Overview

Oostburg House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Nestled between the pristine sandy shore of Lake Michigan and a forest of cedar and pine lies a modest beach house only a few steps from the lake. Neat, clean, and filled with natural light the house offers lake views from almost every window. So close to the water that you feel as if you could reach out and touch it, Lake Michigan offers indescribable sun and moon rises that will leave a lasting impression. In summer, the days are full of sun and sand, exploratory walks on miles of coastline, and serene sounds of nature abound. The beach extends well into the water with an all sand bottom and sand bars stretching as far off shore as one's toes can touch. Nights include bonfires, lapping waves, and shooting stars that seem to fall in to your lap. In winter, a family puzzle, books/movies, and the crackle of a wood fire make the snow a welcome guest. No matter the season, you will feel refreshed, renewed and longing to return.

Why Darren and Kristen Weisberg chose Southern Wisconsin

While visiting friends many years ago my wife and I fell in love with the little town of Oostburg. We were amazed to find a pristine beach combined with a north woods feel without having to drive 5 hours to Michigan or Door County. A few years later we had the opportunity to buy this house and couldn't resist. It is our favorite place to be.

What makes this house unique

The feel of the ocean without the salt. The location reminds many of Nantucket. A walker's paradise, one can comb miles of sandy shoreline to your heart's content. There is a great sense of privacy here since the house is located on a private lane. One seldom sees many other people during the week.

Dog hair everywhere!

  • 1 of 5

The outside of the house was beautiful, as depicted. The inside was not ready for guests. We were covered in long white dog hair. The furniture and floor where covered in fur. We vacuumed for two hours. There were cob webs. There were even cob webs with dog hair dangling from it. The cleaning person brings her family who seem to vacation at the house while she works. It maybe distracting from the work. Anyway this place is charming from the outside and neglected on the inside. If you do rent be sure to be on top of your security deposit. It took a little doing to "remind" the owners about refunding what was due.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week in this house this past July with my family of 5 (1 4 year old, 2 1 year olds) and truly enjoyed this retreat. Great location where you experience both the woods and the lakefront. Have access to both a great grass backyard and a great sandy beach where kids can play and enjoy the surroundings. All sand beach extends out at least 500 yards offshore. House is well outfitted with all the games and equipment you could want for a beach getaway. No AC but we found that completely unnecessary even though we had very warm weather during the day the week we were onsite. Highly recommend.

PGA week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed on this property during the PGA week. This is a beautiful location, in a quiet and secluded area. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals, access to a washer and dryer and chairs for the beach. The views from the master bedroom and living area were million dollar. The deck area had ample chairs for reading, as well as seating for dining outside. The owner was always quick to respond. It was a very relaxing week for us and we would definitely return!

A little piece of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

I just spent the most relaxing week at this wonderful place! I can't begin to describe how peaceful and beautiful it was to walk along such a beautiful and quiet beach! I spent early mornings walking the beach with my Bernese Mountain dogs as the sun rose beautifully over the lake. In the evenings we enjoyed a fire and a full moon on the beach! We plan on coming back often! It was so hard to leave!

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are both fantastic. We spent Memorial Day weekend at this house and very much enjoyed our time (as did our dogs!). We loved the home's beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Great beach chic decor, comfortable beds, everything was clean, awesome beachfront, very nice owners, etc... We will definitely return!

Wonderful beach home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in June 2013 and liked it so much we returned this past September for another week's stay. We appreciated how clean, comfortable, and well-equipped the house was. We enjoyed watching the sunrise in the morning and the full moon shimmering on the water at night. The view from the house and deck is stunning. We greatly enjoyed our many quiet walks along the clean and ever-changing beaches. The sound of the waves was was a constant reminder of the greatness of Lake Michigan. We would highly recommend this beach home as a vacation spot.
