Welcome to 2nd Base on Lake Michigan, the grandest of the five Great Lakes. Nestled in Sawyer, MI in the private community of Shorewood Hills, this spacious and unique property consists of a main house and a separate guest house overlooking the lake. You will fall in love with the private beach, the sound of crashing waves, the spectacular sunsets, the stunning views of Lake Michigan, and 2nd Base of course! All of this provides a great venue for a relaxing holiday that will bring you back to nature. Best yet, it is only one-and-a-half hours from Chicago.

The three-story main house has six bedrooms and five bathrooms accompanied by multiple living areas overlooking Lake Michigan. The entire home is bathed in natural light, and guests will enjoy the expansive lake views and light coming in through the floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights throughout the house. The open-concept main floor has a large kitchen featuring an island with an electric cooktop, two sinks, a dishwasher, a garbage compactor, and a buffet area. There is a lovely dining area attached to the spacious kitchen with a large custom-made maple round table that seats 12-14 guests. A comfortable living area with a sectional sofa, a mounted flatscreen TV, and a maple table for four completes the living area. From this space, guests have access to a terrace complete with comfortable patio furniture and a gas grill. It's an ideal location for barbecuing while savoring the stunning Lake Michigan sunsets. You'll find two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds, and a full bath with a shower/tub combo on this level as well.

On the second level, guests can enjoy another spacious living area with floor-to-ceiling windows offering beautiful lake views and lots of comfortable seating around the flatscreen TV. Another large terrace invites you to enjoy the colorful sunsets, the majestic rising moon, and often the lights of Chicago across the lake. Two bedrooms are housed on this level, both bedrooms furnished with queen beds and en-suite bathrooms with shower/tubs. The lower level has a nice living area with floor-to-ceiling windows. A large private master suite offers a sitting area, a spacious bedroom with a king-size bed, built-in maple closets, and an en-suite bathroom with double sinks and a shower/tub. A second bedroom with a queen bed, a bathroom with a shower, and the laundry room complete this level. The guest house is perfect for children or adults who are still young at heart. This fun red, white, and blue haven has a kitchen and a small eating area. There are two bedrooms with two sets of bunk beds each, a bathroom with a shower, a TV, and a second washer and dryer.

A large terrace, complete with gas grill, patio furniture, a hot tub, a half bath, and two outdoor showers, separate the Main House from the Guest House. If relaxing on the beach and splashing in the waves is what you enjoy, a 100-foot boardwalk through the dune grass leads you to our association beach. If you need a respite from the beach, there are many interesting activities in Harbor Country to discover: kayaking, surfing, blueberry picking, Sawyer’s beautiful art and sculpture museum, breweries, wineries, farmers’ markets, an ice cream parlor, antiquing, shopping, and many great restaurants. Treat yourself and experience “the Riviera of the Midwest”!

* Please note: the hot tub is open from Memoral Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. If you are booking the home between the months of September and May, please verify with the agent that the hot tub will be accessible.

Fantastic location for a beach vacation with the family. Stream flowing into the lake made for a private and extensive sandy beach for every non-motorized activity you want to enjoy. Room for beach volleyball, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming, etc and the Warren Dunes a short walk up the beach. The house was large and well equipped with room for 8 children and 10 adults. There are significant repairs to decking, screens and windows yet to be done that suggest the need for a little more TLC. The lower level bunkhouse has an septic odor despite trying recommended efforts to ameliorate. Some of the children could not tolerate. If you don’t need the bunkhouse and don’t mind the deferred maintenance, you will be very happy (as we were) with this rental.

Great house. Great stay. We are planning a return trip to the area on a yearly basis.

This was the 9th time we have rented a home on the beach in Southwest Michigan for our annual Labor Day family reunion. We have 6 married children and grandchildren ranging from infant to teenager. All in our group said this was their favorite property we`ve stayed at. Plenty of room for all to spread out. Hot tub was a big hit. Beach area was fantastic. Inlet cove was especially fun for the toddlers in our group.

Office staff in New Buffalo was amazing! Even brought extra toilet paper the next day and helped our lost driver find the property. We will definitely stay again!
