Bois Blanc Island is located in the Straits of Mackinac, top of the "hand" that is Michigan. One reaches the Island by ferry from Cheboygan, a few miles southeast of Mackinac City. From the Island's west end one can see the Mackinac Bridge and Mackinac Island, and from the north shore one can barely see the Upper Peninsula. The largest settlement on the Island is Pointe aux Pins; other cottages are scattered among the trees. There are several inland lakes. Amenities are few, but include a general store, two chapels, the Hoover Community Building, a postoffice, a tavern, an airport, and a one-room Pines School.
