Suggestions for cottages/cabins in Harbor County, Michigan for a weekend stay?

It'll be four of us (two couples) and we're planning to stay somewhere in Harbor County for a couple of nights before heading to another part of Michigan for a wedding. We plan to hit the wineries and do some general poking around and relaxation. Anyone had good experience with cottages/companies in that area? I'm a bit overwhelmed by all of the offerings online, so would appreciate direction! Thank you!

My wife and I have had a wonderful time at the Harbert House Bed and Breakfast during Fourth of July weekend for the past 2 years. The owner was a caterer in Chicago and her culinary expertise shows through her fantastic breakfasts. She also has a cocktail hour where she serves local Michigan wine and light snacks. If you're there during warm summer weather, she'll hook you up with a parking pass for a private beach down the road.

The website is a little off-putting, but you won't regret it if you stay there.

Saugatuck is very nice, and we love the Timber Bluff cottages (in Douglas). But keep in mind that a lot of beach-area cottages switch from "by the night" to "by the week" between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
