About Carol Ewing
Pete and I bought the cottage and land that is contiguous to our home and other property in 2007 and did extensive renovations to make it a super comfy and relaxing retreat. Originally planned as over-flow lodging for our family and friends, we realized that the guest house was truly a unique place, that we were blessed to be the stewards of this land and that we wanted to share it with others. And ta-da ...Heron Pointe was established and opened for business in 2009! Since then we have continually added and upgraded the property and its amenities. We invite you to check us out! It would be our honor and pleasure to have you as our guests.

This place is a 10 out of 10 for everything. Right down to extra pillows, blankets, towels. Carol goes the extra mile to ensure you have everything you need. It's the most welcoming place we've stayed in in all 10 years of renting. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous and interesting. The trails and pond are not to be missed but all of this is in easy driving distance to shops and restaurants. Checkout is easy and stress free and Carol is a perfect host!
My Home Away from Home
We're Back....... Thank you Carol! So Happy the cottage was available for us to stay for Thanksgiving while we visited nearby family. As soon as I walked in the door I felt I was home again. We love it! My kids went right to the same bedroom they had the last time we stayed and immediately unpacked and moved in. We truly feel like we have a second home up north. It is as beautiful in the colder months with a bit of snow as it is in the summer. We cant wait to return again.
Dear Kelly, it is always wonderful to have you and your family as our guests! You are welcome back anytime. All best wishes for wonderful holidays. Fondly, Carol & Pete
Excellent hospitality ! Carol treated us like family ... we will definitely make plans to return !
We were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival to see University of Michigan graduation balloons outside in the yard , champagne in the house with a welcome note, and "Go Blue" decorations thoughout the house.! After a long drive from Delaware to attend & celebrate our son graduation, this special welcome added more excitement !! Carol treated us like family & made our stay so comfortable. We enjoyed the peaceful environment , beautiful home & outdoor surroundings. We took several pictures of wildlife animals & birds, and truly enjoyed the lake fishing ..this was one of the best get aways ever!!!

Dear Sheila and Bill, it was such a joy to have your lovely family and your smart son as our guests!! While we always try to be as perfect as possible, you have inspired us to "aim" even "higher!" All best wishes, ~ Carol & Pete
Outstanding, Carol is the best!! Great attention to detail
My best VRBO experience so far. Beautiful property, all the details for your comfort
The grounds and landscaping were beautifully designed, the lake, the small bridge over the water leading to the nature path. We had a wonderful stay here. We would definitely come back again!!
What a wonderful place Heron Pointe is! We cannot say enough good things about it. From the moment you arrive you feel special & very much at home. The guest house is charming, beautifully decorated and well prepared for guest. Not to mention the awesome grounds with an up north feel plus beautiful flowers and an amazing garden. The location is perfect, close to shopping and multiple parks for walking, biking or enjoying a picnic. Heron Pointe is the perfect oasis for anyone looking for a special place to stay. Your host Carol & Pete are there to take care of any needs you have and soon feel like special friends. We love that place!
Heron Pointe - Home away from Home
Carol and Peter have done a wonderful job of creating a guest house that feels like "Home". My wife and I rented for a month while visiting friends and family in Michigan. Heron Pointe has everything you would expect in a vacation home plus many things/features you would not. We were exceptionally comfortable during our stay, and in fact have reserved Heron Pointe again next July.
Enjoy all the fun of an 'up north' vacation without the drive or the hassles. Located about 45 minutes (or less) from downtown Detroit, Metro Airport, Ann Arbor, Flint/Saginaw (just a little farther to East Lansing!) or just about any metro Detroit suburb, Heron Pointe Guest House offers you total privacy in a luxurious natural setting.
A great rental for football weekends for Michigan State or U of M Big House games!
Elegant shopping at The Somerset Collection and Twelve Oaks Mall. Great outlet shopping too in Brighton or Birch Run.
Other Detroit attractions include the Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village, the Motown Museum, The incomparable Detroit Institute of Arts, MGM Grand, Motor City and Greektown Casinos, The Detroit Science Center, The Charles Wright Museum of African American Art and the Detroit Historical Museum.
We're located in White Lake, Michigan on 7 wooded acres complete with a 2 acre pond, 2 waterfalls and all the nature you can handle! Unlike a B & B where you simply get a room, at Heron Pointe Guest House, you'll have the full run of the property...all to yourself!
We're also less than five minutes from Alpine Valley Ski Resort, two all-sports lakes (with beach and boating privileges)and the Highland State Recreation Area. Shopping, golf, quaint towns and fine dining are also close by. Heron Pointe offers a nice balance between fun things to do and the opportunity just to cozy up and relax in an immaculate, comfortable home away from home.
