About Richard and Stephanie Guyor
Retired teachers, we built the guest house as place to stay while we constructed our larger home next door on our 202 feet of lake MI frontage, renting it to hundreds of appreciative guests since 1974. Every year we have added unique features to the property while also completely restoring, as volunteers, the historic St. Ignatius mission church, 1/2 mi. north on the beach, and keeping it open daily for visitors to discover & enjoy.
Richard and Stephanie Guyor purchased this Cottage in 1969

We had a wonderful stay here! It was the 4th of July week, and we anticipated it being very busy, but we were very pleasantly surprised to find much peace and quiet! It was a full week of amazing sunsets and relaxing days on the beach and enjoying the surrounding small towns. Everything was clean and beautifully maintained. We would absolutely stay here again! Thank you for your hospitality!
Our New Annual Trip to the Beach!
This property is truly amazing! The tiny Aframe house is so romantic and cozy. The beach is just steps from the deck. Dick and Stephanie have appointed it quite well including beach and lounge chairs. They were so welcoming when we arrived. And It's a short drive to downtown Harbor Springs. The beach is one of the best I have vacationed on. Very private and picturesque. We can't wait to go back next year.
We had a 3-night stay in this quaint cottage that I have heard about for some time. Everything you need is provided. The building and grounds are kept immaculate and are unique as well as beautiful. I wasn't too sure about showering outside, but once I had the experience, I loved it! Mr. Guyor was very informative about happenings in the area as well as places to eat. My husband is 6'6" so he did have a bit of a problem sleeping on the futon, however, we did manage to get an air mattress in the room as well so it worked out fine. Thanks Mr & Mrs Guyor for a wonderful visit; would love to see you again.
Perfect place for a couple wanting to enjoy the best of northern Michigan outside. Could not have found a better cozy room for our trip.
Great little spot on the beach
Everything was as good, or better, as advertised, we really enjoyed our stay.
We spent 3 nights. This is an incredible place. Very private and intimate. The guest house was clean. It was warm and the smell of cedar was comforting. A lot of effort and attention to detail has gone into this property. Highly recommended.
