Yes, You Can Rent a Private Island in Michigan

And it comes with your very own lakefront log cabin, too.

We could all use an escape right about now. How about social distancing on your very own private island for a week or weekend?

From the Owner:

This property is called Zeron’s Island and is truly a real 8-acre island on an 785-acre lake in northern Michigan with over 2000 feet of sandy shoreline.

This beautiful private island property with stunning views and luxurious amenities is the perfect getaway. Relax on your very own private island paradise in upper Michigan.

The original cabin on the island from the early 1900s was partially saved and used as an extra sleeping area for air beds or sleeping bags for larger groups. This property is one of a kind and a definite bucket list place to visit in Pure Michigan summers.

Enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, campfires, hiking, yard games, board games, BBQs, and many more relaxing family fun activities!

When you arrive, they have kayaks, stand up paddleboards, a canoe, and a paddle boat available for guest use at no extra charge. The swimming area is sandy and great for kids.

The island gets rave reviews:

This place was absolutely wonderful. It had everything that we needed plus plenty of space to fit our group of 15. The house was very clean and beautiful with perfect amenities and the lawn was great to fit all of our tents and yard games. The island itself was beautiful with a great walking path and was extremely dark at night which made for beautiful star gazing. The beach was also perfect for the kids. It was very shallow and big enough that the kids played on it and in the water the whole weekend. This was one of the best places I have ever been too. Will definitely be back. ~Shelby

Having the entire island to ourselves was amazing. We had people ranging in age from 8 to 75 and everyone had a blast (including our two dogs). The cabin is really nice and there wasn’t anything that we needed that wasn’t there. Definitely a vacation that we won’t ever forget! Everyone is already asking when we can go back! ~Tiffany M.

This is our second stay. We have always enjoyed the island. The facilities are up to date. We never get to do everything we want to. Three days are not enough. We can’t wait to get back next year. Joe is very professional and a really cool guy. I have enjoyed working with him for the past two years. He is very responsive to our needs. Zeron’s is worth every penny. ~Dwight E.
