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. Very walkable. 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. In the living room there is a comfy fold out sofa. 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 for watching movies on the 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. There is a full size really comfy futon as well (it can no longer be pulled out but you can lay the futon on the floor for extra sleeping.)

We also have a fire pit for all your s'mores and stargazing needs and a gas grill. A kayak for use at your own risk. We will not be held responsible for injury. Bikes in the garage can be used as well.

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 Beaver Island

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.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Owners very helpful with any request. Had a map available with the sites to visit and directions. Very clean house with lots of natural light. Bikes available, but it was a little cold for us to use the kayak or canoe. Short distance to any place in town made it ideal for walking or biking. House had two living areas, one on each level. One could see the bay from the main living area or the large deck at the front of the house. We enjoyed our stay at Mr. Moon's Cottage on Beaver Island! Yes, we would stay there again.

Beaver Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Beaver Island... Mr. Moon's Cottage and the Foli's absolutely made this trip! We were picked up from the airport and greeted with a welcome sign (which made us feel extra special); in addition, we were given a personal tour of the island on the drive back to the rental house. The house itself was a wonderful oasis to get away from the crazy of regular life. There wasn't much open in October on the island, but we were able to walk to the grocery store and the Shamrock quite easily. The grocery store had a great selection (even for myself, who needed gluten free options), but they do close around 6pm that time of year, so make sure you bring over dinner fixings if you are arriving any later! We didn't anticipate needing a vehicle, but we decided last minute that it would be fun to check out the locations that the Foli's suggestion and the rental option was perfect. Mr. Moon's Cottage was wonderfully decorated and came complete with a great selection of kitchen supplies. We are already planning our return trip for next year! Thank you Bryan and Becca!! We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Candice. It was wonderful meeting you and your friends. A really good time is the third week in July when the 3-day Music Fest is happening deep in the woods. It seems like after Memorial Day there is something going on every weekend on the island. And the grocery store stays open until 8! We hope to see you next summer.

We had a great time!

Bright, fresh and comfortable home in a wooded setting. Bedrooms were very comfortable. 2 1/2 bathes with lots of hot water and towels. We walked into town a couple of times. Fun and relaxing. We would definitely return.

Wonderful, Welcoming Cottage!

Mr, Moon's cottage was delightful. It was clean, charming, comfortable and the hosts were welcoming and accommodating. Its location is perfect for walking to the shore, to town and in the woods. We wanted to stay indefinitely!

Great accomadations and super location on Beaver Island!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good stay for five adults at Mr. Moon's Cottage for three nights in Sept. Having a car rental from the cottage owners made it very easy to explore the island and also have transportation to the wedding venue of our family member. I think we had the best place to stay on the island at a reasonable price and great location. The cottage was just as the pictures portray, very comfortable and great amenities. We only cooked one meal there since we wanted to try the restaurants on the island, but would have used the kitchen and grill if we were staying longer. We walked to the close by beach, which was very nice, but did not have the time to really enjoy that. A very great place which we would highly recommend.

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.
