What makes this House unique
We fell in love with Beaver Island because it is like going back in time to a much simpler life style. Materialistic things don't really seem to matter on the island. When we vacation there ourselves time is not an important part of the day.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
The house is lovely and has everything you could need, including amazing lake views. The location is great for peace and quiet. We visits from Terry, the owner's father, who told us a lot about BI and gave us a great, helpful tour. We were so sad to leave.
Great place to stay!
We had a wonderful visit. The house was very nice and clean, we felt very safe and comfortable. Terry does a wonderful job. We will definitely come back.
Nice house and location on Beaver Island. We’d give it 3.5 stars if we could.
Nice house with good amenities including all kitchen utensils etc, as well as bikes and kayak/ canoe. Lovely setting with deck overlooking Lake Michigan across the road. Gas grill, although there were some problems with it functioning properly. Had to make beds upon arrival, and had to clean sheets and towels before check-out at 11:00 which added stress to the departure process of getting packed up. Seems like owner should take responsibility for that or allow later departure and not charge $75 service fee. Overall, we enjoyed our time there with old friends, and nice to be on Beaver Island “away from it all”. One minor suggestion would be to have a few board games available for folks to play, as travelers don’t tend to bring them along but would enjoy finding them there - we had difficulty assembling a full deck of cards to play with. Again, overall we enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful vacation home.
We had a wonderful time on Beaver Island. It is so relaxing and beautiful. A nice slow pace for each day. Terry had many good recommendations and we enjoyed his visits. The home is very clean and provides everything you need. We enjoyed swimming in the lake and collecting rocks. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. We hope to return again sometime.
Beautiful view and Peaceful.
Had a wonderful time with family. The home was very comfortable and homie. We had such an amazing time and felt so grateful.
We are so glad you had a good time, at Trate Retreat, Come back again. Thanks Nancy-Terry
Wonderful view and very well-kept cabin. The renters are great people who are very nice and helpful. By far the best rental experience I have had on Lake Michigan.
