Charity Island Lodge utilizes propane gas for heat, lights, refrigeration and cooking. There is an electric start generator that supplies electricity for the water pump as well as other electrical appliances. The recommended procedure is to run the generator once or twice a day to pump up the water storage system and accommodate any other electrical needs. Although the generator is fairly quiet, it can be a distraction to the serenity. A back-up generator is also on site in the event of a mechanical failure. Every effort will be made to provide renters assistance in the event of mechanical trouble with any of the systems with the understanding that travel can take several hours in a “best case” scenario.
Charity Island Lodge draws it’s water directly from Lake Huron. The water is treated through a health department approved, NSF Class A certified potable water system, that is triple filtered and treated by ultraviolet light to make it safe for drinking and all other uses.
