Property description

Conveniently located, standing tall and overlooking Lake Huron and its beauty, Top o’ the Rock provides guests with 3 stories of comfort. We are currently scheduling guests for the 2015 Spring, Summer and Fall seasons. Come feel the warmth and love that was built into this home. Top o’ the Rock boasts 4 bedrooms including sleeping loft, 2 living rooms, dining room, 2.5 bathrooms, large kitchen, and 3 stories of decks overlooking Lake Huron. From the 3rd floor Captain's quarters to Snow Beach, the Top o' the Rock experience will bring enjoyment for a quiet get away or a family reunion. View the freighters from the Captains Quarters or decks from each of the floors. The ferry ride from Cheboygan starts the Bob-Lo experience.

Walk to the waterfront for swimming and boating. New kayaks and adult bicycles are stored on site, for touring the island on land or sea. A three person boat is being added for Lake Huron enjoyment.

The ground floor of Top o’ The Rock conveniently hosts all of your entertaining needs. Modern kitchen, large dining area (seats 10), living area with large flat screen TV for your viewing pleasure, half bath, laundry services, and even a lighthouse on the deck; all serve to complete the first floor.

The second floor provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere for games, conversation, reading or just taking a nap. The living room with its 2 seating areas and wet-bar, bedroom and full bathroom are encapsulated by 12” walls, providing guests with the rustic Adirondack charm that can only be found in uniquely crafted log homes. Guests will note the owners love for the sea as they experience nautical artifacts and symbols throughout. Decks and comfortable furniture surround the East and Southern sides of the home, and the second floor deck has been screened in for insect free living.

The third floor stands taller than any other Boblo home, and has breathtaking views of Lake Huron from its deck. The deck is also the perfect place to view wildlife, passing ships and nature at its best. The sliding doors provide walls of glass in the final 2 bedrooms. The full bath and sleeping loft open to a 2 story view with vaulted ceiling and, of course, nautical charm at every corner. The evening ferry canal lights of Cheboygan in the distance provide nautical ambience.

Top o’ The Rock is known for its palatial size and bright red roof, which can be seen on clear days from the Cheboygan ferry channel. Nicknamed “Pizza Hut” by Cheboygan tourists spotting the red roof in the distance, Top o’ the Rock is waterfront property that provides swimming and boating pleasures that guests prefer. The island provides boating rentals and public launch facilities; contact information can be provided to interested guests.

Access the website through the VRBO link. The lease will be emailed to interested families/groups. Please contact us for prices if your group wishes to stay less than a full week.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My husband and I wish to retire in the area, and until that time, we wish to have others share in the joy of Bois Blanc Island. The house was built for us by a relative who paid attention to detail in every aspect of this gorgeous home. The inspiration came from a dream to retire on the water and was designed on a bar napkin at Hawk's Landing.

Why the Owner Chose Bois Blanc Island:
Lake Huron is spectacular, and provides the calm and serenity of the ocean experience. The Ferry and Boblo's people complete the experience.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is waterfront, which provides the complete island experience for your family and guests. This log home was uniquely designed, and the 2 story living room is spectacular. This home is walking and biking distance to restaurants and the ferry, and the beach is the end of the driveway! Nature is found in the backyard, as the orchard nearby draws the deer and wildlife. The walking trails were created for the explorers in the group.
