While You Are Here

Please visit www.kelleysisland.com to learn about getting here and what to do while you are visiting the island. Once you arrive on the island, getting to the Waters Edge Retreat couldn’t be easier. As you exit the parking lot of the ferry, simply turn right on Lakeshore Drive and keep going until you arrive at 827 E. Lakeshore Drive. The house is on the left and you won’t be able to miss it. Cars are welcome on the island and we have ample parking for our guests.
