Southern Wisconsin Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Stand alone cottage with private beach, includes patio, kitchen (with Sub Zero under counter refrigerator), full bath with stand-up shower - available for partial week, weekly, monthly, seasonal or year-round rent on exclusive lane in Oostburg, Wisconsin. Very tidy and clean!

Walk for miles on sandy beaches right out your doorstep - arguably the best stretch of private uninterrupted sandy beach in Wisconsin. This 'guest cottage' sits perched on the bank of a stream nestled in the trees and adjacent Lake Michigan.

Spacious beach area with a dedicated outdoor seating area over looking the water. Two outdoor parking spaces available. Great spot to get away from the city/suburbs and enjoy nature year round. From inside you'll feel at one with nature in this well designed dwelling. Secluded but not alone, this cottage shares a 2 ½ acre lot with the 'main house' used by the landlords and their guests.

Other features include your own fire pit on beach (firewood provided by tenant), picnic table at top of dune, beach chairs, assorted kids toys.

40' LCD HD TV with Satellite and Air Conditioning!

Why Dave McFadden chose Southern Wisconsin

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.

We can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I last traveled to this part of Wisconsin about 10 years ago when we stayed at the American Club for our second time. Although it was a nice trip, it was missing something. That something was Lake Michigan. We quickly became bored after a few hours of shopping and antiquing and decided we would never come back. I must admit, after finding this cottage on VRBO I did not know what to expect. Well, to say the least, we were rather surprised. First off, we loved the long, winding wooded road that leads to it. The trees instantly put your mind at ease. The cottage itself was clean, cozy and comfortable with an awesome view of the lake. I could just sit for hours in that living room reading while listening to those waves come crashing in. The beach is just a few short steps away and what a beach it is! We recently spent some time on the coast of Washington ( the Iron Springs Resort to be exact) and the beach here was every bit as nice. The water is so clear and blue! We honestly loved it and will be returning. The price was reasonable and the owner was very kind and easy to deal with. We will never forget just how perfect our vacation here was.

Lake Michigan Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

It was a relaxing week for us to be on Lake Michigan! The cottage had everything we needed although the slow internet speed was frustrating, but speed in that location is a challenge. My daily walks on the beach were refreshing after the heat of the cities. It was a cool week over all so we even used the heat one night! The cottage has all you need: small but very nice refrigerator! Makes wonderful ice and fast! Nice TV! We cooked several meals on the grill.

Quaint and secluded-just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

As first time Wisconsin sightseers wanting to add 3 nights on the lake without spending too much money, we were very happy to have found this place. It has all the amenities we needed: queen bed with plenty of closet/storage space in bedroom, nicely appointed bathroom with tile shower, family room+eating area+basic kitchen with plenty of seating and space for 2 more to sleep on, flat screen t.v. with a few cable channels+decent wi-fi, and a screened in porch. Some would describe it as "vintage" since the appliances and furnishings are older, but they were all well serviced, clean and sufficient for our stay. Great Air Conditioning (European unit seemed brand new!). Bring your own beach towels and BUG SPRAY, as it sets within the canopy of mature trees and densely wooded surroundings which open to the beach and beautiful Lake Michigan just over a sandy crest. We felt like we were the only ones in the area, it was so peaceful. We enjoyed walking along the shore, Judi's in Oostburg for brunch (the Piggly Wiggly located just behind), spending the day in nearby Milwaukee, as well as "big box" stores & restaurants off I-43. A WONDERFUL PLACE FOR US TO ESCAPE THE EVERYDAY WITHOUT SACRIFICING COMFORT!

Quiet haven

Excellent and quiet spot, well furnished for a family of 4. Enjoyed quiet walks on the beach and the long trail. Breakfast at Judy's was great.

Little Bit of Zen

  • 5 of 5

We are an older couple who rented for a long weekend. The cottage is comfortable and nestled in a lovely spot next to a calm creek that empties into the Lake, which is visible from the living area. Despite our bad luck in hitting a spell of cloudy weather, we still enjoyed the beauty and quiet. The owners are very nice folks, too! Try these friendly local restaurants with hearty everyday fare: Judi's Place, Oostburg, and Majerle's Black River Grill, Sheboygan. Kohler-Andrae State Park, with a beautiful sand dune boardwalk beside the Lake, should not be missed.
