SERENE HOME & KEEPER'S COTTAGE, SANDY BEACH & LABYRINTH

Cedar Grove House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Located on a private gravel road, this Lake Michigan beach property is the perfect place for a family-and-friends getaway. The midcentury home has a wonderful, open feeling with a bay window to enjoy the lake view in the expansive living room and a large table in the dining room to gather at for meals and games. The master bedroom (with a Sleep Number king-sized bed and full bath en suite) is situated on the first floor. Guests in the three bedrooms on the second floor have use of a new adjacent second floor full bath or they can take advantage of the spa-like outdoor shower.

Relax on the lawn or walk a few feet to the beautiful sandy beach equipped with Adirondack chairs, umbrellas and firepit. The lake is clear and shallow near the shore making it a great place for young and old. Inner tubes and beach toys are available for use. Enjoy bocce ball and other games on the front lawn. A seven-circuit labyrinth is nestled in the backyard.

The two-bedroom keeper's cottage is located just west of the house above the 3+ garage. Roomy and cheerful, there are views of the lake on one side and woods on the other. An exercise area in the lower level invites you to use the treadmill, stationary bike and weight machine.

Bike ride on the Ozaukee Interurban Trail, golf at nearby Whistling Straits, Black Wolf Run or other golf courses in the area, visit Kohler Art Center or Above & Beyond Children's Museum in Sheboygan, or simply enjoy the spectacular sunrises, birdwatch and walk the beach for miles. All this and more awaits you at this serene beachside home. Feel free to contact us ahead of your visit for complete listing of local activities.

Family gathering at Serene Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time with our family at the Serene Home and Keepers Cottage. It is amazing how getting away from the fast lane to a secluded, serene spot on the big lake can sooth the soul. It was a great spot to reconnect and relax with our adult kids and grand-kids. We found it to be even more than we had imagined in spite of some storms that came through during the week. Since it was a cool week we enjoyed campfires in the evening and the kids enjoyed sleeping in in the mornings just about the time the sun had warmed things up we could enjoy the rest of the day. We enjoyed biking (Ozaukee Interurban Bike Trail) , hiking (The Lions Den) and kayaking (brought our own along) and game days/movie nights too. The grand-kids loved the outdoor shower (what a great idea) and the new second floor bath in the main house was just perfect for those sleeping up there. The sound of the waves was so soothing..Sunday morning I went out to see the sun come up as I sat on the beach with my cup of coffee...that was a Kodak moment. Thanks to Sally and her team, we had everything we needed and loved every minute (except packing up in the rain which was out of anyone's control).

Awesome place for a family trip!

  • 5 of 5
We (9 adults and 6 kids) had a GREAT time at Firefly Farm! What a beautiful location! The house was so clean and had everything we could have ever asked for and more. Toys, bikes and games for the kids and plenty of space for the adults to relax. We loved sitting around the large table for meals. Sally was SO so so accommodating and helped us with our every request. The only thing the main house is lacking is another bathroom but Sally told us that is in the works this winter. We will definitely return and highly recommend Firefly Farm!

Cedar Grove Retreat

  • 3 of 5
My friends and I--all 60-somethings--had a nice time at Cedar Grove. The location on the beach was the highlight, although the extreme heat restricted us to only three campfires in 7 nights. We also appreciated the large kitchen table, so the 9 of us could eat our dinners together. It was too hot and buggy to eat outside at the lovely, big tables; however, that is also a plus about this VRBO. The biggest disappointment was the bathroom situation. Although advertised as a 3.5 bathroom cottage, the main house only has one full bath in the master-bedroom suite, which left 4-5 of us sharing a 1/2 bath on the main floor. There is no bathroom on the second floor where the three bedrooms (for 5 people) are located. Two full bathrooms are in the Keeper's Cottage--one in the garage and one on the floor with kitchen, bedrooms, living room and screen porch. After swimming in Lake Michigan, we enjoyed the outdoor shower, but if more than three us lined up to access it, the hot water was gone!
Additionally, only one of the three second-floor bedrooms has a window air conditioner. It was in the 90's all week, so some of us were quite uncomfortable during the night. A final suggestion for the owners is to invest in more lighting. It was difficult to read in bed in most of the bedrooms. We liked the nearby golf courses, casino, shops in local towns, and time to catch up with one another. If your family or friends is comfortable in a cabin-like setting, this is the place for you. If you are looking for updated bathrooms, furniture, and bedrooms, you will find this a bit tired.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your suggestions. We are always looking for ways in which we can improve our homes and help to make a more pleasurable experience for our guests. Your input helps us to become aware of such improvements and it is very much appreciated.
Glad you could enjoy a few of our outdoor amenities in spite of the heat that Mother Nature sent during your stay and that you also had an opportunity to take in some of the other sites that the area has to offer.
It was a pleasure meeting all of you!
Sincerely,
Sally

BETTER than "Excellent"!

Firefly Farms is SUCH a magical place! We spent the first half of the week on our annual girls' trip with all the female relatives on my dad's side (9 months - 79 years old!) and the second half of the week with my immediate family. The house really was perfect in terms of having ample space. And amenities! There were toys inside AND outside for the kiddos, a large dining table that sat all of us, and plenty of seating everywhere. We didn't even have time to break out the Ping-Pong table or bikes! Of which there are about 10! We were so pleased. We barely saw anyone else during our entire stay. It felt like our private beach oasis. Thank you for such an amazing week.

Great location, very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
We (7 women on a girl's getaway) stayed in the house and apt the weekend of 10/12-14 and although the weather was cold and wet, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was just as shown in the photos and more - loved the fireplace. Upon arrival, we were greeted and shown where everything was and how to reach someone if necessary. You could tell the owner (and caretakers) cared for the property. The view and grounds were incredible and we all talked about how it would be the perfect place to come back to with family. Very relaxing!

Owner's Response: Very happy you enjoyed yourselves in spite of the crummy weather! I agree a fire in the fireplace while looking out at that beautiful lake is very relaxing... Hope to see you again!

What a discovery!

  • 5 of 5
Our family roots are in Wisconsin, so we rented this Lake Michigan home for a week in September to visit cousins, play golf in Kohler, and go to a Packers game in Green Bay. What a fantastic stay we had on all counts! And the best part of each day was coming back to Firefly for a walk on the beach and stoking up the fire pit! We cooked meals, rode bicycles, grilled outside, took pictures of sunsets and cloudburst, used both the main house and the adjacent living space, walked the labyrinth and garden, and LOVED the outdoor shower! Having manager Sally right down the road meant we never had a worry. This was a most delightful step into memories of how homes used to feel. . . a warm embrace by pine wood cabinets and windows always open. The upstairs bedrooms and deck served as a get-away for yoga or reading in peace and quiet. Already planning our return trip, so keep the light on for us! As the saying goes, some moments are priceless, and this was a weeklong jackpot!
