vacation rental description

Very private, comfortable, large second home, totally renovated

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...

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
for walleye.
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.

traveler reviews for this harsens island house rental

Fantastic place

Review submitted: August 25, 2014   Date of arrival: August 21, 2014

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.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners 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

Review submitted: August 7, 2012   Date of arrival: July 20, 2012

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.

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.
