We went to see the club yesterday... was wondering if anything about the place ...and your thoughts..

memebership is 2 for 1 till the end of March, works out to be 300 per boat. As well, they have rooms to rent for the season if you're a member... thats an additional cost but very inexpensive..., right on Harsens Island, small rooms but at least it a bed and it over looks the water.... not bad at all...

Most likely we'll join but wanted to see if anyone else may be interested??... its just around the bend from the moot...

QUOTE(Intimidator @ Feb 28 2004, 07:27 PM)I know the guy that bought it years ago. Don't know if he still owns it, but he's a good guy. It's pretty hard to beat that location too!
Idle Hour leases the property and buildings from Ken Baker. They have as long as I can remember. Idle hour is the last of 6 Hotels that were on the Island back in the early 1900's . When cars got better and people could drive upnorth 5 of the 6 mysteriously burned down.

They have run membership specials the last couple years. 6 of our Sand Point members joined this year. We usually have one of our outings there around their octoberfest time. Rerun went with me a couple years ago. Its a nice location and yes rubrob you can rent a slip there for the night. Pretty cheap like $25. for me. Don't see many offshores in there though.

thanks for the info!

Ken Baker is who we met with.. loved him immediately... not too worried about whether there are other offshores, just the people in general...

sent the cheque out yesterday after reading the input!!!...

just figured it would be nice for a change of pace once in a while. Being able to spend the night there will be awesome instead of trying to find our way back to Livonia on a Saturday night after spending the day at the moot... sleeping on the boat isn't much of an option at the marina since its rack stored...

I'm guessing with all the people we know there....every weekend is going to be a party.

One thing, C-Girl....make sure you have your own water supply. They don't have safe drinking water at the slips. I think even the bathroom water states it's not safe....NCYC is the same way.

Ken Baker and his family are great and friendly people!!
I knew them when I belonged to NCYC. My brother took his daughter Samantha to his high school prom.
I haven't been to Idle Hour in a vedy vedy long time. When it first opened it seemed very nice.
I guess I'll just have to stop buy this summer.
Maybe another great party location to check out?!?!

Metro's always an option for sure!
My first boat was a 24' baja. We spent every weekend night at Metro for years. Used the showers there and slept in the cuddy cabin. What did we ever do with out AC?

sleeping on the boat is do-able actually...spent many nights out a Metro... the A/C thing would be nice though, we have a portable one.. but never used it. . I think Waterlogged still has it...

Our cottage is about 200 yards away from the Idle Hour and I can tell you they have some pretty good parties a few times a summer. Also, its a good location-- not so far to drive if youve had a few soda's in the bay or on Gull.
