This resort was originally built by the founder of Domino's Pizza, but more importantly, was designed by the Dean of Architecture at Yale. It is Northwoods spectacular and laid back. From the lodge rooms to the cottages, it has a variety of accommodations that will please anyone. Many of the lodge rooms have been updated with lighter walls/ceilings that really work. Ask for an updated room. If you like the outdoors there's plenty to do. Wildlife abounds, and more than once we've come across bear droppings but fear not. They avoid us. You can read the other reviews that talk about kayaking, biking, hiking and all that. But Drummond is so special. Their golf course, The Rock, is gorgeous and challenging. Guaranteed you'll see deer. Just pay attention to the time of year as it's one insect hatch after another up north. Bring Deet just in case.
For us, the highlight is their gourmet restaurant, Bayside. I can't say enough about the superb quality of their food, and they've maintained their standards over the ten years since we got engaged at Drummond Island Resort. You can't come without dining there at least once, and you can eat outside on their patio too.
Getting there is easy, and the ferry ride is fun. Check online for the schedule, and in the summer they run more frequently as traffic demands. On our way back Saturday afternoon, the line to come across stretched for blocks in Detour Village, so allow for that.
Close to the resort is a fantastic deli, Gourmet Galley, where you HAVE to have lunch. Split a sandwich, have a handmade milkshake or a glass of wine. Anyway, it's great. And there's decent shopping on the island at four corners if you like Woolrich. Great assortment. If you haven't experienced Drummond, please do. Most people in the UP depend on tourism to survive, and they're great people so give it a look. Oh..and Drummond Island Resort is a great place to have a destination wedding. Give it some serious attention.
