About the property

1 Master Suite, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4. Perfect Couples Getaway or Small Group

Perched high on the East shore of Halfmoon Lake in the heart of the Pickney recreation area, Harper's Guest House is the perfect getaway for those looking to explore the many lakes, woods, trails and nature this area has to offer. The cottage sits within 1/8 mile of Halfmoon State Park, offering a beautiful swimming beach and boat launch.

The Waterloo/Pinckney recreation areas encompasses thousands of acres of pristine forest land and many trails open to the public including the Potawatomi Trail and the Waterloo–Pinckney Trail. Trails pass through oak and pine forests, swamps and open meadows. The trails offer some of the best hiking, cross country skiing, mountain biking and hunting in the State of Michigan.

Enjoy the beautiful lake sunsets as you relax on the patio or enjoy a warm campfire or hot tub as you gaze at the stars. Visit a local pub or explore the City of Ann Arbor just 25 miles to the Southeast. The towns of Chelsea, Dexter and Pinckney are all within 15 minutes.

This property is the perfect couples get-a-way. Peaceful, relaxing and quiet. Cottage includes free Wi-Fi, flat screen cable TV, full size kitchen with dishwasher and ice maker. Master suite has a quality Queen size bed and a private bath entrance. Additional sleeping space provided in the pull out bed in couch.

Access to the lake is through the State Park, overnight docking of your personal boat is not available. The cottage has plenty of parking to accommodate your boat/trailer and the State boat launch is in sight of the property. For a lakefront cottage with a private dock and boat parking, check out our sister property on this same chain of lakes (Homeaway #3929327)

About Bill Harper

My wife were both raised in Farmington, Mi. We moved to the Pickney Recreation Area about 27 years ago.

Great weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

Could have used a little more hot water :) but other than that the lake house had everything we could need for a weekend away.

Beautiful Lake House in Michigan

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in town for The Run Woodstock place and needed a place close by to stay. This lake house was so beautiful and perfect! We loved the adirondack chairs and the openness of the place. It was well equipted and the owners were extremely nice! We would definitely come back!

Great location, perfect for out needs

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect getaway spot for a couple, close to canoeing, plus hiking and mountain biking trails, and in our case a nearby lakeside wedding venue for a family member. Communication with the owner was excellent and access was easy. Highly recommended.

Very nice and private.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed it. Everything was nice. One suggestion, the west windows could

use a shade when the sun is going down.

Thousands of acres of State land surrounding a chain of 7 lakes. Because so much of the land around the lakes is owned by the State, the lakes are much less developed than most other lakes in southern Michigan. Wildlife abounds and some of the natural scenery rivals the beautiful lakes of northern Michigan. Come see for yourself, you'll be glad you did.
