Oostburg house description

The serenity of your own private sandy beach is just steps from the deck, its uniquely soft sand rivaling the best of the tropical islands.
Your lovely home-away-from-home was fully renovated in 2008 and features unobstructed, Breathtaking views of Lake Michigan through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows.
The cozy master bedroom awakens to the warmth of Eastern and Southern exposure, perfect for watching majestic sunrises over Lake Michigan while you snuggle in bed.
As you rise to greet the new day and gather in the comfort of the spacious living and dining area, sunlight dancing on the waves seems to draw you through the sliding glass doors out onto your deck, then onto the beach, then into the lake.

The open plan living space truly inspires togetherness and creates lasting, happy memories for all to share.

High speed wireless Internet and cable TV keep you in touch with the real world . . . if you really want to.
Wouldn't you rather . . .
Stroll leisurely along the shore for miles in each direction . . .

Enjoy the sublime sunrise, the marvelous moonrise and the starlit skies from the peaceful tranquility of a your private deck . . .

Build sand castles with the wee folk . . .

Savor the flavor of your favorite meal as you dine under the stars . . .

Warm up the cool evenings around a crackling fire on the beach . . .

Drift off to sleep listening to the sound of waves crashing against the shoreline . . .

While you can enjoy the convenience of a having your own modern kitchen. If you want to leave the cooking to the pros, both fine and casual dining are available nearby in Sheboygan and Kohler and a good local restaurant 'Judi's' in town.

Enjoy fun for the whole family at Blue Harbor indoor water park in Sheboygan.

Golf at Whistling Straits, Blackwolf Run, The Bull, The Bog, and many more!

Pamper yourself at the luxurious Kohler Waters Spa with treatments available for both men and women.

Upscale shopping, antiquing, bike trails, Lake Michigan fishing charters and Road America are all within easy 15-20 minute drives.

Fall always brings a stunning collage of foliage color to the area and hiking our three beautiful state parks are a lovely way to take it all in. Kohler-Andre, Harrington Beach, and Kettle Moraine State Parks are all conveniently located.

In the winter, you can hike, cross-country ski or mountain bike along the Lake Michigan shoreline.

The home has 3 bedrooms (sleeps 6) and two full bathrooms (showers only). It features a rustic knotty pine interior, ceramic tile floors and ceiling fans throughout.

The master bedroom faces the lake and has a king bed and flat screen TV. The second bedroom, with a queen bed, is located on the North side and has a nice view of the lake through the trees. The third bedroom has two twin beds and a view of the backyard and woods.

As a one level ranch house with are few stairs, the home is accessible to folks who do not walk well, but there are 8 stairs as you walk up to the house from the driveway.

Continuous improvements made since the renovation have only enhanced its appeal as a cozy retreat in any weather in any season.

This home offers the best accommodations for serenity, tranquility and quality time with guests. It may be the closest home to the water's edge, providing easy access for enjoying the lake with family and friends.

Some homes for rent have quite a walk to the water's edge from which also has advantages but can be problematic if watching children or dining near the water.

Many guests return every year so don't wait 'til it's too late.

Come visit the Best Beach House now, eh!

              • Children Welcome:

                This area of Lake Michigan can be the biggest source of joy for children. Sunscreen, beach towels and sand toys provide hours of entertainment. I suggest wet suits in months other than August as the Lake has beautiful crystal clear water, but can be cold. The waves can be very large and powerful on occasion. Variety makes the experience more fun, but caution is advised for for children and adults as the Lake can be unpredictable in intensity. In the spring and sometimes in the months of June and July, the Lake can have small harmless fish that die on the shore, Alewives. During the summer at times algae accumulates and this can be off putting to some children. The gently sloping sandy bottom and shoreline visibility from the deck assists in allowing children to play and be supervised at the same time the adults are watching them. The sun can be fierce even though this is the Midwest. The sand provides endless opportunity for creativity and fun. ...moreless

                  Car: Necessary

                  Located in Eastern Wisconsin, in the rural Village of Oostburg is an oasis of calm, tranquility and peace. Your beachfront home rental has 3 bedrooms 2 bath with showers only, the most lovely quick and closest access to lake Michigan steps from your door and deck and the Best sand available.

                  The main attraction is being outside and enjoying nature. The Lake is cold, but beautiful and ever changing in color, waves and clarity. Walking along the beach miles to the north and south is a great way to spend family time throwing sticks and playing in the waves, running through the water, chasing the non-tame seagulls, feeling the sand and the breeze.

                  A crackling fire at night completes the day with star- gazing opportunities and marshmallow roasting. Go to sleep with the sound of the waves.

                  Your day begins with sunrise over your deck and coffee or tea and precious moments of quiet.

                  Nearby attractions are best described by the websites for them:Kohler-Andre state park, The American Club of Kohler, the Kohler Design center and shops at Woodlake market, world famous golf courses; Blackwolf Run and Whistling Straits, host at times to the PGA. (15 miles and 20 minutes)

                  Elkhart Lake is a short drive to world class auto racing, fine dining and quaint shops.

                  To the South is Milwaukee with its Summer Music Festival, Zoo and Lakefront activities.

                  To the west is Kettle-Moraine state park with hiking trails, cross country skiing.

                  Cedarburg is a destination for many guests in and of itself. It has a large indoor ice area, cute shops and a wide selection of delicious food. There is a glass blowing shop in Cedarburg, with 4 working kilns. Inquire further directly with them. There are several weaving and specialty craft stores.

                  Factory tours may be available for the Kohler factory where its world famous bathroom products and fixtures are manufactured.

                  Folks who enjoy fine meats and grilling will appreciate the quality and selection of options at Meisfields Market. (fourth exit north of the four Sheboygan exits.

                  Finer dining is available in Sheboygan and in the Kohler resort. Whistling straits may have dining opportunities depending on the season and guests.

                  There is a Private horse arena for indoor lessons if you make special arrangements with me first and the owners. (White Rose Farm, 2 miles away.)

                  The town of Oostburg itself is a picturesque, well maintained village of Dutch ancestry. Farms and farming activities circle the rental home and cows are nearby.

                  Infrequently, at sunset a parade of ultralights meanders along the shore with the gentle hum of engines and the brilliantly colored sails.

                  Wildlife includes deer, hawks, herons, seagulls, mallards, Canadian Honkers, Loons, hummingbirds, chipmunks, wild turkeys, and all supporting ecosystem inhabitants. Along with birds comes insects. There are the usual inhabitants in a wilderness setting.

                  The winter brings a pristine coat of snow to the area and provides its own opportunity for outdoor fun. Biking with winterized mountain bikes along the lake shore is a favorite activity as well as cross country skiing.

                  Boating does occur but is more suited to a canoe or Kayak when the water is calm. Power boats are not suited for mooring along the shore and should be kept at the Port in Sheboygan or Port Washington.

                  Now the unpleasant features that may annoy some guests: limited water use is encouraged as the 1,000 septic holding tank must pump out each drop of water that enters it from the household use. the pumping process will not interfer with your stay but can be annoying. There are bugs that live in the woods and come to visit the beach. We have mosquitoes, nats, flies, ladybugs, spiders and beautiful Dragon Flies. Last I checked we did not have a Lyme disease issue and those bothersome critters (ticks) were located primarily to the West. There are times of the year when the waves are huge and days when the water is completely calm. The Lake conditions are unpredictable and can change hourly. The water is often crystal clear. Sometimes algae grows along the shore in large amounts. There is no mud bottom to the lake. It has a soft sandy bottom and is generally shallow with rolling sand bars, and free of stones or rocks but check.

                  Temperatures change drastically and quickly. A variety of clothes should come with guests. The Lake is generally COLD. Wet suits help, and often it will warm up in the months of August and September.

                  In the early spring a wave of Ocean fish will migrate and die unpleasantly along the shore. They are annoying as they smell. The raccoons are fans but that may be all. They are quite pretty silver fish and children have been known to enjoy chasing them immensely. There may be poison oak and ivy. There are cloudy days and rainy days.

                  I can not begin to cover all the information I have gained in my 20 years in the area but will be happy to address your specific questions. Mention code 20 for a discount if you have read this far!


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: I grew up in different parts of Michigan and central Illinois so the connection to the small farming town of Oostburg is special for me. I come to unwind in all seasons, living my life at a much slower pace than usual. It affords me a much-needed respite from the cares of the every day. Life can be hectic and I am certain to feel relaxed as soon as I pull into the tree-lined drive. I enjoy the peaceful comfort of this cozy house with its ever changing, yet always extraordinary views. The charming little neighborhood, delightful community and friendly townsfolk consistently bring a smile to my face. I enjoy driving the local country roads and seeing horses, cows, green fields, harvesting of crops. Reading my latest book with my toes digging in the warm sand or walking barefoot along the beach, waves lapping upon the shore. Yet I can also be content whiling away the hours enjoying the antics of different bird species -seagulls busy themselves feeding in the shallow ripples, cardinals flit from tree to tree or Canadian honkers, majestic as they fly in tight formation along paths closely adhering to the shoreline, loons and even wild turkeys are visible to the patient. There is something so calming and soothing about the movement of the waves. Some days glittering and melodic, other days crashing similar to the intensity of the ocean. I have visited many locations around the US and still find this my favorite retreat in all seasons. I find it difficult to leave. The peace and serenity I experience helps me face the challenges of life.

                  Why the Owner Chose Oostburg:
                  The home provides my family and friends a chance to “get away from it all,” spend time indoors or out and make happy memories. I like the quiet, the woods, the beach, the great outdoors. It brings tranquility and calm to my life. The air is cleaner. The raw beauty in all seasons, captivating. The attraction of being almost in Lake Michigan makes this home truly special. Proximity to the Lake is the best of any property on Cardinal Lane. The waves can be alternately soothing or exhilarating, rivaling those of the widest, deepest oceans, changing in intensity and appearance as often as the wind. Neighboring wildlife come to bathe and sip the cool water. One of the unexpected joys is walking down our quaint little lane. The dirt road is gorgeous in any season, shaded by a variety of tall trees, walled by a bed of green ferns and backed by a dense thicket of swampy woods that only enhance the feeling of being far away from the urban jungle. The close-knit Cardinal Lane community is peaceful, lightly populated with lovely neighbors. The location is close to many and varied diversions and unbeatable for ease of access - only 2.5 hours from downtown Chicago and about 1 mile east off Rt. 43.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Best Beach House has easy access by car and no hassles with lines at check-in or waiting for elevators when all you want is to drop everything and relax. Unique to this part of Lake Michigan, the gently sloping beach is covered in blond, finely grained sand, but no rocks that hide underwater to surprise your every step and no swampy mud bottom to suck your flip-flops off. The lake water temperature and quality vary, but at times the it’s crystal clear and sparkles like diamonds in the sun over the smooth sandy floor. The home provides both family togetherness and “alone time,” depending on your mood. Beachcombing on sunny days, stargazing on clear nights, warming your weary bones around a crackling fire . . . Entertaining is easy, with snacks and drinks from the kitchen so conveniently accessible to the deck and beach. Wish I could be there to provide marshmallows, but firewood is provided for a beachside bonfire. Bring a DVD along or select from our collection of family board games if the weather turns. Oostburg has all the basic amenities, but sorry, no stoplights. Like much of small town America, it closes up early and Sunday. The charming Judi’s Diner for breakfast, lunch or dinner, the most delicious Oostburg Bakery, pizza, small supermarket, gas station, library and laundromat are all conveniently located in downtown Oostburg. Familiar big box stores (Costco, Target, etc.) are short drives if you are so inclined. Shopping is less painful in Wisconsin with the 5% Sales tax! For an abrupt transition from the laid back beach life to high end luxury, visit the American Club in Kohler. Pamper yourself with a treatment at their $7 Million Spa, hit the links on one of their championship golf courses, enjoy a superb meal at one of their many excellent fine dining restaurants or browse their exclusive WoodLake Shops for unique treasures. Check with the American Club for spa or golf packages and availability and review their calendar of special events.
