Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 5

Relax and unwind in this charming totally renovated 40's style cottage on 7 private and secluded wooded acres. Stroll the grounds, try a cast or two from the bridge overlooking our peaceful private stocked pond...or take a serene walk through the woods. You might even catch a glimpse of our stealthy blue heron.

Luxuriously comfortable furnishings, a wood burning stove, and a nicely appointed kitchen create a welcome retreat to let the cares of everyday life melt away. Think of Heron Pointe not just as a "rental; " it's your home away from home!

Sun or have coffee on the back deck in total privacy with just the squirrels and the songbirds to keep you company. After sunset, star gaze with the one you love or cozy up to the fire pit ...it's all here for you to enjoy!

About Carol Ewing

Pete and I bought the cottage and land that is contiguous to our home and other property in 2007 and did extensive renovations to make it a super comfy and relaxing retreat. Originally planned as over-flow lodging for our family and friends, we realized that the guest house was truly a unique place, that we were blessed to be the stewards of this land and that we wanted to share it with others. And ta-da ...Heron Pointe was established and opened for business in 2009!

Since then we have continually added and upgraded the property and its amenities. We invite you to check us out! It would be our honor and pleasure to have you as our guests.

What makes this cottage unique

With about 7 1/2 acres of woods, gardens, lawn, wetlands, meadow lands, a huge organic garden open to our guests and the pond, Heron Pointe offers a bio-diverse and super private natural setting that offers luxury, comfort, restorative sanctuary and fun!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place Heron Pointe is! We cannot say enough good things about it. From the moment you arrive you feel special & very much at home. The guest house is charming, beautifully decorated and well prepared for guest. Not to mention the awesome grounds with an up north feel plus beautiful flowers and an amazing garden. The location is perfect, close to shopping and multiple parks for walking, biking or enjoying a picnic. Heron Pointe is the perfect oasis for anyone looking for a special place to stay. Your host Carol & Pete are there to take care of any needs you have and soon feel like special friends. We love that place!

Heron Pointe - Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Carol and Peter have done a wonderful job of creating a guest house that feels like "Home". My wife and I rented for a month while visiting friends and family in Michigan. Heron Pointe has everything you would expect in a vacation home plus many things/features you would not. We were exceptionally comfortable during our stay, and in fact have reserved Heron Pointe again next July.

Lovely place to get away

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with everything one needs for a few days away. The deck and huge yard (with trees, trails, and pond) in particular, are great places to relax. In the past three days we've seen deer, groundhogs, a possum, and a variety of birds. And Carol is a charming, thoughtful host. Loved it.

Beautiful well appointed home, lovely grounds

  • 5 of 5

Heron Pointe was a beautiful relaxing oasis for me when I needed solace from the business of the everyday world and "people-ing." The grounds and wildlife were a spiritual place for me and my dogs: we walked them several times daily. Carol & Pete provided everything needed for a perfect stay, even fresh flowers and were some of the most welcoming people I have ever met. There is a big cozy chair by the Clinton River as well as a big fire pit a little further down. I loved the WIFI and cable on the large flat screen tv as well. I hope to visit again soon.

Owner's Response: Tammy, thank you so much for your kind words! We loved having you as our guest!! Just a tiny point of correction...the water feature on the property is actually a 2 acre private pond that we fondly and kiddingly call "Lake Ewing!." It is part of the Clinton River watershed that runs through our area, feeding the many lakes, ponds and wetlands..

Enjoy all the fun of an 'up north' vacation without the drive or the hassles. Located about 45 minutes (or less) from downtown Detroit, Metro Airport, Ann Arbor, Flint/Saginaw (just a little farther to East Lansing!) or just about any metro Detroit suburb, Heron Pointe Guest House offers you total privacy in a luxurious natural setting.

A great rental for football weekends for Michigan State or U of M Big House games!

Elegant shopping at The Somerset Collection and Twelve Oaks Mall. Great outlet shopping too in Brighton or Birch Run.

Other Detroit attractions include the Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village, the Motown Museum, The incomparable Detroit Institute of Arts, MGM Grand, Motor City and Greektown Casinos, The Detroit Science Center, The Charles Wright Museum of African American Art and the Detroit Historical Museum.

We're located in White Lake, Michigan on 7 wooded acres complete with a 2 acre pond, 2 waterfalls and all the nature you can handle! Unlike a B & B where you simply get a room, at Heron Pointe Guest House, you'll have the full run of the property...all to yourself!

We're also less than five minutes from Alpine Valley Ski Resort, two all-sports lakes (with beach and boating privileges)and the Highland State Recreation Area. Shopping, golf, quaint towns and fine dining are also close by. Heron Pointe offers a nice balance between fun things to do and the opportunity just to cozy up and relax in an immaculate, comfortable home away from home.
