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!

Total relaxation !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a week on this island and I am not sure I can put down in words how much we enjoyed our stay. We brought along our two boxers and had some friends join us in the middle of the week. If you love peace and serenity this is definitely the place to go. It is a great fishing lake as well as there are many different types of fish to catch. You can catch the sunrise in the morning and sunset in the evening from one of the different look outs on the island or from the middle of the lake on a Kayak, canoe, paddle board or the pontoon. The week we went the lake was very quiet and peaceful felt like we were the only people in the area. I could go on and on about this place but I think you get the picture.If you are looking for total relaxation and a stress reducer this is the place for you. I will definitely be planning a trip back and I could see this becoming an annual adventure.

Our family of 9 had a wonderful stay at the island!!! Definitely recommend staying a whole week in order to enjoy the spirit of the island and to fully escape and recharge your batteries! There are countless activities to enjoy on the water or on the island and there are plenty of spots to sit and enjoy the view! This place is also a dog's paradise!!! Our dogs were more sad to leave than we were!!! We will definitely be back!!!!

So our wonderful children booked this weeks vacation as a gift for our 35th wedding anniversary.

Never spent a week on an island and it was just great! Cathy, Mike and Joe were a big help, the

weather was great, cabin and out buildings superb. Plenty of outdoor activities and a vista that looked

like paradise on earth! Hoping to be back there in the future!

Gorgeous property in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't capture the full spirit of this place. They don't show you all the fish your kids will catch right on the boulders at water's edge, the way the sunset layers through the clouds in poofs of gold, pink and violet, the way the fire dances on your marshmallows for S'mores or the peace you feel while kayaking around the 7 acre island with the clean scent of the lake surrounding you. And they definitely don't capture the complete darkness, silence and comfort in which you will sleep. We felt so rested and alive after our week at Zeron's Island.

The owner and manager were very receptive to our needs and questions. They even stopped out one day to make sure the kids had enough games to keep them busy and set up a Cornhole game and the ping-pong table for us. We liked that the island is run by solar power. The kitchen was fully stocked and there was plenty of seating inside and out for our party of 10. We really loved our week there and will return one day soon.

Get away from it all!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to our Shangri-La road weary, tired and hungry. Within minutes the cares began to slip away. We enjoyed many evenings by the fire pit making s'mores and iron pan cakes. It could not have been more relaxing. The views were awesome, beds were comfortable, house was cozy and had everything we needed for our stay. The kids camped on the lawn and when rare shower passed by, we sat on the porch and just relaxed. Can't wait to return!

6 star review!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot properly describe how awesome our experience was on Zeron's island! We had a bachelor party of 15 people and two dogs. There was ample room for lawn games and camping tents, plenty of room for the dogs to roam and the cottage was beautiful! The new solar panels provided enough power to run all the outside and inside lights plus a t.v. For some sports and the stereo played pretty much non stop. By the end of our stay it was quite clear there will be plans on a return visit next summer!

This is a one of a kind 7.5 acre island that is totally off the grid. It is powered by solar panels. It is high class luxury get away feel but not to far up north. 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!
