About Rick Tasch
I built Island Retreat in 2000 with the help of a very accomplished local contractor. I enjoy being there whenever possible. I live with my daughters in Traverse City, Mi., about three hours from Drummond. I am an Ann Arbor native, a big sports fan and nature lover.
Rick Tasch purchased this House in 2000
Why Rick Tasch chose Drummond
It's a special location because of the view, privacy, sunsets and proximity to town and the ferry.

Bird Hunting Trip
The cabin was perfect for us for the 3 day weekend trip. Very comfortable with plenty of room. Great view of the bay.
The location and view are absolutely beautiful. The loft does not have a couch/futon. It has a couch. One of my friends who was expecting a futon slept on a couch. Bring your own towels, the ones provided are threadbare. Bring toilet paper, there may be only one roll. I would suggest the property owner get rid of pictures of people in the listing and add pictures of the third bedroom and the loft. Had I known the loft didn’t have a futon I would have looked elsewhere for accommodations. Having said all that, we had a great time and enjoyed the unparalleled vhs collection. A few details could have made this a five star stay.
A Lovely Place to Stay on Drummond
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was very spacious with a well appointed kitchen. Location was excellent and sitting on the dock talking and laughing was a so much fun. And, of course, the 4 wheeling around Drummond Island was awesome!
wonderful. No stress. Little bit of paradise in UP.
Amenities we're accurate. Too much personal property in closets limiting space. Oven was dirty.
Lovely house and decks in a beautiful location!
Breathtaking Sunsets are only the beginning...
We loved every minute on Drummond Island... the people are friendly, the rugged beauty at every turn is unforgettable and the view from Island Retreat is second to none. We spent 2 1/2 wonderful weeks on Drummond Island and never wanted to leave! The floor to vaulted ceiling windows at this rustic cabin made us feel wrapped in refreshment with the ever changing, crystal clear, sapphire blue water. We explored the island and saw deer, all kinds of birds, colorful butterflies, and one day, we even saw a black bear... he was a beauty! You will never run out of things do and see on Drummond Island, but for us, it was pure relaxation with exhilarating adventures every day! Every evening, we couldn't wait to get home and bask in the gorgeous, breathtaking sunsets, each evening more beautiful than the one before! Enjoy!
The island is very large, and offers great hunting, fishing, ATV, boating, snowmobiling, gift shops, restaurants, bars, bowling, hiking, swimming, natural beauty and wildlife.
