After attending a three-day conference on Mackinac Island, our four-night stay at Cook's beachfront cottage on Bois Blanc Island was just what the doctor ordered!
We found the cottage in perfect condition, nice and clean, and well-furnished. The online description by the owner was 100% accurate. We enjoyed the peaceful solitude and the waves lapping on the shoreline during the evening and night time, as we read and dozed in the well-appointed living room.
We visited Mary's Lake, the North Shore, the Bible Farm, Hawk's Landing Island Store, and Bob Lo Tavern. At both the store and tavern (twice!) we found the locals most friendly, helpful, and quite personable; a good time was had by both of us.
And we met the friendly next-door neighbors Pam and Dave, who invited us to join them at their campfire on the beach at sunset -- very mellow, and it was a pleasant social time.
We could of easily stayed another week there at the cottage, enjoying the view, the weather, and the most laid-back vacation in quite a while, but, alas, work and other family obligations called us to return to the mainland.
We would highly recommend this cottage and location to anyone wanting to take a few days respite from the stress and strain of daily living.
Please keep in mind that there's no WiFi at this location, but our cell phone and texting services (AT&T) worked well, allowing us to keep in touch with family.
Although we were two older adults traveling without children, I would note that there were enough activities to keep children occupied for a number of days -- DVD's and videos for the TV, games, puzzles, and children's books. Plus, swimming in the lake, some fishing and hiking activities, exploring the Huron lake shore, etc., should and would make for a wonderful family vacation.
Complaints? We have none -- it was a perfect, relaxing, and most wonderful four-day mini-vacation. And should there be any questions or a need for more info, please contact us.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to stay at Cook Cottage. Karen provided all of the info we needed in advance and answered all of my questions. The cottage was situated in a beautiful place with spectacular views of the sunrise. It was well stocked with linens & towels, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals m. There was even a helpful booklet with cottage & island info provided upon check-in. The beds were comfy and we even found games in the closet. We knew this time of year was bug season, but bug spray & netted hats took care of the worst times, while other times the bugs weren’t present at all. We drove 1 mile to the Coast Guard Chapel, visited Lake Mary, traversed Bible Road to the North Shore & viewed the sunset & Mackinac Bridge from the West end of the island. The water levels are high right now, so my kids could swim safely because it was shallow for a very long distance. The shore & water are rocky, so water shoes were helpful. The bottom was clean & the water was clear, so the rocks didn’t bother us at all. We enjoyed watching loons, geese & seagulls in the water & having campfires on the beach. The neighbors were friendly & gave us a heads-up about the moon rising. I’ve never seen anything as unique as the moon rising from the horizon of Lake Huron! I’ll never forget it. I highly recommend Cook Cottage to others seeking a quiet retreat.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Cook Cottage on Bois Blanc Island. You are right the moon rising over Lake Huron is truly a memorable sight. You are welcome back anytime!
Second time I have been to the island in just as many years. First time staying here. It was absolutely perfect! Plenty of room inside and out. Plenty of seating inside and out as well. Will definitely be back again, unless I buy my own land up there!
Brian - So glad you enjoyed your time at Cook Cottage. We would love to have you stay again or to have you as neighbors!
This charming cottage, overlooking crystal clear blue water, is just heavenly. We loved it!
My family and I had the most amazing 4 days on BBI: catching frogs, marveling at amazing rocks, waking up for sunsets and just relaxing. Cook Cottage was peaceful and just what I was seeking to escape the stresses of everyday life (at least until the last night, when we had some very loud neighbors move in to Grandpa Bob’s).
We really enjoyed exploring the island, seeing wildlife and the friendliness of the islanders.
We would absolutely love to come back sometime.
Great experience in amazing location. Highly recommended.
Campfires, kayaking, biking, turquoise waters and great family memories
Family memories are precious. So glad you were able to make some good ones at Cook Cottage. You are welcome back anytime!!
