Our beach cottage rests among the tall trees with a peaceful view for a deeply relaxing experience. There's a gentle breeze and fans to beat the summer heat and a stone fireplace and a small space heater for cool spring and fall evenings. You don’t have to worry about linens and making beds, before you arrive the beds will be made and beach towels will be ready to go so you can start to relax upon arrival. Point Of Woods has a large white sand beach with a boardwalk adjacent to a nature preserve with additional beaches all just a short walk away.
Our cottage was built on the high point of Point O’ Woods in the 1930’s and usually enjoys a pleasant sea breeze. We've created a comfortable, relaxing space, with updated kitchen and bath while maintaining a simple cottage feeling. The kitchen is well equipped and beach gear is available - chairs, umbrellas, floats, sunscreen, toys. There are two hammocks in our shady back yard, a picnic table, a large table and chairs, outdoor shower, and on the side porch is a gas grill with outdoor furniture for dining and lounging.
Point O' Woods is an ideal place for families. Two tennis courts, a modern playground, basketball court, pavilion, boat launch, scenic overlooks, wooded trails, organized beach blanket bingo and movies on the beach organized by the beach association twice a week. The ice-cream truck parks at the beach all day or take a short walk, to "Scoops Ice Cream and Market."
