You don’t get a name like Picture Island without striking a great pose. With a spectacular setting on Lake Huron’s Saint Joseph Channel, Picture Island offers 43 acres of tree-covered, rocky-cliffed beauty, surrounded by waters renowned for their excellent boating, fishing and sightseeing—all in an area popular for more than a century as a prime locale for summer residences.

Picture Island includes a one-bedroom main house connected by decking to a three-bedroom guesthouse. Both are wood-frame construction on concrete pilings, set high above the water and blending beautifully with the surrounding stone and trees. The 2.500-square-foot main house features another 2,500 square feet of surrounding deck and porches; the large eastern-facing front deck delivers views down Saint Mary’s River and toward the open waters of Lake Huron, while the south side of the house has a large covered porch and gazebo. Inside, the house boasts a large kitchen area; a dining area with a big pine table and benches; a living room with beautiful maple floors, a fireplace, and a vaulted ceiling with white cedar walls; and a large library with desks, cabinets and an entertainment center with a projector and screen. There’s also an outdoor kitchen with its own electric stove, sink and countertops for food preparation and dining among the surrounding trees.

Electrical power comes to the island via underwater cable attached to the local power grid, and there’s also a back-up power generator. Water comes from the lake, electrically pumped up the island’s steep hillside into an expansion tank, from which it can either be run through particulate and ultraviolet filters, or run directly into both houses. Picture Island is just a 10-minute boat ride from Kensington Point Marina on the mainland, which in turn is less than an hour’s drive from the beautiful Canada-U.S. border city of Sault Ste. Marie.
