Fantastic - Large - Swimming Area - Boat Dock - Has It All

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Stone House due to the positive reviews and the large size of the house. It really is huge. It has 7 queen beds and 7 twin beds in logical combinations spread among the 8 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is the "Crow's Nest" which is large enough for 4-5 people to sleep comfortably. All of the bedrooms are fairly good sized. It also has 3-1/2 baths, full sized kitchen with dishwasher, dining room to seat 12, screened porch facing the water, and much more. It's a 100 year old house so there are some sticky doors, some creaks in the floor, and some windows that don't always cooperate - but our first impression when we got there was "WOW!" Better than we had expected.

The setting is serene - right on Scammon Cove which is larger than most inland lakes - and opens up onto Lake Huron. There is a huge boat dock big enough for ANY sized boat. We docked a 24' Sea Ray. Water at the dock is about 3' deep.

The firepit was a favorite hangout at night. The owner provides tons of firewood but you can find plenty of driftwood near the water. At night you can easily see the Milky Way and more stars than you can normally see near any city. On one night we were able to see Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, 5 shooting stars, the International Space Station and several orbiting satellites - it's a sky that you just don't see very often.

We did see some bear tracks near the firepit a couple of mornings - but never spotted any bear. There are lots of deer and other small wildlife. In the evening you can hear the mournful cry of the Loon, a duck-like diving bird that has a very interesting call. The lone moose of the island hasn't been seen in a couple of years.

On the north side of the island are some fossil ledges. We spent a day hanging out there. The drive to the ledges is primarily for 4x4's but we got our minivan and Camry almost all the way there - only had to walk about 1/2 mile. You can rent ATV's on the island if you want to go that route.

The IGA supermarket is very good. We found almost everything we wanted/needed. It's the only supermarket on the island and they take that responsibility seriously. They even bake their own bread and muffins. Prices are higher than average due to the remoteness of the island.

There is a very good Do-It Best hardware store on the island. As a former builder I can attest to the quality/quantity of their selection.

We highly recommend the Stone House!

The quintessential get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 recently vacationed at the Stone House for the second time due to the numerous requests to return to "our most favorite vacation spot ever" from the kids in our group. The large house gave us plenty of room to spread out. The crew's nest on the 3rd level is a desired sleeping spot for the kids. The property is open and spacious looking out to the cove. There are no neighbors nearby either, which makes the place feel even more special and private. This place is a true island gem!

Another Oustanding time at the Stone House

  • 4 of 5

This is the third time we have rented the Stone House for a "Wheeling Weekend". We have had up to 18people stay in the house and there was always room for everyone without feeling crowded. Plenty of parking, nice size kitchen, large dining room with enough seats for all of us and the sunsets are AMAZING! We have hosted friends form around the country (OK, GA, OH, IL, IN, NY, WI, NJ, Etc.) and they all loved the accomidations and the fact we could all stay in the same building.

Galen is a fine host and will try to do whatever he can to accomidate your needs. We have enven had more firwood delivered due to the unusually cold weather one year.

Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Stone House. It is quiet, secluded, and enchanting. With 17 of us, we had lots of room to spread out. Our family enjoys playing games, catching up, family crafts, and jig saw puzzles and Drummond Island and the Stone House is perfect.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

What a magical place! The house is so charming and has tons of character. The setting could not be more beautiful and the whole family had a wonderful time! We had twelve people in our group, so there was plenty of space to spread out and relax. We will definitely be back here again!

Family Vacation time for 17

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet peaceful place to lay back and relax, this is the place. I loved it and would return. With eight bedrooms we had more than enough room to stretch out. The kitchen looks small but is very well organized and well laid out; besides who wants to spend the whole time in the kitchen when on vacation anyway! The views from the large living room windows are spectacular. The sunset is amazingly beautiful. The whole family enjoyed the beach, campfire and nightly "Some Mores". This is the place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We didn't watch TV but kept in touch with the outside world by Internet (service provided). The property was clean, well-kept and the property owner was very helpful and just a call away. I would most certainly recommend this location. As for local activities, we didn't explore too much, just enjoyed family time.
