Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

With fully furnished kitchen, fireplace, central air, Jacuzzi, wrap-around deck

My home is 1/4 off M25 on a bluff in a wooded area overlooking Lake Huron. The pristine shoreline offers opportunity to hike and explore nature. One could walk about a mile along the shore in either direction and not see another person. Deer abound, birds wake you in the morning, and the bald eagle keeps watch over the shore.

Activities and Recreation: Craft shows and water sports abound during the summer months. The Can-Am Watercraft Races and spectacular fireworks displays along the shore are early July activities. Watch the sailboats pop over the horizon and pass on their way to Mackinaw during the Port Huron/Mackinaw races. Like antiquing? The thumb will keep you busy. Boat launches, fishing, and sandy beaches are a few miles away. A variety of public golf courses are within a 30-mile radius. Experience a “blast from the past” at a drive-in theater or the newly refurbished theater in Harbor Beach or experience live music and plays in nearby towns. The pristine shoreline also offers opportunity to hike and explore nature.

Owner did not follow through

  • 1 of 5

I would not recommend renting this property from this owner. Despite written electronic communication verifying the week we requested was available and sending the deposit check within less than 24 hours she proceeded to rent the property to another person. When you make a reservation and are prompt in your payment it is reasonable to expect that the other party holds to their end of the bargain. She made no efforts to correct this and blamed it on her age. My family is very disappointed as a vacation we were actively planning and looking forward to the local day trips in the area has fallen through due to the owner not holding to her end of the bargain. Very disappointed in the lack of ethics

Owner's Response: I travel extensively and enjoy sharing my dream home with others. This situation is very upsetting to me as I never want to disappoint a potential client. I have used Homeaway for 11 years and this is only the second time this has happened. As a result, I clearly state on the rental agreement the reservation will be confirmed upon receipt of the security deposit. I received a security deposit for the week in question and confirmed it a few days before receiving this your. I know this is extremely frustrating for you and your family and I apologize again for the inconvenience and misunderstanding.

This home is the most relaxing and beautiful get away you could ever want. The house is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. It's beautiful. Such a nice opened concept which was great when cooking..we were all together. The yard is amazingly cared for. The wild life is wonderful. We saw deer several times a day, just walk past the deck. The lake freighters were beautiful and the birds just sang and sang. On a rainy afternoon, we got a kick out of watching the ground hogs play. We just can't say enough about this place. Clean, well stocked, modern, warm, inviting, amazing. Can't wait to return next year (or this year in the fall)

Absolutely beautiful scenery and wildlife.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with everything you could ask for. The kitchen is well stocked and huge. The master bedroom is beautiful with heated tile and a rain shower. The upstairs had its own balcony so the kids could watch the boats. The stairs down to the lake are steep. There are three flights, it is quite the workout. At the bottom there is a beach to lay out and build sandcastles. Getting to the water was muddy, but Lois has a boat you can use and it was smooth sailing. It was so quiet and peaceful. Just what we needed. When you stay there, there is a brochure for the biggest ice cream scoops in the thumb. Go there!! It was well worth the drive!! We will be back!! Thanks again Lil & Lois!!

The house & grounds were beautiful. Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation. The wildlife & frieghters gave us plenty to see. We enjoyed the farmer's market in Harbor Beach. We ate at William's Inn, Al's & the Anchorage for carry out. The rest of the time we used the BarBQ grill at the house. The family were welcomed at a campground beach near by & went to Lexington for the 4th of July fireworks. The house was clean & well maintained. You had everything we needed and more. A good time was had by all.

Beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. Clean and well maintained. Loved the fireplace as it was still kind of chilly. Wood was provided, which was nice. Enjoyed seeing deer in the yard every evening and lots of different birds enjoying the bird feeders. The view was spectacular. Nice place to get away and relax.

Everything was exactly as described. We didn't want for any amenities. There was even a waffle maker in the pantry. Fire pit is just above the bluff near the stairs, so you get a view of the water/freighters while enjoying your fire. Rabbits galore!
