Stand alone cottage with private beach, includes patio, kitchen (with Sub Zero under counter refrigerator), full bath with stand-up shower - available for partial week, weekly, monthly, seasonal or year-round rent on exclusive lane in Oostburg, Wisconsin. Very tidy and clean!

Spacious beach area with a dedicated outdoor seating area over looking the water. Two outdoor parking spaces available. Great spot to get away from the city/suburbs and enjoy nature year round. From inside you'll feel at one with nature in this well designed dwelling. Secluded but not alone, this cottage shares a 2 ½ acre lot with the 'main house' used by the landlords and their guests.

Other features include your own fire pit on beach (firewood provided by tenant), picnic table at top of dune, beach chairs, assorted kids toys.

40' LCD HD TV with Satellite and Air Conditioning!

Nearby amenities include the world renowned golf courses of Kohler, WI, Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts in Sheboygan, and Elkhart Lake's Road America racetrack.

A note on WiFi. Although there is a WiFi router in the cottage, and it is active, we find it to be unreliable. If WiFi reliability is important please consider this.

Why Dan McFadden chose Oostburg

Purchased as a weekend getaway, the property has been the backdrop for many significant family events and celebrations over many years.

What makes this cottage unique

walking the beach, property and private road with family and friends. Building sandcastles at the lake along the banks of the stream, swimming, bonfires, perching up above the lake and taking it all in. Grilling and dining al fresco.

Peaceful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay! The place was perfect and the view of the creek and the lake were so wonderful. We had a lot of fun making a fire in the fire pit and we even spotting a few deer!

The hosts were very kind and even offered to let us stay later than the checkout time on our last day because no one else was coming in. (sadly we couldn't but we would have loved to!)

A great experience! Thank you!

Amazing location. Amenities are less than desirable

  • 3 of 5

Views and location to Lake Michigan is great. Outdoor Furniture is old and rickety.

Refrigerator is small. Windows don’t all work. No directions of what to do or where stuff is.

Clean, quiet, peaceful, amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two girls and absolutely loved it! The cottage is set back a bit in the woods - when we got there, we immediately walked over the little hill down to the beach and we were amazed! The lake was gorgeous and the beach was great for the kids. We spent the entire next day on the beach playing and swimming. The screened in porch was perfect for eating and relaxing. There is a fire pit on the beach perfect for relaxing and making s'mores. Our girls loved sleeping in the living room on the couches/beds - would recommend those for kids. Cabin was very clean and full of items to make our stay inviting. We didn't want to leave! Would highly recommend.

Perfect for the feel of the wilderness while remaining close to Milwaukee

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for what we needed: a place to relax near Milwaukee. The views were wonderful and rather unique - the cabin is situated beside both a creek that empties into Lake Michigan and the lake itself. The architecture was very fun as well. Although the cabin has been updated, it maintains a vintage feel in all of the right ways (built-ins, pink bathroom, avocado green kitchen nook, etc.). The owners were very friendly.
