140' feet of private beach, fire pit, fireplace, internet, sat TV, wooded lot - Harrisville is a great little town. shopping, fishing, golf all near by. There are many restaurants and bars in town. The beach has a great fire pit for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs over the fire!
The City of Harrisville, Michigan is on the western shore of Lake Huron and has a harbor for recreational boaters. The harbor is a center for salmon and trout fishing. It is also a designated 'Harbor of Refuge' on Lake Huron by the US Coast Guard. The Lake Huron beaches in and around Harrisville (including two state parks) have been recognized as being among the 'top ten in Michigan.' 'Old-fashioned lake vacations abound on this pretty stretch of Lake Huron.'
Harrisville, Michigan is on the edge of Huron National Forest, which offers outdoor recreational opportunities such as hunting, swimming, cross-country skiing and trout fishing. The forest contains 330 miles (530 km) of hiking trails. The Huron and Manistee National Forests were separately designated, but were combined in 1945 for administrative purposes.
Sturgeon Point Light Station, a lighthouse and museum is just a few miles to the north, and is open to the public. The town also boasts Harrisville State Park, which includes a wooded campground right along the beach.
We live in Sarasota FL and spend the early summer at the cabin.
ANN and Mike purchased this cabin in 1984
our family cabin has seen 3 generations spend summers here. A great place to get away!
golf, harbor near by fishing too!
Wife and I stayed here for 4 nights to celebrate our anniversary and for a dog trip as well (we have two black labs). The property is in very nice shape. Very clean, good windows, decent bed. About the only downside is the well water has a very strong sulfer smell, but we drank bottled water the whole weekend. Property manager keeps it in good shape. While they do have internet access, don't expect to do much beyond checking email. Feels like it's low end of the spectrum on speed. TV has limited channels (like basic Dish Network service) with just a few HD channels. No cell service for a ways up here with Verizon.
The pictures here really don't do the property justice, I would recommend adding more from the beach. REALLY nice sandy bottom with a few big boulders that you have to be careful of as they're under water. Great fire pit and the place is in the middle of the woods. Very quiet, except for the midnight train that runs during the weekdays once or twice at night!
Water was pretty cold, and I was only able to get into it waist high the first day. The other days were mid 70s and just isn't warm enough for me, but the dogs sure loved it! Looks like you can go out a fair distance before it gets deep.
If you like hiking, the Huron National Forest is right next door, and we walked a number of trails. Do yourself a favor and go down to Lumberman's monument if you can.
For golf we played 9 at Logger's Trace, which while a nice layout, is below par condition (long fairways and greens, etc). However we played White Pine National which was very lady friendly, but still a good test from the back tees. Beautiful course!
This property was perfect for those who really want to get away to seclusion on Lake Huron, while still being a short drive into town. Came up with 6 guys on a golf trip and we had more than enough room to spread out and not feel on top of each other with the three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Having the waves from the lake each night and morning could not have been any better. Would definitely come and stay at this property again with either a group or even a romantic getaway.
This rental was perfect for our group. My wife and I, our daughter and her daughter so it was three generations. We stayed several days and the cabin was exactly what we wanted, with something for everyone. It is located in a thick wooded area with other cabins along a picturesque road. Then when you go out the other side of the cabin, not a far walk, it opens up to a sandy beach on Lake Huron. Being surrounded by the woods, we were surprised that there were no pest bugs (no mosquitoes/black flies)bothering us. Inside- wall to wall carpet throughout including upstairs, Sat. TV, Xbox, WiFi, so the younger ones were good with it. The Manager was extremely helpful and made you feel welcomed. I would recommend this to anyone, unless you have a very large group of course, and there's a lot to see and do in Harrisville, and nearby towns like Oscoda, Alpena etc. We took a lot of pictures around the area, and saw lots of deer along our road. Thanks, great place, we'll do this again.
