Owner info

Year Purchased: 1930

About the owner: This property has been in our family for 80 years. We are the third generation to be given the opportunity to care for this beautiful property.

Why the Owner Chose Oostburg:
Gramma(Bessie) camped on this very beach with 4 girl friends from Milwaukee in the 1920's . She fell in love with the Lake and the rest is history.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Oostburg is a darling town, it has the best Hardware Store and Bakery you will ever find. An easy drive from Chicago and without the crowds of Door County. Our beaches are private, the water clear with a sand bottom. There are plenty of other local attractions if you decide to venture from the Beach however most people that come to Bessie's Beach tend to just say put and relax.
