About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + , 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

A five-minute stroll to downtown Three Oaks, Vickers Theatre, Featherbone Factory, Acorn Theatre, Journeyman Distillery, art galleries and unique shops—PERCH affords its guests a comfortable and contemporary experience that merges small town life and a country setting. It has striking architectural features embellished with unique and artistic furnishings and décor. Technology includes a 55” satellite television and fast speed internet.

Guests can spend their down time serenely gazing at the nearly 360-degree bird’s eye view of the pastoral setting (field, yard, forest, residential charm), perching within a hanging cocoon/ a hammock/ a vintage hotel chair while others play lawn games, grabbing a bundle of hula hoops for an impromptu dance party, enjoying a soak in the hot tub overlooking the vista, watching sports or movies on the big screen or master bedroom TV, peacefully relaxing in the numerous rocking chairs, reading poetry in bed while looking up at the Michigan stars as seen through skylight windows, sitting around the fire pit (which seats six), cooking dinner for the expansive family table or for something al fresco—on the deck, in the lovely small-town-dusk. Indeed, the perching possibilities are as endless as the sky itself.

PERCH has three and a half bedrooms (clad in 100% cotton bedding), including a master bedroom with en-suite bath and a loft space tall enough to stand in. It sleeps 6+ easily. Other spaces include a large living room; fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, counters and stools; a dining area that can expand to seat 8-10; and a sunroom perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view. Perch contains these notable features: skylights in three rooms, a bathroom with a deep soaking tub/shower, master bath walk-in shower with soothing multiple jets, full size washer and dryer, collection of rocking chairs, board and lawn games, books of poetry, and the pleasing quiet of a country setting.

Outside enjoy the brand new hot tub (seats 6), the peaceful views, the large side and back decks, the ambience of the fire pit, the fun of playing outside in the expansive yards and the restful swinging of hammocks under the trees. Use the new classic Weber grill to make a meal and dine al fresco. All is thoughtfully fashioned to create the utter magic of a lazy vacation in a lovely cottage.

For wandering: take a brief and scenic drive to Lake Michigan’s beaches, to Warren Dunes, to kayak rentals by the Galien River, to adventure in the casinos, to other small towns’ restaurants and sidewalks, or simply along the many little highways of the region—leading to wineries, farmers’ markets, and ice cream shops.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I have owned and managed rental property for over 30 years and have had a second home in Harbor Country for years. After retiring from teaching I decided to devote my energies to creating and curating a unique and satisfying vacation rental home. I have selected Perch’s supplies, décor, and art objects with the intent of creating a transcendent but easy space in which to relax: with friends, with family, in a large group or an intimate one, for special occasions or simply to escape. My family includes an historian, visual artists, and poets—and I have tried to translate that sensibility to this lovely cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Three Oaks, MI, USA:
Three Oaks is an historic American small town with contemporary establishments. The town is five miles to the beaches of Lake Michigan and surrounded by picturesque farm fields. It is conveniently located to numerous destinations in Indiana and Michigan. When I saw this house I knew it was the perfect vacation rental property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
PERCH is extraordinary! The views are exceptional. Woods and farm fields combine to form the exceptionally peaceful vistas. The cottage itself has been splendidly updated to create a perfect getaway. It can be enjoyed in ALL seasons. The location and the amenities contribute to memorable experiences for all.
