About the Property

3 BR 1.5 BA Sleeps 6

Nestled in the woods in the heart of Harbor Country is the historical Coach House at the Flynn Estate. The Coach House offers privacy and luxury just a short distance from downtown Sawyer & Lake Michigan. Relax on our acre yard with your family and friends around the fire, or explore the beauty of the surrounding woods. Just a short drive to Warren Dunes State Park, and Downtown Three Oaks, and only a quick bike ride to Greenbush Brewery, Infusco Coffee Cafe, Catherine Doll Designs, Go Fish, Scarlett Macaw Art Center, Fitzgeralds, and the Sawyer Garden Center in downtown Sawyer.

The Coach House is a fully renovated second story walk up over our main garage with it's own private entrance and large private deck. Designed with an updated Mid-Century modern theme, the Coach House has everything you need for a quick get away or a relaxing vacation.

The kitchen has been designed with the chef in mind. There is an induction cook top, built in oven, microwave, and all the accessories you will need to create the perfect feast. There is also a large grill on the deck for your quintessential summer time cookouts.

The master bedroom has a king bed with it's own private half bath. The second room has a comfortable queen, and the third bedroom is fitted with two twins.

The main room focus is our modern and inviting fireplace, with a large sectional sofa, and our custom made dining table. Everything ready for all your entertaining needs with a flat screen TV, free WiFi, and a vintage turntable fully stocked with records of the era. We also supply some vintage games and cards for fun.

The Flynn Estate was built in the 1920's by John Flynn. He was the treasurer of the Teamsters in Chicago and this was his summer & weekend getaway. There are stories of boot legging and gangster activity, including history of Al Capone.

The Coach House is a pet friendly and non smoking property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are a family of three and currently reside in the Bungalow at The Flynn Estate. I am the Executive Administrator at JohnsonRauhoff in St. Joseph, MI. My husband and I own an inventory business in Chicago, and our daughter is about to start her second year at CalArts in Character Animation . The Coach house is actually my former studio. For 12 years I created ceramic works that were shown nationally. We have a true passion for Mid Century antiques, and eclectic design. We also own a 1969 Airstream that we pull around the country exploring and creating memories. We relocated to Sawyer from Evanston in 2000, and have never been sorry.We love the small town feel and our ability to pull out of our drive on our bikes and disappear for miles on the back country roads.

Why the Owner Chose Sawyer, MI, USA:
We love the fact that we fell upon a 'Chicago Bungalow' in the woods! We felt at home almost instantly, and it wasn't until after the fact that we learned the history of the property. Apparently we live in a home built by very characteristic people, who were involved in boot legging and other questionable activities of their time. We love the privacy and seclusion of the house and coach house, and it's connection to downtown Sawyer. We feel we are care takers, and we are trying to bring this marvelous home back to it's glory days.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The privacy of our acre surrounded by woods gives you the feel that you are alone and secluded. But in reality you are only a short drive to all the fun Harbor Country has to offer. Guests will love the abundance of wineries, breweries, Lake Michigan sunsets, antique malls, hiking trails, biking routes, kayaking, boating, festivals, casinos, and much more. We are also just a short distance to Notre Dame and Andrews Universities.
