Follow our sandy beach path from our expansive porch to the shores of Lake Michigan. We provide plenty of chairs for you so pull one up and enjoy your own massive private beach (sun all day long). For those who like to hike or go for a leisurely walk, there are plenty of trails along the waterfront and through the woods with Kohler Andre State Park less than 1/4 of a mile up the beach.

Enjoy your evening either on the beach with a nice fire, on the porch or just relaxing inside. For those enjoying the cabin in the fall/winter there are lots of trails to walk, snowshoe or cross-country ski. With a full size wood burning fireplace you can cozy up with a nice book and enjoy your time.

Whether you are planning your visit in the summer or fall/winter there is nothing quite like being tucked in the woods on a Great Lake. Enjoy!!

Perfect summer vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a wonderful week at Nelly’s Cabin. The house & property are lovely. Our kids took advantage of the basketball court or a run around the picturesque Oostburg...and then enjoyed a jump in the lake.

The home has a tasteful, “lake house” decor and comfortable feel. We hosted extended family - a total of 16 people - for a BBQ and the deck was the perfect size.

We’d come back again!

Beautiful, well kept house and grounds

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time, even tho the weather was cold and snow on the ground. The unpaved portion of the road in was quite difficult to navigate the first day when there was a lot of mud and snow. However, the rest of the time we were there, as weather improved, the drive improved a lot and was no trouble. For winter vacationers, this driveway is something that should be mentioned. Otherwise a very good time and owner was responsive. Bonus was the deer that came close to the house and the use of Alexa in the house!

Great place for Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us that decided last minute to get together and Eric was a real pleasure to work with. Always getting back to me right away with any questions and/or concerns. They did a wonderful job remodeling the older cabin and made good use of the space while keeping the rustic old cabin flavor. Felt very homey. Even greeted us with a bottle of wine. Kitchen is small but has everything you need. Plenty of extra blankets, towels and bedrooms were cozy. One of use even slept in the downstairs den on fold out couch and she said it was very comfortable. Loved walking on the beach and we made it up to Terry Andrae State park. All of use enjoyed watching the deer come in looking for corn, but we had none to give. The extra table in the living room was great for playing games, starting a puzzle and doing crafts on while listening to music on "Alexa" and watching the fire. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate and we had to leave a day early. We had also hoped to enjoy the nice outdoor deck/furniture, grill and fire pit put was not to be. Do watch out for the potholes while driving back to the nicely secluded place. The house could use more table and/or floor lamps for reading especially in the bedrooms. Everyone agreed we would love to come back next year when hopefully the weather was better.

Just What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at the cabin. The cabin itself was clean, well furnished, and had everything we needed. Lots of games and activities for us to do as a family. Close to the beach and state park. Lots of options to hike and go exploring. It was a great relaxing getaway which allowed us to unplug and unwind (but had all the amenities/technology to connect if you so desired). We hope to go back in the future!

Great family trip

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great. It is exactly what you want in a getaway. The house is set in the woods yet is only a walk down a short path (you can see the lake from the cabin) from the beach so you really get the feel that you are off the beaten path. As for the house itself everything is updated, rooms are small but perfect for sleeping with comfortable beds, really nice sized living room that is great for sitting around as a family. They have everything you need there including basketballs for the courts, soccer balls, beach towels, etc... We went for 4 days but wanted to stay longer. The owner was very responsive to anything we needed help with and had someone come to look at an issue we had within 30 minutes. Can't wait to go again
