Our vacation home is located in a quiet area of Northeastern Michigan in the Presque Isle Harbor Association. The close proximity to refreshing Lake Huron, historic Presque Isle lighthouses and beautiful Michigan State Parks make this home a true getaway. The home is nicely decorated, has a furnace but no air conditioning, and plenty of parking.
This salt-box style house has three bedrooms, one is on the main floor, the other two are upstairs. Two bedrooms have queen beds and one a full-size bed. There is a small kitchen with a cooktop (no oven), dining area and living room with sofa and loveseat. There is a nice deck off the back of the house with outdoor seating, wood fireplace, two bathrooms and a laundry room. We also added a propane grill on the deck in 2018.
The Presque Isle Harbor, Grand Lake and Long Lake marinas and boat launches allow access to a wide variety of water related activities. The home is also about 30 minutes from Alpena or Rogers City, which provides access to all modern amenities, shopping, museums, historic sites and state parks. This side of the state has dedicated light free zones at night and is fantastic for star gazing and exploring natural state parks.
The home is also an hour and a half from Mackinac Island, is very close to the Presque Isle Wooden Boat Show in the summer and other exciting northern Michigan activities. There is no internet, TV or cellular service available at this home. However, a ten minute walk or five minute drive to the marina will give you access to cell service, and a general store and restaurant during the summer season.
The home features hair dryers, some board games, puzzles and most kitchen accessories (like a coffee pot). The views are fairly secluded; and you're likely to see small wildlife like birds, squirrels and rabbits, and occasionally deer and other animals. The area is very quiet in the evening, and is fantastic for bicycle riding, walking and all outdoor activities.
*Please note many businesses are closed in the winter, and renters are not allowed access to the Association Clubhouse or amenities.
