About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

This lakefront comfortable clean cottage is only 1 1/2 hours from the Detroit Metropolitan area. We are open all year round and priced so that families can come and enjoy themselves in a cottage that looks directly at Lake Huron for a week, during a week or a getaway weekend. The Sailaway is located in a friendly resort town complete with free music in the park during the summer, golf courses, restaurants, coffee shops, craft fairs, festivals, kayak rentals and oh so much more!

Step out your front door and enjoy swimming, lying on the beach, boating, walking, fishing, or sit on the wrap around deck while watching the freighters. Cook your marshmallows while relaxing on the log swing built for three. Love to read? Sit on the wicker chairs in the screened in porch while watching the boats sail by. Lexington in the thumb area is a fabulous place to watch the fall change of colors. Close by is the voted "most beautiful' harbor in Michigan.

The Sailaway Cottage can sleep up to seven. Relax in front of the gas fireplace with cable TV and/or DVD player. Listen to your favorite music on the stereo. Light up the charcoal BBQ grill and cook your fresh caught fish or prepare a meal in the fully stocked kitchen.

The Sailaway master bedroom has 1 queen-size Serta firm bed. Upstairs, there are 3 rooms. The first room has 1 twin and a window air conditioner. The second room has two twin beds and a view of Lake Huron. The third bedroom has 2 twin beds and looks directly at Lake Huron. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need including a full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, cups, glasses and more! The kitchen dining room table seats eight. There are outdoor tables and chairs on the deck. There are numerous fans throughout the cottage.

Enjoy playing horseshoes in the yard or set up a volleyball net. There is plenty of room to enjoy all the summer activities. Thank you for considering A-1 Cottage Rentals.

About Carol Watson

We have been renting cottages to people for over 25 years. We supply our cottage with the things that we always want when we go on vacation like a full refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, pots, pans, silverware, bowls, utinsels and more! Lake Huron is only a few steps away

Carol Watson purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Carol Watson chose Eastern Michigan

Lexington is the secret gem on the eastern shores of Michigan. We offer everything from the theatre to golf to fishing to swimming on a great lake for half the cost of going to the western side of Michigan. Small town friendliness, unique shops and beautiful beaches which is what attracted us to the area.

What makes this cottage unique

Our family enjoys sitting on the deck gazing at Lake Huron with the comforts of a bathroom close by, a full size refrigerator, comfortable chairs, tables for your food and drinks and the peacefulness of the area. We also love sitting with a good book in the screened in porch sitting on one of the wicker chairs while looking at the lake.

Great cabin rentals!

  • 5 of 5

We rented 5 cabins for a group trip. Great location - far from the main road and beautiful grounds. Great beach area and easily accessible. Cabins were clean and well-maintained. Perfect location! Our entire group had a great time! Dog-friendly!

Our thoughts on the Sailaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth year we have rented the Sailaway cottage from A1 Cottage Rentals in Lexington, Michigan. Every year when we show up, the Sailaway is very clean, very dry, and pest free. The mattresses and linens on the bed are also very clean and pest free. We bring little girls under 10 to the cottage, and the beach is right across the street. The Sailaway has a large kitchen with a large table which is great for family gatherings in the evening for a zealous board game. All the appliances work and there is plenty of hot water for all to freshen up after a day at the beach. We have rented cottages from others in the past and had more bad experiences than good experiences, and after the Sailaway, we simply would not consider a different cottage.

Owner's Response: At A1 Lakefront Cottage Rentals, we believe that repeat business is the name of the game. We've watched the children and grandchildren grow up over the years and become part of our family so to speak. A1 provides good mattresses, bedding and furniture that would we expect to have if we were renting someone else's home!

Relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend at this cottage was restful and enjoyable. In addition to the homey, comfortable inside atmosphere, the enclosed porch allows views of Lake Huron if it's not nice enough to sit outside. There is a nice, large wrap around porch that also provides a lovely view of the lake. A park that has steps down to the beach is directly across the street from the house. Great location!!

Owner's Response: The Sailaway Cottage does have gorgeous views of Lake Huron from the wrap around deck, screened in porch and the living room. There is plenty of room to set up a volleyball net and to play horseshoes which is already in the yard. Many of our return customers have already reserved a week for next year!
