Our family owned, 2-story vintage beach house, hand crafted by Master carpenters and masons, will provide a perfect setting for your Lake Michigan experience.
Backed by 10 wooded acres, with 300 feet of private white sand beach in front, this friendly cottage will draw you back time and again. From the stunning lake views to the gently rolling surf, you will be immersed in genuine historic Lake Michigan ambience.
An efficient kitchen welcomes you as your eye is drawn to the beautiful view from the dining area. The Master bedroom and bath opens off the dining area has 2 single beds. The Great room with its massive floor-to-ceiling field stone fireplace is opposite. Upstairs the bright and cheery East bedroom overlooks the lake, while the cozy knotty pine West bedroom faces the woods. Even the most wide awake will be lulled to sleep by the cool lake air and sound of the surf.
The front door off the Great room opens onto a covered porch and uncovered patio, just the place for leisurely morning coffee, picnic lunches or afternoon cocktails. The front lawn with its lannon stone fire ring is great for cozy campfires under the stars, ghost stories and toasted marshmallows. The private beach is just the ticket for sun bathing, inner tubing and swimming. Known as the best surfing in the midwest when the surf is up, it is great for swimming and kayaking when the lake is calm. Extensive gradual sandbars and shallows means that the water is usually warmer than the rest of Lake Michigan and is just over 6 feet deep over 100 feet from shore.
Located just minutes south of Sheboygan, the area abounds with things to see and do. Nearby (1 mile) Kohler-Andrae State Park, with its nature center, famous sand dunes, and biking trails are a nature lovers dream. For those more interested in indoor pursuits, the shops at Kohler and the world class American Club spa are only 15 minutes away. World famous Elkhart Lake auto racing is just 30 minutes away.
Boat launches are available both north in Sheboygan, and south at the county park if you are after trophy lake trout or salmon. In September and October the property will accomodate 1 bowhunter.
For golf lovers, a multitude of golf courses are available including highly regarded Black Wolf Run and Whistling Straits, host of the 2010 PGA Championship.

Peter's grandparents built the cottage and in 2007 we were able to once again get the cottage back in the family. Our children have since been able to enjoy the beach and cottage just like he did growing up. We love the vintage feel of the cottage because it takes us back to the simple things in life - family, fun and time together enjoying both.
The location is great since you can easily get to the world famous American Club and days spa, Milwaukee, or Chicago for the day, but come home to the quiet and stars for a quiet walk on the beach at night.
