From the listing, it explains a little of the history that the home may have been through.

"Somewhere in time as you sit on the sun porch of this magnificent home overlooking Lake Huron, you harken back to clippers, schooners, and steamships as they pass through the Straits of Mackinac. In the back stables, the carriages await. Meeting ships arriving at dock conjures images of exotic foods, gifts, visitors, and packages from afar. On this island without motor vehicles, not much has changed. Ships arrive. Carriages roll. Docks fill and empty. A unique place in these United States that endures to this day."

In the front parlor with mural walls and hand-crafted oak fixtures, you can imagine yourself sipping tea or drinking scotch by the warmth of the fire.

If the dining room is too formal, you can take a walk through the kitchen connects you with the breakfast nook and a bright morning sun.

Outside, the backyard has Meijer Gardens running for its money.

"Out the rear door and the oasis of a secret garden sits just across a quiet lane where horses may clomp by on carriage. The original stables remain but remodeled. Above is a fully contained apartment that overlooks the lap pool, fountains, multiple sitting areas, a gazebo, and a hot tub with an outdoor wet bar. The finely manicured hedgerows on both sides provide privacy to which only you, the roses, sedum, and hydrangeas may find solace. "
