Harsens Island house description

Harsens Island is located on the north side of Lake St. Clair about an hour from Downtown Detroit. It is sometimes called the Venice of America because of its many canals and channels. You take a ferry to the island which runs year-round, 24 hours per day.

Enjoy nature at its best on this island paradise with its unique history and hidden secrets. See its wildlife, fish its waters, explore its canals, visit museums, major casinos, or just relax and enjoy life on this island retreat which is one of the best kept secrets in Michigan at an unbeatable price. The island provides an unique setting to enjoy everything life offers including world renowned duck hunting in season.

The house is located on a peninsula with a wrap around deck, private beach, boats wells, water views, and dramatic sunsets. If you want more information or pictures call or e-mail.

We feel and have been told by many of our renters that our house has the best location, views
and is the best value of all the rentals on Harsens Island.
