Why Dan McFadden chose Oostburg

Purchased as a weekend getaway, the property has been the backdrop for many significant family events and celebrations over many years.

What makes this cottage unique

walking the beach, property and private road with family and friends. Building sandcastles at the lake along the banks of the stream, swimming, bonfires, perching up above the lake and taking it all in. Grilling and dining al fresco.

Peaceful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay! The place was perfect and the view of the creek and the lake were so wonderful. We had a lot of fun making a fire in the fire pit and we even spotting a few deer!

The hosts were very kind and even offered to let us stay later than the checkout time on our last day because no one else was coming in. (sadly we couldn't but we would have loved to!)

A great experience! Thank you!

Great little cottage on a beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful, relaxing stay, this is a wonderful place to go! We were welcomed when we arrived and the owners made sure we were comfortable. Amenities were neat, clean and it showed that some thought was put into what guests will need. We used the screen porch for almost every meal and for evening chats.

Says sleeps 4, but two beds would be more comfortable for kids. We'd say it is better for a romantic get-away for two. Definitely recommend and will probably be back next year!

Quiet, quaint, and gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

Driving in the cottage was much more secluded than I thought it would be, which was wonderful. It had all of the things we needed, my only one teensy "complaint" would be the slowness of the internet, but honestly that's not what we came here for, it definitely didn't deter us from enjoying everything. :) My toddler would request that we go make sandcastles all day long, and she loved wading through the stream area, which was great for her as opposed to the waves sometimes. I loved the sounds of the waves coming in at night and the view was just amazing. This is definitely a favorite vacation place of ours now.

Peaceful, rustic getaway with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three spent two wonderful days relaxing at this cottage. It was comfortable and private. The beautiful sandy beach is 100 yards from the cottage, with lounge chairs and a fire pit. This is a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the sound of the waves. Thank you so very much to our hosts!

A great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a truly wonderful couple of days! It was exactly what we were looking for. Quiet, off the beaten path, clean and comfortable. Things move slow in Oostberg, which was FINE with us. Also had dinner in Sheboygan which was just a few minutes away and very much enjoyed it. Enjoyed our coffee on the beach one morning, nice way to start the day! We wanted something laid back and easy going. We were not disappointed! Had the great fortune to meet and talk with the owners. Very nice, accommodating folks. The beach and waves provided a great backdrop. Once again, thank you for a VERY enjoyable stay.
