BEAVER ISLAND PRIVATE RETREAT

Escape to an unspoiled natural environment, an Island that has been protected from the influences of modernization by its unique situation of ”being an Island” surrounded by the pristine waters of Lake Michigan.
There are seven inland lakes for leisurely fishing, Bass, Pike etc. A golf course, biking, or walk on the beach, go for a swim, roast hot dogs and marshmallows on an open fire, have a spa and marvel at the stars which shine so brilliantly without the outside distraction of city lights. Visit neighboring uninhabited Islands or just lay back and do nothing. Cocktails and sunsets go well together! Good restaurants and nightlife in the village pubs is also an option.
The most convenient embarkation point is Charlevoix. Twenty minute flights are available or a leisurely two hour ferry ride on the ‘Emerald Isle’. The ‘Emerald Isle’ will also carry your automobile, if required. With this location an automobile is not a necessity. If required for sightseeing, cars, scooters bikes etc., are all available for rent. (There are five or six bikes available at the house for your use) The Island is located approximately 250 miles from Detroit and a bit more from Chicago. On arrival at the Island you will find a place that takes you back in time, slow, peaceful and beautiful. Time slows down, the most distant point is a leisurely stroll or a drive through mainly unpaved roads…the Island’s way of saying, take your time. Slow down, you’re here.
The house itself is beautifully situated on a large Island property, surrounded by towering shade trees. This contemporary two-storey home has five spacious bedrooms (sleeps 10 comfortably) and three designer bathrooms. The property is located on the back road, which offers a modicum of seclusion but still having the advantage of being within walking distance to restaurants, bars and amenities (including the ferry terminal) and of course, the beach.
You have delightful lake views from downstairs and from the large bedroom and deck upstairs.
Upstairs is self-contained in the fact that it has a kitchenette complete with fridge and breakfast facilities.
There are also spacious surrounding decks upstairs and down. The entire ground floor is tiled with Mexican Terracotta tiles imported from Saltillo Mexico, all under floor heated with a large living room and brand new kitchen fitted with stainless steel appliances and induction cook top. (cooking utensils provided) The kitchen bar seats eight and the dining room has a large rustic Mexican dining table seating twelve.
The house is fully furnished with Mexican Mission Viejo furniture and there is a new state-of-the-art LCD, TV, DVD and surround sound system. Wi-Fi Internet connection is also provided. There is a separate laundry room, (linen provided) and a large outdoor table setting which also seats twelve. For those long summer nights don’t forget there is a stainless steel outdoor BBQ. The living room/kitchen is a large open plan area with a formidable sized L-Shaped lounge opening to the surrounding wooden deck. (perfect for entertaining).
This is the ideal location for a large family group or four or five couples or a group of friends. Just bring your ‘let’s have some fun’ attitude and some food and drinks – everything else is here waiting for you.

IF YOU ONCE HAVE SLEPT ON AN ISLAND

If once you have slept on an Island

You'll never be quite the same;

You may look as you looked the day before

and go by the same old name.

You may bustle about in street and shop;

You may sit at home and sew,

But you'll see blue water and wheeling gulls

Whereever your feet may go.

You may chat to the neighbors of this and that;

And close to your fire keep,

But you'll hear ship whistle and lighthouse bells,

and tides beat-through your sleep.

Oh, you won't know why, and you can't say how;

Such things upon you came,

But once you have slept on an Island

You'll never be quite the same!

About: I was born on Beaver Island in the little green coloured house behind the current house. We moved another house and attached it to the original, making the house quite large and comfortable. It was completely refurbished in 2011

Why Beaver Island, MI, USA:
Although refurbished, this is our original family home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is like coming home-I love it...
