New choice for oir next stay

  • 5 of 5

Was a great stay in Sawyer. Overall a very centralized location for local needs/activities. My family and I enjoyed the home tremendously. The screened in porch was our go to spot in the afternoon/evenings. We were still able to enjoy the outdoors even when it rained. We will be booking again for next summer.

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 (include 2 little toddlers) had a wonderful time in Sawyer! This place was like a cute little cottage and the location was excellent. When we walked in, the house was pretty neat and clean... mostly. I saw some leaves and bugs on the floor so I vacuumed the place before we really "settled" in. I'm not like a neat freak, but my toddler boys are always on the floor touching and picking up things so I just had to vacuum and make sure. The beds were not made so we made the beds ourselves. This house had everything provided... From cooking utensils, bug spray, beach towels, dish detergent and detergent for the washing machine.. you really don't need to bring anything except your own clothes and toiletries. The only thing I wish we knew was that this house doesn't have a bath tub... it only has a shower. Because we have little ones and we really needed bathtub... I would've brought our own baby tub if I knew. Other than that, we really enjoyed staying here and specially enjoyed eating dinner at the screened in porch every night. Sawyer is such a pretty little town... and the Cherry Beach was absolutely beautiful. We will definitely come back again!

Owner's Response: I am happy to hear you had a nice vacation but I am concerned the cottage was not swept thoroughly before your arrival. I have not had any cleaning problems in the past so I am looking into how this might have happened. Thank you for your feedback and I hope you will consider staying again in the future!

Superior Cottage for MI Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our Memorial Weekend getaway. The place was very clean and comfortable. Loved the screen in porch. The location is perfect for wine tasting, going to the different beaches in the area and walking to the Warren Dunes. I would definitely consider staying here again and would recommend it to my friends. Very lovely house. Thanks Russ for sharing your place.

This is a great house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several homes in Sawyer over the years, and this place is in a league of its own. This is a real HOUSE, not a little musty cottage. We were especially grateful for the ceiling fans in every room and the central air conditioning, as it we had very high and humid temps during our stay. I would imagine the central heating could be just as well appreciated on a cooler visit. The Owner was very courteous and a great and prompt communicator. He returned our security deposit the very next day after we check out. The kitchen has anything you might want, the 2nd bedroom has a whole cabinet full of games, the bed was more comfortable than my own at home -- but the best part is the airy screened-in deck (with ceiling fan!) and very bright. There is a shed full of great beach accessories -- chairs, shade devices, and even sand toys and bubbles. It was a very charming house and we'd love to have the chance to stay there again. My husband and 2 daughters (ages 3 & 8) had a great stay.
