About Andrew & Susie
The St. Clair River House has grown as a labor of love undertaken by my wife Susie and I. As the listing states, we began our time in this area living in the House, and have kept it in our family to share it with you all. We both have full-time "real" jobs and do this in our spare time, and endeavor to make your stay at our former home as special as the time we have spent there. We have two small boys who regularly "help" us with work on the house, and there's a good chance if you need any in-person hosting that you may meet one of them! Our life here in southeast Michigan is inextricably connected to the water, and this shines through on the experience we strive to bring to you. Whether its watching a freighter from a distance from the deck of the house, casting a line from the end of the dock, renting one of our available boats to get in the water, or going on a captained trip to be underway right next to a freighter, we're excited to help you craft your perfect vacation!
Andrew & Susie purchased this House in 2009
Why Andrew & Susie chose Roberts Landing
When we first moved to the area for a job in 2009 we dreamed of finding a place on the banks of the St. Clair River. Well, the Great Recession afforded us that opportunity, and the moment we walked into what is now the St. Clair River House, we knew it would be our home together. While we have since moved about 45 minutes away to facilitate another job change, the River has remained a part of our hearts. The house is a perfect blend of historical charm and modern luxury, and we make it there for weekends whenever we can and are not sharing it with all of you.
What makes this House unique
There are not many places in the world where you can live so close to not only an international border, but all the activity a deepwater shipping lane has to offer. The St. Clair River House has this in spades. And oh, the ships, the ships. the ships. The historical charm of the cottage is complimented by the luxury baths, kitchen, furnishings, and linens, and it makes for the perfect setting for an interesting and relaxing vacation with loved ones. We designed the main floor to create the perfect social space. The open floor plan downstairs encourages interactions with the rest of your vacationers, but the bedrooms upstairs provide a little slice of private perfection when it is time to retire for the night.

Family Getaway at the St. Clair River House
Our family enjoyed our weekend getaway at the St. Clair River House so much. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. So fun to watch the freighters go by. Andrew and Susie have a very nice home and were very helpful if we anything. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.
Our vacation stay
Excellent view of lake st clair and her majestic freighter passings, comfy home with lots of room, well stocked kitchen.
Clean and updated all around ; definitely not like staying in hotel room or old musty cottage. We just love it and our time spent here!
Brothers Sisters and Ships
This was the greatest!
The River house perfect for the 7 of us. My 2 Brothers and 1 Sisters-in-law hardly left the deck or the computer (boat nerd). They had never encountered shipping on the Great Lakes!
SOS much more was provided that I had not anticipated. I brought way more staples then I required. Beds were so comfortable. Owners were so friendly and helpful. I would definitely come again
Best spot on the lake
We have rented many properties over the years while staying at the lake and this is by far the cleanest, best views, most accommodations, best renters on the whole lake! Every detail is covered! You’ll love it there!
It was the perfect spot to reunite with friends and enjoy the holiday weekend!!
