Overview

Oostburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Within Steps of Lake Michigan And Woods

The Cottage is a beautifully decorated French Country bungalow located on 7.5 acres of a privately owned compound. Miles of Lake Michigan sand is simply steps away through a walk of the stunning gardens. Just up a few stairs you will find yourself on the shores of Lake Michigan. Visitors often remark that it is as vast and magnificent as any ocean. It truly earns its place among the Great Lakes. Beach chairs and sand toys are available for a relaxing day of play in the sand.

The property is home to 4 acres of wooded hiking trails through your own secluded cedar forest. No matter the season the adventure of exploring the woods is a highlight for visitors.

In the Spring, Summer and Fall, the fabulous outdoor grill is available for your cooking pleasure with plenty of outdoor seating. Inside the cottage, a coffee maker, mini fridge and toaster allow the conveniences of any hotel - but with luxury, views and comfort that is unsurpassed.

Located north of Milwaukee and just 15 minutes south of historic Kohler, there is plenty to do for those looking to stay busy. However, if you are looking to do absolutely nothing in a luxurious private setting than The Cottage is where you need to be.

As a romantic getaway, a charming stay for a girls weekend, or a family with children The Cottage at Casa del Lago is an ideal home away from home.

The alternate name for Casa del Lago is The Sanctuary, with good reason. This is a property like none other. The smell of cedar, the wind in the trees, the lapping and/or roar of the waves, with the morning birds, will transform your body and mind during your stay.

We're pretty sure your first time visiting The Cottage at Casa del Lago will not be your last... Come and find out for yourself!

Why G. & J. San Jose chose Oostburg

When my husband decided that he wanted to look for a lake house, I was skeptical and hesitant. With two young children at the time and plenty of property maintenance with our home in Chicago, I couldn't imagine taking on another burden.

We had looked in Indiana and Michigan to no avail, but when a friend invited us to Kohler for a visit - we decided to look at some homes along the Lake on our way to their place.

I could hardly contain myself when walking the grounds with the realtor - it was more than we could have ever imagined. As I told my husband then, do not waste another minute looking elsewhere, this was the place.

You will undoubtedly understand why when you come. Casa del Lago has been a blessing to our family not a burden and one we are thankful to be able to share with you.

What makes this cottage unique

You won't leave the same as you arrived. It is impossible to walk the property, breath in the cedar scented air and hear the constant lapping of the lake and not be changed. You will sleep deeper, feel calmer and find that that the evasive answers to your questions are answered in the space that can only be described as a sanctuary.

Charming and Luxurious Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our cottage and its secluded location by the woods and pristine beach. Our boys had so much fun playing in the sand and walking the wooded trails. The cottage was warm and beautifully decorated. The owners made us feel welcomed and right at home. Of course we were blessed with beautiful weather and our experience was that more enjoyable. Breakfast was not too far away at Judi's Place. It was a short drive to get to Kohler and Sheboygan's Pier. The photos displayed do not do this place justice, if you can imagine that. The property was clean and well-maintained and we will return again. Thank you George for your hospitality!

Awesome place to go and relax!

  • 5 of 5

What an excellent place to relax! Excellent location off the highway and isolated from the crowd. The owner has taken care of every inch of the property with lots of care. We enjoyed every moment on this cottage.

We had traveled to Peru, costa-rica, Amazon expeditions in south america and some Beaches in Mexico, Carribean and Italy but I tell you what; We spent lots of time on travel but never had a relaxed trip like this!!

We love this place! and this is the place to go and relax! an excellent beach within reach

A Midwest Beach Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love the beach and wanted to share that experience this summer with our children. Of course, the idea of driving or flying to Florida was not appealing with three young kids (7, 6 and 1), so we took our first vacation north to Casa Del Lago. This stretch of beach on Lake Michigan was very pristine and a private oasis (only a couple of people walked by during our three night stay). Our boys played volleyball, soccer, and baseball, built sandcastles, and just ran in and out of the water. It was a great family beach experience in the Midwest.

Since the cottage is only a minute or two from the beach we were able to lay our daughter down for her naps and easily maintain her schedule. The cottage is designed and decorated well. The owners have thought of everything. In fact, there are other forms of entertainment such as video games, tv, movies, board games and books. Of course, we did not have time for those things since the weather was perfect (early August). In fact, we even spent a couple of late nights by a fire with the calming sounds of the waves.

Lastly, the grounds are well manicured and provide great backdrops for our family pictures.

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wow, rented this cottage based on all the positive reviews and we loved everything about our time at this beautiful sanctuary. The cottage was charming and clean and filled with lovely amenities. We lucked out with amazing weather so we spent most of the weekend enJOYing the grounds which are a wonderful mix of beach and dune grass and gorgeous trees of all kinds. Made you feel like you were really on vacation. Our family (with teens) played volleyball several times a day and you could not have had a better backdrop. We took advantage of the basketball court and walking through the trails. Our favorite was early morning coffees and walks on the beach followed by relaxing and reading in the many chairs provided. Our family especially loved the fire pit and the endless wood that was provided to us as we cooked each of our meals over the fire pit with the beautiful waves lapping in the background and the seagulls flying. It felt like your own private beach and was just a wonderful oasis for our family to gather and make memories before school began. We even took our Christmas card photo there one night! Thank you so much. We look forward to returning again one day. The only negative was that there were a lot of mosquitos.....hard to avoid in that wooded area but they were manageable. Just had to open and close the cottage door quickly without the lights on!

Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, cozy, comfy cottage in the woods just a few steps away from the beach. The house is beautifully appointed with a French theme running throughout the rooms. We loved walking on the beach which goes for miles in both directions from the property and then returning to the cottage to warm up with hot chocolate. It was a cold weekend when we were there but the bathroom has heated floors and the rest of the house was warm. Being surrounded by cedar and pines, the fresh air, the quiet, was just what we needed. Thanks to the owners who've created a little oasis for their guests.

Casa del Lago is the perfect location for any traveler. If you are looking simply for a little cottage in the woods for some private time for yourself or loved ones, you will be refreshed and rested from your stay. For those looking to golf, shop or pamper themselves with all that Kohler has to offer, Casa del Lago is the ideal place to return to after a day out. If Milwaukee's museums, cultural attractions, etc. are what draws you to the dairy state - the cottage at Casa del Lago provides a cozy resting place after a long day of sightseeing.

Just south in Cedar Grove - there is wine tasting and charming shops.

Downtown Sheboygan and the lakefront offers wonderful dining and local attractions.
