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.

My family had a blast this past weekend at your cottage. We grilled burgers, played bocce outside in the yard, had foosball tournament, and air hockey a plenty. Thanks for the hospitality and I would definitely stay here again next time.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to this home and it was, again, wonderful! It is close to the beach access and has enough space for everyone to feel like they have a place to go. We go up with another family and had more then enough room for both our families. The house is always clean and easy to take care of. We look forward to another trip up!

Gem in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 along with two other families and their kids stayed for a long weekend recently. We were very happy with our stay and wouldn't change a thing. House was very clean and beds were comfortable. The basement was AMAZING! If the kids weren't down there having a blast, the dads were battling it out on the air hockey table. Short walk to the beach was easy even with coolers and 4-6yr olds. Stairs down to the beach aren't terrible. We've been coming to the area for a few years now and most beach access requires somewhat of a hike.

Great for a family get-together

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our bi-annual family get-together. There was plenty of room for everyone, even when it was cold and rainy one day. It is a bit of a walk to the beach and there are lots of stairs, but the beach is beautiful (another option, Berrien Beach, is south of the house at the terminus of Berrien Street on Lakeshore Road. It’s a longer walk, but no stairs). Having access to laundry was great, as was the dishwasher. The three-season porch was a great spot to relax. The owners were easy to work with and their parents were friendly in showing us around and answering our questions. Lots of toys and games in the basement to keep kids busy, although the basement is chilly, so bring socks or slippers! All-in-all: a great spot – highly recommended!

Bachelor Party

  • 5 of 5

I came here with 8 other guys for a friend's bachelor party.

The Sagewood was a great choice and came better than advertised.

The walk to the beach was very quick and we barely saw any other people on the beach since it was a private beach (and also early in the season).

The house was quite large and had so many beds. Even with nine of us no one had to share a bed and there were still extras.

The basement was a lot of fun with the air hockey table and fooseball table and the poker table. We also did a little PS2 gaming.

We did a lot of grilling on the porch and cooking in the kitchen. The tools there were plenty to cook almost any meal.

The only issue we had was not enough table space so we took the dining room table and put it in the enclosed porch area with the table out there to make one larger table. Great idea during the summer when its warm but won't work when its cold.

All in all a great stay! Would definitely recommend the Sagewood to friends and would return for a future vacation.
