Charity Island is a beautiful island in the middle of Saginaw bay, and if you want to get there you have to go by boat. There's also a great sunset dinner cruise that you can take to the island. When you get closer, you realize just how big the island is; 222 acres with 3 miles of shoreline and an 11 acre lake. The island itself feels totally removed from civilization.
In addition to our signature "1857 Island Lighthouse Dining Adventure Cruise" Charity Island will be offering the lightkeepers home as a weekly Vacation Rental with a three day minimum Stay beginning September 2013. The five bedroom home rents for $2,500 for six night seven day stay, or $1,200 for a three day stay which includes transportation to and from Charity Island, a 300 acre forested island with three miles of shoreline is managed as a wildlife refuge by the Federal Fish & Wildlife Service. Located in the middle of Saginaw Bay ten miles from shore, ferryboats offering rides to Charity Island depart from both Caseville and East Tawas.
