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 24' pontoons is provided with the rental for the week for your transportation to and from the Island 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.

Relaxation at it’s best

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing, “unplugged” week on Surgeon Island. Beautiful views and crystal clear waters. Our family played on the water the entire week. Fort Drummond Marine has everything you need for fun and sun. The house is just the right combination of nostalgia and amenities. We felt right at home.

So much to do, see, and explore on Drummond Island and the UP

If you are looking for a way for your family to relax and re-connect, this is definately the place to do it . Our four teen-age children all said this was the best vacation ever!

What a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and very comfortable. Blaine was very accommodating for all our needs. Since it was early in the season the water in the bay was too cold for swimming although we did do some jet skiing and kayaking. No bugs or snakes. IT was very peaceful. Our dogs loved it and we didn't have to worry about the dogs wondering off.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. The setting is relaxing and peaceful hope to see you again soon. The late spring season we had has kept the water temperature down a bit more then usual hopefully you can come again in July or August or September when water temps are a bit warmer for your water sports activities.

Beautiful, Relaxing and Fun!!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to enjoy the best vacation you've ever had, you have to stay on Surgeons Island. The cabin has all the amenities of home on a private island minutes away from shopping, restaurants and outdoor activities. This is a family run business that really cares about their property. We love boating, fishing, hiking, riding ATV's, shopping and dining at excellent restaurants . If you're looking for a similar experience, you owe it to your family to get to Drummond Island and stay on a private island away from everyone and look out over Lake Huron.

Owner's Response: I am very glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you stay again soon in the future. We love the property and the area as well and feel it is unique and try to have amenities but yet then leave it for the most part in its natural setting. We hope you are having a great fall and winter season and we appreciate your review. Take care thanks Blaine

Great Family experience and wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This will be our 3rd year going to this Drummond location. It has everything a family would need. And if it isn't there, the owners will do everything to get it for you. The house is just liked someone left and took nothing lol. Quiet, secluded, home on it's own island. Comes with a pontoon boat and everything except food. We will be there again this June for our family outing, fishing, barbecuing, boating, and exploring. If you like the wilderness, water, wildlife and quiet atmosphere, this place is for you. We love it and will go as long as we can. Definitely worth it. Clean, sleeps 6 comfortably, and the owners couldn't be nicer.

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.

If you chose this option it can be paid for at marina upon arrival. The pet fee is for additional cleaning time due to pet hair etc. you are welcome to bring pets but you are responsible for them and any damage caused by them. We ask you abide by check in and out times unless other arrangements are made so that we can get our cleaning and maintenance done and make sure things are ready for incoming guests. Most people have been good about trying to leave the rental and island in similar shape to how they found it and we encourage that it is helpful when needing to get things done on an island with limited time between check out and check in so that is greatly appreciated.
