About Manager - Joe Ogg

My name is Chad and I was born and raised in South East MI. I have owned and operated my own business since I was 17 years old. I purchased Zeron's Island back in 2005. When I first bought it there was no standing structures besides one wall of the now standing bunk house/Tiki Chad's that was the original wall of the cabin built 40-50 years ago. We enjoyed the island for a year or so just to camp out at and hang on the lake for holiday weekends. After enough camping I started building the main log cabin on the island. Once that was completed I built another building that has a outdoor accessible bathroom and garage door that is also used as a bar and storage place as well as spare sleeping arrangements. I also did a beautiful landscape job the next summer and sea wall the summer after that. This has been a great experience for my family, friends and I. We loved it so much that after one summer of not being able to enjoy it as much as we would have like we decided to start letting other people enjoy it for vacations, reunions and things of that sort so they can see what we've enjoyed for years and to make as many enjoyable memories as we had. It truly is one of a kind and a great place to go and get away from everyday life.

Manager - Joe Ogg purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Manager - Joe Ogg chose Northern Michigan

Ever since I was a little kid I had a long shot dream of owning my own island and back in 2005 I was able to make that dream a reality. After about a year of owning Zeron's Island I started construction on what I had always envisioned in my dreams which was to build an up north paradise. I first started by refurbishing the original cabin that was constructed on the island back in the early 1900's and I tried to make it as original as it once was. Once that was finished construction started on the main cabin. It took a long year and a half or so to build it as it was quite the task to get all my materials and supplies taken to the island by boat/barge as well as crossing the lake on the ice in the winter time. Once construction was completed I felt like I had finally accomplished my life long dream. We loved it so much that we couldn't get enough time to spend there with all of my friends and family. We had an epic time on the island, whether it was the long holiday weeks in the summer to enjoy the fireworks on the lake with large groups of friends or just a quick three day weekend get away with my family, we couldn't get enough of it. After years of continues parties, memories, and fun it got harder and harder to find the time to enjoy it as much as we would have liked. So a few years ago I decided that I would like to share my dream with other families and groups of friends to create their own memories of island fun as I did for so long. Our first year the island was open to the public was in 2012 and to no surprise it was a huge success. We've had guests from all over the country come and stay with us and every group has reported back to us of how much fun they had and enjoyed spending time on our own little piece of island paradise. Since then we have had plenty of return renters and new ones. Every year the island get nicer with more fun things added to it for renters to enjoy. From our new solar panel power system to our brand new pontoon boat it is 1 of a kind

What makes this cabin unique

I fell in love with this property the minute I saw it. I knew it had a lot of potential and would eventually be a great vacation spot for me and my family. There are such great sunsets views there and is really cool that the only way to get the cabin is by a boat ride. Once the outside landscaping was complete I knew the island was finally completed and my dream had come true. It is my paradise away from home and I am happy to now let others enjoy it too!

There is also place on the water to enjoy dinner and activity at a Resort just a 5-10 minute boat ride away that has activities and food and bar. There is also a small putt-putt and ice cream and coney shop on the other end of the lake. If you want a totally nice different expierence at a wonderful paradise off of the grid, this is the place for you that has over a mile long hiking trail and a couple look out points through out the island.It has a nice sandy beach for the kids to play and swim at. Once you see it and stay there I think everyone will want to come back again for another visit as a lot of our guests do!

Amazing Island on beautiful Sage Lake

  • 5 of 5

This 7.5 acre island has everything to offer for any getaway. Whether it's for you and your spouse, the whole family or a girls/guys trip, this is an awesome place to unwind and soak up the sun. Views of the sunset and sunrise are perfect! This was my 2nd time here for a bachelor party and next year we'll be going for a couples weekend! I'm always excited to spend time on Zerons Island.

Amazing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place as a celebration for myself and friends graduating. We ended up having 18 people and a couple dogs there for the weekend and rented the $200 boat. It was everything advertised and more. The boat was fueled up at the dock waiting for us, and was in great shape. We enjoyed taking it out on the water, cruising around, and swimming off of it. In addition, the island had three paddleboards, four kayaks, and a canoe. The water in Sage Lake was very warm and clear so we took full advantage. There was also very low boat traffic, which was great. Maybe a dozen pontoons and a couple wake boats all of Saturday.

The Island itself was perfect. The main cabin was very bright and clean, and the outdoor space was amazing. We ended up setting up a ton of lawn games (cornhole and a volleyball net were provided) on the big grassy field and spent all day outside. It was so relaxing to have the whole island to ourselves. The outdoor grill was a favorite, which we used every day.

Like I said, we had 18 people and had no trouble sleeping everyone. Beds were full, some grabbed couches, some camped, and some found floor space in the small cabin. It all worked perfectly.

Last, Joe was a fantastic property manager. He was extremely responsive and always available for communication. I appreciated working with him to book this place and would come back to Zeron’s Island without hesitation. Thank you Joe for a great stay!

"Best Vacation Ever"

  • 5 of 5

We weren't on the island but a couple of hours and our children declared this the "best vacation ever". It can be very hard to satisfy all 3 children, ages 16, 12 and 10, with the same thing at the same time, but at Zeron's Island we accomplished just that. With the exception of one rainy day and some spotty showers another, we spent the majority of our week outside. Even enjoying the fire pit until late at night. The stars were amazing. We all learned to paddle board and loved it. We enjoyed taking the pontoon out and especially the kayaks, even our YorkiePoo enjoyed kayaking. We also had family join us for four days. With 10 people in one house, it could have felt crowded but we were outside so much that it didn't and it slept all of us comfortably. The house was clean and comfortable. We don't often want to go vacation at the same place twice, but we left Zeron's Island wanting to go back. It was a great getaway spot.

Great Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place -- the lake is clean and clear. The cabin is so nicely decorated, has just what you need to feel comfortable and at home. The bonfire pit by the shore is wonderful to kick back and relax at night. Kayaks, a canoe, paddle boards and the pontoon boat awaited every day, encouraging even the novices to try them out! Really felt pampered by the beauty and serenity -- since we weren't a large crowd we actually took time to unwind and just enjoy nature, put up a hammock, grab a book, relax in the quiet which is so hard to find in this busy world! Mike & Cathy (the housekeepers) were very friendly and helpful, and we met several locals who pulled up to the shallows behind the island to hang out. The manager, Joe, answered all my questions and was great to deal with. Aside from the fact that we wanted to stay forever, and couldn't -- it was wonderful!
