Oostburg house description

'Tree Haven' is an exceptional Lake Michigan beachfront property located just 45 min. north of Milwaukee. Catering to non-smoking adult guests without children, this home is truly a stress-free getaway that will wash your cares away! Completely remodeled in 2010, this 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home is NOT your average cottage rental. Restoration Hardware decor abounds throughout the house, with a moderne-comfort theme. The Living/Dining area has a large table with seating for 6, sofa and chairs in front of a gas fireplace - all with views of the beach through the wall of sliding glass doors that lead onto the deck. The kitchen would please any gourmet cook! All stainless steel appliances, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, large Electrolux refrigerator, along with high quality cookware, utensils, china, flatware and barware would rival any 5 star resort. The Master Bedroom has a king size bed and double glass doors opening onto the screened-in porch that overlooks the Lake. Bedroom #2 has a queen size bed and Bedroom #3 has two twin beds. All beds have luxurious cotton linens, down pillows and down comforters. Bathrooms, one with shower over tub and one with shower only, are all tile with granite vanities, nickel hardware and 100% cotton towels. Although you'll love the interior, the deck overlooking the Lake is where you'll want to be! Nothing is more soothing than listening to the sound of the the waves while having cocktails, dinner or just 'sitting' on the deck. The patio table has an umbrella to provide shade if desired, and it wouldn't be unusual to spend the entire day there - but when you step off the deck into the sand, you'll definitely want stick your toes in the water! The beach is only a few feet away and there are beach chairs and a beach umbrella if that's where you'd rather be. You can walk for miles on the white sand . . . As the sun goes down, you might enjoy a fire in the brick fire pit while watching the moon rise.

We hope you're getting the ambiance of the place, but there are a number of other amenities worth mentioning. The property has a two car garage, 37' TV with BluRay player, many DVD's and a CD player with iPod dock. Wifi is included with all rentals.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: My husband and I live in the Milwaukee area. I grew up on Lake Michigan and have always wanted to return to it when my working career concluded. Fortunately, my husband shares my love of the water and the secluded peacefulness of this location. We have spent a great deal of time and effort on this house to make it a very special place, and one day we will retire here. We are happy to be able to share our little piece of paradise with some excellent renters.

              Why the Owner Chose Oostburg:
              After spending 2 years looking for waterfront property on Lake Michigan, my family finally purchased this house in 2009. We spent a year remodeling it with a contemporary theme in mind - clean, simple, elegant. Although it is a four season home, we are making it available only for the summer months - the most desirable period for renters.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This is our future retirement home. We have not spared expense on making it a lovely place, and we hope that is evident when you see it. Since we live nearby, I will personally greet all guests and do my best to insure that their stay is a relaxing, stress-free and memorable one.
