Rental is the entire island! Howard Is. is a two acre privately owned island, located a mile north of Drummond Is. in Potagannissing Bay, Lake Huron. It is one of hundreds of privately owned Islands in the bay. Howard Is. is heavily wooded with Cedar trees. It offers serene beauty and a kind of relaxation you will never experience in your life. To watch sunsets and sunrises you simply turn your chair around.
To get to Howard Is., you leave by boat from The Yacht Haven marina and boat north ( about a mile) to tie up to the lazy L dock at Howard Is. Boat rentals are available at the marina; 906 493-5232. Having your own boat is a plus. (First time renters would meet me at the marina for all the particulars.) This is a seasonal vacation spot and is open from mid May thru September.
The island has two charming log cabins and a boat house or garage. The main cabin has two bedrooms (sleeps six) and a bath. It has a very complete kitchen and comfortable living room. Large windows enhance lake views. The smaller cabin, Hide-a-Way, has an enclosed porch that leads into a very adorable comfortable sitting area with fireplace. It is complete with a sofa sleeper and a loft that holds two small beds. Both cabins have knotty knotty pine interiors, slate fireplaces and filled with vintage log furniture. Wood is provided for the fireplaces and the two bonfire pits.
Amenities include: a large dock, a picnic table on a large deck, totem pole, hammock, glorious views, wild life and star gazing.
