Property Description

Quaint 1850's Home, first to be built in Port Sanilac. Originally named the Bark Shanty, the home sits next to, and in the shadow of the Port Sanilac Lighthouse, on the water and inside the protection of the Port Sanilac Harbor and breakwall. This is the perfect location to view the festivities and action of the harbor and marina, while still enjoying direct access and the view of Lake Huron and the freighters. Location is 1/2 block to Uri's Landing and the Marina and 1 block from other restaurants, the Village Park. The vicinity is perfect for Families with children, close to the park, large back yard for play and beautiful Lake Street for strolling or bike riding.

Rolling yard between House and Lake/Harbor is perfect for a Wedding, 20x40 tent, table and chairs for 80-100. There is parking across the street that will hold 50-100 vehicles. Lovely place for a wedding and reception. We are partnered with local Rental Company where all the needed accessories can be reserved. Partnered also with the best Caterers in the region, this could be the wedding of your dreams. Call or email for more details.

Spa weekends available ! We partner with a local spa to provide Massage Therapist, Manicure, Pedicure, Facials and Wraps. Call for details and book early! (BTW - literally the best Massage Therapist EVER on staff!!!)

Watching the Water from the Porch was Mesmerizing

This is our second Labor Day stay here with family and once again we LOVED the porch!! The bonfire on the new paver brick patio was wonderful with the full moon shining on the water, roasted marshmallows and the flashing lighthouse behind us. We sailed all day Sunday on our boat in the marina and came back for taco dinner on the porch. Our grandson... Read More

Great Weekend Getaway!

We had a full house with 8 girls staying here but we managed to make the 1 bathroom work. It was a great location, walking distance to most places and had a wonderful view. We loved the historic aspect to the house. And even when it rained it was awesome that we could sit outside on the porch. My only cons are; 1.) While it says sleeps 8, the 8th... Read More

We've long had a painting of this "iconic" (built in 1851) house at the farm.

I stayed at this property with 7 other girls for a bachelorette weekend at the beginning of July, and we had a great time. The beds comfortably slept 7 of us (2 in each queen, 2 in the full, and 1 in the top bunk), and we brought an air mattress for the 8th girl (there is a couch that could also have been used). Morning coffee on the deck, afternoo... Read More
