Oostburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

If you would like to look at a spectacular sunrise in the morning and a sky that feels so close that you can touch every star in the evening, then you will enjoy our special place on Lake Michigan. It has been our summer getaway since the 80's and now that our children are grown and spread out across the globe, we are finally willing to share our jewel with others. Quiet, private, peaceful, and contemplative. It is truly a gem. We are approximately 45 minutes north of Milwaukee, and 15 miles south of Sheboygan. For golf enthusiasts, Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run are very nearby. The beach enables you to walk for miles, but for those who are more sedentary, our private sandy beach will allow you hours of swimming and sunning enjoyment. We have two decks, one in front, which overlooks Lake Michigan, and the other in back, overlooking a wooded area. If you enjoy bonfires on the beach and searching for constellations at night , this is the place for you!

Wonderful lake house!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy, charming lake house had everything we needed for a week's vacation: well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living room, nice bedrooms, lots of sunlight. The beach was an easy walk through the grass and fairly secluded. Our kids loved to dig in the sand, splash in the water and explore all the children's books in their bedroom. We took long walks on the beach multiple times a day, enjoying the lake's ever-changing moods, and listened to the waves crash at night. The week flew by! We hope to go back next summer!

Loved this cottage and location!

  • 5 of 5

Every photo of this rental property was accurate and what we got was what we expected from the photos -- beautiful, welcoming and comfortable. This cottage was so lovely that we really hated to leave when our week was up. It was so accessible to the beach and so convenient to nearby attractions. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. This cottage had every amenity possible which made our stay even more comfortable. Loved 'conversing' via email with the owner of this property. Nancy was very helpful in suggesting age-appropriate places to visit and any questions we had were answered promptly and completely. This property was so clean and well-maintained, I would have bought it on the spot! We went to the Kohler Design Center which we all loved, even my grandchildren. The Storybook Garden was fantastic for old and young alike. We also visited Cedarburg and the Riveredge Nature Center in Newburg. We all loved Cedarburg and the kids didn't want to leave the Nature Center. My favorite thing was walking along the beach every morning for 1/2 hour each way -- it was a fantastic, relaxing, and thoughtful time for me each day to just dream and enjoy the beauty of Lake Michigan. I can't recommend this cottage and location highly enough!

Great Beach Walks

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was great. We really enjoyed the wonderful beach and took long daily beach walks. The house was very comfortable and we loved hearing the sound of the waves. Nancy the owner was easy to work with and there was a basket full of area maps and brochures on the desk in the living room that proved to be very helpful. We discovered several really good restaurants in Sheboygan, which is just minutes away, and also had dinner one evening at Kohler's American Club. I am sure we will be back sometime in the near future.

Wisconsin visit

  • 5 of 5

Had a great visit, the Lake was pristine clear and warm, the beach was clean, the weather in August was cooler, which we like. We enjoyed the attractive well furnished house.

A great vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a peaceful vacation. We got up early a few days to watch the sunrise - it was just beautiful. Even my 22 year old son (who usually likes to sleep in) got up for it! Having dinner in the dining room and watching the moonrise over the lake.........A great library for a great read on the beach. We even used the telescope. Nancy the owner is great to work with and answered all our questions. It's close enough to Milwaukee and Sheboygan for those who are looking for some night life. We enjoyed visiting the American Club and checking out the Kohler Idea center. We will definately be back!

I Love Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

I love this cottage on the lake. We spent a wonderful week sunbathing, kayaking, riding bikes and eating. It is intimate, clean, well-organized and well-equipped. Mesmerizing views of the lake and a cozy wooded setting.
