Anam Cara, 'Soul Friend' in Gaelic, is truly a unique space. Sitting in the Black River Forest with its own 160 feet of Lake Michigan beach frontage, it offers unequaled opportunities for rest and recreation. Consider a large (sleeps 10) luxurious home on the lake and bring the whole family - or even go with another family for a week of unparalleled fun and relaxation. Bring your bicycles for miles and miles of picturesque riding.
Sit on the lakefront deck, patio or rooftop deck and watch the sunrise as it creates a palette of red, purple and aqua. Launch your kayak or sailboat for a day on the water or bring your small-size power boat, launch it at the nearby marina and 'beach' it in front of Anam Cara for your stay. Walk less than a mile down the beach to Kohler-Andrae State Park for some of the Midwest's most beautiful hiking, or simply swim and sunbathe your days away. Sit around the firepit in the evening, enjoying the sound of waves and the Wisconsin night. A large library, recreation room with a pool table, and sunroom offer further opportunities for solitary serenity or group fun. Anam Cara's fully equipped kitchen and dining room with a wet bar will allow you to practice those gourmet skills. Use the herbs and vegetables and an array of flowers from the garden and fire up the grill for some of Sheboygan's famous bratwurst. Need further renewal? Relax in the Japanese meditatio garden. Prepare to be renewed at this forested retreat on the water's edge.
