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!

Carol Ewing purchased this cottage in 2007

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!

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..

Cozy, restful Winter retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Heron Pointe Guest House had absolutely everything we (three adults and two small dogs) needed for a cozy, restful Winter retreat. Carol and Pete were incredibly gracious hosts and made sure every aspect of our stay fully met our needs and exceeded our expectations. Every room was as well appointed as a luxury hotel, beautifully decorated in soothing tones. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the dishes and equipment anyone could need, and there was plenty of storage throughout. (Every square foot put to good use!) The views from every window were so beautiful and peaceful, too. We loved walking the dogs around the property (which was lovely in Winter but would be spectacular when trees and plants, garden, are in full bloom!). Would recommend this property without hesitation.

A great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Heron Pointe. We find it to be a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the scenery that awaits out the back door. This home is the perfect place to get away and still feel that comfortable feeling you may experience in your own home. The property that the home sits on will leave you with a constant sense of serenity. My favorite is looking out at the pond each morning with a cup of coffee. The owners are very kind and you can see that reflected in all the touches throughout Heron Pointe!

Well Appointed Beautiful Home !

  • 5 of 5

Where to start when describing this beautiful well appointed home? The acreages surrounding the home is well maintained with a huge garden with wonderful vegetables and herb to prepare your favorite recipes. Inside the home you will find all the comforts of your personal residence. We had the opportunity to rent this marvelous home for a month. The Ewing's where very conscientious to make sure that our stay was 5 Star. There are a number of stores, restaurants and activities near the home.

The only negative about this great home is everyone wants to come back, so you have to book early to make sure your time is available.

Thank you again Carole for making our stay so memorable.

Delightfully secluded with beautiful landscaping.

  • 5 of 5

The tranquil and beautiful setting set the tone for the entire stay. The warm living room was extremely comfortable and the entire house was well appointed. Upon arrival we were greeted with fresh cut roses, wine on ice and a refrigerator stocked for a continental breakfast. The house was fully stocked with paper products and cleaning supplies for the entire month as well as a garden we were encourage to enjoy. The proprietors were readily available for questions which were few. The location was handy to the Detroit area. A totally delightful experience and if returning to Michigan, I would stay again at Heron Point.

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.
