Frequently Asked Questions

What to Bring?

Our cottages are fully equipped with everything you should need for your stay.  Each cottage contains a fully equipped kitchen, brand new beds and linens including sheets, pillows, blankets and comforters.  All kitchens have a refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pots and pans, dinnerware, glassware, silverware, utensils, kitchen towels, a small container of dish soap, and a new scrubby sponge.  Your cottage will have its own BBQ, Picnic Table, and lawn furniture.  All cottages have TV’s.
Some things you would want to bring would be your paper products, paper towels, tissue, and extra toilet paper(we start each rental with 1 roll).  You’ll want to bring your beach towels, since the cottage bath towels need to stay in the cottage.  Also, we start each rental off with a kitchen and bathroom plastic garbage bag but you will need to supply your own garbage bags for the rest of your stay. Other than that all you need to bring is all of your personal gear for your stay.

What is the Weather Like?

The weather in Les Cheneaux varies from 50's to upwards of the occasional 90's in peak of summer. A typical day in the area starts off cool in the mornings, warms into the afternoon and cools back down in the evening. We suggest that you bring a light coat for the morning and evening chill and a raincoat.

The Les Cheneaux Island's Waterways are loaded with Pike, Perch, Bass, Lake Trout, Sunfish, Catfish and the occasional Walleye.

Live and artificial baits work well depending on time of season.
