Looking for a home that offers the quality and luxury that provides the ultimate getaway? You have found it!
NOTE ------ Prices listed for summer rates include second home. Off season pricing does not include second home. When a family rents the big house I will generally not rent the second home to another family (to date I have not).
Enjoy a beach bonfire, drinks on the patio in the shade of a mature maple, or play basketball on the concrete drive out back.
When your outdoor activities are done, come inside for an easy meal prepared in the efficient kitchen then eaten at the dining table with a full view of the water, freighters, and lake activity. Top the day off by watching the sky change as the sun goes down behind you.
The large house offers sleeping for up to 12+ people comfortably situated in 5 bedrooms (2 king, 3 queen, 2 twin), one bedroom downstairs, 4 bedrooms upstairs. The second home has two bedrooms with 3 queen beds (and an extra twin you can put on the floor)
The kitchen and bathrooms are state-of-the-art and feature the latest fixtures. The shower in the master bath is built for 2 and both baths are decorated with granite countertops and ceramic tile.
Having visitors? There is parking for a motor home or RV, up to 40 feet long, at the top of the hill for added guests and available as part of your weekly or 3-day weekend. There is parking for about 10 cars.
Pets are loved but not allowed in this home, keeping it as allergen-free as possible.
I do have a second home on the property that can be added to your rental. This is a completely renovated two bedroom home (new furniture, new appliances, new kitchen, bathroom, paint... winter 2013) The home is very nice inside! There is an extra charge for this home - please call me for details as it depends on how many people are staying and what time of year. It is also available to rent by the week - please call me for details and pricing.
I have 30 acres of wooded property with 4 heated hunting blinds set up -if you are interested in hunting or trap shooting please call me to discuss. There is 100++ acres of public land within 5 miles of the property.
After your stay I ask for a quick email letting me know if there is anything we can add to make your next stay more enjoyable. We also keep a variety of books and movies at the home.
I have had a number of requests to have larger groups of single people stay for a long weekend or week.
Please note - for reservations for the summer I am only accepting reservations that take both homes (June - July - Aug) the price per week for both homes is $5,000. You will not find two homes 30 yards apart that are nicer in the area!!!

About Frank Mossett
My family purchased this home when we lived out of state, now we live in state and simply don't use it. Rather than selling it we rent it to good people to help offset the expenses of keeping it up. When we purchased this home it was a very small two bedroom home - as you can see from the pictures we added the second story along with a new kitchen and bath... Our builder Rick Faszczewski continues to update the two homes and keep them in great condition. In 2014 we completed a $40,000+ remodel to the back house. The tile work on the first floor is amazing! All new furniture on the second floor that has a great deck off the front of the house. Using both homes offers the proximity to enjoy family, however it offers you two homes to enjoy (when enough is enough you can grab a cold beverage and go to the house the loud family member is not in... haha)
Frank Mossett purchased this House in 2003
Why Frank Mossett chose Port Sanilac
This is one of the few homes that does not sit on a bluff and has a sandy shore beach. We wanted to be close enough to town where we could walk, however we didn't want the noise of living in town.. This house is not a musty smelling nasty cottage that has not been cared for - rather it is very well cared for and will continue to be. No smoking is allowed in or near the house. No pets.
What makes this House unique
The second home makes for a great family gettogether. With the two homes there are seven bedrooms total. There is a huge tree out front this allows you to sit in the shade most of the day or move your chair to the beach to enjoy the sun. NOTE - I have been having problems with my email and home away, if you don't hear back within a couple hours please text me.

Great family get away!
What a wonderful weekend we had! Our family of 15, ages 3-62, truly enjoyed our stay in this clean and well stocked lake house. Frank was quick to respond to any questions we had and he had lots of suggestions to help make our trip memorable. We enjoyed the outdoors, playing basketball, had a bonfire and lots of laughs in the large hot tub. We had some friendly competition at the bowling alley in Sandusky on a rainy afternoon. The kids enjoyed the swing, while the moms went to Lexington to go shopping. We rent a home every year, and this is by far the cleanest one we have stayed in.
This place was wonderful. Great space for the family. Everything we needed was there. It was just wonderful.
Thank you for your kind review. My wife and I continue to try to update the furniture and add outdoor toys. Please come visit again
Great spot for a large family gathering.
LOVED the fire pit with seating for 10 right at the water. Bring water shoes, for sure BUT there were many kayaks and life jackets that more than made up for it. The owner was very accommodating and provides anything you could ever need.
Thank you for your kind words. With the water at a 25 year high the beach is more rocky for sure. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay
My family and I visited Frank's Lakehouse
Memorial Day weekend and had an amazing time. The house was wonderful! Everything was very clean and worker fine. We'll definitely plan to return again, if free. I definitely recommend!
Thanks Candice - please come visit again. We are adding a few things this winter to make it an even better stay next year!!!
We really enjoyed the stay. House has 5 bed rooms. Well maintained and clean.
An absolute jewel! Beautiful cottages, beautiful sandy beach. We absolutely loved it!
The two homes on the property are beautifully decorated. You won't find bathroom and kitchen decor like this in most cottages. The beach area is sugar sandy and just a short flat walk out. No hills or bluffs. Fire ring out on the beach is great for night time entertaining. Hot tub on the back porch makes it easy to get comfortable and relax. We'll be back if there are any openings on the 2017 spring/summer/fall schedule.
Port Sanilac, Michigan is a quaint, quiet, quality village located on the shores of Lake Huron, just about 90 minutes north of Detroit, but a world away from any metropolitan hustle & bustle.
