About the property

1700 square foot home 3 bedrooms 1.5 bath

This beautiful lake front home with 110 ft of Lake Michigan frontage offers (1) king & (2) Queen beds. This property is an excellent vacation home for adventurists and nature lovers.The island has an abundance of nature trails for walking or biking. Lake Michigan's crystal clear water makes it feel like you are in the Caribbean without the expense of getting there. Beaver Island also has a very large wildlife population, which can be seen from the comfort of the home. Some other activities on the Island can be found through the Beaver Island Chamber of Commerce such as (fishing charters, scuba lessons, jet ski rentals and many others).

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with Beaver Island because it is like going back in time to a much simpler life style. Materialistic things don't really seem to matter on the island. When we vacation there ourselves time is not an important part of the day.

Great location on Beaver Island.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Trate's Retreat. The house is clean and well-equipped. There is plenty to do outdoors, including using the pedal boat, kayak and canoe that come with the house. It is within easy biking distance to nice beaches and the lighthouse.

The house was awesome. Beautiful views and a good fit for our five and one year olds.

  • 5 of 5

We loved how secluded the property was and it had everything we needed. The beach at the house was pretty dirty, this may have been from a big storm that rolled through the day we got there. There was a great beach for the kids that we spent a lot of time at five minutes past the house. Overall we were very happy with our vacation choice and hope to return in the future.

Get away vacation

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a place that is "unplugged" from the world this is the place for you. We enjoyed the laid back island, but was not a fan of the snakes that dominated the beach. The place was clean & neat when we arrived.
