About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Kickapoo camp was the name of a small group of cabins at Kelly's Point years ago. We have saved this one room cabin by building a new, larger cabin completely over it, finishing the project in May 2010. If you enjoy history and retro furnishings this is the place for you. We have a completely furnished cabin, just bring your food and drink. This property is for sale and provides good rental income.

The cabin has huge windows with sweeping views of Lake Michigan and you will be mesmerized by the waves. Often, huge freighters pass and the ferry of course. You can use the binoculars to get a closer view or the telescope to see the mainland. The waterfowl love our shallow waterfront and swans often join the wide variety of birds. We have 250' of lakefront but no year-round neighbors so it is a very private 'getaway'.
It is a short bike ride or hike to the south end light house (open to the public) and Iron Ore Bay. There you will find lovely sand beach, picnic area, dunes, etc. There is a spring fed creek our grandchildren play in for hours. The sunrise and moonrise are both spectacular and you won't believe the stars you can see!! Enjoy the pace of the island and the solitude and peace of nature.
There is no phone or TV and cell service is often spotty at our cabin.

Explore two light houses on the island,many more to view by charter boat or small plane tours. Many history themes to explore; native american,Irish settlers, Mormon kingdom.More public beaches than you can see in a week,more wildlife than you can imagine! and very few people....


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Shaker and Lisa on East side drive during the first snow of December. We enjoy the island every season; maybe winter the most. The snow is so pristine. We are residents of NW Indiana and visit our children in GA and NC often. So we are on the go as much as we can be and still work ! Horses and carriage driving are our main hobbies and they travel with us from Beaver Island to Florida.

Why the Owner Chose Beaver Island, MI, USA:
When you see it you will know why

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Total peace and the beauty of nature will renew your spirit.
