The TinPug Southwest Michigan Getaway is a peaceful cedar-shingled cottage in the country. Only 90 minutes from Chicago and 30 minutes from Notre Dame, you feel like you have shifted from noise to nature in the blink of an eye. Swimming lake and walking trails just a short stroll. Antique Shops and Vineyards within a short drive. The gas fireplace and deep cedar hot-tub can warm a cool evening, while the outdoor fire-pit and screen porch surrounded by green offer great areas for entertaining.

The perfect summer getaway! My boyfriend and our two dogs spent Labor Day weekend here and it was a delight! The doggy door was a fabulous feature that my pups enjoyed very much. My boyfriend and I enjoyed the hot tub and lounging by the fire! 10/10!

A quiet, clean and tastefully appointed home- a stone’s throw from a lake. With amenities that include a hot tub, record albums (and CDs) and a library- even staying in during Michigan’s all-too-common summer storms was perfect for our psyches and our souls!
