About Pauline G. Rice-Goetz & George Goetz

This property was in the Osmar family for many years. Our mother was raised here and went to school in what used to be a one-room school house in Dollar Settlement. She moved away after her marriage but later acquired the property after her parents passed. She and my father eventually moved back to the Upper Peninsula she so loved. Their eight children have special memories here on the shores of Lake Superior. I am her son Ken. My sister Janet recently purchased the cabin next door from our cousin and use it for their vacations.

Pauline G. Rice-Goetz & George Goetz purchased this mobile home in 2011

Why Pauline G. Rice-Goetz & George Goetz chose Upper Peninsula

When Mom passed-on in 2011 I acquired the property as Dad moved to Lansing to be close to many of his children. We will still have family reunions here and enjoy Dad's favorite spot, the Gazebo by the lake. This was his little piece of Heaven that he built himself. He was so proud of his octagon shaped hideaway that was so perfect for all the grand kids and so cool in the summer with all the screens. He liked to listen to his music there, tons of CD's and tapes from Country Music to Gregorian Chants.

What makes this mobile home unique

I like the benefit of owning this family property and being able to bring Dad back once in awhile to all the memories and for family reunions each year. I also like the fact that I have someone I can trust to manage the rental aspect of it on VRBO. This is the third listing George and Pauline Goetz are managing. They have been doing this for the past six years with their own beachfront property and her sister's. Their expertise is appreciated. I hope my guests make many memories and write many positive reviews for me to publish as we continue to update this three bedroom mobile home placed here by my parents.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our time at the home. It has been a peaceful time in the woods. The beach and sunsets are spectacular. The cottage was comfortable and well furnished - especially the living room. The large couches and chair were great! We found everything we needed here to cook and do some laundry. Having the laundry detergent and dishwasher soap was a nice touch and saved us a trip to town. Thank you for your hospitality. Jim.

Thank you for having us as your first guests. We had a peaceful and relaxing stay and look forward to returning soon. Sandy

Awesome, relaxing family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had an absolute blast on our trip. The property is adjacent to other lake houses, but still felt private. The trailer is a little dated, but still nice. The kids loved the gazebo! It's a short walk to the beach, like 2 minutes. It's a beautiful, secluded beach. We loved hanging out down there. There's a fire pit down there that we enjoyed. There's also one up by the house. There was a charcoal grill to use as well. The house is stocked with anything you could need. There were lots of towels, blankets and bedding as well. The rental was as listed and the managers were really great to work with, very friendly. The grounds and house/gazebo were clean and maintained. Some of the windows opened kind of hard and it was really hot up there, so a window ac unit in the living/kitchen area would have been nice. There were window ac units in all 3 bedrooms. We enjoyed Taquemenon Falls, Pictured Rocks, Sault St Marie, they were all within a reasonable driving distance. We stopped at Dancing Crane coffee house a couple times, that was a nice place. Lots to do up there! If you're not looking for anything fancy, but want a nice, relaxing beach vacation, I highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice positive review! As a manager we appreciate any comments that focus on how we helped to make things better for someones vacation. Knowing that our cleaning staff is doing a great job is valuable to us and the owners. Statements that reflect that your needs were met and that everything was there that you could possibly need encourages others to book it. Also noting that there were so many attractions to see withing driving distance of one hour or less is always a plus. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of this gem on Lake Superior.

A Great Dissappointment

  • 1 of 5

Our vacation ended up being a Great Disappointment, so much so that we only stayed 16 hours. I had read in a previous review that mosquitos were a problem for other guests, I also read that the owners replied to the review and were aware of problems. I unfortunately assumed that some of the issues were corrected, the windows. Though I am aware that nothing can be done about nature and fully accept that mosquitos are outdoors. We had no idea how bad mosquitos would/could be. However, the fact that the mosquitos kept entering the rental was unacceptable. There were several issues with the rental. No central heat (this amazed and shocked us) no central fan to circulate the heat from the living room. However, thank goodness it was chilly out, because it was impossible to open windows NO SCREENS on many of the windows thus mosquitos continuously entered the home. We were greeted with a list of issues the housekeepers wanted the owners to be aware of. We killed the hundreds of mosquitos that followed us in, we made sure that all windows and doors were closed completely to turn in for the evening. After showering in the master bath, the water continued to leak loudly for the rest of the night. Every couple hours we were awoken by the sound of mosquitos in the room, we would get up kill many more only to be awoken again. We tried sealing the window edges and gaps with tissue, nothing helped. We were dinner and were trapped, tired and disappointed and disgusted. I went to cook breakfast to find 1 skillet had the tephlon coating scratched horribly, found an iron skillet which I found to be cracked through (because the butter I was melting flamed under the pan). We called the owners to let them know our frustrations and left a message that we would be leaving. We packed, did attempt to walk to the beautiful beach unfortunately only for a minute for the LARGE mosquitos were feasting on us! We left, called the owners hours later from a rest area to again let them know of our departure, apparently they weren't surprised, or just didn't care. Again, I realize the mosquitos outside can NOT be helped it is nature, but it is unacceptable to be unable to sleep indoors due to the mosquitos that are continually entering from somewhere. The rental needs new windows with screens, cooking utensils (pans), radio or television that have the weather and news available (the television _only_ plays DVD's) plumbing needs repaired, and seriously heat/air are an issue.

Owner's Response: In response to this negative review I would like to comment as the manager, not the owner. I live just 5 miles east of Osmar's Superior Family Retreat and experienced the same problems with the mosquitoes this June. We have tried everything to cut down on their infiltration into homes, spraying chemicals, using bug bombs, using repellent, swatting, etc. This is the time of year mosquitoes are just hatching and are vicious. Plus we had a very wet spring. The owner here makes changes every year to upgrade this older mobile home. The furniture and beds are very comfortable. The satelite TV service was discontinued by the owner due to continued use of pay for view that became an excessive cost. It can still be used for DVD's as stated. Many of the screens were replaced or repaired last year. However, the screens on the enclosed porch are very ill-fitting due to a frost heave. Thus, when the front door of the home is opened mosquitoes can get in. The owner is aware of the condition of the front porch and intends to rebuild it soon. It also has a sliding glass entry door on the porch that is difficult to slide and close. It needs to be replaced when the porch is rebuilt. Some work was done last year on the plumbing. I was not aware of the drip this year until now. No one has complained before about pots and pans. I will check on that and replace any that are bad. My son and I went to this rental to check on our new cleaning staff, but the guests had already arrived. The mosquitoes were so bad upon leaving our car that talking to the guest outside was impossible! We were not invited in, but tried to address any concerns they had due to the note being left by our cleaners and not having the window air conditioners in place in the bedrooms. Our maintenance man had just had surgery and could not immediately do it. The screens had been taken out by the owner when the air conditioners were put in last year. The air conditioners are taken out for the winter. It was too cool to open windows or use a/c in June, anyway. There is central electric heating controlled by a thermastat in the hall way. There is another source of heat in the living room, a propane free-standing furnace that is easy to operate with controls right on it and the flame is visible. They did not call me to ask how to get the electric furnace working. They only called and said they left early. They did not say why. I am sorry! The next quests had no complaints.

Great family fun!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Osmars. Plenty of space for our big family of 7. The beach was gorgeous and very private, our kids played for hours!!!! The kitchen was very well stocked with pots and pans and all sorts of baking items. The property managers were very helpful with any issues we may have had and are very friendly. Grocery and restaurants are a good 15 min drive from property so make sure you bring what you need. All in all a beautiful, peaceful retreat. There is another cottage right next door, like within 20 feet of the porch, but there was no one staying there during our stay so that was not a problem at all for us. Would definitely go back. Had a great time.

Excellent, but needs some upkeep.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location of this cottage. Secluded and right on the beach (which was beautifully sandy). It was within driving distance to the falls, plenty of hiking, kayaking, and exploring. The cottage itself was nice and roomy, clean, but in need of some minor repairs. It had a sort-of "run down" feel to it that wouldn't be there with a few touches: the slider door to the porch doesn't work, and the knob to the second bedroom needs replaced (I got locked inside it for a good while until someone helped to bust me out!). Also, we couldn't keep the windows open at night because the ripped screens allowed mosquitos inside, and a noticed a mushroom growing in the corner of the main bathroom.

All that said, however, it is a very nice place to stay -- I just know it could be better. If you're thinking about renting this property, I wouldn't let those things stop you, but just keep them in mind.

Great place if Mosquito's don't carry you away!

  • 3 of 5

The location was great, the beach was peaceful and serene. The accommodations were adequate and clean. On the less than positive side, things started out poorly being locked out upon arrival. A badly leaking quest shower wall along with mildew was also present. By far, the biggest disappointment and frustration were the mosquitoes!! Outside, they were bad. But inside, every evening, they found their way in, every night, every day. Even with the place closed up tight and fogging the whole exterior, they came inside - somewhere. Awoke every day with mosquito bites and many of the insects on the walls.We will be leaving with many memories, not all of them good!

Owner's Response: I am sorry to say we had the same mosquito problem at our home, as well as many of my neighbors. This was a wet and long time coming spring for MI, especially in the U.P. with ice still flowing on Lake Superior on June 5th! We cut the grass just before their arrival to cut down on the mosquito's. We kept windows and doors closed. We even loaned them the use of our fogger to spray around the outside of the house and Gazebo. Nothing seemed to work. I think older windows on the enclosed porch allowed the nasty little buggers access to the front door as it opened and closed when people went in and out. I will ask the owner if something can be done soon to replace or fix some of these ill-fitting windows. Now that we have more sunshine and warmer temps the mosquito's seem to have diminished somewhat. As far as it being locked when they arrived, that was an oversight by my cleaning staff who inadvertently locked the door when done cleaning. I live 5 miles from this location and the guests did have to drive to us. We immediately opened it for them. We also delivered some firewood to them the next day and loaned them our mosquito fogger. I don't know what else we could have done. The shower curtain in question is a liner and easily replaced and the little bit of mold on it happened over winter. We did not catch it. They did not let me know about it until this letter. The bathrooms are always cleaned thoroughly but are older. Some stains are very difficult to remove. We have even used straight bleach. I was not aware of any faucet or shower leaking. The owner this year installed something in the pipes (screens?) to prevent sand and dirt from backing up from the well into the lines during spring when he opens the place after it being winterized and closed for the season. He flushes out the lines. We appreciate complaints and comments and treat them as gifts because they help to identify a problem that we can hopefully resolve before the next group arrives. This is an older place that will continue to need something. You have kindly pointed out some things that need attention. Thank you.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent time at your vacation rental. The beach is fantastic! If you have trouble with stairs, this is not the place for you, but for all others beach access was easy. The kids (and Grandpa) loved sleeping in the gazebo. The kids and our dog loved the beach and the water was great. There are a few things that need updating in the house, but this is a new rental property and the managers seem to be very committed to bringing this rental to a great standard. The washer wasn't working, but Pauline was kind enough to do a load for us. And it seems the owner will be replacing the washer in the near future. The fridge is a bit old, but it works fine. You just have to make sure the doors are shut. The freezer dispenses ice, which was great as it was unseasonably warm during our stay. The kitchen is well appointed and had everything we needed to cook all our meals. The grill, not so much. Overall, I say give this place a chance. The beach is phenomenal and the house is very clean and comfortable. The managers seem committed to improving this rental and I think it will get better every week.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all comments as they are gifts that help us to make this rental a better place. We have repaired the gas grill and replaced the washing machine with a brand new one. Curtains have been updated in the living room and dining area, with more updates coming. There was a brand new toilet installed in the hall bathroom. The deck at the house was also improved. Spring of 2013 will see some plumbing updates. Carpeting in the master bath has been removed and new flooring will be installed. As with any home, repairs and updating are always a part of regular maintenance. We appreciate your encouragement and patience with this new listing of an older property that is in such a wonderful setting.

This property is in the Hiawatha National Forest and just off the Whitefish Bay National Forest Scenic Byway which is located along the south shore of Lake Superior in Michigan. This roadway (W. Lakeshore Drive) is a 'Highway to the Past' that draws attention to the unique history, culture, scenery and snowmobile trails.

Stories of lives and events have been passed down through oral traditions of the Native Americans and the writtten records of early travelers, missionaries, and traders.

For the native people this region was a home and gathering place made attractive by the concentration of white fish that made it a prime fishing site. The high bluffs of Iroquois Mountain made a great lookout over the bay and a place of worship. A place called Iroquois Pte. was the scene of a great battle between the 'Nodaway' Iroquois warriors and the Chippewa near where Point Iroquois Light Station is now.

The waters of the St. Mary's River carried many travelers to an unexplored wilderness and the area became a meeting place and destination for people seeking riches and trade.

For the white settlers it became a haven of rich timber resources. James Pendill's Sawmill just west of Point Iroquois was powered with the water of Pendill's Creek. Today it is the site of Pendill's Creek National Fish Hatchery where kids under age 15 fish free for a day in June.

The Peninsula Bark Company used the shoreline as a docking site where stacks of 'tan bark' were shipped to the Northwest Leather Company in the 'Soo'.

For the sailor, the Bay was a harbor of safety and a gateway to the inland sea of Lake Superior. The beacon of Point Iroquois Lighthouse was a guiding glow, or a light never to be reached. The many shipwrecks that have occurred throughout this region gave birth to the Whitefish Point Shipwreck Museum where you can see artifacts.

The Portals: Gros Cap Canada and Point Iroquois, marked the boundary between the treacherous waters of Lake Superior and relatively calm waters of the St. Mary's River.

These are just a few of the historic sites along the Byway that offer a glimpse into the past and show that this region was an historic travel route that is still followed today for pleasure. Along this route you will find waterfront campgrounds, shady picnic areas, trails, and miles of secluded beaches to walk, and vast expanses of clear water to swim and fish.

The Whitefish Bay area is known for its Native American history and pre-history which extend back for several thousand years. The Bay Mills Indian Community is located just a short drive east of Monocle Lake.

This tribe has the historic distinction of opening the first casino on a reservation, the Kings Club Casino, that is still open. As a result of its success they were able to extend employment to their people and others by opening the Bay Mills Resort and Casino two miles down the road, as well the Wild Bluff Golf Course, and the Bay Mart Store and Gas Station in Brimley.

At the Bay Mills Resort you can do fine dining at Sacy's Restaurant enjoying a wonderful crab legs buffet or eat a quick bite at the Back Bay Grill and Sport's Bar overlooking the Back Bay of Lake Superior.

Henry Schoolcraft was an early European traveler whose description and recorded information about the native cultures of the area inspired Longfellow's work 'Song of Hiawatha'. The area was and still is of great importance for fishing and as a shipping corridor. It is a location between two popular destinations (Soo Locks and Tahquamenon Falls).

When you visit the Wheels of History Museum in downtown Brimley exhibits show the early logging history of Bay Mills. It is run by the Bay Mills-Brimley Historical Research Society that has also partnered with the National Forest Service in renovation and interpretation at the Point Iroquois Lighthouse. This lighthouse is free and open to the public, but donations are appreciated. You can climb its tower, walk the grounds and boardwalk, see exhibits, and purchase books in its gift shop.

Stop at the Sault Ste Marie Chamber of Commerce on the I-75 Business Spur to get maps and all kinds of tourist information for one of the oldest cities in America.

Once you cross the famous Mackinac Bridge and enter the enchanted Upper Peninsula of Michigan you are immediately aware of fresh clean air, beautiful forests (full of pine, cedar, birch and maple trees), and wonderful clear water.

There are many things to do and places to see within one hour of our location, such as the famous Mackinac Island where no cars are allowed. Tourists and residents use horses and rented bicycles to see the island and old fort.

People living in the UP are called 'Yoopers'. The people who live below the bridge are called 'Trolls'. The last two lines of the Yooper Creation Story says it all, 'On da sixth day God created da bridge so da trolls would have a way to get to heaven. God saw it was good and on da 7th day he went to hunt'.
