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.

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!!

We are returning to this VRBO again this summer. It has been another wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room. Comfortable amenities included. Cleaning and linens included. Cooking and clean up easy in the roomy kitchen and dining room areas. We did miss the porch swing, it would add back a bit more comfort to this main gathering space. We always gathered on the inclosed porch to watch ships passing, South Channel beauty and all the activities on the water. Maybe some wicker furniture would really add this fantastic space.

We are already contemplating a visit next summer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The porch swing is fixed and back in place. Unfortunately there were some guests that did some damage before your arrival, but everything has been fixed.

Perfect spot on the channel

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Don't know how many hours we spent sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee and a book watching the freighters go by. Get the FindShip app for your phone. Shows the ships in the channel and their statistics. House had everything we needed for a week stay. Walking distance to Sans Souci Bar and Sans Souci Market. Market has great pizza! As another reviewer mentioned, while the house does not have A/C nights by the channel are generally cool and comfortable. It was never a problem.
