Guestbook comments from the owner

The island brings back many memories. I spent my summers here as a child staying with my friend and her grandmother. My husband I spent our honeymoon in the Beard cabin. I've come back for our 25th anniversary and now our 50th. This time we brought our daughter, son, daughter-in-law and 2 granddaughters. It's been wonderful.

A Great Place to get away from it all..............

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here four days with three other couples. Great location only two miles from the ferry dock and a 1/4 mile to Bob-Lo Tavern. Beds were good, the house was well furnished except for hand towels in the bathroom. One bath, but plenty of room for all. Nice screened in porch and awesome views of the lake. I would stay here again anytime!!

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The house was nice, close to the water and had a great view. The house was also well equipped with a lot of extras such as: an aluminum boat, life jackets, fishing poles, bicycles, umbrella and chairs (by the lake) as well as a nice place for a campfire with firewood also supplied. Inside the house was neat and clean, well equipped with satellite TV and most pots/pans that you would need. The island was nice as well with some beautiful inland lakes. Point Aux Pins is a charming community. Hawks Landing was a nice store and restauarant with great food! Supplies are limited on the island so I would recommend taking what you need with you. There is a super Walmart in Cheboygan that is not far from the ferry dock.

Thank you for a great stay!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was excellent, a great vacation spot. It was clean, equipped w/ many extras (fans, games, water shoes, other misc things) and the water was clear. The lake had a mostly rocky bottom, but there were sandy spots in many places. It is mostly private-there are two houses next door but the layout makes it feel private. The fire pit is wonderful in the sand, not far from the water. The bathroom is very large which is great if the house is full-everyone's stuff can fit very easily. Also there are hooks to hang clothes in every room-I thought that was a great touch. There are two rooms upstairs w/ great breezes, and two downstairs. The living room is large and has an open concept into the kitchen/dining. Along w/ that the screened in porch has a large table w/ chairs and a couch for games on warmer nights. The tavern is very close, less than a 1/4 mile and Hawkes landing (the store/restaurant) is about 2 miles away. One thing of note-the store does not have many supplies. If you don't want to leave the island make sure not to forget anything. they have ice, ice cream, beer, snacks, milk, eggs and things like that-If you don't see it, ask someone at the counter. We wanted a specific beer and thought they did not have it, we asked and it turned out they had some in the back. They also have some movie rentals and souveners, and an analog gas pump that is expensive so get your gas on the mainland!
All in all, we could not have been happier w/ this cabin and our vacation there. It was hot and sunny, it was a white sandy beach, and the house was comfortable. I hope to go back there again in the near future for "The Caribbean in Michigan".

This house is perfect! The pictures don't serve it justice. Plus it's been redecorated. We had so much fun. Even our two 2 year olds had a great time....
