Not what I was expecting

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.
