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.

Very Comfortable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property were very nice; we had lots of sleep options for our group. Loved the large dining table. The fire pit was very nice during our October stay. Also enjoyed the close walk to the Warren Dunes. Thank you for the hospitality!

We had a wonderful experience at the Fairytale Cottage in Sawyer!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed- from beach chairs to a pastry brush! The kids loved having their own place to hang in the bunk house. Our dogs were comfortable and used the doggie door all day long! The hot tub was great too! We will definitely stay here again :)

could be perfect

  • 4 of 5

Many things to like about this place-- mostly its proximity to the lake-- and the nice central AC. And the kids LOVED the bunkhouse (and the puzzles!). But we found mold on the ceiling of the living room, and mold also seemed to be in the drawers of the master bedroom wardrobe. Also the cookware and stove are fairly rudimentary and could use an upgrade.... And the furniture in the living room is pretty worn out. really nice master bed, though!

Owner's Response: Andrew, Thanks for all the positive comments. I did want to let you know that the home does not have mold. On the ceiling in the living room there is a dark spot from the fireplace smoke. This spot is directly above where the fireplace is located. We are currently repainting it but did want to let you know. I am glad overall you guys had a great stay and I look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

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!
