About the property

2 Story, 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 9, 2.5 Baths.

Mr. Moon's Cottage has everything one could want or need to enjoy a vacation on Beaver Island. The home is located on the north end of the island. It is between the town and the north beach, which are both only a short walk away. It is a bright and comfortable two story home that easily sleeps 9 people.

The main floor has two bedrooms, each with sky lights, ceiling fans. The master bedroom has a king bed, as well as a sliding glass door leading to a private deck. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a twin on top and a full on the bottom. There is a full bathroom, and a half bath which has a laundry room with washer/dryer.

The kitchen is fully equipped including a new dish washer. It is open to the living room and the large front deck so the cook can always be a part of the fun, wherever it is happening. Take the party downstairs into the large living space that looks out to the north side. There is a comfy sitting area with full futon sofa for watching movies on the TV/DVD. It is a smart TV so you can use your Netflix account. Enjoy playing your games/puzzles on the large table. There is also a bedroom with a queen bed and a full bathroom. Walk out the sliding glass door and you are minutes away from the Back beach.

For use there are 5 bikes, and 2 kayaks. The Back beach of Lake Michigan is just one block from the house. It has a relaxing sandy beach and beautiful sunsets. You can walk the kayak to the lake and leave it on the beach during your stay. We also have a fire pit for all your s'mores and stargazing needs and a gas grill.

Let us know if you need to rent a car while you are here. $50/day. 2011 GMC Terrian or a Chevy traverse both are in great condition but a bit dusty due to gravel roads.

Make Mr. Moon's Cottage your home while on Beaver Island.

About Bryan and Becca Foli

5 years ago we were introduced to Beaver Island and fell in love with it! We have been coming to the Island yearly with our three children. in 2016, when we became empty nesters, we relocated from Champaign Illinois to the island. Bryan teaches chemistry, physics and French at the school and Becca works at the community center in the summer and at the school in the fall. We are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives living on the island and being a part of the Beaver Island community.

Bryan and Becca Foli purchased this house in 2014

Why Bryan and Becca Foli chose Northern Michigan

The magic of Beaver Island was an experience we couldn't pass up, and buying a home was the next step. We are lucky to have a home in such a good location and with enough space to have all the family come and share in the fun.

What makes this house unique

There is another small cottage on the property that has a two bedroom apartment and can be rented as well. Being located between the town and the north beach is just perfect.

The house was perfect for our group we had four adults and three children. We visit the island each summer with family and this is one of the nicest homes we have rented.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had eight people, two families, and we we're all very comfortable in this house. Plenty of sleeping areas, and three baths. The house was clean and the deck was lovely to relax on. Close to town and the Beaver island Marina, but set back on a dirt road. Would love to stay here again!

Car: not necessary

Mr. Moon's cottage is one and a half blocks from the town and 2 blocks form the rustic north beach. You are just a short walk from everything the town has to offer. Some favorite places we like to visit while on the island are listed below.

Be sure to visit The Toy Museum, the owner Mary, has wonderful art for sale in her studio behind the museum. It is very affordable. Children love coming to the toy museum and digging through all the trinkets looking for treasures to take home.

The Island Treasures Thrift shop is a great place for all ages to find some good loot! Be sure to check out the 'barn' in the back that has larger items for sale.

Daddy Franks grill and ice cream store should also be on your list for at least one visit, if not daily for the ice cream lover.
