Dawn purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Dawn chose Chikaming Township
It is a traditional cottage, lovely large yard, and the kids love to play in the yard and jungle gym. It is so close to the beach and when accessing Red Arrow Highway to travel to Sawyer for a craft beverage or to New Buffalo to shop and dine. Dogs really enjoy the yard and do not escape as it is completely fenced in. Lastly, the evening hours spent around the fire pit are so special....not to mention the night sky and stars. Fireworks are often lit off on the beach at night so you may get a nice free show! For those who like, the casinos are close and offer concerts too!

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is cute and well-appointed and it's just a short walk from the lake and a beautiful beach. I wish I were going back this weekend!
We stayed here for the July 4rth weekend and we have wonderful time. My Mother is so picky but she loved the cottage so much that she wanted to stay. The cottage is well equipped, the yard is huge and beautiful!!! The beds are so comfortable, the beddings are high end. My Dog Buddy loved it also, he felt so comfortable!! Definetly will come back next year!!
I thank YOU for selecting my cottage for your holiday getaway not to mention your taking the time to review my cottage. Your complimentary words about my home/yard and your stay are very much appreciated...it warmed my heart.
Come back soon! Thanks again!!
We recently rented this property for a family reunion and it was a blast. We went with the option of renting both units which was an attractive and affordable option. If we all had to pay for hotels and to eat out all the time, I'm sure less people from my family could have shown up. Having the ability to sleep so many people, have two bathrooms, two kitchens, and two grills made this an affordable and fantastic experience. There is even a huge stainless steal table outside with the grills so we could prep, cook, and serve buffet style which is great with so many mouths to feed. The jungle gym is so cute and was like having a babysitter. The kids ran straight for it when we got there and it kept them busy till we could get to the beach. The fenced yard was great for our dogs, and helps make sure the younglings don't wander off too. Using the dryers at night on our towels and swimsuits at night was awesome also, instead of having stuff hanging all over the place. We had a ton of fun and it will be hard for us to beat this experience next year! Thanks to vrbo.com and the owner.
Wonderful Cottage Experience with Classy Touches
I brought my mother up to the cottage for Mother’s Day weekend. It is always a challenge to make sure she is comfortable in a new environment. All I can say is that my mother didn’t want to leave. She talks about coming back all of the time. What is so great about this place? Where do I start? You can’t beat the location. It is very close to the lake and the stairs that take you down are perfect. There are even sitting benches so you can just look at the lake if you don’t want to go all the way down to the water. The yard is large with tons of flowers and decorative items that give it a fun personality. There is a gas and a charcoal grill. The fire pit is excellent. It is surrounded by tiki torches. I love it.
The cottage itself is just perfect. The beds are comfortable. The bedding is high end. The full kitchen is very functional and there is nice sized bathroom. There is also a washer and dryer. Everything in the cottage is set up perfectly. I could see a larger group feeling just as comfortable as my mom and I felt. The owner Dawn has table games at the ready. There is even a great big screen TV. I highly recommend this rental. It is a cottage in the true sense of the word with great high end touches. You can tell the owner cares about your stay. My mom and I will be back.
We stayed here for Memorial Day weekend and had a wonderful time. What a charming cottage. It is easy to see that a lot of thought and care was taken to make us feel welcome and right at home. The yard is hugh and beautifully manicured. There is a fire pit which we enjoyed every night after returning from watching the sunset on Lake Michigan. The Lake and private beach is less than a 5 minute walk from cottage. This is the perfect spot for a beach vacation and if you listen closely you can even hear the waves at night!

We stayed in this wonderful cottage at the beginning of August, 2011 and loved it.Dawn, the owner,has made sure everything you need for a beach vacation is at your fingertips. The cottage was clean and well equipped.It truly is one block to the best beach and even more importantly a great beach access.The huge yard and firepit were fun in the evening.While the kitchen counter space is a bit of a challenge, the kitchen has everything you need! We'll be back.
Large circular cement area with central firepit. Large professional grade 'jungle gym' swing/slide/climb play set.
