Fully equipped kitchen, large dining table (great for board games!), cozy living room with fireplace and lake view, The Seadog is a serene little oasis for your 'place on the lake' this summer.
Halfway between Port Huron and Lexington, it's the perfect spot to be a short drive to many fun vacation spots like the Port Huron boardwalk and many parks, or the quaint village of Lexington with it's marina, restaurants, and unique shops. And then you can come back to the cottage and just relax....
Somewhat rustic, (as shown in photos), but this adds to it's nostalgic charm of a time when cards, popcorn, conversation, and then a bonfire under the stars was a "big deal", and a very pleasant break after the city life. Bring a guitar for a sing-a-long, and you'll think you're back at camp.... It's been in our family since 1924, and we hope you'll enjoy it as much as generations of the Jasnowski's have--

The property came into the Jasnowski family (from Detroit) as a gift from Mattie's sister, Ellen Petersen, in 1924, and a little cottage was built, added on to a bit; and a sister cottage, the Nymph, added later on in the 40's. They've been in the family ever since... I think my dad and grandpa would enjoy knowing that others can enjoy the happy, serene, getaway spot that they envisioned. Many people tell us they have a very peaceful time up at our cottages. We hope the Seadog can be your own little 'place on the lake' this summer!
owner/property manager Lisa Boss purchased this cottage in 1924
Uniquely old fashioned, the Seadog is close to Lexington (6 mi), close to Lakeport State Park (4 mi) and close to the gorgeous Port Huron water front and board walk (9 mi). Parks, restaurants, shopping, Canadian casinos, and golf courses are all close by, yet the Seadog Cottage, is always there to return to, and just enjoy relaxing.
A nice place for a quiet vacation, and close to Detroit, Flint, Ann Arbor areas. The property is unique in being able to have 1 cottage all to yourself, or there is the option to also rent the Nymph and have 2 cottages. Perfect for grandparents who may appreciate a little separation for their vacation----- it's what we always do!
We stayed at Sea Dog August 31 thru September 4 2016. We had a nice time at this quaint rustic cottage and it was just what we expected. The property was well maintained and clean upon arrival. The view of the lake is spectacular. Nice private setting. Cottage had all the utensils you need for a comfortable stay. They have great neighbors nice to talk with. Great place for a bonfire on the beach. Nice location between Port Huron and Lexington. The owner Lisa Boss was a great communicator and responsive. We would recommend this property.
Thank you, Joel
We really loved Lisa's house. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for the weekend. Sitting in the screened in sunporch was great, as was using the backyard swings or going down to the private beach. I would recommend her place to anyone, including families with young children — it was a very safe and enjoyable setup. Lisa was very communicative, and the cabin is well situated — private, wooded and quiet area but also very close to downtown Lexington and also only a few minutes' drive from the big grocery store, Barnes and Noble and other shopping. The only critique/warning I have is to be careful around the older/worn outlets. We had a power brick that seemed to burn out from one of those. I would suggest plugging more expensive items (or items you care about) into the newer three-pronged outlets that you can find around the house.
Our family has vacationed here for two years in a row and we love it! The cottage has everything you need without unnecessary extras. We live near Detroit so the drive is just over an hour yet you would think you were in northern Michigan. We've created some great memories here and can't wait to come back.
The Seadog provides a beautiful view of Lake Huron. The swings in the yard provided a wonderful addition to the property to allow for a relaxing time looking at the lake. The house nicely accommodated 6 people, providing the basics needed for a week long stay. The area is quiet and provides for a wonderful family experience. The owner was always available to answer questions before and during our stay. Lexington is a unique town with good restaurant options and a nearby playground and beach for children.
The owner was great to work with and charming. The property was an excellent location with a good beach set up for our kids and cousins to play. The community 4th of July fireworks were fabulous too.
