Mark grew up in the Cedar Grove area and on the farm where we now live. We are 5th generation on the farm. We have a working dairy farm -milking 130 cows and a herd of 26 llamas and 2 alpacas and a dog, Samson, and a few farm cats. I was born in Germany and moved to America with my family when I was 6. We moved to Iron Mountain, Michigan, where we learned to speak English and American way of life. I moved to the huge city of Sheboygan after graduation where Mark & I met.

We bought land from Mark's parents on the east side of I-43 and east of Mark's parents farm. We lived there until Mark's parents retired from farming and Mark took over the farm. Mark's parents moved into our house and we moved into the farm home. We currently live and work on the farm, which is about 4 miles from the vacation house. Can you tell we LOVE this area!!!!?

Mark & Brigitte DeMaster purchased this chateau / country house in 2014

We wanted to purchase this property back because we LOVE the location and Brigitte's dad helped build it. It was our first home, and lots of great memories here with our kids being little.

A Lovely Home in the Country

  • 5 of 5
My family and I arrived at this beautiful home on a Saturday in August. We found the home so comfortable, cozy and clean. All the little comforts of home were provided. Brigette had left a whole Tupperware container of delicious home baked muffins that we quickly availed ourselves of! She also left us a large package of both cheese curds and string cheese that was made from milk from their dairy farm just down the road! Deliciously fresh! (Also check out Brigette's Baehr Creek fabric/craft studio and Llama Farm!) The fridge contained many of the staples we would normally go out and buy at the store such as butter, condiments, etc. She also provided us with homemade apricot jam! Yummmy! All the linens, soaps, paper goods were provided, too!

The home has a large deck outside the kitchen, where we spent all of our mornings, drinking coffee and reading our books. Our dog love the very large, wooded yard, where we placed her on a long lead and tether. She laid out there for hours, enjoying both the sun and the shade. We were able to experience all different kinds of birds and birdsong while sitting out in the morning. So serene.

We traveled around the are to different activities and events. Sheboygan was a great place with lots to do. We went to the Kohler Art Museum where we were able to enjoy the whimsical art inspired by Kohler products, such as bedazzled toilets and sinks - and so much more that defies description. Worth seeing, and it is free to the public! We enjoyed walking the harbor, dining at the restaurants on the water (The Mucky Duck was a favorite), mini golfing by Blue Harbor Resort. There are many spa's in the area, including the one at Blue Harbor, had Mom had more time . . . maybe next time. Elkhart Lake is where we went swimming (Fireman's Beach), and on a pontoon boat tour through Victorian Village Resort. Most of the three resorts allow non-guests to enjoy water sports for a reasonable rate. The kids went horseback riding at a day camp in the town as well.
Hiking trails are abundant in the area: Harrington State Park has beaches and hiking trails, Amsterdam beach does as well. Each are within 5-10 min of the house.

At night, you can make yourself some s'mores (all ingredients provided) and enjoy a campfire in the woodsy backyard.

Everyone in the family had a wonderful trip. We will definitely be going back!
