Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? The cottage is lovely and comfortable. We especially enjoyed sitting on the front deck to enjoy the weather and the stars at night. Comfortable beds, fluffy towels, wifi, TV, nice kitchen (although we didn't cook. This was a vacation, after all!), and nicely decorated living areas all added up to truly feeling at home. The location was perfect for our needs. Beautifully landscaped and in a lightly wooded area with easy walking distance to a small private beach and the main street of the small town. Peaceful and serene!!

Communication with our hosts was easy and helpful before our trip, as we were welcomed on arrival at the ferry dock and as needed during our stay. Could not have been better!

We would highly recommend this cottage and others owned by our hosts!

Great time on Beaver Island

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Brian & Becca's house. They had a great setup near town which allowed us to walk there. We were totally comfortable relaxing at the house & loved having a fire pit and bean toss. No complaints.

Wonderfully Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Sunny Oaks Cottage and had a wonderful time. The home was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We had everything we needed, including a washer and dryer. Every evening we had Cornhole Compititions before gathering around a bonfire. The location of the home is perfect - just minutes to the grocery store and a short walk to the beach. Bryan and Becca are great hosts as well. If we had any questions, they responded promptly. We can't wait to stay again! John and Tami and family

Great place! Highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful time on Beaver Island. This was the first time we rented a home on the island and we were very happy our choice. The location is super convenient. There is a great beach within easy walking distance of the house and the marina is only a couple of blocks away. We had family staying on their boats at the marina so getting up to the house for family dinners was super easy. The house is very well equipped, very clean and everything was in good working order. Brian met us at the dock with a GIANT welcome sign :)) Great house, great hosts, would happily rent again!

A Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great get away on Beaver Island in Sunny Oaks Cottage! It is a beautiful, well-equipped cottage, and we enjoyed staying there very much. Bryan and Becca are wonderful hosts and were helpful in every way. Bryan met us at the Ferry and took us to the cottage with our luggage. We rented bicycles for the week, but rented a car from our hosts for one day to see the Island. We would definitely recommend Sunny Oaks Cottage and a stay on Beaver Island. It's a great place to relax.

Nearest Ferry
0.25 Miles

You come to Beaver Island to get away from it all. There is 1 cute shop that sells clothing, candles etc. Other than that you have a grocery store and gas station that sells t shirts. The point of being on the island is to experience the beauty of nature and the history of the island.
