1 Master Suite, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4. Perfect Couples Getaway or Small Group

Perched high on the East shore of Halfmoon Lake in the heart of the Pickney recreation area, Harper's Guest House is the perfect getaway for those looking to explore the many lakes, woods, trails and nature this area has to offer. The cottage sits within 1/8 mile of Halfmoon State Park, offering a beautiful swimming beach and boat launch.

The Waterloo/Pinckney recreation areas encompasses thousands of acres of pristine forest land and many trails open to the public including the Potawatomi Trail and the Waterloo–Pinckney Trail. Trails pass through oak and pine forests, swamps and open meadows. The trails offer some of the best hiking, cross country skiing, mountain biking and hunting in the State of Michigan.

Enjoy the beautiful lake sunsets as you relax on the patio or enjoy a warm campfire or hot tub as you gaze at the stars. Visit a local pub or explore the City of Ann Arbor just 25 miles to the Southeast. The towns of Chelsea, Dexter and Pinckney are all within 15 minutes.

This property is the perfect couples get-a-way. Peaceful, relaxing and quiet. Cottage includes free Wi-Fi, flat screen cable TV, full size kitchen with dishwasher and ice maker. Master suite has a quality Queen size bed and a private bath entrance. Additional sleeping space provided in the pull out bed in couch.

Access to the lake is through the State Park, overnight docking of your personal boat is not available. The cottage has plenty of parking to accommodate your boat/trailer and the State boat launch is in sight of the property. For a lakefront cottage with a private dock and boat parking, check out our sister property on this same chain of lakes (Homeaway #3929327)

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cozy little cottage by the lake. Lots of amenities. The place is very well cared for, super clean and the owner is very friendly and helpful. Nice remote location away from the big city. Lots to do in the area, trails, metro parks and right by half moon lake. Highly recommended. Good places to eat in nearby Pinckney and Chelsea.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

As we visited the lake house in March, it was chilly outside but warm and cozy inside. Thank you for a well equipped and clean cottage. The hot tub was wonderful. The views from the porch were picturesque. We are looking forward to visiting again.

Cozy Modern Lake House

Lovely vaulted ceilings, nicely furnished, friendly neighbors. It was very easy to get in and out of the cabin with the electronic locks. The hot tub had a great view of the lake!

Great weekend trip

Could have used a little more hot water :) but other than that the lake house had everything we could need for a weekend away.

Thousands of acres of State land surrounding a chain of 7 lakes. Because so much of the land around the lakes is owned by the State, the lakes are much less developed than most other lakes in southern Michigan. Wildlife abounds and some of the natural scenery rivals the beautiful lakes of northern Michigan. Come see for yourself, you'll be glad you did.
