HERON POINTE...WHERE NATURE AND LUXURY COMBINE FOR AN UNFORGETABLE EXPERIENCE

White Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 5

Relax and unwind in this charming totally renovated 40's style cottage on 7 secluded wooded acres. Stroll the grounds, try a cast or two from the bridge overlooking our peaceful private stocked pond...or take a serene walk through the woods to 3 flowing waterfalls. You might even catch a glimpse of our steathy blue heron.

Luxuriously comfortable furnishings, a pot bellied stove, and a nicely appointed kitchen create a welcome retreat to let the cares of everyday life melt away.

Sun or have coffee on the back deck in total privacy with just the squirrels and the songbirds to keep you company. After sunset, star gaze with the one you love or cozy up to the fire pit ...it's all here for you to enjoy!

The owners of this place, Pete and Carol, are wonderful people and great hosts. We don’t have enough words to express our gratitude to them for letting us stay in the beautiful, stylish and cozy Heron Pointe. It was such a blessing for us to be at this home. Everything is so well balanced here. It is just perfect place to be!
One day in March, there was a snowstorm. Everything looked magical outside. Snow that lay on the trees was slowly being blown by the wind. It was so quiet and peaceful. That day, the view from the living room to the lake, reminded me so much of my motherland Russia. It felt like we were in the famous Russian novel “ Doctor Zhivago” by Boris Pasternak. It was cool.

Heron Pointe was very relaxing with amazing scenery in a convenient location. The house was nice and clean it had everything we needed when we arrived, was very comfortable with the fireplace kinda like a home away from home. I will definitely stay at Heron Pointe next time I am in town.

This home was very comfortable, beautifully decorated, generously appointed, extremely clean, and so quiet and peaceful. The owners couldn't have been warmer or more inviting. This was the perfect place for our family of four and I hope it's available every time we come to town. If you're looking for a "home away from home" - this is it!

Was in awe when I entered this amazing home. It was delightful and so relaxing! The decor was outstanding and inviting. Our family enjoyed having a breakfast waiting for us. We are from Indiana and could relax the day we arrived because of all the amenities that were made available. The home is well maintained and was clean. The beds were very comfortable.We enjoyed the fireplace in the living room while we played games and watched TV. The furniture was updated and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked to return next year. We thank the owner for her hospitality! Highly recommend this home for a get away.

We booked to spend our 7 weeks in Michigan at Heron Pointe after reading the other great reviews, and after our very rewarding, friendly and easy email dealings with Carol (Heron Pointe's owner). It's often hard to know whether other reviewer's experiences are going to live up to our expectations - in this case all the comments you read here are well-founded.
We arrived after a long flight from Europe. Carol was there waiting for us. She gave us a quick tour, answered our preliminary questions and left our tired selves to find our place.
What struck me first was the calm. Then the cleanliness - I felt we could move straight in and start using everything without concern - kitchens in hotels and rented homes can often be in need of a "once over" before they feel ready to be used.
The beds are great, the towels are soft and abundant, the arrival breakfast is plentiful, the shower is powerful, the view is incredible, the kitchen has all you need, the TV is huge but does not overwhelm the room and on and on I could go.
In transit from our life in France to a new life in Australia, we were in real need of a home for our 7 week stay and we found it here. We all agree we could have stayed longer - it was hard to leave the natural setting, the luxury, Carol and Pete's friendliness, the garden, the deer on the lawn each day, the small lake with its turtles and birdlife. Access to the local private lake meant we could swim and picnic in the area while the local shops and supermarkets meant that being in this beautiful area of Michigan was simple and immensely enjoyable.
For international folk, Heron Pointe is a very special way to get to know this area of the US that is so close to so many things, is incredibly beautiful and so friendly. Weekend trips to Chicago, Milwaukee, Niagara Falls along with lots of local sightseeing and adventuring were made easier by being able to return to Heron Pointe - or "home" as it became for us.

Enjoy all the fun of an 'up north' vacation without the drive or the hassles. Located about 45 minutes (or less) from downtown Detroit, Metro Airport, Ann Arbor, Flint/Saginaw or just about any metro Detroit suburb, Heron Pointe Guest House offers you total privacy in a luxurious natural setting.

We're located in White Lake, Michigan on 7 wooded acres complete with a 2 acre pond, 3 waterfalls and all the nature you can handle! Unlike a B & B where you simply get a room, at Heron Pointe Guest House, you'll have the full run of the property...all to yourself!

We're also less than five minutes from Alpine Valley Ski Resort, two all-sports lakes (with beach and boating privledges)and the Highland State Recreation Area, Shopping, golf, quaint towns and fine dining are also close by. Heron Pointe offers a nice balance between fun things to do and the opportunity to cozy up and just relax in an immaculate, comfortable home away from home.
