Where to Stay
Coming for a sail aboard Schooner Huron Jewel?
As Drummond Island is a destination, rather than a place to pass through, there are a lot of fun and interesting activities to enjoy before and after your trip aboard Schooner Huron Jewel. There are so many options, including enjoying the tranquility and peace of sitting by a campfire along the shore, that you'll want to rent a place to spend a few nights or even a week.
If you're seeking the perfect accommodations at a reasonable rate for your next trip to Drummond Island, be sure to reserve some time at Chickadee House. This delightful 2-bedroom, 3-bath home can comfortably sleep 10, boasts a covered porch with swings overlooking peaceful Bass Cove. On the water, looking out on open Lake Huron will give you beautiful sunrises and sunsets and you're close to the state lands to enjoy the trails and woods. Few places can claim to be as beautiful as Drummond Island - see for yourself while staying at Chickadee House. Open year round.
Chickadee House is a charming Cape Cod, described by previous guests as roomy, comfortable, spacious, homey, lots of natural light and private. Built as a year round home, Chickadee House offers you all the luxuries for your home away from home.
Perfect for family getaways and long stay vacations.
You'll find the home's interior tastefully decorated, hardwood floors, and stocked with all the amenities you want, including free WiFi, TV and DVD player, ceiling fans throughout, and a living room with view of the water and plenty of space for the entire family.
Sleeping arrangements include 4 queen beds, 1 downstairs and 3 upstairs, 2 twin beds on the upper level, with computer desk and carpeted play space.
A beautiful dining room looks out onto the back yard and deck. A pass through counter separates dining area from the kitchen, which is equipped with all the necessary supplies for delicious home-cooked meals and fun family dinners, including a Viking gas stove and oven, convection oven, microwave oven, dishwasher and spacious refrigerator and freezer.
Sip your morning coffee on the front porch watching the birds on the cove or outside on the back deck as deer walk through the yard.
Bring the bird food and enjoy a variety of migrating and local feathered residents at the feeders. Keep an eye out for the local osprey. Enjoy the state trails, or swim out the back door in the protected waters of Bass Cove. And be on the watch for freighters or schooners passing in the distance.
At the end of the day roast some tasty s'mores at the fire pit in on the shore, where you can tell stories while the Milky Way and shooting stars pass overhead.
