This is such a beautiful picturesque location. We have clear, clean lake water with a sandy bottom. Great for swimming and water sports, fishing and snowmobiling in the winter! Many hiking trails, ski hills, waterfalls, national forest parks, etc. nearby. Almost all of the small towns have great little shops to find something unique. There is truly something for everyone in the great Northwoods!


Very Good! 4.1/5 -

We absolutely enjoyed our time here.

  • 5 of 5

The house had plenty of space for the nine of us with two queen beds, two twin beds and two sofa sleepers. The lake was amazing and beautiful. The early risers enjoyed each morning by drinking coffee, sitting by the campfire, looking over the lake, and reading.

It served as a great home-base for our day trips to all of the wonderful hiking in the area. Favorites included the Porcupine Mountains and Bond Falls State Park. We

Also enjoyed the canoe and rented paddle boards for fun on the lake.

The housekeeper and owner were very attentive and responded quickly to questions or concerns.

It was just what we needed!

Awesome piece of property in a fabulous location...

  • 4 of 5

Five us stayed here for 4 nights over the week of July 4th, 2017. My wife and I, and my 3 young adult daughters. We love the UP (we are from south-central Michigan, and this location was perfect for the many hikes and waterfalls in the area.

The cottage itself was cozy, clean, and plenty big enough for the 5 of us. Though we did not use it much, the satellite TV and Wi-Fi worked great. The closeness of the lake and the view of the lake from inside were both better than we had hoped for-very picturesque. Even my kids found themselves just sitting and peacefully staring out at the lake for long periods of time. The lake was great for swimming, sandy bottom and shallow a long way out. We did a little fishing and did not catch anything, but that was our fault.

The drawbacks were minor to us, but may be important to someone else. For instance, the sauna was not functioning. Also, there was not really an outdoor grill, though I found a tiny Weber charcoal grill in the garage and tried to use that (but it was too small to really cook for 5). We were surprised that the place had not been weed-whacked in a long time; it made the place look uncared for. The weeds were so high that they would get caught in the door when we closed it, and they were terribly high around the fire pit. They had a nice canoe, but only one adult vest, so bring a vest or two if you plan to canoe. As I mentioned, these were minor issues for us, but were promised in the "amenities" when we looked up the property. We did pay top dollar to stay there, so these little details surprised us.

But don't get me wrong, I highly recommend this place to anybody. The location, the accommodations, and the lake were all fantastic. You will not be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thank you Tim for staying at our Sandy Beach lake home. We're so happy you had time to just enjoy the views! More life vests are on their way, unfortunately, they seem to have left with previous guests. Your feedback is appreciated and will be addressed. We hope you return and see our 5 star home!

What a nice getaway! I loved the cozy feeling of the home and we got to ice fish right in front of the place... Great little place down the road for food and drink called the Hoop N' Holler! We went on day trips and found the Bond Falls.. Beautiful.. the kids skied at two different lodges and the owners were awesome! Cant wait to come back! Thanks for a nice place to vacation.

No snow

  • 5 of 5

unfortunately we were not able to use the property due to poor snow conditions. Owner was kind enough to offer a "rain check " until next season. We look forward to next year, Think snow!

Snowmobilers Beware!!!!

  • 2 of 5

First I do want to say that this was a very nice home and was very spacious and had everything you would need when being inside the home.

The renter however is not snowmobiler friendly in my opinion. With the recent warm ups everywhere the conditions were not good for riding and I tried to cancel but was told no to a refund then tried to book on other open dates and was told no sorry we do not do that.

We were forced into coming up or just pissing away our rental fees for the days we booked.

If you book this home buy renters insurance so you can cancel at any notice because this renter will not budge. Lesson learned for us but we have never had someone hold us to the rentals if conditions were bad and even one of our guys rented a sled and the rental place took it back early and gave him a full refund no questions asked knowing how bad the conditions were.

Rent with caution is all I will say to anyone looking to stay here.

Owner's Response: Our rental cancellation policy is that of VRBO's guidelines and are clearly expressed. We can not have someone cancel 2 days before their trip and expect a full refund. We have guests book several months ahead of time, we block the calendar, it is not a "weather-permitting" booking. That being said, the lake was still rideable and it did snow during your stay. It's unfortunate your rating of our property is low and unfair, solely based on your wanting to cancel.

Nice home on Lake Gogebic

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples that stayed at the Sandy Beach house for a snowmobile weekend. The living room area was great for sitting around and talking after a long day of riding. The kitchen is a little on the small side, but is very well set up and worked great for us. The caretaker was very helpful during our stay. The house is huge for a 3 bedroom house, and the side of the house without bedrooms gets a little chilly so we only used it for hanging our snowmobile clothes. Our only issue was the 2 twin beds weren't very comfortable. Thanks for a great stay!
