The SpaceWe love to wake up early, watch the sun rise and listen to the peace and quiet. On a clear day, you can even see the Mackinac Bridge from the cottage. We also love to just sit out at the beach house in the evening to watch the wildlife. It can be a very tranquil and quiet place. The property sits on 10 grassy and wooded acres on Lake Michigan. We are secluded, you won't see another house from the cottage, but we're located just 5-6 miles from town. Not too close, yet not too far away. Summers are pretty lazy and carefree. This is a great place for a family (or a few families) to reconnect. Sit around by the water, play games, read a good book (or 2), or enjoy 'smores over an evening campfire. Most people don't know this but September is a wonderful time to come to Beaver Island. The weather is perfect and the colors are spectacular! St. James beach is a short trip from the cottage. You can buzz into town for a coffee. ice cream cone or a drink without draining your wallet. You can also go for a swim or spend the afternoon at the beach. There is always something going on. Take a trip to the bottom of the island and set out on a beach hike or just enjoy the beach. If you are looking for relaxation or a little adventure, this Island has it all. The cottage features 3 bedrooms plus a hide-a-bed. One of the bedrooms is on the first floor. The cottage has 2 full bathrooms, there is a nice family area and kitchen with stainless steel appliances. We have a fire pit and a beach house. There is a nice deck with a picnic table that seats about 10. The cottage comes with plenty of fans if you need them but if you open the windows you will be treated to a very nice breeze that keeps the house very comfortable in the summer.

We hope that you find as much to discover in this secluded gem of a place as we have.

            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 80 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, but currently uses an outhouse and water has to be brought in by the tenants. 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! You may enjoy a good book overlooking Lake Michigan, walk the miles of sandy beach which are clear, pristine and unobstructed, take a swim in the clear lake water, explore the island and over 100 miles of roads, go for a bike ride using the 2 bikes provided, fish on one of the 5 inland lakes, roast marshmallows in the fire pit on the beach, admire the vast array of stars, discover some of the other islands in the Archipelego, visit the spa for a massage, play nine at the Beaver golf course, lounge on the patio, cocktails at Nina's, Donnegal Bay to enjoy the sunset, visit the CMU Biological center, or the 2 lighthouses on the island, Little Sand Bay, Iron Ore Bay or simply do Nothing!

            This is a beautiful, 1900 square foot vacation home with beds for 6 adults and a pull out queen sofa in the lower level. Most people coming to Beaver Island look forward to its abundant nature and solitude. We love to wake up early, watch the sun rise and listen to the peace and quiet. On a clear day, you can even see the Mackinac Bridge from the cottage. We also love to just sit out at the beach house in the evening to watch the wildlife. It can be a very tranquil and quiet place. The property sits on 10 grassy and wooded acres on Lake Michigan. We are secluded, you won't see another house from the cottage, but we're located just 5-6 miles from town. Not too close, yet not too far away. Summers are pretty lazy and carefree. This is a great place for a family (or a few families) to reconnect. Sit around by the water, play games, read a good book (or 2), or enjoy 'smores over an evening campfire. Although located on 10 acres of Lake Michigan waterfront, this is not a great swimming beach. There are some nice sandy beaches on the Island for swimming. St. James beach is a short trip from the cottage. You can buzz into town for a coffee. ice cream cone or a drink without draining your wallet. You can also go for a swim or spend the afternoon at the beach. There is always something going on. Take a trip to the bottom of the island and set out on a beach hike or just enjoy the beach. If you are looking for relaxation or a little adventure, this Island has it all. Most people don't know this but September is a wonderful time to come to Beaver Island. The weather is perfect and the colors are spectacular! The cottage features 3 bedrooms plus a hide-a-bed. One of the bedrooms is on the first floor. The cottage has 2 full bathrooms, there is a nice family area and kitchen with stainless steel appliances. We have a fire pit and a beach house. There is a nice deck with a picnic table that seats about 10. The cottage comes with plenty of fans if you need them but if you open the windows you will be treated to a very nice breeze that keeps the house very comfortable in the summer. Beaver Island is the most remote inhabited island in the Great Lakes, located in Lake Michigan about 30 miles north of Charlevoix. There are fine museums, gift shops, art galleries, a golf course and tennis courts, Island tours, house parties, classes at CMU, and dances and plays at the Hall. Much of what the island offers is free: beachcombing, bird watching, biking, camping, hunting, fishing, x-c skiing, or exploring the other islands. There are over 100 miles of scenic roads, and too many old trails to count. You may come to the island by ferry service from Charlevoix, charter boat, or airplane. Getting to the Island: Two businesses provide regular air transportation between Charlevoix and the island. The trip takes about 15 minutes each way, and both carriers make several trips daily, based on passenger reservations. Fresh Air Aviation - (231)237-9482 or (888)359-7448. Island Airways (231)547-2141 (Charlevoix). Beaver Island Boat Company, Charlevoix - (231)547-2311 or (888)446-4095. A 2-hour ferry ride to the island from Charlevoix. Call them for prices.

A large sect of Mormons farmed and lived on the island in the 1850's and 1860's, while remnants of their agrarian life is seen in ruined log cabins and barns and is chronicled at the Mormon History Museum in town. Visitors and residents alike appreciate the remote and quiet lifestyle that the Island offers, with a variety of outdoor and sporting activities to suit every lifestyle and taste. A Community Center in a recently restored 100 year old storefront building on the harborfront has become a gathering place for visitors and residents to see live entertainment, cinema, lectures and a youth activity center with video gaming, computers with internet access and other leisure and entertainment activities. The year round population of 600 people swells into the thousands as family, sportsmen, athletes, college students, boaters and campers are attracted to the island for it's many seasonal offerings.

              Kickapoo camp was the name of a small group of cabins at Kelly's Point years ago. We have saved this one room cabin by building a new, larger cabin completely over it, finishing the project in May 2010. If you enjoy history and retro furnishings this is the place for you. We have a completely furnished cabin, just bring your food and drink. This property is for sale and provides good rental income. The cabin has huge windows with sweeping views of Lake Michigan and you will be mesmerized by the waves. Often, huge freighters pass and the ferry of course. You can use the binoculars to get a closer view or the telescope to see the mainland. The waterfowl love our shallow waterfront and swans often join the wide variety of birds. We have 250' of lakefront but no year-round neighbors so it is a very private 'getaway'. It is a short bike ride or hike to the south end light house (open to the public) and Iron Ore Bay. There you will find lovely sand beach, picnic area, dunes, etc. There is a spring fed creek our grandchildren play in for hours. The sunrise and moonrise are both spectacular and you won't believe the stars you can see!! Enjoy the pace of the island and the solitude and peace of nature. There is no phone or TV and cell service is often spotty at our cabin. Keywords: private, lake mi,getaway, beach,retro,nature,

              Inish Pines is a place of seclusion. The post & beam vacation home is tucked in among towering White Pines. Looking west from the deck you have a spectacular view of both High & Gull Islands. If you get up early you may see deer playing in the surf or a bald eagle circling the bay looking for breakfast. A Kayakers dream, the bay is crystal clear, speckled with large boulders and sheltered from heavy surf by Lefts Point. Snorkeling is superb. Read or nap in the hammocks under the White Birch trees. Beach comb the shoreline . Grab some deck chairs; take them out in the surf. The lake shore in front of the cottage and in the bay is rocky. Photos will be sent with inquires. Days end, a Lake Michigan sunset, steaks on the grill, a glass of wine. Fall asleep to the sound of waves breaking on the rock as the night sea breeze blows through your bedroom window. The Cottage: Arts and craft interior and furnishings Four bedroom, 2 ½ bath, 2400 sq ft A sun room off the dinning room that doubles as an extra bedroom The large screen porch seats 10 for dinner There is a fire pit on the deck w/ deck seating for ten Firewood provided on the honor system, $2 per arm load The Island: Three good restaurants. A super market with a superb meat department. Gas is expensive so fill up on the mainland. There are several nature preserves on the island and dozens of hiking trails. Four white sand public beaches and they are never crowded. High speed wireless internet is available in town at all restaurants, bars, coffee shops and the library. Vehicle Reservations on Ferry – As soon as you have a confirmed rental reservation, you need to make a round-trip reservation for your vehicle with the ferry company. Do not delay making this reservation – vehicle spaces on the ferries are extremely limited during the summer season due to high demand. Beaver Island Boat Company Cell Phone Signals – Some cell phones work on the island and some don’t. Don’t count on it! Bring a pre-paid calling card if you think you will need to make off-island calls. Cell phones do not work from the cottage. Next to the Owners Profile I have placed a reprint from my guest book. It’s worth reading to get a “feel” for Inish Pines and to help you determine if it fits for you. I especially like the comments by Hanna, age 9. Keywords: beach, front, cottage,lake,
