Restaurants, a great grocery store with an excellent meat market, plus many other stops to satisfy any island visitor. Bringing your car across? Reserve your spot on the ferry for your vehicle (Beaver Island Boat Company 888-446-4095) AS SOON AS POSSIBLE as space is limited during the peak season. Don't forget to fill up before you leave, because gas is expensive on the island. Cell phone service is sporadic at best but WiFi is available.
The guest cottage is located approximately 10 miles from the island hub 'Paradise Bay'. You will need a vehicle on the island.

About Cathy or Jerry
We purchase our property in 1996 and built our retirement home in 2000. The beauty of the island brought us here as we desired quiet and water. Our tranquil life could not be better. We often take our grandchildren to various beach sites on the island including the one in this picture, Cable Bay.
We hope you will enjoy the peace and quite as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner
It was wonderful to have the use of your sweet cottage. I'm going home far more relaxed than when I arrived.
