After searching for the perfect Michigan cottage for three years... I came upon a lot in Sawyer Michigan that was calling my name. So thirteen years ago I built my own! I selected all the materials incorporated into the home. What a fun creative process.
Yellow Bird Vacations purchased this cottage in 1999
I live in a high density area in Chicago and thought it would be great to have a get away spot and a little land. This property has beautiful mature white pines, tulip ,maple, oak, cherry, and cottonwood trees. It is a natural forest with a little creek that runs behind the property. I have added a little garden but you cannot beat God's handiwork. I love to sit on my screened in porch with a glass of wine and watch the birds. The stress of city life melts away. I have many a fond memory with good friends and family here... and you will too! This is a great house for entertaining. The dinning room is large with a table that can seat 10 and a bay window overlooking the back garden.
Short hike to the beach and the dunes, quiet cool woods, beautiful in all four seasons, close to Sawyers restaurants and shops.... relax on the porch, grill dinner, hot tub,... or build a fire in the outdoor fire pit.
Southwest Michigan's biggest attraction is the Warren Dunes State park. You can walk for miles along the beautiful sand beach and swim, boat, jet ski, fish, or kayak. There are great opportunities for shopping and dinning all along a ten mile stretch on Red Arrow Highway that runs from New Buffalo to Sawyer. The Sawyer Garden Center is a must! Plants and local Michigan produce galore along with just about anything you would need. If you cannot find it there, the Sawyer grocery store is across the street. Adjacent to the garden center is Fitzgeralds' restaurant and Green Bush our local beer brewery! The antique/furniture shops are wonderful. Check out Charm Cottage, Lovell + Whyte, Sojourn, and Fritz Olsens'. Favorite eateries are The Road House, Fitzgeralds, Soe. Inland a few miles are wineries in Buchanan such as Tabor Hill (which also has a great restaurant), The Round Barn, and Lemon Creek.
