Property description

Relax and get away from it all on Bois Blanc Island. Located in the Straits of Mackinac, ideal for those who desire a quiet serene escape to enjoy nature and watch the ships pass by. Surrounded by two acres of woods with a large rocky beachfront on Lake Huron, the only sounds you'll hear are those of the leaves rustling in the trees and the waves lapping on the shore. Swimming is available at your doorstep. Hiking and superb fishing at three inland lakes or on Lake Huron is an adventure. Bois Blanc Island is located minutes from Cheboygan where you'll catch the car ferry. Day trips to Mackinaw Island, Petoskey, Charlevoix or the Upper Peninsula are great options if you need a dose of civilization during your stay.

BR B Amenities: /B BR Two bedrooms (sleeps 6), fully equipped kitchen, refrigerator, stove, microwave, charcoal grill, TV, VCR, linens, towels, washer, dryer. Sorry, no smoking, no pets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Residing in Texas, the Cook's love spending time at their home away from home, Bois Blanc Island.

Why the Owner Chose Bois Blanc Island:
Karen grew up spending summers on Bois Blanc, so when we had children, we wanted them to get to know the Island. The boys, like their parents have come to love and appreciate Bois Blanc with all its unique discoveries. We look forward all winter to spending our summers on the Island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The privacy of Cook Cottage is what first attracted us to this property. The cottage is set away from the road, when we don't want to see or hear civilization, this is the perfect spot. The east end of the Island has beautiful sunrises and is close to Mary's Lake and trails for discovery. The beautiful view from the cottage down to Lake Huron provides an excellent view of wildlife including eagle, deer and the like. The cottage is bright and cheerfully decorated with a lighthouse decor. Nights spent viewing the Milky Way from our beach front is uniquely spectacular, as we don't have the light pollution from the mainland. Awesome!!
