LAKE MICHIGAN PRIVATE 250' BEACH LOG CABIN GETAWAY

Beaver Island Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Kickapoo camp was the name of a small group of cabins at Kelly's Point years ago. We have saved this one room cabin by building a new, larger cabin completely over it, finishing the project in May 2010. If you enjoy history and retro furnishings this is the place for you. We have a completely furnished cabin, just bring your food and drink.

The cabin has huge windows with sweeping views of Lake Michigan and you will be mesmerized by the waves. Often, huge freighters pass and the ferry of course. You can use the binoculars to get a closer view or the telescope to see the mainland. The waterfowl love our shallow waterfront and swans often join the wide variety of birds. We have 250' of lakefront but no year-round neighbors so it is a very private 'getaway'.

It is a short bike ride or hike to the south end light house (open to the public) and Iron Ore Bay. There you will find lovely sand beach, picnic area, dunes, etc. There is a spring fed creek our grandchildren play in for hours. The sunrise and moonrise are both spectacular and you won't believe the stars you can see!! Enjoy the pace of the island and the solitude and peace of nature.

There is no phone or TV and cell service is often spotty at our cabin.

Shaker and Lisa on East side drive during the first snow of December. We enjoy the island every season; maybe winter the most. The snow is so pristine. We are residents of NW Indiana and visit our children in GA and NC often. So we are on the go as much as we can be and still work ! Horses and carriage driving are our main hobbies and they travel with us from Beaver Island to Florida.

Lisa Hites purchased this cabin in 2006

When you see it you will know why

Total peace and the beauty of nature will renew your spirit.

Exactly what I needed! I was looking for a place to relax and reflect and this rustic retreat provided exactly that. I began each day with a fresh perked mug of strong black coffee and stroll along the water. On my first day at the cabin, I was amazed to see an eagle doing the same( minus the mug) on the peninsular strip of land across from me. There was always an assortment of feathered friends available for viewing (thanks for the binoculars).
I enjoyed preparing meals in your quaint kitchen, from blueberry pancakes (from berries I picked on the island) to lovely fresh whitefish ( purchased at the fish market near the toy store) with garden vegetables ( I harvested from the garden on Kings Highway- pay according to prices listed on a paper posted on the fence/leave your money in the coin box) or from the Thursday morning farmer's market
near the airport.
The weather was beautiful and the air fresher than any I'd had the pleasure of breathing recently.
I left your home with a renewed spirit. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise.

To some, the thought of trekking off to a rustic place with 3 small children and no ‘devices’ to keep them entertained, may evoke thoughts of shock and horror to the modern parent. However…..our boys (ages 9, and 3 year old twins) had a great time simply playing on the rocky beach in front of the house, collecting shells, playing with our Shih Tzu, rowing around with their Dad in the Jon boat and looking forward to our daily excursions around the island. When they weren’t outside, they were playing with puzzles, drawing, reading or playing with some of the inexpensive toys (50 cents…) that we picked up at the toy museum in town. My husband and I really enjoyed the fact that we were without cell service or internet at the cabin. Yes....you read that right. It was honestly the first time in 15 years that we were able to return from vacation, feeling like we had truly been given a break. Our once a day trip in to town to check e-mail using the library’s free Wi-Fi, was good enough. And it also gave us an excuse to eat ice cream with the kids (Daddy Franks).

The cabin is very cute, clean and maintained. We found everything we needed to make our week’s stay comfortable and having a washing machine to deal with the goo created by 3 boys, was a super bonus! For frozen items, we packed along our own cooler and purchased additional ice in town. We cook everything from scratch for our family of 5….and we made a point of not eating meals out on the island. We even brought a cooler full of vegetables picked from our garden in Chicago – and they survived just fine. In addition, the store in town had plenty of food to fill in the blanks.
Our oldest had a good time cooking with me in the 50’s kitchen. Using a percolator and a cast iron skillet was something new for him. We even rolled out a homemade pizza and baked it in the cute oven– which the boys said was one of the best things they ate all vacation. We especially enjoyed listening to the vintage radio.
The view out the front window is spectacular! I cannot tell you how many hours we spent just watching the weather change and critters that happened by. One day the boys watched an eagle catch fish out in the bay and they thought that was pretty neat.
Our favorite place on the island had to be Cable Bay, which was so incredibly close that we could walk there if we wanted to.
I also want to mention that Lisa (owner) was very prompt in answering my questions via e-mail. Made things very easy.

Owner's Response: Thanks Cristin and family for leaving the cabin spotless! Since we do not charge any additional fees for anything, just ask that you leave it ready for the next family , they did a super job. Most importantly, that you could step out of the busy world we live in and enjoy family and nature without distraction. Beaver Island offers this escape {and it is a dog paradise as well}.Glad all have a wonderful time!

My husband and I are always looking for unique, quiet, remote rentals on the lake and this place absolutely fits that bill! Plenty of space for two people, well stocked and totally magical! While we hit a really hot week for all of Michigan, the cottage has a full ceiling fan that cools off the building well. We always had good sleeping weather. The island is full of interesting places - beaches, museums, restaurants, walks, bike rides, kayaking lakes. One of the ferries was out of commission for our arrival and our car came a day after we did. No problem - the owners loaned us their vehicle. How wonderful is that! We found all the people on the island to be friendly and we even had a tough time getting used to not locking up everything constantly. The whole place is a wonderful step back in time. A great place to relax! Thanks for the experience.

Owner's Response: Thanks! and we are glad the 25 year old suburban we have got you there and back... This is the spirit of the island; if you need a ride ask ANYONE and they will take you where you need to go {but remember if you see someone on foot ask them if they need a ride}.Thanks as well for leaving the cabin in good shape for the next family. I don't know who started the tradition of leaving beer for the next folks, but it is a pretty cool idea...appreciated I am sure!

This home is wonderful and was as described in the listing. Very clean and tidy. Good supply of linens and towels. Great personal touches through out the cabin gave it a "home" feel. The vintage kitchen was fun to work in! The picture window offers a beautiful lakefront view, especially at sunrise. Not a swimming beach, but my 2 children (12 & 4) enjoyed hunting for fossils and rock-skipping. We saw loons, bald eagles, snakes, turtles, frogs, turkeys, bunnies, deer. A true outdoor adventure, and when you have had enough of the outdoors, you return to the comforts of home. We visited many beaches...our favorite is still Dongel Bay. A drive to the other side of the island, but well worth it. Take the short trek to see Martin's Bluff - beautiful view. If you prefer a longer hike, go see Cable's Bay. A .2 mile hike through beautiful forests and dunes ends at the Bay, where you can enjoy a gorgeous view. Daddy Franks has really good food especially the ice cream! The Shamrock great food as well. Especially the Irish Potato Skins! The Toy Museum is a must see. If you enjoy a garage sale/ thrift shopping, visit the Fireman's Auxillary Store. Fun to hunt for treasures. Be sure to pack sweatshirts, as the evenings can get chilly. Beaver Island is a wonderful, friendly, relaxing place to visit.

My husband and I really enjoyed the opportunity to stay in such a unique place on our trip to look over a recently purchased piece of property. There were lots of rentals available but the retro appliances really sold me on giving Lisa's cabin a try and I am so glad we did! It was great fun to get to step into the "museum" and bring it to life! It is different but well worth meeting halfway. Her letter of directions and suggestions for hikes and views was also really helpful. She loves this place and it shows! You do need to be aware of some limitations before you go, such as lack of ice and the usual capabilities of more modern appliances, but just grab some ice at the store or at Daddy Frank's (super nice people by the way!) and you're all set. My husband really loved the quietness and found it a great place to just unwind, and enjoyed the hiking trails that were easily accessible from the cabin. I think they have something really special and have done a great job!
