About Pam Lynch
I live in downtown Chicago and I love the energy and everything the city has to offer; however, I live for the moment I can escape to Harbor Country in Southwest Michigan. Within an hour and a half I'm here...all the stress of everyday life melts away and I feel on 'vacation' even when I'm here less than 24 hours. I also experience great joy in sharing my home with family and friends. And now that I'm renting my home, I feel the same happiness as my guests report in and recount how much they enjoyed the home, the nearby beaches and the country setting. I feel very lucky to be the owner of 'It's a Dog's Life Getaway'.
Pam Lynch purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Pam Lynch chose Harbert
I purchased this home because of it's easy access from the highway, yet you feel completely removed and isolated. I also wanted a home that was set back from the road, had a large yard for my dogs, offering them freedom in a secure environment. I love the open floor plan with high ceilings, yet feels cozy and warm. I also always wanted to 'rock' on a front porch and have a screened in porch...I never tire of relaxing in these areas with a magazine, cup of coffee and dogs under foot.
What makes this Cottage unique
Although I seek the feeling of being 'remote' while here, I love that within minutes you can be at the beach, satisfy a 'purchase' urge at one of the many boutique style shops, and find a good meal at a small restaurant for breakfast. lunch and dinner. I don't feel the area is 'touristy' or commercial, even though most people here are enjoying a vacation. A recent surprise was how fun the wineries are to visit...especially on bikes. The area is enjoyable each season and by no means is just 'a summer home'.

Relaxing Quaint Get Away
This was a lovely home in a nice location. Check in / host communication was prompt and friendly. Everything was clean, and had everything we needed. We had a great time with family / visiting the area. Would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful home and dog friendly. We had a wonderful and relaxing weekend.
Great getaway (for dogs and humans!)
We had a wonderful stay! Our dog had a blast exploring the large fenced-in yard and chasing all the chipmunks. And we enjoyed hanging out on the screened-in porch and around the fireplace in the evenings. We look forward to returning!
It’s a dogs life
The house and property were perfect for us. The owner Pam was very accommodating. My dog was in heaven here with the great fenced in yard and sun porch. We will definitely be back
Its a dogs life is the best Michigan rental we have experienced in more than 20 years! The owner provides everything needed for a comfortable stay. But the best part is the backyard. It is a delight for dog parents and doggies. There is beautiful landscaping (not overly fragile) and tons of ways for dogs to explore! I know our dogs would give it top rating as much as we do!!!!
We rented this lovely house because it was dog friendly. Beautiful setting and the pictures represented the home very well
