You found it--the perfect location near everything Harbor County has to offer in the beautiful, wooded and private Shorewood Hills beach community. This charming 1940s dune cottage near Sawyer, MI is the best of both worlds, situated next to Warren Dunes State Park but with all the amenities of a private beach association. The house has been recently updated inside and out by new owners for easy living. Two amazing beach choices are out your door: only a quick 6 min. walk to the Shorewood Hills Association beach OR follow the wooded path into Warren Dunes for expansive beaches, hiking trails and more--both are out your door. This is an ideal SW Michigan vacation spot for families, getaways with friends, reunions and more. Sleeps 8+ with 3BRs, 2 full baths on 1st floor + extra pullout couch...You found it--the perfect location near everything Harbor County has to offer in the beautiful, wooded and private Shorewood Hills beach community.
