Cheboygan estate description

This 1870’s Victorian is the perfect place to have a family reunion! Originally the estate of a local Lumber Baron, it is beautifully restored to accommodate today's visitor. Spacious rooms, white wicker chairs on a gracious wrap-around porch, a fire pit on the beach, 200+ feet of private beachfront, horseshoe pits, acres of lawn and beautiful flower gardens - all yours to enjoy for the week. Take in a play at the restored Opera House, visit historic sites, take the ferries to historic Mackinac Island (16 miles) or secluded Bois Blanc Island (2 miles), sail the Straits of Mackinac, cruise the 30-mile-long Inland waterway, bike the new Cheboygan to Mackinaw or Gaylord trails. Or watch the sunset from your own beach, read a book on the front porch, throw rocks in the water, gather driftwood, build a bonfire, watch the stars come out. This will be a truly unique experience, one you'll want to enjoy again and again.


Things to do Onsite - Outdoors:
There are horse shoes hanging on the back of the horse shoe pits.
In the garage: Bocce Ball game, Ladder Ball game and darts
Feel free to bring your own volleyball or croquet game.
The Fire pit is on the Beach. There are benches around it for seating, but feel free to take the white plastic chairs from the garage down to the beach for more seating. Also there are roasting forks hanging in the garage for hotdogs, marshmallows and s'mores. Yum!

Bring water shoes if you want to go in the water – rocks and shoreline stuff. There are some water shoes in the coat closet. If they fit, feel free to use them, but leave them outside when you leave so we know to wash them.

Watch out for the poison ivy in the unmown areas.


Things to do Onsite - Indoors:
Cards, dice, cribbage and dominos – in the bottom of the old Victrola
Jigsaw puzzles, Board Games & kids toys – in closet under the oak staircase
Videos – VCR – under the TV in the Library
Books - on bookshelves in the Library
