About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4)

The Cottage at Blue Heron Haven is aptly named after the Great Blue Heron that return and nest each year on this beautifully wooded cottage property. Located on 14 acres of private land, this two bedroom upper country cottage offers an abundance of opportunities for relaxation and recreation.

Located just outside of the Two Rivers city limits, the cottage offers an exquisite view overlooking a small private wildlife pond and a wooded sanctuary for sand hill crane, great blue heron, deer, wild turkey, and other natural wildlife. The cottage has a large open great room (kitchen, dining and family room) with a wall of windows and patio doors leading to an upper deck overlooking the pond and woodlands. Relax on the deck's covered porch swing and enjoy reading a book or bird-watching while you enjoy a cup of coffee.

The cottage great room offers an electric fire place, 47' smart 3-D TV, leather swivel rocker/recliners and a leather euro-lounger couch that folds down into a double bed. The kitchen area includes all new modern kitchen appliances, cookware, dishes, coffee-maker, and a large kitchen island for preparing and eating your home-cooked meals. A dining table and 6 chairs is also available for more intimate and formal dining in the upper cottage. For at-home entertainment on a rainy day, read one of our in-home library books, enjoy using wireless Internet, a 47' 3-D Smart TV for Netflix or Hulu plus local antenna channels, and a 3-D Blue Ray DVD player with complimentary movies from our DVD movie library (50 DVD's from which to choose). For your additional at-home enjoyment, we also include puzzles, cards and board games. The sun room/porch includes a wall of windows with a cafe table and chairs for breakfast dining while watching the birds and other natural wildlife.

The cottage has two bedrooms off of the great room, one with a Queen-size bed plus a second bedroom with a full-size bed. Both bedrooms boast of new beds, and bedding to provide you with a quiet, comfortable night of sleep. The Master bedroom has an additional 47" SMART TV. A full bathroom with a bathtub/shower unit is located across the hall from the bedrooms. There is an additional half bath attached to the larger bedroom. A roll away bed is also available. The upper cottage will comfortably accommodate 4 guests. Four guests is the maximum occupancy for this cottage property. Children, age 5 and older are welcome.

For those who have a working vacation planned, enjoy our home office work area complete with wireless Internet, basic office supplies, and a comfortable chair and built-in desk with windows that look out at the flowers, birds and wildlife.

Additional amenities include central air, plenty of parking space, a swingset and tree swing under the apple trees, and an outdoor picnic and gas grill.. (Children ages 5 and older are welcome.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I grew up in Two Rivers and my husband, Chris grew up in Manitowoc. I am an educator who spent most of my teaching career at the University. Chris is a college administrator. We have 4 young adult children. We enjoy camping, reading, movies, cycling, and other outdoor activities.

Why the Owner Chose Two Rivers, WI, USA:
This land has been in my family since 1946 when my grandfather purchased the original farmland upon which this cottage is located. My parents purchased the land from my grandfather in 1977 and in 1985, they built this cottage home. In 2014, we purchased the property. We share this beautiful location and cottage with those who also appreciate the wooded location and all that Two Rivers and Manitowoc County has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage sits on a beautifully wooded property that is outside of the Two Rivers city limits, yet it is less than 2 miles into town. Enjoy this quiet, relaxing atmosphere that is also home to a family of Great Blue Heron that nest on this property each year.
