Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

A 2 bedroom, one bath beach cottage located 15 miles north of Menominee Mi perfect for the family of 4-6 or 2-3 couples year round. 100 feet of private sand beach with beautiful sunrises and views of Door County. The cottage is semi-secluded surrounded by evergreens with the owner’s vacation home to the south and a modern vacation home to the north. 700 feet off the state highway on a deep lot.

The cottage was remodeled in late 2011 and additional renovations in 2017, including a screen porch. The house comes equipped for a relaxing vacation with the amenities today’s busy families expect. Also equipped with appliances and a complete kitchen for preparing great meals. 40” flat screen with satellite TV/DVD and game connectivity. Wireless Internet to stay connected or check in at the office. 2 bedrooms include one queen pillow-top bed and a double 'full over full' bunk bed in the second bedroom. A queen sized sleeper-sofa is located in the living room.

Lounge on the beach and watch the local bald eagle families cruise the shore, take a day trip to Door County or many Michigan’s UP sights, rent ATV’s locally and ride the local trails, hire a local charter fishing boat or just relax with a good book.

The cottage is close to thousands of acres of state land in Menominee County for whitetail deer hunting and hunting groups are welcomed. For fisherman, this can be an excellent home base to fish the waters of Green Bay with Little Bay De Noc to the north (35 miles) down the Green Bay shoreline and into the bay. Ample parking for boat trailers or RV's is available on site.

About Beth Horvath

Greetings from Greg and Beth (Sandahl) Horvath! Thanks for your interest in our vacation home. We grew up in Menominee County and enjoy returning to the shores of Green Bay for relaxing times on the beach. We spend our time between our current vacation home, which is next door, and Milwaukee where Greg's office is located. In the summer, for the most part we call this home as we are avid boaters and keep one of our boats in Menominee Mi. We are both retiree's of a major Fortune 50 firm in downstate Michigan with Greg continuing his career as a management consultant with a Big 4 firm.

Beth Horvath purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Beth Horvath chose Menominee

We grew up in the area. Our rental property 'Sandahls On The Beach' is adjacent to our home. We chose this location for its proximity and seclusion and for its excellent natural beachfront.

What makes this cottage unique

This property has beautiful natural Lake Michigan beachfront with clean sand and shallow sandbars for children to play. There are beautiful views of the sun rising over Door County and some equally stunning moon rises during the summer months. The cottage is semi-secluded with a deep lot off the highway surrounded by vacation homes providing very private beachfront experience. Several bald eagle families regularly cruise the shoreline.

We continue to update and remodel the beach house. In 2017, we added a screen porch to provide shade and shelter from the sun or rain. Satellite internet connectivity allows guest to stay connected if they choose. We frequently travel the UP during ATV trips using cottage rentals. We wanted our rental to feature new, fresh, quality amenities with as many comforts of home as we could provide.

Families will enjoy the quality beach, satellite TV and internet connectivity.

Sportsmen will value being centrally located to hunt and fish in Menominee County. Couples will enjoy the privacy and seclusion.

Great Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a really nice place to get away to. It's very private even though there are neighbors. The beach is beautiful. There's plenty of outdoor space, chairs to lounge, a fire pit, screened in porch, side deck, it's all great. The inside of the cottage is very nicely updated and comfortable. I would recommend bringing bottled water for drinking and making coffee rather than drinking the well water. It's not bad, but a little yellow, definitely fine for showers. I didn't see an air conditioner unit as described in the listing, but it was cool enough with the doors and windows open when we stayed. It didn't get over mid to high 70's.

It was nice that, unlike other rentals, you don't have to do your own cleaning of everything before you leave. That's all taken care of for you. All you have to do is start the dishwasher and put the towels in the hamper. It was so easy!

I really can't say enough about this little cottage. It was beautiful, the location was gorgeous and I'd absolutely stay again!

Better than I imagined!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted a beach vacation where I as a mom could actually relax with my kids. This was perfect! I didn’t have to eagle eye them on the beach, there was plenty to do around the area and the house was perfect.

Lovely cottage on Green Bay.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was lovely inside....very clean and well decorated. Kitchen is ample with all of the basics. It was very, very hot during our 3 day visit and there is no air conditioning. We could open the screened windows but the two sliders didn't have screen doors so they had to remain closed . This was especially difficult in the evening. It would have been nice to feel the breeze and listen to the waves. The cottage is good if you don't want seclusion. It is quite close to the main house and they have a motorcycle and ATV.

Very nice place if you have children....with access to the lake and local parks.

Beautiful view and cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed over Labor Day weekend and enjoyed every bit of it! The pictures don't do the cottage justice! The views are beautiful and the sound of the waves was so peaceful. Though it was cooler during our stay we were able to spend one day at the beach reading and lounging. Bring bug spray for the biting flies though. Once we sprayed they didn't bother us. We even saw the sun rise which was a beautiful sight. We went into town one day and ate at Murrays Irish pub which was tasty and definitely recommend. The cottage itself is clean, spacious, and cozy. If we are ever in the UP again we would definitely stay here again. Thank you Beth and Greg for sharing your slice of paradise with us!
