    Winding River Cottages on the Menominee-the River House

    Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
    This beautiful property is home to two newly remodeled and renovated cottages and one house, all of which are directly on the Menominee River, about 5 minutes outside of Marinette. You will have access to your own private patio and fire-pit area. The River House is approximately 2,500 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, and a living/dining/kitchen area with a wood burning fireplace. The two bedrooms on the main floor each have a queen bed, while the third bedroom is upstairs and has a king-sized bed with a sitting area and a private bathroom. The beds are outfitted with 100% cotton sheets, blankets, and quilts. There is also a down comforter on each bed. Each bedroom has plenty of windows to see the beautiful surroundings. There are also two futons in a separate sitting area, which can be used as two full-sized bed. The bathrooms have tiled showers, toilets, and granite-topped vanities with sinks and mirrors. The towels are all 100% cotton. The kitchen has a full-size stainless oven, a full-size stainless refrigerator/freezer, a stainless dishwasher, a full-size stainless microwave oven, and a 4-burner gas cook top. The kitchen is fully stocked with matching dishes, utensils, glassware, pots and pans, and cooking utensils. There is a table that seats six and has a leaf that will eight people to gather together. There is a coffee maker and a toaster. There is a 55" flat-screened TV with internet access, a selection of puzzles, and some books to read while relaxing during your stay. The dining area has double glass doors that open onto your own private deck, right on the water. The walls of the house are a mixture between ship-lap and a light gray drywall color in the living area and ship-lap with white drywall in the bedrooms. The floors throughout look like a beautiful cottage plank, but are actually vinyl--so no need to worry if the kids come in with wet feet. Everything about this house is calming and relaxing. There is a 6-burner gas grill , as well as six kayaks with paddles to use at your leisure. There is parking for 3 to 4 vehicles. The house has approximately 2,500 square feet, in which there are two bedrooms with queen mattresses, one bedroom with a king mattress and sitting area, and a game area that has two full-size futons. The bedrooms with the queen beds have glass doors that open up to the river, while the bedroom with the king bed is surrounded by windows overlooking the river. There are two full-sized bathrooms; one is upstairs in the master bedroom, while the other is on the main level. The living area has leather furniture, a dining table that seats 6, a full kitchen with stainless appliances, and a natural fireplace.

      Winding River Cottages

      We stayed here for two nights. Property was very clean, spacious, and all necessities were provided. The fire pit is right next to the river and is nice to relax at. The neighbors were very friendly. Tricia gave us suggestions for restaurants and other things in the area. We were in town for a funeral and had an unfortunate event happen with the flowers ordered for the service. Tricia made multiple offers to try to help find a solution and was more helpful than the flower company! Definitely recommend staying here. Great host and great house.
