Michael, The shepherd boy of William Wordsworth's poetry, lived at his nook in the beautiful Lake District of England. Ours is in Sawyer, Michigan.
Those who have stayed here tell us there is no place in Harbor Country more charming than this wonderfully furnished secluded cottage on three acres surrounded by woods yet only a ten minute walk to our own private beach access.
Relax by the 40'x20' heated pool on resort style furniture. See if you can count and identify all of the birds that also come to visit. There are pool toys and floats for the kids and the kids at heart.
Don't be surprised if you awake in the morning to see a doe tending her fawns, a raccoon eating berries, a jackrabbit, or all of those red and gray squirrels looking for whatever they run around looking for.
You may want to read a book in either the English or Asian garden.(Those birds and other wild life may be there too. Maybe you want to stroll down to our gorgeous beach. (The bluffs will remind you of New England's Martha's Vineyard.) If you do, stay to watch one of our fabulous Southwestern Michigan sunsets.
The Chicago Tribune on June 9,2002 said: "Tour goers might want to save Vicki Michaels' 7 acres of gardens in Sawyer, Michigan for last. Walking on the fieldstone-lined paths through plantings that include hibiscus, daylilies, peonies, hostas, honeysuckle, hydrangeas, lilies of the valley, rhododendrons, roses and flowing trees and bushes has the same relaxing effect as a long massage." Two of those gardens are here for you.
Maybe you want to spend more time in the Cranny? If it's raining (which is rare) you can sit outside on the large screened porch. If you like to barbecue there is a large covered grill for you to use. You could spend the evening inside watching television or a rental movie from the local video store, but this activity is not recommended.
Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic setting - a group of friends wanting to get away - or a family with children - The Cranny is for you.
In addition to our beach, we are only a mile from Warren Dunes State Park where you can drive to the water and find facilities for children.
WE ARE LOCATED 1/2 MILE WEST OF THE RED ARROW HIGHWAY NEAR SOME OF THE BEST RESTAURANTS, SHOPPING AND ANTIQUING IN HARBOR COUNTRY
WE WELCOME YOUR VISIT!
