This 2 story home was built in 2002. The main living area, including the kitchen and master suite are on the second floor. This gives you uninterrupted views of the lake when you are in the house. There are 2 decks, 1 on the second floor and 1 at beach level next to the beach. One of the most important amenities that sets this home apart from other rentals are central air conditioning and no sea grass on the beach. Almost all of the beachfront rentals in the area have their beaches covered in sea grass. This is a very sharp bladed plant that makes the beach unusable. Although every room has a ceiling this home has central air which is very difficult to find in a rental in the area.The spacious master suite with a king bed has it's own double sink, 2 person shower, bathroom and a huge walk in closet.The suite faces the lake and has french doors leading out to the deck for morning coffee. With the doors open the sounds of the lake fills the room. The living room has floor to ceiling cathedral windows facing the lake as well as a fireplace.Leather furniture complete this beautiful room. There is also a flat screen TV, DVD player,and stereo with surround sound. Also on the second floor is another bedroom with a queen bed and huge closet.There is a full bath with a whirlpool tub next to this bedroom.The dinning area includes a table and chairs adjacent to the kitchen which has a built in island with seating for 8! The kitchen faces the lake with windows all around and 2 doors leading to the deck.The kitchen has hickory cabinets and porcelain counter tops.Stove, frig, microwave, dishwasher complete the kitchen. The laundry room(washer dryer) is next to the kitchen and has it's own small deck facing the woods. The second floor has maple floors in the living areas and a tile kitchen floor. The downstairs has 2 bedrooms, one queen and one bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds. There is also a full bath and large family room with floor to ceiling windows facing the lake.This room has a tv and dvd player and a pullout couch. This is a walkout family room to the beach. Next to the family room is a cedar paneled ping pong room that faces the lake with floor to ceiling windows as well as a 2 car attached garage.How nice is it to pull into the garage to unload you groceries when it is pouring rain. The beach is one of the best in the neighborhood. A quick walk north or south will show you that almost all of the other beaches are covered in sea grass. Sea grass is a long thin sharp bladed grass that makes the areas covered in sea grass unusable. There is ample lawn furniture on both decks and the beach. There is a hammock next to the beach deck. Both decks are made from composite material, no splinters! If you are looking for something a little smaller, I have another house on the same street listed under VRBO # 1240364.

About Sturgis Chadwick
I grew up and currently live and work in the Chicago area. As a kid I spent summer weekends in Door County and loved every minute of it. When I was older I discovered the Oostburg area. An hour and a half closer to home and sand beaches instead of rock. It was love at first sight.
Sturgis Chadwick purchased this House in 1991
Why Sturgis Chadwick chose Sheboygan County
When I bought this property in 1991 there was a very small cabin on the property. As my needs changed I designed the current home and had it built in 2002. I took my 10 years of experience living on the lake when I designed this house. Central air because if you only need it 2 or 3 weeks a year you need it 2 or 3 weeks a year. Prime living space on the second floor. There is no better way to see the beach and lake than to be on the second floor, with a deck.Hardwood and tile floors because you can't keep all the sand out of the house no matter how hard you try. The natural beauty is unique. Where else in the Midwest do have a beach on one side of you house and a forest of towering pines on the other?
What makes this House unique
Central air, second floor living,newest rental on the market, great views and the best beach!

Memorial Weekend getaway!
Location is really nice and only 2 hrs away from Chicago! The house is very spacious and equipped in everything you need! Lots of towels, beds/sheets are clean! Kitchen has pretty much everything you need. Close to town if you need to get something! Back yard and the views are amazing! Good Weber grill on the deck with additional gas bottles stored in the garage which was great because we did lots of grilling! Owner responds to all questions very quick so communication is good. We went with 8 adults and 2 childern and everyone had planty of space, they even have baby gates which came in very handy! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
This home is beautiful and we had a fantastic getaway. It's perfect for large groups. With two separate living/family room areas, lending additional space to be together, but yet not on top of one another. We had a wonderful time during our stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back with our sons and their families.
Thank you for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and found the house roomy and comfortable. I hope you come back soon!
Fantastic Beach Rental!
Wonderful property and well equipped house. Absolutely loved our 10 day stay here and can't wait to come back. Thank you Serenity Beach House!
Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The highest compliment I can have is a returning guest. Hope to see you again!
Great stay at the Chadwick's house!
The house was just as beautiful as the pictures online. It was also very clean and well-stocked. Mr. Chadwick sent out an email detailing everything that is supplied so you know exactly what you'll need to bring - which isn't a whole lot. He also lets you know nice places to go in the area which we found very helpful. The beds were comfortable (but really high which was a bit of a problem for me - a shorty). The beach was really nice and clean. You can swim in this part of the lake. We used the fire pit every night. It's a great property!
Thanks Mary, I'm glad you had a great time! I hope you come back next year and I will make sure there is a step stool for you! Thanks Again!
Lovely and comfortable home for a family gathering
We have gathered here for a family reunion for 3 years now, and have enjoyed staying at this home. It is well equipped and nicely furnished, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owner is responsive and attentive to any issues which may come up. Neighbors are friendly, and welcome us back each year. We hope to come again!
Thank you for coming back year after year! I'm glad you still find that my house fulfills your needs. If you come next year you will see that we have upgraded the stove. Thanks for being a great guest!
Vacation Aug 5 - 12, 2017 for 35th Wedding Anniverary
The house and grounds are very nice and very well maintained. We had six adults (me and my wife, four grown kids) and a teenager/grandson staying in the four bedroom, three bathroom, two family room house with a very spacious second story deck and a glassed-and-screened-in ground story porch. We had plenty of space for each other and we were very comfortable and relaxed the entire week. The beach is also very well maintained with a large deck and a very clean beach area. Fortunately the weather cooperated so that it was comfortable to be either just enjoying the beach and/or enjoying the lake too. We have been on a few one week vacations that on the last day we were more than ready to go home. But on this vacation we really wished we could have stayed at least several more days. It also helps that my wife is from the Sheboygan area, so we could easily find our way to several local sight seeing and eating places that we like.
The owner, Sturgis Chadwick, treated us very well and was quick to resolve a problem that we found with the older stove on the first night. We texted him to let him know there was a potential problem and he came the next morning to verify problem. By noon he had brought a new stove and he installed it with some friends by 12:30. He also checked with us a few times during the rest of the week to make sure things were going well.
We give the owner, Mr. Chadwick, and his house and property FIVE STARS for our review. We will definitely consider staying at his house again but we will try to book it for two weeks instead of just one, if possible. We highly recommend this house and grounds for a relaxing vacation.
Dan and Marian Lofgren,
Thanks Dan for the review! It was great to meet you and your family and I'm glad we could remedy the stove problem quickly. It was time for a new stove! I hope you come back next year. Thanks again for staying at serenity beach house.
It's the beach and Lake Michigan that draw guests to this area. Level white sand beaches and ocean size waves gives this Midwestern shoreline a Caribbean flavor. If you can tear yourself away from the beach and the spacious home there is plenty to do. Osstburg is small town surrounded by farm fields. Fresh eggs,produce,and even just made cheese is available nearby. There are apple orchards and strawberry fields in the area. The village of Kohler is nearby. Kohler has fine dining, shopping, a spa, and of course golf. Lots of golf. Also there are a number of other golf courses within a 20 minute car ride from the beach. The City of Sheboygan is 15 minutes away by car. Sheboygan has fine dining, shopping, a water park,charter boat Lake Michigan fishing and a tavern or two. They have a very nice YMCA,art galleries and the one or two taverns have great fish fries on Friday nights.If you are willing to travel there is antiquing to be found. The Kettle Moraine State park is approximately 25 miles west of Oostburg. It is popular for hiking and scenic car rides.
