About Bay View Rental, LLC., Mary Babcock

We've lived here all our lives and one day plan to move into this home ourselves.

Bay View Rental, LLC., Mary Babcock purchased this house in 2010

Why Bay View Rental, LLC., Mary Babcock chose Eastern Michigan

The house came on the market at the right time and we love the location.

What makes this house unique

The house sits just off of M-25 so you are close to the highway but avoid the noise. Most of the homes on this drive are not rentals so the neighbors are very welcoming and friendly, its a quiet peaceful neighborhood.

Beautiful views and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us. It is nicely spread out with 2 different sleeping areas and the open living room and huge deck provide an outlet for the early risers to have coffee without waking everyone else up. The beach and water are perfect for young kids as it stays shallow hundreds of feet out. No worry about undertow! Overall a great place and the owner was fantastic to work with!

Our family stayed at this beautiful Port Austin home for a long weekend in June. We all LOVED it! The wrap-around deck was amazing. We saw a lightning storm off in the distance the first night we were there - it was spectacular! We all took walks down the beach and saw interesting rock formations - even a rock island that we all mentioned we'd like to kayak to and have a picnic there one day. A few of us went into Port Austin on Saturday to the Farmers Market - very enjoyable. Some family members went swimming - the lake was warm for the month of June.

My sister and I were lucky enough to see a 'family' of bald eagles ...we'll never forget that. Also, the sunsets were out of this world! When we needed the owners for a few questions, they were always very helpful.

We'll definitely book again in 2017!

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was a slice of heaven--perfect in every way! We were there with my kids and grandkids--6 adults and 2 two year olds and there was plenty of space. The house was equipped with everything we needed. The sunsets were amazing and we saw deer and a bald eagle on the beach. There was a perfectly placed bonfire pit overlooking the water. The shallow sandy water was perfect for the babies. We also had fun exploring Port Austin and even rented kayaks. We were able to kayak over to the beach house and use them all day. All in all, it was a great family vacation and we made wonderful memories!

Guys Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect weekend from start to end. My group was about 10 people and had plenty of room for everyone. Beach was perfect and had a great view from the deck and gazebo in the back. Owner's were easy to get along and have great communications. Would consider coming back next year and definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice up north getaway.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, great location with everything you need for the perfect getaway! We had 7 girls and there was plenty of room and we all had a blast. Sat on the beach, watched wild life and the one day it rained we sat in the gazebo and watched the storm roll in over the lake. Already booked a date for next year and cannot wait to go back. Matt and Mary were very accomodating. Love this place!

Fantastic house!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! Plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 children. The deck/gazebo was awesome- I mean awesome!!!! It rained a couple times while we were there but we were still able to stay outside & play games or just hang out in the gazebo. The kitchen pretty much has everything you will need. The layout of the house is great too. We all loved the shallow, hard sandy bottom of the lake and it was quite warm! We had a great time! So much so that we decided (before we even left) to rent it again next Summer. Amazing sunsets!! Close to town. Great restaurants! My only suggestion would be some new pillows for the beds. Thank you for a great house and a fun family vacation! See you next year!
