Beautiful spot (view of both sunrise and sunset in August) on exclusive Beaver Island. Private but within walking distance (about 1 mile) to the ferry dock and town of St. James. Sleeps twelve.
Can find directions via Gew-gle maps. Also for sale.
This A-frame style home sits on a dune overlooking Garden and Squaw Islands. Beautiful private setting is still within walking distance (about 1 mile) to the ferry dock and town of St. James. The house was completely remodeled in 2001 and has all the features and comforts of a modern home with that island cottage feel.
The home sleeps 12 in a master bedroom with queen bed, 2nd bedroom with 2 double beds, and 3rd bedroom in the walk-out lower level with 4 single beds and a pull-out couch.
A large leather sectional in the living room surrounds a wood burning stove under a lofted wood-beamed ceiling. For rainy days, the house has a stereo, TV with VCR and DVD players, books, and board games. The spacious kitchen has all of the cooking basics and a long breakfast bar with stools. The dining area has a large oak table which can expand to seat 12 and is perfect for family meals or entertaining.
A large wrap-around porch offers unforgettable sunrise and sunset lake views, another dining table, rocking chairs, and a grill. A large rope hammock in the sunny side yard is the perfect spot to see deer, wild turkeys, and other passing wildlife.
A beautiful private pebble beach is at the end of a short stairway. Enjoy the beachside fire pit and deck area with lounge chairs, 5 kayaks, and plenty of life jackets and aqua socks for island fun. 3 bicycles are also available for use.
Pets are allowed with pre-approval. Linens and washer/dryer are provided. Caretaker will pick-up/drop-off at the ferry dock if necessary.
