The largest island in Lake Michigan, Beaver Island hosts many activities for every nature lover. The year round population is approximately 600 – with a large percentage of Irish descent.

Summer ends in all its glory slowly gliding away. The robes of color in the past few days welcome the tapestry of Autumn as our Island moves into another beautiful season. Lucky to have such talented photographers capturing the last days of this season. See MoreSee Less
