The main sleeping area has a queen sized local made Detroit Floyd platform bed. With the shades up at night, you can see the moon rise and the brilliant northern Michigan stars; then in the morning, watch the sun rise over Lake Huron. It's spectacular! In order to preserve the views, an open floor plan has been developed. The second bedroom is smaller with twin beds, a dresser, closet, and side table with lamp. All beds have 100% cotton sheets and 100% wool blankets, with pillows and comforters that are washed and/or replaced frequently.

About Helen Hierta
We feel so grateful to live in this area of northern Michigan, to enjoy year 'round amazing weather and views of Lake Huron. This is truly an inspiring retreat from the world! As a ceramic artist, I'm fortunate to have my art studio next to one of the world's five largest inland seas. If you are interested in clay, sculpting, wheel work or hand building, just let me know. I teach privates, workshops, and sometimes host birthday parties. Many of my sculptures are on the property, and have been exhibited in national galleries. I love to see families enjoying the beach and toys. This is a safe haven from the world, a place to relax and renew. I love to see families enjoying the beach and toys.

Helen Hierta purchased this house in 1970
Why Helen Hierta chose Greenbush
WHAT SETS THIS PROPERTY APART FROM OTHERS? We have 150' of private beach! The rental house is large and comfortable with big windows and expansive views. There is a lovely flower and sculpture garden, and everywhere on the property there are beautiful views of Lake Huron. A guest last year (2019) wasn't able to submit his review to VRBO before the 14 days review allowance ended, yet he wanted you to know this: "My family and several good friends enjoyed our week-long stay at Helen’s property on Lake Huron last summer. The understated mid-century décor and quiet surroundings put us at our ease and fostered a very relaxing and peaceful visit. It was a great antidote to our normally hectic lives. We enjoyed reading, playing games, cooking, napping, kayaking, taking pictures, swimming, an open outdoor fireplace, guitar playing, exploring nearby State Parks for day hikes, canoeing on the Au Sable River, etc. The lake was very high last summer, and the dock was partly awash, but didn’t diminish our enjoyment of the sandy beach and shoreline. Helen was attentive but unobtrusive, a great host." A BIT OF HISTORY: the property has been in my family for 50 years. It was originally run as a vacation resort called "Cherokee Trails" by my stepdad, a Detroit auto designer, who purchased three beach lots as an adult. Over the years two of the lots were sold, and some of the original guest cottages were combined into single structures. When the opportunity arose to repurchase one of the lots, we did so. There are now two adjacent properties that total two acres with 150' of private beach. I live on one property that also has my ceramic art studio. The other property, separated by numerous trees and a large flower/sculpture garden, showcases the 1700 sq. ft beach rental house.
What makes this house unique
The sky is always changing, the water reflects the moods of the seasons, and the shoreline goes from dramatic to calm within hours. It's never boring here. There is a large sandy beach as well as a natural ecosystem. Last summer we had a kildeer nest. Deer, fox, pileated woodpeckers, heron, owls, eagles, terns ... it is naturally perfect here. Quiet, private and laid back.
