    So many people visit year round from Michigan, The united States and from around the World! And although most folks only visit for a week or two, most of them always say that they sure wish that they could live here and that they can not wait to come back for another visit! The people who live in Cheboygan can always be counted to help someone out when they are in need! A four seasons offer the best living conditions in Michigan! Thank You Very Much!

    Crime is not a problem in our area! We have our City, Sheriff and State police that are always on patrol and that are always visible!
    Just a wonderful place for families to live all year long!
