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!!
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We purchased this cottage in 2010 and loved it so much that we bought a house two doors down and moved here permanently.
Why the Owner Chose Fort Gratiot charter Township, MI, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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!
