Former “Sunset Bay” Property to Reopen – Vacation Rental / Waterfront Restaurant / Marina

Great news for Lake St. Clair things to do & places to stay! After a year on hiatus, the former Sunset Bay property on northern Lake St. Clair has been purchased by the Kip Plagen’s family, lifetime local residents. The new property of Plagen’s Pier Marina – Sunset “VIEW” Vacation Rental – and Waterfront Restaurant / Tiki Bar will be managed by this third generation of marina owners, Kyle Plagens.

Sunset View VACATION RENTAL – The waterfront property boasts a beautiful sunset view! The vacation rental, which was open for three seasons, will now be open again year round for fishermen and families to visit beginning late April. Other people may want to consider going to holiday villas abroad, but for those who want to stay local this location is a perfect option. People are happy to see this back again. This choice was made after the owners read through some of the Roofstock real estate investing books listed on their site. The rental can accommodate up to six guests with boat wells available next door at the marina. Vacation rental information and online booking calendar can be found at

RESTAURANT – The Plagen’s family plan to lease out the restaurant as soon as possible and hope to be open for the boating season. A few upgrades will need to be made to the restaurant, such as getting Nella Cutlery, changing some of the kitchen equipment and a quick lick of paint. None of these will take long but boating season is fast approaching. Potential “restauranteurs” are being interviewed now, but if interested, send them an email at

MARINA – The marina has 45 boat wells which are now being offered for seasonal rental. The marina also has a large fenced storage area which is available year round for boat / trailer / RV storage. The protected marina area behind the restaurant will see some additional landscaping this season and freshening up! Contact Kyle for dockage at

The property has been renamed “Plagen’s Pier” and is located in Clay Township at 7479 Dyke Road (M29) on northern Anchor / Bouvier Bay.
