LAKE ESAU, PRESQUE ISLE HARBOR AREA. PRIVATE COMMUNITY.

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Presque Isle - Lake front Chalet

Chalet style cottage, 3 bedroom,2 bath, loft master suit

A family owned cottage on the west shore of Lake Esau in the private community of Presque Isle Harbor. Very quiet and private setting. Miles of private paved roads, very little traffic. Private beaches on lake Huron and Grand Lake.

The cottage is set back 300 feet from our private paved access road and 40 feet from the lake front. There is lawn on all sides - woods in the back providing privacy. A year round residence on one side and a heavily wooded vacant lot that we own on the other.

Lake Esau is 750 acre all sports lake with 1/2 mile of protected un-developed shoreline and private cottages.

You can relax on the 12x30 covered porch or sit in a chair on the lawn and enjoy a great view of the Lake.

The interior of the cottage is bright and airy with large windows in the front and a great view of the lake. A bay window dinning area overlooks the lake.

Enjoy a camp fire in the outdoor fire pit. Fish from the 40 foot dock. Launch your own boat from our private ramp on the east shore of the lake. Dock your boat up to a 24 ft.in length. A canoe and 12 Ft. fishing boat are provided..

The water is crystal clear - great swimming. The depth increases gradually - good for children. The lake bottom is a mixture of smooth stone, fine gravel and sand. The bottom is clean - no weeds or muck. Good bass fishing from our dock. Boat traffic is Light. A Swimming raft is anchored just offshore.

There are two private Sandy Beaches at Presque Isle Harbor Marina and Grand Lake - both within the assocation boundaries. Boat Lauches on our lake,Grand Lake and Lake Huron.

Enjoy over 3000 acres of private association land with quiet paved roads and miles of nature trails thru the woods or along the lake shores. This area is ideal for cycling, hiking, walking or jogging. Take a drive at dusk to see wild Turkey and Deer. Canoe around the lake at dawn or dusk for good wildlife viewing - which includes many Waterfowl Species. Search for fossils on the lake Huron shore.

It's a 5 minute drive to the Public Library, Post Office and General Store in the village of Presque Isle.

Drive just 3 miles or ride your bikes on the paved bike path to Presque Isle Harbor Marina complex on Lake Huron - the only natural harbor on the west shore of the lake. There you will find the DNR sheltered boat harbor, the Portage Restaurant, the new and 'old' Lighthouse Parks, pizza shop, general store, Great Lakes Museum, gift shops, ice cream,fishing charters and a free Lake Huron boat launch with paved trailer parking.

It's a 20 minute drive to major shopping and Golf in Rogers City or Alpena. 90 MINUTES TO MACKINAW CITY AND ISLAND FERRYS.

No smoking is allowed inside the cottage or on the porch. Renters must be at least 25 years of age.

RESTFUL RETREAT

  • 5 out of 5
The Presque Isle cottage is the perfect place to rest and relax; my husband and I and our two children (20 & 24) did just that! We were initially concerned that the cottage itself did not have WiFi and the cell phone service was spotty, but being less connected to work was a blessing. We spent our days with a good book, taking leisurely boat rides and bicycle rides -with lots of trails to explore. We were only 25 minutes to Alpena but we only made the trip twice. We found a fun antique store right next to the yummy Cabin Creek Coffee place on Second Ave and we found the best fresh meat counter at Perch’s IGA. We purchased their homemade jalapeno and cheddar brats and their stuffed mushroom and Swiss burgers…sooo delicious! The cabin’s covered wrap-around deck was an added bonus for grilling and dining and could be used rain or shine. The cottage is clean and comfortable with great views. The cottage fit the four of us well, the kids each had their own room and my husband and I enjoyed the loft bedroom with the lovely new master bath. The clubhouse is a beautiful facility, although we were content to just hang back at the cottage. We did however, put our boat in at Grand Lake one afternoon. Like Lake Esau, it is clear and picturesque, but “Grand” in size. We had a wonderful week at the Presque Isle cottage. Thank you John for being so helpful in meeting all of our needs and for sharing your restful retreat!

Peaceful stay

  • 4 out of 5
I was really surprised at how quiet and relaxing it was at this lakefront cottage. The lake is beautiful; crystal clear and very little vegetation. The kids enjoyed seeing the wildlife in the area: turkeys, deer - we even stumbled upon a turtle! The clubhouse is awesome and convenient. My wife used the WiFi nearly everyday for work and the kids liked hanging out in the gym. We also enjoyed the relatively short drive into Alpena and up to Rogers City. Be sure to check out the Besser Museum's taxidermy-filled basement! And take the kids to Stoney Acres Winery for a tasting of all their different sodas (while you try the blackberry wine!).

Wonderful

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I, along with our two boys, had a wonderful time. We were able to bring our dog, and he loved being outside there too. The cottage was cute and very clean. The lake was beautiful and very clear, and perfect for swimming. The beaches available for use on lake Huron offered more beautiful clear water and soft sandy beaches. We enjoyed the community of Presque Isle and even toured the lighthouses. The Portage restaurant had great food as well. Macinac Island is only 1 1/2 hours away, so we were able to make a trip up there too. We would definitely recommend this cottage to others and would love to make it back up there again :)
