July and August Updates

It’s HERE!!  Vacation time at the cottages.  The beach is looking great!  The Game Room has a new look.  Cottages #3, #4, and #5 have had some new floors installed.  Cottage #7 has a new look, too.  Some little changes were done here and there to update and change things up a bit.

For those of you coming up to Escanaba through Wisconsin, know that there has been construction on M-35, especially at the bridge crossing the Cedar River.  Notice the new restaurant in Cedar River!  And, for those fans of Schloegel’s in Menominee who were heartbroken at its closing last year, it has re-opened again, under new ownership so it is updated as well, but at least it is open once again.

For those of you coming from Lower Michigan, the bridge over the Escanaba River is still under construction, but it is not too bad going west towards Escanaba.

We can’t wait to see our returning friends and look forward to opportunities to meet new ones.

Have you made your reservation yet?

May and June 2018

The weather is slowly warming up and the ice is out of the bay.  Spring can be a little slow to arrive in the Escanaba area, and this year with the 10-12” of snow over 2 days mid-April, it has really taken its time arriving. But the snow fence is down from the beach and the projects have begun. We are happy to be putting in some new floors this spring in cottages #3, #4, and #5. Soon, the roof of the garage / game room will come off and new one put on, hopefully to be completed by Memorial Day Weekend.  Keith and I will be giving the Game Room a bit of a “face lift,” too. Our  ping pong players will happy to see a new ping pong table. The pool table will be replaced by a sitting area, game/refreshment table, and a flat-screen TV. We realized last season that it is time to replace the toilets in our three motel rooms by this summer and upgrade the TV’s, too, to flat screen TV’s.

We are thrilled so many of our guests from past years are returning.
We do still have openings, so check out the calendar page and see if you can find a time to visit us this year.  We would love to host you on the beach.
See you on the beach!!

Here’s the Latest From Sandy Shores Cottages 

March and April 2018
Well, it’s not boating or swimming weather yet.  Many of the Escanaba winter scenes are still beautiful though, especially at sunrise.  Most of us are ready to transition from the white and gray to the green and blues of spring.  Soon.

In January and February and early March we heard from returning previous guests and deposits were made for their 2018 cottage reservations.  We still have openings so be sure to check our rental calendar tab to see what is available and when.  New reservations are being taken now and deposits accepted.  If you have questions about the resort, please email or call Keith and Cheryl. 

This spring’s projects are in planning stages.  We have new floors that will be going in to three of our cottages – Cottage #3, Cottage #4, and Cottage #5.  We also are looking into some updating in our Game Room, as well as installing a new roof on the Game Room / Garage.

Here’s the Latest at Sandy Shores Cottages

January and February 2018
Brrrrrr it’s pretty cold outside. January and February are the months that our guests from 2017 (and from earlier years) have the opportunity to reserve their cottages for the same week as last year. Folks can also inquire about changing cottages and / or weeks for 2018. Deposits from previous guests are due in early March. At that point, we know for sure what will be available and will already be reserved.

New reservations are also possible during January and February. If new guests are interested in a cottage and a week that were not rented last year, we can talk about penciling in a new reservation. If it is absolutely clear that I have that opening, a deposit will be accepted. If not, in March when we know what is reserved for sure or not, new guests can discuss making their deposit to secure their reservation.
