About Us

Passion. Desire. Goal.

A passion for nature. A desire for independence. A goal to have an impact.

What would you do if you went on vacation to one of the most remote places in the United States, in the middle of a Great Lake, and found yourself thinking about it every single day for over a year? Would you go back again? And again?

What would you do if every time you went back to that amazing place it became more and more special and started to feel like home, like you belonged, like the people on the island were your friends? What would you do?

When passion, desire, and a goal combine, the world can change.

Our passion for nature made us fall in love with Beaver Island. We found ourselves replenishing our weak, weary bones with short island vacations from hectic jobs and busy lives. We found ourselves in need of the island’s dark skies and the whisper of the wind that carries love’s innocence as it grazes the ferns. The island was the catalyst for independence; we had a desire to be liberated from the structure and self-created obligations tying us down, free to follow an unusual bird singing it’s song along an overgrown trail at a given moment. We wanted to get lost in the silence, no time constraints or worry. And, we had a goal to positively impact others, to protect the island while sharing its incredible, life-changing power and its welcoming community.

What would you do?

What we did was build an experience to share with the world.
