Cottage on Lake Michigan for rent, 140 miles north of Chicago 40 minutes north of Milwaukee. We love our house on Pine Beach but we can't be there as much as we like--schedules are just too busy. If you have a friend who loves the area, it's beautiful. Two bedrooms, 1 ½ baths, lots of living area and I can email you pictures.
Amenities: Complete kitchen, firepit and kayaks are available for use.
Activities:Swimming, sailing, fishing, hiking...
your kids will have the best time!
Area: 5 minutes from Sheboygan, 10 minutes from Port Washington (great seafood restaurants)
We visited Oostburg and stayed at this cozy home on Lake Michigan. Lots of privacy, beautiful beach and gorgeous sunsets/sunrises. Restaurants/shopping very close but we enjoyed just making bonfires on the beach every night.
Our family loved the location of this property. The home was right on the beach, and easily accessible. The beach was very well kept, and clean. The view was very lovely!! The home was cozy, & nice, but would have liked to be cleaner. It was roomy, and the view from the house to the lake was wonderful!! Our family enjoyed some great time together, relaxing, playing, & enjoying!! Would recommend this vacation spot.
The owner was flexible and able to accommodate my arrival on short notice. I absolutely needed to get away from the city and this was the perfect hide-away from it all! The house was clean and stocked with what was needed for sleeping, cooking, and even kayaks to enjoy the lake close-up! With the Town of Oostburg only a few miles inland, I was able to get some groceries, great wine, and cheese, along with some amazing local bakery too! There is not much else that compares to a fire on the beach at night...I cannot wait to bring the kids.
Loved it, inside was awesome, big, very "beachy", dogs swam & had a great time. So serene, peaceful & beautiful, hated to leave & go back to Chicago! Can't wait to go back there! Phil, Nikki, Jake the dog, Joe, Ula & Hunter the dog. Go there, you will have a wonderful time!
This place is the cat's meow. You are right on the lake! 30 yards to the water with plenty of clean sand between. Dunes like beach (If you ever been to Indiana dunes, it's a similar waterfront). Seems like all sand a mile deep into the lake - no rocky bottom!. There are patches of algae drifting under water but not enough to damper the enjoyment. The Gerard's also allow you to utilize their kayaks which are a hoot. Plenty of room to play frisbee or badminton. Of course there's a bon fire pit as well. They provided us with a full propane tank for their grill too!
Inside: The 12 foot window in the living room acts as a large tv providing relaxing entertainment. They have most of what you'd need as far as kitchen utensils go. If you're staying long and have many clothes you will find they are a dresser short.
There is no wi-fi! Which is great if you ask me, no need to connect, the point here is to disconnect! The only connection you make here is with the tranquil sounds of the waves (which never stop!) and the family or friends you bring along.
My family of 5 came and stayed at this charming cottage- what a great secret in WI! The beach was private, we had bonfires every night, the decore was very beachy/casual and there was great shopping and restaurants nearby. We're definitely coming back to Oostburg to this beach house!
