Resting on the Northeastern shores of Anchor Bay, within Lake St. Clair lies the Sunset Bay Lake House.  Sunset Bay is a newly renovated lake house with a heavenly view of the soothing Anchor Bay. Just a few miles from the St. Clair River bordering Canada, 25 miles north of Detroit, Sunset Bay Lake House provides an ideal backdrop for a classic summer vacation with your family.

This 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom lake house has been fully renovated in 2022.  The kitchen has been updated and reflects a crisp, contemporary edge. To be able to cook while visiting with family in the living room, plus stretch a glance at the bay, makes for an ideal setting. Sunset Bay is a wonderful place to bring your family and  friends, where 2 couples can each have their privacy with the kids enjoying the 2 sets of twin bunk beds together in one room; or where a larger family of 5-6 can invite the grandparents along to add to the family memories which await.

The sunporch overlooking the bay is the perfect place to read a book, or simply relax.  It's the place to soak in the morning with your cup of coffee overlooking the Bay as the mist off the water sprinkles the air.  Plus, when the sun begins its decent, end the day in the same spot with your favorite glass of wine as you watch the beautiful sunset on the horizon.

Open year round, where you can bring your boat/sailboat in the summer or your ice fishing shanty + auger in the winter to Sunset Bay Lake House. (Please check that the ice is at a safe level of thickness before you traverse the bay.)  Here you have the opportunity to create memories, which will bring you years of smiles as you reflect upon your time along Anchor Bay.

Beautiful Place!
The communication and check in process was very good. The property is in a pretty area with the lake and a boardwalk right behind the house. It was too chilly for us to be outside much but there was a nice backyard with a firepit that I wish we could have utilized. There was plenty of sleeping space and everything was clean and nice. We were in the area for not so great reasons, but we definitely appreciated our lodging!


Thanks for taking the time to review your stay, Jolene! Even though it wasn't for the best of reasons, we are so happy to know you could enjoy your time at the house, and that it could  provide you with a good clean place to come back to. Hopefully we will have a chance to host you again under better circumstances and when the weather is a bit more comfortable!

Just Perfect!!!
We absolutely loved your rental all the accommodations were perfect!! Everything was so clean, the bedding was so cozy, and the view. We plan on coming back with our families. One thing the water dispenser on the outside of the refrigerator once the glass was moved it was still going off with water for a couple of seconds. We wiped up the floor right away.


Hi Tenny! We are so delighted to know you enjoyed your stay, and found the home to be clean and comfortable! We appreciate you notifying us about the water dispenser, so we can get that checked out. We can't wait to host another stay with you in the future, and look forward to your return!

The house was nice. There was no propane so we had to pay for that. Not a lot of cookware, we had to buy some to make our meals.

Amy, please know that when working with us, if ever there is something missing from the property, if you let us know we will get it for you.  We done;t expect you to buy items for the cottage.  We hope that overall, you enjoyed your stay, and we would like to work with you again.

Hooray for Sunset Bay!!!!
Chick Weekend was a complete blast! Seven of us have been traveling together for nineteen years, and we have stayed in some really cool places. This year, I booked Sunset Bay on Anchor Bay Drive and everyone loved the location and accommodations. Gorgeous coastal vibe and very clean! Sheets were almost as amazing as the beautiful sunsets! This house is a keeper and I’d love to book it again and go back with my family next summer. The only recommendation I have - more toilet paper. It is a minor infraction- but, between seven women, we definitely would have run out if we had stayed another day.


Wow! Thank you Colleen for taking the time to share your review! After 19 years of travel, we are delighted to know that you all enjoyed your stay at Sunset Bay! It's also great to know that the comfort level was to your liking with the sheets and cleanliness! We look forward to hosting you all, possibly for your 20th year!

Spotless. Comfortable beds, plenty of room for our family of 5 adults. Beautiful sunsets and a great fire pit.

Betsy, thanks for this review.  Sunsets over the bay and  great fire pits make for a fabulous evening at the lake.  We hope to work with you again!
