The SpaceOur Cabin in the woods is a typical northern Michigan summer cottage. Very quaint, comfortable, a perfect retreat. One private bedroom with a King Selectric bed and one bunk room with two bunk beds (four singles). The Laundry room also has a day bed for an extra sleeping space. The living room is well appointed with three lounge chairs and a sofa. A full kitchen with large refrigerator/freezer, full size gas stove, cupboard space full with pots, pans, dishes & silverware. Full size claw foot bathtub with shower in a good size bathroom. A family of six or less will be very comfortable and have plenty of their own space. Guest AccessYou have a huge yard, cabin, 125 feet of beach on lake Huron, and 40 acres of land to roam on. Most of the Island is public land (state or federal forest), biking, hiking, boating, fishing, birding, or seeking wild flowers, are all favorite past times. Boating, skiing, sailing, pwc, kayaking, & swimming are favorites to those coming to BBI. Four wheelers and dirt bikes are welcome but must follow all of the DNR regulations, the sheriff and DNR officers are very strict about vehicles not on approved trails. Interaction with GuestsYour landlords live across the lane and are May thru November residents and will be available your entire stay to help make your vacation retreat a pleasant one. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is very sleepy, quite, low key, summer cottages and a few year round homes. A small get together or party is normal but must respect the serenity of the neighbors. If you want to party hard, the bar is two miles down the road, close enough to walk if you can't drive. Getting AroundA vehicle is almost a must, we recommend a suv or 4 wheel drive, the roads are all dirt so you might not want to use your new car. Plaunt Transportation will transport vehicles from Cheboygan. You can fly into BBI, we have a state of the art local airport, 6Y1, a new 3800 foot runway, fuel in Cheboygan or St Ignace. Fly yourself or use Great Lakes Air in St Ignace, they will fly from Cheboygan or St Ignace to BBI. If you fly in we can rent you a Dodge Dakota, 4 person, 4X4 for $20 a day. A fishing boat, motor, & trailer is also available to rent for the 5 inland lakes, can not be used on Lake Huron. Other Things to NoteBecause your on an island there are two things you need to know: 1) you must take a ferry from Cheboygan to get to the island, you can bring your bikes or vehicle (or both), for just passengers and bikes you do not need a reservation but you do need an advanced reservation for your vehicle. Contact Plaunt Transportation in Cheboygan, view their website "bbiferry"; and 2) There is one restaurant (Hawks) that servers good food and alcohol and one bar (Barbs) that serves alcohol and good food, all of your other food & beverages must be brought with you. Gasoline is about $5 at Hawks, so you may want to bring your own.
