Guestbook comments from the manager

Several friends and I stayed at the main house in April. The weather was chilly but perfect for cooking meals in the enormous kitchen (all needed pots/cutting boards/utensils provided) and drinking wine near the fire-place. The property was very well maintained and the house beautifully decorated. Even though it was a little cold, we took a walk on the beach (right outside the back door) and into the cute little town for coffee, about a mile. I could not have asked for a better vacation house and cannot wait to go back again!

This was the perfect home for a weekend getaway. Even with the cooler weather, the home was cozy and the view was remarkable. The house was very clean and the manager was very easy and accommodating!

Best of Both Worlds

I enjoyed our stay at the Sawyer Cottage very much. The Cottage was clean, comfortable, and modern on the inside, yet rustic and close to nature on the outside. The view of Lake Michigan was incredible.

A Beautiful Location with an Outstanding View!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late in the evening -- but we were pleasantly greeted with enough lighting around the cottage and then when we turned the lights on in the cottage -- WOW! is about all we could say. The furnishings were so inviting, and we immediately felt comfortable. We took the stairs down to Lake Michigan where we observed other guests in the area having a bonfire on the beach. The sound of the waves were so refreshing! We couldn't wait for the morning to see the lake better -- walked the beach, picked up special stones, etc. We couldn't have asked for a better place than the Sawyer Cottage. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting a beautiful get-a-way -- this place is the place!
