Why Tricia Baysdell, Property Manager chose Eastern Michigan

The Perfect location, the perfect beach, sandy shallow waters and more. This small stretch (1/2 Mile) of Port Sanilac Beach area is special for several reasons; it is within walking distance to the Harbor, the beach is walkout, sandy and beautiful. You will not find a better beach within 30 miles of this location. The houses owned on this stretch of beach stay in families generation after generation and it is rare for one to come up for sale in this area. The property was owned by the same family for 60 years. The former matron of the home, Elizabeth, was at one time the General Consulate to Turkey. The house is filled with Turkish Ceramic Tiles and Accents. The fireplace is embossed with hand painted Turkish Tiles in a very unique design. Elizabeth left a full library of books in the upstairs office that we are now just starting to break into that will allow you hours and hours of reading.

What makes this house unique

Swim Spa - Hot Tub combined with an Endless Pool at 4.5 foot deep. KAYAKS and PADDLE BOARDS are included in Rental with 6 Adult Life Jackets and 2 Child Size Life Jackets!! Your family and children will not have a dull moment. Home, Patio and Decks are expansive and comfortable for large families. The home is a true joy to us and hope it will be to your family also. We also stock everything you might need in a home other than than your clothes and food. See our expansive list of items stocked including beach towels, bathroom towels, all paper products, shampoo/conditioner and more.

Just beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 ladies. We had a wonderful time. The house is very roomy. The swim spa was wonderful and the beach is really nice. We had the best weather you could ask for with gorgeous sunrises right there in front of the house.

Memorial Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Every year (more or less), our group of friends rents out a place for Memorial Weekend, and this is one of the best houses we've rented in the last 9 years. Lots of space, chairs and beds. The beach happens to be on a very sandy spot with very few rocks and is clean and spacious. The house was above average-equipped, with a full kitchen, spices and flours, etc, towels, books and games.

The blue decor and tiles were lovely, and made me feel i was vacationing somewhere a little more exotic. Great hot tub and an amazing master suite. I slept so well with the fresh air and sound of waves.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious and accommodating to our large family. It was also wonderfully decorated with Christmas decorations. The view of the lake was absolutely gorgeous. Tricia, the property manager was extremely helpful and polite. The entire family really enjoyed themselves. We are making plans to visit during the summer months. We couldn’t ask for a better Christmas!!!

Wonderful Vacation Rental on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We rented Libby's Cove for an annual family reunion. The house was everything we needed and more. It is a lovely house with plenty of space for everyone to gather - plus options for quiet time, if needed. It has a beautiful courtyard & wonderful patio facing the water! It was a bit cold to swim in October, but we did anyway! The beach and Lake Huron were too much to resist.

The PROS – (there are too many to list!):

- The pictures do not do this house justice. It is a beautiful and well-appointed house - plenty of space for everyone to sleep and vacation comfortably.

- Well-appointed kitchen (including pantry items, dishes, pans, etc.)

- Three full bathrooms & laundry

- Outdoor swim spa

- INCREDIBLY responsive, accommodating, and kind property manager and owners. Wow. Just Wow!

The Cons

- We put our trash in the garage (separate building from the house). It appeared the trash had not been collected recently. Tricia had mentioned this when we arrived and offered to take care of it. It did not affect our stay.

- And it rained a little on one of the days…

Bottom line, this is a great house in a beautiful location with a responsive property manager & owners. Thank you for making our stay at Libby’s Cove so enjoyable! We hope to return soon!

Delightful

Ideal setting directly on beautiful lake Huron beach. Property was well appointed and super cozy for such a large cottage. We loved our weekend here and we created lovely memories.

Beautiful home, amazing location, great time.

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely amazing. We used the house for a work conference and was more than we expected. The house is beautiful and the location was perfect. Julie and Tricia were so helpful with anything we needed. They were available if we needed anything and were always friendly. I would recommend the home to anyone with a large family. The sleeping area, kitchen and living room are more than enough for a large group of people. The jacuzzi was a great feature as well. The view of the lake from the house is breathtaking. We'd love to come back again, thanks for having us.

Libby's cove sits off the M-25 over 1000 feet and several hundred trees. The seclusion allows for worry-free child fun time, bike riding on private drive and seclusion, while allowing for walking and biking distance to our quaint village. Restaurants, shops and Ice Cream scoops in the Harbor will fill your day. We love our Village and it shows!
