My cottage is located 2.6 miles from ferry dock, at the base of Fairbanks Point, which is between the ferry dock and town. It has an open kitchen & living room layout, with two comfortable bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. The second bedroom has a double bed and a twin size bed. It can sleep 5 comfortably.

This is a good area for fishing, boating, canoeing and kayaking. There is a fire pit in the front yard with log benches for sitting on and a limited amount of fire wood for the fire pit. Enjoy the beautiful evenings while roasting marshmallows or cooking supper over an open fire.

Cabin Address: 35534 S Kelley Drive, Drummond Island 49726

This home sits at the base of Fairbanks Point, where you can watch the sun rise over beautiful lake Huron. It has a large front yard that you can use for your enjoyment. Quite often you can see deer, rabbits or other wildlife wondering through. This past summer we had a mother Sandhill crane and two young ones that would come through regularly.

It's comfortable yet cozy and affordable. A great place to spend a week’s vacation.

Why Ron Kelley chose USA

I was raised on the island but after I got married I moved off the island. We went back to the island often to vacation and spend time with family & friends. As my family grow in size, I decided we needed a place of our own for spending time over there. My dad offered to give me the property this cottage sets on and it is part of the property were I was raised. In 1996 with the help of my wife & children we built this cottage ourselves. It took a while to complete but it turned out very nice . Its been great owning our on place there and over the years we have made many good memory's of time spent there. .

What makes this cottage unique

This property has a big front yard with lots for room for playing games or just relaxing, It has a fire pit with log benches to set on and wood for you to use for a fire. We have a well protected area ,with a dock to keep your boat tied up at or access for your Kayaks, canoe or what ever.

Great rental house on Drummond Island.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed here. The house is in great shape and is perfect for a small family (two bedrooms; three beds). The location and setting are amazing with beautiful water views and a large yard with picnic table, grill, deck, fire pit, etc., etc.

Clean & maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We always enjoyed coming back to the cabin, after a days out and about, on the Island or Mainland.

Mr. Kelly visited us to make sure everything was satisfactory, and working.

He took care of the Trash disposal on a timely basis.

If you are looking for a nice clean ,quiet place to kick back and relax this is the place for you. Only draw back is not many channel on TV.

Vacation with my sisters

  • 5 of 5

What a great place ! It was our first time on Drummond Island, and I was a bit nervous about renting a cottage, sight unseen. It was perfect. The description was accurate, it was spotless, and very comfortable. As other folks have stated, it is well stocked with the essentials (even a crock pot !) and everything provided was in great shape. My sisters and I have already decided we will definitely be back. Thanks very much !

Great Place, Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, neat, and well stocked with the essentials(soap, paper towel, toilet paper, etc.). Very impressed with the hospitality that Ron and Jason provided. Very helpful! Our kids (8,6, and 1.5) had a blast with the big yard and the lake! Would love to stay again sometime.

Drummond's best kept secret!

  • 5 of 5

ONE Word:PERFECT!!

Beginning with meeting Ron/Kari & Jason. They are the nicest, most kind, accommodating, helpful, welcoming island folk. Jason was soooo patient with my young boys as they gravitated to his dock -daily- while catching their gazillion frogs!! 🐸

The rental is all that one could ever need. I was overly impressed!! It's SUPER clean, tidy and stocked plus it's tucked off the main road but close enuff to town. It's quiet/peaceful. The view--my goodness -the view! It's impossibke to describe the view! The sunrises were so awesome.... The stargazing off of the deck was unbelievable! We THOROUGHLY enjoyed ourselves... THOROUGHLY!

Five star rating?? Ha! I'm giving it a TEN!!

We'll be back -sure thing!

Thank you so much Ron/Kari and Jason!

Great place to enjoy Drummond Island stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It was clean, neat and well equipped. The grounds and property were well maintained and it was convenient for access to local shops and restaurants. The peaceful and quiet surroundings were a great place for a getaway. Fishing and kayaking were very good and the dock facilities were fine for our boat. We highly recommend this property for anyone looking to enjoy Drummond Island.
