About the Property
3 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 5
Relax and unwind in this charming totally renovated 40's style cottage on 7 secluded wooded acres. Stroll the grounds, try a cast or two from the bridge overlooking our peaceful private stocked pond...or take a serene walk through the woods to 3 flowing waterfalls. You might even catch a glimpse of our steathy blue heron.
Luxuriously comfortable furnishings, a wood burning stove, and a nicely appointed kitchen create a welcome retreat to let the cares of everyday life melt away.
Sun or have coffee on the back deck in total privacy with just the squirrels and the songbirds to keep you company. After sunset, star gaze with the one you love or cozy up to the fire pit ...it's all here for you to enjoy!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Enjoy all the fun of an 'up north' vacation without the drive or the hassles. Located about 45 minutes (or less) from downtown Detroit, Metro Airport, Ann Arbor, Flint/Saginaw (just a little farther to East Lansing!) or just about any metro Detroit suburb, Heron Pointe Guest House offers you total privacy in a luxurious natural setting.
A great rental for football weekends for Michigan State or U of M Big House games!
Elegant shopping at The Somerset Collection and Twelve Oaks Mall. Great outlet shopping too in Brighton or Birch Run.
Other Detroit attractions include the Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village, the Motown Museum, The incomparable Detroit Institute of Arts, MGM Grand, Motor City and Greektown Casinos, The Detroit Science Center, The Charles Wright Museum of African American Art and the Detroit Historical Museum.
We're located in White Lake, Michigan on 7 wooded acres complete with a 2 acre pond, 2 waterfalls and all the nature you can handle! Unlike a B & B where you simply get a room, at Heron Pointe Guest House, you'll have the full run of the property...all to yourself!
We're also less than five minutes from Alpine Valley Ski Resort, two all-sports lakes (with beach and boating privileges)and the Highland State Recreation Area. Shopping, golf, quaint towns and fine dining are also close by. Heron Pointe offers a nice balance between fun things to do and the opportunity just to cozy up and relax in an immaculate, comfortable home away from home.
Year Purchased: 2007
About: Pete and I bought the cottage and land that is contiguous to our home and other property in 2007 and did extensive renovations to make it a super comfy and relaxing retreat. Originally planned as over-flow lodging for our family and friends, we realized that the guest house was truly a unique place, that we were blessed to be the stewards of this land and that we wanted to share it with others. And ta-da ...Heron Pointe was established and opened for business in 2009!
The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
With about 7 1/2 acres of woods, gardens, lawn, wetlands, meadow lands, a huge organic garden open to our guests and the pond, Heron Pointe offers a bio-diverse and super private natural setting that offers luxury, comfort, restorative sanctuary and fun!
