About the Property
Lovely deck over looking the Lake
Kitchen is fully equipped including spices, sugar, flour and oil.
The Lake during the winter months can be breath taking, watch the ice shelf build and then be destroyed by the waves. You can cross country ski, snow shoe, sit and read a book by the fire. Please do not walk up onto the ice shelf, if you would fall in or break the shelf it would be almost impossible to crawl back out.
In the summer months the main attraction here is beautiful Lake Michigan and the beach. Without a doubt, the sand is some of the finest in the world. On top of that, the beach is private. There is a fire ring on the beach for evening bonfires. The Lake, while generally cool until July, has a sandy bottom that gradually becomes deeper. Beach furniture and a few beach toys and games are provided. If the salmon are running, it’s possible to catch dinner while wading in the Lake. For most though, it’s a cup of coffee watching the sun rise, the warm sand on toes while reading a book, building sand castles, throwing the football, and relaxing. The Lake can change quickly from smooth as glass to huge waves with a strong undercurrent; children need to be supervised at all times for their safety.
Our property is for family vacations. If you want to plan a large gathering for a day please contact Kohler Andréa State Park. They have great facilities for large groups. Their phone number is 920-451-4080.
There is a grocery store,ice cream and coffee shop, hardware store,Bakery, post office and two restaurants in Oostburg, two miles directly west. Sheboygan has many delicious restaurants plus shopping. Plenty of golf courses are available for every ability level.
Lake Michigan is high this year so there is not as much beach for walking as there has been. This is a cycle of the Lake. Currently there is a shorter beach in front of Barbadon.

Why the Owner Chose Oostburg, WI, USA:
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 House:
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.
