Why The Owner chose Cedar Grove

We feel like this is the best kept secret just North of downtown Milwaukee on Lake Michigan. Nearby Harrington Beach State Park also offers some great fishing spots!

What makes this house unique

We take a lot of pride in our beautiful home and the pictures just don't do it justice! We hope that you and your family will say it was one of the best vacations of all time!

Beautiful & Relaxing Stay @ the Big Chill

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend Big Chill for your next vacation spot. It was private & tranquil. We planned on going into Milwaukee for a day trip, but honestly we had so much fun @ the house we never left except to go grocery shopping. The kids spent hours in the pool & combing the beach. Lake Michigan was still a bit chilly in Mid June, but we still kayaked & played along the shore. Couldn't have been more pleased!!

Fourth time we have visited this lake house. Each time has exceeded our expectations. So many memories have been created here, it almost feels like home. This gigantic retreat is completely updated and decorated to a T. Lots of gathering spots inside and out, making it easy to host adults and children.

Absolutely love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home with two other families, including 7 kids ranging in age from 5–11. We had an absolutely fantastic time. The home is huge, and very well laid out with a full basement that has a pool table and ping-pong, a theater room, and plenty of sleeping space. There's a large kitchen with plenty of space to cook and entertain. The beach is huge - lots of frontage and space for campfires, great for walks, and also very good for swimming. The kids had a wonderful time in the pool. There's so much to do here whether it's rain or shine - you really can't have a bad time. We can't wait to go back!

Heaven on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

Wake up to sunrises over lake Michigan. All bedrooms face the lake and waves at night lull you to sleep. The basement has full game room for teenagers with pool table, foosball, ping pong table and dart board. There is theater room with large projector screen and large screen TV in family room and a separate sitting room facing lake for quiet. The kitchen,with view of pool to watch kids, is a chefs dream full of all amenities (as well as grill on covered porch). Multiple bedrooms to accommodate everyone as well as masters suite with deck facing lake. There is over 100 feet of beach to play volleyball or build sand castles. Location is perfect near Kohler and Cedarburg for quick getaways and short bike ride to Harrington beach state park. House is clean and everything in it is like new (beds, couches, furniture and appliances). We would recommend this to everyone, why travel far when paradise is just around the corner.

Our favorite place for family and friends!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this home several times. It is the most wonderful and relaxing setting I know. Walks on the beach, campfires and cookouts, swimming in the pool and splashing in the waves. My children love going to the house with the no salt ocean.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our family get together! The house was large enough for us to spread out yet provided many spaces for us to spend quality time together. The kids especially loved the theater room and game room. The adults enjoyed the 2 large living spaces with fabulous kitchen. The weather could have been better, but even with limited use of the pool/ beach we had a wonderful trip!
