Drummond Island house description
Relax and enjoy the view from one of Drummond Island's newest homes. 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 maybe even 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.

Our stay was fantastic. The house is wonderful, spacious, clean with wonderful amenities. Our four teenagers had a great time on the dock, beach and kayaking. We will definitely be back!

The Retreat was a great place to spend a week of vacation. The Retreat certainly lived up to the description and all the amenities were as advertised. I highly recommend.

A great place to unwind.
A great place to unwind.
We had 8 adults and 2 kids and found the house to be very accomodating for all. The house was just as nice as pictured and was very clean and comfortable. The water is very nice and we enjoyed the fire ring every night. The whole atmosphere of the island is laid back and relaxing if you are looking to get away from the whole "tourist" hustle that most places have. We also enjoyed the atv trails, the fossil ledges, and even rented a fishing boat for a day for a very resonable price. I would recommend this place to anyone. We drove all over the island and didn't see a single place we would have traded for.

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.

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.
