About Elizabeth Crites Chintapalli

My husband and I are delighted to share our lake house with you! We know you will love it as much as we do.

I have always loved traveling, learning about different cultures, and meeting new people. I have lived in four different countries and four states and still treasure my friendships from each of these places. My very favorite spot in the world is this lake house in Sawyer, Michigan and I love to share it with others. I now split my time between Chicago where I practice law and Sawyer, where I simply relax!

My husband and I are available to assist you in any way. We hope to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible!

Why Elizabeth Crites Chintapalli chose Southwest

While just an hour and a half from Chicago, this place couldn't feel any further away. We chose this property because we can really get away from everything, but still are close to great restaurants, breweries, shops, art galleries, distilleries, and amazing hiking, biking, and cross-country ski trails.

Loved everything about this property...

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful. The skylights and white/off white décor brighten it up and have a definite beachy feel. The house was stocked with everything you can think of. The wooded lot with the fire pit and hot tub was great for relaxing at the end of the day. Although it is not on the beach, a short walk is all it takes to enjoy the Lake Michigan private beach. We walked to the beach with ease, even with a baby and recent open heart surgery patient. I would recommend this house to anyone.

perfect couples weekend set up

  • 5 of 5

Great location and set up for 3 couples. Great amenities and instructions on every aspect of house and stay. Super cute, comfy and private. Only a couple hours from Illinois but feels a million miles away. Our little deer came each day to see us. Great for hitting wineries and breweries. Will be back. Thank you, Elizabeth, for a perfect stay. It was just the relaxing visit we all needed!

Perfect Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This place was PERFECTION for our girls weekend! Very easy to get to yet you felt miles away from anything. We loved the layout/design of this home-it felt compact and spacious at the same time. With four of us we loved the 3 bathrooms! Everything was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The beds were super comfy and there were plenty of towels and blankets if you needed to snuggle! We got incredibly lucky with the weather (60's and 70's) and so the best thing for us was the fire pit! Great Adirondack chairs, an electric start to the gas fire pit, clear skies and amazing stars made for perfect memories and lots of relaxing.

Finally, this was probably the best communication I've ever had from an owner. Elizabeth was out of the country yet credited my security deposit the very next day after we left. She made the entire process simple and I appreciate that!

PS Don't forget to go into the town of Sawyer-Greenbush-such yummy food!

Perfect layout for 3 couples

  • 5 of 5

We've been doing an annual weekend retreat for nearly 2 decades with the same couples--3 couples total--and always prefer staying in a home that has at least 3 full bathrooms so that none of us have to share. We also like a home that has a nice vibe and layout that enables all of us to comfortably watch TV at the same time and prepare and eat meals together. This home provides all of that and more (a hot tub and firepit). It's also a very short drive from the Warren Dunes State Park and several of the quaint towns in this region of SW Michigan, and the owner is a pleasure to interact with. We will definitely stay here again if we're able.

Beautiful home in privacy

  • 5 of 5

We were able to enjoy a family weekend in Elizabeth's beautiful house. It was the perfect size for our family of 5 (two couples and a teenager), we each had our own bedroom and bathroom, but the common areas were large and comfortable for all. The house was exceptionally clean, and was well stocked with quality necessities. The grounds were beautiful and we were treated to a family of deer crossing the property several times during our stay.

The best part about our stay hands down was our hostess. We had a small mishap on thanksgiving day, she was available immediately and went above and beyond making it right. Don't hesitate to rent for your next vacation, you won't be disappointed.
