About Wayne or Marilyn Baker

When my wife and I first purchased this property, we thought a bit of decorating and sprucing up and voila, a great place for us to get away to. No Such luck. After taking possession and doing more substantive investigation, we soon discovered that the small dip in the floor was crumbling supports. Thus after significant soul searching, we embarked on a 3 year project to totally remove all bad and rotting components, and replace with new and modern. With the help of a couple of local guys, one of whom is our neighbour, and every weekend and holiday available to us over the past three years, we have created a haven we would like to share.

Wayne or Marilyn Baker purchased this house in 2010

Why Wayne or Marilyn Baker chose Lexington

We fell in love with the area. We love the proximity to the Lake. It is an excellent location for young families, the water is far enough away that youngsters won't be tempted to explore unattended, yet close enough that one can make multiple trips to the beach and not be bothered by it.

What makes this house unique

We have poured our heart and souls into this home over the past three years. We love the unique character of the home, from the old shade trees in the front yard to the view of the lake. From the cathedral ceiling in the living room, to the roomy openness of the living area. Come stay and see what we mean.

Beautiful! The perfect escape

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect getaway, we cannot wait to go again. The only complaint is we didn't stay long enough! The house was open and updated and stocked with anything you need. The neighborhood really gave the up north feel lots if nature and beautiful houses. And the best part was the beach was right there. The owners was so easy and pleasant to deal with. Can't say it enough we loved our getaway and cannot wait to go back!!

Lex-Haven was GREAT for what we needed!

  • 4 of 5
After an eight-year hiatus, our family was gathering for Christmas. Wayne and Marilyn offered their lovely home, so that my family could spend quality time with each other in a warm and homey setting. The communication was excellent in getting everything set up, and we even had a chance to meet them while staying there.

The house is equipped with everything that you would need for a week's stay. As stated in the description, there is a television, DVD and CD player available. There was no cable or internet, but I knew that going into it. They had enough of a DVD and game selection to keep us busy .

If you are looking to get away from the hub bub of life and want peace and quiet, this place is perfect for that :). I will definitely come back if i need to be in the area again! Thanks, Wayne and Marilyn!

Deceptive Property Description

  • 1 of 5
According to this couples website they offer: Entertainment: (look for yourself . . .)

Books
Games
Toys

Video Library
DVD Player
Television ...

I went for a short 2 day stay to relieve the stress of my older brothers illness and enjoy a cookout and some football and baseball games on TV (i.e. Lions and NFL football, Baseball Playoffs) only to find there is no cable tv, satellite tv, rabbit ears or any access to "Television". There also in no internet access, period. Very misleading and annoying.

We felt totally misled by this couple and the Homeaway website, purposefully or not. No where on the website does it say to 'scroll over select items for item detail'. Listed very clearly was 'Television'. It was not television (aka satellite or cable television). They just used that terminology for a ten year old TV and DVD player. He said to just watch the 15 garage sale DVD's left for us and that is all he offered. WOW. When I told them that we were leaving the next day and would like a one night refund he was agitated and angry and said he had never had a complaint. Yeah, right. Everyone goes 2-3 days without 'television' and internet access on vacation.

He also said 'What was I wanting, a hotel room? YES. A toilet, shower, television and bed. WOW, Apparently too much to ask for, but they didn't have all 4 anyway. Wish they would have stated that. If we had wanted a rustic experience with no TV or internet we would have gone tent camping.

Please remember, there is NO 'Television'. WOW. And the beach does not allow dogs and has multiple wave barricades every 100'. Also, You can barely make out Lake Huron from the front door. Glad to be home even if it is a day earlier and a ruined holiday thanks to people and websites who fudge the 'facts'. It is also a lie not to be forthright and share the truth. Especially with something as important as TV and information in 2013.

I am lodging a formal complaint with the website and am requesting a full refund. I will obtain satisfaction for these misleading and deceptive practices.

Owner's Response: We have been told in the past that our advertising is misleading, in that we are under selling the property, and that our pictures do not do the property justice.

We have tried to create a haven, where one can come and get away from it all, including cable and satellite television.

We are only steps away from a beautiful beach and a view that is absolutely gorgeous. I won't argue that there are metal barriers going out into the water every 100 feet or so, that makes it a little more difficult to walk along the beach. (I understand they were installed for erosion control making them the lesser of 2 evils) However our lake shore drive is one of the few shoreline roadways that have a completely unobstructed view of the lake for very close to 1 mile with manicured park like setting along the entire roadway.(makes for lovely walks)

We are a short drive from quaint village shopping, farmers markets, lakeside parks, nice restaurants, and drop dead gorgeous fall colors.

It is unfortunate that the individual did not ask if we had satellite or cable television before he chose to rent our Lex-Haven, it would have saved both of us a lot of grief.

Really great - much more than expected

  • 5 of 5
If someone from Germany rents a house in the U.S. that is owned by Canadians this seems to be a risky venture. But thanks to Waynes excellent communication everything runs perfect.
The house is really beautiful and equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed the week we spent in this house very much.
Many thanks to Wayne and Marilyn !

Car: necessary

Friday night music in the harbour in Lexington, Saturday night music in the park in nearby Port Sanilac. Bowling alley is a short walk away. Ample opportunities for Garage Sale hunting or Antiquing, including the 100 mile garage sale in mid August. Ample opportunity to spend time on the beach less than a 5 minute walk away. One can always spend a nice evening at the Barn Theatre in nearby Port Sanilac, or enjoy the experience of a Drive-In Movie about 25 minutes away by Sandusky. Not to mention the many and varied dining opportunities in and around the area.
