Welcome to 'Sweet Sara's'. This home is one of 8 houses in a secluded Lake Michigan bluff neighborhood. Sweet Sara's is a newer country home where no attention to detail has been spared -- a true 5 star accommodation. It's a perfect getaway from the city or a great meeting place for a girls' weekend away!
Walk the singing sands of Lake Michigan beach, watch the ever-changing sunsets from the bluff, celebrate the spectacular colors of autumn or sip hot cocoa in front of the fireplace on a snowy day. Whatever the season, the experience is always inspiring and delightful.
Take a short drive on scenic highway M-63, hugging the Lake Michigan shoreline, north to South Haven or south to St. Joseph and find good food, live music/theater, unique shops, museums and art galleries. Each town has its own lighthouse and boat-filled harbors, featuring individual charm and unique attractions -- memories you will not soon forget!

About Patti Ther
Originally from Glen Ellyn, IL. Fell in love with the area in 1987. Built new in 2000, when I became a full time resident.
Patti Ther purchased this House in 1987
Why Patti Ther chose Hagar Township
The first time I experienced St. Joseph, MI. I knew I wanted to be here. Originally from Illinois, this was the perfect spot to chill out from the hustle and bustle of Chicago, and still is! Although I had been enjoying vacations here at Sweet Sara's since 1987, when the home was rebuilt in 2000 I moved up permanently. Hope you find in your visit what I discovered many years ago and still enjoy about Sweet Sara's and Lake Michigan. -- Patti
What makes this House unique
You will love the private beach here at Sweet Sara's -- everyone does. Take a swim, read a book, walk the "singing sands" for miles in each direction, it's all so good. We are located a short drive to St. Joe, South Haven, Saugatuck, Holland. The wine country here in Southwest Michigan offers lots of individual wineries and fun group tours. Golf courses are some of the best, with Harbor Shores (a Jack Nicklaus signature course) right down the road, which hosts the Senior PGA every other year . One cannot visit St. Joseph without experiencing the Silver Beach Carousel, the Whirlpool Splash Pad, the Curious Kids Museums. Many of my guests claim that South Haven has the best Farmer's Market, and Saugatuck offers a place to visit more unique shops that you can fit in a day!

Fabulous! Homey! Pristine!
We just returned from Sweet Sara's--three generations together with little kids for a long Labor Day weekend. What fun we had! This house is darling--well decorated, clean as a pin, lots of details and amenities thought of by the owner, Patti, who is a doll! The home is just north of St. Joe about six miles so it's an easy trek to St. Joe's great Silver Beach. The house has a large back yard for kids to play in and a great fire pit/grill area full of flowers, herbs, and comfy outdoor furniture to sit in. The interior has loads of closet space, lovely clean bedrooms and baths, and one cozy small bedroom for two little children (my 4- and 2-yr-old grandchildren loved it!). Contact Patti to rent! She is VERY accommodating and looks after every detail. Great to work with! We'd go back in a heartbeat. You can definitely book with confidence!
Cozy, clean and roomy.
Fun family getaway. Patti's hospitality was fabulous!
Exceeded all expectations
Sweet Sara's has a huge backyard that the kids loved to play in as well as a great seating area by the fire pit. The inside was large, beautifully designed and decorated. It exceeded all our expectations!
Very nice accommodations and convenience to beach
Large, spacious home with large yard. Perfect for my grand children and us. Convenience to the private beach was awesome. All was very kid friendly. Patti was very nice and informative. Would recommend to anyone.
Our son's wedding
Great accommodation for our family! Spacious, clean, tastefully decorated and most of all meticulously equipped for us. Very homey. Excellemt location to Saint Joseph and access to the beach.
Great find for wedding week!
We loved our stay at Sweet Sara's! We were renting the house for the week of our daughter's wedding in St. Joe. The location was great, quiet, beautiful beach area nearby and lovely home. Spacious enough for 6 bridesmaids with 3 makeup/hair dressers to easily get ready before the wedding! Comfortable, beautifully decorated, and the bedrooms were perfect for our group. Children's bedrooms were so cute! The front porch swing was so relaxing! Thank you Patti, for sharing your lovely home!
My pleasure. Thank you for choosing us to host your wedding party.
