This is a Lake Michigan cottage in every sense of the word, and a great place to unwind. Located just off Red Arrow Highway in the little town of Sawyer, you are just 5 minutes from Lake Michigan, in the middle of all that Harbor Country has to offer: antique stores, great restaurants, art galleries and boutique shopping. Sawyer is the perfect location: New Buffalo, Lakeside, Union Pier, Three Oaks and Lakeside are just minutes down the road. All the amenities you would expect in a quality rental including internet, washer/dryer, gas grill, screened in porch and more.

About Fred Silha
I love this cottage, and have had a wonderful time updating it and making it cozy for my family, friends and guests.
Fred Silha purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Fred Silha chose Sawyer
Everyone who stays at my cottage has great things to say, and many of my renters come back again and again. It's ideal for a family (kids love the bunk room), but also a nice place for a family reunion or a gathering of friends. There's ample room both inside and out to relax and make memories. Sawyer is a great little town, and is becoming kind of a hip, local scene for wine and beer enthusiasts and foodies, We are right down the road from New Buffalo but far enough away from the rush of the tourist areas to feel relaxing. The updated kitchen, screened three season room, everything about this place invites you to kick back and unwind!
What makes this Cottage unique
Very economical for a family or group of friends. A great alternative to hotels and B+B's. Stock up the fridge, cook some amazing dinners and relax in your own backyard. enjoy the use of our washer and make yourself at home! Then head out to the beach, just a few minutes away, using your car or one of our complementary bikes. This is how vacations should be!

Comfortable, beautiful indoors and out, CLEAN!
Our group of 8 adults had a wonderful weekend celebrating a special birthday at the wineries. The cabin was so charming. We loved the decorating and landscaping. Used the grill and well-appointed kitchen to prepare a few meals and enjoyed a bonfire in the evening. Perfect environment to relax and spend time with family and friends. We’ll be back!
Cozy & Comfortable
Perfect for our family! Cottage had everything we needed with plenty of room for everyone-- grand kids and grown ups all enjoyed the stay. Would love to come back in the summer.
Thanks so much for the nice review. We'll welcome you back when the weather is warmer!
Appreciate the place and chance to do homey things. Lots of back up options (spare LP tank). No worries. Played some corn hole and had a fire pit.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. The cornhole game is a new addition...a recommendation by previous guests. Please come back soon!
Our Weekend at Fred's
This is the 1st time we rented a cottage like this so didn't know what to expect. Awesome Harbor Country Cottage definitely exceeded our expectations. It literally rained over our entire 3 day weekend; but, the coziness and comfort of the cottage help make the weekend great. The owners were very accommodating; they provided fun ideas of outdoor (and indoor) things that we could actually do. We had our dogs so staying indoors the entire weekend wasn't an option; we did venture out to local towns and activities even in the rain. We were busy the entire weekend. "High-five" Awesome Harbor Country Cottage, thanks for a terrific weekend.
Lynn, thanks so much for the kind review. Despite the rainy weather, I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed my hospitality. Although this is a beach cottage by definition, I love the cottage on rainy and snowy days just as much! I welcome your return soon.
Perfect for families
We were 2 families (4 adults, 4 children) that stayed over the Columbus Day weekend. The cottage was clean, well stocked, had fast WiFi, and great location. Some of the things we loved about the house were the side yard and fire pit, the grill, the decor was very rustic, beds were comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed to cook a meal. These were just the highlights. We loved everything about our stay and were so happy we could bring our dog too. Working with Fred was easy and he was quick to respond to any questions we had. He also sent a great email before our stay with instructions for the house and places to eat and visit. Thanks for all your hospitality Fred! We will be back again for another visit soon!
....and I will be thrilled to have you back! I'm adding some new ideas to my recommendation list this Fall, so the next time you visit there will be even more stuff to try out. I really appreciate your kind words.
Great Weekend Get-Away
This is the second time we stayed at this property and it was just as lovely this year as last. The cottage is the perfect size for our extended family of 4 adults and 2 kids, with sleeping space to spare. The owner upgraded the water pressure this year, and it is amazing. The kitchen is well stocked and it is easy to get everywhere we want to go from this cottage. Hopefully we will return next year!
So glad you enjoyed your second stay. Yes, the water pressure is getting great reviews! Looking forward to having you and your family back soon.
