Is Silver Birches still set to open in 2017 and if so, when?

I've read that Silver Birches on Mackinac Island was supposed to open in 2017 but I cannot find anything on it? What is the progress on it? Is it still set to open in 2017, and if so, what date?

An article I read a few months ago, stated it has an approximate opening date of sometime during the 2018 season.

It's going to be a private home.

It seems pretty clear to me.

A few years before the Wares purchased Mission Point, Liz Ware first came across another historic property, long abandoned, on the island’s north side, surrounded by state parkland. An early 20th-century Adirondack cabin and former hotel known as Silver Birches and two nearby cottages in Point Aux Pins, were both available and became her family’s first island purchases. The Wares are now restoring those properties for private use.

The owners decided to make Silver Birches into a family only vacation cottage. So it will not be open to the general public:(

The Island has gained even more this way, since they took over the long neglected Mission Point and have been putting a lot into updating and upgrading it.
