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

Good place to stay
We stayed here on an off season trip to the area for fishing. The owner has all the correct boxes checked: Good towels, nice comfortable beds, clean place, condiments and cooking oil, hotel soap and shampoo, easy entry and access and good directions. We had no complaints, price matched quality and expectations.
Weekend in Michigan
Went to this cottage with some friends for a weekend getaway and we enjoyed it very much. The cottage was cozy in the rain and everything we needed was supplied by the owner. We went to local restaurants and wineries and played some board games and watched some movies that were in the cottage. A good weekend was had by all and we would definitely return! (Also, the master bedroom was great and had a really comfortable bed 😊
Great cottage for a weekend
We were looking for a quiet, relaxing fall weekend away and got what we were looking for. The cottage is well appointed and comfortable for a couple or a family. Good location close to several good restaurants, breweries and wineries for drinking/dining. Also close to warren dunes for a hike during nice weather. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and charming on the inside. Lots of nice amenities to help your stay. The owner was very nice and easy to work with. We enjoyed our stay.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the gracious comments.
Property was clean and well stocked. Due to the cold weather, we spent a lot of time inside and the firewood provided was appreciated.
Thanks for the positive review. The cottage is a 4-season place and the fireplace is one of my favorite features. Please come back soon!
Country Charm & Warmth with Modern Convenience
Centrally located to take advantage of all that southwestern Michigan has to offer from New Buffalo to St. Joseph. Go to nearby sandy beaches, dining, antique hunting, fruit picking and then return to the comfort and charm of the cottage. Relax in the screened in porch or have some smores at the firepit.
If you have a wedding to attend in nearby Three Oaks at Blissful Barn or Journeyman's Distillery, this is the perfect accommodation.
Fred is very responsive, helpful and flexible. Thank you, Fred, for making our stay carefree and enjoyable.
