Convenient to beach and quaint Sawyer. Close to New Buffalo and St Joseph. No issues but have stayed there in the past and the owner will address any issues that arise. You can't go wrong staying here.. Absolutely love this adorable house and the awesome screened in porch. The pictures look exactly as it does.

Like home and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to the area, and this was our first "real" vacation. We had no trouble finding the house. The neighborhood was quiet. We walked to Warren Dunes multiple times. Our family consists of 2 adults over 40, 16 year old girl, and 12 year old boy. We parked at Cherry Beach and had a picnic. The strawberries at the Sawyer Market and Garden Center were the best I have ever had. Location was close to Silver Beach in St. Joe, where we spent a day and ate Gyros. The house was easy to keep clean and was stocked with enough supplies for comfort. We played bocci ball in the yard, and walked through the streets in the neighborhood in the evening. We had a great time. If we travel back to the area, we would like to stay here, again.

Great cottage in lovely area of Harbor Country, away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent the Labor Day weekend at this property and it was truly a wonderful vacation. The cottage is fully equipped with whatever you might need. Nicely appointed and very comfortable with a screened in porch overlooking a large & lush backyard. This soon became my spot for morning coffee and relaxing anytime... watching the birds and gazing at the greenery. Would be lovely in the Autumn I am sure. Thoughtfully maintained and very clean, the cottage has both Central a/c and great (quiet) ceiling fans to keep you cool, a full washer/dryer in the unit, and a nice tv/dvd setup. You feel secluded and private, yet with only a short drive to SAWYER MARKET (fabulous for basics and gourmet stuffs, plus produce from local areas and a gift shop !) and close to all the area has to offer in New Buffalo/Union Pier/Three Oaks and other towns. Walking distance to Cherry Beach and owner provides a pass for your use. Furniture and beds are comfy and linens are provided. You could pay (much) more for new construction, marble countertops, 800 thread-count sheets, etc. but this is a perfect place to get away from it all, be cozy and comfortable, and still have change left over to take yourselves for a nice dinner or the kids up to St. Joseph for a road trip along the Lake. I recommend it as a tonic to the soul and a place to make some wonderful memories, no matter what the Season is. Owner was also extremely prompt and easy to deal with, checking in to see if I needed anything or had questions. PLUS ***Great wi-fi !! Thanks Russ for sharing your getaway…:)
