About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 6)

A spectacular sunset awaits, with Lake Michigan sparkling at your feet!

This 100 year-old home has been meticulously restored, offering all modern amenities while retaining the original charm and warmth of bygone Island days. There is beautiful woodwork throughout the home and a huge verandah with a vintage porch swing waiting for you to relax and enjoy the amazing sunsets! Or if you prefer, you can unwind in the three season porch overlooking the water. There is a gas grill for your grilling enjoyment. Paddle leisurely across Detroit Harbor in your canoe or cast a line for the catch of the day and enjoy it on the grill. Swim in the crystal clear water and never have to worry about the children as there are no drop-offs, just a sandy gradual approach.

Our lakeshore home offers two upstairs bedrooms with king beds and one queen sofa sleeper in the living room. There is a full bath upstairs and a 1/2 bath on the main floor.

Snuggle up with a loved one or enjoy your favorite book relaxing by the fireplace in the living room with views of the harbor. A spacious dining room and kitchen complete the home. We offer satellite TV in the living room and both bedrooms.

There is a large yard for sunbathing or playing with your family.

We do not have internet at the home, but you are welcome to use our free WIFI at the golf course or there are computers and internet at the library.

This will truly be the most relaxing vacation you can experience!

We also own the Deer Run Golf Course on Washington Island, so brings your clubs as all our guests receive special discounts.

Fabulous Vacation and Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent several nights at this lake shore home and only have great things to say about it. The home itself is very close to the water and we enjoyed sitting outside watching the waves, the wildlife, and the spectacular sunsets. Inside, the home is beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The gas fireplace was an extra bonus for some cool evenings. We were so relaxed and rejuvenated by the end of our stay. We will definitely be making this our yearly vacation spot.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time to the Island and we have fallen in love with it.

We didn't know what to expect and have to say we couldn't have been happier.

The home is meticulously remodeled and perfectly clean.

We just wanted to have a quite getaway and this spot was perfect. We sat on the porch swing and watched the gorgeous sunsets over the water. Even on a rainy day we enjoyed ourselves snuggled on the couch, watching movies with a fire burning in front of us.

Trudy was very helpful with sightseeing and dinner options.

The beds were kings and very cozy with a great view of the water.

Washington Island is very laid back, with lots of wildlife. We enjoyed hiking on Rock Island and going to the various museums.

We will definitely be back.
