A last minute decision to visit Beaver Island. Bill, the owner, had a cancellation, so he fit us in, and picked us up at the local airport. While their might be high brow facilities somewhere on this largest of Lake Michigan islands, Beaver is petty laid back and country nice. Caribbean clear water and refreshing breezes.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Emerald Isle Hotel on Beaver Island. Although this hotel was likely a nice place when new it has been neglected, likely because the current owner is trying to sell and doesn't want to invest any more money. After our check-in we finally ended up in the third room. Previous rooms had maintenance... More

My husband and I stayed at the Emerald Isle and suggest it to others who are going to Beaver island. Bill was extremely accommodating and a welcoming host. By the way, there is no air conditioning on Beaver Island any where as far as I can tell, not just at the Emerald Isle. The rooms are spacious , all the... More

This hotel is the newest constructed hotel on the island, but here are a few things you should know before you go: Decor is 1990's, No telephones, No A/C, you can hear the upstair's rooms water flow, traffic and the dog barking across the street, clean but not white glove clean, 19" TV w/ built in VCR!, Channels are a...

The hotel is located within walking distance from the main street of the island which is right on the beach. The island experience should not be missed! You won't believe you are in the United States. The hotel rooms are pretty good and clean. Everyone is extremely nice and the owner even drove us to the ferry boat! There are... More

The Emerald Isle is very nice for an "Up North" accomodation. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and spacious, with a kitchenette in each. We weren't expecting a 5-star resort. Bill was gracious and accomodating. Yes, there were some things that didn't work, as others have said. After experiencing life on Beaver Island, you understand some of the unique challenges of renovations... More

Emerald Isle has the potential to be great. On the surface the rooms seem fine, but lots of odd problems. Everything seems cheap (and not in a good way). A bit of professional renovation would go a long ways. Springs on the hide-a-bed are shot. Half the windows do not work. Bath tub constantly leaking. Chairs falling apart. VERY minimal... More

I first stayed at the Emerald Isle when I brought my family to Beaver Island for the first time five years ago. We now make Beaver Island our annual vacation destination and have stayed at the Emerald Isle every year since. It is an absolutely wonderful hotel with a kitchen in every room. The rooms are very clean and are... More

Room included a small kitchenette with stove, fridge and microwave. It was clean but not brand new by any means. Weird that there were no hooks anywhere in the room! The toilet seat was nearly falling off but we asked Bill to fix it and it was done within an hour.
