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.
Large home,4 bedrooms, including a master suite, 3 full baths, ON THE BEACH!

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 Oostburg
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!
Check-in: 4:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The property is very well maintained and managed.
This is our second stay here. It's a beautiful home with everything you need. After our first stay, one of us ordered sets of sheets that were the same brand as in the Master Bedroom. The views are fantastic. We've stayed at several lakefront homes in Wisconsin and everyone agrees this is the one we enjoy most. The ownership is very attentive. This most recent trip, one of us forgot a pillow, about $150 to replace. We notified the owner and he is making arrangements for it's return. They really go above and beyond to make your vacation stay a pleasant and memorable one.
Convenient and comfortable
The lake house was very comfortable and clean. It was conveniently located close to the main highway, but was still secluded enough to feel like you were at a woodsy lake house. I would definitely recommend this rental home for a family vacation.
I’m glad you enjoyed the house. It is nice to be a mile or two from the highway but very secluded at the same time. Hope you come back!
Another great stay!
This is our second year here and we can’t say enough of how awesome this house is. It is truly an escape from the stresses of city life and Sturgis the owner couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. It’s rignt on the beach so you get to enjoy the sounds of waves lapping at the shore while falling asleep or in the morning while watching the sun rise and having coffee. The house comes fully equipped with all that you need so you can sink into the beach life without a care as soon as you arrive. Enjoy building sandcastles or having a fire and roasting marshmallows. It’s all here! And the beds are comfy too! We will be back again!
Great house for family vacation
This is a great location and fantastic house right on the lake as most reviews state. We have stayed in several Oostburg houses and the reasons this one is better: 1. The main deck on the second floor is a nice vantage point. 2. The water quality in the house is very good. If you have stayed at other houses you know the water can be smelly and orange but that was minimal here. 3. The downstairs bedrooms, sitting area, and ping pong table are perfect for kids to have their own area. 4. Beach access is far less steep than many houses and there is a nice yard for the kids. 5. Garage access is a nice plus and there is a second refrigerator there which is very useful. 6. The owner is by far the most responsive and gracious in our experience. Highly recommend the house and the experience.
Thanks so much for the review! I try to make everyone's vacation as enjoyable as possible.I'm glad you enjoyed the house and the reasons you mentioned are the exact reasons I designed the house the way I did. Our kids would play downstairs and the adults would have their own space upstairs and everyone was much happier. You were great guests and i hope you come back!
Great family vacation!
8 adults and 1 grandchild plus our dog had a super time at the Serenity House. Lots of space to eat, play and rest. We especially enjoyed the upper deck where we could gather for coffee and watch the sunrise. The beach was lovely! Water was chilly but the sandy bottom was easy to walk and wade in. We also enjoyed a fire in the fire pit close to the beach almost every night. Only complaint was the queen bed on the lower level - my son and his wife said it was not very comfortable. Otherwise we had a super time!
I am glad you enjoyed the house and the beach! I strive to make everything as perfect as possible.No one has mentioned an uncomfortable bed in the past but I will monitor the situation and if there are other complaints I will try to figure out if the mattress is to hard or to soft. Thanks for staying at serenity and I hope you come back!
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!
I am glad you had a good time. It is also nice to hear that the house had all the supplies and necessities you were looking for. I try to anticipate most needs and each year, in the off season, I find more “necessities” for the house. Thanks again and please come back!
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.
