Peaceful cottage, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cute cottage while attending a family reunion. It is in a very quiet location and within walking distance of the marina and the town of Port Sanilac. The yard has many trees and lots of shade. My favorite part was sitting on the beautiful front porch. The windows are brand new and all of them open to allow summer breezes to pass through. Both bedrooms were comfortable and we were pleasantly surprised to find two bathrooms as I expected most two bedrooms to only have one. There is a full-size shower in one and a bathtub in the other. The kitchen was small but well appointed. The owner (Linda) seems to take great care to make sure you have everything you need. There was even a basket of Keurig coffee to go with the coffee maker. The Wi-Fi was great and the living room has a nice sized TV with cable. Linda was great to deal with. I highly recommend this property.

Port Sanilac Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was clean and comfortable; nice, very large yard; furnishings and appliances a bit dated. Nice front porch. Internet and cell phone service in the area is deplorable - not the owner's fault or anything they can do about it, owners have added wireless internet but service providers are undependable and service is intermittent at best. Street cottage is located on is beautiful for early morning and evening walks; but no public access to the beach which was very disappointing to me; harbor area has a very small unattractive beach area. Very limited activities in the area; this is a nice cottage for a one to two week getaway to relax away from everything.

Owner's Response: You failed to mention what your "service dog" did to our cottage and the mess that required special cleaning after your are no longer welcome at our rental...

This cottage has all of the needed amenities. It is great if you are looking for closeness to the water without a huge price tag. The weather is great there in July, when the heat is just starting to rear it's ugly head in Michigan. The breeze is wonderful!

I personally loved the quaint outdoor inclosed porch. It could be updated a little. The few things that I would change are the door thresholds need repair. The back door screen is a hazard waiting to happen. You could very easily get cut on it. I would inclose the water heater. My granddaughter was fascinated by it and had a hard time distracting her. I would also replace the shower heads. A cheap, but needed upgrade. These are suggestions that are easily and cheaply remedied and I'm sure that if they are, the next stay will be fantastic. I would stay there again!

Owner's Response: All feedback is taken into consideration! The water heater cannot be moved and passes all inspections and current codes. We, as owners, agree that for the money this rental cannot be beat!!

Stayed here for a week in August and LOVED every minute. It is clean, quiet and only short walk to the harbor. The yard is huge and the enclosed porch is wonderful. I would highly recommend this property and plan to visit again.

Even better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. More than a cottage, this is a roomy house with two full bedrooms, two baths, a nice living room, a fully furnished kitchen, a big laundry room and a garage. Best of all is the screened in front porch. The yard is HUGE. Just about everything you could want is within walking distance. The propertery is very well maintained and the owners are very nice and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend.
