A little piece of Heaven
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
The Baker Family
Would strongly recommend.
Harsens Island North Channel
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.
From the Owner
“The newest, biggest, on the largest lot, with exceptionally unique water frontage. Privacy, amenities, all you need for a great get away.”
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
place is large enough to accommodate plenty of overnight guests.
There are three markets and a couple of bar/restaurants on the
It is, for the most part, pretty quiet.
When you wake up in the morning and realize that you have full
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
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
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
Take a bike ride with the kids to the park, play some tennis, let
on the swingsets for a bit, maybe take a ride into town, enjoy some
the little shops, check out a book from the library if you cannot
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
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.
