You Can Rent an Entire Island in Northern Michigan on AirBnb
And there are openings as soon as the end of August.
For a mere $825 per night (we're joking, that's a lot, but it's still cool), you can have an ENTIRE ISLAND in Northern Michigan all to yourself. Luckily, the cabin on Zeron's Island (near Lupton) sleeps 12, so you can go in on it with other families and cut costs a bit. Or, what the hell - you and your sweetie can splurge and have the entire 8 acres ALL FOR YOU.
This property is called Zeron's Island and is truly a real island on an 850-acre lake in northern Michigan. With an A-frame log cabin ran on 32 solar panels and is completely off-grid with all the amenities of a luxury home but in a cabin! Log burning fireplace, full-size kitchen with bar top seating for 3, flat-screen HD TV with full surround sound, Wi-Fi, granite countertops, hardwood floors, stand up glass surround shower, full bath with outdoor access, and endless activities. We have two wood deck lookout points on both sides of the island to see all of the beautiful views and a mile-long hiking trail connecting them with the cabin. There are kayaks, stand up paddleboards, a canoe, with the option to rent 4 different pontoon boats for transportation back and forth to the mainland. There is a patio area with a built-in lakeside fire pit, firewood supplied, and beautiful outdoor kitchen/BBQ area for grilling and late-night cookouts. Plenty of, top of the line, outdoor patio furniture for dinner under the stars. Huge green grass lawn area for yard games like corn hole, ladder ball, or tossing around the football. Board games and ping pong are available for rainy days. 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.
We've always wondered what it looks like to have your own private island all to yourself, and now we know. We can't afford it, but we know.
