A newly renovated cottage on Long Lake's iconic "Sandies" in Alpena, MI.

About Tom and Nadia Banas
This cottage has been in the family since the 1960's and is filled with years of the most precious family memories. Our children grew up with summers on the lake skiing, tubing, minnow hunting and marshmellow roasting! We are welcoming our first grandchild this summer and prepared for the growing family by adding the new addition. We hope your family will make many memories during your stay and that "The Sand Bar Cottage" will become your favorite family vacation!
Why Tom and Nadia Banas chose Alpena
If the lake and view doesn't sell itself, then possibly a breakfast at Parker house or dinner at Long Lake Bar and Grill will do the trick!! You could easily spend your entire week and never leave the cottage but if you would like explore consider Lee's miniature golf, presque isle light house, and the beaches and piers of Lake Huron.

We had a great stay in a nice house. Worked great for our big group. Had everything we needed. Beautiful setting.
We enjoyed our stay very much! Lovely property and plenty of space for our family.
We had a great stay in July 2019. There were small children and adults and everyone loved it. We’ve stayed in quite a few places in northern Michigan and long lake specifically and this was one of our favorites. The home was clean and spacious. The bed linens and towels were clean and soft, lots of seating inside and out, clean and updated bathrooms, sturdy dock for the boat, on the sandy side of long lake. The owners were easy to communicate with and had a thoughtful basket of goodies waiting for us.
The lake was beautiful! Sandy bottom was great for swimming.
We all had a wonderful time! Will definitely be going back!
Great Stay, Lovely Cottage
This is a lovely spot right on long lake. It is very convenient to Alpena and has lovely outside space and views. We enjoyed the fire pit as it was a bit chilly. Nice to have an extra refrigerator as well! The rooms (other than the loft, which feels more private than a regular loft, and spacious)are small with limited closet and drawer space, but this wasn’t really a problem for us. Bed was comfy. Since we have family in Alpena, we definitely would stay at this cottage again!
We enjoyed our stay. There were 4 couples and there was plenty of room for everyone. The cottage was very clean. The hot water did have a strong sulfur odor at first which some of the guests found objectionable when taking showers. The strong sulfur order decreased some after a day or two. However, there was still a slight odor. We drank bottled water due to the odor. Overall, the cottage was very nice and quiet.
