Our family hails from Blue Island, IL and we enjoyed every early sunrise and every late sunset. Mom, Dad, 9 year old, 7 year old and 1 1/2 year old found this week to be relaxing, fun and adventurous! We took full advantage of the beach every day and the rowboat! Early mornings were great for seeing nature right out the window. Turkeys, geese, deer, swans and ducks, right in front of us! The kids loved it! The well stocked kitchen was awesome! Thank you! We also enjoyed the games and reading materials. Thanks again for a beautiful vacation location.
This was one of the better vacation getaways we have had in a few years. The house was clean, beds were comfortable, and there was plenty enough available in the home to cook, clean laundry, and relax.
The beach was wonderful, and the sunrises were beautiful, along with the freighters passing through. We had a long four day weekend stay with beautiful weather. There is plenty to do, enjoying the refreshing "COLD" water on Lake Huron, hiking, fishing, and canoeing.
I would highly recommend staying here and we will be coming again. Linda has a very accommodating home, perfect place to stay on vacation.
First off, the view from the house, of the beach, was absolutely beautiful. You saw the sun rise in the morning from the living room and a great view of the stars at night. The screened porch was great for just lounging back with some cocktails, enjoying the sound of the waves and breezes off the lake. The beach is literally about 150ft away from the house. Water was clear. It’s about a quarter mile arc of sandy/pebbly beach with just 3 cottages. The cottage is at the end of the 3, so there is plenty of beach for kids to play on. Lots of sea animal fossils are on the shore line if you look for them. There are board games at the house plus some old movies for the kids (Aladdin/Matilda). We were told by the locals in Cheboygan that this island was “rugged and wild”. They weren’t kidding. We saw wild turkeys, a couple of does with fawns, and swans in the morning, right in front of the big window of the house. The main roads are packed dirt covered with gravel with trails leading into the dense forest in the center of the island. I have a Land Rover and I was putting it through its paces getting through the trails. There are no lights on the main roads. This is not a small island. I drove for 9 miles on the main road circling the island before I had to turn around and go back (kids were getting hungry). I had covered about a quarter of the island. No issue with cell phone reception (LTE). There is a land line phone in the cottage for emergencies. Bring cash with you to dispose of the garbage on the island ($2) per bag (about 28 gallon bags). Issue we had was with biting flies at the beach, but only for 2 days there, and the provided fly swatters made sure they didn’t come back. Overall it was a great family experience.
surprised to see the cottage looks exactly as appears on this site. The house was well stocked with all the things you would need at the lake. General Store was great and had reasonable prices. We saw 30 plus deer in the week we were there. Caught some fish on Lake Mary. Found that we didn't have the necessary equipment to catch big fish on Lake Huron. Was told there was no one who charters on the island. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this home.
House is close to the ferry, Hawks Landing, Twin Lakes and Thompson Lake. The house is on a sandy beach which was great for our kids. House was clean and well stocked. Owner was quick to respond to questions and had everything ready to go. We had a great time and are hoping we have time to get back again next year.
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!!
Boating, swimming, fishing, reading, walking and just plain relaxation!
