Your Hosts at Sandy Point Resort

Mike and Michele Cozzens, along with their daughters, Willow, 22, and Camille, 20, are your hosts at Sandy Point Resort and Disc Golf Ranch.

Both originally from the Midwest, Mike and Michele moved to the Northwoods from Northern California in 1993 and have since devoted their lives to upgrading every aspect of the resort.

A former stock broker and a journalist, they were married in 1989, and decided to buy a resort to live where the air is clean and their children would experience a fun-filled and special childhood. Together they've created an outstanding, family-owned and operated facility and what the M-A-V-W Chamber of Commerce calls "one of the finest family-owned and operated resorts in the Northwoods."

Willow received her B.S. in kinesiology and history from UW-Madison in May, 2017 and currently lives in Madison and works as a director for the Fund for Public Interest. Camille attends the University of Arizona in Tucson in the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and is now in her third year.

In addition to designing and building two log homes, Stickeen and Aerie, in 1994, in 1995 the Cozzens seized the opportunity to purchase Lakeview Lodge just after Willow was born. Mike designed The Marq and then worked on the crew, finishing it in 1998. In 2001, they replaced the Recreation Cabin, as well as two of the last three original cabins, Hilltop and The Big House, with spectacular cabins.

Michele is responsible for the decorating and has given each cabin an individual Northwoods/Southwest flavor. She has an extensive quilt collection and has pieced together each room like a work of art.

Together, and with input from the wonderful Wisconsin Disc Golf Community, they are the proud creators of their own 27-hole disc golf course. Play this unique and beautiful course, and it won't take long to understand why so many have dubbed Sandy Point "disc golf heaven!"

Mike and Michele are both professional members of the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA), and have run numerous tournaments and participated in various Frisbee events throughout the country. They make golf discs available to all guests and are happy to give lessons and demonstrations whenever they can. Don't be afraid to ask, they're happy to share their vast knowledge of the sport.

Now in their 25th year of operation, they are constantly upgrading and improving the resort, adding a public restroom and laundry facility and they hope to built a lodge in the near future. "We LOVE Sandy Point and are delighted to share this little piece of paradise with you. Please come see us and become a part of our Sandy Point family! Call today to reserve your cabin.
