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.

Walk right into Warren Dunes State Park and enjoy miles of beaches and hiking trails.
This was a great getaway place, a home away from home for our party of 8. Lovely cottage feeling, close to the dunes that our older teenage kids loved to climb and play at the beach during day time. Evenings we just chilled and relaxed in their screened porch over dinner and wine. The kids had the option of making smores over the cute firepit in the backyard. Very well organized and equipped home and kitchen too!
Our family had a great time staying at Dunestar! The house was immaculate, kitchen had everything we needed, plenty of room to spread out, grandsons loved the bunk beds and toys. Enjoyed drinking coffee every morning on screened porch..a great place to stay, we will be coming back.
Our family loved the Dunestar! It was clean & comfortable, decorated just darling and nothing was forgotten - beach toys, games, blow up beds - everything you needed was there! We will definitely come back!!!
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!
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!
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!
