Enjoy a Quiet Beach Retreat in North Eastern Michigan.
Lake Huron Beach House is located 5 Miles North of Harrisville, and just North of the Sturgeon Point Lighthouse. Pristine sand beach and water clarity. No Rocks! The Huron Beach House is a contemporary styled saltbox nestled in the trees and natural surroundings and many great views of the lake.
* Please note that due to increasingly high water, beach walks are more difficult on Lake Huron. We wear shoes to stay on the beach, or swimsuits to wade around obstacles.
The master bedroom on the main floor, with TV, has a patio door view of the lake and an adjacent full bath. 2 bedrooms on the upper level with 3/4 bath between include 1 queen size bed on the lakeside with a wonderful view of the lake and the other bedroom has two extra long twin beds which can be combined to make one king bed. Fully equipped kitchen includes range, fridge, built-in dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and other small appliances. Washer & dryer are also available.
The open living room and dining room has gas fireplace, vaulted ceiling and more lake views. Flat screen TV with DISH Network and Internet. Large deck on the lakeside and winding boardwalk to the beach.
Beach area has lounge chairs, fire pit, picnic table with umbrella, hammock, child's swing and two kayaks for your use. Altogether, a touch of paradise.
This home was on VRBO (affiliate) for several years. Our reviews were excellent there, and not carried over by HomeAway. The following reviews are from our previous VRBO listing, and from our Guestbook:

Peaceful Retreat Location.
We had a quiet, peaceful, incredible time of relaxation and just plain chillin'. It was just what we needed to be re-energized. Everything we needed was there making the stay one need for running. Would recommend this for anyone seeking a retreat setting.

A Cherished Paradise
This place is truly a hidden treasure! Few places are left in the world where one can find quiet and mostly empty stretches of a sandy shore. Tucked into the trees, this cottage provides privacy, yet with an upfront view of the ever-changing lake. We loved listening to the waves crashing on the shore every night and watching the sun rise each morning without even getting out of bed! We enjoyed both bike riding via road as well as beach walking the easy 2 mile stretch the historic Sturgeon Point Lighthouse. Tennis courts a few miles into town, song singing at the campfire under the full moon, body surfing the waves that came up one windy day, and most of all, enjoying a quiet paradise on the shore of a beautiful fresh water sea. The cottage itself was a delight, very well maintained and a very comfortable atmosphere to spend inside when tired of the beach. Wouldn't mind a cozy fall or spring time stay either, with the indoor fireplace and sky lights, it sure makes a great place for the variety of weather that Michigan has to offer! Though there was no internet, it was a good reminder to spend quality time together and less on Facebook or e-mail!! This will always be a cherished place in our memory, and we hope to return frequently in the future.

Best weekend Ever at the Beach House
Very cute, and clean home. The outside deck and walkway were so nice and of course "Lake Huron" in the backyard was amazing.
