About Ted & Tammy Krez
We would love for you to make Sandy Birch Cottage your home away from home in the Northwoods. Sandy Birch Cottage is our second home on the Eagle River Chain of Lakes.. We love the ripple sand frontage, great swimming, the large lot, great privacy and towering pines. We enjoy being able to walk, bike or boat to all of our favorite Eagle River sites and destinations. But most of all, we love how visiting the Northwoods of Wisconsin gives us a great place to build memories with our family and friends.
Ted & Tammy Krez purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Ted & Tammy Krez chose Eagle River
This property is set up perfectly for two families to share or one family to spread out. The main level has an entry vestibule with tile floor, closet and coat hooks that is the perfect place for sandy shoes and wet towels or snowmobile gear. After the vestibule is the tile floor entry with closet and bench with coat hooks. The family room has a gas, fieldstone fireplace and huge picture window looking onto the lake. The kitchen has Corian counters, newer appliances, a pantry, window seat and fabulous views of the lake. The charming full bath is shared by the two large bedrooms on this level. Bedroom #1 has a king size bed, a twin size bed and two closets. Bedroom #2 has two full size beds and a large closet. The kitchen and family room open onto the huge deck with seating area, dining area and more fabulous views of the water. The lower level is a fully exposed walk out. This level has a family room with flat screen TV for watching movies, large sectional couch, gas fieldstone fireplace, game table, full laundry room, extra refrigerator for beverages and full bath. The two bedrooms on this level each have one full bed and three twin beds for a total of 12 separate beds in the home. The lower level opens onto a large screen porch facing the lake. The screen porch has a double chaise that is a favorite spot for kids to sleep (this is not counted in the sleeps total). There is a lower deck off the screen porch that has a hanging porch swing facing the lake. There is a gentle slope from the house to the lake where you'll find a large beach, fire pit, two hammocks in the trees ( best napping spot!), a large permanent pier, boat house and ripple sand swimming frontage. The gradual slope into the lake with hard sand bottom accommodates little ones who want to walk into the water and those that would rather take a running start down the classic wood dock and jump into the lake.

Our New Favorite Place!!
What an amazing place!!! I’m so happy we decided to stay at Birch Sands Cottage! It was the perfect place for our group - close to town, very clean, dog friendly, lots of seating, amazing views! We’re already talking about coming back up next year!
Charming, relaxing, beautifully decorated, great location, great beds, can’t wait to return!!!
Location was easy to find & close to everything we needed—shopping, dining out, grocery stores, golf, kids activities, and very peaceful. Everyone was impressed & can’t wait to return. Perfect place to de-stress!!! Our group didn’t want to leave and decided we are making this a semi-annual retreat!! We are fussy people and found home clean & well cared for. This is a wonderful place for families or a ladies retreat, a couples get away, or whatever! We all really enjoyed ourselves.
Great location on the Eagle River Chain
Exactly as advertised and we had an excellent stay. The house is close to the boat landing which was very convenient. We will definitely consider this cabin again!
Great setting and location on the Eagle River Chain
Plenty of room for 10 of us with kids and grand kids. Nicely decorated along with everything we needed for a fun up north experience. The beach area was sandy and nice. Kayaks, paddle boards, and other beach toys were available for use. Kids caught fish off the pier and fun was had by all.
Thank you so much for the nice review. I am glad that you enjoyed your trip. I appreciate the communication and you were a great guest to have. Hopefully you will visit Birch Sands Cottage again!
Great location on the chain of lakes.
The house is nicely decorated.We arrived a hour and a half early to drop off somethings in the garage. The cleaning crew still had not arrived to clean yet! They were only there 1 hour to clean! The house is just filthy! I call Ted to tell him how dirty it is,he has them come back to clean again. They did not do much of anything,the guy spent most of the time argueing with my sister - in -law over how he did scrub the floors! We ended up going to town and buying cleaning supplies to clean the cabin ourselves! I didn't want to let my one year old granddaughter go play on the floor! This place is disgusting, cobwebs in every room,stove so dirty,floors were gross. Our sheets had grass in them! They never vacuumed the carpets, Cheerios and sand under the table in basement carpets.Sand on bathroom floors. Spiders and webs inside and on the deck,screened in porch on lower level full of mold on the floor and so dirty,we didn't even sit out there! No chairs on the deck were clean,spiders and dirt ! Nice property but filthy! 🙄�
We are so sorry for the condition it was in for you guys. We tried to make it right for you by sending them back. I am sorry that it did not help you feel that the home was in a more suitable condition. We are working to get this addressed and not have issues going forward.
The amount of trees in the northwoods can make it difficult to control the cob webs. We have since pressure washed and asked our landscaping to double check the exterior. I wish I would have know the outside was not suitable for you as well. We would have sent someone over. I hope beyond this you had a great family trip in Eagle River. It has been such a wonderful summer up north.
Beautiful location and home. Lake was wonderful.
We were very disappointed in the cleanliness of the house. Spent several hours cleaning the kitchen and refrigerator before setting our food in it. The deck is a great size and wonderful to sit on, but we cleaned the mold off of the railing, so you wouldn't have to look at it! Whoever is doing the cleaning at the house is not doing a very good job!! The lights along the sidewalk on the way down to the dock never worked and are dangerous at night. We had a outstanding week of weather and enjoyed our stay. The place just needs a good cleaning!
