Lovely Home for Relaxing by Lake Huron

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 31, 2007
  • Stayed: Nov 2007
We have rented this lovely beach front home in every season of the year. The house has three bedrooms which are spacious and great open space between the living/dining/kitchen areas. The property is well maintained and provides a cozy place to relax while watching the freighters go by. The proximity of the stores, restaurants, museum, harbor, and beach is a major plus. Summer time is definitely beach time with blueberry picking thrown in. In the spring we have enjoyed festivals and sea glass hunting. Fall color is gorgeous along the lakeshore and there are apples aplenty. In the winter, the cottage is a great place to curl up with a great book or movie and check out the ice built up along the shoreline. This is truly a four season rental.

Great place to get away from it all. Very clean and relaxing with a wonderful view of Lake Huron. Willis' Market is very close and has everything you need. Uri's Waterfront Dining and Mary's Diner were 2 of our favorite places to eat. We also liked the First Mate Ice Cream Parlor located at the Port Sanilac Marina for dessert! All these places were within walking distance of the cottage. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for giving Port Sanilac and our house such a good review! We are working on making this house even more enjoyable and look forward to having our guests come back again!

Vacation Disaster!

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 24, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
The listing description of this cottage is accurate regarding the location and layout...but it ends there. Property not clean or well maintained. Overgrown greenery on sidewalk at front door, broken/heaved cement on sidewalk at side of house, railing running across back of property not secure/safe (6 ft drop to beach below into weeds, rock), no railing for steep steps leading down to beach. This is not a safe vacation property for the elderly or those with children. Listed as having A/C in one bedroom...upon arrival..NO A/C. 1 rotating pedestal fan...1 banged up box fan...1 small old rotating fan that we dragged out of the garage...dusty and dirty. Temperatures over 100 degrees that week. Windows did not open (in living room and 1 bedroom). No window coverings at all in 1 bedroom...other bedroom had no covering on window that faces the street. I would NEVER recommend this property to a friend or relative. It has potential to be a great listing...but not as it is now.
Owner's Response: I did not receive a call from this guest during their stay so was quite surprised to hear that she had had a bad experience through an email that it did not have this detail in it. Now, I know what she why she was so concerned. Since that time, I have talked with her on the phone to let her know that we are addressing each issue. Rest assured, that since their stay, and during it, many issues had been brought forth and were being addressed. The clean she refers to is most likely the outside of the house. We had already planned the cleaning, outside Spring cleaning days were unavoidably delayed, and it has since been done, as has the shrubbery. The house has been washed, the spider-webs from the Spring removed, an on-going issue, when you live by the lake, and a prevention applied. The window treatments had been ordered but had not arrived. They are now being customized for those windows. The AC had died, yes. We used the fans that were available, but the one she refers to that came from the garage was not one that we would have dragged out without cleaning it first. Again, if I had known there was a problem like that, I could have easily addressed it with clean fans set in the windows to draw the cool outside air, in. It is important to note that our handyman had asked if he could arrange to have the AC installed during their stay, while they might be out-and-about, but this guest refused. It was installed the day they left, in time for the next guests. The living room windows stick, but we can open them, and are scheduled for future replacement. Our handyman has assisted when asked. One in the bedroom was broken. Maybe thats the one she was referring to, it has been repaired, as well. The railing and concrete will most likely be long-term projects that will be repaired correctly. We had some wind damage that took out a flag pole, possibly weakening the rail as well. The pole has been removed. As you can see, if I could have had a conversation with them during their stay, many of these comments would have been addressed during their stay and would be non-issues. It is our intent to provide good memories, not to lead our guests to disappointment.

Our first trip with the dogs :)

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 13, 2010
  • Stayed: Jul 2010
Thank you thank you!! We had a wonderful experience renting this house!

From my first contact with Nancy, we knew we made the right choice in this house. The beach is beautiful and the dogs had a great time running and romping in the water. The beach and water is sandy (not at all rocky), but you still might want to bring water shoes if you have sensitive feet. The pictures do not do it justice at all...watching the sun rise on the water is breathtaking!

The house itself is in great shape. The kitchen is much larger than the pictures make it seem, so it was easy for two people to cook together without issue. Everything you'll need is there, down to the cookie sheets if you get a hankering for some midnight chocolate chip cookies. There is a grocery store about a mile away, in case there's anything you've forgotten.

We did not venture out as much as we thought, but we know there are many great local restaurants around the corner and within 15 minutes. Lexington is a short drive south and is home to some nice shops and restaurants their downtown area. If you're looking for activity on the water, there are a ton of listings in the phone book, or simply ask one of the neighbors--they are lovely people!

If you are a wine lover, there is a small vineyard about 10 minutes away that is a must-see! The owners, Connie & Steve, made us feel right at home. When we left we like we had known them for years. We can't wait to visit again and see this great place grow. (Blue Water Winery & Vineyard)

As dog owners, finding the right rental house can be tough. This was a great choice for us!

If there is any negatives I can give it's these... there is not AC in the whole house, but that's pretty common we learned, since the lake breeze is pretty great. The master bedroom has AC, so if you like a cool night's sleep it's perfect.
Also, the yard is not entirely fenced, but if you have a long line you'll have no issue.

We'll definitely be back. :)

Just got back home today from a wonderful week at this Port Sanilac home. Very clean inside, beautiful backyard outside. Loved listening to the waves 24/7. Very peaceful also! We had a family of four and my sister and elderly mother came for a day also. Plenty of room for everyone with easy access. Would love to stay here again.
