About the Property
2+ Plus Bedrooms, Full Downstairs Laundry And Bathroom. Delightful Setting.
THE HOME: This newer cedar home features sleeping for 8 comfortably with a 2+ plus bedroom design. Master bedroom downstairs is equipped with a queen bed and closet. The upstairs "plus" bedroom is a full-home loft with room for 6 or more to sleep comfortably. The occasional larger family (over 8) can fit with added sleeping on the one fold-out futon/couch. Fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and living area together make up the wide open downstairs design with large windows/glass doors overlooking the water. The large wrap-around porch overlooking the water is great for evening gatherings and food on the grill. One full bathroom is nicely located for use by all. Cable television and internet service are provided for your indoor enjoyment. Many board games are provided for your added enjoyment in the evenings or when the outdoor weather is bad.
THE WATER: Just outside the front door, a few steps through the sand, and you are on the beach. Lawn chairs, fire pit, and plenty of room for building sand castles for all. As you relax and enjoy the water and sand, an occasional ship or freighter will pass by so don't forget to bring your camera. These vessels can be from anywhere around the world and are amazing to gaze at. The home does have a dock if you choose to bring a boat. Excellent fishing most all of the year will be all around you. Salmon, Walleye, Perch, Small mouth Bass, and Northern Pike are just some of the many fish species that that are caught on a regular basis. Don't forget your fishing license. If you plan to stray into Canadian water, you will need to follow all Canadian license and fishing rules as well. If you want some tips on good spots to catch dinner, the owner would be pleased to share secrets. (please clean fish outdoors only and properly dispose of the remains).
THE WOODS: The wooded lot consists of approximately 11 acres that are beautiful to enjoy for a walk or to explore the terrain. Watch out, you may scare up the many deer, turkeys, and other wildlife that dwell on the Island.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: Janel, her husband Dan, and six children are from lower Michigan and have always enjoyed the outdoors, especially around water. The family had vacationed at this home numerous times before recently purchasing the home. Dan has enjoyed a lifetime of fishing and has found this location to be one of the best you can find. All of the six children prefer to play in the sand and water the entire day. Several of the children are now taking up an interest in fishing as well. While Janel grew up with one sibling, Dan has 14 siblings. Family gatherings at a lake home like this have been a highlight for the owners for many years.
Why the Owner Chose Sault Ste. Marie, MI, USA:
Having known the prior owners of this home, and having vacationed at this very site, made this home and location of special interest. In fact, the home is only about 10 years old and the Garno's vacationed in the area before the home was even built. If you enjoy the outdoors, water, swimming, fishing, sand, and great family time, this is an experience you will keep with you for a lifetime.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
First of all, this large 11 acre wooded lot provides a peaceful and secluded setting. Whether you are just a couple wanting a peaceful week away, or a family with children wanting to make a little noise on the beach, you will find this location to provide a nice private setting to enjoy. One of the very unique attractions are the occasional freighters and ships from around the world that pass directly in front of the home. There are few places where this experience can be enjoyed, and this is one. Experiencing the ferry ride, staying on an island, enjoying the company of family, fishing, swimming, evenings around the campfire, and much much more make this location one of the most unique you will ever find.
