BEAUTIFUL HARBOR COUNTRY COTTAGE

Sawyer Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom sleeps 6

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.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • children welcome

COZY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for our family trip. When we pulled up to the cottage we were pleasantly surprised. Everythig was perfect. When we arrived we had fresh bread, bottle of wine, cheese and fresh flowers waiting for us. A nice touch from Vicki. The pool was R&R. The gardens were beautiful. The beach was walking distance. The cottage was cozy, quaint, peaceful and clean. She had luxury linens and everything we needed for our week stay was there. We were very happy and would definitely recommend this place to others. Vicki was a sweetheart and made our stay memorable.

WONDERFULLY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend staying in this heavenly cottage. The second I stepped foot out of my car the peace set in. The accomodations are cozy and comfortable with fresh air throughout. I stayed to celebrate my birthday and Vicki was so amazing! Prior to my arrival we emailed back and forth and I was able to see she is truly a wonderful person. I had already felt very welcomed. She sent the directions and even suggested hiking trails for my dog, Murphy, and I to enjoy. I knew I had picked the right rental. Upon arrival my favorite flowers (sunflowers) were on the table. The "awww" moments didn't stop there. Also waiting were fresh bread, peaches, blueberries, wine and cheese, a chilled bottle of champagne in the fridge, and even a birthday card. We recived a personal escort to the beach. The path to the private beach is like opening a much anticipated present. First you feel the sand, then you hear the waves, then the view opens up, and it's just breathtaking. The pool on the property is so amazingly beautiful, like a resort only private and just for you complete with comfy furniture, a hot tub, and inflatable pool floaties. The grounds are expansive with beautiful gardens for quiet moments of reflection and peace. The bedrooms are very restful with super comfy beds for sweet dreams. An amazingly memorable time was had by all. My mom made a friend, Murphy fell in love with the gigantic screened in porch and enjoyed napping poolside, and I remembered why I have always loved Harbor Country so much. I feel extremely fortunate to have met Vicki. Thank you for making our stay so wonderfully perfect.
Words truly don't do this cottage justice. You have to stay and experience it!

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at several rental homes via homeaway.com, and this wonderful cottage is our favorite. No set of pictures could do it justice. It is quaint, clean, and in a beautiful, quiet, peaceful setting. The view out of the large,wonderful screened porch and every window is mature landscaping, including lots of trees. The three acre setting includes beautiful landscaping , and a large heated and very private pool and hot tub. The house is so private that it cannot be seen from the road. It's not only the house but also the beautiful property that makes this well worth the rental cost.

LOVELY PROPERTY; GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
This was a very lovely cottage. Well organized & well maintained. The beds were very comfortable with nice quality linens and wonderful pillows. The screened in porch was our 'go to' place for meals and relaxing..very pleasant. The pool is quite large, clean and very relaxing. The beach is a short drive.. or a 15 minute walk.. about 3/4 of a mile, to a beautiful lake Michigan beach! I recommend that you call Vicki for directions when you arrive. Many road-end beaches are just down the Red Arrow Highway as well. This cottage is convenient to restaurants and markets but feels tucked away in the woods and quite private. Great space for 5 people and our black lab. We were very pleased and enjoyed our stay

GOT JUST WHAT WE NEEDED AT THE CRANNY!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, newborn son and I just spent five days at the Cranny. It was post Labor Day so didn't have that hot summer heat some of you might be looking for, but I just can't say enough about the Cranny and Vicki. I did a little swimming in their beautiful pool and enjoyed several morning and late night soaks in the hot tub while we were there. Even saw some great wildlife right on the property - a few deer, a very large and beautiful beige colored owl, couple of humming birds near the pool, etc. The beach was just a very short drive away, and we enjoyed a day at the beach too!

I will criticize Vicki a little bit for underselling the amenities in the ad. We asked about a stove and oven since it wasn't listed, and this got a chuckle out of Vicki. Once we arrived at the Cranny, we realized why. Yes, it has an oven ;-) She also had some fresh fruit and bread waiting for us in the kitchen - along with a very stocked kitchen - a small cuisinart, coffee pot and grinder, plates, bowls, silverware, knives, cutting boards. I know I'm forgetting to list a lot of things here, but the point is that the kitchen is well stocked!!

I'd be doing you all a disservice if I failed to mention the screened in porch. Breakfast never tasted so good being surrounded by all the pines and wildlife. Oh and Vicki also recommended a sculpture hike nearby - my expectations were very low on this, but it turned out to be a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours!

Have questions or concerns? Ask Vicki. She was incredibly accommodating.
