More information and Lease located here http://www.vacation-michigan.com/Eagle%20Ridge/

Come, stay on Bois Blanc Island, known by the locals as Bob Lo Island, 24,000 acres of relaxing “nature’s Paradise.” and 30 miles of shoreline.

Your vacation to Eagle Ridge starts when you get on the ferry operated by Plaunt Transportation (888 752 8687 ) departing from Cheboygan Michigan heading on the 45 min trip to the Island. During the Ferry ride, the true remote nature of the Island begins to set in. Once you arrive on the Island, you will be met by our Island manager and headed just a short 6.8 mile drive from the dock to Eagle Ridge, however we suggest that you stop at Hawks landing and claim you free ice cream cone for the the kids before you head for Eagle Ridge for the start of your Island Adventure. The cabin sleeps 10, with a master suite downstairs and 4 sets of bunk beds in the upstairs loft that is divided into two areas with a bathroom in between.. There is a full bath on each floor, and a beautifully ceramic tiled fully furnished kitchen ( WITH 2 full size REFRIGERATORS ) for all the food you will bring for your relaxing week on the Island. Don't have to bring extra ice chests for you food. The main floor offers a family room with vaulted ceilings, TV, and leather seating. Additionally on the main floor, is a family dining area, screened/glassed in porch (no bugs).

For outdoor activities, we provide as they would say at 'LL Bean' a wickedly nice open porch and deck area with ample seating including two round tables with umbrellas, without a doubt the absolutely most fantastic and unforgettable star gazing you will ever experience ( NO LIGHT POLLUTION ), a charcoal grill,( Bring charcoal and lighter ) campfire pit, fire wood, and close beach access. You will listen to the waves crash all night long..

Since you don't want to get you car all scratched up, we provide an old Jeep Liberty and 2 Mountain Bikes to help you explore the many different areas on the Island. This is the perfect way to see some of the more remote parts of the island that would be difficult to get to otherwise. A Canoe with motor and two Kayaks are there for your use, on the 'Big Lake' or one of the really neat inland lakes.

While the Island is quite remote by mainland' standards, all of your needs can be met without leaving the Island. There is a restaurant/general store that also sells gasoline and has Fantastic Pizza. There is a bar that serves food, as well. For those of you that just can't be without INTERNET service, the general store/restaurant offers free Wi-Fi service as long as you are participating as a customer. ( If you have a cell phone with Internet,it will work at Eagle Ridge on the porch )

Most visitors spend the day exploring the wilderness of the island; swimming, hiking, boating, fishing, and enjoying what the island has to offer. The perfect way to wind down is to relax in the cabin, perhaps admiring the true log cabin structure of Eagle Ridge, like the locally sourced handrail on the staircase, and sharing your day's experiences with others in the cabin. As your vacation ends, and you are on the Ferry back to the mainland, you will find that you will be eager to return to 'The Island' and Eagle Ridge.

Keywords: Rustic Log Cabin with all the amenities you could ask for. Including, Jeep Liberty, 2 Kayaks, 1 canoe with motor, 2 mountain bikes for exploration, washer/dryer, (High resolution Photos compliments of J. Batdorf.)

About Steve

Steve, AKA ' Uncle Steve ' has been coming to Bois Blanc Island for the past 15 plus years. So when he decided to retire from Ferris State University in 2003, he decided to take on a log home Dealership. Well when you sell log homes you need a demo home right ? Hold on, loving wife of 45 plus years has to buy into this concept of being away from home all summer on a beautiful island.. Not a hard sell. Eagle Ridge was built in 2006 and has been enjoyed ever since. Kyu Hui, pronounced Q-He, (brains of the outfit) was in charge of all the furnishings and ceramic tile work that went into Eagle Ridge... She is a stickler for detail and picky picky. We love sharing Eagle Ridge with families that enjoy the pristine nature of Bois Blanc Island AKA Bob-Lo

Steve purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Steve chose Michigan

Bob Lo is Heaven on Earth... Need we say more..

What makes this cabin unique

Twenty four thousand acres of undisturbed State land to explore. Four large inland lakes to enjoy, Hundreds of miles of intertwining trails and two tracks to be challenged. Thirty +- miles of beach to walk and enjoy.

The most fantastic star gazing you will ever enjoy.. NO LIGHT POLLUTION .. Peace and quiet at your beckon call. We could go on and on, but we think you get the idea.

Beautiful, Clean rental with lots of options

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Eagles Ridge from July 24th through the 31st, 2016. We were very pleased with the log home upon our arrival. It is beautiful, clean and we'll maintained. We had 8 adults and one 6 month old and it was very comfortable for us. The quiet master bedroom allowed the 6 mos old baby to maintain her sleep schedule, making for a great vacation for all. We were all surprised that the home was air conditioned and it came in handy on a couple of the unusually warm days on the island. The caretaker Kathy met us there to provide information on the island and all of the homes amenities (jeep, kayaks and canoe). We did not see her again until the morning we left, but we knew she was close by if we needed anything or if we just had a question. We were also impressed by the post stay interview to see if there was anything that they could add to make our stay (or future guests) more comfortable. They seem to have covered everything. We will stay here again.

Great cabin on Bob Lo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Eagle's Ridge! The cabin was very clean and comfortable for our week stay of 2 adults and 2 children age 12 and 7. Kitchen had everything we needed. Everyone was so helpful telling us where to go for our first visit to the island. The weather was perfect mid July. The kids loved the fire pit and exploring the woods around the cabin. We went swimming at Snow Beach for the soft sand every day and went to other beaches for rock collecting. We went fishing in Lake Huron with a guide and had a blast! Caught 11 huge Lake Trout and Steelhead trout. Cooked them up for supper and delicious! Everyone was super friendly. Hope to come back next summer! What a bummer to return to the hot humid weather of Tennessee !

Owner's Response: We love it when our guests are able to request some type of special activity such as Charter fishing. Kathy our manager, is an absolute whizz at helping our guests have a wonderful vacation at Eagle Ridge. So take note, when she calls to go over your final preparations for your trip. Ask what about this or can we do that etc.. Come, join the Eagle Ridge Family. You won't regret it.

Eagle Ridge on BBI

  • 5 of 5

I have been to the island before and on this trip I wanted to share my experience with friends and family. We needed a larger home and chose Eagle Ridge. The house was beautiful and spacious in a quiet, private location on the island. I highly recommend it. The island is a great place to visit. Everyone is so friendly. My kids have nicknamed the island "the waving island" because you can't pass anyone without waving. A great experience for anyone at any age.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We loved every second at Eagle Ridge. It was myself, my wife, my 8 year old son, 6 year old daughter and 5 month old son that stayed a week at the cabin. As soon as we got off the ferry we were welcomed by Kathy at the cabin. She was very helpful and explained everything to us. She said that if we ever needed anything just to give her a call and we did, as promised she helped us whenever needed. The island itself is so beautiful. It is quiet and relaxing. There are no sirens, people yelling, or hassles of city life. We felt so comfortable and safe on the island. No one asks questions about what you're doing, parking on the side of the road to get out and look at the lake is normal. We saw deer, frogs, fish, turtles, and rabbits. They have TVs at the cabin, but we never used them, there was always something to do. There were hardly ever cars on the dirt road which was very nice. If you happened to see another car on the road they would always wave to you in passing. Everyone is so friendly on the island. The drive on the north shore of the island is breath taking. We canoed on Twin Lakes and loved it. The biggest issues you could have on the island is having to stop for a turtle or duck family to cross the road. Or possibly a tree has fallen on the path. Those are very nice problems to have compared to accidents on a highway. There is no wifi or internet service unless you go to Hawks landing. That was the best part. No notifications from facebook or youtube. My phone died and I had no interest in charging it. With no phones the whole trip you can enjoy being in the moment and spending precious time with you family. Hawks landing has just about everything you may possibly run out of on your stay, and they do indeed have very yummy pizza. I miss the island so much after coming back to the city. I loved the slow pace of everyday life on the island. The cabin was beautiful. They had everything we could possibly need. We were told to live as if it was our home for the week and that we did. We felt right at home. The cabin was very clean and spacious, they even had a pack and play for my 5 month old son. We loved our stay very much and we most definitely plan on returning to eagle ridge next year.

Eagle Ridge Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place is a little piece of heaven on an island that is so peaceful. My husband and I spent a week at this cabin and couldn't have picked a better place from Anne the caretaker of the property to Steve the owner who takes time out of his own life to visit his vacationers, make this everything we could have dreamed about. The wildlife that we experienced was amazing, deer, coyote, turkeys, beavers, fish, rabbits, bats, the list goes on. We will definitely will be back next year. Thanks so much for sharing this with others. Sincerely, Diane

Glorious week in the wilderness

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Bob Lo Island after having spent the last week at Eagle Ridge lodge. It was an exciting week filled with explorations of the island in "General Woody" to inland lakes and forest trails. The local residents are beyond friendly and helpful and more welcoming than in any other vacation spot we have visited. We enjoyed the Museum and the information provided by the well-informed volunteer. We devoured the Pizza at Hawks Landing and chowed down on the burgers at the Tavern. After a wonderful day of crawling all over the island, we came back to a cozy, immaculate lodge with every amenity we could hope for. We ended our visit celebrating the Sabbath with the local folks at the Coast Guard Chapel. It was an uplifting experience. If you want to truly "get off the gird" Eagle Ridge is the place to go. (and if you have to have your Internet fix - it can be had at Hawkes Landing - but you may forget about that once you arrive !!) The manager gives you all the info you need upon your arrival and your host even drops in mid-week to see to your satisfaction. Great lodging, wonderful location, welcoming people - Utopia !!!

Owner's Response: Just an FYI, The " General "is the nickname for the Yellow jeep that is included with you stay at Eagle Ridge.. We have purchased a new inflatable boat, so now we have Canoe, 2 kayaks, and a Zodiak type boat for our guests to enjoy. ( Thank You Kevin) We actually should start charging a medical fee for staying at Eagle Ridge, or anywhere on Boblo for that matter. Your Blood pressure will drop significantly as you relax and enjoy natures many wonders on Bois Blanc Island.. Please , come join us.
