We are usually here to welcome you or if you're arriving late, we will leave the Boat House unlocked with the keys on the table for your use. We'll leave outdoor and indoor lights for you and see you in the morning. If you'd like to see the train run and see Dave's workshop, please let him know. He is eager to share it. Or we will leave you alone if you wish. Please call us or e-mail us with questions or issues.

This place is awesome, well appointed, and so very welcoming. We wanted quiet and relaxation and it was definitely offered at this locale. We came before peak season but the town is open and the people are as friendly and welcoming as you could hope....More

About the neighbourhood
The Boat House has only a sidewalk separating it from the sandy beach. There is a playground and a tennis court in our community. We are 1 and 1/2 miles from Harbor Springs, an old resort town with restaurants and shops. Petoskey is half and hour away and is our closest city.
Getting around
You will need a car to get around but please bring your bikes too. There are many bike paths around. Also bring your paddle boards, kayaks, skis, snowboards, sleds, and other 'toys' depending upon the season.
