Beaver Island Michigan 49782
Most people coming to Beaver Island look forward to its abundant nature and solitude. There are also fine museums, gift shops, art galleries, the golf course and tennis courts, Island tours, house parties, classes at CMU, dances, and many shows and special events.
Much of what the Island offers is free for the finding: beachcombing, bird watching, biking, camping, hunting, fishing, cross country skiing, or exploring the other islands. View the shipwrecks, enjoy a kayaking trip or kayak lessons, go scuba diving, treat yourself and relax with an afternoon at the day spa, or explore the Beaver Island archipelago with fishing, island-hopping, lighthouse, or sunset charters.
There are over 100 miles of scenic roads, and too many old trails to count. Abandoned old cabins. Beaver dams. Landscape artifacts that go back thousands of years. The beauty of wildflowers. The more people enjoy just getting away, the more they love Beaver Island. We want you to enjoy the hours, days, or weeks you’ve decided to spend on our unique and pristine Island paradise. Beaver is the most remote inhabited island in the Great Lakes, with a year-round population of 600 – with a large percentage of Irish descent. The residents’ isolation, independence, and respect for the nature and traditions of Beaver Island have made time slow down.
Because Beaver Island offers the quieter, more relaxed kind of vacation or retirement that many people appreciate, visitors frequently become regular vacationers, property owners, summer people, or permanent residents. We welcome you to discover and decide where Beaver Island may fit in your life.
