Get Away to an unspoiled environment, a place that has been virtually untouched and unspoiled, that is Beaver Island. Our cabin (Kelly's Point) is situated 40 feet from Lake Michigan on a 2 acre Parcel. The views of Lake Michigan and The Fox Islands are spectacular!
Getting to Beaver Island: The first stop is Charlevoix, MI, a Lake Michigan harbor city located approx 250 miles north of Detroit. You can also fly into Pelston or Traverse City airports and connect to Beaver Island Ferry or Island Airways in Charlevoix. From Charlevoix take a quick 20 minute flight or the 2 hour leisurely ferry ride on the Emerald Isle. Either way, it's an amazing adventure!
When you arrive on the island you will find a place that will take you back in time. Slow, patient, friendly and Beautiful! You might want to stop at the Shamrock for a beverage after the ferry ride or take the scenic 20 minute drive straight out to Kelly's Point. Distance is measured by time on the Island, most of the roads have not been paved...it's just another way to make you slow down!
When you reach Kelly's Point the drive in is through a wooded pathway into a vast open area with scattered trees along the perimeter. Kelly's Point was first built in the 1930's as an original island cabin. It is in the process of being modernized, There is a functioning indoor toilet, outdoor shower, kitchen sink and electricity. Kelly's Point is very charming, with spectacular views of Lake Michigan. It is 900sq. feet, has a great front porch, and a wonderful beach. All furnishings are new or local antiques. It is the renter's responsibility to bring their own sheets and towels. Kelly's Point has a charming decor with an open layout which includes 11 windows, overlooking Lake Michigan. There is one bedroom with 2 single beds. It is a perfect get away for 2 people!
