Overview

About the property

Sleeps 12/Open Concept Home w/ Super Convenient Layout Great for Get Togethers!

This Beautifully Remodeled & Updated fully furnished log home is spacious and comfortable. Open Concept KT/DR/LR w/patio doors to huge wrap around deck. There are several access points to deck, yard and kitchen so it makes entertaining a breeze.

Great for Family Vacations!!! Being by the lake produces a feeling of relaxation and you can see it and hear it and feel it pretty easily in this easy going place called Two Rivers, and especially right here at the Smiling Bear Cabin.

There is Plenty of Room for kids (and kids at heart) to run and play. The yard is about 3/10ths acre w/Swings, Volleyball, Croquet, Badminton, & Sidewalk Chalk! We have a Fire-Pit and a Wood Shed which usually has kindling and at least some wood scraps. Sometimes we have actual logs but no guarantees. I try to keep matches & newspaper for starting fires in the house. Paper got too damp in woodshed. If there are no logs present and you would like to purchase some, I believe you can get it at Kwik Trip in TR or at a few roadside places within a few miles along County Road O heading toward Point Beach State Forest.

We have a gas grill and we provide the propane.

There is a Main Floor Bedroom w/King Size Bed. There are 3 more Bedrooms Upstairs. 2 of the upper Bedrooms have 1 Queen Size Bed per room. The 3rd has 2 Double Beds.

Fully equipped KT includes Gas Stove/Refrigerator w/Water & Ice Dispenser/Dishwasher/Microwave/Wine Cooler/Coffeemaker/Crockpots,/blender/beaters/pots & pans/utensils/glassware/bakeware et al. We have some specialties like a melon baller, garlic press, lemon zester, et al, to add pizazz to your cooking experience.

Main Floor Laundry Room for guest use. There is a full bath on both levels. Main Floor Bath has a Shower Stall. Upstairs Bath has a Shower over Tub.

Beach & Bath Towels as well as bed linens & kitchen towels are provided. We provide paper napkins, paper towel, toilet paper, and kleenex. We provide bar soap and pump soap. Shampoo & Conditioner are usually there.

We try to always have at least Salt/Pepper/Catsup/Mustard/Sugar/Coffee/Tea/Vanilla/Spices/Cooking Oil/Wax Paper/Cling Wrap/Foil/Ziplock Bags. More staples to come in future.

Zoned Residential. Some restrictions apply.

We are in love with this place. Tons of room for 12 people. Close to the water and salmon fishing, perfect fire pit. We love the large deck and open kitchen. This place has lots of amenities we will definitely be coming back.

Comfortable vacation home overlooking Lake Michigan

  • 4 of 5

Our family group of 10 enjoyed four nights at Smiling Bear cabin in Two Rivers. The home was nice and clean and all set up for our stay. The bedrooms were comfortable and we had plenty of sleeping space for our group. The location is perfect for enjoying the area. We had a day at Neshota Beach, visited the nearby alpaca farm, and rented bikes at Point Beach State forest to enjoy the biking trail. We can recommend this vacation home to families seeking a quiet place to relax and enjoy the activities in Two Rivers or Manitowoc .

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property. Everything you need is here. The men love to fish on lake Michigan and the ladies and children love Neshotah Beach. The yard is hugh great for sitting around the campfire in the evening, and water balloon fights during the day. The inside of the house is beautiful and very comfortable. Will be booking again.
