Bois Blanc Island and the Insel Haus offer the perfect mix of cozy with adventure. Christa was a warm and welcoming host. We stayed in the Veranda room, which has the look of a cabin. We put up white lights above above our bed and it felt like there was magic in the air. We spent the afternoon riding our...

My girlfriend and I were blown away by the hospitality the Insel Haus provided. Immediately we were thrusted into "another world" with a getaway to Bois Blanc. The B&B was clean, quiet, and private. The setting was beautiful with views of Lake Huron. We were lucky to have the whole upstairs to ourselves (stayed on a Monday night). We got...

My family looked to travel away from the hustle of life to find this gorgeous 7700 square foot charming bed and breakfast tucked away on a remote island, sounded perfect! We had an easy time reserving our room on-line and we only really needed sleeping quarters, we're used to cabins and close quarters. Studying the island and the bed and...

Many wonderfully charming rooms to choose from, each with their own details and character. (Some good decks for sitting and drinking wine.) Massive house with amazing detail. Breakfast is substantial, has European flair. The hosts are helpful and are interesting to talk with. Overall nice stay!

My fiancé and I just returned from a wonderful stay at the Insel Haus. Our room, "The Veranda" was perfect, surrounded with windows letting in a beautiful breeze and a spectacular view of Lake Huron. Christa and Shelby were great hosts! The home itself and its contents are full of history and Christa is willing to answer all your questions....

Christa’s welcome and sense of hospitality allows you to feel at home right away. The hammock in front of the house was extending an invitation and I took good advantage of it. What a restful place. Breakfast provided choices of meat, cheese, cereals, juices, homemade jams and bread, and was a time for interesting conversation with our hosts. View on...

We had planned to bike on the island with 2 other couples, but the day we arrived it was cold, windy and rainy. We went straight to Insel Haus and walked in to find a warm fire burning in the beautiful fireplace and freshly baked brownies and coffee and tea waiting for us. We were so enthralled with our surroundings...

We spent a wonderful three days and two nights on the island, hiking, camping, sightseeing, and exploring. Our stay at Insel Haus was the capstone to a very peaceful and unique island experience. Like the island itself, Insel Haus is a beautiful respite from the hectic and "touristy" world of the mainland or other island destinations like Mackinac. I loved...

Insel Haus was all we were looking for and more. We wanted to "get away from it all" and it was perfect for that. Great view right out our window of the Straits of Mackinac The owners, Christa and Shelby, were very attentive but not intrusive. Christa prepared a gourmet dinner just for us and it was excellent.
