Loved the area and the house. Very relaxing and people on the island are very friendly. The thing that didn't work was the wash machine would not spin out

Owner's Response: So glad you loved your time on the Island and at Star Gazer. Oh no! We didn't know there was an issue with the washing machine. So sorry for the inconvenience. We will have it looked at immediately. Thank you!

It’s been said, the ORV trails on Drummond Island are some of the most scenic and rugged trails the State of Michigan has to offer an off-road enthusiast. With over 117 miles of trail laid out in a closed loop system, Drummond’s DNR sponsored, ORV trails/routes provide a wide range of riding opportunities.

Winter life on Drummond Island is a wonderful adventure that the whole family can enjoy. The number of activities is endless. There is snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross-country skiing, and Siberian Husky dog sled races, just to mention a few. If you are looking for a great place to ride your snow sled, Drummond Island should be your #1 choice. You can ride nearly 80 miles of trails and much of the time you don’t have to be bothered by the crowds. The nice thing about the trails is that the Drummond Island Grooming Association has two grooming machines that maintain the trails in excellent riding conditions. The trails on the island are open from December 1 thru March 31
