Bobby Sands - A Log House on a Sand Beach

Bedrooms 3

Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

New subscription fees. No thanks. I will not be renewing. Home Away and VRBO has turned to just a scam sheet. Over 500.00 a year plus a 95.00 fee to guests. No wonder my inquiries have dropped to near nothing. It's as bad as flying on a domestic airline.

This is a 2100 sq. ft. log home on the shore of Green Bay across

from Door County, Wisconsin. We

look at it from the porch. This site has added a 95.00 booking fee which is outrageous. What We have is a modern, fully furnished home that sits

right on the beach in Cederville Township, Mi. directly across from Gills Rock. The beach is all sand and one can walk for miles in either direction.

There are sand bars out front in the water, the water is very warm and crystal clear. This is the only rental in this area with a beach you can use. The other areas are rock and muck. There is a municipal harbor and boat ramp 4 miles down the road and very good

fishing at the same place. The area is rural and the vista off the lake side porch is quite grand. The home is fully prepared for your visit.

However, you do have to bring your own towels or sheets. We furnish everything you might need except food. Some non shedding dogs are permitted on a case by case basis. We have not had very good luck with dogs so we likely wont accept one.

Fully stocked kitchen, with full stove and refrigerator as well as everything else you might need to cook or bake anything you want. We have a gas and coal grill on the porch as well as old glider to relax and enjoy the view. Because the lake is all sand at this location you can walk the beach or on any of the sand bars for miles and miles. There are very few houses around and the beaches are normally empty. We park our motor boat on and anchor out front between the sand bars and we keep our small sailboat out front in the same place, but on a permanant anchor all summer. So, if you have your own boat, bring it up. The interior of the house is very modern with comfortable and relaxing couches. We have a Dish and antenna, a vcr, dvd, receiver and DSL, as well as Netflix Streaming Our Dish brings in Chicago Local Chanels. For years we have provided linen and sheets, however this is proving problematic. Thus we are now not going to provide towels and linen. As such you will need to bring your own. The last straw was a youngster apparently was playing with a magic marker in the upstairs bedroom and a very expensive sheet ended up pretty much ruined and then he decided to play with it on the rug which is now in need of replacement. . This not the first time so accept our apology, but please bring your own sheets and towels. Also, we are not accepting dogs any more. Everyone has a "well behaved dog" and more often that not we come back to a disaster. So, thats it for dogs. Please Note that we have a specific cancellation policy: Once we have received your funds and you must cancel we will send your money back if no one else has requested your time period. However if we have turned away someone and can't get them back we can't refund your money unless another party offers to rent for your time period. We will open the calendar if you can't come, but just be aware and committed. There are no refunds if you need to cancel within 30 days and no one else takes your time period.

Lovely place, lovely view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home for a week. The owner was very flexible with our last minute plans and was easy to work with. The house itself is beautiful! The description didn't prepare us for how lovely the home was! Everything was perfect and it was truly a pleasure to stay there. We loved watching the bald eagles and boats passing by with the binoculars provided by the owner. The beach is close for a quick breath of fresh air but there are many beautiful areas within a manageable drive--one especially beautiful area is the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore which is about an hour an a half north of this cabin. Well worth the drive! The entire experience was a perfect getaway for a busy family. We felt at home and relaxed. Definitely would like to return!

Relaxing beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay last year at "Bobby Sands". I would say the only negative was that it was a little close to the road and when we first pulled up, the exterior looked a little worn compared to the pictures. But keeping an open mind and exploring the wonderfully kept up interior I began to relax as the kids and I enjoyed a wonderful beach and a very comfortable home. It had all the comforts of home plus a beautiful view and wonderful master suite with a staircase that overlooked the main living room. There was wifi access and the owner was very helpful when I had questions and had car trouble he helped me find a place in town. He was very accessible through e-mail throughout our trip and let us use beach chairs and beach toys during our stay. We loved it! The kids have a wonderful memory of our vacation and it makes me want to continue to explore the wonderful beaches of Lake Michigan!:)

Owner's Response: The exterior is not worn. The summer before the entire house was ground down bare wood and then re-finished. It looks better than the day it first went up 10 years ago. It took us 200 hours to do it. I am devastated.

Swimming, sailing, boating, fishing, off road trails, beach fires

and hiking. This is a special part of the North Woods and everyone

who has ever stayed here has loved it and most come back every year.

There is a security deposit required and you can opt to clean up

your self or pay a cleaning fee of 75.00. If someone is going in behind

you a waiver of the fee is unlikely. We also have wired or wireless dsl,

which is free, and you are welcome to use the phone. Most local

calls are free anyway. The phone long distance rate is .7 per

minute. We ask you estimate you long distance use and leave the

cash on the counter.
