House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps
About Michael Brennan
I built this house in 2000 when I lived in Wisconsin and the home was with in a convenient driving distance. Since then we hvave move around a bit and now live in Williamsburg, Va. We use the house in the summer and let it out when we take vacations while here. Thus it really only available a few weeks a year.
Michael Brennan purchased this House in 2001

Best prepared rental we have ever had
I stayed in my own house..
There was some winter clean up to do and I had to cook my own meals. Would be nice if this stupid site would let one block out his own use. I am not relisting my house on this site as it generally is run as a profit center for the suits. 600.00 a year to list and 95.00 more got the guest to book. What a total ripoff.
Lovely place, lovely view
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
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!:)
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.
