Why Tim and Nancy Thompson chose Chikaming Township
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.

Gorgeous, well decorated retreat!
This is truly a hidden-gem. We were originally looking for a cabin on the lake or with "lake access" and found the Barefoot Cabin by chance and are so glad we did. It is on a quiet road, in the woods and with the Cherry Beach parking pass included with the rental, you're only a short drive and then 55 stairs to the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan! (Beach chairs are available for use during your stay). This cottage looks like it is out of the pages of a Pottery Barn catalog. My dream house! :). Enjoy everything Harbor County has to offer without the traffic and parking issues found in downtown New Buffalo. This is a perfect location, short drive down Red Arrow Highway to the south to be in New Buffalo or to the North to Warren Dunes, Bridgman or 5 mins To Greenbush Brewery. Check out Journeyman Distillery in River Oaks.
This House has everything you need to cook meals and enjoy the outdoors. Drink your coffee on the beautiful screened in porch, grill a great dinner on the gas grill (spices and condiments are provided) and then roast marshmallows over a fire in the firepit. This house makes you feel "at home"
From the moment you walk in the front door. We will be staying here again next year. :) Thanks for a great stay!
This experience has set the bar.
This home is beautiful inside and out. It’s the most well-appointed rental you could ever ask for.
We felt like we were in heaven all weekend along from the screened in porch, to the gorgeous kitchen, to the amazing bed linens – everything was put together with much care.
This experience has truly set the bar.
Lovely home for a Southwestern Michigan getaway
We found the home very cozy and comfortable, with all the amenities we could hope for.
Loved this house! Can't wait to return!! Very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend this home!
We would give it 10 Stars if we could!
Perfect winter weekend for a group of busy friends to really hunker in, this home is not only gorgeous, but beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need to have a relaxing and comfortable stay, from the roaring fires (with fresh stack of wood provided just outside the door) to extra comfy beds and warm cozy blankets. Super clean, and decorated to perfection. This house is perfect regardless of the season! So so close to 3 Oaks and a bunch of cute shops and great restaurants. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here and we plan on making this a yearly get away!
What a beautiful, comfortable home! Loved the colors and décor. Surrounding woods - what a lovely sight to wake up to every day!
Only complaint - the twin bed (near the window) is very uncomfortable - very hard - the other one is fine!!!
Beautiful vacation area located one hour and fifteen minutes from downtown Chicago. Feel like you are far away! Beach community with shops, restaurants, outdoor festivals, farmers markets, wine tours and the beach. Red Arrow Highway boasts good eateries and antique shops for vacation time fun. Bring your bikes and beach towels!
Additional information about rental rates
Check in at 4:00 PM, EST and check out at 11:00 AM EST. (Sometimes we can accommodate later checkout, not in season). What's the The $100.00 Refundable Damage deposit all about? The house has a security system. Upon arrival and stay if the alarm is set off (false alarm) there will be a $100.00 False alarm fee that will be collected (local ordinance). If you follow the directions as outlined on the house information we send you- this should not be a problem. Additional fee for small children taking count to over 6 may apply. Work with owner.
