Bois Blanc Island house 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.
