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. There are pool toys and floats for the kids.
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.
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. Green Bush Brewery is half a mile away.
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!
Arrived to find 2 ladies at The Cranny. We had booked and emailed Greg 3 or 4 times in the last 6 weeks. Got a confirmation and he sent us the Homeaway app to use for driving directions, etc. The 2 ladies had booked it for 1 week, and we had booked for 4 nights. They had driven in from Chicago. We had driven 4.5 hours from south central Illinois. Needless to say , we were pretty upset. It was late on a Friday and we couldn't just drive home! The 2 ladies indicated they hadn't spoken to owners, but tried to call 3 times that day. Also, they had been emailing , but had no response.
I had asked Greg if he needed a deposit, but he indicated no, that we could pay in full upon arrival. Thank goodness, we were not out any money! The place looked clean, but somewhat rundown. The pool was detached from the yard...a quick walk next door. Many reviews had indicated awesome owners who had wine, cheese, flowers waiting your arrival. Didn't see any of this.
Luckily, we were able to get a hotel in New Buffalo.
My GF and I had been looking forward to our 4 night stay at this property for over 5 months from the day we booked it back at the end of February, 2016... or should I say THOUGHT we booked it!! The owner double booked us with a family of 6, even after we spoke over the phone and receiving two confirmation emails. He said he had no record of this! We got a simple apology from the owner and nothing more. We were crushed, as you can imagine!!
Be careful this does not happen to you! PAY UP FRONT. Don't let this owner talk you into not paying until you arrive, saying "this is how I like to do things". This is what happened to us! When you take your hard earned vacation time from work, you don't want to have to sit at home... Good luck!
My husband and I rented this cabin the day after our wedding for a "mini-moon." It was cozy, clean and beautiful. Sitting on the screened in porch felt like we were in a tree house. After the craziness of wedding planning, the private pool deck and hot tub were exactly what we needed. Stocked with everything we needed to cook a meal. When we did leave, the cottage was a short distance from yummy restaurants, vineyards, breweries and farms. The sunsets at the beach were perfect, we had the coast to ourselves. Vicki was always a phone call away for anything we had questions about. We can't wait to come back and we recommended it to all our friends.
What a fabulously relaxing vacation away from the big city! Marvelous location, wonderful stay. We had everything we needed and more. All the little touches and conveniences made our stay over and above what we imagined. Such a clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage decorated ever so lovely. I really loved that the linens were great quality and smelled wonderful.
We enjoyed the gorgeous beach & hiking the dunes at the state park with our dog! We visited the fruit and meat markets and got fresh local foods to grill for dinner. We took a scenic and beautiful drive to a winery. We stayed for 4 days and really could've stayed for more. Vicki was a the perfect host...very kind and available for anything we needed. She also had a bottle of wine waiting for us upon our arrival which was most appreciated! We definitely look forward to returning next season :)
My family and I stayed at this charming home the week following the 4th of July(2103)- The house itself is very nice and clean, as well as tastefully decorated. The owner Vicki is a very generous and gracious host, and even allowed us to bring our dog, which seemed to enjoy the property as much us we did. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained and are highlighted by an amazing pool and gardens. The property location is located close to a beautiful private beach and is close to the highway, which can easily take you to all the charming surrounding towns. Overall the vacation was extremely relaxing, fun, and beautiful. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a Michigan beach vacation.
Me and my boyfriend stayed here with another couple and had a great time. Our friends dogs were allowed to stay in the cottage and the host Vicki went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. The hot tub was awesome while the snow fell on our heads and the less then a mile walk to the great restaurant "Soe cafe" was so good. The place was very clean and organized and we loved the wood burning stove. We will be back for sure!
Sawyer is home to Green Bush Brewery, and Sawyer Garden Center. Also features a coffee shop "Infusco" that roasts the coffee on sight.
