About the property

All new, 1 bedroom studio apartment. Canoe for use on Font Lake.

Beautiful, comfortable, bright and relaxing 1 bedroom apartment on north end of the island. Very clean and comfortable. All new construction. solid hickory floors throughout. Queen bed in bedroom with a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchen has everything you need for living at home (except a dishwasher.) The apartment is located above our garage and has a separate entrance and balcony. Enjoy being outdoors using your own fire pit, gas grill and use of our canoe on Font Lake (which you can walk to.) You are a short walk away from lake Michigan where you can take in the sunrise and sunset. About a 12 minute bike ride from town and the amazing beach at Donegal bay.

There is bike rental, kayak rental, paddle board rental in town by the public beach.

Let us know if you would like to rent one of our cars for an additional $50/day while you are here. We have a GMC Terrian in great condition but dusty due to the gravel roads.

We have a washer and dryer in our home that you can use when needed. Make the Upper Room your home while you stay on Beaver Island.

About Bryan and Becca Foli

We choose to live on the island as there is no other place in the world that brings us peace and happiness. Bryan teaches chemistry, physics and french at the school. Becca works at the community center when she isn't out dancing or taking pictures.

Bryan and Becca Foli purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Bryan and Becca Foli chose Beaver Island

We love our location; close to town and at the same time away from it all. No one comes out this way unless they are lost or visiting. You can here the waves from the porch and are a short walk to the rocky shore for sunrise.

What makes this apartment unique

Beaver Island is a destination. you come here to get away from it all. It is very rustic. Getting to Beaver Island: The first stop is Charlevoix, MI, a Lake Michigan harbor city located approx 250 miles north of Detroit. You can also fly into Pelston or Traverse City airports and connect to Beaver Island Ferry or Island Airways in Charlevoix. From Charlevoix take a quick 20 minute flight or the 2 hour leisurely ferry ride on the Emerald Isle. Either way, it's an amazing adventure!

They are incredibly friendly and respectful of our privacy while also being welcoming. The space is very well built. We loved it! But you need a vehicle to enjoy the island.

Great Getaway on Beaver Island

  • 5 of 5

Bryan and Becca were very welcoming. The car rental was a plus. Their place was very clean, recently remodeled and they had the best smelling sheets and towels... made it feel homey. Beaver Island is a beautiful, special place. We'd love to come back!

Brian and Becca are very kind and accomadating. The apartment is very cute and just the right size for 2-4 people. It's a beautiful 2 mile walk into town or there's a shuttle on Beaver Island that will take you anywhere you want to go for $2.

Clean, comfortable, lovely

  • 4 of 5

Beaver Island is a peaceful, natural place to ride bikes and do small hikes through dune forests to unspoiled bays and beaches. While this property is not waterfront, it is conveniently located near town, Font lake, and northwest beach. We really liked the apartment, porch, and homeowner.

Beaver Island is a unique rustic island 32 miles off the coast of northern Michigan. Over the years the island has become our favorite vacation place. In 2016 we decided we needed to live here so we could experience the magic of the island 24/7. Come to Beaver Island and you will forget everything except happiness.
