About the property

Spend an idyllic week – or more – at this lovely cottage on coveted Snow Beach. The cottage is nestled in the forest, but walk out the door and you are on the path to paradise. Enjoy your morning coffee in the Adirondack chairs watching the spectacular sunrises, or sip your coffee while strolling the beach listening for the haunted cry of the loon and seeing what the waves brought in overnight. Days spent at the beach can be anything you choose but it will be an experience like no other. Whether you choose to float peacefully or play vigorously in the clear Lake Huron water, or relax in a lounge chair and watch the freighters pass, Snow Beach will delight and restore you. The island boasts numerous hiking trails to explore; several historic sites; a six-mile bike ride or drive will take you to the north shore where Mackinac island and the Mackinac bridge can be viewed, along with a pebbly beach where beach glass has been known to be found. There are three inland lakes for fishing - Lake Mary has a beautiful dock with benches so non-fishermen can be included in the fun.

Evenings at Snow Beach are magical: watch the deer strolling the beach at dusk; after dinner build a campfire and marvel at the night sky; fall asleep to the soothing call of Poe Reef Light, which can be seen from the cottage.

The airy cottage is decorated in a pastel nautical theme with a well-appointed kitchen and bathroom with a stand-up shower. There is a collection of books on the Great Lakes and Bois Blanc Island history, and several games and puzzles are available for your enjoyment. There is also a TV with DVD player and a limited collection of movies. No Wi-Fi at the cottage but the the general store, Hawks Landing, does offer Wi-Fi for customers.

Snow Beach is Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

The cabin at Snow Beach is very pleasant. The owner's representation of the property was accurate and she was easy to work with. The on-site property manager met us on our arrival and was available for any questions we had during our stay. Bois Blanc Island is quiet, peaceful, remote, and sparsely developed. Fill your vehicle with fuel and cooler with food before you arrive. Bring bikes and kayaks and any other toys you'll need. Be sure to use the beach, a rare sandy beach on Lake Huron. Be sure to participate in activities at the museum/library and the Park and Rec events in the Hoover Community Building.

We loved the beach and the cottage had everything that we needed!! We swam everyday....all day. The wildlife was incredible and abundant. Fishing at Lake Mary was super fun and we saw a giant snapping turtle. Can’t wait to go back next year!!!

Beautiful views, in a quiet, serene & very relaxing environment.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it here. The cottage was quaint, comfortable and enough amenities to make our stay fun and comfortable. We cooked, grilled, enjoyed coffee on the beach in the morning, & smores at night with a campfire.

Being able to bring our kayaks, and leave them on the beach, walk out in the morning, and just have fun without leaving the property was incredible. Especially with varying age ranges in kids (from 5-19) they all found something to do, and the little guy could run up to the house when he needed to for bathroom breaks, snacks or a quick rest.

My husband and I could watch the sunrise peacefully by ourselves in the early morning, and enjoy the late evening breeze and stars after the kids were in bed without feeling the need to be stuck inside.

So many fun things to do there also, Movie night Monday, Taco Tuesday & Square Dancing were some highlights, and the sunset and view of Mackinac Bridge on the other side of the island was amazing.

We will definitely be back!
