About the Property
Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-6)
Getting to Beaver Island: The first stop is Charlevoix, MI, a Lake Michigan harbor city located approx 250 miles north of Detroit. You can also fly into Pelston or Traverse City airports and connect to Beaver Island Ferry or Island Airways in Charlevoix. From Charlevoix take a quick 20 minute flight or the 2 hour leisurely ferry ride on the Emerald Isle. Either way, it's an amazing adventure!
When you arrive on the island you will find a place that will take you back in time. Slow, patient, friendly and Beautiful! You might want to stop at the Shamrock for a beverage after the ferry ride or take the scenic 20 minute drive straight out to Eagle's Rest. Distance is measured by time on the Island, most of the roads have not been paved...it's just another way to make you slow down!
When you reach Eagle's Rest the drive in is through a wooded pathway into a vast open area with scattered trees along the perimeter. Eagle's Rest was first built in 2004 with the original cabin. It has since been added on to with a larger additional cabin with a lovely connector. It is very charming, with spectacular views of Lake Michigan and High Island. It has a great front porch, screened in rear porch and large rear decks overlooking the lake. All furnishings are new or local antiques. Eagle's Rest has an outdoor shower with cold and hot running water. It is the renter's responsibility to bring their own sheets and towels. Eagle's Rest has a charming decor with an open layout which includes 33 large Anderson windows, many are floor to ceiling overlooking Lake Michigan. There is 1 large loft with single beds and a bedroom with a queen bed. The main floor has a comfortable pull out couch. It's perfect for a family of 4-6. There is some minor construction going on in the bathroom of the unit, an unfinished soaking tub.
You may enjoy a good book overlooking Lake Michigan, take a swim in the clear lake water, explore the island and over 100 miles of roads and trails, kayak using the 2 kayaks provided, go for a bike ride using the 2 bikes provided, fish on one of the 5 inland lakes, roast marshmallows in the fire pit on the beach, admire the vast array of stars, discover some of the other islands in the Archipelego, visit the spa for a massage, play nine at the Beaver golf course, lounge on the patio, cocktails at Nina's, Donnegal Bay to enjoy the sunset, visit the CMU Biological center, or the 2 lighthouses on the island, Little Sand Bay, Iron Ore Bay or simply do Nothing! This is a vacation you will never forget and leave feeling truly rested.
