Other things to note
Because 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.
For our Friends and Family. Shoes off at the door. No smoking in the home, only outside or on the deck. No pets in the home, a dog house is available outside. No loud parties or overnight guest.
