Guestbook comments from the owner
Cindy, we can't thank you enough for the use of your cottage in June 2009. The cottage was very clean & well maintained for our family escape. We spent most of our time in the yard at the fire pit taking in the view. We had a large party and everyone found something to do whether it was golf (close by), shopping in Port Huron or just hanging back reading a book in a peaceful setting. We look forward to future getaways in Lexington! The MacLellan Clan!

We lived in this home for 14 years while the girls were growing up. We rented the guest house to families with young children during the summer so the girls always had playmates! We plan to retire here someday!

Beach walking remains my favorite activity at my lake house. Our beach is very walkable in both directions, I search for sea glass,fossils and rocks! There is no light pollution in this area so the stars are especially bright, star gazing is one of my favorite night-time activities. I love to lie in the hammock, listen to the surf and watch the stars.

I often go to the cottage during the full moon, the moon rise over the water is amazing!!!

My favorite time of day at the cottage is SUNRISE!!!

The gardens at the cottage are nice to enjoy, they bloom all summer long!

Beautiful location for our special event!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage served as the location for our wedding a few months ago. We had wanted a location on the water with enough room to accommodate as many guests as possible (we were expecting many people from out of the area) and Sunrise Shores delivered! The beds are very comfortable and the whole location has a very homey feel to it. The kitchen has everything that you might need and there is lots of seating outdoors for a leisurely meal. Cindy is absolutely amazing and is such a gracious host. We were lucky enough to meet her in person our first day there!

I cannot say enough positive things about Sunrise Shores and the amazing location! We will definitely be returning to celebrate in the future!

A Very Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5
Our family gathering that takes place every 3 years with family from 11 different states was very relaxing here in MI. The bonfires on the beach soothed the soul, viewing the freighters was exciting, setting outside chatting away the day on the lawn furniture was refreshing and the accomodations couldn't have been better. There was plenty of room for everyone, the kitchen was well stocked, the house comfy and warm, very welcoming and the neighborhood was quiet. Town was nearby with a couple of great restaurants, shopping and other things to see & do. Our hosts answered ALL of our many questions and the whole vacation was just what we'd all expected. THANK YOU!

Our vacation in August 2009, staying at Cindy's House on beautiful Lake Huron was more than we imagined it would be! What an absolutely wonderful location and view. This property had something for everyone in our family! Several special things for us were the "private beach", where we played in the water, searched for sea glass and found some WONDERFUL stones and rocks for souvenirs. When we weren't on the beach we were sitting the shade watching the Great Lakes freighters go by. We came home with fond vacation memories and a much greater appreciation for The Great Lakes!
