Where you’ll be

Cedarville, Michigan, United States

One of only two islands with road access in a beautiful archipelago of 37 named islands. Enjoy the tranquility of Island #8 with safe biking, walking and water activities right on your doorstep. If you prefer you can simply relax, look out for eagles and ospreys fishing and take in the views in the daytime or watch for the milky way and track satellites after dark. This is a very quiet neighborhood with unlimited opportunities for outdoor fun and exploration!

I am a retired scientist, married to Debbie for 30+ years and have 3 children and a growing number of grand kids. We now enjoy all season retirement in the beautiful Les Cheneaux Islands in Michigan's Eastern "UP". In winter we ski and travel. In summer biking, fishing, boating, and various "homework projects" keep us busy. In my spare time I enjoy playing stringed instruments and making music with good friends!
