Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-9)
Why Gerry chose Beaver Island
I chose to buy land on Beaver Island because of it's unique natural beauty and isolation
What makes this Cabin unique
It is so quite and isolated. I enjoy the solitude and natural beauty.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
The property was dirty, moldy, smelly, and infested with mice. We left after one very uncomfortable night. Stay at your own risk
I apologized to the guest and refunded his stay in full. I have taken care of the issues that he had. Unfortunately the housekeeper that I had over the summer did not attend to the cleaning as she should have. The mold in the refrigerator should have been addressed with each cleaning, the mattress has been professionally cleaned also. Part of the responsibility of the housekeeper is to call the exterminator is there are problems with mice and she did not do this. I have since hired a new caretaker who comes with very good reviews. I'm sure that this season will be great! Please call me directly with other questions.
Great place to get away from all and get in touch with nature
We loved the place and all the surroundings. Definitely would go back again. Peace and quiet.
Cute with Real Character
I actually stayed back in July of 2015 and I never left a review! The property was wonderful! It was under construction, but still a beautiful place to be! We had a wonderful stay, and Gerry was very accommodating with all of my questions and concerns. The bathroom was being worked on so we actually had to shower outdoors, which was a little wild for our stay, but we made a make shift shower curtain, and things worked out perfectly! We had an absolute blast, and we will definitely be back!
Perfect getaway where time is standing still ...
It occurred to me that I never gave you feedback to our stay at Eagle’s Rest:
Everything worked out just fine and even better than we expected – we found our way on our bikes easily to the cabin. Upon arrival I was looking all over the place for the keys as described in your directions, however, could not find them. Until my husband checked the door and it was unlocked. A pleasant surprise.
The cabin is very well equipped and we found everything we needed and more. We greatly enjoyed the outdoor shower and hope that you will still leave it as an option to the beautiful bathroom you are building. We slept in on our last day and proceeded to start cooking a wonderful breakfast with some ingredients we bought on our bike trip to the village. On the second day vacation mode set in and we relaxed completely – a good thing – however, I was not aware, although stipulated in your lease – that we had to leave at 10 am sharp as I mentioned in my email that we will take the afternoon ferry back to the mainland. I just came out of the shower as your friendly neighbor knocked on the door shortly before 10 am. We had to abandon the cabin in a hurry, packing up the half-cooked breakfast and leave. Oh well, a quick farewell to this most gorgeous place you own. I guess in such a remote place, far away from civilization (so it feels) we did not realize that time still is passing quickly …
We left the island after a great experience “downtown” watching the 4th of July parade rolling through the village twice and meeting many kind and genuine friendly folks.
Enjoy your summer and wishing you good luck with your final touches on your very professionally done remodeling job.
2nd year in a row and couldn't have asked for better
My last review was from our first trip one year ago. This year we rented the cabin for 5 days and we had even more fun than we did last time. Everything I said before still stands true (see perfect weekend getaway below). Honestly it was really neat to see the addition to the cabin and it was so nice having all of that extra space. The view was just as beautiful as I remembered it with the same comfy cabin feeling. We took the kayaks out again and we had days worth of fun. I am so happy to have stumbled upon this little gem one year ago and took the risk of trying something new. We will be yearly vacationers and will always stay at this cabin. This year we also checked out the beach in town and had a lot of fun there. I still stand true when I say that everyone is so friendly on the island and the water is absolutely beautiful. The trip through the muck in the back to get the kayaks out to the water is almost like a secret passage way to the most beautiful relaxing time on the water. Again, nothing but great things to say about this location.
Perfect weekend getaway
My boyfriend and I stayed at this cabin for a weekend. Everyone on the island was very friendly. We had quick responses and communication with the owner of the cabin. The owner of the rental car company did not have a car available on our day of arrival so she picked us up and took us to our cabin then delivered a car to us. All while giving us a tour of the island. We went out to eat and everyone was so friendly and we found people who were from the same home town as us. The cabin was perfect for the price. They are adding onto the cabin but in no way shape or form did this hinder the feeling of staying in a cabin for us. It was nice to be able to use the indoor toilet tho! The bikes and kayaks were a HUGE plus. We went for a 3 hour bike ride and happen to ride by our neighbors(which we found out after we stopped and asked for directions) who were very friendly and gave us many inside tips on the island. We took the kayaks out for a full day. If you are an adventure person and not just a relax on the beach person then this is the perfect spot. You have to truck through a little muck to get the kayaks to the water but it is worth it! Once you get out to the water it is absolutely beautiful. It was only about 72 degrees the day we were out on the water but the water was so warm! The grill and fireplace were great to cook and relax at the end of the night. The shower is out on the back deck of the cabin, kind of tucked away tho, which was a great experience. I loved showering outdoors and just seeing the beauty of everything around. Overall I have no complaints. If you wanted to get away and be left alone and hang out at the cabin all weekend you could or if you wanted to go out and explore you could. We will defiantly be coming back!
