Mackinaw City House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 1 half bath. Sleeps 8 adults comfortably. MAXIMUM 10

More than just a place to sleep! Relax and enjoy incredible Lake Michigan sunsets from the deck of this spacious, beautifully decorated beach house. Open floor plan includes a great room with eat-in kitchen, breakfast nook and snack table, large sitting area with panoramic views throughout. There is a separate TV room with flat panel TV & satellite. The four large bedrooms (three upstairs, one downstairs) include a Master suite with master bath and walk-in shower, a beautiful romantic lakeside bedroom with balcony, a rustic bedroom complete with twig furnishings, and a cozy downstairs bedroom with its own bath.

Enjoy the lake from the balcony or deck, or step out to the white sand beach for a stroll, swimming, sunning, beach combing or kayaking.

Take in wonderful local golf courses or drive just three miles to Mackinaw City where you can cross the Mackinac Bridge to the town of St. Ignace, take the ferry to Mackinac Island, enjoy summer concerts, visit the shops, restaurants or historic sites, or play putt-putt.

Home Details: Remodeled, beautiful four-bedroom home. The house is fully furnished and tastefully decorated. It provides many areas to gather as well as quiet corners to escape. The main living area and eat-in kitchen are open with tiled floors, seating for lounging and eating, and offer sweeping views of Lake Michigan. The TV room is carpeted with a sofa, chairs and coffee table/ottoman, papason chair, and straight chairs, books and games. The TV is a wall-mounted flat panel with basic satellite, DVD player and VCR.

All bedrooms are carpeted and beautifully furnished. The spacious master suite offers views overlooking the beach and lake, and opens to the upstairs deck which is perfect for enjoying the view and a good book. The master bath is tiled with large walk-in shower, double vanity and separate commode area. Two upstairs guest rooms share a large guest bath with dual vanity. One opens to the upstairs deck. The downstairs bedroom offers a cozy retreat down its own hall with it's own bath.

Location, Location, Location: This two-story house is located on a beautiful sandy strip of Lake Michigan shoreline, in a private community at the edge of Wilderness State Park. The beach is easily accessible with a short boardwalk and path leading to the smooth shore area. Here you can relax in the beach chairs, walk the shoreline, swim, play or kayak (two single, one double available). Build a fire in the copper fire pit at night for s'mores and you're ready to stargaze.

Just three miles south of Mackinaw City, The Mackinac Bridge, and Ferry Lines to Mackinac Island. You can cross the nearly five-mile suspension bridge to Michigan's Upper Peninsula and the town of St. Ignace. Plan a day trip, and drive up to Whitefish Point and the Shipwreck Museum where you can learn about the wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald, stopping at Tahquamenon Falls on your way.

Beautiful Golf Courses surround the area. Some of our favorites are Hidden River Golf and Casting Club, Little Traverse Bay, and the courses of Boyne Highlands.

Home Away from Home: More than just a place to sleep. We have furnished this as if it were our permanent home, with beautiful, solid furnishings and simple decor.

Though there are many sights to see in the area, you may never want to leave. This house is furnished and supplied so that you have all you need to relax and enjoy your vacation from the time you arrive. In addition to the amenities mentioned, you'll find all the comforts of home. Morning coffee takes on a whole new meaning when you're watching the lake come to life. Evening meals taste better with the sun setting on the lake as you sit around the large picnic table.

There is a double kayak and two single kayaks with paddles and life jackets for your use. You'll find toys, coolers and tote bags in the 'summer closet.' The deck is large and seats 8-10 people in addition to the large picnic table in the lower deck grilling area.

About Tam Pursley

We live in Georgia, but have vacationed in Michigan for over forty years. We love the beautiful, clear summer days and the crisp, cool nights. For us there is no place that compares to Northern Michigan!

Tam Pursley purchased this house in 2007

Why Tam Pursley chose Mackinaw City

After vacationing in Northern Michigan for many years, we began searching for a home to buy. We looked in many areas and communities, for several summers, and didn't really even consider Mackinaw City,

... until we looked at this home, and it's location. It fit our needs wonderfully with the soft, sandy shore, clear shallow water, friendly neighbors, and the convenience to town with the feeling of being far removed.

The home we purchased was a small ranch. We remodeled by opening up and extending where we could, and adding a second floor with spacious bedrooms and an airy deck. We were able to keep a portion of the original cabin, by utilizing the knotty pine living room as the separate den / tv room.

The location and the open-plan home are perfect for our family vacations, golf trips, and girls outings.

What makes this house unique

We are located in a small bay, just around the point from the Mackinaw Bridge. The sheltered bay and shallow water make our beaches sandy, and help the water warm just a little more than the deeper, colder waters of Lake Michigan. The lake and our shoreline are different every day. We love the glass-like, still water often seen in the early morning, and we love the crashing waves and surf that a blustery day can bring. Being inside as a storm rolls in is a treat as well. But nothing beats the sunsets from our deck as a long day comes to an end.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived, I was first struck by the open space in the kitchen and dining room, and the beautiful view of the lake from this area. My 1-year old really picked up her walking skills in this area. Mackinaw Island was only open for one more day, so after enjoying the island, we spent most of our time in the home enjoying some family time. We would love to come back in the summer when we can actually enjoy the water as well!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous time at the beach house! The home is immaculate, spacious, and beautiful. We stayed for a week with our four kids, ranging in age from 16 to 2, and there was something to do for everyone. The owners have thought of all the extras to make the stay special. We would recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway that provides all the comforts of home.

Northern Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This is beautiful home in a great location. Western sunset views. It's very peaceful but close to many sights and easy access off I-75. Hiking/biking trails all around and pristine sandy beach for swimming and kayaking. Perfect for 4 adult couples, plus a couple bunk beds if needed. It was very hard to drag ourselves away, I'll miss the sound of lapping waves at night.

Lake Michigan Getaway House

  • 5 of 5
WOW!! This home is awesome! Everything you could possibly want or need for an incredible Lake Michigan beachfront vacation. From dishes, cooking utensils, linens, a washer and dryer, all the amenities of home only with a spectacular view of Lake Michigan. The beds are fantastic – what a wonderful nights sleep!! The view from the deck and the balcony are breathtaking. Either drinking your coffee on the balcony in the morning or relaxing in the adirondack chairs on the deck after a long walk on the beach. The entire home is decorated beautifully with stylish décor and colors. The home and the grounds are clean and well maintained. Mackinaw City is just a few minutes away and offered several types of restaurants (pizza, fudge, seafood, fudge, fine dining, fudge), shops and a movie theatre. The ferry ride from Mackinaw City to Mackinac Island is a must. This island is like going back in time. This community and home were perfect for our getaway. What an experience!!

Amazing Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This rental home is exactly what our family needed. The water was amazingly clear and clean and the sunsets were breathtaking! I couldn't believe how absolutely refreshing this northern Michigan lake and the house is steps away from the lake! This house is so perfect for this area...the photos just don't do it justice. The kitchen is perect for anyone who enjoys cooking (which we found we wanted to do rather than go out for dinner) Sitting on the deck with a glass of wine while grilling dinner was something we'll look forward to doing again very soon!
