Port Sanilac House Rental Photos and Description
5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 18, lake views, 3 levels with game room!
This spacious home on 7 acres with sweeping views of Lake Huron, situated between the quaint villages of Port Sanilac and Harbor Beach. It is the perfect destination for a group or multi-family getaway or reunion on Lake Huron! 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 18, huge game room, and beautiful lake views!
Our 3-story home is located in Forestville, Michigan -- 18 miles north of Port Sanilac and 12 miles south of Harbor Beach. The home is situated at the end of a long private driveway atop a bluff with sweeping views of Lake Huron. The park-like setting includes a sand beach, several lawns and picnic areas, a game room with billiards and card tables, basketball hoop, campfire pits, grills for BBQs, and enough lawn games (and property!) to keep you busy.
The kitchen is spacious and built to accommodate a crowd, with double ovens, an extra sink, plates and cutlery for many, and appliances and cooking utensils. There are 5 bedrooms total (4 upstairs and 1 on the main level), and a full bath on each level of the home. There are 2 queen beds, 6 full size beds, two bunk beds, a pack n' play, and a pullout sofa. Clean bed linens are provided. Ceiling fans throughout the home keep the home airy and cool on warm days. Satellite TV and wireless internet are available during the summer months for those who want to stay 'plugged in'.
The beach front provides access to a shallow bay for wading, though depending on the water level of Lake Huron, access to the water may be limited (bring your water shoes to navigate the typical Lake Huron rocky or mucky bottom). For swimming purposes, the nearby Forestville beach (1 mile away) and Harbor Beach (12 miles north) are great destinations.
When you are fully relaxed and ready to explore, outings to Port Sanilac, Harbor Beach and Lexington are always fun to take advantage of the sandy beaches, playgrounds, museums, quaint shopping, ice cream and restaurants. Harbor Beach boasts a beautiful harbor, pier and marina where you can rent boats.
This area is great for golf (there is a driving range across the street from the home), hunting, fishing, hiking, sailing, water sports, and in the winter, snowmobiling on the extensive trail system.
The house rents from Sunday (check in at 4pm) to Sunday (check out at 10am) unless special arrangements are made with the owners. Weekly rental price varies from $1700-$1800 during the off-season (end-September through mid-May), and $2000 during the summer months. The week of July 4th the house rents for $2500. If you are interested in renting the house for a weekend or for a longer period of time, please be in touch and we will see if we can accommodate. Weekend (2-night) rentals start at $600 in the off-season and (by special arrangement) $900 during the summer months. There is a $200 cleaning fee for all rentals. Pets will be considered ($35 pet fee). There is an additional $25 fee/person/night for groups over 14 people. Please inquire for consideration and prices for groups larger than 20 and special events.

Why Betsy & Jim chose Port Sanilac
We built this home as a family retreat 'getaway” for our large family (9 sibs!) from the Detroit metro area.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I don’t have too much feedback because we thought everything was just perfect. I couldn’t believe that such a big group of such diverse adults could all be happy in one house….but we were. We loved it, I asked the group and no one could come up with anything that would have made our stay better, it was lovely.
Thank you and I hope to come again.
