Nothing Else Like It In Michigan
Seclusion! You pretty much have an entire island to yourself. We didn't go off the beaten path that much since everything we wanted to enjoy was right outside the cabin in just 5 steps. Open water. We did a lot of floating around on rafts , snorkeling, and horsing around playing Frisbee, making up games in the water. The water depth was gradual and you really had to wade out there a long way to get even close to being neck level, so it was good for the kids. There are only a few houses on the island and there were a few days where we were the only ones on the Island. It was a cool feeling. We brought along a bass boat and went out fishing a few days ( we were there for 6 days) and caught some monsterous small mouth , as well as some nice walleyes which was dinner. My favorite part was just sitting on the porch and looking at the horizon during the day and the stars and lights of the mainland at night , watching the boats and birds go by. Whether you are young or old , want to relax and read or go for a hike or a swim, there was something for us all. You are kinda roughing it in a way. There was no TV or Internet. The only electricity was from a gasoline generator (which you do have to go out and fill yourself. They do supply the gas though) and some of the lights ran on propane as well as the fridge and stove, but when the generator is going its just like any other house you would be in that has regular electricity. There is a water tower that is filled by a water pump that draws right from Lake Huron . We cooked over the bon fire a few times to which was fun. The cabin itself was very clean , nice and cozy. Beds were comfy. It was a perfect balance of comfort and rustic. The island itself is mostly undeveloped which means it is raw wilderness. which meant that there were plenty of bugs and critters , but my girlfriend is the worst when it comes to those things and she dealt with it like a trooper. The views were awesome. The sunsets spectacular. Tons of birds. It was a truly unique experience and we do plan to go back, shhhhh, probably without any kids the next time!
