Very nice place

  • 5 of 5

I would say I would have to agree on all points from the previous reviews. All the amenities you would need and very nice and accommodating hosts (Sarah & Craig). A few things people might have an issue with which I didn't read the descriptions and reviews too closely: It is in basement of the owners home which to me I didn't have a problem with but I know some people would getting there and discovering that. Also parking is kind of a hassle if you have more than two vehicles. The one neighbor thinks he is the neighborhood parking watch and will call the police if you park the wrong way. I would suggest maybe parking at the marina 5 min away. Otherwise besides that it was a very nice clean place. Hosts are great and it was a great find for the weekend stay for a wedding I had to attend with my friends.

Amazing lakefront stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a girls-weekend in the beautiful lakefront cottage. The deck, including outdoor-kitchen, bbq-grill and hot-tub, is beautiful and in tip-top shape. The indoor- and outdoor-kitchen are fully equipped. The bedrooms in the nicely remodeled basement of the owner’s home were very clean and comfortable for six of us. We loved the lake view and the easy access to Lake Huron. Even kayaks and a raft for fun activities were available.

We participated in a paddle-relay event. A special thanks here to Craig who made arrangements with his friend Pat to transport us back and forth with the kayaks and paddle boards to the different harbors between Lexington and Port Sanilac. Thanks a lot! We really appreciate the great support.

Sarah and Craig are excellent people and really friendly. They let us have our privacy and the whole garden and deck for ourselves.

We definitely would recommend this rental and we look forward to visit again in the future.

Inaugural guests

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to be the first guests at this property. Located in the nicely remodeled basement of the owners' home, it was perfect for my husband and myself, although spacious enough for six. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, without being intrusive. We had full use of all the amenities, from the lovely deck on Lake Huron's shore to the hot tub and outdoor kitchen, just to name a few. The home is within walking distance of the harbor and downtown businesses and restaurants. We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to booking there again next year.
