About Tom Sodemann

Owners have four grown children and will make 'The Beach House' their northern retirement home when they retire. They presently live in Genesse, Wisconsin. We receive so many letters from guests thanking us for all the family memories created at The Beach House. Get your family together now. Don't wait !

Tom Sodemann purchased this house in 2004

Why Tom Sodemann chose Two Rivers

The location is extremely unique. The property borders a beautiful state park/forest (Point Beach State Park)which has miles of hiking trails, bike trails, a centry old light house, and miles of beautiful sandy beach. The city of Two Rivers is one of those quaint friendly towns with lots of history related to the lake. Charter fishing is one of the best on the great lakes.

Our property also is only 11 steps higher than the beach so not many steps to climb.

What makes this house unique

Dense woods that brings many types of wildlife. Deer, Red Fox, Bald Eagles to name a few. The home is very large with 5 seperate bedrooms, a very large great room, large rec room with lots of games. Also has a number of private areas to just read or study. Even with 18 people, you never seem like the house is full.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just spent 2 days at the Beach House and Biked the Rawling trail and Mariner's trail (They connect to each other). They are absolutely wonderful trails! The Rawling trail runs through dense forest for 5 miles and the Mariner's trail runs right next to the lake for another 7 miles. To get to the trails from the Beach House, you simply ride right from our driveway over to "O" (Designated Wisconsin "Rustic Road") 35 MPH with very little traffic 1.3 miles to the Point Beach Forest entrance road and you are there! September and October are Absolutely Beautiful! The forest colors will be starting to turn and you can take them all in on the miles and miles of hiking and biking trails right from our doorstep! Get a group of couples together for a midweek or weekend getaway for some biking/hiking and relaxation. Family reunions are our specialty so don't forget about Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years! Get the whole extended family together for sharing those special moments. 3 fireplaces plus our outdoor firepit will provide some special moments as well. Our decorating theme is "Nautical" and we have collected many great pieces to create this theme for our special guests. The game room is a very special place and is hard to leave even when it's great weather out side. We have billiards, darts, and foosball.

Approximate room sizes: Bedrm #1 17.5x11.5 Queen, Bedrm #2 12.5x11.5 Queen, Bedrm #3 12.5x11.5 Queen, Bedrm #4 12x10.5 Queen, Bedrm #5 12.5x13.5 Queen, Great room 33x19.5, Rec Room 33x19.5, Hearth Room 18x15

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house had plenty of space, lots of sleeping choices for all the kiddos. Owner was responsive to any issues or concerns. Being right on the lake was wonderful, as was the beach! We enjoyed the gameroom downstairs as well on the rainy days. Would definitely recommend as a getaway for any large group or family trip!

Owner's Response: I always enjoy reading how The Beach House has brought families together to just enjoy family. We don't seem to be able to find those opportunities as much as we used too.

Better than we had hoped!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Beach House for our small wedding on Sept. 23, 2017. Tom, the homeowner, was incredibly accommodating and responsive from the moment we contacted him more than a year in advance of our date. The house and grounds provided plenty of space for our 40 wedding guests, plus the five bedrooms allowed us to spend more time with family prior to the event... and it also meant that we had our event set-up crew right on site :) We are so grateful to Tom for his help in making our dream wedding a reality.

Gorgeous view and a large, well equipped house.

  • 4 of 5

The beach house was a beautiful place for our family reunion. Tom was very easy to work with, very responsive to all of our questions, and he resolved issues quickly. The only downside to the place was the odor that came from the septic system in the front yard. We didn't spend much time there because the lake is on the other side of the house, but it was a bit of an issue at times coming and going. It would not stop us from renting the house again, because the rest of it was wonderful!!!

Wonderful deck. Fine beach area. Excellent outdoor fire pit.

Sewerage smell bothersome.

Owner's Response: Septic System Inspector was called to investigate the smell mentioned by our guest. It turned out to be a neighbor who's system was overdue to be pumped and have their filters cleaned. With the breeze, the odor wafted over to our property. Nothing else I could do about it.

WOW - Lake Michigan, Point Beach State Forest - LADIES weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual Ladies weekend at the Beach home. It is well organized, lots of room for guests, multiple rooms for playing games, bonfire by the lake, walks on the beach, trip up to Sturgeon Bay for the Door County Maritime museum. Beach home is directly next to Point Beach State Forest. Also you wake up to beautiful sunrises over lake Michigan!

A wonderful cousins convergence!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 14 adult cousins (singles & couples) and 2 aunts. This house in Two Rivers turned out to be perfect for us. The most impressive thing about this house is that it sits right on Lake Michigan! There is a deck that overlooks the water and a never ending view! We enjoyed watching the white pelicans from the decks of the house or even sitting inside the house. The house is plenty big to accommodate large groups and we were all able to sit and dine together. We found that the home was well stocked with towels and linens and we were pleased to find a pillow pantry! There were plenty of restaurants, wineries and things to do within a short drive. And if you decide to take a longer drive you can be at the northern tip of Door County in about 2 hours. The host, Tom, was always quick to respond to any questions. I highly recommend this home and hope to return again some day.

Owner's Response: The Beach House Is a "Special Place". We strive to make the experience as memorable as possible but I have to admit we have had a lot of help from Mother Nature with providing an almost perfect setting for our guests. Testimonials like this one is why we keep trying to improve the house and it's amenities. This year we have installed wood flooring in all the bedrooms, added additional ceiling fans, a new ping pong table for the rec room and a nice brand new gas grill replacing the charcoal Weber.
