ELEGANT BEACHFRONT VACATION HOME WITH SWEEPING VIEWS

Cheboygan House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 11 comfortably

Secluded sandy beach located in a quiet area about a half mile from the entrance to the Cheboygan River. 50ft trees surround this fully equipped home with oak floors and soft light carpeting. Don't be surprised to see deer, fox and a myriad variety of water fowl. Watch the 1000ft international freighters sail by from the many rooms, large deck, or fire pit on the beach. This home was built and furnished for comfort and serenity.

The bed set up is 3 queen beds in 3 separate rooms, one bedroom with two twins, one bedroom with one twin, and a den with a fold out double.

Peace - Owner Comment: : My brother calls our property, a little 'peace' of paradise. The silence all around is broken by the songs of birds, hearing swans flying by, cricket calls in the evenings, and the sound of waves lapping the beach. Sunsets over the lake are spectacular and many enjoy it around the large fire pit on the beach. Thank you for considering our home for your vacation. We pray for each of our renters to have a re-creating, wonderful, and joy filled time while staying on our property. Sincerely, Valerie Porter

About Valerie Porter

Married to my wonderful husband for 37 years. We have 5 grown children and 2 darling grandsons and one baby granddaughter.

Valerie Porter purchased this house in 1982

Why Valerie Porter chose Cheboygan

This home is so comfortable, quiet, and on the beach of Lake Huron. It is surrounded by 50 foot trees and secluded.

What makes this house unique

Besides being secluded, it's only a 15 minute drive to the ferries of Mackinac Island, 2 minutes to shopping, movie theatre, and lots of water activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home. The home was even more than we imagined, we were so comfotable. We loved that the early risers could get coffee and sit and talk in the family room off the garage while the others slept. The dining room was perfect for eating together and playing Catch Phrase at night. We were able to sit at the patio table Saturday and watch the many boats and the water fowl. Tasted wine at Nicholas Winery, saw the dam and watched boats go through the lock. The girls even got to do some shopping while the guys checked out the brewery. We had a great time.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5
Our family really enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. The location was great for all our daily outings. The dining room table was large enough for all of us to sit around for our nightly game night. The view of the lake is breath taking. Valerie was wonderful to work with too. I know we made many great family memories staying here.

Great place for Mackinac Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 3 days during Labor day Weekend. Overall, it was wonderful experience and enjoyed a lot as what we planned. Trip to Mackinac Island (just 15 miles fun drive) and shipwreck tours.
With 14 members (including 4 kids), this home was the best choice for our group. Had BBQ party in the evenings and fun games in beach (though it is kind of stone), still we were able to enjoy.

Rating this home for 5 star experience, because we had all what we expected in this home

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at this rental. Lots of room for our family, it was wonderful that there was seating at the dining room table for all of us. Huge deck and yard for the kids and dogs. The views were so relaxing and were able to take long walks on back roads. The beach is huge but rocky and shallow. Cheboygan State Park is just a few miles away and has a beautiful sandy beach for the kids.
The five bedrooms were very comfortable and 3 bathrooms were and added plus with all linens supplied. The kitchen has everything we needed. Loved having only one TV as we spend more family time together. Thank you for making 2012 Family Vacay fantastic.

Owner's Response: *Owner note for 2014 season:
Since we have installed all new carpeting throughout the house, we switched from a 'pets considered' policy to 'no pets'. We sincerely hope that this new policy will not inconvenience our returning guests.

Wonderfulhome

  • 5 of 5
A great house with lovely views of the straits. Plenty of room for all of us and the local family and friends who popped by. The house is well maintained, beds are all comfy. Everyone enjoyed the outdoor space, the fire pit was a great treat. Tim the property manager was very helpful and made us feel at home.
Not to be missed, can't wait to go back.
Thanks Val

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for letting us stay in your house! Property was clean and well maintained. It accommodated 11 people plus 2 dogs comfortably! We could always find space to be alone or be with family. The outside grill was the hub for us, we were often outside grilling and taking in the wonderful views of the water. You can easily see the bridge, and the ferry to Mackinac island was only 15 mins away. It was great to be so close to the water, and be in the city in less than 10 mins to buy supplies.

The water was very private, even the dogs had fun in the water! And we also saw a lot of eagles, and 2 bald eagles!
