Why Cindy chose Eastern Michigan

We lived 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! We plan to retire here someday!

What makes this cottage 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!

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.

The Allen Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family ranged in ages from 45 to 9 and everyone enjoyed their stay. The main house was spacious for our group. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans. The kids loved the beach with a bonfire, playing volleyball and kayaking. The teens loved the ping pong table to play and hang out in the evenings.

We felt at home cooking favorite meals (grilling on the gas grill), slicing up watermelons outside for all to enjoy, and having water balloon fights outside. We even met Cindy, who was a gracious host, and answered all of our questions. We hope to come again next year!
