About Owner/Property Manager

We are Chicago natives who moved to Michigan in 1991. The property has been in our family since the early 1900's. I have spent my summers growing up staying in our summer only cottage. This ranch style house was built in 2003 as a retirement home for my parents and we have since bought it to continue the tradition of spending quality family time in southwestern Michigan.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Southwest

This home offers year round protection from the weather with a quiet feel of the woods to take a break from the fun in the sun on the beach. If the weather doesn't cooperate, there is plenty of activities to do in the Harbor Country area for all ages.

What makes this house unique

The biggest draw is the beach. Lake Michigan beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world. With no salt, clean fine sand, no sea weed or sea creatures to interfere with swimming, sandcastles, sports or just relaxing and watching the sun set.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this spacious house. It met all our needs. Sheets were their own (no linen service - yea!), the house clean and well kept. We never felt cramped or on top of each other and had 8-10 people there at one time or another. Very convenient to the casino where we attended a concert. We had an outstanding time!

Sagewood House very nice.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the Sagewood House. It has a nice open concept and the screened in porch. The beach is a short walk. We had a nice family vacation and appreciate being able to have the family dog along.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sagewood. This was our family vacation ... My husband and I and our two daughters and their families which is 6 adults, 3 kids (3, 2, and 21 months), and 2 dogs. The kids (big and little) loved the basement. We found plenty of stuff to do. We took the kids to the Kids Museum and Washington zoo. They loved the splash pad in New Buffalo and the beach. The house had plenty of room for all of us and we especially enjoyed having a bathroom for each family. House was equipped with everything we needed. Great place to stay!
