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.

wonderful house! wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights end of November 2017. What a wonderful home! So many amenities. Our favorite part was the water. Beautiful views from inside and outside on the deck. We had unseasonably warm weather, so we were able to sit outside on the deck. The sunrise was breathtaking! The full moon over the water, magical! We are so glad we stayed in Michigan for our get away, because this home made it all worth while!!

Petty good property.

  • 4 of 5

We liked everything except guest house. Gust house was not very clean and had an odd layout. Had to squeeze past ladder to get to bathroom. Bathroom shower extremely small in guest house. Should have advertised that climbing a ladder was necessary to get to loft. No remote for one of the TVs. Other than that it was a lovely property and we enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful home - lots of room, had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Barkshanty home and we truly enjoyed our time. This home was beautiful, very clean, spacious and cozy! The view is awesome - we loved watching the freighters in the distance. The pool was so nice and the night time lights that change color (under water) made it extra special. We had a very relaxing and wonderful time. The owners were responsive and very kind.

An awesome winter family get away!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husband's 60 th birthday with our kids and grandkids an it was a blast! The house is huge and plenty of beds. There is even a guest cottage to use! The game room is separate from the house which was great so we could have fun without waking up those down for naps. Having an indoor pool for the winter is the most amazing feature! If you don't have fun here you don't know how to have fun!

Thank you so much for everything!!!
