A spacious 3-bedroom home - only your private lawn between you and the water
Sunset Serenity LLC
About Sunset Serenity LLC
We have been vacationing at this property throughout our 40+ years together. No matter where we've lived, we've returned every year to its quiet shore.
Why Sunset Serenity LLC chose Port Austin
Lynn's family, originally from the Detroit area, purchased the neighboring property in 1951 and built the Cottage, also available for periodic rental. In 1980, the House was added as a retirement home for Lynn's parents who have passed on. In 2018, Lynn and her husband Free purchased the property from the family and retained ownership to continue the tradition of quiet family vacations, now offering periodic rental to the lucky few who choose it. "We love this property and know you will too. You can feel its special charm as soon as you step out of the car."
What makes this House unique
This property offers just enough seclusion from the road, and neighbors, and town to truly offer serenity. There's easy access to parks and town, but the peacefulness of the property can't be beat. It's one of the few places on Lake Huron where the sun sets due west, offering sweeping views of spectacular sunsets. Situated close to one of Michigan's few Dark Park Preserves, the night sky is magnificent. Constellations, the milky way, planets, satellites, and shooting stars are common. Even northern lights make an occasional appearance. On clear night you can see the glow of towns across Saginaw. Bay. By day it's an inland sea, great for swimming. A short wooded lane provides privacy from the road. Swimming is steps away as the property shares a boathouse deck and 140 ' of private lakefront with the neighboring cottage, also available by the same owner. The entrance drive serves both properties, with 3 dedicated parking spaces reserved for the House. The top of the small hill is reserved for loading and unloading. The property lies within 5 miles of Port Austin, a quaint town offering a harbor of refuge, kayak rentals with waterway maps to beautiful Turnip Rock, 2 miniature golf courses, a delightful and adequately challenging 18 hole golf course, horseback riding, a destination farmer's market, historic Port Austin Reef Lighthouse, a small local museum, a laundromat, summer and fall family events, as well as unique shops and local eateries. Within 2 miles lies Port Crescent State Park with its sweeping expanse of protected shoreline. The park encompasses the mouth of the Pinnebog River, a popular canoe and kayak destination, miles of sandy beach, hiking trails, a fishing pier on the river, bird viewing platforms, and is one of Michigan's few registered Dark Park Preserves. A Dark Park Preserve is an area preserved to have minimum night lights to allow unusually clear viewing of the night sky. Guests are encouraged to keep lights low.

Little Piece of Heaven!
This house felt like a little piece of heaven on the lake! The house was very clean and had all the essentials to cook and make for a great vacation. The sleeping rooms and house are very spacious and we really liked the open layout in the house with all the lake views. Sitting on the deck looking at the lake was so peaceful and we had so much fun playing pool in the basement. The beach by the lake was so sandy - perfect for the kids who could swim and play in the shallow water. We didn't even need water shoes and could relax and play on our floaties. This place is a little piece of heaven!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful lake house! The views are gorgeous! Love the sunset view from the boat house and the porch. The property is cozy and private with a great beach front. There were some great attractions in the area as well. Lighthouse museum, grindstone icecream, horseback riding, mini golf, canoeing and a state park right up the road. We will absolutely be back!
