About Keith & Sheri Pierson :-)

My family have been going to the island for nearly 50 years. My parents loved the charm and the beautiful lake Michigan scenery. Although my parents are no longer with us, I have been able to keep the tradition alive by bringing my children to the cottage. We still visit the island regularly and I savor the moments that I can spend reminiscing with my two boys of the times, and memories, I had during the summers growing up on on the island. It is, and will always be, a special place.

Keith & Sheri Pierson :-) purchased this cottage in 1973

Why Keith & Sheri Pierson :-) chose Northwest

The cottage is ideally situated overlooking the harbor. The view is nothing less than spectacular. Sitting on the deck, watching the the boats sail by and enjoying the sunset is inspiring. Most of our guests say that just 'hanging out' on the deck and relaxing is one of the endearing qualities of the Beaver Island Harbor View.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is centrally located and over-looks the entire St. James township harbor, and is walking distance from grocery store, fish market, lighthouse, and ferry docks.

I have traveled to Beaver Island numerous times and our stay at this home was perfect. The location to town allowed walking access to the entire town. The views of the harbor were perfect. The weather was warmer then usual but that is Michigan. Rent this home it was wonderful.

Great Beaver Island Headquarters

  • 5 of 5

This rental is exactly what I was looking for. My kids and I only used the car once the entire week, because we were within biking distance to so much. We loved the view, the smell of the lake and the sound of the waves. It is an older home, as I expected from the pictures. I preferred that because I had two kids who can be rambunctious. The price is probably one of the most affordable on the island.

Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great spot for getting around the town. My boys rode bikes down to the Community Center on a regular basis. We came to the island without a car and managed just fine. The house is so close to many things. I would recommend walks down to the lighthouse which is very close. We also really enjoyed the Toy Museum which you can walk to in about two minutes. We rented a car for one day to see the whole island. Even the car rental place is close to the house. We found the house clean and well equipped. My wife and my two boys had plenty of room and space. I could really tell that the owners put a lot of care into making folks feel at home and comfortable. It was very sad to leave the house and the island. We wanted to stay!:)
