About Sandy

This is one of three of our vacation home rentals we have been in the vacation rental business for 20 years.

Sandy purchased this house in 2010

Why Sandy chose Dollar Bay

This house is on Portage Lake and is conveniently located to all the exciting special events, attractions, and recreational opportunities in the Keweenaw Peninsula. Michigan Tech University and Finlandia University are only 6 miles. The well-designed kitchens and the charcoal grill make cooking easy for those who want to eat at home rather than going out to eat.

What makes this house unique

This home is also a model home featuring Golden Eagle Log Homes. I am an Independant Dealer for Golden Eagle Homes. All three of our vacation rentals are Golden Eagle Log Home packages.

Excellent for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

This is a large northwoods style home with two levels and a large full kitchen on each floor. Its great for family gatherings. We stayed here with our 4 kids and 8 grandkids and had plenty of room for them to have their own sleeping space. The quality of the materials and craftsmanship is top notch. Sound does not travel much between rooms, so it was easy to put the kids to bed and shut the door so grown-ups could hang out in the main living rooms. The view of the lake is awesome and it has a large front yard for the kiddos to play. Sandy, the owner, is great and was immediately available for a couple of minor questions/needs. Highly recommended.

What a spectacular place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. Sandy was very responsive and made our stay one to remember. There was more than enough space for our group of friends and family that came together to enjoy Winter Carnival. Very convenient to the Tech campus - sure different than the housing we had as students 30 odd years ago! :)
