About Joy or Julia
We purchased this cottage in 2010 and loved it so much that we bought a house two doors down and moved here permanently.
Joy or Julia purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Joy or Julia chose Fort Gratiot Township
We really feel that this is one of the best kept secrets in MI. Lake Huron is amazing providing us with beauty, petosky stones, beach glass, boats, freighters, sunrises, kayaking, standup paddling, snorkeling, sand and sun! Yet, we are conveniently located to shopping, restaurants, casinos, antiquing, etc. Detroit is an hour away which offers a major airport, sporting events and more.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are conveniently located near a state park, trails, and cute lake towns like Lexington. The 'Sunrise Side' of Michigan is really it's best kept secret!

A-1 stay in Ft. Gratiot, the only thing better than the lake was our hosts J&J. Thanks, we all had a great time.
Hey Dennis! Thanks for the great review! It was really awesome meeting you and the fam! It was so cool running into you on the trails and beach. Thanks for leaving the cabin so pristine as well! We hope to have you's back!
5 years running at this great place.
So great we have returned for 5 years in a row. Everything you could need is provided~ just bring swimsuit and beach shoes. Perfect set-up for 2 teenage granddaughters who joined us; their own private space above garage in bonus room. We just love this sanctuary!
Debbie you and Bob are just the best! It was awesome meeting your beautiful granddaughters too! The very best was our lunch though as I so enjoyed spending time with you!
Joy & Julia were wonderful and welcoming! The cottage was perfect for our girls weekend getaway! It was a perfect place for some R & R! Would definitely recommend a visit!
Thank you for your great review Heather! It was great meeting you's and we hope to have you back!
Best vacation ever !!!
We had a fabulous week! The cottage is absolutely charming, clean and inviting. The owners Joy and Julia are truly wonderful hosts. We've stayed at many homes/cottages over the years, this was hands down the best! If that's not enough, beautiful Lake Huron is just a stones throw
from the front porch. You simply can't beat it, it really is the best kept secret on Lake Huron.
We absolutely loved having you and Joe as guests and now friends! Can't wait to see you's again!
Home away from home
Second time back. This place feels so homey and Joy is the best!
We loved having you and the girls! Part of why we love doing this is welcoming people back and watching kids grow! Hope to see you all again next year.
My husband and I stayed here for the week and had our adult children up to celebrate all of their birthdays on the weekend. We had a great time and our hosts Joy and Julia were beyond gracious. The accommodations are way above average and there are several perks that make it that much better. We loved the movie service that allows you to pick out a show from a very well organized directory and it appears shortly there after in your mail box via our hosts. The water was high and the temperature for July was a bit below average but despite such, a fabulous time.
We really enjoyed meeting you all and hope to see you again!
This is Thomas Edison's boyhood home. The riverwalk is amazing! It borders the St. Clair river with Canada on the opposite side where a casino awaits any who dare. The annual Port Huron to Mackinac sail boat race is my very favorite wknd. The boats take off opposite our beach and are beautiful! Also the 3rd Sunday in August is the annual Floatdown. This event draws thousands and allows the opportunity to float from the lake to the St. Clair river and beyond. Port Huron and Lexington are both cute towns with quaint shops and restaurants. There are also many festivals, county and art fairs throughout the year. With nearby trails, golf, shopping, swimming, boating etc, etc a good time is just about guaranteed!!
