Overview

About the property

If you're looking to get away from it all, this is the place for you! Offering a private, sandy beach on one of the island's most beautiful bays, this is the perfect spot to unwind and relax with family and friends. Enjoy scenic lakefront views from the dining room, living room, deck or by taking a stroll down the majestic shoreline.

Sleeps 6 featuring:

• 2 bedrooms (queen-size bed in each)

• 2 sleeper-sofas

Also includes:

• Fully-stocked kitchen

• Dining and living rooms

• 1 ½ bathrooms

• Enclosed porch and outdoor deck

• See the amenities section for more!

The cottage is located about 12 miles from boat dock and airport, so you will need to bring a vehicle* across on the ferry or rent one in town.

*NOTE: Reservations for automobile transport on the ferry should be made a couple months in advance, if possible. Please go to the boat company website for rates and schedules at bibco (dot com).

There are several restaurants, shops, a library, a community center and various other locations with free wi-fi internet, a deli and a fully-stocked grocery store in town.

The island has several hiking trails and inland lakes including Lake Geneserath, which is just across the road from the cottage. There are two lighthouses on the island and several opportunities for exploring. There is also a golf course just outside of town.

There are many websites with additional information about the island that you may find useful. Just search for Beaver Island!

About Craig Bierenga

I live in Grand Rapids, MI

Craig Bierenga purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Craig Bierenga chose Northwest

This property was purchased by my grandparents in 1970. The photo shows my grandma and me near the beach in front of the cottage. My parents brought our family to the island every summer when I was growing up. It was the week my siblings and I most looked forward to every year! I would love to see others share this experience with family and friends!

Notes:
**Please NOTE: Guests are asked to bring their own linens including bed sheets, pillow cases, towels & washcloths. Pillows, blankets and comforters are provided. While the lake floor is mostly sandy, some years there are stones along the shoreline for the 5-10 feet or so. I recommend bringing water shoes if you have them, especially for children. Telephone is available for local calls only unless using a prepaid calling card for long-distance calls. Cell phone coverage is not reliable at the cottage. Check-in is 3pm or later. Check-out time is 10am. This allows time for the cottage to be cleaned in between guests. Thank you!
