Angie was very accommodating to us and our dogs! The sunrise cottage is perfect for a long weekend of resting and relaxing. The property is great. The lake is nice, row boats are cool, fire pit is adorable and private screened in porch is a treat! We enjoyed the proximity to Three oaks for antique shopping and New Buffalo for water front dining. (proximity to 4 Winds casino is nice as well). We cant wait to come back in the fall to see the leaves change color!

The cabin was clean but VERY outdated. The pictures on the website are many years old. The property has not been maintained. The long walk around the lake is actually a bug infested walk around an overgrown pond. We were there for no less than 20 minutes when we got to watch the owners family take a dip into the pond. At least they were wearing swimsuits when they got in. My wife and I had the privilege of watching a grown man totally disrobe as he slowly dried himself and redressed. Wife and I had to spend almost all of our time inside.

My son and I have been visiting Sans Souci since he has been a baby. Summer 2014 will be our 13th year! What started out renting one cottage is now two cottages for at least a week during the summer months. We have family & friends visit, rotating during the week + vacation. The "cottage" is a haven where we take daily am/pm walks around the lake, enjoy sharing the days adventures with nightly lakeside campfires, play volleyball or baseball in the open fields, board games in the gazebo, watch the turtles, birds, deer and take in all that nature has to offer. The morning mist rising from the lake still captivates me. The "cottage" is true family time together. It amazes me, especially with a teenager, that he and his friends like to hang out at the beach during the day; swimming, rafting, row boating, playing in the water or a game of horse shoes and never turn on an electronic device (yeah!). We often take a day to the New Buffalo beach, State Line Stables for horseback riding and blueberry picking. As my son gets older, he may not want to visit any longer but the family tradition of the "cottage" will be part of his childhood forever. We have made great, lasting, beautiful and fun family memories. I guess anyone could make a negative comment, nothing is perfect, but hearing my son, his friends and my mom ask "when are we going to the cottage this year" is music to my ears. Thanks Angie for making your home our home, having our dogs enjoy the cottage adventure too and making this our family tradition throughout the years! .

My wife and I have returned to Sans Souci about 6 times over the years. It is a terrific place for a relaxing romantic getaway. The hot tub and fireplace and spacious room are terrific. We enjoy watching hundreds of birds feeding outside our window. The property is huge with a lake, woods and vineyard. It is very private, yet close to the Four Winds Casino. Don't miss dinner at Heston's about 2 miles away. Angie and her staff are very considerate and thoughtful. We highly recommend Sans Souci.

A bit overpriced but still okay value for money. It's far away from New Buffalo and not that much to do in the close surroundings. The room was clean, neat and comfortable.

Our group of four couples get away every summer for a long weekend (this year July 2013). We rented Michigan House and the Green Heron Suite at Sans Souci. The suite is next door to the house which gave us great access all weekend. The house is outfit with all the necessities required for our weekend including a well stocked kitchen and new gas grill for our Saturday night dinner in. The winter garden room of the house was the perfect spot for our dinner. Sans Souci's lake was warm and the water was clear. Plus, the proximity to I-94 and New Buffalo / Exit 1 is very convenient. Angie checked on us a few times over the weekend to make sure all was OK. Good times!

Just wanting to share that my husband and I were making a repeat visit to Sans Souci and had made a reservation and even extended it an extra day. Unfortunately we had a death in the family and were unable to even take the vacation. What was so compassionate and appreciated was that the owners refunded 100% of our payment. We have been extremely touched by their generosity and understanding. So know these are "good folks" and care about their customers.

Very rustic and quiet. Winery and casino near by. The owner is very hospitable. I would stay there again

We stayed in one of the 'cabins' actually a duplex. It was perfectly situated near the lake and far enough from the main lodgings that you felt you had the place to yourself. Beautiful paths, porches and views. Perfect for an escape from Urban to Rural. Don't miss a trip to Three Oaks and the wine country.
