About the Property

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Lodge at Steinthal is Your Home away from Home!

It's location is idyllic; a beautiful timber frame home that serves as my family's guesthouse is located on an 80 acre retreat nestled within the woods of rural Wisconsin, yet located close to everything Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties have to offer. Many nearby attractions will keep you occupied including museums, shopping, hiking, golfing, fishing, road biking and much more!

However, there's really no need to even leave the premises if you want to relax on the property since The Lodge at Steinthal is complete with an on-site tennis court, dock and swim platform on a natural 5 acre, 35 foot deep spring fed private pond for fishing, canoeing and swimming. A gas grill is available for outdoor grilling on the patio and the fully equipped kitchen is any chefs dream.

If you prefer a more laid back getaway, you will enjoy the ambiance of our great room complete with a fireplace where you can unwind in front of a cozy fire in the late evening.

Spend your entire stay relaxing on The Lodge premises or venture out on a reasonable drive to many of the attractions the Lake Michigan counties of Manitowoc and Sheboygan, WI have to offer. Tour a submarine at the Manitowoc Maritime Museum, stroll through three stories of unbelievable kitchen and bathroom displays at the Kohler Design Center, try tackling the golf terrain at the famous Whistling Straits, catch a race at Road America in Elkhart Lake, or enjoy shopping, hiking, dining and other attractions the area has to offer.

No matter the season, The Lodge provides the perfect setting for any occasion; from a romantic retreat, to a family getaway, to a reunion with friends, we are open year round to make your stay an experience. The combination of rustic charm and modern amenities makes The Lodge a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

We welcome you to come experience the marvels The Lodge has to offer. No matter the size or age of your family, we have what you’re looking for. Tranquility, relaxation, time to reconnect, and memories to make.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a father of 5 children and recently built this property into a family-friendly getaway for them. I have lived in the area for nearly 15 years and purchased this 80 acre wooded property for my family to enjoy. We love being close to all the amenities of Elkhart Lake, Kohler, Sheboygan and Manitowoc yet cherish the privacy, closeness to nature and solitude available on this property. We look forward to sharing our little bit of paradise with others.

Why the Owner Chose Kiel, WI, USA:
This property was purchased as a primary residence for my family because of its natural beauty. In 2007 I built The Lodge as our guesthouse for the purposes of entertaining friends and housing large family functions. My family lives in the house adjacent to The Lodge year round.
