Nice find! I believe this is actually the smaller cousin of the Beaver, a Muskrat. They do have some similarities in appearance, but I believe there are enough differences with the shape of the head and face and hairiness of the ears to make the distinction.
Here are some images of beavers to compare to yours: http://www.beaverremovalmichigan.com/wp-...
