About Cindy

I came to Lexington as a newlywed freshly graduated from Western Michigan University with a Masters in Occupational Therapy. We moved to the Lake in 1989 before my youngest could walk and stayed for 14 years full-time!

Cindy purchased this house in 1989

Why Cindy chose Eastern Michigan

I fell in love with this property at first sight. It was a disaster, but as my friends all said "it has a lot of potential". I worked at the hospital one day a week while the girls were small and began fixing up the old house and guest house. We lived and worked in the area and in this home for 14 years while the girls were growing up. We rented the guest house to families with young children during the summer so the girls always had playmates!

What makes this house unique

Beach walking remains my favorite lake house activity. Our beach is very walkable in both directions, I search for sea glass,fossils and rocks! There is no light pollution in this area so the stars are especially bright, star gazing is one of my favorite night-time activities. I love to lie in the hammock, listen to the surf and watch the stars.

I often go to the cottage during the full moon, the moon rise over the water is amazing!!!

My favorite time of day at the cottage is SUNRISE!!!

The gardens at the cottage are nice to enjoy, they bloom all summer long!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cindy, we can't thank you enough for the use of your cottage in June 2009. The cottage was very clean & well maintained for our family escape. We spent most of our time in the yard at the fire pit taking in the view. We had a large party and everyone found something to do whether it was golf (close by), shopping in Port Huron or just hanging back reading a book in a peaceful setting. We look forward to future getaways in Lexington! The MacLellan Clan!

The location, yard, beach is amazing! we rented both house and cottage. Lake Huron is so clean and beautiful. Until we arrived were not aware there was no AC. The big house was manageable with the breeze off the lake. The cottage was almost unbearable despite the abundance of fans provided. Owner provides ample starter supplies, and kayaks, bikes etc. The tips about water shoes were much appreciated! And the ability to bring our dogs was a blessing. They had a great time! Cons to the site were the advertised wi-fi is not sufficient for online college classes, or work purposes. The lack of privacy in the cottage (the 2 bedrooms are connected with a door that has no knob and doesn't lock) bathroom with a shower so small that a petite female can barely move, and the lack of AC.The cottage floors were all cement which did work out well with not having to worry about wet sandy dogs. The cottage was more like glorified camping,, so disappointing due to the $ we paid. We did have a great week of good weather and family time.

Great Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great week at Cindy's wonderful home. Second year in a row for us. Huge place with plenty of room. We have had as many as 10 adults and 11 kids. You can have campfires on the beach or in the fireplace in the front yard. 3 kayaks. BBQ that's hooked up to the house's natural gas line. Second house behind the main house that can fit a large family. Private and secluded. Probably one of the best stretches of beach from Lexington to Port Sanilac. Great experience!

Wonderful homey property

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and clean. And the view is spectacular there. We had 15 people and rented both properties and there were ample amenities. Even a small thing such as toilet paper, as we have in the past had to purchase more, was provided. The only thing we didn't realize was Lake Huron is very rocky and would suggest water shoes. Would definitely return

Great for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a three generation family reunion, with kids from 6 months to 18, and families from midwest, southeast and northeast (this was a comfortable day or day and a half drive for everyone). The grandkids organized, and we all enjoyed week-long ping-pong, chess, and monopoly tournaments, kayaking, volleyball, and s'mores on the beach. The grill and outdoor tables and chairs were great for dinners with the whole group.

The variety and age-span of the available indoor and outdoor recreational “tools” was remarkable - things to read, things to read to others, indoor games, outdoor games, etc. - and all well-organized and stored.
