  • Lovely Experience

    "Absolutely wonderful stay. We drank coffee (and mimosas!) on the deck looking out over Lake Michigan in the morning, canoed in the afternoon, built a campfire and cooked dinner near the beach in the evening. So much peace to be had here. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the gorgeous property, or our host, Jerry (Cathy was away when we visited, but she was very prompt with replies and, warm and friendly when conversing with me through e-mail). Jerry even let us use their house phone to make dinner reservations when we couldn't get cellular service. There are neighbors, but also a lot of privacy thanks to the trees and layout of the land, location of the deck and of the cottage. Plenty of nearby hiking, and if you need a store or restaurant, the hub of the island is about a 20 minute drive. The cottage is very cozy; if you are not coming alone, I would make sure you really like the person you are coming with! Fortunately I visited with my husband so it worked out ;) We both very highly recommend staying here, and will almost certainly be back. Hopefully sooner than later!"

  • Heavenly Haven

    "Summertime is the essence of "living easy." It is perfectly situated on the hillside for expansive views of the lake at day or moonlight, and for viewing the brilliant stars at night. The progressive levels of stairs to the lake allow for easy and safe access to the sandy beach below for both children and adults. Because our vacation dates coincided with the Supermoon and Perseid meteor shower, we had the glorious experience of watching both celestial events from this darkened stretch of earth! The sunrises were equally stunning. The house is really perfect in every way for privacy, lake access, sleeping, and just relaxation. The hammock and deck were well used - as were the fire pit, lawn chairs and kayak. We read, we watched Planet Earth DVDs, we played games and laughed, we cooked and ate leisurely dinners, and we slept (as others have stated) to the sounds of the waves breaking shore. We walked, waded, swam, and watched water fowl and snakes, which we especially enjoyed after reading the narratives of a local resident’s snake stories. The tennis courts in town were terrific (the backboard is solid and straight!), and the library was wonderful. It was (in every regard) a lovely, reinvigorating vacation, and can't imagine anyone not cherishing their time in this heavenly haven! Thank you, Kelly and Chris, for sharing your house and love for Beaver Island!"

  • Peace and Quiet!

    "My family and I rented this peaceful cottage in July and were delighted upon opening the door to see the cottage exactly as described. It is wonderfully decorated and we felt right at home especially since we could bring our furry family member. Visited Donegal Bay beach, Cable Bay beach and the lighthouse along with the beach at Iron Ore Bay. Our six year old daughter had a blast and hubby loved fishing lake Geneserath. People are so friendly and the area so beautiful we didn't want to come home. I missed waking up and falling asleep to the sound of waves when we returned home! Great place to find some quiet time with family and escape the noise of phones, tvs and computers-Loved it!"

  • Relaxing

    "We spent a lovely week in this charming, quiet cottage. The roads on Beaver Island are mostly not paved, but this cottage is located in an ideal spot and has a beautiful beach and view. If you are looking to leave a busy world for a while, this is the perfect place."

Beaver Island Travel Tips

Vacationing is Fun With Beaver Island Vacation Rentals

Beaver Island, located on scenic Lake Michigan, is the lake's largest island. It's been called "America's Emerald Island," and offers historical sites that detail early Irish immigration. The island also boasts beautiful landscapes that are reminiscent of Ireland itself. If you're looking for historical sites, however, Beaver Island is also home to an old "Mormon kingdom," where a revised version of the Mormon church (members called themselves the "Strangites") settled a temporary monarchy.

Enjoy Nature's Beauty With Affordable Beaver Island Lodging

Northeast Michigan lake houses will put you on the Beaver Island archipelago with easy access to more than a dozen gorgeous islands, like Garden Island, Hog Island, Gull Island, Shoe Island, and more. When you're vacationing for a day or two, or by yourself, the prices for hotels and rentals may seem comparable but over longer stretches of time or when traveling in large groups, the vacation rental is not only your more luxurious option – it's also more affordable. Your only difficult choice will be choosing between the luxury homes, Northeast Michigan lake houses, and other options when selecting your Beaver Island lodging.

Why Choose Beaver Island Vacation Rentals

You may feel stuck in the routine of staying at hotels for all of your vacations. While hotels have been the classic way of traveling, they are neither the best nor the cheapest option. When it comes to vacationing on Beaver Island, a vacation rental is the obvious choice. With accommodations that offer more privacy and quiet than any hotel, and at a better price, you will find your vacation to be far more peaceful. With amenities like home theater systems, full sized kitchens, king sized beds, and even hot tubs in many of the available rentals, you will find your vacation rental to be a home away from home.
