Overview

Oostburg House Rental Photos and Description

Perfect place for summer family reunions, weddings, quiet escapes.

Barbadon is a year round home which we made available for rentals in 2014.

Built in 1930 Barbadon was originally a 4 bedroom cottage. The cottage was remodeled into a year round home in the 80’s. There is a first floor Master Bedroom set up with a queen bed and a full bath. Upstairs there is a bedroom with two Twin Beds and loft overlooking the Great Room. All rooms have great views of Lake Michigan. The first floor Sunroom is set up with a twin bed and desk area with a bank of windows overlooking the Beach and Lake. Off the front of the house there is a large deck which has stairs leading down to the beach.

During the Winter months you can snow shoe or cross country ski directly North and South along the lakefront, or venture off down tree lined Cardinal Lane and further if you like. If you prefer, sit inside next to the fire and just relax. We provide board games, cards, DVD and VCR are included with the TV. WiFi is also provided.

About Nicola Davis

This property has been in our family for 80 years. Built by our grandfather(Mac) in 1930 as a summer cottage. Remodeled and winterized in the late 70's for our parents.

Nicola Davis purchased this house in 1930

Why Nicola Davis chose Oostburg

Gramma(Bessie) camped on this very beach with 4 other girl friends from Milwaukee in the 1920's including Jane Foster(Foster Rd). Grampa Mac helped Jane put the road in and develop the lakefront. Gampa bought the best for himself. Combined with our other 2 summer cottages the property works great for family reunions or private Beach Weddings Mid May thru Mid October.

What makes this house unique

Oostburg is a darling town, it has the best Hardware Store and Bakery you will ever find. An easy drive from Chicago and without the crowds of Door County. Our beaches are private, the water clear with a sand bottom.

There are plenty of other local attractions if you decide to venture from the Beach however most people that come to Bessie's Beach tend to just say put and relax.

FANTASTIC !!!!

  • 5 of 5
The booking experience was a breeze. Nicola was immediately responsive to the initial inquiry and the transaction couldn't have been easier.

The location is a stones throw from I 43 and very easy to find.

My first impression was WOW !!!! The first impression was not deceiving....it is an outstanding property !!!! The ambiance is of a modernized summer home of the 1930's, but I have never stayed in such a finely constructed and appointed lake home.

The house was lacking nothing. Bath and a half, every kitchen utensil ever needed, lots of warm water for the whirlpool bath, killer deck, spotlessly clean , crisp clean sheets,very comfortable bed, a ton of pillows and towels, central air ( didn't need it), WIFI , TV, ( had to check the weather), grill, fire pit, and privacy....

In spite of all that, the real attraction is the Million dollar view !!!! There are large picture windows facing Lake Michigan. Fantastic !!!

The pictures don't really do justice to how close the house is to the water . Neither do they really bring out the character of the house.

The beach was well kept, clean, and with comfortable chairs and an umbrella. The other property renters were not close enough to be an intrusion.

Only caveat is the cell phone coverage is spotty ...sometimes 4G , sometimes, no service. But what the heck , I didn't care...I was on vacation !! Text message worked. If you cant live without your cell you can hook up to the WIFI and that problem was solved. Also, they have a land line, so no obstacle to must make phone calls.

In summary Barbadon was a 5 star property that I intend to re visit....

Best retreat ever!

  • 5 of 5
Barbadon was an absolutely perfect, magical getaway. The beauty of the Lake, the quiet of a barren beach and the wonderful home with lakeviews from every room made this the most wonderful retreat. I stayed for 4 days and got the kind of deep rest and relaxation it usually takes 2 weeks to get! Nikki is the most generous and gracious host that ever lived and she thought of all the details to make this home a complete piece of heaven. Thank you so much for sharing your paradise! ....Madison, WI

Best vacation!

  • 5 of 5
I've never posted a review before, but absolutely have to for this great vacation we just had. We rented the larger cottage for 1 week...the photos on the site do not do the cottage justice. Can you imagine my shock when we approached on the red carpet walkway! That sums up our vacation, it was a red carpet experience. The kitchen is much better equipped than I expected. The views, the deck, the beach...everything is perfect. We are so grateful to Nicola who was so accomodating and for making this place available for people to enjoy. We found we do not need to fly to some great destination to have a great vacation at a great place. Highly recommended and we hope to come again.

We love this place, best sand/beach anywhere, hopefully they will start renting Barbadon (winterized) so that we can come up for long weekends in the late fall and winter. You really have to see it to believe it, we will always be coming back.

Exactly what you need

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have been renting here for almost 20 years - we honeymooned here! SteNicStuBil (larger cabin) has every amenity you need, and nothing you don't . . . (i.e. no TV, game system, knick-knacks, etc.). The kitchen is large and easy to cook in, the fireplace is cozy on cool evenings, and the beach - well, the beach is what keeps us coming back year after year (with friends, kids, etc.). Take a long walk, canoe, wade, bodysurf, or just doze on the shore of a seriously large body of fresh water. Watch the moon rise. Stick around and watch the sun rise, for that matter. Or sleep in to the sounds of an ever-changing lake. Do all this, just not when we plan to come!

Wonderful getaway for Chicagoans!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented this Oostburg getaway for three summers in a row, and it is such a wonderful place to visit. The beach is breathtaking, and the cabin is rustic and charming. My wife and I have a three year old and she often talks about our trips to the beach. It is located very close to Chicago, about a 2 hour ride from our northwest side condo, but feels like it is 1000 miles away. I highly recommend this location for a long weekend or a week long family vacation. The owners could not be more accommodating to my wife, daughter & myself. I have given our secret away to friends and family and everyone has been absolutely delighted with our little vacation getaway.
