"Steinreich" Cottage is located directly on Lake Huron on the east side of Bois Blanc Island, 5 miles from Cheboygan on the mainland where most visitors embark by scheduled seasonal ferry service or year round air service.
"Steinreich Cottage offers 12+ guests the ultimate in comfort and peaceful solitude. A wrap around porch and a very open and specious living area with a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, all off the lakefront side of the home are a few of the best features. We can provide sleeping for up to 16.
A screened-in beach side deck is the perfect location to view our little "island", the crossing ships or for stargazing at night. Telescope for stargazing is on the porch.
Use the model train to bring the drinks and snacks to the guests. Barn fire ring right at the beach. Wood to burn is plenty!
Go swimming right off the little island or on the sandy beach of "Hohe Tannen" just 150 yards down Lake Huron, or at "Snow Beach" Bay just 1 mile from the cottage, or hike, bike, hunt, ski or run on the primarily flat dirt roads and trails. There is "Rusty" in the woods to play with, a row boat, three 2 person kayaks and 5+ bikes with helmets to explore the island.
A year-round destination. For guests who prefer the winter time - snowmobil and country cross skiing on endless trails is only one of the possibilities. From December-April there is a caterer (fully licensed) and a gourmet service located on the island to order breakfast, lunch and dinner.
