Why Alan & Lori Sanborn chose Lexington

We recently purchased our dream cottage a few years ahead of schedule. We love the beauty of the area and have felt drawn to the water. Lake Huron's whispering voice and beautiful sunrises are very fulfilling. There's more peace and quiet during the winter, while summertime is full of adventure and fun. We believe the Heights to be the best community within miles.

Perfect place to escape the busy-ness and cares of day to day life!!

  • 4 of 5

3 Sr. Ladies needing some time away to regroup after a stressful year! The Lake House was comfortable, with some newly remodled items and a FIREPLACE to sit by as we watched the sunrise on the Lake and freighters pass by. It was exactly what we needed and hope to return another ANY season it would be beautiful!! I would suggest taking your own linen for the beds. Thanks Lori! You are a gracious and prompt in answering questions.

Comfortable with a great view

  • 4 of 5

Grandma's Lake House is accurately described. Although not modern, it has what we needed. The house was right sized for our visit, with different rooms to congregate in depending on the time of day/weather. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen functional and big enough (watch the lid on the coffee pot :) ). The view of and proximity to Lake Huron was why we picked this property, and we were not disappointed.

Our week by the water

  • 4 of 5

It is a beautiful place the view from the front window across the lake is so relaxing, even while sitting in the living room to be able to see out over the water and to watch the sunrise was great. The evening walks through the quaint neighborhood was wonderful.

Grandma's lake house

  • 3 of 5

It is truly Grandma's house. Doesn't have all the conveniences but very homey and friendly. The view is a million dollar View

Great location, awesome easy access to the beach, great communication with owners!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in 'Grandma's Lake house'. Lori was awesome to deal with and super responsive when we had questions. The house was comfortable, nothing fancy, but we were traveling with kids who were most interested in the beach anyway! Our favorite part was walking just outside the door and down a slight hill to our own private (so it seemed) beach. Our biggest complaint was upstairs and the bedrooms were quite hot during our stay. The single window AC unit downstairs did a nice job on the main living space downstairs but the rooms were all a little toasty. Overall a great visit and we'd stay there again!

Owner's Response: Eileen was a great tenant and I will take her advice and install a window air conditioner for upstairs. We had just put in ceiling fans, but apparently this is not enough. I thank her for bringing my attention to it
