Welcome to this luxury home located in beautiful Saint Germain! With its gorgeous, cathedral-style vaulted ceilings of pine wood, its floor-to-ceiling windows looking out past the expansive front deck to Big St Germain Lake, and its many on-site amenities that include water equipment and a firepit, this dog-friendly, lakefront home is a dream-come-true! Big St Germain Lake is a popular recreation site and is widely known for its terrific fishing, so don't forget to bring your poles and swim trunks, because your vacation is about to be filled with sun, sand, and lots of good times. Standing on a double, private lot with 268 feet of sand frontage positioned on the south shore of the lake, this home boasts beautiful bedrooms on each of its three levels. The home's great room enjoys an open concept dressed with lots of comfortable furniture, attractive wall art and decor, and soft, carpeted floors, all crowned by a handsome stacked-stone wood-burning fireplace. The full kitchen is equipped with a center prep island with barstool seating for five, stainless steel appliances, and all the cookware you need to make your next culinary adventure a joy to prepare. You can serve up to 12 dinner guests at the round dining table or take your meals outside to the furnished wraparound deck to enjoy the amazing lake views while you eat.

Off the great room, you'll find two bedrooms, each with queen-size beds, plus a full bath. Upstairs, the loft enjoys spectacular lake views and the main bedroom featuring a queen bed and a TV for some late-night entertainment, plus a full bath right next door. The lowest level features a large entertainment area with patio access, comfy furniture, a mounted flatscreen TV, and the fourth bedroom boasting two twin bunks and a queen bed, plus patio access. The lower level includes a full bath, a washer and dryer, and lots of books and board games to explore during your stay. After a full day of paddleboarding or fishing, come home to stream your favorite Youtube, HBO, and Netflix movies and shows on any TV while munching on hot, buttered popcorn or catch up on a favorite novel out on the deck. You'll love throwing a little char on today's fresh catch with the gas grill then heading down to the firepit to toast marshmallows with the kids. And there's nothing like the beautiful fall colors you'll find, come Autumn. Here for the winter? The snowmobiling is practically famous here!

Nice and clean, great place on Lake St Germain
Lisa M. Aug 2022
We loved the location,the sandy beach, the view, the layout, and all the amenities that came with Sandy Cove
Chelsea E. Jul 2022
Very nice and quiet area. Place was very nice. Wish the kitchen counter space was a little bigger to put more food and appliances on. Deck was very nice with plenty of room. Nice area to fish and had a paddle boat that kids loved. One downfall that wasn’t pleasant was the smell of the bathroom water: smelt like sewage which didn’t make you feel clean at all or want to get washed up
Manager response:
Hi, Chelsea! We're glad you stayed with us and will be sure to check out the unpleasant smell you encountered. Thank you!

Quiet, relaxing getaway with the family and the dogs. Very nice house. Beautiful view.

Sandy Cove is aptly named as most of our time spent for the week we stayed was at the beach watching our grandchildren play in the water. The home is located in a quiet and extremely private bay on beautiful Big St. Germain. The home is spacious and updated with a yard for lawn games next to the firepit that we enjoyed every night. The large deck with views of the lake and plenty of room for outdoor dining and relaxing. The weather was perfect all week long so we really spent most of the time at the beach or on the water. We rented a pontoon boat from Paul's Rental All in St. Germain, which was so easy to do. We especially loved the large round table overlooking the water. We would highly recommend this home for a multiple family vacation!

Sandy Cove was perfect for our family of 12! Kitchen was very well stocked. The place was very clean and met all our expectations. Swimming was perfect for the younger grandchildren. Very convenient to any where in the St. Germain-Minocqua area. Loved the fact that we didn't have to go down or climb back up any stairs to the water. Would definitely recommend!
Ruth R. Jul 2021
Enjoyed the spacious home for 7 of us..and 2 dogs..being able to bring our dogs was nice. We rented paddle boards so accessible paddle boards would be an added plus for the price we paid. Also a later check out time would've allowed us to have another day to swim..
Manuel M. Jun 2021
Great location, amenities and near everything you could want to do in St Germaine. Would recommend to anyone
Sam W. Apr 2021
A very well appointed lake home with great access to everything you could desire in the Northwoods. Kitchen was definitely better than most vacation rentals and allowed us to spend more time eating together in the home than we expected. Beds and bedrooms were comfortable. Everything worked and was available as expected. Would definitely recommend as a good value for the size and location.

I absolutely loved everything about this house!! From the bottom floor to the top floor. The kitchen was really nice and where I spent alotta time cooking for my family. Everything you could need was there. They lacked in spices altho they had a few, the more used ones weren't there but not like we would use them since covid, we bought our own. The living area was nice and the scenery was absolutely gorgeous!! The deck was beautiful, unfortunately it rained the whole time we were there so we were unable to enjoy the outdoors. But we had a pleasant stress free and relaxing time!! Would most definitely rent this Lake house again. Made everyone of my friends want to know where this place was thanks to my snapchat pics!! Lol can't wait to book this place again!! Next time it would have to be in the summer months. The surrounding towns were nice also. We did lots of shopping!! Also have to check out Wolf Pack Cafe!! It was another highlight other then the lake house.

Would stay again !
Kateri K. Feb 2021
Nice place! Clean and comfortable. Great location, right off trails. A little chilly but given cold temps, as expected. The fireplace came in handy. Plenty of sleeping for guests, good amenities. Would like to come back in summer!

The cabin was great for our week stay. The kitchen was fully stocked, which was nice since we ate at the cabin a lot. Bathroom were super clean! Beds were comfortable as well. Plenty of space for everyone. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Kristy S. Jul 2020
We loved our stay here! House met all expectations. Very clean and beautiful setting. Lots of fun had on the lake. The basement was chilly for the kids in the bunk room, but there were extra blankets in closets and kids certainly did not mind snuggling in the beds after a hard day playing on by the lake. Hope we can come again.
Robert B. Jul 2020
It was wonderful. Had everything we needed and more.
Kathie V. Jul 2020
Sandy Cove is truly everything you could ever ask for in a vacation rental. We are a large family and usually rentals are not set up or stocked for our needs. Sandy Cover has everything we could ever need - a griddle, large bedrooms and bathrooms a huge a fridge, sippy cups for the little kids, travel mugs for adults, even blenders for chocolate shakes!! They also had a huge deck box full of toys and noodles for the beach and plenty of board games inside. The home is very private and was clean and well maintained. The beachfront has a nice sandy area for little ones and is shallow enough for kids to play safely. We could not have asked for a better vacation home - we will defintely be back next year!!!

Wonderful place to stay, great access to the lake for snowmobiles for ice fishing.
Julie H. Nov 2019
Clean, comfortable, homey, roomy. Lovely view of the lake and Northwoods through large windows, even in the winter. Well equipped kitchen, everything we needed to make Thanksgiving dinner. Great family time.

This property looked just as it is pictured, clean and new. The location is great. Nice and quiet, beautiful view of the lake from the house and the spacious deck. There is a grocery store very close by, lots of restaurants and things for kids to do.

Sandy Cove is a beautiful, spacious home. the website described it perfectly. It provided everything we needed. It was spotless and well maintained. The location was just right, just minutes from downtown Saint Germain and our favorite desination - Cathy`s Ice Cream!

We had a great time staying at this beautiful house on Big Saint Germain Lake. The weather wasn`t cooperative but we enjpyed the amenities of the house suvh as the fireplace, great smart TV and cooking items. It`s great to have an available crock pot in the house. The beds were comfortable and the memory pillos were an added bonus. We utilized the dock with our fishing boats. The dock was in great shape! My only suggestion wouldbe to add an outlet for charging boats at the little shed on the way to the dock. It has a light so adding an outdoor electrical outlet would be a big bonus for fishermen wanting to charge their boats overight. We had to have 250 feet of cord to reach an outlet at the house.

Very nice and only complaint was tv was hard to use and grounds were very swamp like.
