Why The Owner chose Drummond

Outstanding views with setting view changing through out the day with nature and beauty all a round. A great place to unwind and recharge and have privacy, peace and tranquility with out all the hustle and bustle of everyday life which is just a short boat ride 5-10 minutes to Drummond Island for that if you so choose.

What makes this house unique

A basic 24' pontoons is provided with the rental for the week for your transportation to and from the Island from the marina landing and is your to use as you wish during your stay (you pay for gas/oil as required). The area and setting make this very unique along with the fact you have your own private island to yourself because it is the only dwelling on the island with beautiful accommodations and a very inviting peaceful natural setting.

Everything was great. Our grown children and their spouses and our 16 month grandson loved it

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the property allowed us to take the 3 dogs. They probably had the most fun. Able to run free and swim. Very picturesque. Not many can say they have a whole island to themselves. Owners and staff do a great job. Highly recommend.

Peaceful & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! We were surprised to find spacious and luxurious accommodations, with so many amenities like at home. Kitchen was stocked with pots and pans, and even cleaning supplies. We enjoyed bonfires, boating, kayaking, wildlife, and swimming. The only thing we wished we could find was a hair dryer! The host family was welcoming and helpful.

Owner's Response: They were greats guest glad to have them come visit and hope they come back in the future. The place was left very tidy which makes us happy and helps with cleaning turn around time. Easy to deal with as guests- we will try to get a hair dryer or two out there had we known or been asked we would have been happy to let them borrow one. Hope to see them in the near future.

Great Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Surgeons Island is a one of a kind destination.

Your own private island!

A pontoon boat is part of the rental, which is a bonus for your stay and a necessity to get to and from the island. The atmosphere of the island is so relaxing. There are walking trails from one end of the island to the other. Nature is everywhere. We have seen loons, ducks, geese and sandhill cranes. Some mornings there will be deer on the island and you can watch them swim back to the main island. You can sit in the morning sun on the east shore or deck. In the afternoon you can move to the boat dock for more sunshine and stay for a beautiful sunset.

The cabin has all the amenities you need, refrigerator, freezer, washer and dryer, grill.

The dining room table is a great place for gathering in the evenings, whether just visiting or playing a game.

The enclosed sunroom/porch is a wonderful place for morning coffee.

There are two full bathrooms, three bedrooms and a pull out couch in the living room.

The best thing I can tell you is, our family has stayed here many times. We've always had a good time, rain or shine. Fort Drummond Marine and Surgeons Island has a special place in our hearts.
