Come, stay on Bois Blanc Island, known by the locals as Bob Lo Island, 24,000 acres of relaxing “nature’s Paradise.” and 30 miles of shoreline.

Your vacation to Eagle Ridge starts when you get on the ferry operated by Plaunt Transportation (888 752 8687 ) departing from Cheboygan Michigan heading on the 45 min trip to the Island. During the Ferry ride, the true remote nature of the Island begins to set in. Once you arrive on the Island, we suggest that you stop at Hawks landing and claim you free ice cream cone for the the kids before you head just a short 6.8 mile drive from the dock to Eagle Ridge, for the start of your Island Adventure. The cabin sleeps 10, with a master suite downstairs and 4 sets of bunk beds in the upstairs loft that is divided into two areas with a bathroom in between.. There is a full bath on each floor, and a beautifully ceramic tiled fully furnished kitchen ( WITH 2 full size REFRIGERATORS ) for all the food you will bring for your relaxing week on the Island. Don't have to bring extra ice chests for you food. The main floor offers a family room with vaulted ceilings, TV, and leather seating. Additionally on the main floor, is a family dining area, screened/glassed in porch (no bugs).

For outdoor activities, we provide as they would say at 'LL Bean' a wickedly nice open porch and deck area with ample seating including two round tables with umbrellas, without a doubt the absolutely most fantastic and unforgettable star gazing you will ever experience ( NO LIGHT POLLUTION ), a Gas grill,) campfire pit, fire wood, and close beach access. You will listen to the waves crash all night long..

Since you don't want to get you car all scratched up, we provide an old Jeep Liberty ( as a courtesy, NOT part of you rental.. No pets in the jeep please..If the jeep breaks down, remember it is a courtesy only ..If available you are welcome to use it ) and 2 Mountain Bikes to help you explore the many different areas on the Island. This is the perfect way to see some of the more remote parts of the island that would be difficult to get to otherwise. A Canoe with motor and two Kayaks are there for your use, on the 'Big Lake' or one of the really neat inland lakes.

While the Island is quite remote by mainland' standards, all of your needs can be met without leaving the Island. There is a restaurant/general store that also sells gasoline and has Fantastic Pizza. There is a bar that serves food, as well. For those of you that just can't be without INTERNET service, the general store/restaurant offers free Wi-Fi service as long as you are participating as a customer. ( If you have a cell phone with Internet,it will work at Eagle Ridge on the porch )

Most visitors spend the day exploring the wilderness of the island; swimming, hiking, boating, fishing, and enjoying what the island has to offer. The perfect way to wind down is to relax in the cabin, perhaps admiring the true log cabin structure of Eagle Ridge, like the locally sourced handrail on the staircase, and sharing your day's experiences with others in the cabin. As your vacation ends, and you are on the Ferry back to the mainland, you will find that you will be eager to return to 'The Island' and Eagle Ridge.

Keywords: Rustic Log Cabin with all the amenities you could ask for. Including, Jeep Liberty, 2 Kayaks, 1 canoe, 2 mountain bikes for exploration, washer/dryer, (High resolution Photos compliments of J. Batdorff.)

About: Steve, AKA ' Uncle Steve ' has been coming to Bois Blanc Island for the past 15 plus years. So when he decided to retire from Ferris State University in 2003, he decided to take on a log home Dealership. Well when you sell log homes you need a demo home right ? Hold on, loving wife of 45 plus years has to buy into this concept of being away from home all summer on a beautiful island.. Not a hard sell. Eagle Ridge was built in 2006 and has been enjoyed ever since. Kyu Hui, pronounced Q-He, (brains of the outfit) was in charge of all the furnishings and ceramic tile work that went into Eagle Ridge... She is a stickler for detail and picky picky. We love sharing Eagle Ridge with families that enjoy the pristine nature of Bois Blanc Island AKA Bob-Lo

Why Bois Blanc Island, MI, USA:
Bob Lo is Heaven on Earth... Need we say more..

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Twenty four thousand acres of undisturbed State land to explore. Four large inland lakes to enjoy, Hundreds of miles of intertwining trails and two tracks to be challenged. Thirty +- miles of beach to walk and enjoy. The most fantastic star gazing you will ever enjoy.. NO LIGHT POLLUTION .. Peace and quiet at your beckon call. We could go on and on, but we think you get the idea.
