I booked this property over 8 months ago, I read that Pete was a great guy but words can not describe how accommodating this couple could be, the house was great and designed to please a couple or a family of 7, just watch your head on the stairs (Ouch) House is fully stocked as if it were your own, you need only bring your own food, the owners will have a special surprise for you upon arrival as well, the rooms are themed so you can pick the one you like the best, the sun room off the Master suite is great, open the windows and feel the cool breeze and listen to the ships as they travel the St Clair River, the wood floors creak like they should in an old home. you can sit on the dock as well and try your hand at fishing or just enjoy the peace on the river but watch out for the two dogs although they are loving they will try and make you feel guilty about not feeding them with their loving eyes. My wife and I did not want to leave after 2 weeks as we had bonded with the owners as well as the home itself, you will love this place and Pete and his wife are the best but again watch you head on those stairs. We have already booked again for next year.
We wanted to rent a place big enough for 4 adults and 2 children in this area for a wedding at Hoppily Ever After Farms. We picked As Ships Go By and we’re so glad we did. It was spacious and the view was spectacular from the many windows, upstairs and downstairs, to watch the activity on the river. The owners’ put a lot of thought and effort into making sure the house had everything you’d need while on vacation. Plenty of pillows, towels, and even a full size washer and dryer. The owners were open and friendly and enjoyed the company of the kids. We were all made to feel very welcome and the kids absolutely loved their two dogs. There were games for the adults and kids to play in the back sun room. It was a real treat for the kids, and adults, to jump off the dock and swim in the river. They didn’t want to leave the house. Everything about our experience was wonderful. It will definitely be a memorable family vacation. As an added bonus, we enjoyed the quaintness of Marine City’s downtown restaurants and shopping.
Had a group stay for a fishing trip at "As Ships Go By". The home was well kept, nicely furnished, well thought out and everything we needed and more was waiting for us when we arrived. The home's location on the St. Clair River was convenient to area attractions and provided stunning views. The back yard goes directly to the river edge and a nice dock is provided. In addition, the owners were great people who were helpful with any questions we had about the local area. When travelling I generally try to rent this type of property, and have all over the country over the years. This was probably the best overall experience I have had with a vacation rental home. This property will be my "go-to" when in the Lake St. Clair area.
