About Helen Hierta

I am a writer, ceramic artist, and mother of four children.

Why Helen Hierta chose Greenbush

This property has been in my family for over 30 years. It was originally run as a vacation resort "Cherokee Trails" by my stepdad, a Detroit auto designer, who purchased the property as an adult; he had great memories of vacationing here as a child. Over the years a portion of the property was sold, and the original guest cottages were combined into a single structure. When the opportunity arose to reunite the property we took advantage and, as they say, the rest is history.

What makes this house unique

The sky is always changing, the water reflects the moods of the seasons, and the shoreline goes from drama to calm within hours. It's never boring. There is a natural ecosystem on our beach. Last summer we had a kildeer nest. Deer, fox, pileated woodpeckers, heron, owls, eagles ... it's perfect here.

Quiet, relaxing, clean, beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

This rental was perfect for our needs. It was spacious for our morning yoga, quiet for meditation and reading, walks on the beach. We had easy access by way of a short drive to Huron National Forest for hiking and canoeing the Au Sable River. Our bed looked out to Lake Huron for the beautiful sun rise and a spectacular moon rise over Lake Huron.
