My old home growing up as a kid.

  • 5 of 5

This was my home as a kid, my parents bought it in 1959 when I was 2 yrs old and kept it in the family until Mark bought it about 8 years ago. We rented as a family for boat weekend a few years ago and had all the family there. I live 4 miles away and stop by from time to time what new things have been added. Mark takes pride in this home and has added to the second floor bedrooms, built a new great master bath and second floor deck. This home has everything you need for a great family week vacation. Top of the line everything. You will not find a nicer home on the lake for your get away. Just less than a mile to a great mall and lots of food places. If you are lucky enough to rent this home you will never forget the fun times.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house right on the beach. The house had all amenities you could think of. Enough dishes and cooking items so meals out aren't needed. Found everything we needed. Had 20 for dinner one night. Plenty of room.

Owner is easy to work with. Very responsive and very interested in pleasing the renters.

Beautiful location.

In addition to your own private beach there's

a lot to do in Port Huron. With its location on Lake Huron

and near the St. Clair River, there are lots of to see.

Many public beaches and friendly parks, also several nearby marinas are just a few of the outdoor attractions. The twin Blue Water bridges between the United States and Canada are less than two miles away.

Besides beautiful outdoor scenery, Blue water area has a lot to offer when you're off the water. It's beautiful downtown shopping district, the Fort Gratiot mall (1/2 mile from the lakehouse) and many restaurants to choose from are with in 1-2 miles. Also, Just over the Bridge in Canada is the Port Edward Casino and Sarnia Horse track and the famous concert series Bay Fest in July. Enjoy many events in Port Huron and Lexington (15 minutes norhth of Port Huron), including the famous Port Huron to Mackinac Yacht Race and Lexington ART festival. Port Huron also boasts several world-class museums including the Huron Lightship, Port Huron Museum, and the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse.

The best of both worlds located only one hour northeast of Detroit or one hour east of Flint, Port Huron is a great destination to be close to the big city yet enjoy the small town serenity. Both I-94 and I-69 provide easy access to Port Huron.
