About Us


My husband and I retired in 2012 from successful, fulfilling corporate careers. We now manage several vacation rental properties in Michigan. It has become our retirement career! Our love of the water, boating, and summer has kept us close to the beautiful lakes of northern Michigan.

We love having others enjoy our properties while relaxing and getting away from their daily routines. Our properties include lakeside cottages in the upper peninsula, a downtown Harbor Springs condo and a northern Michigan Inn in the upper peninsula.

We believe you are always one decision away from a different life, choose that life and live it to the fullest.

Traveling to Michigan’s upper peninsula a stop in the unique waterfront town of Curtis is a must see. A chain of 3 lakes is the center of business and pleasure in this area, South Manistique Lake, Big Manistique Lake, and Round Lake. All offering fishing, kayaking, boating, vacation cottages, lakeside inns and a variety of restaurant dining choices. This little town is big on outdoor adventure whether it be winter of summer. It also offers an outstanding art center, Erickson Center for the Arts, a focal point of many travelers to this area.

Tucked in the center of town is the SA-WA-QUATO INN, a place to relax and enjoy cozy lakeview lodging. Rustic textures, bold décor choices, refreshing outdoor spaces, and a restful atmosphere are what your find when visiting the inn.

SAWAQUATO INN offers cozy, lakeview lodging
for the northern Michigan traveler looking to unwind and recharge from life’s busy schedules.
