About the property

Private 5000 sq ft Home, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Bath, (sleeps 18-20)

The BarkShanty Lake House is a great place to spend time with family, friends or just a romantic getaway for two. We are 10 miles North of Lexington and only 2 miles from the town of Port Sanilac. This luxurious lake house sits directly on Lake Huron shoreline and has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. This home has an 'INDOOR POOL' so no matter what the weather is outside you are still on vacation!

Our house can accommodate up to 20 people with breath taking views of Lake Huron. We have two large decks facing the lake, one on the main floor off the kitchen and living room and a large brick patio with gas fire pits and patio furniture on the lower level off of the family room and pool room. This 5,000 square foot, lakefront home is lovingly decorated with warm colors and tastefully selected furnishings. The house is completely furnished with high end furniture to quality bedding and bath linens. The kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Every detail has been taken care of just for you!

In the main house we have five bedrooms, two of which are master suites on the main floor and three upstairs. We have 4 1/2 bathrooms in the main house. We also have a library with a gas fireplace and a sleeper sofa that can be used as a bedroom if needed.

On the lower level of the house we have a family room with a natural fireplace, a 50 inch TV and a fully equiped kitchen. Attached to the family room is an amazing pool room with a heated indoor pool. This room also has a full bathroom and a mini bar with a sink.

We offer a guest house on the property which has an awesome view of the lake too. It has a sitting area, a king bed, kitchen, fireplace, full bath and a sleeping loft with two full beds.

There is an amazing 1,000 sq. ft. game room that is also on the property with a sitting area, pool table, foosball, ping pong, air hockey and more.

The large yard to the water has a great fire pit to watch the sunset or just star gazing while listening to the waves. There is a boat house with kayaks, paddle boards and many yard games.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place was great, a perfect family get away. I specifically choose it because there was a lot to do right at the house and I didn't want the family splitting up and I was not disappointed. From the pool to the game room to the lake everything you would want to do on vacation is right there. I also love that there's not much to do around there, just a couple of cute towns and then you have to drive over 30 minutes to fast food or other retail. The game room being separate from the house was awesome so those who wanted to sleep could and those that wanted to stay up could. It was my first time organizing a family vacation so I was pretty nervous, but everyone was very impressed. We also had one small issue with the cable not working, the owners were very quick to respond and get it taken care of. Great house!

This place was amazing!!! My husband and I rented this home for the day/ night of our wedding for ourselves and the wedding party. It was wonderful! Everyone had an amazing time and it's almost a year later and everyone is still talking about this house. Hoping to plan a trip back to enjoy it for more than a day! Extremely beautiful and we'll maintained. I would recommend this property to anyone. And thank you to the owners for being so accommodating and extremely helpful.

Fantastic, beautiful scenes, very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We felt so welcomed when we arrived at your beautiful home. The description and pictures truly show the layout of this home. All the chocolate treats were very appealing and delicious. We have never stayed at a place that provided so many extra amenities. It made things so much easier! All beds were so comfortable and everything was very clean. There were many extra towels and bedding. Grandkids loved the big room upstairs to have a giant sleepover. There are so many games and things to do! We loved the swimming pool, game room, bikes, volleyball court, kayaks, fire ring, decks, board games, cards, spacious kitchen and dining areas, and big yard areas to play. Each morning God delighted us with the most different and awesome sunrises over the lake. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home.
