The House on the Hill offers many activities all year round. You may choose to stroll the groomed trails of our 50 private acres of land. Or you may prefer to sit back and relax on our porch and take in the pristine view of Saint Clair Lake. Of course you can always take one of our kayaks or canoe out for a quiet ride, and don’t forget your fishing pole!
