Charming and affordable cottage across the road from Warren Dunes (0.4 miles to the entrance), and close to all the activities of Harbor Country. The house sits on a partially wooded 2/3 of an acre, with wooded state land on one side and no nearby neighbors. The side yard is fenced with a deck, and there is a large deck and outdoor seating, grill, and a fire pit in the back yard, with an excellent dark sky viewing opportunity. The house sits close to the road, but all bedrooms are in the back.

The space
Harbor Country offers a huge variety of leisure activities: many public beaches within a short distance; parks and preserves; river kayaking; biking; hiking; wineries; brew pubs; distilleries; a small “fun park” with go-karts, arcade, batting cages, etc. just down the road; small town atmosphere in Sawyer, Bridgman, Three Oaks, and New Buffalo; great restaurants; galleries; antiquing. St. Joe is a classic Lake Michigan beach town and a great place to spend a day strolling around. Or just take the time to sit quietly, read, enjoy the time with the family, relax, and recharge.

Guest access
The house and grounds are yours to enjoy. The laundry room is shared with the caretakers, but they have a separate apartment with all their own facilities and yard on the other side of the house - they have two dogs that do not have access to indoor or outdoor cottage spaces.

My wife Emily and I retired to this area in 2002 and are living in our former summer cottage in Harbert. We love the serenity we find here, but also travel frequently to see our children and grandchildren who are located in Kalamazoo, MI, Denver, CO, and Honolulu, HI. We also go into the city (Chicago) on a regular basis for various cultural experiences. I am a volunteer docent with the Chicago Architecture Foundation, and lead walking tours once or twice a month. Emily is a retired social worker, and I was an urban planner. We just returned from a 5 week camping tour of France and northern Italy that was very special.
