About Ramona

We are an active family who loves the outdoors. Generations of our families have enjoyed southwest Michigan and we decided to buy a home there in 2005. Some of our favorite things to do are go for walks on the beach, hike the Tower Hill sand dune, go fruit picking, browse antique stores on Red Arrow Highway and find joy in the simple pleasures of life. We hope you enjoy our home and create your own memories there.

Ramona purchased this cottage in 2005

Welcoming home!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a fantastic week at Dunestar. The home is spotlessly clean, comfortable, and includes everything we needed to enjoy a week at the beach and exploring the Red Arrow Highway. Our kids loved the basement toys, the books, games, and the beach toys. With several sitting spaces, everyone in our large group was able to find a place to relax and read or catch up with each other. Thank you for such a great experience!

Beautiful Week at the Dunes!

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoyed a great week in Sawyer. We're from Michigan and had never stayed this far south on Lake Michigan before and we loved the area. Our daughter was able to take the train from Chicago into New Buffalo (only 15 minutes away) and join us. We golfed, hiked, rode bikes, swam, hung out on the beach, and watched breathtaking sunsets from Warren Dunes (only a short walk or short drive).
The cottage is spotlessly clean and well decorated. My mother and sisters came out at the end of the week for a girls get-together and couldn't stop raving about Dunestar. Thank You!

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My family & I had a wonderful weekend at the cottage. We've spent a fair bit of time in Michigan, and this was by far the nicest house we've rented. The location to Warren Dunes is excellent. The house is thoughtfully and wonderfully equipped - the pictures do NOT do it justice! We have 2 young kids and the owners have provided everything you would need for young children - down to kid sized silverware and a booster seat. We will definitely be back!

Delightful cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Dunestar was perfect! The kitchen was excellently equipped, and not with castoffs of other kitchens. The furniture was in great shape, the beds were comfortable, and the cottage was spotless. We loved the outdoor shower and screened porch. We had a wonderful time.

OUR FAMILY LOVED THIS HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 stayed at this home for a week and had a great time. It was clean, cozy and comfortable! We especially enjoyed our walk to the beach and our kids loved the Warren Dunes. The home is located in a lovely location in Sawyer, Michigan, near New Buffalo where we like to eat at the Stray Dog Cafe. We have stayed at many beach houses in Michigan and Indiana and this home was the best by far! The fresh fruit and vege stand nearby was great for cooking and eating meals on the enclosed screened porch was very relaxing. My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary on this trip so it was very memorable.
