Private Island on the Michigamme River in Michigan's Upper Peninsula
- 1000-1200 Sq Ft
- 3 (Sleeps 4)
- Pets Allowed
- Boat Accessible
Electricity, running water, a land-line phone and now new wi-fi internet are some of the creature comforts on this rustic island. Enjoy the wildflowers and wilderness. Rustic Decor throughout. High beam ceilings. Kitchen, breakfast bar, bathroom with shower, plus a gorgeous natural wood-burning cobblestone fireplace warms the living room. TV (2 channels)/VCR/DVD. Linens provided.
An open mind and flexibility are keys to fun here. The island is only Water-access only. Be your own captain! A Jon boat (best in low water), pontoon (best in high water) with electric motor, canoe, aluminum boat, and a paddle boat for 2 are all provided for your sole use during your stay.
Off-street and alongside road parking. Republic Island is the home of excellent fishing, bird watching (a bald eagle nests nearby), and canoeing.
Requirements for Island: You are able-bodied enough to be able to drive/row the boat/canoe, if needed. Plus you should have decent agility to walk up and down the uneven walkways. A positive, flexible attitude is essential for a good experience. As a Special Education teacher by trade, I wish we could find a way to accommodate all abilities in the Republic Island experience. While you do not need to be an athlete, at least an average level of agility is definitely required in order to have a positive experience for you and your family.

Yes, there are animals on the island. This is not Disney World. We have seen snakes (non-poisonous), raccoon, skunks, mice and squirrels, to name a few. Deer, moose and bear have not been known to come directly onto the island, yet it would be possible, if they wanted to swim. If you are uncomfortable being so close and surrounded by real nature, then we have other properties where you may be more comfortable.
