Autumn color and a distinctly Northwoods flavor await you in The Marq. 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, along with a large screen porch with extra eating area are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. A field stone fireplace accents the knotty pine interiors and the cathedral ceiling makes it feel quite spacious. Direct TV with HBO and free WIFI are included. Located on the north shore 785-acre Squaw Lake, enjoy the use of over 500 ft. of sugar sand frontage and shallow, sandy swimming area.
This is far more than a space. This is an experience. Wait until you experience the view from the screened-porch! The Marq is a cedar-sided cabin, spacious and cozy, and carpeted throughout. Vintage quilts and artistic touches are featured with knotty-pine interiors, rich in color and style. Large, flat screen HDTV in living room and another in the master en suite bedroom. The beautiful field stone fireplace stretches up the cathedral ceiling and there's a dining table with six chairs indoors and another on the rustic screen porch with filtered lake views.
You will have the entire cabin to yourself, and access to all of the many facilities and amenities at Sandy Point Resort. You will have a dedicated, uncovered parking space that will accommodate up to four cars (and boat trailers if necessary) and a key to your cabin. You will not be disturbed by the management nor will potential future guests be allowed to tour your cabin while you are occupying it. The facilities on property include a recreation house with pool table, ping-pong, pinball, darts, air hockey, an elliptical machine, piano, and big screen TV. You will also have unlimited use of a 27-hole championship disc golf course. Golf discs will be provided at no charge if you do not have your own. The lakefront has two large, 90-foot T-docks. There is no charge to moor your boat and Squaw Lake has a FREE public boat access. Use of playground, kayaks, canoe, paddleboards, peddleboats and a rowboat is also included. We have the BEST beach in the Northwoods.
We will personally greet and register you at check-in time (any time after 4pm during the summer season, after 2pm in the shoulder seasons) and are available to answer questions or assist you during your stay during regular office hours.

My husband, Mike, and I have owned and operated Sandy Point Resort for 25 years. We are fully licensed and insured Wisconsin innkeepers and submit to health inspections, fire marshal inspections and well water testing each year. We are properly zoned for short-term rentals and we love sharing our properties with guests from all over the United States. We do our best to make everyone who comes to our beautiful spot in the Northwoods feel welcome.
I am a jewelry designer and also make wool hats and scarves. I am also the author of six published books, including the popular memoir, "I'm Living Your Dream Life: The Story of a Northwoods Resort Owner." Mike is an Ambassador for Team Innova, and a well-known retailer of all things related to disc golf. He has a thriving Internet business selling golf discs and bags. Married in 1989, we created the world's first disc golf resort and spend our days playing and teaching this sport/activity. We have two children, Willow (22), and Camille (20). Willow has a B.S. in kinesiology and history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Camille is in the School of Letters, Arts and Sciences at the University of Arizona-Tucson.
