Truly a great family place, a short walk to the Warren Dunes State Park, and miles of pristine beachfront along Lake Michigan . Warren Dunes allows for fun for everyone, to include the four legged family members (Dog Friendly Beach Section). This newly redone 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is located on a over-sized wooded lot with tons of mature trees. The back yard is fully fenced in, allowing privacy for the group and a place to play for your dog. The property has a very cozy main house that sleeps 6 adults, as well as a bunk house that sleeps 4-6 kids. The custom built cedar bunk house is located 10 ft. away from the main home and provides air condition and heating, as well as a great spot for young adults to hang out while having some privacy. Being close to the Warren Dunes State Park, having a fenced in yard,hot tub,and a main and bunk house makes this property a great rental for all to enjoy.

Very Comfortable Stay!
by Sandy P.
The house and property were very nice; we had lots of sleep options for our group. Loved the large dining table. The fire pit was very nice during our October stay. Also enjoyed the close walk to the Warren Dunes. Thank you for the hospitality!
We had a wonderful experience at the Fairytale Cottage in Sawyer!
by Kim S.
The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed- from beach chairs to a pastry brush! The kids loved having their own place to hang in the bunk house. Our dogs were comfortable and used the doggie door all day long! The hot tub was great too! We will definitely stay here again 🙂
by Mark R.
This was a return visit and it was as good as the first time - and that was very good. One thing nice about this house was how well it was equipped. Just bring your family and your food and you are ready to go. The grand kids still love the bunk house.
Nice quiet place that is just a few minutes walk from the beach
by Andrew D
We made a surprise weekend getaway trip for my fathers 50th birthday. The location was perfect as we were able to visit some breweries and wineries with just a short bus ride. Weather did not cooperate so we did not make it to the beach, but it is only a few minutes away. Overall great quiet place for a family if you have kids the bunk house is every kids dream. At least I think so even being 25.
Incredible home the picture don't do it justice
by Irene B.
The home is incredible. King size master suite, 2 nice other bedrooms that share a bathroom. Nice size kitchen with huge eating area off of the kitchen with a hug bench style table. The bunk house is incredible!! You can easily have 3 families share this place and have the kids in the bunk house with still room for an air mattress. The bunk house shares the deck area so they are literally right next door. The Jacuzzi is in great condition and great! Can't say anything bad about this home. The dunes are a 5 min walk away. Definitely definitely worth the cost!

We have stayed in The Fairytale Cottage twice now and loved it both times. We love how well stocked the house is! It makes for a very relaxing getaway.
Best place to be in Sawyer for fall colors
by Carla V.
We could not have asked for a better place to enjoy the fall colors in Michigan. The proximity to Lake Michigan, the Warren Dunes State Park, and the wineries and breweries could not be beat. We were able to enjoy a week of relaxing in the crisp fall weather and colors, cozy fires in a perfect rock fireplace, a few puzzles and great time with friends. We visited a few wineries in the area (Dablon for great atmosphere and live music, Lemon Creek was our favorite wine) and a few breweries (Greenbush and Cultivate were at the top of the list, but, we really only hit a few of the many). Getaway is a few minutes away and a must for any Cubs fan. Timothy's and Mesa Luna are very nice evening dining options that were open in the off season. There is really too much within easy drive or walk to list. We also found being north of New Buffalo was a plus as things were a little calmer and being close to Bridgman and St. Joseph was perfect. We are hoping that we can get back next year and enjoy time like we did this year. This may be one of our favorite VRBO's we have stayed in.
Kitchen was well stocked and a great option to dining out. The master shower is small, but, not a major issue and we did have an issue with the wifi. The owner was quick to respond to our questions. If you have dogs and/or children this would be a perfect place to stay. We did not use the 'bunkhouse', but, it looked awesome for a group of children or young adults to stay in. There is an outdoor shower that had been winterized so we did not get to use it.
Fall is beautiful in Sawyer, MI!!
by Pamela D. Chicago, IL
The Fairytale Cottage was the perfect Fall get away! The house is in an awesome location and the neighborhood is private and very wooded. The trees were beautiful and it was so nice being able to walk to the beach area and over to the Warren Dunes State Park for a hike. Bike riding in the area is safe and fun. The house is fully stocked with plenty of towels and comfortable beds. We did not use the bunk house but it is a very cool place and would be like camp for kids or teens. The hot tub ROCKS!! Gorgeous gazebo and the tub is outstanding and was ready to go. The fenced in yard was perfect for my two pups who loved running around and looking for squirrels. I saw some wild turkeys walking in the front yard! You don't see those in Chicago! The TV and stereo were really nice so we were able to watch the World Series in surround sound. There is also a nice TV in the master bedroom which we enjoyed every night. Lots of nice decorations in the house and plenty of space for a large family gathering. We would definitely stay at Fairytale Cottage again!
Fabulous Family Weekend
by Maryellen B.
We all enjoyed our long weekend at the Fairytale Cottage. The house had plenty of room for 6 adults, (2 with walkers) and 2 dogs. The dogs had lots of room to run & play in the fenced yard. The house was very welcoming and supplied with everything you could need to make you feel right at home. The sun room was an ideal place to work on a puzzle or play a game. It was nice to have the screened porch and bunk house to use for some alone time. And the hot tub in the gazebo was a great way to relax at the end of a long day.
The location was a short walk to the Warren Dune beach and is in a quiet neighborhood. It's also a convenient drive to stores, wineries, Harbert Swedish Bakery and good restaurants.
Waya Rentals was easy to work with and they were very accommodating.
We had the perfect family vacation and glad it was pet friendly. It was a wonderful house and would definitely come back with our family or girls get away next year.
Have a wonderful week
by Sue - Indianapolis
Our family of four (and our family dog) had a wonderful week at the Fairytale Cottage. The house is a short walk to Warren Dune and we had spent several late evening at the beach to watch sunset. The house is well equipped with everything and I loved the large dining table where my husband and I worked on our laptops every evening. The neighborhood is quiet and we walked to the fruit stand to get fresh fruit. We had a fun and relaxing week and we look forward to returning for vacation next summer.
Large family, awesome weekend!
by Thomas I
We have a family of 12 people plus our family dog. We were very comfortable in this cottage with plenty of space. We have older children with spouses, teenagers, and young children. Everyone had a great experience. The cottage is fully furnished with everything you could need. And best of all; it's only walking distance from Warren Dunes Beach. The neighborhood is quiet, and away from busy roads... safe to let the little ones play. There are small shops and convenience stores within walking distance, for teenagers that want to be on their own. The kitchen and long dining room table, easily accommodated our large family at meal times. There were plenty of showered and toilets on the property. And when the long day was over, the couples were still able to sneak away to the gazebo jacuzzi. We'll be back for sure!
