About Thomas & Jill

We live in Novi, Michigan and have enjoyed our cottage in Harrisville for many years. We have 2 children and a dog.

Thomas & Jill purchased this house in 2002

Why Thomas & Jill chose Northern Michigan

We orginally fell in love with this property for its quiet beachfront location with miles of walking beach. The house is in a very wooded area, but the view to the lake is unobstructed. The house is next door to a state park - very private location with only one neighbor.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the quietness that comes from having the light house state park right next to our property.

We spend a lot of time at the beach sunbathing and swimming. In the evenings and at night we have fire in the beachside firepit, make s'mores and gaze at the beautiful starlit sky.

We enjoy going to Harrisville for dinners and entertainment and in particular the spectacular 4th of July fireworks.

We enjoy beachwalks and bike rides on the quiet streets.

Catch fresh trout yourself at the trout farm only one mile from the house on the way to town.

Fantastic Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience in this vacation rental. The open floor plan and many windows to view Lake Huron was beautiful. What a way to fall asleep listening to the waves from the lake. The two teenage boys enjoyed kayaking, playing hoops, and fires on the beach making S'mores. My husband and I enjoyed long walks on the beach. The master bedroom was great. It was upstairs giving us privacy and a wonderful sitting area and separate deck to enjoy time alone. We would highly recommend this rental. We definitely plan to come back again next year.

Fantastic vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the past week at this beautiful rental. It was FANTASTIC! The house is beautiful. The upstairs master suite is perfect. The kitchen and gathering spaces are bright, open and inviting. The outdoor spaces are wonderful and Lake Huron is magnificent! The owners have provided lots of info for nearby attractions, restaurants, shopping, etc. which is very helpful. We highly recommend this rental!!

Great Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at this great house. The house has everything you need to move right in and make yourself at home. It is laid out beautifully with great lighting, top of the line appliances, and comfortable couches and bedding. The kids loved the HUGE bath tub in the master suite! The beach toys, including kayaks, floaties, boogie boards, pails and shovels, were perfect for our family. The water is up quite a bit which makes a more difficult beach walk - but we made it up and down a few times. Sturgeon Point Lighthouse is a short walk away and our family went there every day as the kids love doing the scavenger hunts and checking out the gift shop. We also made excursions to Alpena (Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum (FREE!!!)), Tawas Area (Newman St, State Park), and Lumberman's Monument. The local library and state park also provided free activities. This is our third time staying in the Harrisville area and we love it. Great beach and swimming, incredible sunrises, and a nice relaxing atmosphere! Highly recommended!

Spectacular 4-Star Respite!!

  • 5 of 5

After a loss, my mother and I booked this place months in advance of June and every bit of the wait was worth that and the truly reasonable rate. Each of the girls in our group walked into this place starry eyed, saying that even the wonderful photos hardly did it justice. Nothing less than stunning for any time of year, no doubt. The master suite alone is enough reason to grab this while you can but the kitchen was wonderful for entertaining, beautiful, private setting quiet and left only the sound of incoming waves, the gazebo was a high point and great frontage. The walk to Sturgeon Point was very snappy and we took home amazing pictures of our own. Wonderful rock collecting adventure and such an easy jaunt to quaint Harrisville, I made my teen make the run a couple of times.

We can't wait to book again with these wonderful people and we found the caretakers left us to ourselves, yet made themselves available in the event anything might be needed, a phone call away. Perfection all the way with the added personal touch!

Wonderful Lake House !

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to this Wonderful home for 3 years now. Everything about it is nice. Quiet private beach, Screened in Gazebo if it gets too buggy. Beautiful Lake House with room to do whatever you want. We relaxed on the beach every day and had Fires every night. Everyone can be in the kitchen/great-room while meals are being prepared and shared. The owner and the Caretaker have always been friendly and accommodating.
