Overview

Beaver Island Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-6)

Get Away to an unspoiled natural environment where several eagle sitings daily are common. A place that has been virtually untouched and unspoiled, that is Beaver Island. Our cabin (Eagle's Rest) is situated 100 feet from Lake Michigan on a 10 acre Parcel. The views of Lake Michigan and High Island are spectacular!

Getting to Beaver Island: The first stop is Charlevoix, MI, a Lake Michigan harbor city located approx 250 miles north of Detroit. You can also fly into Pelston or Traverse City airports and connect to Ferry or Island Airways in Charlevoix. From Charlevoix take a quick 20 minute flight or the 2 hour leisurely ferry ride on the Emerald Isle. Either way, it's an amazing adventure!

When you arrive on the island you will find a place that will take you back in time. Slow, patient, friendly and Beautiful! You might want to stop at the Shamrock for a beverage after the ferry ride or take the scenic 20 minute drive straight out to Eagle's Rest. Distance is measured by time on the Island, most of the roads have not been paved...it's just another way to make you slow down!

When you reach Eagle's Rest the drive in is through a wooded pathway into a vast open area with scattered trees along the perimeter. Eagle's Rest was built in 2004, and is very charming, with spectacular views of Lake Michigan and High Island. It is 900 sq. feet including the loft, has a great front porch and slate patio overlooking the lake. All furnishings are new or local antiques. Eagle's Rest has electricity and running water, the toilet is in the new 'old fashioned' outhouse, there is an outdoor shower with cold and hot running water (and a shower curtain for privacy). It is the renter's responsibility to bring their own sheets and towels. Eagle's Rest has a charming decor with an open layout which includes 14 large Anderson windows, many are floor to ceiling overlooking Lake Michigan. There is one large loft with 2 single beds. The main floor has a comfortable pull out couch. It's perfect for a family of 4-6.

You may enjoy a good book overlooking Lake Michigan, walk the miles of sandy beach, take a swim in the clear lake water, explore the island and over 100 miles of roads and trails, kayak using the 2 kayaks provided, go for a bike ride using the 2 bikes provided, fish on one of the 5 inland lakes, roast marshmallows in the fire pit on the beach, admire the vast array of stars, discover some of the other islands in the Archipelego, visit the spa for a massage, play nine at the Beaver golf course, lounge on the patio, cocktails at Nina's, Donnegal Bay to enjoy the sunset, visit the CMU Biological center, or the 2 lighthouses on the island, Little Sand Bay, Iron Ore Bay or simply do Nothing! This is a vacation you will never forget and leave feeling truly rested. *Cabin is currently being added on to, this allows for additional sleeping space and use of an indoor toilet. Construction will not occur when you are renting.*

Why Gerry chose Beaver Island

I chose to buy land on Beaver Island because of it's unique natural beauty and isolation

What makes this cabin unique

It is so quite and isolated. I enjoy the solitude and natural beauty.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at this cabin for a weekend. Everyone on the island was very friendly. We had quick responses and communication with the owner of the cabin. The owner of the rental car company did not have a car available on our day of arrival so she picked us up and took us to our cabin then delivered a car to us. All while giving us a tour of the island. We went out to eat and everyone was so friendly and we found people who were from the same home town as us. The cabin was perfect for the price. They are adding onto the cabin but in no way shape or form did this hinder the feeling of staying in a cabin for us. It was nice to be able to use the indoor toilet tho! The bikes and kayaks were a HUGE plus. We went for a 3 hour bike ride and happen to ride by our neighbors(which we found out after we stopped and asked for directions) who were very friendly and gave us many inside tips on the island. We took the kayaks out for a full day. If you are an adventure person and not just a relax on the beach person then this is the perfect spot. You have to truck through a little muck to get the kayaks to the water but it is worth it! Once you get out to the water it is absolutely beautiful. It was only about 72 degrees the day we were out on the water but the water was so warm! The grill and fireplace were great to cook and relax at the end of the night. The shower is out on the back deck of the cabin, kind of tucked away tho, which was a great experience. I loved showering outdoors and just seeing the beauty of everything around. Overall I have no complaints. If you wanted to get away and be left alone and hang out at the cabin all weekend you could or if you wanted to go out and explore you could. We will defiantly be coming back!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the cabin for five nights in July 2013 and had an amazing time. The cabin was just as explained in the listing. The caretaker was very helpful and we received quick response times and good information from the owner. This cabin along with the island are very relaxing. We cannot wait until we can visit again. Thank you very much!

Peace and Quiet

Great place to stay if you want to relax. The cabin is rustic, and yes, the large addition is not completed, but the working toilet was nice to have! And the property will look wonderful upon completion. Will definitely consider staying here again.

Not what I was expecting

  • 2 of 5
This is a lovely setting and the cabin is sort of like what is pictured. The problem for me was the building it is attached to (not shown in the photo) which is currently half built. No longer rustic, and more like a construction site if you like that sort of thing. I made the best of it but felt duped. As far as peace and quiet, I was treated to several evenings of fireworks from a nearby property, which terrorized my dog and almost made me wish I had stayed home. Beaver Island is great and I will come back, but not to this property. There are alot of better options.

Owner's Response: Amy is right, the cabin is being upgraded. The upgrades are now much more complete than when she stayed in August 2012. It has an interior toilet now instead of the outhouse, a front porch for lounging and extra sleeping space and beds in the addition. I have discounted the rates appropriately to make up for the slight inconvenience. As far as the noise goes, I have never experienced that myself. I guess it is possible that someone was using fireworks in the area. The closest residence to the south is about a quarter mile and the to the north is a third of a mile. It is a lovely residence that is in the process of being made even better. Please call the owner if you would like a better explanation.

Labor Day 2011

  • 4 of 5
My husband & I went during Labor Day to run the Big Beaver half marathon. Communication with Gerry was prompt and professional. Couldn't of asked for better weather to soak up the rays and enjoy the scenery. Semi rustic cabin great for the adventurous type. It's about 20 minutes from downtown (or Shamrocks Bar). Gorgeous view of the lake, but there's no beach to walk along - very marsh but nice looking. Giant fire pit to cozy to and even cook. There's grates to put on top of it to cook food. If that's not your fancy a charcoal grills provided too. Plenty of chairs for company to sit on outside as well. Out house about 200ft away from the cabin - very clean. Inside it's cozy enough for 4 max I'd say. Plenty of kitchen supplies & utensils to make a nice feast. 3 bikes provided but just for some leisurely riding. Showers outside just enough to get you clean and a beautiful view of the outdoors while you suds up. There's 2 kayaks to use, but we didn't use them. The people on the island are so hospitable. We're definitely coming back!

Before our arrival the cabin owners were very helpful and prompt in answering questions.
Upon our arrival we found a gorgeous quiet well maintained site.
The shower with hot water and well-supplied kitchen exceeded our expectations.
We spent many memorable hours sitting in the Adirondack chairs next to a fire with an unbeatable view of sky and water.
