Space 825 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Heritage, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6. Beautiful view, peaceful and relaxing.

Right on the lake! Heritage cottage, 825 sq. ft. Beautiful lake views, inside and out. Old-fashioned warmth and charm, located in a quiet lakefront neighborhood. Private 50' beach is a small but beautiful window onto majestic Lake Huron.

Located right on the lake, at the end of a long private driveway, with a woody area in between, (lot is 50' wide and 480' long), you're buffered from any road noise, and can just absorb the sound of the waves and the occasional foghorn from the freighters.

Sleeps 6, with 2 bedrooms, (1 w/queen, other w/full, and twin bunks on porch) 1 bath, kitchen, dining, living room with fireplace, and large screened porch facing the lake.

Brick patio with charcoal BBQ, wood swings and lots of plastic Adirondack chairs, make for a lovely place to grill and sit outside. 10 steps down to our lakeside firepit and patios, and then 10 steps and you're right on the beach.

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--

We provide linens (sheets), and 6 bath towels, and initial Starter Supply of basic paper items-- you may need to buy more. (See instructions or call for complete info). 6 person limit, 3 car limit, no fireworks, loud parties, RV's, tents, or trailers. Sorry, but no pets.

Phone us for more info or photos at 616-669-5187 anytime between 8am--10pm . We have a 3-night minimum.

Our golden "rule" is to enjoy yourselves! ! To respect our wonderful neighbors, and to leave the cottage "as you found it". We have professional cleaners come in before and after every stay, but basic "tidying up" is expected of guests. No comment or question is too small---- we love guests to contact us before or during a vacation about anything at all !

About owner/property manager Lisa Boss

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 there. Our lakefront cottage has been shared with a wonderful group of renters for over 20 years now (before the internet!) and we still love the "old-fashioned" feel, (and ok, we can't afford a total renovation either), so that is the niche we fulfill. We hope the Seadog can be your own little 'place on the lake' this summer!

Why owner/property manager Lisa Boss chose Eastern Michigan

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 (10 mi). Parks, boat rentals, restaurants, shopping, vineyards, U-Pick, Canadian casinos, and golf courses are all close by, yet the Seadog Cottage, is always there to return to, and just enjoy relaxing.

What makes this cottage unique

A nice place for a quiet vacation, and close to Detroit, Flint, Ann Arbor areas. I've been trying to hang on to this little piece of property for the feeling it provides of simple, old time pleasures, like being able to look out over such a beautiful stretch of the great lakes.

Perfect spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights and had an amazing time! The cottage was clean, comfortable, and stocked with everything we needed. We made one trip to the grocery store for a few things and cooked several delicious meals! The kids had a good time looking for cool rocks, and the adults had a good time enjoying the porch and swings, watching the waves. It was a little too windy for a bonfire, but we enjoyed the view. We were close to several good places to grab food if we didn't want to cook, and all of the activities we planned (fishing, mini-golf, bowling, sight-seeing) were all within a short distance from the property. We really enjoyed our time here and can't wait to visit again!

Perfect Location in Lexington

  • 5 of 5

What a charming cottage! The cottage was clean, had absolutely everything we needed in the kitchen, bedrooms, bath, etc. Cozy screened in porch with a full view of the lake and the swings in the yard were such a sweet touch. Felt very much like going to Grandma's house. Definitely plan to book again.

Wonderful cottage with views to match!

  • 5 of 5

We loved loved loved our stay at the Seadog! The cottage sure is charming with a fantastic sunroom. We stayed here early in the summer and although we had plenty of warm sunshine to enjoy on the beach (and the crazy kids swam in the cold lake several times a day) but we did have thunderstorms at some point every day and the sunroom was our hangout spot.

We had such a relaxing and fun time, we will definitely be back!

Great experience. The owners were welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. We had the best time with our family. Our granddaughter won't stop talking about it. Thanks for the memories.

Car: recommended

Halfway between Lexington to the north, (6 mi)m and Port Huron to the south (10 mi), the area has lots of beachfront parks (esp. Lake Port State Park, 4 mi to the south), marinas, and golf courses. Lexington is a welcoming resort town offering free music in the park during the summer, restaurants, coffee shops, craft fairs, festivals, kayak rentals, live theater, and a beautiful marina.

Port Huron, home of the double Blue Water Bridge to Canada, houses many opportunities for fun trips too. There's Lighthouse Park, the amazing boardwalk along the St. Clair River running under the bridge, (the boardwalk is my main CAN'T MISS trip---- just to experience the freighters going through the channel as you walk along).
