About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleep 8-9)

Wonderful 5 bedroom beach house:

This beautifully appointed 5 BD 2 BA home is in a wooded and private beach association with large beach. The home is great for entertaining with 2 living rooms, a dining room that seats 12 and a large screened-in porch that has over stuffed couches, chairs and teak table that seats 6-8. Great outdoor grilling deck. Wonderful kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances connects to family room.

The bedrooms include one king bedroom, two queen bedrooms, one twin bedroom adjoining one of the queens and a child's room with bunk beds. We also have a crib, pack & play and high-chair if needed. The house has plenty of room but with lots of nooks and cranny for reading and afternoon naps. The house is perfect for two families with young children.

We are steps away from a shallow beach front, great for young children. The sunsets are beautiful every night, great for toasting the end of the day!

An evening bon fire with s'mores is a must!!

Keywords: 5 bedroom Michigan lake front property. Private beach in small beach community. Beautiful views

Guestbook comments from the owner

Arrived for a Friday thru Monday getaway with some lifelong friends. House was exactly as described. Owner provided everything needed for home away from home feeling. Clean, extremely well maintained, modern accommodations. Owner was extremely easy to work with during the booking process. Could not have been happier. Have already booked for next year. We have found our annual meeting location. Thank you again for sharing your home with us.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time this beautiful home! It was perfect for 6 adults and 2 children. There is an easy walk to the beautiful beach down some stairs. The best part of this house is the outdoor porch with a large table and sitting area, just perfect! You can hear the waves in the background and the home is in a secluded woods neighborhood. Everything is clean and accommodating in this home. Would definitely recommend this home!

Perfect Getaway with Extended Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week enjoying this spacious, private home! We loved the beautiful screened in porch, private beach area, walks to the dunes and dinners around the large kitchen table. The owners were helpful and great to work with and the friendly neighbors were gracious to point us in the direction of the local sights as well as share their water gear. It was such a great week away and was the perfect place to hang out and be with our family! We'd go back again for sure!

Wonderful Weekend in Sawyer!

  • 5 of 5

W & K -

Your house was a gem hidden in the woods. All members of our party were very happy with their stay at your beautiful home! Driving in towards the house with the falling leaves and bright Autumn colors all around us were the perfect welcome to such a cozy and comfortable stay at the house. Looking down at the lake from your home's vantage point was amazing. And to cap it all off - we utilized the gas grill on the deck to cook up some ridiculously good New York strip steaks from Falatic's Meat Market up the street. The proximity of the house to Greenbush Brewing and downtown Sawyer, as well as the Journeyman Distillery were so close...we couldn't believe how easily accessible everything was to get too. Thank you again for opening up your lake home to me and my friends! A weekend to remember for sure!

Wonderful for Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful house for our kids and grandkids over Thanksgiving weekend, and it was - in their words - "perfect". It is equipped to handle small children, and it is easy to spread everyone out between the 5 bedrooms. The pictures don't do this place justice, as they don't show that those two living areas are part of one HUGE open space, with a very large dining room table in the middle and windows looking out towards the lake along the length of it. There was plenty of space for the little ones to play and for us to keep track of them. We had a great weekend and made lots of memories in this awesome lake home.

Great Place for a Great little Getaway

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us who wanted long weekend to enjoy Lake Michigan, the beach, and all there is to enjoy in Southwestern Michigan. The owner (great guy) met us at the house, told us what we needed to know, and gave us the key. The house was very clean, warm and fully equipped to let us enjoy some grilled steaks and kitchen prepared food. Bedrooms and beds were clean and comfortable, and the back porch was even used for sleeping. Bathrooms were also clean, warm and had plenty of hot water.

The 8 of us would recommend this house - with rental costs which are VERY reasonable - to anyone wanting a home away from home.

Wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as a fun getaway for my girls (age 10 and 12) during their fall break from school. The owners were great to work with and we would definitely rent from them again!

The home is the best of both worlds, you feel like you are in a cabin deep in the woods and yet you are just a short walk to the beach. The home is cozy and charming -- we loved it. The kitchen and living room/dining room were especially nice and spacious. But, our favorite was the screened in patio which is just lovely! You can't see the beach, but there is a really nice lake view. The beach is so beautiful -- and even though it was fall we spent a ton of time there! We also hit the Warren Dunes and the big outlet mall in Michigan City (plenty to do even in the non-summer months).

There is plenty of room in the home -- you could easily split it between 2 families. However, there is only one small tv. We knew this when we rented it so we brought a small tv for our 2 year old and also packed a projector so we could have movie nights! (We are big movie watchers and sports fans so we need multiple TVs). Ha ha

Anyway, we were very happy with the home and feel you can't go wrong here no matter what season you are renting in-- you will enjoy!
