About Mike and Sharon Lahti

We have 6 Children & 14 Grandchildren who we absolutely adore. We are in the real estate and rental business. We lead very busy lives, but would have it no other way.

Mike and Sharon Lahti purchased this house in 2005

Why Mike and Sharon Lahti chose Michigan

It is secluded, yet close to town. You walk in and right away it feels like home; and to have 300 ft. of Sandy Beach and a dock to fish off, there is no question that your stay with us will be one that you will remember. Disconnect from the whirlwind and relax at our cabin. You won't even realize you aren't plugged in! (ie: no internet access)

What makes this house unique

Our Children & the Grandchildren can play in the water and it is shallow for quite a ways.

Our Sauna is so relaxing and a jump in the lake after will cool you off right away.

Also, we know you will enjoy having enough room for all of your family and/or friends to gather.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in Hancock and the surrounding area. The home was beautiful, quiet, and in a great location for getting to all the places we wanted to go. We loved the sauna and all the space to spread out and relax in the evening. The lake was beautiful with the fall colors just starting to change. There was a little chipmunk on the deck that would come within inches of us and say hi. My three girls, 14, 13, and 11, really enjoyed it as well and want to move to the UP now :) It was a wonderful home away from home and gave us all a much needed break from the day to day run around here at home. We are planning a return trip for next year! Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely home!

Houghton Lakeside Home

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely! The deck, the dock, the view and the home was a perfect spot for part of our U.P. tour. We have stayed at numerous VRBO rentals and this one was truly over the top. I felt like I moved into someone's home and not a rental unit. Thank you, Sharon, for welcoming us and providing a lovely place to stay.

Wonderful lakeside home

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent our second vacation at the beautiful Sparkling Shores Beach Home. Once again we enjoyed the lovely setting of trees, wildflowers and the sparkling lake as well as the comfortabe, spacious and well equiped home. The large deck provided a perfect place to dine, read, and stargaze. our family looks forward to reliving this wonderful experience in two years.

A Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed in this lovely secluded home while attending a family wedding in the U.P. over a long weekend. The owners were MOST accommodating for your shorter than a week stay at this beautiful setting even providing coffee for our first morning there. It was so much better than living in a hotel for 5 days. We had a beautiful deck, comfortable living room, sauna and lake view to relax and unwind in between all the festivities of the weekend. Thank you.

Commencement Stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for Michigan Tech Commencement. Very tranquil area and enjoyed a fire down by the lake. House was as described on the website. Great location for a group or family getaway. I would recommend this property.
