The House

Ahoy, Matey! Welcome to Skull Island where your adventures begin, and your memories are treasured.

Your adventure begins right after you park your car in the gated parking area. You’ll bring your belongings to the dock where you can load it into your boat or use ours. From the dock, the house will be in your view on the island just to the right. THERE IS NO WAY TO DRIVE TO THE ISLAND, IT CAN ONLY BE ACCESSED BY ROWBOAT, YOUR BOAT OR RENTED PONTOON BOAT.

The home is unmistakable and visible from the shoreline.You are about 100 yards or about a five-minute rowboat ride from your destination.

The property is nestled in the woods of the island. The south side sunroom overlooks a 180 degree majestic view of the main body of the lake. From this vantage point you can see all the activities of the main view of Pontiac Lake.  From the kitchen on the north side you have a completely tranquil view of nothing but state land alone the natural side of the shoreline.  In the evening enjoy breathtaking sunsets around the bonfire boasting astronomical views of the big and little dipper in the northern skyline.

Pontiac State Public Beach is a few minutes away and open every day with a state park pass. While at Smuggler’s Cove you will have access to 2 of your own small private beaches located on each side on the house. The storage shed has a wide array of sand building materials for the children.

Skull Island kid’s camp is just on the other side of the island. Check them out on their website or on Facebook.

Water is the way of the pirate so let’s address that. There is a rowboat and paddle boat included with the house at no charge. We are also happy to supply you at no cost the use of adult and child size kayaks to explore the 600+ acre lake. We rent a well-seasoned 12-person pontoon for $199 per night or a newer pontoon can be rented from the multiple local boat liveries. Lounge around the lake or on the dock or deck all day and spend your evenings in Pontiac, Royal Oak, Birmingham, Clarkston, Detroit, Windsor (Canada), or other local hot spot of your choosing. Bring your fishing pole and catch Bass, Bluegill, Pike, Walleye, and other game fish when in season. Barbecue outside or cook inside. Vacation in beautiful Oakland County while enjoying the cozy, yet upscale, Northern Michigan atmosphere of this home. Abundant wildlife in nature sanctuary type setting all around the property. The cottage has additional dock space for your own boat as well.

On weekends you’ll see the locals playing volleyball in the water.
