This spacious home on 7 acres and with 300 feet of lake front is 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 plenty of 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 6 full size beds, one single bed, two bunk beds, and a pullout sofa. Clean linens and towels 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.
The beach front provides access to a shallow bay for wading and water play, 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 bottom). The nearby beaches in Forestville and Harbor Beach are easily accessible and great for swimming.
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. And, just a mile away, is the sandy beach in the town of Forestville! 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. And, Fosters Bar and Grill (great food and drink, billiards, karaoke, etc) is an easy 5-minute walk from the house making for a fun destination!
