Huge new waterfront vacation home on 2 acres

Huge new waterfront vacation home on 2 acres

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 7, 2014
House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 14 Sleeps

Very private, comfortable, large second home, totally renovated

in 2006/2007 approximately 2200 square feet. This is the newest and

nicest available rental on the island. Nothing else has the

frontage,

the lot size, the amenities, the parking, or the dockage.

Renovations included:

New design including addition of full ceiling height sleeping lofts

with conventional staircase access;

New old fashioned front porch with swing;

City water;

New plumbing, fixtures, water heater, septic field and tank;

New windows;

New moldings, interior doors, exterior doors, Anderson doorwall;

New kitchen, gas fireplace-

Two new full ceramic/granite bathrooms;

New siding and exterior roughsawn trim;

Privacy. No busy street between you and the water, no noisy bar

next door, not musty-this bright, airy, roomy, clean and luxurious

setting is exactly what you are looking for. Well over $400,000.00

has been invested to provide you all the top drawer features of a

high end vacation home.

Situated on nearly two acres, you can enjoy the water view and sunsets

from the air conditioned comfort of the house, from the deck, or

from the platform at the end of the dock.

Why have a $3000.00 plus monthly second home mortgage payment when

you can just pick and choose the time you need, and pay for only

that time...

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5
Everything was exactly as stated. What a beautiful home. It's as if you don't have any neighbors. With all the shade trees you feel and really are completely secluded. Lake St. Clair is known for it's smallmouth bass and wow are they fun to catch. You could spend the summer at this place and never run out things to do. Owner was great and very easy to work with. The pier is over 100 yards long and it takes you out past the sandy beach to deeper water which was a plus for those bringing up boats. There is a line of reeds 30 yards past the pier and it really knocks down all the waves coming in from the bigger boats going down the channel and really helps protect the boats from banging the pier. There's just nothing negative about this home. Big, well decorated, nice comfortable beds and everything you need for a great time.

Owner's Response: The dock is capable of mooring several boats, the largest we had was a 50 foot Sea Ray. The swimming and diving are excellent, the water is blue and clear.

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
The owner is very nice and professional. The house is fully furnished and has plenty of sleeping room. It's by far the best house I've rented on the island. The dock is in deep water and the boat parking is proper for a 30' formula without issue. 10' of water at the end of the dock makes for perfect diving and flips without hitting the bottom.
The beds are all comfortable, and the kitchen is perfect for getaways or longer stays. Flat screen TV in the main living room worked great.
The neighbors are quiet and respectful, I got along perfectly with everyone.

Family time on Harsens Island

  • 4 of 5
Thank you Donn we had a great time! We swam, fished, played games, and enjoyed the the home and the deck as much as we could. The pictures don't do the home justice. It has everything you need. We took many great pictures. Thanks Don.

Fabulous Experience!

  • 5 of 5
An excellent all round experience! The house is lovely, clean and updated nicely. The property sits right on the shore and there is very easy access to the water and dock. The owner is great -- very accommodating, flexible and easy to work with. Stayed there with my husband and four kids, endless things to do for the kids to amuse themselves outside. Though it was winter, we could see the nice sandy beach right in front of the house, with shallow water for small kids to gradually wade in. We had a great bonfire at the fire pit on the beach too. Home is well equipped with everything you'll need and very centrally located. Ferry access is easy, there is a local grocery open nearby and prices were actually pretty good. We took a quick trip back to the mainland too, which was easy and quick -- there is a large Kroger just minutes from the ferry.

Would strongly recommend.

Harsens Island North Channel

  • 5 of 5
We highly recommend this rental. Our family has rented this home for a week each summer for the past several years. It is clean, spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and easily accomodates a large family. We've hosted a one-day family reunion each year with plenty of space for about 20-25 people. The owner is great -- flexible and responsive. It is easy to get there and easy living once you arrive. You can pick up groceries before boarding the ferry -- there is a supermarket very near the dock. There are also a couple of stores on the island where you can buy food and supplies but the selection is limited and the prices can be high. A former school on Harsens Island had been converted to a restaurant and we had a terrific Sunday breakfast there last year.

Bottom line: Harsens Island is a wonderful getaway if you're looking for a place to relax and rejuvenate and this home is an excellent spot to do it. Although Harsens Island is easily accessible from Metro Detroit, it feels like you've left all of life's stresses behind as soon as you board the ferry. Once on the island, you can do as little or as much as you please, be it enjoying the water from a comfortable chair under a shady tree, wandering into the town of Sans Souci or using the house as a base for day trips to Port Huron or other nearby towns. Last year, we took a boat tour from Port Huron into the St. Clair River and up into Lake Huron. But we spent most afternoons at the house watching boaters and wildlife, reading and napping. We're looking forward to another great week this year.

Location

Activity and Interests

Sunning, swimming, relaxing, fishing, boating, shopping, relaxing.

Golf and tennis. Miniature golf, bowling, horseback riding, more

golf, and more shopping nearby.

In hunting season, duck, goose, and deer.

Harsen's Island has no motels or hotels, and very few vacation

rentals, so do not expect a strip of tourist attractions, as the

population is about one third residents, and two thirds seasonal

residents. Do expect a friendly small town attitude, and a safe,

clean, and friendly environment to spend some time with your friends

and family-its plenty close enough to entertain day visitors, and

this

place is large enough to accommodate plenty of overnight guests.

There are three markets and a couple of bar/restaurants on the

island.

It is, for the most part, pretty quiet.

When you wake up in the morning and realize that you have full

control

of your very own spacious, modern, clean, and private vacation home,

you will likely pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming.

Grab a cup of coffee and take a walk down your dock, greeted by the

swans, ducks, and egrets likewise enjoying the calm clear blue waters

of the North Channel of the St. Clair River. Have a seat at the

patio

on the end of the dock, or lie in the in the hammock while you map

out your day.

Join the family for a quick breakfast on the patio, or in the air

conditioned comfort of the summer residence. Take a ride to one of

the markets for a morning paper.

Later, dive into the clear blue waters at the end of the dock for a

refreshing swim. Marvel at the water quality, the sandy bottom,

consider some snorkeling with the kids. Bring a boat? Take a ride

and get lunch at one of the waterfront restaurants. Do some tubing

in

one of the sheltered bays in the Flats.

Grab the fishing poles-pike and panfish off the dock, then use the

fishing boat to take a trip out to the Channel and bounce the bottom

for walleye.

Take a bike ride with the kids to the park, play some tennis, let

them

on the swingsets for a bit, maybe take a ride into town, enjoy some

of

the little shops, check out a book from the library if you cannot

find

anything you like at the house.

Think about dinner-go out or grille something quick?

Later, its roasting marshmallows and having a few cold ones around

the

campfire.

Tomorrow, do it all over again.

Bring: Fishing poles, landing net-pike and panfish off the dock- flip flops sunblock beach towel swim toys marshmallows and sticks hamburgers and buns sunglasses mosquito repellent flashlights bicycles golf clubs mask and flippers beach toys jar for frog turtle and dragonfly camera walking shoes dress clothes for dinner out play clothes not too many we have laundry facilities.
