About the Property
3 bedroom, waterfront property - great for fishing! Boat included in stay!
The Sugar Suite is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, ranch-style house on the Northeast side of the St. Mary's River (the mouth of Lake George). It is the perfect spot for boating, swimming, fishing (great water depths!) or even duck hunting! It is also close enough to the mainland (about 10.5 miles from the car ferry), that a day trip to the Historic Sault Ste. Marie as a 'fudgie' is always possible! In the Sault, you can visit the shops on Portage Avenue (Or 'Fudgie Lane', which is where tourists get the 'fudgie' name from, because they are known for purchasing a lot of fudge!'), the famous Soo Locks, the Tower of History, Valley Camp, the casino, or one of the few golf courses in town.
The property features 165 ft of waterfront, where you can find a fire pit and a grill for your use! We also have an updated dock (2016) and a few bicycles for your use, but you are welcome to bring your own as well! The most traffic you'll see from this location, is on the water!
The dining room features a dining room table with 6 chairs and a tall top table with 2 stools, views toward the back of the house (where you park) and toward the front of the house (through the large picture window facing the water).
The living room has a couch, an oversized chair with an ottoman, a futon, and the large picture window with water views.
The master bedroom has a Queen bed, with a desk, alarm clock, lamp and a 24' flat screen television with a DVD player included.
The 2nd bedroom 2 queen beds, a full bed, a closet with hanging racks, a night stand, alarm clock, lamp, and a 19' television with a DVD player included and a full size mirror attached to the door.
The 3rd bedroom has a Queen bed, a dresser, a night stand, alarm clock, a lamp, a closet with hanging racks, a 19" TV with DVD player and a full size mirror.
Do you want to bring your boat? You are more than welcome! In fact, there is a DNR boat launch about a mile from this location, so putting it in the water once arrive at the Sugar Suite will not be an issue and we have plenty of room for you park your trailer! OR, per first sentence! Use our Pontoon boat! Again, New for 2016, we have an older Pontoon boat that is available for your use (holds up to 1000 lbs)! If you plan to use the Pontoon boat, please bring life jackets (all children 12 and Under must be wearing their life jackets at all times - US Coast Guard regulation). We make sure the pontoon boat is full of gas for your arrival, and we have additional gas on-site. We will charge you $5/gallon we charge, from your security deposit, based on what you use. It takes mixed gas and we aren't close to any gas stations or marinas, so This is the most convenient method for both parties. If you need more gas than what we have provided, we will work out accordingly.
We'll provide all of the linens, but would appreciate it if you could bring your own beach towels and paper products.
If you possess your Michigan Fishing License, than you can not only use your own boat, or the pontoon boat for fishingC but you also have the option of biking a charter fishing trip just 3 docks down (Blue Heron Sishing Charter). Let us know if you are interested and we'll help you reserve your trip with the captain next door.
Other than that, we welcome your dog(s), but there is an additional $50 fee per animal.
We have a hose for your use, so if you have your own fish cleaning station, bring it and you can hook up to the hose!
Please, let us know if you have any questions! We'll do our best to accomadate special requests!

There is a DNR boat launch about a mile away from this cottage.
Though Sugar Island may not have all of the things featured above, Sault Ste. Marie is only 10.5 miles away - and once you have reached the ferry, you are within a couple miles of downtown Sault Ste. Marie!
This is a great location for fisherman and duck hunters! Plenty of room in the large entryway for all of your gear (a decent amount of shelving and lots of hooks to hang things up).
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: My husband and I both grew up in the Eastern Upper Peninsula, but he's the 'life-long' Islander! In fact, we live in the house he was born and raised in, which is only 2 houses down from the Sugar Suite.
Why the Owner Chose Sault Ste. Marie, MI, USA:
My husband was determined that if the ranch-style home that his granfather built ever became available for sale, he wanted it! Therefore, when the house became available in 2010, we bought it! And now, we call it the Sugar Suite! We feel that it is our way of letting others experience Island life!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the Island and the fact that we can have a camp fire every night if we want, or go for a peaceful boat ride anytime we want - as long at the weather cooperates. Our nieces and nephews love that they can come over and enjoy, water skiing, wake boarding, tubing or jet skiing. Plus, they have the option of staying on the St. Mary's River system, or heading over to Lake George for some larger waves. The best part of this 'Island Retreat' is that you can be as active or inactive as you want! There are definitely things that can keep you busy. However, if you are looking for a peaceful location, to read a book or lay in the sun without distraction, than this is also the place for you!
