Property description

Relax and enjoy the view from one of the three decks offered at The Retreat on Drummond Island's beach front home. Overlooking Detour Passage, you will enjoy nature at its best. Watch the deer when they come down to the waterfront for a drink. With binoculars you might get a good look at Loon, Mink, Humming Birds, and Eagles. Great Lake freighters pass by daily, and Cruise Ships have been known to use the passage as well.

A private boat slip is included in your rental, so bring the boat! Minutes from Lake Huron, the passage features the Detour Reef Lighthouse. Built in the late 1840's, it is well preserved and a sight to remember. Excellent fishing is at your front door and thousands of acres of state land are available for hunting and hiking. The 'Retreat' offers three levels of living space with three private decks. For the kids (or kids at heart) there is Foosball and Air Hockey in the lower level. In the evening, enjoy a private campfire on the beach in one of the fire pits, you bring the marshmallows!

Drummond Island has shopping, restaurants, two golf courses, landing strip, grocery store, and more.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Working a lot in the retail field makes it easy to go north to get away form it all. Getting away from the rat race of every day living is what we enjoy the most. Set on the deck and watch the water and all that goes with it is wonderful and relaxing.

Why the Owner Chose Drummond Island:
We fell in love with the location. The veiw and the relaxing setting makes for a wonderful place to stay. It's always hard to go home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Late night is the greatest time for a dip in the hot tub. Relax and watch the lights of DeTour Village and the passing of a freighter is really neat to see! Gee, I can't wait to get back up their.
