Sawyer is home to Greenbush Brewery, and Soe, a restaurant which features home grown fare, a grocery store, a clothing store in a former fire station and Sawyer Garden Shop, featuring, fresh produce, a great wine selection and gourmet foods.
It warms my heart when guests wash and put away their dishes.
We stayed at Floyd's cottage and had family at Floyd's cabin as well. It was the perfect arrangement for an extended family group. The setting was beautiful and the cottage was a gem. It was very close to the beach and we loved the art and all the little details that made it unique. My favorite feature was the huge screened in porch where we could watch the hummingbirds and butterflies in the garden. The kitchen isn't fancy, no dishwasher, but it was fine for our needs and was very nice to have a few essentials like olive oil, spices etc. available. Thanks so much Linda and Floyd, we hope to return soon!
Our host was there to welcome us with a smile, even though we were about a half hour late. We really like privacy and so we relied on the maps and brochures they left on the kitchen counter and explored by whim. The cottage: for those who believe in diy and repurposed everything, this cottage is an inspiration. For readers, a chair, sofa, light and pillows for everyone. For scrabble or card games or candlelit dinners, a long screened porch with a long, lovely table. And dogs are welcome! Near swimming and dune climbing at Warren Dunes and don't miss the county park walk into the marsh on your way to great dining in New Buffalo. Also, don't miss the Swedish bakery where everybody goes for morning coffee and pastries.
My stay at Floyd's Cottage was absolutely perfect! Linda and Floyd are welcoming and wonderful and I loved spending a little bit of time with them. The cottage itself is unique, quite large and decorated beautifully. I especially enjoyed the porch and the little deck outside. The beach is close by and there are several options for food in the nearby towns. I will definitely be back and highly recommend Floyd's Cottage!
We fell in love with the cabin and with Lakeside. Floyd and Linda were so welcoming and made our stay one to remember. The cabin is perfect for a family vacation, close to the beach and many great restaurants. The kitchen is fully equipped and bathroom is as well. We used every aspect of the cottage, the screened in porch, bonfire pit, and wood burning stove. We will definitely be back next year but, we will be staying even longer-we did not want to leave!
We enjoyed our stay and were happy to find a place that welcomes dogs! Our favorite place to spend time was on the spacious screened in porch. The cabin is close to great restaurants, galleries/shops, and beaches. Such a peaceful and beautiful area.
Simply awesome! Beautiful and singular space! If you are looking for a completely unique getaway, this is it! We will be back for sure, love this spot!
We had a great experience at Floyd's Cottage. The communication with Floyd and Linda was easy. They were very accomodating. The cottage is beautiful, much bigger than expected. The furniture, all the little details, the woods surrounding the house.... We will definetely go back.
