Overview

About the property

Waterfront -- Four Bedrooms With Freighters On The River

Lovely four bedroom home right on the shipping channel within easy walking distance to the village of Sans Souci. One and 1/2 baths. City water. This home is in the 1920's Arts and Crafts style and is warm and inviting. Fishing right off the dock. Tie your boat up to the dock if you need to drop someone off or pick someone up. There are local marinas such as Sunset Marina to keep your larger boats safe from the wave action caused by freighters. Watch the freighters go by day and night from the enclosed porch on the porch swing. There is a formal dining room, washer and dryer, and over 40 windows to enjoy the view. Although there is no air conditioning, the cottage is on the St. Clair river and is naturally cool due to the breeze off the water. Two night minimum stay.

Breath of fresh air

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location on the channel. Bar and party store right down the street. Good fishing from the dock and hunting right around the corner at Harsen's Island Wildlife Area. Stayed during late October and had an awesome time.

So Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice to get away. Couldn't have had a nicer view. We went with another couple and had lots of room to spread out. Spent most of our time on the front porch watching the world pass on by. The house was well stock. I don't believe there was anything we needed that wasn't already there. Paul is very accommodating and easy to work with!

Comfortable home with awesome view

  • 4 of 5

Working on Harsens Island in June and September and needed a place to stay that could house four crew each trip. Of the six folks that ended up staying at the house over the two trips, the vote was unanimous, loved it. It's an older home with squeaks and creaks but it has great character, comfortable and clean, short walking distance to the Sans Souci Market, Sans Souci Bar & Grill, and museum. The owner provided an excellent primer to the house and area. As an extra bonus, a comfortable and spacious three season porch or front yard provide a great place to start the day with coffee or relax at the end of the day, watching the freighters pass. We plan to stay here again for future trips next year and maybe a vacation some day.

Another Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Paul's wonderful cottage for our annual Mother/Daughters trip. We love the beautiful house, the wonderful location, and the relaxing front "viewing room" where we enjoy the porch swing and watch the freighters go by. Every year we notice added touches such as the Weber grill this year. We are already excited to go back next year. Thank you Paul for another memorable stay!!
