Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Fully renovated cottage located right on Lake Huron. Open floor plan with lake views from many rooms of the house. Great for a relaxing getaway or an outdoor adventure with family/friends.

Short drive to Downtown Port Austin. Walk-able to Pointe aux Barques lighthouse.

Swim, kayak, play in the huge yard, nap in the hammock, watch the freighters pass from the patio, or curl up with a book in the shaded outdoor sitting area.

There is a lakeside bonfire pit for incredible star gazing & s'mores.

The space
We purchased this gem last year and have been renovating it ourselves bit by bit ever since. You wouldn't know it now based on the final product, but the lake house was truly a diamond in the rough when we bought it. After experiencing Lake Huron and the incredible view, the decision practically made itself. Renovating this property has been a labor of love and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

We have WiFi, air conditioning and heat to keep you comfortable and connected in any season.

There are 2 kayaks and an outdoor griddle-style grill available to use on the property.

The kitchen is stocked with all the basic utensils and cookware, Keurig coffee maker and microwave.

We have two TVs, one in the main living area and one in the master bedroom. Both have Rokus so you can sign into any apps you have logins for such as Netflix, Hulu, etc.

There is a washer/dryer if you need to do laundry during your stay.

Unfortunately we do not have a dishwasher.

***Please note - Lake Huron is a beautiful, unpredictable work of nature. We’ve learned the lake changes every day. Some days we have a full sandy beach, others the tide is higher. Some spots in the lake can be mucky and others are perfectly sandy. We'd recommend beach shoes if that bothers you. Unfortunately we can’t predict how the beach/lake will be each day but the good news is – if the conditions aren’t ideal today, tomorrow is a new day!***

Where you’ll be

Port Hope, Michigan, United States

We love how the area simultaneously brings a sense of calm, but also adventure!

Less than a mile away, a quick scenic walk or bike up the road, is Pointe aux Barques lighthouse. It's not just a beauty, but also holds an interesting backstory. It's one of the ten oldest lighthouses in Michigan and home to the first lifesaving station on the Great Lakes. Definitely worth the walk (or kayak) on your visit!

Downtown Port Austin is just 10 minutes by car.
This quaint village holds a seasonal Farmers Market, 1/2 mile walk along the break wall, waterfront parks, beaches, boating, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, shipwreck scuba diving, fishing, golf, restaurants & more.

Port Crescent State Park and Bird Creek Park are a short drive away.
