There’s plenty to be said for a standard vacation in a typical hotel room or even a camping adventure, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to experience a private island in Michigan? While such an excursion might sound unattainable, it’s closer to reality than you might imagine — in fact, one island here in Michigan can be rented at a shockingly reasonable rate. It’s never too soon to start planning your next getaway, so keep this rustic and beautiful locale in mind.
Republic Island is located within the gorgeous Michigamme River near the U.P. community of Republic.
This Marquette County gem is nothing short of spectacular, offering visitors the opportunity to experience Great Lakes State nature in all its splendor. When you’re ready for a genuine escape, look no further.
The island itself is anything but ordinary. In fact, guests can rent out the entire island and its accompanying cottage for surprisingly reasonable rates: standard nightly hover somewhere between $98 and $275.
While the nightly rate climbs above $300 for holidays and other high-demand dates, it typically remains below $300. The amenities, views, privacy, and overall charm of a private island, though, are priceless.
The cottage itself is rustic yet welcoming and comfortable, offering 1,000 square feet of woodsy charm and space for up to four overnight guests. There’s also a full bathroom, kitchen, fireplace, and much more.
Take time to stroll along the scenic riverfront or simply appreciate the serenity of the great outdoors as you roast s’mores around the fire pit. There’s even a television and wifi access if you want to stay connected.
Republic Island is available for rental between May and October, so you’ll want to make your plans accordingly. Whether you’re a fishing enthusiast or more of a casual outdoorsy type, you’ll have a blast.
To reach the island, you’ll take your own boat or the on-site pontoon from the mainland. While the journey across the water is quick, the memories you’ll make during your island adventure will remain forever.
