Why Tim and Nancy Thompson chose Harbert
It is easy to feel the stress of daily life escape as soon as you exit off the highway into this serene and peaceful Southeast Michigan town of Harbert. This area is a great location for day trips to nearby Michigan towns of St Joe or Kalamazoo or simply a short bike ride to downtown sawyer for a local beer and to stroll through a few local shops. We enjoy the escape from Chicago whether it was a quick overnight mid week or a long weekend. We always count down the days upon our return for when we could go back.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our property faces a beautiful red barn on a quiet road that originally housed small ponies. We could sit on our front porch and connect to nature and watch the horses from across the way. The sky lights and windows around the entire house allow so much light into the home that it always feels sunny inside. The amazing green 2 acres of woods make this home a magical escape from daily life and fun to explore and walk the circular trail or do sunset at one of the many gorgeous Michigan beaches.

This little gem of a cottage surprises with a spacious living area and 3 bedrooms! Easy access to a variety of entertainments as well. Well equipped kitchen and multiple seating areas both in and outside.
The cottage was beautiful! Decorated wonderfully. Clean. Came with everything we could think of. Communication and instructions were great. Our group really enjoyed our stay. Wish we could’ve stayed longer.
Great place to stay!
This house is super comfortable and has all the immenities you need for a great stay. I highly recommend it for anyone needing to relax and unwind. The house is surronded by beautiful landscaping and lush forest and is beautifully decorated.
Second year we have spent Labor Day at barefoot. We plan a third.
Thankyou Nancy and Tim
A great cozy hidden gem
My family and I stayed just a few days but we were overly impressed with the house and the owners. Would definitely consider renting again.
What a beautiful home. Nestled in the woods and only a short drive to the beach. Charming and clean!
One of the nicest rentals I’ve stayed in. Hosts were very communicative and prompt with responses. House was clean and extremely comfortable for a family of four, including two little ones. The deck and fire pit are surrounded by the woods and beautiful trees. A great setting for relaxation and close to Sawyer for GB brewing visits and Cherry Beach. Would highly recommend if you are looking to rent in this area.
Thanks Matt- We truly enjoyed having you as guests and are so glad you enjoyed all that Harbor Country has to offer- including our house! Have a great rest of the summer and hope you all will come back some time in the future.
