathers 50th birthday. The location was perfect as we were able to visit some breweries and wineries with just a short bus ride. Weather did not cooperate so we did not make it to the beach, but it is only a few minutes away. Overall great quiet place for a family if you have kids the bunk house is every kids dream. At least I think so even being 25.

Incredible home the picture don't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

The home is incredible. King size master suite, 2 nice other bedrooms that share a bathroom. Nice size kitchen with huge eating area off of the kitchen with a hug bench style table. The bunk house is incredible!! You can easily hv 3 families share this place and hv the kids in the bunk house with still room for an air mattress. The bunk house shares the deck area so they are literally right next door. The jacuzzinis in great condition and great! Can't say anything bad about this home. The dunes are a 5 min walk away. Definitely definitely worth the cost!

Owner's Response: Laura, First of all thank you for renting with us. I am really sorry you felt the place needed some updates as most feel part of the charm of the home is the fact that the owners have not completely modernized the property like so many other homes in the area. I can tell you this owner takes great care of the home and keeps everything in tip top shape. I am not really sure that the house deserves the first low review in 7 years because the bathrooms were tiny but I do respect your opinion. These points you brought out would be more useful to someone buying the home not renting it for a week. As you know from renting from us in the past all of our homes are extremely clean, well taken care of and true to their advertisement. Please make sure next time you rent from us that you carefully review all photos of the home to determine whether it is a good fit for you.

Best place to be in Sawyer for fall colors

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to enjoy the fall colors in Michigan. The proximity to Lake Michigan, the Warren Dunes State Park, and the wineries and breweries could not be beat. We were able to enjoy a week of relaxing in the crisp fall weather and colors, cozy fires in a perfect rock fireplace, a few puzzles and great time with friends. We visited a few wineries in the area (Dablon for great atmosphere and live music, Lemon Creek was our favorite wine) and a few breweries (Greenbush and Cultivate were at the top of the list, but, we really only hit a few of the many). Getaway is a few minutes away and a must for any Cubs fan. Timothy's and Mesa Luna are very nice evening dining options that were open in the off season. There is really too much within easy drive or walk to list. We also found being north of New Buffalo was a plus as things were a little calmer and being close to Bridgman and St. Joseph was perfect. We are hoping that we can get back next year and enjoy time like we did this year. This may be one of our favorite VRBO's we have stayed in.

Kitchen was well stocked and a great option to dining out. The master shower is small, but, not a major issue and we did have an issue with the wifi. The owner was quick to respond to our questions. If you have dogs and/or children this would be a perfect place to stay. We did not use the 'bunkhouse', but, it looked awesome for a group of children or young adults to stay in. There is an outdoor shower that had been winterized so we did not get to use it.

Fall is beautiful in Sawyer, MI!!

  • 5 of 5

The Fairytale Cottage was the perfect Fall get away! The house is in an awesome location and the neighborhood is private and very wooded. The trees were beautiful and it was so nice being able to walk to the beach area and over to the Warren Dunes State Park for a hike. Bike riding in the area is safe and fun. The house is fully stocked with plenty of towels and comfortable beds. We did not use the bunk house but it is a very cool place and would be like camp for kids or teens. The hot tub ROCKS!! Gorgeous gazebo and the tub is outstanding and was ready to go. The fenced in yard was perfect for my two pups who loved running around and looking for squirrels. I saw some wild turkeys walking in the front yard! You don't see those in Chicago! The TV and stereo were really nice so we were able to watch the World Series in surround sound. There is also a nice TV in the master bedroom which we enjoyed every night. Lots of nice decorations in the house and plenty of space for a large family gathering. We would definitely stay at Fairytale Cottage again!
