Welcome Paddlers! We provide overnight lodging across the street from Bouvier Bay, Lake St. Clair. From here you may explore miles of scenic shoreline, creeks, channels, and waterways surrounding islands. You can paddle along the shoreline of Bouvier Bay to make your way into St. John's Marsh, Swan Creek, or into the St. Clair River to navigate around islands and their "flats". We can suggested day excursions for you. The excursions range from one to several hours or an entire day of paddling. You may want to consider a morning trip, come back to the house so you can relax, then go back out later in the afternoon for another excursion.

We welcome both the uninitiated and the experienced Paddlers If you want to learn how to kayak then we offer rental equipment and training. You can also have a guide accompany you on your first kayak excursion! If you are an experienced Paddlers then we offer you a great guest house for your "home base" and a convienent launch site across the street at a public launch.

Our Vacation House is clean, safe, and was recently been remodeled. There is a large living room with a dining table in front of the picture window overlooking Bouvier Bay. The house has basic cable service, TV/stereo/DVD players, a fully equiped modern kitchen with oven/range/microwave, cooking utensils and table service for six. The second floor has two bedrooms, a lounge area with a futon, and a large bathroom. We believe the house is best suited for four house guests but we can accommodate six house guests (i.e. upcharge if more than four). We proved bed linen and some towels for our house guests.
The backyard has a large patio area with picnic table, deck chairs, hammock, charcoal grill, gas grill, fire pit (wood not provide but maybe purchased locally or scavage from adjacent wooded area) fish cleaning station, available parking for four cars with trailers and outside electrical service. There is a party store that delivers hot meals and bait shop across the street. If you want to dine out then there are six waterfront restaurants all within a two mile drive. The restaurants provide everything from causual to upscale dining. On the weekend some of the restaurants offer free entertainment on their patios.
